When you are making cards does this ever happen to you? Do you not want to stamp the sentiment on the card if you don't know EXACTLY who the card is for? I do. I don't want to stamp something , then not have it appropriate and have to tear the card apart, then put it back together. So, sometimes I'll stamp/design for the colors/patterns/feeling. Then when I need the card, I quickly look for a suitable sentiment. Something great about the clear stamps, like MFT Sassy Sayings, or others from PaperTrey, I can stamp them however I need them. This is one of the ladies from Crafty Secrets Coffee and Tea set. Love that set, it's awesome. Thanks for looking.

I would never, never had bought the fancy corner embossing if it hadn't been for seeing NoTimeToStamps beautiful cards. Now I'm in love with them. I have so many of the A2 folders, but the corners and smaller ones, I bought fairly recently. Now one of the girls at work has asked me to borrow this actual folder, because she saw the card I made like this and gave it to someone else I work with and she had it on her desk. Pretty in Pink cardstock and GP white cardstock. Thanks for looking.

These used the script folder for the Cuttlebug. I ran a 8in by 5 1/4 inch through the CB with the folder in the middle. Then I cut those at 4 inches and used the Scor-Pal with 2 lines. I had this ribbon and the generic blue/violet cardstock. The reason I made these, and the next few is because I re-organized my ribbon, well some of it onto the round tab punch and this color just was so fat on the spool. I said to myself "self, you need to use some of this ribbon immediately". Thanks for looking. The ink is from Ancient Page and is on a wheel that I got at Joanns, I think the color is pink pizzaz, the stamp is from an retired SU, year round cheer, either I or II. Thanks for looking

There were colored baubles there too, which if I do plan to get some when I go back, I figure I'll bring my cardstock chart with me and grab the ones I think will work best. I just didn't trust my memory that day. Thanks for looking. Have a great day.

I also stamped the envelopes with her initial too. (Sorry didn't photo those) She really liked them ,which was great. I used a SU set classic labels I think it's called, the letter is Brenda Walton, and my Nestibilities for the scalloped squares, some of them I actually layered one over another. The patterned paper and the colored cardstock are Martha Stewart, the white is Papertrey, the ink is classic black from SU. Black cardstock is unknown. Thanks for looking and see ya soon.
This was stamped in lovely lilac and almost amethyst from SU for the flowers and always artichoke for the green. I had embossed the PT white cardstock with my Score-Pal, but didn't mask it properly when I stamped so therefore the ribbon, something from Walmart.
I also made one with summer sun. I like it better.
I have something to share with you regarding the baubles used in these cards, check back tomorrow and I'll show you my stash.
