Up and Away!

I’m back with some goodies to share with you! A few weeks ago, I started to make some party favors for a friend using this great idea I came across online.  The party theme is hot air balloons – so what’s a better party favor than these cuties…

To start, I ordered a bunch of eos chapsticks in a variety pack from Jet.com.  I stamped the hot air balloons and colored them using distress inks and copics! After, I used a circle die cut to make the holes inside the hot air balloon:

TA DA!! I will add some twine to the top of the cards so it will be easy to take and carry! I absolutely love these party favors and think it will be a hit with the guests =)

Oh, and can I tell you all of these eos chapsticks smell delicious! So much so my scottie almost took a bite of out them!

Distress, Stencils & Scotties

I’m back to share a set of handmade cards I made as a thank you gift:

I used a variety of distress inks and rubbed them gently over a Heidi Swapp stencil.

I sprayed the cardstock with some shimmer spray, used glitter cardstock for the sentiments, and then some final touches of sequins.

My little scottie decided the help keep watch over the cards as they were drying.

Hope you are having a wonderful Easter weekend!

 

Just Flip It!

I can’t tell you how much I am in love with these sizzix flip it dies!

I love them so much I had to buy the circle die cut version so that I could make even more cards! After taking this photo I added a few more details which I will update later but I had to share this little piece of joy!

Here’s the updated version – a friend requested a 50th birthday card and voila:

50thbirthday

I just added an extra polka heart and the numbers 50 using grunge board and some distress ink.  And for those of you not familiar with the flip it dies – here is the inside of the card where you can write a message:

j’adore!
