Blog Candy Winner!

Today someone is going to be the lucky winner of last Friday's Blog Candy. Last week I asked the following question:

"Now that the Occasions Mini Catalog has been out for a little over a month what's your favorite stamp set or product and why? "

And the winner of the Pom Pom Trim in two colors and Felt Flowers is

 Stamp Magic

who had this to say:

"I'm in love with the Framelits! They work so well with the coordinating stamp sets. I love having the larger sized tags without having to cut around them because they're too big for a punch, or too difficult to line up with a die cut. "

Thanks for playing along Stamp Magic. Please email me your address and I will get your blog candy in the mail tomorrow!

Come back tomorrow for a green Saturday Swap for St. Patricks Day!

Masculine Birthday

MY Designer Cuts Cards & Envelopes

This is my design using the Designer Cuts Cards & Envelopes from the Occasions Mini Catalog . I used the same concept as the card in the catalog but I made it my own by using my own colors and theme. Again, this card was made in about 10 minutes which make the Designer Cuts Cards & Envelopes great to have on hand for those last minute cards.

Stamps: Loving Thoughts
Ink: Basic Black
Card stock:Designer Cuts Cards & Envelopes, Basic Gray
Accessories: Silver Foil Smooch Spritz, Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon

Designer Cuts Cards & Envelopes

This is my take on the card on page 9 of the Occasions Mini Catalog using the Designer Cuts Cards & Envelopes. I just love these because they make it so simple to make a quick card. You'll notice I used a different sentiment as I don't have the stamp set used in the catalog. Aways keep in mind that when your CASEing something use what you have, and if you don't have a specific stamp set find one that will work in it's place!Come back tomorrow when I show you my own design using the Designer Cuts Cards.

Stamps:Loving Thoughts

Saturday Swap

Today's swap is from my friend Kelly. This card is her rendition of the sample card inside the Occasions Mini Catalog using the Hostess set Up in the Air.  I love how she incorporated  the Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper and brads with the Adorning Accents Edgelits.

Saturday Swap

Here is a swap I recieved from my friend Mindy. She has such a simple yet elegant style to her cards. I love the way she embossed the stamped detail in clear and then inked over the image in the Crumb Cake.
