I was really pleased to find this unique color combo that I had not yet tried:

Very Vanilla and Island Indigo

I always thought that Island Indigo should be paired with White... but I quite like it with these Very Vanilla Designer Cuts Cards !  What do you think?

  Island indigo designer cuts

Designer Cuts cards only available until April 30 in the Occasions mini!!!

This card was embellished with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die, Creative Elements set, and the Perfectly Penned set.

Just weave a 7" piece of Island Indigo 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in and out of the Laser cut holes.. nice touch!

Sweet Pea Designer Paper card

One of the cards we made at Rita's workshop last weekend was kind of "out of the box" for me.. I seem to have been stuck on red and pink and black lately... but I branched out and used the SWEET PEA DSP from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog as my color inspiration for this project:

The card is about 3-1/2" x 4-1/4" and fits into a folded Glassine Bag (item 117228, pg 19 Occasions mini).

You can stamp on the Glassine bags and envelopes with StazOn ink! :)

DSC00890 copy

create a belly band for your envelope with a 1"x12" strip of DSP.

or... you can run your glassine bag through the Big Shot with an embossing folder!!  I used the new polka dot embossing folder for this one (item 117335, pg 35 Occasions mini).

Here is a sampling of the SWEET PEA DESIGNER PAPER.. it's sooooooooo cute!

TIP: I wanted Jumbo Black Brads...

I wanted large and small black brads to go with my new Pendant Die Cut Note cards (pg 168)... so I just dipped my 5/16" and 5/8" jumbo brads (pg 179) in my BLACK STAZ ON pad (pg 190)... and voila.. large black brads!! No heat setting needed! :)

Pendant 1a

Above: the 5/16" black brad is set in the center of a black Jumbo Grommet (pg 179).

I used the new "Groom" specialty DSP (pg 158) behind the die cut Pennant notes.
