First up... Believe in Yourself by Gina K... FREE with $35 or more order!!

I LOVE this big butterfly and what's NOT perfect about this saying??!! Something everyone should definitely have around to read over and over!  Nothing like positive reinforcement, I say.  

My card today started out with a Pure Luxury Lipstick Red card stock.  I added some Innocent Pink to border the DP of the same name, "Petals and Wings".  This butterfly is absolutely FUN FUN to color!! I used my Memento markers to match the colors in the DP and cut it out before propping it up on my Nestabilities Labels 23.  I added more of that wonderful DP and Lemon Drop card stock to put my sentiment on which I also colored with my markers.  And just a bit of bling on the bottom.  :-)


Next up... Great Sayings by Gina K... FREE with three set!!

  And open...


For this card I decided to make a "bookmarker" layout so that once the card is opened, they can then tear off the end and make it into a bookmarker.  :-)  


My card began with Pure Luxury Raspberry card stock.  I layered on some Soft Sand and topped it with more of the new DP paper, "Pool Side".  I stamped the flowers on White and used my Memento markers to color them in.  I used the Nestabilities Fancy Tags 3 and cut the ends off the oval tag to apply to the ends of the white card stock.  A little colored hemp and some flowers finish off the bookmarker side.  


Note:  If you misplace your perforating wheel on your paper cutter... do what I did... use the Scor-Bug Embosser to go down the scored line a few times and you can create your own perforated edge.  :-)





Now check out all the amazing designs and inspiration from the rest of the DT:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! *HUG*

Really like them both.Love how you covered up part of the label. I always resist buying the larger die cuts because they take up so much room. Never occurred to me to cover part of it!
