Cute Card for Birthdays!

I don't have a lot of stamps for kids,but I love using this retired stamp set.  It is called Sunny Fun.  It's perfect for my young Grands!

The greeting is from Curly Cute, also retired.  I used the Decorative Dots TIEF to give interest to the background and Subtles Candy Dots for accents.

The Finishing Touches Edgelits were used to create the zigzag edges.  A Wink of Stella glitter pen was added to the ice cream for extra sparkle!

Floral Wings For You

This all occasion card was stamped with the  Floral Wings stamp set in the annual catalog.
I love the red, black, and white color combination.

The stamps are photopolymer so you can see exactly where you are stamping to make lining up the flowers with the stems an easy project.

There are a total of 10 stamps in this set so it is a good value for just $10. Turn to page 180 in the annual catalog to see the rest of the stamp set which can be yours for hosting a party or placing a qualifying order.

Happy Stamping!

Mini Treat Bag

My guest designer today is Mary Wesche, a friend and downline in Ohio.
She created this adorable treat bag from the recently retired Painted Blooms DSP, as well as the Butterfly Framelits and the Treat Bag Thinlits.
The butterfly sits on a belly band of Burlap ribbon that is topped with a strip of Lost Lagoon card stock.
And here is a peek at what's inside ...

Thanks for visiting.
