Baby Shower

Hello Everyone!  I promised a friend of mine that I would post a picture of the baby shower invitation that I made for our first grandbaby!  He's due in November and I can't wait to be a grandma! 
The colors I used are bashful blue and soft suede.  The little giraffe is from the Wild About You stamp set from Stampin Up!  Inside is all the shower information. 
This post is for you Darla!

Birthdays Byte

Hello Everyone!  This card is for my husband's birthday.  I really like the way it turned out.  Sometimes it's difficult to know when to stop with a masculine card.  I didn't want to make it too "cute".  So, in this case, less is more.  I stamped the images in Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers.  I love the blending that happens with these markers.  To make it look as if the computer, mug and mouse were sitting on a desk top, I lightly drew in lines with a crumb cake marker and ruler along the bottom of the card.  I think it gives just the right effect.  The mug and mouse are up on pop dots.  The stamp set used is Tech Talk from Gina K.

Hangin' With Friends

Hello Everyone!  Today's card was inspired by a funny thing that happened to me over the weekend.  We had our next door neighbors over for an evening and when they were leaving, they spotted a bat clinging to the bricks on the wall of our front porch!!!  YIKES!  So, in jest, I made this card to send them.  I computer generated a sentiment inside the card that says "hanging out with you!"  I think they'll get a kick out of it.  I used the Stampin Up set Out on a Limb for the branches and bats.  I masked a circle punch out for the moon, outlined it with a glue pen, and sprinkled yellow glitter to make the moon really shine.  Thanks for stopping by!

Soft Sunflower

Hello Everyone!  This card is a variation of one I created for a card class this month.  This uses the fabulous Sunflower background stamp from Stampin Up.  I inked it up in So Saffron  and stamped it onto white cardstock, then ran it through the Cuttlebug using the a dotted swiss embossing folder.  The ribbon is some that I've had on hand.  It goes so well with the Chocolate Chip cardstock used for a frame around the main panel.  I tied a gold flower charm and a tiny tag punch, used for the sentiment, into the knot of the bow.  This is one of those cards that could be used for any occasion.
