 Plan It Out - 5x7

 Scoops - 5x7

 Sweat Season - 5x7

 Tiny Treasure - 5x7

We also offer SVG stamp outlines for .99 they work perfectly with your cutting machine. You must have a program that opens these files. This is a great alternative to coordinating dies and much less expensive. 

Here's what I've created for you... 

 Plan It Out 

If you use planners for crafting this is the perfect set because it has so many
craft related words and it's a fun set to have for cards. I created this card using one of the small stamps from Plan It Out Stamp Set, Across the Borders Stamps Set (polka dots), and the Wishful Thoughts Stamp Set.

Scoops Stamp Set

I love this set with all the different elements. As you hop along with us today and tomorrow  you
will see how many different ways this can be used. To create my card I stamped my images, colored with Copics in Yellows and Greys, fussy cut, and layered onto watercolor paper inked with Broken China Distress Ink and die-cut with Fancy Frame Die, die-cut grass using Outdoor Landscape Dies, black cardstock, and yellow designer paper, on a 4.25" x 5.5" white cardstock. Finished off with Bumblebee and Blue Jean Sprinkles.

Sweet Season

So here I just used a few of the smaller elements from the Sweet Season Stamp Set to create this shaker card. Using Crazy Stitched Frame Dies to create the shaker, stamped candy canes onto kraft cardstock die-cut with Mix It Up Dies, I stamped candy canes out of left over striped paper to add with the Merry Mix Sequins. The Merry Mix is discontinued but can be replaced with Jingle Jangle and/or Peppermint Twist.

Tiny Treasure Stamp Set and Tiny Treasure Die Set

I was so happy to see the Tiny Treasure Sets. I don't have a lot of baby related items but I have a lot
of ideas. Now I can get those ideas out of my head and make room for more fun ideas. Yep, that's how it works.
So, this is super easy to create and a great go to for last minute baby cards.
Die- cut patterned papers using the onesie and elephant from Tiny Treasure Die-Cuts, die-cut background patterned paper with largest Crazy Stitched Frame Die, die-cut banner from Flag Banner Dies, stamp sentiment from Tiny Treasure Stamp Set and layer everything onto 4.25" x 5.5" white cardstock.

Patterned papers are from Snips & Snails Doodlebug Design Inc. and can be purchased from the
Craftin Desert Divas Store.

 To create this card stamped the mobile from the Tiny Treasure Stamp Set and heat embossed with gold embossing powder, die-cut the stars, hearts, and cloud from the Tiny Treasure Die-Cuts, die-cut layer with Fancy Frame Dies, die-cut the banner from Flag Banner Dies, and stamped, heat embossed with gold embossing powder from Tiny Treasure Stamp Set.

This is a last minute add-on but I am making a video tutorial for it.
This card is worth the extra effort. It requires a lot of die-cutting but comes together quickly once you have all the pieces together. Stay tuned for video tutorial.

I hope you enjoyed the projects as much as I did creating them.
