Roses are Red...Rose Red!

I'm still on this embossing color on color layer kick, along with the ruffled ribbon and a decorative rose.

Stamps:  Fifth Avenue Floral, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Whisper White

Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Rose Red

Other:  Rose Red seam binding, Sticky Strip, decorative Rose (Rose Red), Mini Glue Dots, Big Shot, Finial Press embossing folder
For an added touch - emboss your envelope flap too!  I love the elegant look of it.

Happy Birthday Viv & Julie!

My friends, Viv and Julie, are both celebrating their birthday this Thursday.  Happy birthday girls!  This is your card!  Sorry, but you both get the same one this time.  :)

To make this ruffled ribbon, lay a strip of Sticky Strip down first.  Attach one end of your ribbon (I started at the top), and just pinch and stick it down as you go along to the bottom.

Scallop Envelope Box

Four scallop envelopes taped together to make a small box. 

Stamps:  Oval All

Ink:  black

Other:  Big Shot, Scallop Envelope die, Large & Scallop Oval punches, Flowers (from the Occasions Mini catalog), mini glue dots, Sticky Strip

Fore U Fancy Favor Box

I just got these medium size Sizzlet letters and LOVE THEM! 

No stamping in this though...EEEK!  You might not be able to see the divets in the golf ball, but they are there.  I used the Texturz Plates, but we decided at camp that the Dots embossing folder would produce a much more pronounced divet situation.  Free hand cut the golf tee.

Other:  Big Shot, Timeless Type sizzlet alphabet, Fancy Favor die, 1 3/8" circle punch, Dots texturz plates, Sticky Strip, liquid glue (the little green bottle)

Carrot Petal Cone treat holder

Two petal cones taped together to make this "carrot cone".  I broke my thumb two weeks ago, so it was very hard to cut out that little flower, but I did it!  Yeah!

Also, you can't really tell, but I direct-to-paper'd the tangerine cones with tangerine ink to give it the rough look of carrots.  There are Jumbo eyelets on the sides too.

Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Old Olive

Other:  Big Shot, Petal Cone die, Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon, crop-o-dile, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, Word Window/Modern Label punches, Sticky Strip, mini glue dots

Tulips brooch or pin

I need to glue a pin back to the back of this.  There is just a piece of Rose Red cardstock taped to the very back, to cover up the seam binding.

I used my 2-way glue pen to attach the stamped piece to the window pane.  The dots were not nearly as visible once it dried completely...I took the picture too early. 

Stamps:  A Flower for all Seasons

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Rose Red

Ink:  Black

Other:  Beveled Window pane (the largest size), Rose Red seam binding, 2-way glue pen, craft knife, Markers (Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi)

St. Patrick's Day petal cone treat holder

This is a flatter treat holder - to sit on a plate, or a placemat, or someone's desk...

Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes, So Happy for You (SAB)

Cardstock:  Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White

Ink:  Wild Wasabi

Other:  Big Shot, Petal Cone die, Polka dots embossing folder, Sticky Strip

Flower for All Seasons - Easter

Very simple Easter card.  I really like this embossing folder for a no-layer card.

Ink:  Black, Wild Wasabi

Other:  Markers (Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Peach Parfait, So Saffron, Marina or Bashful - I can't remember)

Time for Cherry Blossoms?

It's almost time for they Cherry Blossoms to bloom right down the road in D.C.!  This stamp reminds me of them so much. 

I really like this tone-on-tone look with embossing a layer and putting it on the same color card base.

Ink:  Black

Other:  Crumb Cake and Pretty in Pink markers, Pretty in Pink 3/8" Taffeta ribbon, sticky strip, embossing buddy, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Big Shot, Finial Press embossing folder
