I hope you are ready to see some amazing stuff!!! This is the best DT ever and I know you will get lots of great ideas to use these new products or new ways to use what you already have.
Here's what I made for you today. A simple card, but I think it's a fun one!


 Now...who wouldn't love a girls night out?! I know I would...and actually I think it's about time for one. Anyway, I used the Stitched Restroom Peeps Die and cut three of the ladies. I used dimensionals to attach to the tag die base. Love them! Then I cut three tiny strips of paper, each a bit shorter and glued to the tag right under the girls. Just a bit of interest to break up the elements a bit. For the stamp, I used the square piece that comes out when you cut the Stitched Mini Frame and Arrow die. I popped it up on dimensionals as well.


I love how this new stamp has a bit of a shadow line around the main words. It's those little touches that make Emma's stuff so special. For the bottom edge of the tag, I used glossy accents to attach my sequins. Such a cute look...love sequins! You can also see I did a simple sewing line around the mat layer under the tag. I also inked the edges a bit. The size of this card is 3x6. I'm having fun making some different sized cards lately...getting bored with A2! Plus, having the Envelope Punch Board, I can make about any size envelope I want and they will match my card! It is by We R Memory Keepers. A great tool to have!  


Here is the inside of my card. To make the bit at the top, I used one of the little decorative swirls and stamped them so they just touched at the sides and made a boxed area to stamp the invite. Then I simply used the stamp on the side to fill in all the details. A super cute way to invite your friends for any type of party or gathering. Inked the edges again and simply glued flat in place.

And a quick photo with the envelope I made with the Envelope Punch Board.


I hope you liked my card for you today. And I hope you are enjoying the blog hop. Amazing stuff....as usual!
Here is my list of what I used on this card. 
Fright Night Stamp Set ~ New Release
Girls Night Out Stamp Set ~ New Release
Let's Celebrate ~ New Release 

So...I just can't stop!!! I came up with a second card for you. I LOVE how this came out...hope you do too!


Isn't it cute!!! I love how this die looks like one of those room divider screens. I "hung" the dress on the door and set her purse at the bottom. 


To make the purse, I stamped the image and then fussy cut it by hand. Not easy! Then I cut a second waist band like on the dress, turned it around, glued it on the bottom of the purse. It's not a perfect fit, so the bits of the stamp that showed, I just trimmed off. I also cut to label dies and cut the black one in half. I trimmed off what showed and glued to each end of the top piece. I like that look of layering. I ran the blue piece through with an embossing folder for texture. Tied a bow and put dimensionals under for added depth. I also put on some shiny black gems. I hope you like this as much as I did! 

Here's what I used.
