These are my alternate projects:

I made a giftbag using one of the envelopes.



All you need to do is score on the 2 sides and bottom at 1/2".  Use your bone folder and make sure that the creases are crisp. Then open the envelope to look like a box.  Fold the original creases in for a pleated look on the side and glue to 2 flaps to the bottom. Cut the edges off the envelope flap on the score line.

    

The floral centrepiece resembles the stamp set flower. I used the new Second Release* Sale-A-Bration Specialty DSP called Flowering Foils and coloured it with coordinating Stampin Blends colours. *Available March 3, 2020.

I also made a card.




I used the kit card base but added Pool Party cardstock, Bird Ballad DSP and Petal Pink ribbon. I used the new Second Release* Sale-A-Bration Specialty DSP called Flowering Foils and coloured it with coordinating Stampin Blends colours. *Available March 3, 2020. The other items are from the kit.

Happy BIrthday with Poppies

I have been enjoying using the Poppy bundles in the Mini Catalogue and it seems that the variety is endless!
Today I made a birthday card in a gatefold style.  Thus the front of the card opens both ways from the middle.



I used the Peaceful Poppies DSP as the front of my card and used Basic Black Cardstock for the mat.  The Painted labels dies made a great addition using cardstock that coordinates to the DSP.  I attached my greeting to the centre of the die cut shape and then adhered it onto the left front only.  This makes the card open easily and also serves as a way to keep the card closed.

Birthday Card using Timeless Tropical bundle

Somewhere I saw this masculine card using the Timeless Tropical bundle.  I cannot find it again so this is my take on the card, credit to someone!

I made this for my husband's birthday in January and we had just returned from a lovely visit to Australia. The weather was great there but not so nice here in Edmonton so I thought this might bring back warmer memories!


I did alot of sponging around the edges of the cardstock and DSP.  The palm trees were stamped using 2 colours of ink to give depth to the palm fronds.  I love the Stitched Rectangle dies to give all the rectangles some texture.  This DSP witht the old wood sided wagon brings back alot of memories!
