Get Well Soon

This card is for my uncle who recently suffered some major head injuries from a fall. I decided to incorporate Beate's weekend sketch challange and the face from a swap I received at a regional event. I used Pick A Petal stamp set with River Rock and Bordering Blue Cardstock/Ink. Hopefully this will cheer him up a bit. In Joy!

Cute Baby Boy

These baby cards were made using the Cute As A Bug Stamp Set on a folded piece of Whisper White cardstock which was cut with a paper trimmer and punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch for the neck and leg holes. It was then layered on another piece of cardstock which was then cut 1/8" larger with the paper trimmer and punched with a 1 1/4" punch creating a mat around the entire outfit. The last step was mounting the outfit on a piece of cardstock 5.5 x 4.25. I used different combinations of River Rock, Soft Sky and Blue Bayou Cardstock for each card. The outfit was trimmed with Western Sky Designer Series Paper. This trimming for the sleeves was cut with the paper trimmer and the neck/leg holes were done using the Scallop & 1 3/8" Punches. I finished off the outfit with three brads for the snaps between the legs. I think they are just adorable and would even make great shower invitations. In Joy!

Happy Birthday Carrie!

I made this card for my Step-Father whose grand-daughter Carrie just turned 8. It gave me a chance to get out my new Fine Glitter and Felt Flowers from the new catty. What FUN! I used Wild Wasabi, Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie and River Rock Cardstock and Ink. I used Bud Basics, It's Your Birthday and a retired alphabet set. I ran into a problem finding a brad that looked right with these colors so I improvised. I used versamark and heat and stick powder to adhere the glitter to both the chipboard C and a light green brad. I really like the way it turned out and what girl doesn't like this much SPARKLE! In Joy!

Back to Stamping!

It took a while but after remodeling the stamp room we are back to stamping. For over a month we haven't been able to find a thing! We had an open house camp on Sunday and these are the projects using Happy Heart Day and Time Well Spent. In Joy!
