The Best Gift is to Give Part of Your Self

......and that is the powerful little sentiment on these two cards made for my Dentist and her assistant!  They both speak Spanish and since I had this one stamp " el mejor regalo es dar una parte de ti mismo " I couldn't resist using it to adorn the cards!   

Introducing MY DENTIST

I must say that my dentist and her staff are amazing!  They treat you with such kindness, you have no idea!  Both my daughter and I are nervous when it comes to dental procedures, but through their care, I am coming around to being a much more comfortable patient.  

If you are near our area, you might want to see Dr. Rodriquez here BELLESMERE DENTAL CLINIC - as you can see they have more than just me as happy patients!  


I wanted SIMPLE and SUNNY - and I think I pulled that off! 
These cards are under 5 minutes to make each - and the fact that they
will belong soon to two people who share something similar in their lives meant
I wanted to make each one an individual effort, and yet, retain something in common - an
easy breezy style!  And colour - lushious colour!   

Check out this flower!  Dimension is good, very good for a card - or any project!  Colour combinations 
are fun - like picking our your outfit for the day!!!   Then you can combine layers of printed patterns when 
the colours are paired nicely.....my Concord Crush and Poppy colours are also
lightened with the addition of the white paper.  Add another burst of colour
with the brad - and presto, you've got a fantastic flower! 

Unfortunately, this is one of the dies in our Retiring List which is currently running
through Stampin' Up! transition to our NEW CATALOGUE due out June !. 
So if you want this die for the Big Shot -contact me :) 

On this card - I treated the TOP a little differently!   Its created with one of our newest dies - Adorning Accents, and a simple little step like this helps you to create interesting style.....its easy smeasy!!!

And this flower is one of our current Punches and the scalloped border was created with one of our most recent additions to the Stampin' Up family!  The paper and ribbons shown here
today are retiring {the green retired awhile ago - but is similar to another 
current colour}.....but I've always got a 'stash', lol! 

Combine your greeting with sweet styled die-cut borders....

...or for something different, turned sideways!  Here it is paired with the strip
of co-ordinating designer floral paper {polka dot Poppy paper is a separate sheet}.

I love trying to make something regular become a little irregular!  Try it! 

And don't forget your dentist - they're helpin' you keep a good-looking smile {ting!}
