Baby Girl Card

Hello, today's project is a baby shower card I made this morning. Actually, my daughter needed a card at the last minute for a baby shower she was going to today. So I made two, one for her and one for me that I'm going to share here today.
Again, I used the Basket Weave embossing folder from the Sale-a-bration Blossoming Basket Bundle. The cardstock is Pink Pirouette, card base is Crumb Cake. 

I stamped the bunny from the A Good Day Stamp set. Then I ran it through the Big Shot with one of the square Stitched Framelits. I layered the bunny on a square piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. I adhered it on to the embossed cardstock with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I colored the bow with Pink Pirouette Stampin' Write Markers and embellished it with one Pearl Basic Jewels. I stamped "Congratulations" from the Petal Palette stamp set on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by.



Supplies:

  • Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder
  • Cardstocks - Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Crumb Cake

St. Patrick's Day Mini Treat Bag Tutorial

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Here's a quick project share using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. 


I made the treat bags and then ran two of them through the Big Shot using the Basket Weave and Quilt Top embossing folders.

I used the Pansy Punch to make the shamrocks, then adhered them to the layered circles and added the Clear Faceted Gems and Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the center of shamrocks.

I printed the "Happy St. Patrick's Day" from my MDS program (retired), but you can use the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

 It seems like I'm always late with these holiday projects, but this one can easily be altered into Easter mini treat bags.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Wildflower Wishes - Paper Pumpkin

Hello, todays' card share is from February Paper Pumpkin kit. It's so pretty. I whipped these three cards up in no time. I love these cards.



Paper Pumpkin is celebrating it's 5th anniversary in March! Subscribe by March 10th to get this month's special anniversary box including a FREE GIFT!







On a side note, I have started another quilt. I know, I know, I need to finish the other quilt I was working on a year or so ago, but I need to practice free-motion quilting first. Anyway, about the quilt I'm currently working on, I had bought the fabrics and templates over a year ago. I wanted to do the sew along, but last year got a little hectic for our family and I just couldn't get into any big projects. So, now I am sewing at my own pace. So far I have all the applique pieces traced and cut, now it's on to applique and cutting the borders and the rest of it. It's a Christmas quilt from Lori Holt's blog, Cozy Christmas. So I'll be sharing my adventures in quilting, or at least me appliqueing and putting blocks together. It's been quite awhile since I've done any kind of sewing. I'm excited! Yay!

Have a great weekend!

I made this card this morning with the A Good Day stamp set and Delightful Daisy DSP. I also used the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and Stitched Framelits Dies. I colored the details with the Subtles Stampin' Write Markers. I love the little tree image, and so quick to color.

Fall into Savings with Paper Pumpkin

Hi, Crafters! I thought I would catch up on my Paper Pumpkin kits I get in the mail. Here I have July's kit that I haven't had a chance to put together. There's four different cards, two of each design. Of course, you can alternate them to your own design with the materials or any extras you have.

Here are two cards from the Positively Picturesque kit from July.
Here a few of my alternate ideas:
This card I die-cut the scallop Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with the Layering Circles Framelits. I watercolored the background in Daffodil Delight before I stamped the tulips.
Here I stamped the tulips on the watercolor design already on the card base. Stamped the sentiment then added washi tape and wooden tulips already included in the kit. 
This one I used the Pretty Label punch and stamped the tulip and sentiment, added a Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I watercolored again on Whisper White cardstock and layered a 3 1/2" x 1" part of the envelope. Then layered on a Powder Pink cardstock and adhered to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

There are so many other possibilities with this kit and my samples are pretty easy and straight forward. New Subscribers get a 50% off introductory discount for one month. This is a great deal to try Paper Pumpkin. The kit will be delivered to your door, complete with everything to make fun, shareable cards and projects. 



Happy crafting!
