Stitched Avant Garden

I have added this card to my Stamp A Stack rotation recently, it is one that is easy to put together since I have the pieces all cut out and ready to go. 

The flower image is from the Avant Garden stamp set (SAB 2017) and the sentiment comes from Flourishing Phrases.  I used the stitched shapes framelits and some Blooms and Bliss designer series paper as well.

Happy 13

About a month ago, our middle child turned 13 and this is the card I made for him.  I know not to get too crazy and elaborate on cards for my boys because they don't really care what they look like (like most kids probably). 

I chose a couple different patterns of designer series paper from the Tasty Treats specialty paper collection for the background.  Then I added a couple balloons punched out using the Balloon bouquet punch and added some linen thread to them.

I also added a balloon cut using the Balloon framelits and added the number using the Number of Years stamp set.  The sentiment is from another stamp set called Super Duper which is in the Occasions catalog.

Let Hope Be Your Lighthouse

This is another variation of a couple of cards I have made with the High Tide stamp set.  I chose to stamp the lighthouse and surrounding images on Tip Top Taupe card stock this time.

I added half a lace doily behind that layer and popped up my sentiment layer over the top.  The "With Sympathy" comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Twinkle Twinkle

As promised I have a couple more Moon Baby samples for you today.  I again used some leftover Paper Pumpkin accessories (enamel stars) as embellishments because I thought they fit the theme perfectly!

The marker colors used on these cards are similar to yesterday - Pool Party, Daffodil Delight - but I chose to use Pacific Point and Old Olive for the baby clothing on these. 

I also had some retired washi tape with stars on it that I thought would work well with the second card so I used a couple strips over the designer series paper.

For someone who doesn't enjoy coloring in images, I think this set will still get quite a bit of use!

Hello Baby

I have had fun playing with the Moon Baby stamp set that is in the Occasions catalog.  Today I have a baby girl card for you and tomorrow I will have a couple baby boy cards using the same stamp set.

I chose to use Pink Pirouette card stock for my base and added a paper lace doily and strip of designer series paper to the background.  The enamel stars are from a Paper Pumpkin kit and I colored in my images with markers.

Happy Day

I love the colors and designs in the Tasty Treats Specialty paper pack even though I don't intend to purchase the Cool Treats stamp set to go along with it (or the matching Frozen Treats Framelits dies) - at least not yet, LOL!  I decided that I wouldn't have enough use for those but we will see as time goes by I guess!

I chose a piece of the specialty paper as my focus on this card and added some Watermelon Wonder card stock behind it that was embossed with the Hexagons dynamic folder.

The sentiment is from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set and I used the 2 3/8" scallop punch and 2" circle punch.

Hearts and Lace

Another holiday card to share with you today using the Sealed with Love Bundle which includes the Love Notes framelits dies and the Sealed with Love stamp set.

I took a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Pink Pirouette card stock and die cut the hearts border on both sides.  Then, I scored one side right along the hearts on both sides and then scored 4 1/4" from the second score line to make sure the middle of the card was 4 1/4".  I glued down the heart border on the right side with snail adhesive.

On the inside I added a piece of Succulent Garden designer series paper and on the outside I used some Crumb Cake card stock with a stamped border, lace doilies, 3/8" metallic ribbon and a 2 1/2" and 2" circle.

The circles are only attached to the card base on the left side so the card can open properly.
