Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I have green inky fingers after painting this Silver Glimmer Paper to create this leprechaun hat. With all the glittery shimmer of this hat, I kept the rest of the card very clean and simple.
I made this hat with the large circle and oval punches. The hat ban is a sliver of Basic Gray covered with dazzling diamonds glitter.
Here’s a St. Patrick’s Day treat bag made with an envelope, the large heart punch and a Top Note trimmed piece of Gumball Green Poetry Prints designer series paper.
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!
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.
On the interior I stamped off a Baja Breeze blossom and added the ‘oh happy day’ sentiment with Summer Starfruit.
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!
The Island Indigo color is perfect for this sporty pair of jeans from the Sale-a-bration set Patterned Occasions! What a great way to say congratulations – perfect for graduates this spring. I paired the Island Indigo stamped jeans with the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street designer series paper and added a Tangerine Tango orange flower with a Silver Glimmer Paper punched center. The matching Tangerine Tango ribbon comes from the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack.
I love the way the Sale-a-bration products coordinate this year! Coordinating products make crafting super-dooper easy. I used the Sale-a-bration Patterned Occasions stamp set with the Sycamore Street designer series paper and the Sycamore Street buttons & ribbon for this congratulations card. And the punches make this card super quick to assemble and mass produce.
Isn’t this elephant from the Sale-A-Bration Patterned Occasions stamp set just stinking cute?!! And when you stamp him in the deep purple of Rich Razzleberry all his little funky pattern is fabulously vivid. A little touch of Tangerine Tango orange pops off the purple.
I love to use the colors in a pack of designer series paper to inspire my creating, but you can also experiment with colors outside the paper pack’s color palette. Here I combined the striped Tangerine Tango paper with Melon Mambo cardstock for a fresh new color combo.
The scallop circle here is the mid-size doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets Diefrom page 191 in the catalog. When the catalog was printed the numbers got reversed and the largest die was listed as 1-3/8″ in diameter which is much smaller than what I wanted. When I found out the correct dimensions were 3-1/8″ for the largest doily I ordered the die immediately! As you can see here the mid-size doily layers perfectly with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.
