Sending Smiles

Welcome to the Stampin Friends February Blog Hop! We will be hopping on the third Thursday every month, with a different theme to inspire you each time. The theme for February is “Black, White and Whatever You Like” (1 color). If you arrived from Kirsteen’s Blog, thank you for continuing with the hop! Do not forget to click the Next button below to check out Steph’s lovely creations. If you get lost along the way, I have provided the full list of participants at the bottom of this post. PLUS, keep reading for a chance to win a bunch of new crafting gifts! 

Be sure to visit this month’s Guest Hoppers:

I wanted to start by showing you a fun birthday card that was CASEd from Kimberly Van Diepen (one of Stampin’ Up!’s Artisan Design Team members). Kimberly is such an inspiration to me with all her creations. This was a perfect card to use up scraps of DSP. I changed the colors to coordinate with this month's theme. 

Next is a great coordinating note card gift set. The Mini Treat bag fits 2 note cards with envelopes perfectly. Just saying this would be a cute hostess gift or anytime gift because you can get 10 from a package of DSP and the note cards Stampin' Up! sells. 

Here are both note cards with the mini treat bag holder. The Botanical Builder framelits are my newest favorites from the 2016 Occasions Catalog. 

I made each card similar but different. Using the same supplies. Sometimes all it takes is to change the orientation of the card opening and then you have a different card.
