Let's Celebrate with a BLOG HOP!!

Hi Hoppers!!
Hopefully you arrived here after visiting Amber Hillman 's Blog. Isn't her work amazing?!! If you didn't arrive from Amber's blog you should start from the top so you don't miss anything! Head on over to Die Cut Diva to start! We are celebrating all the NEW DIES at Creative Cuts & More! This month I decided to make a Card Portfolio for a good friend of mine! She loved it! Hopefully she won't be insulted if she sees just how easy this was! LOL Here it is closed up. I put Prima flowers on the front so I was only able to use 4 cards with matching envelopes. The portfolio will hold up to 6 flat cards with envelopes. The Decorative Label was my bottom layer, I just layered squares and put on a Prima flower with a brad from my brown embellishment jar! Everything is cut in Stardream Chiara. Until you have this paper in your hand you can not understand how beautiful it is. So shimmery and beautiful. I LOVE it! Here is the side view. The ribbon is from my stash. Here are the 4 cards. I made all the layers different and it was super fun deciding what should go where!
The Good Luck stamp is a Studio G I think. All of my dollar stamps are separated and put in CD cases but it is definitely a dollar stamp, could be from Inkadinkado. I love the Filigree Rectangle Label and the Decorative Label. The flower is a Prima and the brad is from my stash.
The Get Well stamp is another dollar one. The Decorative Label is perfect for every card!
The Just A Note stamp is also a dollar stamp. The Vintage Label's are AWESOME! I could use a hundred of these LOL The flower is again a Prima and the brad is from my stash.
Thinking of you again is a dollar stamp. More labels! You have to look at all the labels! Another Prima, big shocker! :-) The button is from my stash as well.
I seriously made these cards in about an hour! It was so easy and so much fun! Now it's time to hop on over to Ceal Pritchett' s Blog! I can't wait to see what she made!
