Packaged Pretty - Sweet Stamp Shop RELEASE WEEK!

It's another fun release week at Sweet Stamp Shop!! I got to make samples with a new set called "Packaged Pretty" and it's so versatile!! I don't know about you, but for me inspiration always begins with the paper I'm using. I've been using a lot of pastels lately and wanted to change it up a bit. Then, a couple of days ago I picked up these papers from My Mind's Eye's new Indie Chic line and I *love* them. I knew I wanted to do a layout and I wanted to make something funky. I cut my pages into strips then used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors then layered them on the page. I stamped and embossed the sentiment, "Just because." in a bright orange. Using silver stickers I wrote my sister's names and then wrote "you are total hams & i love you for it" with rub-ons. Here are the details:
Because I wanted to share how versatile this stamp set is I created a second project; a card. I went in a totally different direction using bright pinks, turquoise, and gold embellishments. This card would be perfect for writing a little note to a friend to send along with a fun gift package. The sentiment says, "WARNING - Content of this package might cause a Happy... dance." How stinkin' cute is that?! I stamped and embossed it in gold and adhered it to the pink glitter paper with foam dots. (You know how I love dimension!) The fringe ribbon, stripe ribbon, and sequins are Dear Lizzy and the gold glitter tape is American Crafts. Details:
