I love the crisp, playful designs and versitility of this set. I used the wonderful patterns and colors – Tangerine Tango & Pacific Point – of the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper. To get the zig zag pattern I used a 1″ strip of pattern paper run through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die.
A thin strip of Tangerine Tango card stock, a great substitute for ribbon, was used for additional visual interest.

Happy Independence Day! Here’s a unique way to use the large blossom from Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set – as color bursts. Midnight Muse and Real Red are the perfect color combination to celebrate the 4th.
This ‘happy’ banner is from Itty Bitty Banners and actually says happy birthday but by layering the tag and changed it up. I wanted a red ‘burst’ layered beneath 4th and didn’t have anything that was the right size to place under the 1″ circle so I pieced a couple of large punched flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch.
I stamped the blossom with Bashful Blue before stamping the sail boat in Midnight Muse. Then I stamped the sails in red, trimmed them out with my Paper Snips and popped them up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final detail was adding Dazzling Details glitter glue.
Enjoy your Independence Day Celebrations! I’m so thankful for the freedoms we enjoy in this great country and grateful to all the men and women that have made & make these freedoms possible!

I created this card for a color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge was to use White, Olive and Navy. I used the new Midnight Muse for the navy. This great blue has become a go to color for me. And a rhinestone in the middle of the butterfly is always the perfect touch.
To create this card I made a mask using the Labels Collection Framelit, then layered this on top of the Whisper White card stock and sponged the interior of the image. Then I stamped the flowers first with Marina Mist for the fill in color and then with Midnight Muse for the flower outline. After everything was stamped I removed the mask and ran the piece through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder.
Don’t forget to get the Reason to Smile stamp set today and enjoy these great floral images.
I made this lake thank you card for my friend that invited us to their lake house this past weekend. Thank you, Lisa! We spent Saturday on the boat and really had a great time watching the kids ski, play in the water, buzz around on the jet ski and jump from the diving rock. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a camera with me so the card is all you get to see!
I made this brayered card similar to the Father’s Day card and just added the lake and mounted it a little differently.
I think creating these little works of art is so much fun and so immensely satisfying. Don’t you? It’s the best kind of instant gratification.
