Thank You Big Time!

The new Animal Expedition Suite on pages 26-27 in the Annual Catalog is going to be a big hit with kids (or anyone who is a kid at heart).

The Animal Outing Stamp Set is my new go-to stamp set.  I'm sure I will be using this set over and over for thank you, birthday, anniversary, and even baby cards. This stamp set is part of the Animal Outing Bundle (purchase together and save 10%).  

Here is the card I have to share with you today:

Animal Outing Card-2 6-18

Can you see the subtle brick wall in the background?  I used the brick pattern in the Pattern Party Decorative Masks along with the NEW Big Shot Embossing Mats to create that subtle look.  With the new Embossing Mats, you can make your own embossing folder using any decorative mask or thinlit/framelit dies.

Here are the products I used to make this card:

  • Animal Outing Bundlet (Wood-148323; Clear-148324)
  • Big Shot Embossing Mats (146327)
  • Pattern Party Decorative Masks (144103)
  • Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372)
  • Night of Navy Medium Baker's Twine (146336)

Masculine Birthday Card!

My husband's birthday is coming this week, so I sat down and made this great birthday card for him using the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper and the beautiful Night of Navy 3/8" Corduroy Ribbon...yes you heard that right...Corduroy Ribbon!

Celebrate You-Masc Far

Here is a close up of the card to show off the Corduroy Ribbon.

Celebrate You-Masc Close

Along with the designer series paper, it's the ribbon that
makes this card masculine. 

My husband is going to love it!

If course this punch is part of a bundle...the Truly Tailored Bundle.  The Truly Tailored Stamp Set is part of the bundle and I've shown it below.
