You Made my Day

I am going to continue with yesterday's theme of using a sentiment from a Sale-a-bration stamp set.  This one is from Best Day Every and I also used the background dot stamp from the same set.
I added some Painted Blooms designer series paper and use the spiral punch to made a border on that piece.

To a Great Friend

The Sale-a-bration stamp set Simply Wonderful has some really good sentiments and I used one for this card and punched it out with the Note Tag punch.
In addition, I used the Regarding Dahlias stamp set and some Stacked with Love and Birthday Bash designer series paper.

Hello Baby!

During the card making session I mentioned yesterday, I also made sure to get some baby cards made and below are a couple put together with some scraps of designer series paper and the Little Sunshine stamp set.

The "hello, baby" pieces are die cut with the Word Bubbles framelits and I added a little washi tape to each of the congratulations sentiments.

I always love to add baker's twine or something similar to a card so I threw a little of that on each one as well.

So Very Much

One afternoon I was on a mission to get a pile of cards created and this was one that came out of the stamping session.  I used the Kinda Eclectic and Simply Wonderful (SAB 2015) stamp sets and the Butterfly thinlit dies.

I had several pieces of All is Calm designer series paper left over from a stamp a stack card that I retired and used a piece of that on each one as well.

Blackberry Flower Patch

I used the Flower Patch stamp set to create a background image on a piece of card stock and cut it into several pieces to make a few cards.  Just like making your own designer series paper really...

Behind the custom paper, I added a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock that was embossed with the Large Polka Dot folder and then added some Hello Honey stitched ribbon.

Typeset Blend

Realizing I had not pulled out my Perfect Blend stamp set for quite awhile, I decided to make a couple cards using it and some scraps from my scrap bin. 

I stamped the cup images on Very Vanilla and Typeset specialty paper and cut out the pieces.  Then I added a little color with my Coastal Cabana blendabilities markers.

The sentiments are punched with the hexagon punch and on the card above, I added some 7/8" Sahara sand lace trim and a piece of Flashback designer series paper.

You have seen the basic part of the card above a time or two, I guess I made too many of this layer for a project at one time, LOL!
