Whole Latte Love

Since everyone is enjoying seeing the stamps from the Patterned Occasions stamp set that you get free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration, I couldn't resist posting one more card with another stamp from the set.

"Whole Latte Love " is the perfect way to say to that coffee loving friend that they mean alot to you!  I used Cherry Cobbler ink along with the polka dot Cherry Cobbler designer paper.  I used the Floral Framelits to cut out the layers in Very Vanilla and Early Espresso. I thought the ribbon and brad at the bottom "dressed up" the card.

Happy Birthday Cupcake

I had so many compliments on the Thanks a Ton card that I decided to feature another one of the cute stamps from the Sale-A-Bration promotion.  This is another of the stamps in the Patterned Occasions stamp set that you can get free with a $50 order.

What little girl doesn't like pink and cupcakes?  I know my great niece Sarah does!  The color of the paper and ink is Melon Mambo from the Brights Collection.  I love this color! 

Did you notice the embossing on the card?  Embossing really makes a card stand out and it is so easy to do.  This embossing folder is Stampin Up's Fancy Fan.  It really makes a nice background for the card.  I again used the Labels Collection Framelit set to layer the cute cupcake stamp. 
The ribbon on the bottom is the 5/8" Organza ribbon.  It adds a nice finishing touch to the card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate any comments!

thanks a ton!

Hey Everyone!   Stampin' Up has their Sale-A-Bration promotion event going on right now so every $50 you spend you get to choose a free Sale-A-Bration product.  One such product is the Patterned Occasions stamp set.  It includes five really cute stamps including the cute elephant in the above photo!

In the above card I also used the Big Shot Framelits Labels Collection to make the really cool frame around the elephant.  The Framelits can be used for so many different products.  You get 6 different sizes that you can layer like I did above or just use one to frame a cute stamp.

Hope you all enjoyed my "Thanks a Ton" card.  I appreciate you stopping by!

Now that I have a blog it has motivated me to keep my creative thoughts going, as simple as they may be.  With Valentines around the corner, I have hearts on my mine and just made a little 3 x 3 card I can give to friends on Valentines Day.  Simple and quick, these use the I heart hearts stamp set from Stampin' Up and the Heart to Heart punch which allows you to punch the stamps out after you stamp them for a wonderful 3-D effect when you attach them with dimensionals.  The phrase is from the Stampin' Up stamp set A Word For You.  Hope you enjoy this simply and quick Valentine!
