Day 4, the last day of sneaks before the big hop tomorrow!! Are you ready?? You're gonna love this release!! Today I'm featuring the new Celebrate Good Times stamp and die set, and the new large Tag Dies. I LOVE these!! When I decided on the paper I wanted to use, I knew I wanted to do a banner to match. But I wasn't sure how I was going to do it. It wasn't working with just one tag. Aha! Why not use TWO tags! I overlapped the tops so the pretty scallops would be on either end, and viola, problem solved! Now there is room for the pretty banner....
 .....for ice cream.......
 .....for Courtney's initial.....
 ....and for a chocolatey cupcake too! Doesn't the frosting look real! Liquid Applique. I love this stuff. I use white for snow, and the brown is perfectly chocolatey and looks almost good enough to eat. ALMOST - really, don't eat it, K? ;)
But then another dilemma. How to make the card stand up when it's one sided with no folds. I scoured youtube and google and pinterest looking for an idea to make an easel without a die. No luck. Then I got a brain flash!! Worked out beautifully don't you think?!
And it folds flat for mailing too. Perfect! :)

  1. Fabulous card! I love that frosting on the cupcake. Can you tell me more about liquid applique and who makes it?

    1. Thank you! :) Liquid Applique is found in the sewing department and is made for 'fake' embroidery on fabric, but can also be used on paper as you see here. When it dries, it's puffy! It's made by Marvy. Comes in lots and lots of colors too!

  15. The chocolate icing looks so real. I had to come see what it was. Do they make colored liquid applique or did you color it? Looks great!

  16. Fabulous card. I've never saw brown applique. Did you colour it yourself? Very creative use of the tags.
