Sweet & Simple Petite Pairs Pair

Hey Stampers !

Well, I am OFFICIALLY finished. My Inky Fingers Club projects that is !! I need to pop them in a box and send them to OHIO today ! So all of my write-ups, my tutorials, my pictures - all finished ! I am SO excited for you to see them !! but remember, you need to JOIN the summer session in order to see these fun ideas !! So please click on the links and head on over to the sign up page !! My projects (and 13 of my fellow designers) will be too fab to miss !! 

I have 2 cards to show you today !! I cased the cute and simple idea from a card I saw on Pinterest by Jen Sannes . Her card was from 2011, but I thought since we are in the last week of the Grab Your Greetings promotion (get 3 sentiment sets for 25% off !!) I would try to showcase my FAV of the sets - Petite Pairs ! I totally think this set is a TOTAL must have ! It has sentiment for almost every occasion you can think of, and even has the matching "inside the card" verses as well !! VERY cool ! I loved Jen's simple design, so I decided to make 2 versions. Take a look at these sweet and simple cards ! 

CUTE right !?! This card uses the new color Strawberry Slush. I punched a Small Heart into a scrap of cardstock, and used my 1" Square Punch to punch around it. What a fun window ! Then I layered it onto a Whisper White Postage Stamp Punch with some Dimensionals. A 2" square of DSP from the new In Color DSP Pattern Stacks was a sweet background for my punched piece. I adhered the DSP square down with some Snail and popped my punched piece on top with more Dimensionals. I finished it off with a little bow tied from White Bakers Twine. I stamped my sentiment with some Jet Black StazOn underneath, and added a strip of Rhinestones. Could that BE any easier ?!  

And here's my second card. I loved the idea of switching the heart out for the star !! I love this sweet little punch. Its from the Merry Minis Punch Pack. Did you know that, even though they are not printed in the new catalogue, this pack of Holiday punches is still available !?! Its part of the Christmas Carryover List - check out whats still available right here! The color used here is another In Color, the fab Coastal Cabana. I thought pairing the "best wishes" with the star was fun - like "when you wish upon a star" !! LOL

Thats my fun "set" of cards today. I really like how they turned out ! I wish we had some more tiny punches we could make card like this with !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!

  3. Hi Catherine - I'm interested in your Inky Fingers Club, but have a question. If I sign up, do I have access only during that 2 weeks to the site? I'm going to Convention so will not have access from the 15th to the 22nd. Also, will the projects be downloadable so that I can go back to them after the 2 weeks?


    1. Hi Carolyn !! Yes, the site stays up for a full year and all projects are available as PDFs to download !! Isn't that awesome !?! So please join us !! And if you do, drop me an email and let me know !! Hugs !!
