Saturday, January 28th Workshop

Here's one of the cards we created at my Workshop on Saturday. 

Cherry Cobbler CS was used for the base of the card and also to make the little hearts with the new Embosslits Fashionable Hearts.The Typewriter and you're just my type is from the You're My Type Stamp Set.  On the inside the silhouette stamp is from the Take It to Heart Stamp set.  The typewriter was embossed with Black Embossing Powder.  The strip on the front is Riding Hood Red Pleated Ribbon and the inside Cherry Cobbler on the bottom was punched with the Hearts Border Punch and the little black strip was punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  The idea came from Mary Fish at Stampin' Pretty who says she got it from Ellen Smallwood.  Thanks so much for sharing ladies.

Have a GREAT week and keep Stampin'!  Hugs, Julia

D's Birthday Card

Here's the card I made for my Daughter's boyfriend.

I used Early Espresso CS for the base layer.  The paper on the right is Everyday Enchantment DSP and on the left is Well Worn DSP.  The greeting is from the Perfectly Penned Stamp Set.  I used the Lace Ribbon Border Punch with Early Espresso for the design down the side and on the inside.  The ribbon is Pear Pizzazz Pleated Satin.  The little flower was punched out of Calypso Coral using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  I put a Brad in the center of the blossom from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack from the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

The idea came from Lianne Carper's site CARD Scraps.  She has some beautiful creations, check out her site.

Hope D likes his card, I'm sure he will, he's a very creative guy and has great taste ~ LOL ~ he loves my Daughter and my Grandson!

Grandson's Birthday Card

More birthday's!!!  Here's the one I created for our Grandson who lives in Oceanside.  He'll be 19 on the 6th of January!  Where does the time go??

 I used Not Quite Navy CS for the card base.  I ran a piece of Crumb Cake through one of the new Textured Impressions Embossing Folders available in the new Occasions Mini Catalog that goes "live" today (pg. 11) Adorning Accents 125601. It comes with 3 folders, I used the one with the little heart design. I punched each corner with the Ticket Corner Punch and added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels that I had colored Black with a Sharpie. (Learned that little techinique on Patty Bennett's site .. so cool!)   I punched a scallop circle with the Scallop Circle Punch in the Not Quite Navy and added a Build a Brad with a little cupcake from the Itty Bitty Bits Stamp Set.  The inside I used my computer generated greeting and stamped a little tree with the heart in it from the Easy Events Stamp Set.  I used Stampin' Write Markers to color the stamp and left the greeting part off.
