Super Special Saturday Ice Cream Pop Up Card

I love making the pop up box cards as they fold flat for mailing and allow the recipient to receive a beautiful 3D card. As the temperatures are warming up it is time to enjoy ice cream. I made this card with a stamp set and die set from Pink and Main and colored the images with alcohol markers. Make sure to treat yourself to an ice cream cone today!

Super Special Saturday Pink and Main Tea Pot Cards

Recently I was introduced to Pink and Main stamps and dies by the owner of Inky Hot Mess in Geneva New York. I absolutely LOVE the high quality stamps and dies! I made this set of four tea cup cards and tea pot with the Pink and Main box card die and formed a box out of the die. I cut out Pink and Main Shades of Spring designer paper to form the tea pot to cover the box and added the celebrate die from the box card die set. I used the arch tag die set to cut out the front of the cards and adhered them to 4 inches x 3 inches white card bases. I stamped the Perfect Blend images with black memento ink and colored the images with Shin Hin alcohol markers. After coloring the images I die cut the images with the Perfect Blend die cuts. I love how the set of four cards came out and entering them in the Pink and Main Challenge 30 Anything Goes. What do you think of the project?

Super Special Saturday Stampin Up Share What You Love One Sheet Wonder Cards and Note Box

The note card box came with Stampin Up embellishments that I used on several recent projects posted on the blog. The box was perfect to hold 8 4 1/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches cards. I made these cards from one sheet of 12 inches x 12 inches designer series paper. I cut four pieces 5 1/4 inches x 4 inches, 2 pieces 2 inches x 4 1/4 inches and 2 pieces 2 inches x 5 1/2 inches and stamped the thank you sentiment on all eight cards. Makes a great gift of hand made thank you cards that everyone can use!

Super Special Saturday Forsythia Wreath

This past Thursday I had the honor to show a great group of ladies how to make lilacs using the Heartfelt Creations lilac stamps and dies. Everyone had a grand time and went home with some lovely lilac accessories. As I was getting ready to leave I noticed a forsythia on the hostess’s door. She saw my mind going and I said to her look at your wreath forsythia flowers have four petals and a very similar shape to lilacs. I am going to go home and play around and see if I can make a wreath. So I used CTMH canary yellow paper stamped with CTMH cream brulee ink. I shaped the flowers the opposite way from making the lilac flowers in the Heartfelt Creations shaping mold. I placed HEart of Gold prills in the center of each flower. The leaves are die cut with Stampin Up old olive paper. What do you think of the wreath? I am entering the wreath in the Crafting with Friends Anything Goes challenge.

Super Special Saturday Triangular Rose Box

This little box literally takes less than five minutes to make. You can create the triangular box in almost any size as long as you start with a square piece of paper. I used 8 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches black card stock to make the base of the box. Then I cut three 4 inches by 4 inches square and cut them on the diagonal to cover the triangles on the top of the box. I made and added a rose using Heartfelt Creations stamp and die. Directions to properly fold the box can be located at:

Super Special Saturday Extra Rainbow and Mice Card

On Friday about 17 inches of snow fell in a little over 12 hours. I took advantage and played in the craft room. Recently I discovered a new company that has stamps and dies called Pink and Main.
