Sealed with a Kiss!

Hey guys! Happy Saturday! I hope you are all enjoying your day. I am having a very productive day, not so much in the craft room, but around the house. I actually have my laundry done...and that includes my ironing! I know, it probably sounds pretty silly to some of you, but you see, I hate laundry and I especially HATE ironing! Most of the time, I procrastinate my ironing until the basket can't hold any more and I'm forced to get it done...but I only had about 5 articles of clothing that needed ironing and I decided to just git r' done! And it actually looks pretty spiffy around here. My other BIG accomplishment today, was getting all of my business receipts from 2016 in order. I did really good until August, then well, procrastination bit and they started piling up. But, I'm back on track and my 2017 New Year resolution is to stay organized in my business and around the house. That is the other thing I hate....disorganization. It makes me crazy. So, for my own sanity, this is my resolution. Lets see how well I do!

Anyhoo, I have a cute card for you today. I actually did this for the sketch challenge over on my FB page, and I am pretty pleased with how it came out. I just love this stamp set!
Stamp Set: Sealed with Love
Paper: Whisper White 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded 4 1/4"; Real Red 4" x 5 1/4"; Falling in Love DSP 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" cut off 2" for the bottom piece and trim off 1/4" from the top piece; scrap Whisper White for the stamped image and 1" piece for the banner; scrap DSP 1" wide for banner and scrap Real Red 1" wide for banner
Ink: Real Red
Misc: Sending Love Ribbon pack; Banner Triple Punch; Big Shot; Stitched Shapes Framelits; Fast Fuse; Stampin' Dimensionals.

Adhere DSP pieces to Real Red, leaving a 1/4" gap between them. Wrap with ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon pack and tie into a bow. Adhere this all down to the card base. Next, stamp the Sealed with a Kiss sentiment onto scrap Whisper White and stamp the lip image all in Real Red ink. Run this through the Big Shot with the largest circle framelit in the Stitched Shapes Framelit collection. Adhere this to the top of the card with a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally, banner one end of the 1" scrap pieces of cardstock, and trim them to stagger in length and adhere them down using Fast Fuse even with the top of the bottom DSP layer.

Yes, it was that quick and easy! Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look. Please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts. Have a great rest of you day and Happy Stamping,

Out With The Old and In With The New

Wow, can you believe it, today is the final day to place orders from the 2015-2016 annual catalog and the Occasions catalogs! Tomorrow morning the new and oh so fantastic new 2016-2017 annual catalog goes live! Trust me when I tell you, I can barely contain my excitement! This catalog goes way beyond fantastic! However, if there is anything on the retirement list that you really want, today's your last chance. Lots has sold out, but there is still a lot of great things left so feel free to check it out before it's gone forever in less than 24 hours!
Ok, now for today's card. I can finally share it with you. I had to keep it under wraps until after I gave it to my dad for his birthday and I didn't want him to stop by here and see it before he received it, so now it's in his hot hands and now I can share it with all of you. This comes from my oh so favorite new set, Swirly Bird stamp set! I can not believe how versatile this stamp set is and of course I adore the coordinating Thinlits as well....waves are compliments of the Thinlits!
The sentiment comes from the stamp set Thoughtful Banners. I totally love this set as well because you create sooo many sentiments, its almost endless the combination of words you can put together to create just the right sentiment. The colors I used are Mint Macaron, Night of Navy and for the "sun" Delightful Dijon, the boat is Tip Top Taupe and the flag is Real Red. I hope you enjoy this card, I think dad did. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. I hope you all have a great day and happy stamping.
