Wedding Shower Card

In honor of all the hard work Denise did on the invitations, I decided to work on the card for her sister-in-law-to-be for the shower. I used the wedding colors (black, white and lavender) and created this little card. I used the lavender cardstock as the base and used some Stampin' Up rub ons for the floral part. I used the Stampin' Up stamp from the Happily Ever After set and stamped it in black on the lower portion of the card. I cut the oval for the background for the dress using a circle cutter then embossed it with a curvy line motif on a Fiskars texture plate. I used the Crop-A-Dile to punch two hole in the crease of the card and set 2 large black eyelets. I threaded through black, white and a lavender see-thru ribbon and tied them in a bow. I hot-glued a string of faux pearls around the edge of the black oval. I used a dress punch to make the dress, and embellished it with a 3-d embossing gel, and sprinkled lavender and white glitter on it. Once dried, I used a 3-d glue tab to position it on the black piece. And there you have it! I wish I could get better pictures to really show the detail and proper colors but my camera keeps dying and the scanner is just plain difficult! Oh well! Have a great one and I'll probably be back with a new card this weekend! Thanks for peeking :)

Good Morning! Thanks for stopping by again! Today I have a whole bunch of things to get to so this will be short! This latest post is the birthday card I made for my sister-in-law. I used a miscellaneous lot of supplies in brown, banana (not sure of the real name but it's Stampin' Up) and white. I used Stampin' Up stamps, silver brads and brown ribbon. I also "stitched" the sides of the white, using a paper sewing machine with no thread. The corner pieces were cut with shaper scissors. Finally, I used clear embossing ink and clear glitter to embellish the cake. Please excuse the image...I've been using my scanner and it's not the greatest quality. I promise to have better pics soon! Thanks!

My latest creation

Tomorrow is my friend Erica's birthday so I decided to make her an original card. I used Stampin Up Certainly Celery cardstock and ink on the card base, Stampin Up Bashful Blue as the accent background, Stampin Up stamps and Floral Punch and some coordinating ribbon and a patterned paper I found that matched the colors perfectly. I punched the flowers out of the patterned paper 4 times, used a needle to poke holes through the centers and used pastel yellow brads as the centers. The stems are just ribbon stitched randomly through the cardstock. I also used the Stampin Up Tag Punch and layered the colors. The picture makes the card look crooked, but I assure you it's even! Thanks for checking it out and feel free to leave your input! Have a great night!

Hello and Welcome to my new blog! I am relatively new to the blog scene and decided to create one after some coaxing on the part of my best friend. Her name is Denise and she can be credited with my addiction to stamping!

That being said, here is my first posting for a project:

This is the card I created for my step-dad for Father's Day. I used some baseball printed paper, some decorative buttons, and some miscellaneous cardstock from my scrapbox. I used stamps from Stampin Up as well as Close to My Heart. Sorry about the picture quality!
My intent is to post new cards as often as possible so keep checking back! Thanks!
