Unfrogettable Birthday

I was so disappointed to see the unfrogettable set on the retired list. This one will definitely stay in our collection. I made this birthday card for my nephew Brett. This was my first attempt at a pop up card so this set just seemed like the right one to use. The card base is bashful blue layered with wild wasabi and jersey shore dsp. I paper pieced the frogs with wild wasabi from the hostess prints pack of dsp paper. How cute are they? I then added a little hodge podge, ribbon, dazzling diamonds (dragon flies) and moving eyes (frogs) to finish it off. In Joy!

Horsin' Around

If you didn't know already, I am a horse lover and I just love this stamp from Serendipity. I brought it out to make this birthday card for my niece Erica who also loves horses. The base is choc chip layered with western sky dsp from Stampin UP! I also brought out my nestabilities, which I admittedly don't use often enough, to cut and emboss the very vanilla cardstock. I am still amazed at how awesome these dies are. Add a splash of red, some hodge podge and stitched ribbon and it's all done. In Joy!

Beautiful Wedding

My sister made this beautiful wedding card for the daughter of a friend. The silhouette from She's All That is stamped on choc chip paper with white craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment from Together Forever set is stamped with a silver Encore pad on choc chip and punched with the designer label punch. The bashful blue dsp is from the hostess prints pack. She finished it off with choc chip satin ribbon and the pretties kit. I don't know about you but I would have LOVED to get this card on my wedding day. In Joy!
