Happy Anniversary for The Flower Challenge

Hello friends.  I am sharing a card I made for a couple at church using my new stamps and dies, so I am linking it up at The Flower Challenge #29 - Use your latest Stamps or Dies.
The flowers are from Sunny Studio Everything's Rosy.  I stamped them with 3 shades of blue and the leaves with 3 shades of green.  I then die cut them with the matching dies.  The flowers are mounted with foam tape and the leaves are just glued down.  The die cut panel is made with Sunny Studio Frilly Frames-Lattice.  The sentiment is a Verve stamp and I punched it with a SU punch and mounted it with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look.  I appreciate it when you take the time to leave me a comment.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

Happy 1st Birthday

Happy Valentine's Day and happy Thursday.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time it is "Anything Goes" as long as it is for a birthday.



My card is for a sweet little one at church who happens to be turning 1 year old today, Valentine's Day.  The cute little face on this Whimsey Stamps digital image (Fistful of Flowers) reminds me of her.  I colored her pants with SU Balmy Blue lt. & dark Blends and the rest with Copics.  I added some clouds with a Taylored Expressions Cloud Border die and lt. blue ink.  The pink pattern paper is from DCWV Basics & Brights 8x8 pad.  The SU Balmy Blue scallop mat is cut with MFT Blueprints 20 die.

I hope you will check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates at Seize the Birthday and hope to see your cards in our gallery.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Your comments are greatly appreciated.
Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

Thank You

A friend requested several assorted themed cards and this is one of the cards I am making for her.
The flowers are from an older SU set, Vintage Vogue, stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I added white enamel dots to the center of the flowers.  The leaves are from Papertrey Ink Gran's Garden set stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  The DSP is Blushing Bride from the Subtles 6x6 collection and is matted with Blushing Bride card.  The sentiment is from SU Southern Serenade stamped on an MFT doily die.

Seize the Birthday - Black and White

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  We have a new challenge for you over at Seize the Birthday and this time the "Toppings" option is to use black and white only.  Remember it is an option and the only requirement is that it be a birthday project.
I stamped the floral image from SU Southern Serenade in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and had to resist coloring it, but I think it looks great with the b/w theme.  I also added some pearls to the flower centers.  The sentiment and banner die cut are from a Hero Arts set.  I fussy cut the black mat and then mounted it with foam tape.  The pattern papers are from First Edition Black Out 12x12 pad, and matted with black.  

Remember to check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates and our party guest Julie,  over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope to see you in our gallery.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Anniversary

This is an anniversary card I made for a sweet couple at church.  I just found out they have been married for 67 years, although I didn't know it at the time I made the card or I could have added the numbers.
I used SU Petal Palette and the matching dies  for the flowers and colored them with alcohol markers.  The sentiment is a Stampabilities stamp from Hobby Lobby.  The opening was cut with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Ovals and I stamped the sentiment in the opening.  The frame was made with MFT Natural CS, the same die and a larger die from the same set.  The pink paper is from a Recollections pad and I added 3 glitter dots for a little bling.  I also added clear Wink of Stella to the flowers.

I am linking my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Another Baby Card

I have another baby card to share today.  My daughter is going to a baby shower and asked me to make a card for her, of course I was happy to do it.
The papers are from Authentique 6x6 Cuddle Boy pad.  The image and sentiment are from Sugar Pea Designs Bundle of Joy.  I colored the image with Copics and fussy cut it out and mounted it with foam tape.  The sentiment is cut with an MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags die and mounted with foam tape.

I am linking this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Have a Heart.  The image does have a heart and who doesn't love new babies.  They fill our hearts with love.
Also linking to Sugar Pea Designs challenge. I have a little tan on the hat and different shades of blue, so I hope this qualfies.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

Welcome Little One

Hello friends.  I have a baby card to share today.  This one is for the daughter of a friend at church.  I am also making a mini album and will share photos of it later,  It is not quite finished, but I will share the cover which matches the card.
The image is a digital image "Tex", from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I made it smaller for the card and larger for the mini album cover.  I colored both images with Copics and Promarkers.  The die cut sentiment is Welcome, Little One by Simon Says Stamp.  I like how it has the shadow die cut with it.  The papers are from my stash of baby papers. :)  I matted them with MFT Blue Breeze cardstock, which is a perfect match for the pattern papers.

Here is the cover of the mini album.  More photos to come.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Your comments are always appreciated.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
