Artfully Layered Card with Vellum Tip

Artfully-layered-card-with-vellumHere's a birthday card made with the Artfully Layered Bundle and a vellum tip.  The summery, tropical feel of this card is nice for late spring and summer birthdays here in North America.

When using vellum, you have to be a little sneaky with your adhesive so that it doesn't show through the other side.  In this short video on YouTube, you can see how the placement of the greenery hides the adhesive.

Teacher Appreciation Gift

Teacher-appreciation-1Today's project is a little tag made with the Sweet Songbirds Bundle (English) [158727] from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog for Teacher Appreciation Week.

Mia graduated from pre-school this week and she gave her teachers this sweet flowering plant with a little handmade tag.

If you have been following me, you know that we have been caring for our 92-year young dad after a lengthy stay in the hospital.  We are getting him set up so that he can remain in his home with everything that he needs.  So...I have not had much time to play with all my new Stampin' Up! goodies but I did make time to make these tags for Mia. :)

Teacher-appreciation-2

My new Decorative Circle Punch [159174] had not yet arrived so an old circle punch was used for the bird.  You could also stamp and punch the bird with the coordinating bird punch. The sentiment is also punched with a retired punch but you can just cut a 3/4" strip of paper for the sentiment.  Mia's mom just wrote the teachers' names and that it was from Mia on the back of the tag.

Teacher-appreciation-week-3Here are the supplies used for this tag:

Thank You Card with Stampin' Up! Hello Beautiful

Thank-you-card-hello-beautiful-1Here's a fun thank you card created with the Stampin' Up! Hello Beautiful Bundle (English) [158047].   The abstract stamps and shapes can really make some pretty and unique cards.  You can see another card, a fun fold, that was made with the Hello Beautiful Bundle HERE.

Another element that really contributes to this card is the coordinating paper, DSP.  It has a variety of abstract and fun prints with splashes of gold.  Making intentional die cuts with that hexagon die can really show off that metallic shine.
