Manhattan Flower and Fifth Avenue Florals

I love the new Impressions die from SU!....especially on vellum. I stamped the Whisper White cardstock under the vellum with the rose from the Fifth Avenue Florals set and included a ribbon rose as shown by SU! at recent regional events for a trifecta of roses....I plan to give this card to my mom for Mother's Day.

Old School Stationery Folio

This stationery folio uses the Cheep Talk stamp set, Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper and the technique from SCS TLC212....a ribbon frame. I wanted mine too look fluffy, and that may not have been the neatest way for it to look, but I'm okay with that.

A stationery folio was today's 3-D challenge on Stampin' Addicts. Holly made a lovely and detailed folder to inspire us. I was inspired to make pear themed cards and envelopes with less details than Holly used, but still a cutesy result I think. Check out her challenge here:

Parisian Breeze Matchbox

I love the Parisian Breeze Cardstock weight Designer Series Paper from SU! I am also enjoying the tiny cuteness of the new Matchbox Die for the Bigshot which will be available on April 1.
I used the new scalloped oval punch to punch a window in the box and then a window sheet to allow you to see the matching jelly beans inside. Since I couldn't punch the oval exactly in the middle of the top, I used the taffeta chocolate chip ribbon and a circle punch from the new Matchbox Messages set to create some needed embellishment.
