Floral Butterfly Birthday
by Sharon Harnist

2-24 FPFlowerButterflyBD-SH

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card made for my dear, sweet husband's aunt who turned 94 years young this week!  It came together quickly and easily, by using these fabulous dies:  Fresh Picked Flowers, Primavera Butterfly, Adora Butterfly, Sentimental Happy Birthday.

2-24 FPFlowerButterflyBD-P-SH

I started by die cutting the solid Primavera Butterfly from white cardstock, then the Adora Butterfly die cut from gold metallic cardstock and placed on top.  I love that this gives the look of gold metallic embossing, but a lot easier and less mess!  The butterfly was mounted to a kraft card base with foam tape on the top right wing, to give it some dimension.  The beautiful Fresh Picked Flowers die was cut from white cardstock and then colored with Copic markers G20, G21, and R20.  It was also mounted to the card using foam tape behind the leaves and glue dots behind the flower centers, to create more dimension.  The flower that was originally behind the butterfly was cut off the stem and added with foam tape to the top of the lower right flower.

Finally, the pretty Sentimental Happy Birthday was die cut from gold metallic and white cardstocks then layered together, offset, to create a shadow effect.  To finish the card, clear sequins were scattered on the background and white Nuvo drops added to the flower centers.

Thanks for checking in today . . . I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Happy Day
by Sharon Harnist

Valentine's Day may be over for the year, but that doesn't mean you must put away your "Valentine" stamps and dies!  They can be great for weddings, anniversaries, or just an everyday "Wishing you a very happy day" card!

2-15 WireHeartHappyDay-SH

For this card, I used the Wirework Hearts clear stamp set and coordinating Wirework Hearts die set, along with the Heart Rays die:

2-15 WireHeartHappyDayProd-SH

I simply gold heat embossed the beautiful large wirework heart onto 110 Lb. white cardstock, and die cut it.  I prefer heavier cardstock when heat embossing, to cut down on any possible warping of the cardstock.  Then I popped the heart up with foam tape over a 5.25" x 4" white cardstock panel that had the Heart Rays die cut into it and sentiment also gold heat embossed.  The background panel was placed onto a gold metallic card base -- I love how the base peeks through the tiny die cut hearts!

I really like the simple elegance of this monochromatic gold metallic color scheme, but you could easily change up the colors of the cardstock and/or heat embossing (or stamp in a colored ink), to greatly change the feel of this card!  What colors would you use?  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

You Are Special
by Sharon Harnist

Could you use a little pampering today, to get ready for Valentine's Day?  I'm here to help!  Hello, Memory Box fans -- I'm Sharon Harnist.  I'm new here to the blog and design team and I couldn't be more thrilled!  I've loved and used Memory Box products for MANY years and I am very grateful and excited to begin this journey!

2-ValentineBathSalts-SH

I recently hosted my neighborhood ladies Bunco game night and wanted these wonderful women to feel special and pampered, so I came up with these relaxing bath salts gifts for them!  An internet search for homemade bath salts will yield dozens of recipes for you to try ... I settled on Lavender and Rose Petal.  The easiest part of this project was putting together these sweet tags, to tell the recipients how special they are!  I used the Wirework Hearts clear stamp set:

To stamp the medium wirework heart on the 3-1/2" x 1-7/8" tags, I used Tsukineko Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink.  For the Rose Petal salts, I used Tsukineko Memento Rose Bud ink to stamp the small heart and sentiment.  For the Lavender bath salts, I used Ranger Distress Oxide Wilted Violet ink for the small heart and sentiment.  Then I just tied the tags around the jars with colored twine:

To finish the gifts, I simply made a label to cover the tops of these repurposed frappuccino bottles!

There are TONS of other things you could package as gifts into jars, then just use this versatile stamp set to dress them up and make the recipient feel that much more special!  Thanks so much for joining me today and Happy Valentine's Day!
