Stamp set: Level 2 Hostess set
Accessories: Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, 3/4" circle punch and die-cut flowers
I love this card and it is so simple to make. It is a 12cm square card. I then put an old olive mat on the very vanilla. I chose 2 flowers in the same shape but different size then stamped and punched out the greeting and mounted in using a dimensional.
The ribbon was attached by cutting a length for the left side and taping it down. I then cut a longer length and tied it in a knot and attached it with tape. Obviously I did that before sticking down the olive mat.

Stamp sets: Level 1 Hostess Set, True Friend and a non stampin up alphabet set (hero art)
Accessories: dimensionals, word window punch, stamp-a-ma-jig, rhinestone brad, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, 5 petal flower punch and groovy guava double stitched ribbon.
The card is 12cm square with the front of the card being about 5 mm short, so when the card is closed completely you can see the guava from the back of the card. I scored the card at 9cm and added a strip of chocolate chip for this effect.
The flower image is made by stamping the large flower stamp from the True Friend stamp set found in the spring mini catalogue in certainly celery. I then punched the groovy guava cardstock twice using the 5 petal flower punch, layed them over each other so that they lined up with the stamped flower image. I stuck them using dimensionals. I then punched a circle in choc chip using the 1 3/8" circle punch. I stamped with flower in certainly celery and punched it out using the 1 1/4" circle punch. I then put a green rhinestone brad in the centre and mounted it on dimensionals.
I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to position the brackets around the words Love ya guts. To make the ribbon corner I cut a small length of ribbon and tied it in a know and just stuck it down.

Colours used: Real Red, Old Olive and Whisper White
Stamps sets: Level 2 Hostess set, Happy Everything and A Beautiful Thing (from the spring
Accessories: Dimensionals, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Die-cut blooms, Real Red wide grosgrain ribbon and White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
I love how Real Red and Old Olive go so nicely together.
The girls at work bought her a present so I wrapped it to match the card:
I used paper from Ikea and stamped it using the circle heart image from the level 2 hostess set. I would normally have stamped the paper before wrapping the present but because it was a box I decided to stamp it once it was wrapped so I could put the stamps where I wanted them to go. I used the wide grosgrain ribbon in Old Olive and tied it into a bow. I love how this turned out and everyone commented on how it matched.
Annette we will miss you at work and we wish you all the best in your new job and house. I'm sure you won't forget us and keep in touch.

A closer look at the Black scalloped edge I attached to the base of the card
Cardstock: Taken with Teal, Basic Black textured
Accessories: Paper from Crew Kids Girl Simply Scrappin' kits, 5/8" Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon, Slit punch, Black brads, Flower sticker from Scrappin' kit, piercing tool and rub-ons from the spring mini catalogue.
Once I attached the Black scalloped edge I attached the pink and white paper after attaching the ribbon. I then put a brad in the centre of the flower and 2 at the bottom left of the card. I then put the make a wish rub on down the side of the black cardstock and that's pretty much it. It was a very simple card to make and I quite like it.
