Little Munchkin's Day


As I'm still going through the photos of cards I haven't posted I came across this one I made for my middle niece, Little Munchkin.  This was a very simple card using balloon punches and designer paper. I used a white gel pen to create the highlights on the balloons.  Little Munchkin loved it! Unfortunately, misplaced the sticky note that had my supply recipe.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Happy Birthday (I can't remember what set I used)
Paper: WW, Baja Breeze, Bermuda Bay, Strawberry Slush (I think), DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Balloon Punch, Baker's Twine, White Gel Pen, Sequins

Sympathy in Plum


I dug out a sheet of a long-retired SU designer paper pack. The colors are subtle, yet beautiful, and appropriate for a sympathy card. Pale Plum and Perfect Perfect Plum was one of my favorite color combos when I first started stamping. This combo was a frequent go-to when using 2 step stamps and I love how it looks on this flower. 

Recipe:
Stamps: Too Kind, Brighter Tomorrow - SU
Paper: WW, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Always Artichoke, DP
Ink: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Border punch, Dew Drops, MISTI

Look Who Turned 1


I'm finally getting around to the cards that I made months ago but never posted on the blog. I made this card for my niece Snuggle Bug's first birthday back in February, This was a fun card to make and I love the DP.  I die cut the #1 from silver glimmer paper. The balloons were punched and 2 of them I ran through embossing folders to get some fun textures.

Stamps: Number of Years - SU
Paper: Gumball Green, Pool Party, Pretty In Pink, Glimmer Paper, DP
Ink: Black Licorice Hybryid - MFT
Accessories: Dies, Punch, Embossing Folders, Baker's Twine

Forgotten Birthday Card



This card I made in February for a friend's birthday. I gave the card to her but I haven't posted it on the blog until now. Usually, when I make a card I write on a sticky all the stamps and supplies I used so I can post it later. My craft room wasn't very well organized at that time and now I can't find the sticky.  I'm glad I did take a picture of it before giving it away.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Echoes of Kindness - SU
Paper:  SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Spectrum Noir and Chameleon Alcohol markers, Ribbon, Nestabilities, Sequins

It's a Boy!



This card I made for the IT guy at work and his wife a few months ago. The background paper was from a scrapbooking kit I received several years ago.  I am not really a scrapbooker so I use the items in different cards. The baby carriage was stamped in Not Quite Navy ink and cut out with circle Nestabilities.

Stamps: Something for Baby, Baby Prints - SU
Paper: Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla, Marina Mist, Scrapbook DP
