I’m in love with Bright and Beautiful

I really am in love with this stamp set – it is so versatile, and when combined with the Stars Framelits a crafter’s dream has been born! I mean, who doesn’t want to feel Bright and Beautiful? 😉

I wanted to use a different Textured Impressions embossing folder, one that many of you probably already have, Perfect Polka Dots. And instead of the Blackberry Bliss ribbon, I just used scraps of the Blackberry Bliss paper to make a flag (for the card on the far right) and for the Gate Fold card (you can’t see my little tag in this picture).  I have to admit, though, that I do have a couple of favorites in this bunch:

The card on the left is flat enough to mail in a regular envelope with standard postage, but the one on the right, because it’s 3-D, would probably be better off put in an envelope and just handed to that special someone, or add it to a lovely gift as a tag – you have plenty of room on the inside to put a meaningful greeting. I can’t wait to make some more of these to send and give to my friends and family!
