Die sets with various sizes of the same shape are great basics to have on hand.  You have all kinds of options when you need that perfect sized circle or square or when you want to do precise layering on projects.  I especially like when these types of sets have little fun details like stitching, or fun edges.  For today’s project, I will be using the Framelits Dotted Tag set from Stephanie Barnard/Sizzix in a few different ways.

For those of us who make handmade cards, we know we can never have too many in the birthday category.  I think these are the most fun to make because there is always some element of fun and whimsy involved.  Today’s project is pretty clean and simple, but I’ll show you again how movement and color can make all the difference.  I used a set from Sizzix called Birthday Wishes along with the balloons from Avery Elle’s Balloons stamp set.

A Cup of Thanks

While shopping during the holidays, I’ve come across a lot of plaid patterns in kitchen dishes and textiles.  I held myself back from starting a collection of plaid coffee cups—they’re so cozy and festive!  My card today is inspired by those plaid cups though, and I’m using a really fun set of chipboard shapes from Paper Accents called Cup & Cocoa to create a card with lots of texture.  How cute are those little marshmallows?

I love glitter not only for its sparkle, but also for all the fun color options that are available.  For my project today, I’m using some neon colored glitters along with a pretty stencil from Echo Park called Classy Fan.  I’ll be adhering the glitter using translucent embossing paste.  It’s perfect, because it’s clear and acts as a really strong glue for all that gorgeous glitter.
