All Dressed Up

Soooo excited to share this card! I love it!

I took the top of the onesie cards and added to the bottom basically. Made this for my niece who is getting baptized later this week, but of course I had to make one for her little sister too, so I made a cute little blue card for her. Love how many things you could use this for: blessings/christenings, brides, baptisms, etc. So fun and pretty!

Dressed in white Hair clips

Had fun making these for my niece who is getting baptized this weekend. Wish I could be there.

Stamp club

This was my second month as demonstrator for our stamp club. I have decided that most month's we will do: 1 card, 1 3-D project, and since I don't really have any scrapbookers, 1 challenge. Hopefully this will help some of them improve in skill and time in stamping cards. So this is what we did last week:



I offered it in a couple of colors, so here is another one that was made that night in pink.

Challenge: I used a sketch challenge from splitcoast this time.

Here was my example of the challenge:

And here were a couple of the results:

I'm trying to help them to use more of the product they buy at home. I pulled out a lot of paper and told them they could use any of my stamps and ink. I think it will get more fun and easier the more challenges we do. I hope...lol

Cookie Cakes

Made a cookie cake for my daughter's student teacher last week. I decorated the top of a pizza box to take it in and it turned out cute. :)

Family Trees

One more I forgot to show you I made a couple weeks ago. I did the leaves with pearl-ex pwdr. I wish S.U. still sold this, although I still have plenty from when they did. If you look, you can see the way the colors look different at different angels and see the shine of the pwdr. Kinda a fun card.

Design Paper

I love how design paper makes it so fast to whip cards out. I did this one this am for a great girl who's going to make a great mom!

Simple Flowers

Found these cute little dollar acrylic stamps at a local craft store. They reminded me of a set from sell-a-brations and I was anxious to play. I was disappointed that they didn't stamp more clearly though. Still turned out pretty cute and was a way fast card! (BTW, Why do I love square cards?!) And my color inspiration: the ribbon. :)
