Timeless Type Simple Thanks

I love the Timeless Type sizzlits since the letters are the perfect size for making quick and easy cards!  This thank you card used the In Color Paper Stack, some Bravo Burgundy and a strip of Peach Parfait card stock.  I embellished a bit using the trio punch set and a tiny pearl.  Hope you like it!  I'll be back next week - hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!!!

Clear Embossing with Elements of Style

Just a few quick posts for the next few days and, I'm sorry to say, no Four Ways Friday this week.  Lots on my plate and just wanted to make sure I got a bit of inspiration out there for you!  I clear embossed this Elegant Eggplant top note die cut with the Elements of Style stamp set.  A greeting, some small flowers from the trio punches and some pearls and rhinestones finish the look!  Check back tomorrow for a slight variation on this card!

Magnetic Bookmark Card!

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Sometimes It Helps To Get The Yucky Stuff Out Of The Way!
I knew I had some work I needed to get done today and I was tempted to just avoid it and head straight into the craft room.  However, I resisted the urge and decided to buckle down and get the "yucky stuff" out of the way so that then I could enjoy the craft room with a clear head!  It worked!  Unfortunately, I can't show you what I just completed since I decided to try my hand at doing another submission...I'll let you know what happens!
What I can share with you is this fun magnetic bookmark card!  I sent this to one of my wonderful customers - she is a gem!  Making the bookmark is simple.  I took a piece of Regal Rose card stock and folded it over.  Then, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Two Tags Die...except that I placed the fold of the Regal Rose card stock just inside the outside line of the Tag die so that it did not cut the paper into 2 pieces - instead, the fold remained.  I used adhesive magnetic tape on the inside of the bookmark so that it can easily hold its place in a book.  I decorated both sides with various stamps and those great little rhinestone jewels.  To place it on the front of the card, I just stapled a small strip of Daffodil Delight card stock and hung the bookmark over the middle section.  I hope you like it!  I might just have to make a quick video to show you how it's done - although that might not be for another week or so...I've got some other yucky stuff to get out of the way! :)  Oooh - and Pam, if you're reading this....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! :)
