Special Treat with a Hug.

This “Sending You A Bear Hug” card is made with the Stamp of the Month (SOTM), S1907 Bear Hugs. It’s a twist on the stamp set, not showing the bear. There is a special treat in the card for someone!

  • Use the Sapphire Embroidery Thread to embellish the sentiment along with some pennants.
  • Tip: Take the left over zip strips or scraps to create half inch strips and dove-tail the ends. This is a great use of scraps and adds to a card.
  • Create a little pocket in the card.
  • Slip a note in there and a little gift card. Everyone loves a special treat!

Who knew what you could do with a paper clip?

Who knew what you could do with a paper clip? I received this fantastic Happy Mail and I just have to share these paper clip creations with you! My friend April sent me this cuties above. With her permission, I watermarked and posted them on the blog. Here are some close ups:

You can see how you wrap the paper around the clip and still leave it usable. Add some charms and beeds and you’ve created a bit of fun for a cook book or journal. Here are some tassels (cut from CTMH Decorative Borders thin cut dies)

The first ones are made with retired paper. The 2nd set is with Craft On paper (love). Here’s a few more pictures of paper clip art:

So grab a few paper clips and have some fun! =) Who knew?!

You’re The Best!

“You’re the Best” is created with the Share the Joy Special that ends in a few weeks. Yikes, time goes so very fast. I can’t stop creating with this card front die and the stamps. You’ll want to pick this one up for sure.

To create this, chose the three stamps – flowers, heart flight path, and the bees from “Bunches of Joy” stamp set (included in the Share the Joy bundle or you can purchase it seperately for $18.95 USD). Because of the bees, I went with Lemon and Black, adding in Slate.

Cut a few extra pennants so that you can layer the main pennant. Stamp the sentiment “You’re the Best” on the White Daisy pennant. Use a journaling pen to create the stiched outline which matches the flight pattern stamp. Add stitching to the card base as well to continue to pull elements in across the card, balancing with the rule of three.

Speaking of the rule of three, stamp, color, and fussy cut out three more bees. Put two on the tag and on in the upper right corner of the card in one of the open circles. Use 3D foam tape to create some dimension.
