Thank You & Thank You!

It is never to late to say Thank You!

Sending a thank you card seems to be becoming an lost art.  We give them for wedding, baby showers but what about the other things?  What is a friend takes you to lunch, calls just see how your doing or just because.

Send a thank you just to show them that you appreciated their concern, time, their friendship.

These were quick and simple cards,  I only used 3 sheets of card stock,  the print was double sided so I flipped to make the cards look different.  

No mater what anyone says, add a little embellishment never hurts.

So I hope you will take a minute to tell those who take time for you that you appreciate them and their friendship.

Scrappingly yours,

Ooh La La !

One, Two, Embelishments & a Corsette

This corset card was so easy and it was a lot of fun.  This may be my new go to card for the girls.

I used the "Tie the Knot" cartridge Cricut cartridge to cut a two layer corset.

1 Solid sheet of card stock - Card
2 Sheets of patterned paper - Polka Dot & Stripe
Embellishments, a ribbon and button
Embossing folder - optional

I cut the two layer corset out. Top layer out of solid paper, under layer out of stripe paper
Run the solid cut through a Sizzix with an embossing folder.  I selected something lacey, curly, flowering what ever you like.

Cut your card base out of the solid, layer the other solid on top of the base.
Add foam tape to the corset and attach. 
Embellish with the ribbon and button.

Create a greeting and attach.  I also use foam tape here to add height.

So this was my first quick take on a corsette cards to you have any ideas?

Create a Corset card and send it to me.  I will post on the Gigi Zone.

Scrapingly yours,

Surgar and Spice and Everything Nice

Little Girl Baby Shower Cards

So those of you who know me, know that I am a stamper at heart.  But there are times when I need a card and have printed paper.  That is when you go for the embellishments.  As you can see the little dresses were printed on the cardstock.  So,  I loved the paper and decided to go with embellishing.  The card on the left I added studs to the dresses, the card on the right I added jewels.

I also added ribbons, buttons, slides and Of course a stamped sentiment.  These cards were not hard to make, but I think they make an impact.  Try your hand at embellishing printed paper and let me know what you come up with.

Now I want to let you know what is ahead over the summer.
