All the way from 5th Avenue!

Look how beautiful this tri-fold card is! The inside is stamped with the Fifth Avenue Floral set (page 106 of your Idea Book & Catalog) The outside folds are done with the Textured Impressions Die "Manhattan Flower" (page 202 of your Idea Book & Catalog). This Die for your Big Shot Machine was designed to coordinate with the Fifth Avenue Floral set. This Die creates an elegant, embossed image!

Pop-up Die Video!

Last chance to view this "Pop- Up" Die VIDEO before it is archived! Please click HERE to view!


This card was made with the "Priceless" set and the "Petal Pizzazz" set! This picture really does not do this card justice! I used the Almost Amethysist for the card body with the Elegant Eggplant for the scalloped strip and the stamping!
Hope you like it!

Big Shot Boxes Galore!

Here are some CUTE boxes made with the Big Shot! There is something for anytime of year!
Get those Top Note and Scallop Circle Dies out and see what you can create!

Shades of Color

This card was made with the Petal Pizzazz set. I stamped the same image on three different colors cardstock. Then I randomly cut them up into thirds and put them back together! This technique works well with a bolder type image stamp. (The fine line styles are much harder to line up!)

Day 4..."COMMENT A DAY" Contest!

I know that I am posting a bit early! This is day 4 and counts as May 7th. It's only a couple hours early!

This card was made from the "Many Mower" stamp set in the Occassions Mini Catalog! This is a GREAT card for Father's Day!

Ready? Set? Go…….To enter Day 4 of the "Comment a Day" Contest leave me a comment in the comments section of this post about anything at all.

Day 3...."COMMENT A DAY" Contest

This is a card that I did for my "Mighty Mini" swap. It has the same layout as the Petal Pizzazz card shown in the post for Day One of the "Comment A Day" Contest. Both cards have a band as the front and a sentiment is found under the flap. They are standard card size 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. The band is 8 1/2" long and 2" wide and scored at 4 1/4". I used sticky strip to adhere the back half of the band to the back of the single layer of the cards main body. In both I used Dimensionals to adhere the focal point to the band. This is a great way to use up scrap pieces of cardstock and still make a full card!

Ready? Set? Go!…….To enter Day 3 of the "Comment a Day" Contest leave me a comment in the comments section of this post about what product or accessory you tend to use a LOT in your paper crafting. For example, I love to use Chocolate Chip CS and use it on virtually every card I make.

Day 2...."Comment A Day"

Here is a picture of a box made with the Scallop Envelope. My stampin group made theirs for Valentine's Days. This picture is from Dannie's Designs! She turned hers into a Halloween version. I know that Halloween is a long ways away, but start thinking about all the other upcoming holidays and how you can use this little box to give candy or other trinkets to friends, family, teachers and co-workers! Thanks to Dannie for sharing her box!

Ready? Set? Go!….To enter Day 2 of the "Comment a Day" Contest leave me a comment in the comments section of this post about what gets YOUR creative juices flowing (or if you don’t have a particular tip, then simply leave me a comment), and if you have a blog, type in your blog address right in the comment itself so I can go check it out.

Okay, so what’s this about a new "Comment a Day" Contest? Well frankly, I miss hearing from you! Every time I have a contest or give-away I hear from you guys. In between, things get pretty quiet - so quiet in fact that I sometimes wonder if anyone is out there reading my blog, or whether the cards posted were such duds that you didn’t want to hurt my feelings *lol*! Needless to say, I LOVE hearing what you have to say - what you like, what you don’t like, what you want to see more of, what’s going on in your life, etc. SO…….for the next FIVE days I’ve decided to run a "Comment a Day" Contest. I’m going to post a project everyday from now until May 8th. What I would love for you to do, is to stop by and leave me a comment each of the days I post. Some days it will be a comment about anything at all, other days, I’ll ask a specific question.On Friday, May 8th - I will draw the name of one person that left me a comment from each day (so one person from today, one from tomorrow…and so on, until May 8th), and those 5 lucky winners will win a package of POP UP GLUE DOTS. All numbers will be drawn via random # selector at Math

Ready? Set? Go!…….leave me a comment about anything at all in the comments section of this post to enter your name into DAY 1 of my new "Comment a Day" contest!
