Here's what's in the line up for today.....Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy, and By the Numbers. Fun, Fun stuff, I tell ya!

  I've got two for you today showing By the Numbers in action! 

Here I used all the die-cut numbers as a backdrop for my card.  I love the faux embossed look you get when you die cut an image in the same color cardstock (fossil) as the background.  Since I was making a 7 yr. old birthday card I decided to stamp only the # 7 with the cool music note stamp.  It was  a natural fit since my Jillibean designer paper has some music notes on it too. I also used the polka dot background stamp to pretty up my orange circle. 

 I stamped the sentiment on another new die-namic (more on that later this week) and used some circle die-namics from other sets (sweet stack and first place award ribbon).  The stars come from the  Notched Tag set.  And for good measure you'll notice I used the open zig zag that for boy cards.
Another birthday card is up next.....all of a sudden we have a lot of summer birthdays going on around us.  I did this one up with some Lime Twist papers and another new die-namic ('ll see more of this later in the week)'s a tag!

 I created a different, custom background on the tag with the words happy and birthday from the By the Numbers set and added a fish tail banner thanks to my FAVE First Place Award Ribbon die-namic. It's all tied up with some Pea Pod twine.

 I tell you every month that I am a sucker for a die and matching stamp set.....well, this month is NO different. This set is brilliant! Lots and lots of ways to dress up die cut numbers.....what's not to love!

Hope you have fun on day one of our teaser sure to stop by Kim's Blog for the list of Tearser Time blogger's today.



  1. love the way you created that background Lisa!

  2. Love the look of embossing without actually embossing on the first card. I also really like the tag on the second card. Beautiful work!

  3. Lisa, I LOVE that first card! The tone-on-tone numbers. The twine. The layered circles. Everything is fabulous. I also like how you placed the sentiment on a banner instead of on the tag for your second card. Looks great on the alpha paper.

  4. HOLY MOLY! I LOVE how you attached the numbers for the Faux Embossed look! That is AMAZING LIsa!!!

  5. LOOOOVE this--I love the numbers on the same color of paper--FABULOUS design:)

  6. LOVE the faux embossing, and wow, so much goodness going on that second card, nice!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
