Pretty Petites

I love the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and the Pretty Petites stamp set from our Sale-a-bration catalog.

SAB Scallop Squares

I started with an Island Indigo card base, layered with Pool Party card stock. I punched all of my squares from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper using the Postage Stamp punch. After adhering them to my Pool Party card stock, I ran the piece through the Big Shot using the new Honeycomb Embossing Folder. I added the Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon and attached the entire piece to my card base. I punched the butterfly from Island Indigo card stock using the new Bitty Butterfly punch, and then I added a rhinestone jewel. The butterfly was attached to the square with dimensionals. I pulled out my Raspberry Ripple Dahlia and attached it to the other square for a flower effect. Finally I stamped the “hello” in Island Indigo on Whisper White card stock and punched it out using the Sale-a-bration Petite Curly Label punch. It was also attached with dimensionals. What a fun way to use your Designer Series Paper.

Jolly Bingo Bits

I have to admit I usually don’t go for a set like Jolly Bingo Bits, but this set just seemed like it would be great for tags and quick accessories, with its variety of images.


I found out how quick and fun using this set actually was. You can always click on my card below to enlarge the photo to see all the details (and my stamping mistakes) more clearly!

Jolly Bingo Bits

I chose Cherry Cobbler for my card base. I then pulled out the packet of Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack from the Holiday Catalog and chose my designer paper. Next came the scraps of Night of Navy, Garden Green, Chcolate Chip and Cherry Cobbler card stock. I punched out one of each color using the Postage Stamp Punch. I stamped my Jolly Bingo Bit images in the corresponding ink on Whisper White card stock and used the 1″ Circle Punch to punch them out.

The Whisper White card stock snowflake was run through the Big Shot using one of our retired snowflake dies. I attached each image to the postage stamp and then attached them to the card using Dimensionals.

Now for the fun part! Out came my Rhinestone Basic Jewels and my Sharpie pens. I colored the rhinestones using the Sharpies — Rudolph’s nose with red, blue for the snowflake, and green for the Christmas tree.

I stamped “merry” from the Tiny Tags stamp set in Black Staz-on on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Jewelry Tag Punch. I attached the tag to the gift using a Mini Glue Dot and then placed the Rhinestone Jewel on top.

Hope you will enjoy coloring your Rhinestones to add some bling to your next project!
