Garden Picks Dies with Coffee Tag

Even the smallest of gifts need a fabulous presentation, right?  
One of the things I love most about my job is being able to pull something together on the fly - just when I need it!  I used lots of bits and pieces from my desk, things I had cut extras of, and created a cute tag.


I used the tag from Tag'd Die.  I stamped the top of it with the Jumbo Plaid background stamp in Tin Pail ink.  
I had some flowers cut from the gorgeous Garden Picks Dies from Altenew so I used those with a coffee frappuccino from the Coffee First dies. 
I did a little ink blending and spritz it with water to create the color.  There is a clear window on the top to make the lid but it's hard to see in the photo.

Scallop Notecard Dies and a Tres Chic Handbag

 I have a project with the new Scallop Notecard Dies from The Stamp Market today.  These are really fun - you can see a photo of the die below - you cut it and it has the score line for folding with the beautiful scallop edge.
They measure 4" x 2-1/2" after folding, so you easily get 4 cut from a piece of cardstock.


I paired them with the Skinny Upper Alpha Dies and the the gorgeous Garden Picks Dies from Altenew.  The scripty words across the alphabet are in the Scallop Notecard Dies.


They fit perfectly inside the paper purse - surprise, surprise!  This purse pattern can be found in the Tres Chic Handbags tutorial.  
(This is a good old fashioned cut and trace pattern & instruction tutorial - NOT a svg cutting file for electronic cutters.)

Cool Treats Bundle

I don't often do back to back posts with the same product, but I have more to share with the brand new Concord & 9th Cool Treats Bundle.  I'm having so much fun creating with this one!

These are by far my favorite colors, the orange ones I posted earlier were cute and I love creating with those colors, but these speak to me...you know, like most ice cream speaks to me.   Ok, maybe it's just me. *Ü*


Stamp Set:  Cool Treats Bundle
Cardstocks:  Reverse Confetti Flamingo & Rose, FSJ Peaches and Cream & Oatmeal Cookie
Accessories:  Cottage Rose Satin Ribbon, Distress Inks, Glitter, Clear Micro Beads, Glossy Accents


I ink blended a page of ombre colors with Distress Oxide Ink Pads and then cut them out with the dies.  It gives the Popsicles, snow cones and ice cream bars a cool look.


The snow cones were stamped with the stripe image to get the diagonal look.  I added a little bit of Glossy Accents and sprinkled with Clear Micro Beads for an icy effect.


This card uses the Turnabout stamp in the bundle to create the background.  I love using these - you have to try it!!  The Popsicle was cut three times with three different colors and then the words were embossed with Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder.  That brand is some seriously good embossing powder!!!


I made a small box to go between two Popsicle dies. The measurements for the box are:
Box bottom is cardstock cut to 3" x 4".  Score at 1/2" on all four sides.
The box lid is cardstock cut to 3-1/16" x 4-1/16".  Score at 1/2" on all four sides.
