Oh So Happy

This card is so simple in design, but so sweet!  I used the Artfully Sent Cartridge and chose one of the pocket cards for the cute tulip cut-out in Canary Cardstock.  I backed the flower and stem with paper from X719B Brushed Paper Packet and tied it up with a piece of the new Extra Thick Pixie Twine.  The "Oh So Happy" stamp set is from G1087 Workshops on the go Brushed Scrapbooking Kit and was embossed using our new Z2068 Super-Fine White Embossing Powder.

Here is one of the cute cards that I created with the paper kit.  Check out my Simply Inspired Blog Hop post to see how to make these cute little circle elements.

Simply Inspired Blog Hop: Year Noted

Welcome to our latest Simply Inspired Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from the amazingly talented Bren Yule's blog, you are in the right place.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participants here.

When I saw the papers that are included in the "Year Noted" kit, I knew they would be perfect for a card idea that I have had tucked away for awhile.  The soft colors and small-scale patterns are so well suited for this card.


It's super easy to make these cute little folded pieces.  Punch two 1 1/2" circles and cut a 1" square--sponge the edges of all pieces.  I used Desert Sand to sponge the edges for this card.

Adhere the 1" square to the center of one of the 1 1/2" circles.  Fold the edges of the circle along each edge of the square.  Adhere to the other 1 1/2" circle and add an embellishment to the center.  Buttons, paper flowers or sparkles would be great to 
add to the centers--you might have some 
perfect embellishments in your stash!

Now hop on over to Denise Anderson-Turley's blog and see her amazing project for this month!
