Happy Birthday

I just received my Stampin' Up! order last week and couldn't wait to use the new items.  I really LOVE the new framelit style dies introduced in the Occasions Mini . . . they bring a whole new level of crafting fun!

I'm not a big embossing fan but just had to try the new Scented Embossing Powder also in the Ocassions Mini.  It reminds me of the old "scratch & sniff" labels I used to collect as a child.

Here's the supplies that were used:

Stamps:  Imaginisce Berrylicious Collection, Stampin' Up! A Word for You
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Ink:  Black Staz-On, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Accessories: Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies, Cherry Scented Stampin' Emboss Powder

Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You

Here's a quick post.  I'm preparing for a Stampin' Up convention at the end of February and decided to do this simple card.  I cased it from a post I saw on Pinterest, but I don't remember who to give credit to :(.

The hardest part of the whole card was making the ribbon bow.  It uses a technique where you cross the ribbon into thirds and gather together in the middle and secure with a brad.  I think my brads were just too small and that was creating the frustration. Hope you give this a try! 

Stamps:  Sincere Salutations
Paper: Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, DSP Everyday Enchantment
Ink:  Crumb Cake
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslit die, Scallop Square
