I have a couple of projects to share.

Lately I have grown to like these Uptown Girl stamps.  This one is called Felicity and Blair Living Life.  Something about them reminds me of my younger (and thinner) days!  Haha.  And the phase in my life when my friends and I were into drinking wine.  Hmmm, that was short lived.  But I love the sentiment which I heat embossed onto vellum and might be a tad hard to read.  It says, "friends like you make this world a better place for me."  Maybe it's referring to the alcohol and cupcakes?  Anyway, I used my Perfect Layers rulers for the mats behind the girls.  I used Scrapbook Adhesives tape runner to adhere my papers.  So easy and fast to put things together when using the tape runner.  I also used the 3D foam squares to pop up the girls and the sentiment.  There is a nice thickness to these squares.  I also love their 3D foam hearts.  Both sides of the hearts are sticky so I peeled one side off and dipped it into some glitter to create my glitter hearts on either side of my sentiment.  Plus it was a nice way to hide the 3D squares I used under the sentiment.

A closer look at the matting behind the girls.  You can create thin and thick layers using these rulers.

My second project is a Flower Pot Pocket Card.  I generally followed the tutorial HERE on Splitcoaststampers.  The only difference is I wanted a taller and a bit wider pot.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and I layered the mats using my rulers.  The flowers are from Prima and I used 3L Dodz to adhere them.  I used 3L's Crafty Power Tape to adhere the ribbon.

When you pull out the flowers there is a little place to write a message or maybe even add a gift card.  I left it blank because I haven't decided yet what to do with this card.  The layers were used with my rulers and I thought adding some photo corners from 3L would be a nice touch.  I just peeled back the corners of my white cardstock a bit to slide the photo corners on.

Here's a photo of all the different 3L adhesives/products I used to create my projects.  

That's it for me.  Next up is Roxie!

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful cards Eva. I especially love the way you have heat embossed your message in white on vellum in the 1st card. It looks very classy.

Super cards! Love the use if photo corners in the second card. It really adds something & has taught me that they are not just for photos. Thanks, Barbara x
