Tiny Teacup

I used one of the single stamps from the front of the SU catalog for this card called Tiny Teacup. I cut the hello away from the cup and just mount it on an acrylic block when needed. I used calypso coral, pool party, and wisteria wonder along with whisper white. I also used the dotted embossing folder with my Big Shot, a few circle punches, and a bit of white ribbon. Look closely on the middle teacup and you will see a butterfly from  beautiful butterflies and a tiny pearl. The teacup circles are raised up on dimensionals. Simple!

I love this set and I love marina mist. Put them together and look what you get. I embossed the background with elegant bouquet. Then I stamped and cut out the bird cages, attaching them with dimensionals. I added a rhinestone to the bottom of each cage and a little piece of marina ribbon to the top with a glue dot. I cut some leaves out of old olive and the little leaves die using my Big Shot. I punched some flowers with the flower from itty bitty shapes punches. I added a pearl to each flower. The words are from petite pairs. Are you using your Big Shot? What are you waiting for???

Love and Sympathy

Simple but beautiful! I used very vanilla, pear pizzazz, and regal rose. It works best to stamp the words first (early espresso ink), then the flower. I used markers and colored on the rubber. The background layer is texturized using the lattice embossing folder and my Big Shot. I did use dimensionals to pop up the flower layer. The dimensionals stick to the embossed paper much better than SNAIL.

Stitched Stocking

Christmas is in the air! I made this using a new set in the Holiday mini catalog called Stitched Stockings. It is really great because it has a matching punch so you don't have to cut out the stockings. The backgrounds is textured using the new embossing folder called Snow Burst and the Big Shot. Merry Christmas is from Four the Holidays. I used real red, garden green, and whisper white. The red satin bow has a fire circle brad on it. The red stocking has a rhinestone. The stockings are popped up on dimensionals. Wouldn't this be great for you Christmas card this year?

Snowman Petal Cone Box

I think this is one of the cutest thing I have ever made. I love snowmen. Making one out of paper is about as close as I get to them because I live in the south. Not much snow in Memphis! I made his body out of the petal cone die. After I cut the two shapes out of whisper white I scored and cut 11/2 inches off the bottom. There are several videos on youtube on how to do this if you need a visual other than the one above. I flipped the box over to make his body. You can still put light weight treats inside. I sponged over all the edges in marina mist, added 2 marina mist paper buttons (Boho Blossom punch), and taped on some marina mist dotted ribbon. His head is a 21/2 circle punch with another half circle cut out of Just Add Cake striped paper for his hat. Then I sponged marina mist around that. I added a 23/4x1/4 band- corner rounded then sponged in marina mist. The ball on the hat is the largest flower from the Boho blossom punch, sponged. I tied a mini jingle bell on some white twine and attached it with a glue dot. His black eyes are punched from the small circle in the itty bitty shapes pack highlighted with a white gel pen. His pumpkin pie nose is a petal from the medium boho blossom punch cut out squiggly and sponged with pumpkin pie. I used a black marker to add his mouth (freehand), then I used a dauber to add the pretty in pink cheeks. I used red sticky tape to attach his head to his body.
