Feeling Sentimental Note Cards With Matching Envelopes

feeling sentimental note cards

Only 8 more days for Sale-a-bration!

The Sale-a-bration Feeling Sentimental stamp set is perfect for the note cards and envelopes pack!  The rich Lucky Limeade color in the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper used on the envelope flap is just right for stamping the vintage bicycle on the front of the note card.

feeling sentimental note cards Here’s the set of three that I made. I chose monochromatic papers to cover the flaps of the matching envelopes for a on-fuss look.  I love the simplistic sophistication of a monochromatic color scheme.  And no special supplies needed, just paper, ink and scissors!

Bundle a set of 6 of these cards and envelopes together with a ribbon bow and you have a wonderful gift for a teacher or a friend’s birthday.  I used Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango and Pool Party for this set with papers from the designer series paper packs SAB Sycamore Street,  International Bazaar, and Comfort Café.

I kept these super simple, but you could definitely add ribbon, buttons or rhinestones.

Quick Gift Cards

bloomin marvelous gift card

These simple little gift cards are made so easily with the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the coordinating Blossom punch.  And the added little butterfly from the Sale-a-bration Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set…well, you can’t go wrong with a butterfly.  Especially a butterfly that is so easily punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch!

bloomin marvelous gift card butterfly

I have been waiting for an opportunity to break out this fun bitty butterfly paper from the Patio Party Designer Series Paper pack and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.    All those adorable little butterflies in trendy colors flitting all over the dark Midnight Muse page – yum!  I used the colors from the paper – Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and Baja Breeze – for the rest of the elements on the card.

bloomin marvelous gift card interior

On the interior I stamped off a Baja Breeze blossom and added the ‘oh happy day’ sentiment with Summer Starfruit.

Here’s the card recipe:

Here’a another similar gift card using the Sale-a-bration exclusive Sycamore Street Designer Paper and the Ribbon and Button Pack.  The big blossom on this card is stamped in Tangerine Tango to match the paper and topped with a scallop circle of Baja Breeze and a coordinating Island Indigo ribbon knot.  I used a glue dot to attach this bit of ribbon, which is a whole lot easier than punching holes and trying to tie a neat knot in that little scallop circle!

Digital Tuesday: Spring is Nature’s Way of Saying “Let’s Party!”

"spring is nature's way of saying let's party' printable Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”, so says Robin Williams.  And today is digital Tuesday, so here’s a quick My Digital Studio creation for you.  I used a background paper from the new Sale-a-bration Lemonade Stand digital disc, the ‘spring’ stamp from the Walk in the Park II designer kit and a little flower from the Enjoying Everything designer kit.  The rest is text.  (You can view my tips on how to make frameable home decor from any quote in My Digital Studio digital designing software here.)

Spring is definitely in the air.  Last week we had the weirdest weather here in Kentucky.  One night I came out to half a foot of snow on my car, we had a snow day and a couple of days later we were out in short sleeves.

It’s Tuesday and that means new My Digital Studio downloads are available.
