A Couple of Things....


Just a couple quick things to share today, no challenges, just things laying around on my desk after playing with my new Big Shot.   The first is a card for a hostess who had a party over the weekend. My upline always told me to "treat my hostesses like queens"!  So they get lots of stuff from me at their party, plus cards before and after! So this is my "thanks for everything" card--I leave it blank inside so they can use it themselves!  This customer loves purple, so I try to make sure something I give her is purple:


This card uses the Flower Layers #3 die, along with the scallop circle punch and the new scallop oval punch, which will be in the new Occasions mini!  I also used the Sizzlets die Birds & Blooms for the leaves.  Do you recognize the little flower stamp?  It is the tiny poinsettia from Season of Joy!  A Christmas set!!  Ah, the versatility of stamps!

The next one uses the "negative" portion of a piece of cardstock after I used the Sizzlets Little Leaves die:


You can't get much simpler than this!  I backed the Baja Breeze piece with a scrap of Bella Rose DP, rounded the corners and shaded them a bit, then added my sentiment and one of those yummy new corduroy buttons (again) from the new Occasions mini!  I thought this would be a great masculine get-well card. 

Last, I just had to share with you another one of my little Scallop Envelope treat holders.  I saw this post on Flowerbug's Inkspot and just had to use that little bunny as an embellishment.  This will be a door prize at my Stamp Camp on Saturday:


I do have a tutorial written up on how to make these treat holders, so again, if anyone wants it, email me!


  1. Ho LeAnne! These are ALL such inspiring creations! Especially love the first one you made with the Big Shot. How FUN! And such a springy card! I was a SU demo a couple years ago and believe in your philosophy of treating the hostess like a queen...if not for them, you wouldn't have a business! Happy Stamping! Smiles, Pam :)

  2. That was supposed to say HI! oops! :) I hope it made you SMILE! :)

  3. These are all such beautful creations, but I really love the elegance of the 'get well' card. Great work, LeAnne.
