Today I have two cards to share with you!  This first card is my favorite


Jen Carter Wooo Hooo 2.1 wm


I used several new products on this card. I cut out my panel using the cool Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangle die. I heat embossed my sentiment, from the new I'm All You're All stamp set.  I then added in some banners that I created using the new Border Builder Dies which give you lots of great options for building borders. I'll show you how I created those in a second.  I then cut out the smallest star from the new Seasonal Stars die set to add the star bursts to the card. I popped the stars up with dimensionals.

I love banners!  So when I discovered a super easy way to make a banner using the new Border Builder dies I was very excited!


You'll first use the zig zag die to cut your cardstock.  (I drew the line with a sharpie to mark the center of the die for another project I put together.)



After it cuts, it'll look like this.



I then lined up the double stitched curved die with the top of my zig zag and used a little piece of washi tape to hold it where I wanted it. 



After running it through my die cut machine, this is the final result!

Wooo Hooo Closeup 2.1

My next card uses more of the I'm All You're All stamp set.  


Jen Carter Let Me Help 2.4 wm

I used four of the sentiments from the set and the coordinating Speech Bubble die set.  

Let Me Help Closeup 2.3

Lots of fun combinations of sentiments included in this set!
