New Baby

My hubby has a new Great-Granddaughter.  Here's the little gift card I made to go with her package we sent this week.

I used Whisper White CS for the card base (3x3 card).  I ran a piece of Regal Rose CS through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder for the next layer and then added the little embelishement.  I cut a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper  (yeah, it's still available to order) with the Scallop Oval Punch and added the little onesie from the Baby Bundle Stamp Set onto Whisper White CS and colored with Watercolor Pencils and used the Blender Pen and punched with the Small Oval Punch.  I got to go to Kohl's and pick out outfits for a brand new baby girl, what fun that was!!!  So many cute "girlie" outfits to choose from, lots with kitties on them!!!! Yeah.......she lives in Arizona so won't get to see her for a while. (Darn!)

D's Birthday Card

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

The picture really doesn't do it justice, the colors look pinkish!  I used Crumb Cake DSP for the base of the card and added Core-d-nations Pool Party Card Stock and ran it through the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  The bottom was cut with Adorning Accents and Finishing Touches Edgelets.  The little x's are created using the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folders.  I used the sanding tool to sand the card and make the inside color show in the Pool Party Paper.  I squashed a bottle cap in the Big Shot and added the background and bee from the Collage Curious Stamp Set.  I added happy and day from stamps in the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.  The ribbon is Natural Trim Ribbon.

Hand delivered it to him yesterday and he LOVED it!  Happy Birthday D and hope you have many more!

Happy Valentine's Day 2013

Here are some of the creations I have made up for Valentine's Day this year.

Sorry the picture isn't that great. I did Hershey Candy Bars wrapped in More Amore Specialty DSP and added ribbon and hearts.  The Love in the top one is the single stamp Love Heart.  I added some Ribbon with 3 Rhinestones on one side and layered onto Black CS cut with the Embosslits Scalloped Heart of Hearts.  The middle one I used the Embosslit and Silver Glimmer Paper, then a Red Heart punched with the Framelit Hearts and the little love is from the Ciao, Baby! Stamp Set and punched with the little punch that matches.  I used Cherry Cobbler Polka Dot Ribbon on each end.  The one on the left I used the new Pink Pirouette Two-Tone Ribbon and the Happy Valentine Stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.  I colored Rhinestones with a Red Sharpie and added to each end (Punched out with Word Window Punch) that was mounted on Bashful Blue CS with the Modern Label Punch.  The M&M's were put into one of the 1"x8" Celephone Tubes and I added a heart to the top with That's The Ticket Valentine Stamp mounted on top with one of the new Large Rhinestones up in the left-hand corner.  The Red Heart was mounted on Silver Glimmer Paper punched with the Embosslit Scalloped Heart of Hearts.  I added some Pink Pirouette Ribbon and some had Riding Hood Red (not pictured) Taffeta Ribbon.

I card-scrapped this from Nicole Tugrul, she has awesome ideas.  Check this one out here

She has all the information on her blog and I have her link as one of my favorites now.  Can hardly wait to see what she creates next.  Love the new Hearts A Flutter Framelits and Honeycomb Embossing Folders used the Ciao, Baby Stamp Set.

Hello Kitty Thank You Card

Got the idea for this card from Connie Stewart at Simply Simple Stamping.  My niece got a new phone for Christmas and was texting me a thank you for the Christmas gift we had left at my Sister's for her.  So sweet, so I made this card for her. (Don't think she's been to my Sister's to get it yet, I didn't have her mailing address because they had just moved.)

I had to use the retired butterfly punch for the ribbon (luckily I found it in my spare room).  The center of the bow is a 3/4" Circle Punch and I added a Rhinestone.  The eyes are Basic Black CS punched with the 1/2" circle punch.  The nose is Daffodil Delight Yellow punched with the small oval punch and the whiskers I just hand drew.  I used the little Tag Punch for the hello was part of the little coo coo clock stamp in the Easy Events 2 of 2 stamp set.  I thought it was Connie's sight I found the card but when going back could only find the bag she made, pretty much the same recipe.  The inside of the card is computer generated and I added some butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.  I know she's going to be surprised and love getting mail at her Grandma's house.
