I am attempting to use up some of my designer paper so that I don't feel guilty about opening a new package. I just love the Candy Lane Designer Paper, although most of it looks very "Valentine-y". Some of the prints are mono-chromatic and make for a very elegant card. I also used 3 of the different Sale-A-Bration stamps. I skipped the sentiment so she can use them for whatever occasion she needs them for!
This is the stationary box that I made them to go inside of. To make the box: You will need 2 pieces of cardstock that measure 11x7.5. Score them at 2.5" on each side, and cut the 2.5" score line to form the bottom of the box. Make sure you use Sticky Strip to put the box together so it stays!!
Here is a side view of the box. You can see that I used the Jumbo Eyelets to make the handle with the Pink Pirouette ribbon, knotted on the inside of the box.
Stamp Set: Polka Dot Punches, Time Well Spent (retired)
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouettte, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Felt Alpine Ribbon (retired), Candy Lane Designer Paper, Metallic Eyelet, Dimensionals, Scallop Circle Punch, 5 Flower Punch, Silver Brad, Flower Fusion, Jumbo Pewter Eyelet, Pink Pirouette Ribbon
Hope you enjoyed my little stationary box! It was so fun and easy to make, and I think she will just love her gift!

The first card is for St. Patrick's Day. I don't really do green beer, I'm not Irish, and don't have a St. Patrick's day stamp set. So - I improvised - and you can do with some strategically placed hearts! I am also using the bleaching technique, which turned out different than I thought - but interesting! They are they punched out with the Large Heart Punch. The lucky sentiment is from Define Your Life.
Stamp Set: Congrats (SAB)
So - that's it. See ya tonight!

Now, I don't have a "sympathy" set per se, but flowers are always appropriate for a sympathy card and I have many of those! This is a Sale-A-Bration set, Botanical Bloom that I used with the sentiment from Trendy Trees. It is also a sketch challenge SC218 from Splitcoast.
The sentiment was a little long to use with the Designer Punch, so I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to align the sentiment in 2 lines. I also used it to line up the flowers with the outlines.
I hope the Kale family is able to find some comfort in this very difficult time.
Stamp Set: Botanical Blooms, Trendy Trees
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray
Ink: Basic Black, Going Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Fifth Avenue Floral Designer Paper, Brads, Designer Label Punch, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by! Whatcha think of the card?
