I used the new hostess set called Cute by the Inch for the little pull-out. I put a piece of ribbon on the back of the little square to help pull it out. I frayed the ribbon by pulling on a piece of the thread until I liked the amount that raveled.
The large flower is made from a bigz die called daisies #2. A cuttlebug border embossing folder was used to mimic the punched scallop border. The sentiment on the flower was stamped using the Stem Sayings stamp set. A new Stampin Up rhinestone and some sponging on the flower petals finishes this one off. Thanks for stopping by today.

The base of the card is white. I punched 2 holes with a 1 1/4" circle punch first. The next layer is crumb cake. I stamped the Woodgrain background stamp in Soft Suede ink, placed this layer onto the white base and lined it up to exactly where I wanted it. Next I traced the two holes that I made in the white base onto the crumb cake layer and punched them out. I put the two owls together using Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink (and dsp), Not Quite Navy (and dsp), Baja Breeze, black and white. The ribbon was added and the owls glued into the inside so that they peeked through the holes. Isn't this hilarious? It could be used as an anniversary card or a Valentine's Day greeting, or I suppose whenever a lovey-dovey card is needed.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Everyone. I made this cute card today for our son and daughter-in-law. It's hard to believe, but they're celebrating their 4th wedding anniversary.
I used a new Stampin' Up! set for this one called Aviary. The stamps are just the cutest! The colors for this card are some new In-Colors: Peach Parfait, Concord Crush, Whisper White and Peach Parfait designer paper. I tied a white taffeta ribbon at the bottom of the cage for a little dimension. Clean and simple. Thanks for stopping by.

I can't believe that it's been since April that I last posted! I know it's been a long time, but our daughter's wedding took up most of my time. She's finally married and the wedding was beautiful. We had such a gorgeous day and the bride and groom are so very happy. It seems so long since I've been in my stamping room. It felt so good to get my fingers dirty again!
This card is for a friend of mine who just shot a hole in 1! For the sun, I punched a 1 1/4" circle and sponged daffodil delight ink in the negative hole created by the punch. Then I took the positive circle, and covered my sun so that when I did the sky, it wouldn't get colored with blue. I masked off a horizon and sponged in the clouds, then masked off the sky and brayered in the grass (the putting green). I stamped little bits of grass from the Watercolor Minis stamp set (retired). The hole cup is an oval and the ball is 3/4" circle punch that I ran through a cuttlebug folder (dotted swiss). I used the de-bossed side that I thought looked like the dimples on a golf ball. For the flag, I snipped real red cardstock with my scissors and wrote in the lucky 13 (number of the hole on the course) and dotted a white border with my gel pen. I can't wait to mail this off.
It 's good to be back. Thanks for your patience and for stopping by today.
