This set is packed full of images, sentiments, and even an entire font for you to play with! I couldn't resist the little typwriter, post-it note, or notebook paper. So I had to use all three in my set.
I added some staples and a paperclip to bring home the office feel.

For my her version, I used our Flowers stamp set. I stamped the trio of flowers on a piece of scrap white cardstock. Then cut the stems out and mounted them on dimensionals.
I used the word window die to add my sentiment and finished my card off with a snippet of ribbon to make it pop.
For my him version, I kept the same layout, but changed the stamp set to use one of my favourites, A Guy Thing.
I decided I wanted the little tag to mimic a man's dress shirt, so I stamped the tie on decorative paper, cut it out, and mounted on dimensionals. Then I used my Copic Multiliner to doodle in a little shirt pocket coming off the side of the tag. I added a button and twine to finish everything off.

My brother-in-law is turning 40 very soon. He's a laid-back guy who occasionally enjoys card games, gambling, and the like.
So I created a little gift set for him to celebrate his big day. Just a card and a gift box with a simple blue and kraft color scheme. But tucked inside the box are 40 scratch-off lottery tickets! Hopefully he'll win a little something on them.
Here's a close-up of the card I made. I stamped the stripes across the center of the card in blue ink.
Then, to really highlight his big day, cut out the numbers and popped them up on dimensionals.
To create the box, I used my A2 card box tutorial here. You'll want to stamp on the front of the box before you fold and adhere it closed.
I finished it off with a little twine and a button. I don't have a photo of the lottery tickets inside because- well, call me crazy, but my father's always said they're luckier if you buy them the day of the special occasion. So I always do that!
I have a coordinating little something-something up on the Clear and Simple Stamps iPhone App today to round out this gift set.
Ok, the gloves are off! Nicki from Clear and Simple Stamps issued some of the design team a challenge a few weeks ago. We're having a Sparkle-thon!
Each designer is to use the Spread the Love image any way we'd like to create a project. And our added twist was to include glitter.
I'm paired against the amazing Kim Duran- all I can say is that I don't expect to make it past the first round!
I created a fun little gift set. This is the card that goes along with the gift.
I'm in love with ombre everything lately, so I couldn't resist using some of my favourite CSS pinks for ombre stripes. And for a little fun, I mixed it up and added glitter to the top and bottom stripe.
It was so easy to add the glitter. I just cut a strip of 1/4" Simple Adhesive, laid it across my card base, sprinkled on the glitter, then brushed off with a tiny paint brush. [This is actually the least messy way I've found to work with glitter!]
