Bride To Be

Another bridal shower card today!  This one uses the Custom Tee and T-Shirt Builder framelits bundle along with some Falling Love designer series paper.  I kept it fairly simple, but am thinking I should maybe add a little more...maybe a doily or some more stamped flowers...

To add a little texture, I placed some basic pearls on the card (I am sure going to miss those! - retiring!)...

The Light You Shine

I had a piece of the Cupcakes and Carousels designer series paper laying around and thought it would work well with the lighthouse and sentiment I wanted to use from the High Tide stamp set.

I stamped the lighthouse first and then added the sentiment before stamping the sand around it.  Then I took the card base and continued the sand, added water and birds.

There are a lot of different images on the card, but truthfully it came together quickly, that is always a good thing!

Simple Birthday

I apologize for the days without posts...there may be more.  This time of year my "real" job  keeps me away from the stamp room while we ship out seed potatoes.  For times like this I like to get a few simple cards created and shared - today's is one of those!

I used the Big on Birthdays stamp set and stamped my image with Early Espresso ink.  Then I used my Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum markers to color in the flowers and leaves.

A few colorful enamel shapes completed the card.

For the Bride

Today I am sticking with the Bundle I used on yesterday's card that involves the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelits.  This time I added a couple pieces die cut from the Stitched Shapes framelits as well and the Cheers to Love stamp set.

I was trying to design a few bridal shower cards and thought it would be fun to do one with a jar containing hearts.  The Stitched Shapes framelits die cut circles were leftover from another project and I thought they would be nice accents along with the background Succulent Garden designer series paper.

You're So Sweet

There are always some designer series paper collections that I wish would stick around for a little longer and the Tasty Treats specialty paper is one of them.  Unfortunately, it will be gone soon so I wanted to share another project idea using it.

I started with a jar stamped and die cut on Whisper White card stock, then I stamped the same jar on the specialty paper and used my paper snips to cut out only the inside and added it to the first jar.  A little Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon, a bow from the Cupcakes and Carousels embellishment kit and a retired rhinestone completed the jar.

The sentiment is from the You're So Sweet stamp set, I just used part of one of the images instead of all of it.

Urban District Birthday

I used the Urban District stamp set and Urban Underground specialty paper and embellishments to make my dad a birthday card.  Today is his birthday so I thought I would share it with you. 

There are several different layers of the specialty paper on the front layered on top of Basic Black card stock.  I added some of the embellishments for accents as well.

On the inside, I used another stamp from the same set along with a past Paper Pumpkin stamp set (Happy Birthday) and added a little more specialty paper.

He is not Here

Today' card stays in theme with the Egg cartons from yesterday - Easter.  I used the same stamp set called Easter Message which is in the Occasions catalog.  I die cut an oval with the Stitched Shapes framelits and stamped the lily image.  It is colored with the Wink of Stella glitter brush and Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz markers.

The strip of polka dotted paper is from the Neutrals collection designer series paper stack.
