Ribbon of Hope Bikini

This is a card I made for my sister and sent to her last week. I hope she'll get a big kick out of it. I found the pattern here:

The bra bikini is the front of the card and the bottoms are the back of the card. I used the #117153 Sending Love DSP from the Occasions Mini which has a special shimmer on it. I used Blush Blossom card stock as the base to my card. I used the new punch style of the Small Heart in the Occasions Mini. The "Ribbons of Hope" stamp set is in the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog on page 208. It is one of the sets you can get free if you spend $50 in merchandise during Sale-a-Bration, but be sure to use the Item #120261 on page 11 of the Sale-a-Bration Mini.

Rich Razzleberry Whimsical Words

I used the stamp set Whimsical Words (2010 SAB Mini)
I love the In-Color Rich Razzleberry which I used on this card along with Whisper White. The ink is also Rich Razzleberry. Other Stampin' Up! items I used was the new Small Heart Punch, the Full Heart Punch, Big Shot, Movers and Shapers Bigz Die with magnetic heart, Eyelet Border Punch, Rich Razzleberry Ribbon, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

Position the magnetic heart inside the Movers and Shapers Die and lay the cardstock down over the heart. Position the cardstock between the two cutting pads, and run through the Big Shot. It cuts out a heart and also make a score line to fold the card in half.

Stamp "Follow your heart~it knows the way" on Whisper White cardstock using the Rich Razzleberry ink pad. It is easier to stamp your words first before punching the white heart out. Use the Full Heart Punch to punch out the white heart. With your card closed, attach the white heart through the heart opening to the inside with Snail Adhesive.

Punch out a Small Heart (or the Heart to Heart Punch) through a scrap piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and attach to the verse with a dimensional.

Use the Eyelet Border Punch to punch one side of the Whisper White.

Take the Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and wrap around the Whisper White eyelet border piece. Tie a knot in the center of the ribbon and attach to the front of the card with Snail Adhesive.

This Girardelli Holder was made using the Big Shot and my Petal Die. Then I used the Specialty Sending Love DSP from the Occasions Mini. I used the Whimsical Words stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Mini and cut it out with my Full Heart Punch. I gave these treat holders to a couple of my co-worker friends for Valentines.

Embossed Heart

This card was made using the new A Happy Heart stamp set and the Pinking Hearts Border Punch, both from the Occasions Mini Catalog. The black cardstock was cut at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" and then I used the border punch on all four sides and then layered it on Whisper White cardstock. I used Versamark to stamp the heart on Taken with Teal card stock and then cut it out after I embossed with black embossing powder. I then layered it onto the Basic Black card stock and I attached the black gingham ribbon.
