Mini Gift Bags

 I have a card to share inspired by the latest Waffle Flower Challenge today!  I used the cute new Little Gifts 3-D Die for this birthday card:

I cut out a bunch of the mini bags and toppers to begin with.  Some were cut from cardstock and others from patterned paper.  I added a couple of patterns and accessories from the Little Gifts Stamp Set.  The mini tag also comes from there!  Once they were all stamped, I placed them on top of a panel cut from the Lacy Layers 2 Die.  I added a sentiment from the Bowtiful Stamp Set as well.

I chose a fun, bright pink cardbase for this one.  I used the little swirl and dot stamps from the Peace on Earth Stamp Set to create a birthday-worthy background.  Stamping it with Versamark gave it a tone on tone look.

I hope you'll join us for our challenge this month!  The inspiration colors are so fun this time around!  Pop over to the challenge post on the Waffle Flower Blog for more information!

A Bright and Cheerful Christmas Card

Who's counting down the days until Christmas?  I have to admit- I am already excited about the holidays being here!  I was happy for back to school and Halloween stuff is out everywhere now!  Just a few more weeks and we will be seeing Christmas everywhere!

I love bright and cheerful Christmas cards!  For my Watch It Wednesday post on the Waffle Flower Crafts blog this week, I thought I would try to create a card using Christmas lights as my inspiration.  Here is how it turned out:

I used the Shower Stamp Set to create the polka-dotted background.  I stamped the bubbles in Waffle Flower's new dye ink pads in Chirp! Chirp!, My Pleasure, You Said What?, Happy Go Lucky, and New Fish in Pond.  Aren't they pretty?  I also stamped over them with white pigment ink.

The sentiment is from the new Peace on Earth Stamp Set.  I love the scripty font :)  Here, I heat embossed it using white powder.  I added that panel to a layer from the Pinking Layers Die and added it to my bright pink card base.  I added a bit of twine and some adorable jingle bells that I found in my stash.

If you'd like to see this all in action, I made a video!  It is up on the Waffle Flower blog today and also on their YouTube channel.  Pop over to check it out!

Thanks for stopping by today!  It's been awhile since I've blogged and I keep meaning to get back into it.  With school and everything, it's been a little harder than I thought to find time!  Hopefully I will be back soon with some cards I made for the Waffle Flower release :)
