Framelits Candy Holder


Hi Stampers!  Isn't this adorable?  Shelli Gardner (CEO and Co-Founder of Stampin' Up!) demonstrated this project at Leadership last month using the Labels Collection Framelits Dies.  I LOVE the shape of the holder. 



I wanted to do a little different with this Poppy Parade Holder, so I punched the top portion with the Stampin' Up! Large Oval Punch.  Doesn't it look like a doctor's bag?  You know you could put a candy bar for a get well treat.......it will be cute!

Elementary Elegance Card

Very Vanilla Seam Binding with Victoria Crochet Trim


Hi there!  I LOVE this card!!!  I was struggling to come up with a card for this month's Card Club workshops and finally GOT IT!.  I don't know about you but keeping it simple is a challenge for me.  This card is very simple and clean but yet it's so elegant.  It's hard to see it but the flourish frame image is stamped and heat-embossed with Gold Emboss Powder.  It's gorgeous!!!!  The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is stamped and punched out with the Curly Label Punch and then adhered with Dimensionals.  I love this tone to tone technique. 

I made three samples for the workshops.  Each of them is slightly different.  I can't decide which one is my favorite.
