Vintage Well Wishes


A friend was in the hospital recently undergoing a painful procedure.  To cheer her up, I made a card with an Autumn themed design.  I used one of the dies from the SU Leaflets Framelits set and sponged it with ink in Fall colors.  I tilted the background papers to give the card a fun effect.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Vintage Leaves, Thoughts and Prayers - SU
Paper:  WWChocolate Chip, Really Rust, More Mustard, DP
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, True Thyme
Accessories:  Leaflets Framelits, Nestabilities, Sponges, Tear Drops, Glimmer Mist

Work Baby Shower


Last week we had a baby shower at work for 2 ladies who are both due soon.  This card is for one of the ladies who shared that she is having a girl.  The card I posted last week was for the other lady.

This quick and simple card uses new and old SU supplies.  The DP is from one of the very first packages I purchased from SU almost 9 years ago.  The embossing folders and stamps are more recent.  Like many crafters, I keep adding to new supplies my horde before I  use up the old.  However, I recently made a promise to myself not to buy any more DP until I used up the paper that I have had in my stash from 5 years or more.  

Recipe:
Stamps:  Something for Baby, Teeny Tiny Wishes - SU
Paper:  WW, Pretty In Pink, Wild Wasabi, DP
Ink:  Pretty In Pink, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories:  Flower Punch, Circle Punch, Embossing Folders, Stick on Gems

Baby Blocks


This card was made for a co-worker who is due to have her first child soon.  She and her husband are waiting until the baby is born to know whether they have a girl or a boy.  That makes things a little challenging for me to make a card.  I chose a DP that had a rainbow of colors and went from there.  The layout for the blocks was CASEd from this card.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Sophisticated Serifs - SU
Paper:  Marina Mist, Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, DP
Ink:  WW Craft Ink
Accessories:  White embossing powder, Heat Tool, Square punch, Postage stamp punch, Gems, Embossing folder
