Beauty of Friendship

Today’s cards continue the nature theme this week. This stamp set is part of another fun Suite of products call the Beauty of the Earth. Filled with natures images and colors it is a wonderful option for creating year round cards and masculine cards.

This Suite of products has it all – stamps, dies, a 3D Embossing Folder and Designer Series Paper! Who can resist that for hours of creating?

Check out these lovely cards using the Beauty of Friendship Bundle and other items from the Suite. This first card has a ton of texture, both in look and feel since it uses both the Bark 3D embossing folder and the Designer Series Paper.

And how about some simple 2 step stamping using Pear Pizzazz and Evening Evergreen Classic Inks?

A bit of sparkle and shine was added with the Gold 3/8″ Fine Art Ribbon (154561). The Tailored Tag Punch (145667) makes this sentiment quick and easy too. Punch a second tag shape, cut it in half and layer the sentiment for another pop of color. And how about this cute idea? Use the shape to create grass and our Loose Flower Flourishes (155808) add a pop of color and flowers to the grassy area. These flowers come in 3 colors and 2 different sizes giving your lots of flower fun!

This next card has wonderful rich colors and perfect for the men in our lives since it uses the rich Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim (152472).

And finally this card is wrapped up in a Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon (153658)

whew! Love the variety this Suite gives us. I think the Beauty of Friendship is a wonderful option for our crafting needs. What do you think?

Timeless Tropical Treats

Love quick and easy treats? If so our Ombre Gift Bags might be just the think you are looking for since they make creating a treat quick and easy. I was inspired to create my own little gift bag by a swap that I received (you can see it HERE).

Make them up ahead and simply slide your goodie inside when you’re ready.

Bags are 4 3/4″ x 7″ so they’ll hold quite a bit too. This batch I whipped up for a little Team gift for our Meeting, I filled them with a sweet little treat for my along with a little something I picked up on the Maui Incentive Trip in May.

They were a hit for sure.

Want to see how I made them? I’ve got a quick little video tutorial and PDF for you.
