Oh Baby!

Guess What?  We have a new baby in the family.  My husbands cousin just had her first baby.  I'm so happy for her. As you can probably tell by the card she had a little girl.

For this card I used the sketch over at the Friday Mashup.  Colors on this card are Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, and Crumb Cake.  I also used some Early Espresso Ink for the congratulations and the butterfly's antennas. I think the DSP I used is retired but it went perfect with this so I went ahead and used it.  I did the emboss resist technique with the butterfly's from the Papillion Potpourri set on Whisper White CS.  The Congratulations is from Sassy Salutations, I love that set.  The main butterfly is stamped in pool party and punched out using the butterfly punch and popped up on dimensionals.

On the inside of the card I stamped a greeting from Cuddles & Kisses and a little butterfly in the corner.

Thanks for stopping by:)


What a cute baby card, Steph! Love the soft pastels and popped up butterfly. Hope you get a chance to spend some time with the new baby in your family if they live close by. :) Thanks for playing with us this week at the Friday Mashup.

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
