Starburst Sayings for Zoe's 13th Birthday!

Hello there,
Yesterday was my lovely daughters 13th birthday :-)
She (obviously) had school during the day but she said it was alright and then in the afternoon/evening we had a little party with close friends and family, it was a lovely time.
So, this is the card I made, I kept it quite simple yet I realised when I was listing them that I actually used a whole heap of goodies to create this card! (I have tried to list everything I used at the bottom of this post)
 I stamped and punched these cute flowers from Petit Petals (and they are a bargain too at just £18.95 for the stamp set and matching punch!), the leaves are made with the bird punch and I added some hot pink twine I had around at home too.
 The sparkly chevron look was created by die cutting a circle from scrap card and using it as a mask to stamp through with the Positively Chevron stamp. I inked the stamp using Versamark and used Heat and Stick powder, heat then add Dazzling Diamonds; re-heat briefly and the glitter stays put :-)
 The main image was heat embossed onto Strawberry Slush card using white embossing powder and the smallest was heat embossed with silver powder onto Coastal Cabana card, then both were die cut out using the matching Starburst dies. All added to the card with plenty of dimensionals :-D 
Did you notice I ran the edges of the top layer through the silver ink pad for an extra bit of bling?
 Inside, I added a cute sentiment from the Just Sayin' set. I'm afraid the colours are a bit off  for the inside as I photographed this the night before her birthday before I wrote in the card ;-)
OK, that's all from me for today.
BUT only 'till Monday!!! Remember to place you order and get your freebies before this fab promo finishes!
Thanks for looking today,
Stampin' Hugs,

Turn the Twisty Treats kit into cards!

Hi there,
Todays cards are made with the Twisty Treats kit that is FREE with Sale-a-Bration- but remember it's only running 'till the end of this month! :-)
I have had this kit (un-opened) for a little while and so pulled it out the other day to have a look through. I love the pretty patterned cello bags and I was thinking I will probably use them this Easter? Anyway I figured I would have a play with the tags and twists in the kit and the "Big Wish" stamp set was out so I came up with these two cards...
I used the Note Cards (from page 162 of the Annual Catalogue) as the base for these cards adding the sentiment inked with markers from Big Wish before I die cut it out using the Chalk Talk Framelits. No, you aren't mistaken, there isn't a die this size in there, I had to make it shorter by running it through twice ;-)
These strips are wired and would twist for sealing the bags but I adhered them to the card with red line tape; folding some for extra "jujsh" (<< not sure how to spell this made up word!)
and last for this card some Island Indigo chevron ribbon and a touch of twine decorates the top of the tag.
Second card, more twisty strips and I made a banner from the tag this time, love the glitter hearty stickers that come in the pack too :-)
and another sentiment from Big Wish on this tag topped with ruffled ribbon.
 I inked the sentiment with my markers but notice I did the "present" word half with Smoky Slate and Tangerine Tango for this two toned look. Yes, I meant to do it :-P
OK, that's me done for today, I'll be back soon with more.
Thanks for visiting today :-)))
