Father's Day card idea...

Hi All! I am working outside of my home this week, so I won't be posting everyday. Here is an awesome patriotic Father's Day card that my Card Club will be making in May. A lot of our dad's/grandfathers are veterans, so I thought this was a fun idea to pay tribute. I used Real Red, Brilliant Blue, and Whisper White cs and inks. I used the 2 star punches, ticket corner punch, "Dotted Lines" jumbo wheel, and some silver cord and brads on this card to make it pop. The sentiment is from the "All Holidays" set. This is a must have set! I hope you like the card! Thanks to all the vets out there!

More simple baby cards...

Here are two really simple but cute baby cards! Aren't "Simply Scrappin'" Kits great? All I added was a brad and some ribbon and Voila! I also loved the textured paper that comes in the kits. Try one!

Brand New Baby cards...

Here are two new cards from the Special Delivery Boy and Girl Simply Scrappin' Kit. The only embellishments that I added that weren't from the kit were the brads. How easy is that! This is a great demo to show at your workshops to guests who think that they don't have enough time to make hand-made cards. I have lots of babies in my life due to arrive in the fall, so I better make more of these. Enjoy!

I'm getting back to business!

Hi All! Soryy I have been away from blogging for the last couple of weeks. My son is no longer napping (a moment of silence please) and that was my prime blogging and stamping time. Now I have to find time again and re-work my schedule! Ahhhh! Please send me comments if you Moms out there have any tips. I decided that now that I am time disadvantaged, I am going to rely on some good ole' stand by's for making cute, easy, and quick cards. SU's "Simply Scrappin' Kits." I chose to start with "Special Delivery" boy and girl sets. I am constantly in need of baby and toddler cards. I will post a few cards from this set for the next few days. Enjoy!
My fist two cards were super quick and super cute! Just use the self-adhesives, card stock, and designer paper that comes in your kit. You can always add a few embellishments here and there, but sometimes you won't even need any! Simple is beautiful!

A little time off....

Hi All! I have been sooooo busy getting ready for a mini-vacation to my parents this week that I have neglected the blogging world. I will be gone next week and I won't be posting anything new. Check back in a week for some really cool new stuff! Thanks for checking in!

Tart & Tangy for Mom!

I have a few workshops coming up that will feature some Mother's Day cards. I love using the new "Tart & Tangy" set from the Occasions Mini-Catalog. I chose to use Old Olive, Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Pumpkin Pie inks and cs. I also used the Print pattern background, scallop scissors, grosgrain ribbon, black brads, and the circle punches. The adorable sentiments are from "Holiday Blitz," "everyday flexible phrases," and "Sweet Shapes." Have a great day and I'll post more next week! We're off for the weekend!

One of A Kind!

I am sooo excited that I finally got to play with my Boho Blossoms punch and "One Of A Kind" set. And my Berry Bliss dsp! Woo Who! I used Close to Cocoa, Pretty In Pink, Purely Pomegranate, and Whisper White inks and cs. I also added some pink grosgrain ribbon to make this simple and fun card. Is it me, or are pink and brown the cutest colors together?

The cutest baby card EVER!

Hi All! Sorry that I haven't blogged in awhile, but we have been running around like crazy this week! Ahhh! I just got back from a meeting with my AWESOME Wee Inkers SU! group and I took a photo of this card and I loved it! Lauren Meader, and amazing paper crafter, has a tutorial that you can link onto to get the directions. This is my 1st version, so it is not without flaws by any means. I used Whisper White and Regal Rose, along with my favorite stamp set, "Priceless." Anyone who receives a baby card like this will truly love it! Here is the link for directions: http://laurenm.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2008/02/05/create-your-own-onesie-card-tutorial-and-important-note-please-read/
