A Little Something for Baby Girl


As I am going through pictures of cards I made I found this one that hasn't been posted yet.  This is a card I made earlier this year for a baby shower.  This cute card was so quick and easy it is my on my need-to-make-a-card-fast list.  I used a coordinating die from the SU Something for Baby set and used the negative over DP.  I attached a Prima flower with a gold brad and the card was done and then mounted it on coordinating card stock and the card was done.

Happy Birthday with a Cherry on Top



Well the cherry is not exactly on top as the title suggest, but it is still a birthday card.  When I saw this card on Pinterest I just knew I needed it for my birthday card stash.  I changed it a little by using the cherry in the stamp set instead of the bow, and I used a different border punch.

Paper:  WW, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler

Heartfelt Sympathies





I made these cards a couple of months ago.  A co-worker had a death in the family and everyone in the office signed the card.  I used my MISTI tool to do the shadow technique.  The MISTI made it so simple that I could easily make a similar card using different colors.

You'll be Tea-fully Missed


This card was made for a co-worker who left our office to move across the country.  She loves tea, so when I saw this card on Pinterest I just knew that the design would be perfect for her.  I used different colors in my card and a sentiment that expresses that she will be missed by all of us in the office.

There's Always Time for Tea


It seems weird for coffee freak like myself to create a tea-themed card.  While coffee is my number 1 choice of starter fluid in the morning, I do enjoy a hot cup of tea in the evening.  After all, coffee and tea are caffeinated cousins and can be enjoyed together.

The idea for this card is from the sketch challenge at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.  All caffeinated drink themed creations are welcome.  I added a little sparkle to this card by spraying the embossed layer with Glimmer Mist and went over the words in the cup with a Gelly Roll pen.  I coated the tea tag with Wink of Stella.  Unfortunately the sparkle touches do not show up well in the photo.
