Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Set has been a FAV of mine for a longggg time! It's retiring May 31, 2012 and I can highly recommend it for it's great versatility!
Here I paired it with the softness of Beau Chateau Designer Series Papers and Twitterpated buttons!
Punch a circle into the "lids" you just glued together to create a handle. Then embellish! This goes together very quickly! I used the soft BEAU CHATEAU Designer Series Paper and added butterflies made from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. Give this a try for the perfect table favors!
"CASE" means copy-and-share-everything... and I did. I saw this idea by Shoni Matney and LOVED the softness. This is the Bright Blossoms Stamp Set - not so bright. The colors are Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla and a pop of Daffodil Delight.
The delicate background is the Netting Stamp.
This sweet little number was a Make & Take from Stampin' Up!'s Leadership 2012. The assorted flowers are die cuts from the Occasions Mini Catalog called Blossom Builders. SOOO easy! The layer behind the flowers is simply traced from On Board Merry Medley and then lightly sponged.
In yesterday's post I explained how simple it is to create a FABRIC STICKER. This card features the Summer Smooches Designer Fabric available in the April Special as a Sneak Peek of the 2012-2013 Big Catalog which begins June 1st!
The Fabric Stickers are cut with the Top Note and Blossom Party Dies for the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. Try it!!
I created FABRIC STICKERS with the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets! It's quite easy. Simply peel apart the Adhesive Sheet and spread on the Twitterpated Designer Fabric on the sticky side. Now it can go into the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine!
Next, peel the backing off and place your fabric shape onto your project! TOO FUN!! These flowers are made with the Blossom Party Die. Give this a try and you'll be amazed at how easy it is!
I love the way Stampin' Up!'s products coordinate! This is a perfect example. The Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper has the ice cream cone image that pairs perfectly with the Mouthwatering Stamp Set! Creating simplified.
This "over-the-top design" is a charming window card with valance and flower box, and it was on display at Leadership! This one definitely took my eye! The pretty flowers are from the sweet Bordering On Romance stamp set of 5 images. The pink curtain valance is Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon - yum! Isn't this cottage window a charmer?!
This is a picture of a Leadership display sample that shows a unique use for Barker's Twine! The Twine is cleverly glued into a vine design and then embellished with tiny flowers and leaves. Give this a try!
This feminine card really has some high "frill factor!" The three elegant tea cups are from Tea Shoppe Stamp Set of ten images. They are paired perfectly with Hello Doily big background stamp which is heat embossed in White Embossing Powder. Precious!
Did you wonder just WHAT to do with the Dresden Designs Die in the Occasions Mini Catalog? Here are two sweet ideas from Leadership displays! I think the butterfly design is particularly unique! These pillows are created with Twitterpated Designer Fabrics and Twitterpated Buttons. LOVELY, CHARMING!
Judy from Rockford, IL sent me this gorgeous bird created from the Elegant Bird Die and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. The bird is Twitterpated Designer Fabric attached with the Big Shot Adhesive Sheets.
This lovely 6"X7" creation arrived in a Twitterpated Designer Series Paper envelope custom-made with the Simply Scored and Diagonal Plate! SOO special!
The card inside is just as inviting! This is a wonderful example of all the Occasions Mini Catalog new Dies for the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine! Just a reminder - the Occasions Mini Catalog ENDS April 30th.

This is a 3X6" format featuring Attic Boutique Designer Series Papers. Notice the Pearl layers perfectly onto the sweet Flower Brad! This card fits into Stampin' Up!'s Small Open-End Envelope. Give this format a try!
Spring has arrived! Try embossing Vellum Cardstock, like I did here using the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. It's a lovely frosted effect! I added the Bird Builder Punch, sponging the edges of the bird.
This is my Gandma's Sewing Lamp and I sooo happy I have it! I needed a new lampshade so I embellished a plane white shade with Yo Yos. Yesterday I taught you how to make Yo Yos quick and easy with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.
For balance, I needed a top treatment. I attached fabric to the peel-and-stick Big Shot Adhesive Sheets and then cut a scallop from Tasteful Trim Die. That created a "Fabric Sticker" I could simple peel and stick to the top edge. Last, another row of Pleated Ribbon.
I think Grandma would LOVE it and be happy I have her little sewing lamp in my Stamp Room to enjoy!!
I'm going to love sending this CHEERY birthday greeting! The Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper is TASTY!!
The NEW Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scored makes a PERFECT envelope every time! Get your's HERE!
Notice the peeking edge of the Ruffled Pool Party Ribbon! A SWEET detail!
On the INSIDE of a Designer Cuts card, permanently attach a piece of cardstock vellum over the design. Grab your markers - I chose alots of blues and one green from my Stampin' Up! Many Marvelous Markers. On the inside (which is the BACK of the card front) quickly scribble colors onto the vellum over the cut openings.
Now YOU give it a try! Stock up on the Designer Cuts cards and envelopes from the Occasions Mini Catalog which expires April 30th.
STOP IN MONDAY

I spray painted aluminum flashing, cut with the Big Shot and then embossed the wings with an embossing folder. This bird will find a place in my potted plants - it's all aluminum and will not rust! Try it! Come back in the near future for MORE aluminum creations - I've been "PLAYING!"

Use a black permanent marker to color the rhinestones while on the backing sheet, blot, and then attach. Chic.
Here's a simple Valentine based on a sample Peggy sent me. I used my faithful Big Shot to cut out two shapes using the NEW Hearts Collection Framelits of SIX sizes. Then I simply added Designer Series Paper scraps on the backside of the big heart. EASY!
