Here's the second card I made. The base is Textured Baja Breeze cardstock. I'm trying to use up some of my 'in colour' stuff because it's retiring the end of next month. I also used Kiwi Kiss, Barely Banana and Whisper White CS.
The Big Shot Daisies #2 is such a pretty die, I don't know why I didn't order it sooner! The other die I used is the Swirly Decorative Strip die. The centres of the flowers are sponged with Barely Banana ink and a Large half back pearl is in the centre. I also used some Kiwi Kiss ink.
I hope you like my cards

Birthday Cards

Hi there! Sorry I didn't post last week - time just flew by. So today, I'll post two cards!
I actually have three birthday cards to make this month and here are two of them.
This first one is done with Night of Navy, Pink Pirouette, and Vellum cardstocks. The stamp sets are Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Fifth Avenue Floral A Little Birthday Cheer and Beautiful Borders. I used Night of Navy ink and Versamark with clear embossing. Half back pearls from the Pretties Kit and in the centre of the flowers. I also used the Eyelet Border punch.

I made another 4"X4" Scrapbook and I think this one is even cuter than the first one. I used Parisian Breeze Specialty paper and lots of Punches!! Here's some pics of some of the pages too.

This is a mini 4" X 4" Photo album I've done as a Grad gift. You can do one too if you want. I'm offering a class June 13 at 1:00 at the church. If you are interested contact me and I will give you the details. The photos here show the front (which may look different for everyone as you make your own embellishments) and a sample of the inside pages. There are 12 pages as well as a front and back cover.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Mother's Day!

A Rose for Mom

This is my mother's day card for my Mom. I'm going to get it sent away asap. The base is Certainly Celery and it's texture with the small dots Texturz Plate. The Top Note shape is one of the papers in a Taste of Textiles - isn't it beautiful? The sentiment is stamped on a scallop oval of the same paper as the top note so it's hard to see. The rose from Fifth Avenue Floral is embossed with white embossing powder and then watercoloured - it's a really neat technique. If you can believe it I used Cameo Coral to paint the rose! The sentiment is stamped in Regal Rose and I think it matches. The Certainly Celery leaves were made with the SU Sizzlet Little Leaves. The ribbon is from Sale A Bration but you could easily use the 5/8" Green Grosgrain ribbon instead. I hope my Mom likes this card!

Here's a birthday card I did for my minister. She loves to garden so I had to make sure there was some reference to that on the card. I used the Big Shot and Embosslits for the flowers, Rhinstone brads, Little Leaves sizzlet, Sincere Salutations Stamp set, Blooms and Bulbs wheel, Watercolour vine wheel, scallop oval punch, large oval punch, Coluzzle, Baja Breeze textured cardstock & ink and Cameo coral cardstock & ink. I embossed the seed pkgs with white and then sponged the two inks over top. The inside of the card is a 7 flower pop up but I didn't take a picture of it! D'oh! It looked really neat, I'll have to do another one.
