Pocketful of Daisy Delight Tissue holder

These little tissue holders were inspired by a video from Elizabeth Shannon I saw on Youtube.  I changed the dimensions slightly to fit a pack of Puffs Plus with lotion facial tissues.  I used Dapper Denim cardstock and the Burlap stamp as the background.  I stamped off before stamping on the cardstock.  I cut a pocket using the Pocketful of Sunshine bundle 145345.  I again stamped the background with the burlap stamp and the pocket stitching details from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.  The little bless you tag is also from the Pocket framelits 143750 and I hand wrote the bless you on the tag.  The large Daisy is from the Daisy Delight Bundle 145361.  I stamped the daisy in Sweet Sugarplum ink 141395 with Daisy Delight stamp set 143669 and punched it with the daisy punch 143713.  A clear faceted gem 144142 colored with the light Rich Razzleberry Stampin' blend marker 144584 completes the daisy along with a little Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush 141897.  
I love how this turned out.  I made several of these to leave as pillow gifts for my girlfriends at our April beach crop event.  The pocket holds a lemon tea bag.

You're Inspiring Mother's Day card

I made two of these cards for my mom and mother-in-law for Mother's Day this year.   The card base is from the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes which were part of the 2018 SAB promotion which has since ended.  This card features the hinge step stamping technique technique utilizing the Stamperatus  which can be seen here.  This awesome new tool will be available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog and is an amazing new stamp positioning tool.   The sentiment is from Blossoming Basket which is no longer available; however, you could use any sentiment you already have on hand.  The daffodils are from a stamp set called You're Inspiring 145808 and are colored using our new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  I used light and dark Daffodil Delight 144603 and light and dark Old Olive 144597 as well as a touch of light Pumpkin Pie 144599.   The sentiment is stamped in Pool Party ink 126982 on Whisper White cardstock 100730.
Isn't that ribbon lovely?  It's the 1/4" Whisper White organza ribbon 145590 colored with a light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend marker.  You can color any whisper white ribbon with Stampin' Blends markers quickly and easily.  I love having the versatility of that!

Blossoming Basket Bundle birthday card

Today is my mom's birthday.  Happy Birthday mom!  This card it for you.  It uses the Blossoming Basket bundle which was available for free during the 2018 Sale-A-Bration(SAB) promotion which has now ended.  Although the stamp set is no longer available, the Basket Weave Dynamic embossing folder will be available for sale when the 2018-2019 annual catalog begins in June.  The card base was another offering during SAB.  The roses are colored with our Stampin' Blends markets in light and dark Pink Piroutte 144604, along with light Rich Razzleberry 144584 and light and dark Daffodil Delight 144603.  Greenery is colored with light and dark Old Olive 144597 and light Daffodil Delight.  The butterflies are colored with Daffodil Delight and light Calypso Coral 144042.  I used light and dark Crumb Cake 144601 on the basket. 
did you notice the stitched rectangle?  I used the Stitched Shapes framelits 145372 to make the rectangle using a stitched square.  You can stretch the square to make a rectangle by placing the edge of your top acrylic plate before the end of the square so it won't cut the one edge.  Then rotate your paper and cut again doing the same thing.  This will avoid cutting one edge and allows you to cut a rectangle instead of a square.  I did the same thing with the scallop rectangle.  It comes from the Layer Squares framelits 141708 and is cut in Pink Piroutte cardstock 111351.  I fussy cut out the basket.  I then stamped and colored the roses a second time and fussy cut those out so I could pop them up with Stampin' Dimensionals 104430 for some dimension in my basket.  I know my mom will love this card.
