Blue and Gold Baby Thank You

Hello! I hope that you are having a great weekend. Mine has been a blast! I had a card class on Friday night and there were eleven fun and fabulous ladies here andwe had a wonderful time.

My kiddos were away overnight last night, so I stayed up late and did some stamping. A friend of mine requested some baby thank you cards for her little one that is arriving this spring. She and her hubby graduated from WVU and are huge mountaineer fans, which inspired the color combo for this card. I used Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight to create the Mountaineer Blue and Gold. This is what is so nice about making your own cards- you can customize them to fit your personality!

This is a pretty quick card to make, which is the perfect type for mass production. The little baby outfit is from the level one hostess set in the Occasions mini catalog called "Slice of Life". I colored it with a blender pen in Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight ink. The card base was run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I really liked the way this sweet little card turned out and I'm glad my friend did too!

Have a fantastic Sunday! I have more cards that I will try to get posted over the course of the week. Check back soon!

Build a Blossom Birthday

Oh my goodness! I can't believe it's been over two weeks since I last posted. So sorry! I have been stamping, but I just haven't had much extra time to get pictures and write the posts. I will try to do better- how many times have you heard that?

We are having beautiful weather here today and I thought that this bright and sunny card was fitting to share on such a pretty day. I hope that you are having nice weather where you are, too!

I have been having so much fun with this new set from the Occasions Mini catalog called, "Build a Blossom". It also has a matching punch (Blossom Petals Punch) that punches out all of the beautiful petals and leaves. At first, I didn't think I needed this set, but my sister convinced me otherwise (thanks, Marcy!) and I'm so glad she did. I think it would be very difficult to make an ugly card with this set and punch. Did you notice the pretty frame around the border of the Daffodil Delight cardstock? It was made with the new embossing folder also in the Occasions mini. It is called, "Framed Tulips". These products will all be available until April 30th. Make sure to order everything that you want by then!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful evening!

Elegant Birthday

Hello again! I have a birthday card to share with you today. It was made for a family friend who celebrated her birthday over the weekend. The first one was made using a new technique that I found on Kelly Acheson's blog. It uses the satin ribbon to make a flower. The link to her tutorial is here. I was happy with it and thought it turned out well for a first attempt.

I sprayed the front of this card with homemade shimmer spray and added lots of rhinestones to give it lots of bling. The sentiment came from the new stamp set in the Occasions mini catalog called "Bring on the Cake".

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Bring on the Cake
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Paper: Basic Gray, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Accessoris: Big Shot, Elegant Lines embossing folder, Wide Oval punch, Scallop Trim border punch, Rich Razzleberry satin ribbon, shimmer spray, heat tool
Techniques: Ribbon Flower
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
