Sweet Baby

Hi Stamping Friends.  I have a really cool card that I wanted to show you yesterday and today, but for some reason blogger is not cooperating, and the picture only comes out sideways.  I'll keep working on it though....I know you'll like it!

So today's card is one we made in our card ministry tonight.  I'm not always good at creating baby cards, but that's what they needed for their ministry.  I do like the way it turned out.  The colors are whisper white and calypso coral.  The stamp set is Embellished Events.  The neat thing is we make 8 cards, 4 designs, and 4 of the cards go to the ministry, and the other 4 each person gets to keep.  Because Embellished Events has other occasions, people were able to make other cards besides baby for their personal collection.

Swallowtail Celebrate

Hi Stamping Friends.  Today's card is another one of those that is soooo much prettier in real life.  Can you tell I really like the Swallowtail stamp?!?  This card is a total CASE from another demonstrator.  We made it in our technique class a few weeks ago.  The butterfly is stamped with Versamark on Vellum card stock, then embossed with black embossing powder.  Next it's spritzed with water.  Taking an aqua painter and reinkers, the cardstock is "touched" with the aqua painter and the color just spreads.  The reinker colors are real red, pumpkin pie, and pacific point.  Then the butterfly is cut out.  It has the coolest feel to it ... like it COULD be a butterfly.

Interested in joining my technique class?  We meet the first Wednesday of each month.  You will learn 3 techniques each month.  Contact me if you would like more information.

Just Because

Hi Stamping Friends.  I have come to really love the Swallowtail background stamp.  It's huge! But its cool and versatile.  The colors are Soft Suede, Pool Party, Very Vanilla and Comfort CafĂ© Designer Series Paper.  The ribbon is Midnight Muse, and the 5/8" Rose flower trim is the perfect accent.  The sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration stamp Vintage Verses.

Oval Easter Egg

Today's card was a one I learned how to make from Stamping School.  More use of the ovals Framelits found in the Spring Catalog.  The bunny ears were made using the Blossom punch.  The cloud embossing folder was used for the bashful blue background.   Just a fun, cute card, don't you think?

Oval Peeking Bunny

Isn't this the cutest card.  It's a CASE from another demonstrator (don't have the name handy, sorry)....I just love the way the bunny peaks up the side.  The bunny face and ears are all made using the three smallest Oval Framelits.  The colors are Melon Mambo, Black, Pool Party, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White.

Oh, Whale!

Today was "play" day.  I was trying out one of my newest stamp sets called Oh, Whale!  Cute little set, with matching Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper and matching Clearlit Die.  The colors are bashful blue, marina mist, and whisper white (embossed with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder).  So, which layout do you like better?

Faux Denim

Here is a card that was a little outside my "box".  I typically don't do "teen" cards, but this one was actually sort of fun.  I got the approval of my granddaughters, too.  This is one of the cards we did for technique club -- faux denim.  The stitching is also faux ... it's punched holes and connected dots with the white gel pen.  The colors are Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, and Whisper White.  The ink on the stamped jeans from the Patterned Occasions Sale-A-Bration stamp set is Midnight Muse.

Swallowtail Sympathy

This is one of those cards that is soooo much prettier in real life.  Unfortunately, a friend of mine needed a sympathy card for the death of a young man in his 20s.  Very sad.  She mentioned she wanted a white butterfly on the card using the Swallowtail background.  The butterfly is stamped with Versamark on vellum card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  It actually feels like a butterfly.  My friend decided not to clip the wings to fit the card, rather she'll put it in a bigger envelope.
