A few to share

I've been busy!

My sister has been sick so I made and sent her this card. She hasn't gotten it yet so *sshhhhh*

I used Tempting Turqouise for the cardbase. Then layered River Rock stamped with linen background stamp in Tempting Turqouise. I roughed up the edges and sponged with TT. I stamped the whale on Very Vanilla using my Pun Fun Stampin up stamp set in basic gray. I colored with basic gray, Tempting Turquois and Cool Caribbean. I wrapped a silver cord around and tied it in the back.

it was a very simple card but it turned out very cool looking in person. :)

My mom had some sad news of friends passing away. These are my least favorite kind of cards to make!
For this card I used Soft Sky CS for the base layered with Fall flowers DP, Old Olive and stamped on Very Vanilla the flower from Year After Year. Colored the flower in with Blush Blossom and Old Olive. The bottom is a 1 1/4" strip that I tore. I used gunmetal brads on the ends and very vanilla in the center for the words from So Many sayings. I sponged basic gray around it. The ribbon is creme organdy ribbon is from SU.

This is for my demo who lent me her stamps. :) It's a similar design as before but with flowers and brads on the ends of the bottom. I used Bashful blue for the card base, Cutie Pie DP, Certainly Celery and very vanilla to stamp my sheep from Pun Fun. I colored him in with Basic gray and Rose Red. The bottom strip is popped up with pop up dots! :) I punched out the flowers with a retired SU punch. I don't know the name of it.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Wedding

My sister just got engaged and she asked me to make cards to formally invite her friends to be bridesmaids. I used papertrey white for the cardbase, Bashful Blue, and shimmery white. I chose the Bashful blue because that is the color she is using for her wedding. Baroque Motifs and Year After Year are the stamps I used. I water colored the cake using the lids from my stamp pad from bashful blue, basic gray and rose red. The ribbon is from Michaels and matched perfectly! :) I embossed the background stamp for baroque motifs but the rest is not embossed. I touch of stickles on the heart turned it redder then I meant for it to be.

Baby its you!

This is a card I made for a baby swap. The swaped cards are being donated to a local pregnancy center.

I used papertrey white for the base of the card. Bashful blue in a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (a little smaller) for the background. The designer paper is from Cutie pie and its cut in a 3 3/4 x 5 size. The Hippo is from Pun Fun and I stamped it on shimmery white. I cut it out 3x3 and tore it along the two edges. So saffron behind that is cut at 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and torn on the two edges. I cut out Rose red on my cricut with a 2 1/2" oval and a 2" oval in shimmery white. I used warm words for the sentiment. I tied the organdy ribbon and used a glue dot to secure it in place. It was a fairly simple card to make but turned out really cute.
