I wish you had SMELL-A-VISION! On this Baby Prints card I used VANILLA Scented Stampin' Emboss Powder over the tiny hand prints. It's a delightful surprise for your nose - my stampin' office smells yummy!!

First stamp your image, then use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig positioner to stamp over that image with Veramark ink. Sprinkle with the CLEAR scented powder and heat. The results are delicious. Available in Vanilla, Melon or Cherry. But all three NOW!

You're My Type

This olde typewriter reminds me of high school typing class - decades ago! "You're My Type" stamp set of seven images has six versatile greetings to choose from.

The First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper is the PERFECT background to pair with this cute stamp set! Make your WISH LIST now for Sale-A-Bration Promo that starts Jan. 24th and gives you a FREE item for EACH $50 you purchase! It's the BEST!!

"Attic Boutique"

Let the Designer Paper do the work for a FAST creation. The lovely "Attic Boutique" Designer Series Paper I used here is in the NEW Occasion Mini Catalog. Click the OMC in the header to view all the exciting new products.

I used a strip of designer paper as a ribbon by pulling it across my bone folder to soften the fibers, then it's easy to softly pleat across Sticky Strip. This card is 3X6 and fits the Open End Envelopes.

Softness - Just Because

This lovely softness was created with "Attic Boutique" Designer Series Paper from the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog. I started out to use up "leftovers" on my desk.

The focal point on this card is the "Scalloped Heart of Hearts" Embosslit Die for the Big Shot. It's such a "must" for your die collection!

This fancy circle focal point is from the Perfect Pennants Die. Another versatile shape! These are great note cards to have on hand!

Sweet Baby Prints

Baby Prints is a SWEET new stamp set of seven images in the exciting Occasions Mini Catalog! Here I used white on white with lots of texture and a touch of Baja Breeze.

LOVE the NEW Pleated Satin Ribbon - so trendy! The ruffle is easy to create with the NEW White Waffle Paper which is very thin and flexible. Attach it with a strip of Sticky stripe, pleating as you go. Want to see more NEW items? Just click Occasions Mini Catalog in the header of this blog. Stop back for more creative tomorrow!

This creation works for so many needs. I stamped a sympathy message inside, but birthday, anniversary work, too. The flower image is from Love & Sympathy stamp set of three.

I used the NEW Labels Framelit Die coming Jan. 4th for the center layer. The lovely Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper is the perfect background. I scrunched the seam binding ribbon and attached it with glue dots.

Rue Des Fleurs stamp set of eight is available Jan. 4, 2012 in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I love the "supporting" words in this set!! The Designer Series Paper is called "Attic Boutique," so lovely!

I dotted the flowers with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Then I took a short piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding and wadded it up in my palms. I held it scrunched up for a moment and it holds the "wrinkles." That was my embellishments with a small flower and pearl! So easy and vintage.
