Here's another card made with the Petite Pennants Punch. I used the Wish Big stamp from Word Play. I inked each letter of wish separately and stamped them out with the punch. The pennants are strung on white baker's twine that I dyed Elegant Eggplant.

Sometimes you just need a quick, simple card that's still cute. I stamped two flowers using the set Awash With Flowers then cut out an embossed scallop square to use as a vase (or planter).
Awash With Flowers is a two-step stamping set, so I stamped the outline and then the color for the petals separately. I used a separate stamp for the stems. This gave me the flexibility to angle the stems the way I wanted them.

I recently bought the Daisies #2 Die and this is the first card I made with it. The center of the flower is a glimmer brad. I love the sparkle that glimmer brads add.

Engraved Greetings is retired, but I still love this set. It makes an elegant thank you or birthday card in a hurry. If you didn't get this set before it retired, I happen to have a brand new one that I'd be happy to sell you. Just let me know.
The top card uses the Sweet Button Embosslit which is great for making your own embellishments. You can make cardstock buttons in any color you want to match your project. On this card I made the "thread" with my Island Indigo marker, but on other cards I have used my 1/16" circle punch to punch out the holes and then used Linen Thread or Baker's Twine.

This card is similar to one I posted back in May. To show you how versatile this layout can be, I used different ribbon and different stamps (Four Frames and Teeny Tiny Wishes). The ribbon has retired, but you could use 5/8" satin ribbon in its place.
