I received a swap card from Jeanna Bohanon that featured this stamp from Layering Love and I knew I had to make one like it. She used some different papers and Washi tape but the design is basically the same. Jeanna and I were both part of a group of demonstrators who were display stampers for the recent Stampin' Up! event. We all got together to create a Pinterest page that features cards that we made for the event. You can see all the cards here, as well as the fun card by Jeanna that inspired mine.
The Washi tape is also from the Pop of Pink collection. I love the little tiny hearts in Melon Mambo and Basic Black.
I added some Whisper White cardstock to the insides of the cards and dressed them up with more Washi tape at the bottom.
The Layering Love stamp set features large sentiment stamps, great for cards as well as home decor and scrapbook pages. You can see the full set on June 1st when the catalog goes live! I hope you will check it out! Let me know if you need a copy!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Back in early April I needed to make some projects using the current In-Color collection and some carry over products to use for a Stampin' Up! display. I needed to make 20 projects and I made many more so that I could choose which ones to bring. I ended up not using these gift bags for the display and then forgot to show them on my blog. I was putting some to use this week, one for a grad gift (the stars) and one for a teacher (the flowers) and so I thought I better blog them before they all get sent away!
I used stamps and dies that were meant to go together with the gift bag dies. The stamp set is called You're So Sweet and I love the Heart and star!! So fun.
The little flowers are from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and is being discontinued!! (insert sad face) I use this little flower all the time. If you think you may want this punch pack, grab it fast, it is on a 'While Supplies Last' list!!
As I mentioned, the gift bags can fit into an envelope. I dressed the envelope up a bit by tracing the flap onto some designer series paper.
I cut the traced piece out and glue it to the envelope.
i only added glue to the edges of the flap so that it would not add too much bulk and so that the edges would not get caught in the mail processing machines.
I made a card insert for the gift bags and added my notes and a gift card.
The dies come with the heart and star, the washi tape piece, the little cut out strips (one is a hear, one a star and one circles) and the bow, as well as enjoy and for you. Great for use on other cards and scrapbook pages!!

Next I stamped the butterfly wing details with Calypso Coral at full strength. This set comes with a couple options for the wing details and you can layer them both of just use one. You can also use multiple colors instead of monochromatic as I have done.
For this card I added the 'Just for you' in a set of Oval punches. These are being discontinued too!! I reach for these two all the time because they tend to work so nicely for sentiments, not too big, not too small, just right. Anyone coming to my annual retired products sale (most likely June 4th) you will not see these up for sale, I am going to hang onto them. Stampin' Up! is coming out with a new oval framelit collection, which is really great and I will get it, but I just love being able to reach for a punch to make a quick sentiment piece and these are an easy go to. Agree, then snatch them up quickly before it is too late!! Punches are selling out quickly. While you are there, get the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack and the Party Punch packs before they are gone. Those are on my must have list for sure! The little flower on this card is from the Tree Builder punch! another great punch that thankfully is not going away with the new catalog!
Thanks for stopping by!!
