Two more cards today from our team swap and they are really great!
The first card (created by Chaille) features the Mixed Bunch stamp set paired with the new Blossom Punch, both featured in the Occasions Mini Catalog. The intricate floral pattern was stamped with Very Vanilla Craft ink before cropping with the coordinating punch. The Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (for the Big Shot) gives the background added interest without distracting from the the blossom.
Pear Pizzazz Pleated Satin Ribbon adds a pretty touch above the sentiment. I LOVE this ribbon!! Not only is it gorgeous, it's already pleated and stitched ... no sewing, folding, or gluing required. Yippee! The sentiment is part of the Perfect Words stamp set - one of the exclusive Hostess choices available for just another month or so.

This fun greeting card, created by Mary, combines the cute flower from the Easy Events stamp set with another great Hostess stamp set, Happiest Birthday Wishes. The Perfect Pennants Bigz Die (for the Big Shot) provides the cool medallion as a mat for the petite flower image. The Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack flower was added to each along with a Basic Rhinestone Jewel.
In the background, strips of In Color Patterned Paper were adhered to a piece of Whisper White card stock, before cutting an inverted V-shape. SAVE that scrap! Place it inside the card for a clever little surprise.
Reminder: April 30, 2012 is the last day to order products from the Occasions Mini Catalog and the Summer Smooches Sneak Peek.
