Seriously...a card and a gift bag?

I've had this "seriously" die from Lil Inker forever.  And it all honesty, I made this card a long time ago.  It sits on  top of my shelf staring at me and I figured it was finally time to share.  One of my favorite crafty dies of ALL time is from Lawn Fawn.  These banner dies?  I have raved about them in the past and I adore them.  So here is my card....


I used the banner in the back to make the card and then layered it with the patterned paper.  I love that "seriously" die.  I say that all the time!  I added in a little twine bow and some enamel dots to finish it off.  


I'm going to use this card for a gift too.  And what better way to present this card using these adorable  dies?  I am going to hang it from the kraft gift bag and have an instantly decorated gift bag.  I used to put my card....that I worked so hard an envelope and it would fall to the bottom of the bag.  Now?  These card hangers help me share my card.  You know the ones we put our hearts into?  Yep!

(Excuse these terrible pics....its dark and cloudy today...)

Rectangle Card Hanger Die

This die is the Rectangle Card Hanger die.  It fits a regular A2 card, hanging vertically.  I also have a Decorative style and a Scalloped Edge Card Hanger Die in the same size.  I do have a mini Card Hanger die now too, that hold a 3" card. It has a stitched edge in this same rectangle shape

Happy Birthday!

Hey there!  Stopping in with a card I made a couple weeks ago.  I haven't had much crafty time lately,  but feeling a little mojo return with all of these new Simon Says goodies.  I used Birthday Circle combined with the SSS Stitched Circle dies to get this look....


First, I cut out the birthday circle, and then cut the negative out with the stitched circle.  I took those 2 pieces and foam taped them back together.  I layered them on top of the My Minds Eye On Trend patterned paper.


I cut the cupcake out with gold paper and the popped up the icing, cut out of PTI's Melon Berry, with foam tape.

Curtain Call: Celebrate!


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!


To celebrate the Curtain Call's third anniversary, the Celebrate challenge will run the entire month of July!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I used the new Balloon dies and the Good Times stamp set and coordinating dies, for this card.  The dotted background stamp is so much fun and made for the perfect gold confetti at the bottom of each balloon die.  I added in the ballon tail dies in gold card stock.  Last, I cut "celebrate" out of vellum and attached it along the side.  I wanted to let the balloons have center stage but still use a sentiment on the card front.  It was hard to get a good picture because it is in vellum, but in person, it looks great!
