Birthday Flowers & Dots

I made this card for my husband’s grandmother. He suggested mailing her a card but I told him that was impossible because this one was BIG and bulky!

The card base is chocolate chip, layered with Chocolate Chip DSP in this polka dot pattern. As for the flowers, I made them by punching different colored card stock  with the Scallop Circle Punch. Then, I sprayed the scallop circles with water, crumpled them up, and let them dry. I added a white Basic Brad in the center of each flower, topped with a Rhinestone Jewel.

In the background, I used Apricot Appeal card stock, layered with Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. Using the sponge dauber, I added Certainly Celery ink to the raised portions.

The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Pretty in Pink card stock, then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. To give it more interest, I sponged the edges with Pretty in Pink ink and added white dots with the White Gel Pen.

Valentine Note Card

I like the size of this card for a Valentine. It would make a good Valentine for kids in school, or attached to a gift for a friend. This notecard is made from Pretty in Pink card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ folded in half. I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on a strip of Real Red card stock and layered it behind a 3 3/4″ square of Chocolate Chip DSP.

The stamp is from I {Heart} Hearts, stamped in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock. I punched it out with the Full Heart Punch and layered it onto a Real Red heart I made using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit. That was attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Tote-ally Tess: Sending a Little Love


I just love this Tote-ally Tess stamp. I guess I never got on the Stamping Bella kick so this is all so new and exciting to me! Since this is a Valentine’s day card, I stuck with the classic (in my mind) Valentine colors–pink, red, and chocolate. Speaking of chocolate, I just had a great idea!! Tess could be holding a chocolate, or a chocolate heart box! I’ll get on that but for now, I’ll tell you about this card.

The base is Kraft card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper in the polka dot pattern. I stamped Tess onto whisper white card stock in Chocolate chip ink and colored her in with my Stampin Up Markers. The heart she’s holding was made with the Small Heart Punch and Real Red card stock. I attached it with a Stampin Dimensional. Next to her, I stamped the “love you much” from Well Scripted in Real Red ink.

I layered the stamped image on Pink Pirouette card stock and adhered it to the Chocolate Chip DSP with Stampin Dimensionals. Then, I tied some 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon around the DSP and attached that to the Kraft base with Stampin Dimensionals again for a layered effect.
