Two Tag Die

I love meeting new stamping friends and the other day during my Free Card Friday event one of my guests asked me about an easy way to create a tag for a gift she wanted to give someone soon. Here is what I came up with quickly.

First thing that came to mind was the Big Shot and the Two Tags Die. What is easier than using the Two Tags Die? Pick you card stock and just run it through – it’s that simple.

We chose to decorate the Two Tags Die using our stamp set Betty’s Blossoms, just introduced in our NEW 2012-2013 Catalog. (Don’t have a 2012-2013 Catalog yet? Contact me today and I’ll be happy to get one to you.)

Isn’t it cute – and of course we needed a little sentiment for the inside

Mixed Bunch

Last week was my monthly SINKS training meeting where I get together with fellow demonstrators and stamp. It’s a lot of fun and I’ve made such wonderful friends along the way at these get togethers.

If this is something that you might find interesting – why not check it out? Just give me a call if becoming a demonstrator is something you might be interested in doing.

Did you see this good looking dude in the corner? Shhh… that is my darling hubby – who is such a great sport hanging out with me at these events. This time he decided to play on his lap top verses stamping with us.

My friend Teresa, made this card as a swap and I thought I would share it with you today. Don’t you love the rich colors she used? Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple are two of this year’s NEW In Colors just introduced in the 2012-2013 Catalog last month. If you haven’t gotten a copy for yourself I’d be happy to give you one. Just give me a call to stop by and pick one up. Don’t live close? I’d be happy to mail a copy to you.

A Bright Blossoms Thank You

I really enjoy using the Bright Blossoms stamp set from the NEW 2012-2013 Catalog. The Designer Series Paper that coordinates with it is so bright and cheerful. It just brings a smile to my face.

Here is a card that I made using the Bright Blossoms stamp set. I’m always in need of thank you cards and I thought this one turned out cute.

Here is the inside – don’t forget to stamp it too.

I also made a matching envelope with our Simply Scored Diagonal Plate and Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper. It was so quick and easy to do it can be addicting! All you have to do is follow the directions that come along with it and you’re off. You can click HERE to see an early post and video of the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.
