Vibrant Vases

Today’s card is bright and cheerful – perfect as we just had some beautiful weather here in North Georgia and the early daffodils are starting to peak their heads out of the ground. However, today we’re back a normal winter day.

Today’s card is my February Thank You card that I created to send out to all of my stamping friends who place an order with me.

The two step stamp set, Vibrant Vases is easy to use and because of the bold images you won’t have a problem lining things up when stamping. It’s also perfect for the Stamparatus if you prefer to go that way.

And did you know that this stamp set coordinates with the Vase Builder Punch (147040) found in the Annual Catalog? That makes it a great way to make this punch even more versatile.

I’ve put together a quick video tutorial for you along with a PDF.

Flowering Desert

The Flowering Desert stamp set can be found in the Occasions Catalog and is perfect for those of us who love succulents and cactus.

These plants are beautiful and as some one without a green thumb perfect for me since I tend to forget to water my plants. lol. I remember as a child my Aunt who lives in Arizona gave us our first cactus and I can remember my mother’s excitement as the little babies came along. She would carefully transplant and our collection grew. I’m not so sure my little brother has the same memories tho since he had a run it with her favorite one summer. Ouch!

These cards today use the Flowering Desert stamp set – so why not check them out?

Meant to Be Merci Treat Holder Tutorial

Merci chocolates are so yummy that I thought I’d create some treat holders to share them – plus it stops me from eating them since they seem to call my name! So I reached for the Meant to Be Bundle and got to work.

Here is what I came up with

This little treat holder holds 3 Merci Chocolates – a perfect size for just a little taste of chocolate when you want it.

I love the way the heart shape is at the top without any card stock behind it. Want to know how I made them? Here’s my video tutorial.
