Days Are Brighter

This card is for Jeanie's "That's Krafty Thursday" challenge.  I love Crumb Cake (kraft) and red together and I think the Early Espresso adds to the color combo.  I used the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder (SU) on the Crumb Cake panel, the DSP is from Love Letter collection (SU). Card base is Very Vanilla  CS with a mat of Early Espesso CS and then the embossed panel. I used the Scalloped  Trim border punch (SU) on the mat under the DSP. The image is a $1 stamp from JoAnn's stamped in Riding Hood Red ink on Very Vanilla CS.  The ribbon is also Riding Hood Red (retired) from SU. I think that covers it all. Thanks for stopping by.  Comments are appreciated.

God's Beauty

I saw several cards with the pink & yellow combo and had to give it a try. The stamp set I used is an older set from SU called God's Beauty. I stamped the flower in Pretty in Pink and the leaves in Pear Pizzaz. The flowers are cut out and mounted with dimensionals. I also inked around the image with a sponge and Pear Pizzaz ink. I sewed around the image panel and adhered some Metallic Dots from JoAnn's in the corners. The heart paper is some older DSP from my stash.  The card base is Pretty in Pink CS, then a panel of Barely Banana CS, and Whisper White CS. The border punch is by Martha Stewart.

Birthday Balloons

Another birthday card for one of my granddaughters.  We have 4 birthdays next week, 2 great-granddaughters, 1 granddaughter, and 1 daughter (Jan. 10, 11, 14, & 16th). Then a son's BD on the 29th.
O.K. this card is for one of the great-granddaughters. Jolinne (from My Favorite Things stamps) kind of favors my GD.  This card is also for Jeanie's "That's Krafty Thursday".  The base is Crumb Cake (Kraft) by SU, pink CS is by DCWV and the patterened paper is some older Hot Off The Press paper.  I stamped the balloons on the DSP and cut them out and adhered them with some dimensionals after cutting the image out with an oval nestie. I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and then mounted it on a large scalloped oval nestie which is adhered with dimensionals.  The pink ribbon is by Offray.
Two more cards to go. 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

Make A Wish

This is the card I made for my great-granddaughter's 2nd BD next week. She is so sweet, can't believe she is already turning 2 (that is why I put 2 candles on the cupcake).  I used Whisper White, Pretty in Pink & Soft Suede CS and ink (SU).  I used an EK Success punch for the border strip behind the image panel and used the little hole punchouts for sprinkles on the icing.  The stamp set is Big Bold Birthday.  (SU). I stamped the cup cake pieces, cut them out and mounted them with dimensionals on the panel cut with a Nestability scalloped rectangle, which I inked with Pretty in Pink before removing from the die.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
