The special card from Mom and Dad

April 2, 2009

The flower is made of paper raffia on a flower loom — I saw a demo of the little plastic loom several weeks ago on MS…(I will add the link later).  I ordered the looms and bought the raffia at Michaels and voila…..a beautiful spring flower.  I will add a tutorial in the near future.

You will recognize the SU carousel notes.  I stamped the green cardstock with stazon white scroll design from Basic Grey.  Added a nestability cut scallop circle from new MM Chloes Closet dp;  layered MM paper on the bird and branch from the new SU chipboard series……the inside of the card used 2 of the SU Heard from the Heart and added another bird.  The great ribbon is from MM also.

It’s your birthday and I will cry if I want too

How did my daughter Stephanie, ever become 21?  Here’s the card from her sisters and the puppies!  (One of which is hers and decided to live with us!)

 

I made it on Monday night at my good friend and SU demo’s house during a stamp til you cramp party — SU whisper white base; SU dp retired; SU ribbon, SU stamp set  Humor in High Heels.  I stamped the image on leftover designer set paper and cut out the shoes… and used markers.  Use Kaiser Craft pearls over the bow image…..and tah dah@

Julianna is eight

March 15, 2009

Julianna is eight and a special card is needed for my god daughter {whose Mom is my SU enabler!  — I mean demo}.  So I pondered all of my stamps and paper; and came up with this…….

Stamped Organic Outline on SUdp — I loved this set from moment one and then struggled to use it…..today I figured it out…..it should be a layer.   Cut the image out……..layer on a nestability circle of salebration dp from SU, then 2 rectangles for the background……the ribbon is also from the salebration bundle,  wrapped across the top of the card, then tied a bow catching the leaf stem 

Stamped and embossed a butterfly from Winged Things and colored with Copics, cut out the butterfly folded it slightly and raised the right side with a dimensional

Accented the wings with hero arts gemstones and stamped and cut the berries from Organic Outline on a scrap of DP and scattered them on the card

Stamped and embossed Happy Birthday from Cornish Heritage Farms “Tag you’re it”

Julianna — have a Happy Dayjuliannas-birthday-card
