Tag Archives: Best of Shelli





Welcome to June!!

Boy, Half of 2014 is gone…  But, for me, June embodies the gloriousness of summer.  The final school bell sounded this past week and we are looking forward to all the laziness (yeah, right… I just had twins) that summer can bring.  Well, we can dream about it anyway…

For this installment if the easel calendar, I used the Best of Shelli stamp set.  It had this nice bird and flower stamp.  Super easy to use and very elegant.  I used the Primrose Petals ink and paper for it and the bird is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar.





I hope you can take some time to enjoy summer as well.  You can start by heading over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you:




Best of…. Shelli


So, welcome back for the next installment of the BEST OF tour.  This month is Best of Shelli….  This stamp set was hand picked by co-founder Shelli Gardner as some of her favorite images.  One look at the set will tell you why…

And, I’ve been on a 3×3 kick lately, so the project I have for you is this little 3×3 note card set housed in one of those FABULOUS muslin bags from the Holiday Catalog.  Have a look-see:




So, you probably already know that I’m in love with this year’s In-Colors.  This set of cards features two:  Baked Brown Sugar and Strawberry Slush.  And, it has that incredible stretch ruffled ribbon.  Just a small piece, but that’s all it needs.  I stamped the image in baked brown sugar and used the sentiment from the stamp set “Six Sided Sampler”.  And, I copied that same image on both the envelope and INSIDE the envelope with those awesome framelit envelope liner.  JUST LOVE THOSE.




Close up of the card so you can see the little flag of ribbon I stapled on.  I covered it with the faceted buttons and put one of those GIGANTIC rhinestones inside to cover the holes.  It adds the perfect amount  of bling and covers the staple…  🙂




These are those muslin bags.  AND THEY’RE STAMP-ABLE.  I put a thin piece of cardboard inside just to make it rigid and keep color from bleeding through and just had at it.  I copied the same embellishment on the bag, but instead of the staple I used the hot glue gun…

I love these bags because of the drawstring.  It gives a nice little ruffle on the top and the string is long enough to tie in a knot or a bow.  And, it has cute little tassels on the end.  These are 8 for $9.95.  (4×5.5″)  I can TOTALLY see these for gift cards at Christmas.  Or jewelry bags.  or…or… or…

OR… 3×3 note cards!!


Here is an upclose of the envelopes.  And, the envie insert.  These will SPICE UP ANY envelope and make it the NOT BORING WHITE ENVELOPE.  I used card stock I stamped as the liner… but, probably better would be to use DSP.  Just cause card stock is a little thick.  But, it still works.



Final product…  It’s SO fun making 3×3 cards….

Next, you are on to Deb Leigh.  Enjoy the tour!!
