Welcome Baby Brynn

We went to visit our friends' new baby girl yesterday! Oh she's so sweet! So happy for them.

I made this card for them - I found this clear stamp from Studio G. It had a cute elephant and sentiment that said "be natural" which I found odd :). I used Versamagic chalk ink which does a good job on the cheaper clear stamps. Anyways, the sentiment is from PTI's Baby Button Bits. The set had rhinestones included too so I add them to the bottom border. The white border shape is Fiskar's Upper Crest punch.

My cards have been so simple lately - usually because I'm rushing to make a quick card before having to run out the door with it. I really would like to spend more time on each card!

Have a great day!

Happy Anniversary!

A Happy Anniversary card using this week's camp colors! I really like this combo because brown is one of my favorite colors! Plus that pop of red. The hearts are Studio Calico wood veneers. It looks like more mfgs are coming out with wood shapes which will be fun - especially using them with the mists that are so popular now! The sentiment is Hero Arts. A very simple and quick card to celebrate my anniversary. I wrapped the twine in the number of years we are celebrating our relationship. Thought that was a funny idea :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Home!

I'll be sending this card off to my sister who just moved to California ! A generous SC member was giving away some Studio Calico stamps and she graciously sent me this house one. Super cute. I heat embossed it with Mustard Zing. The hearts came from an older Hero Arts clear set. I used a Martha Steward grass border stamp and some letter stickers from American Crafts and Cosmo Cricket. I have to stop hording those stickers! :)

Summer Camp Week 2

I'm in camp right now :). Just participating in a fun summer online card camp. I made this card for week 2 color combo. I got this new Flower Text Hero Arts woodblock stamp. I heat embossed in white, colored in distress inks and cut each flower and leaf. I popped up the flowers and most leaves. I didn't have room for a sentiment, so I'll stamp something on the inside when I am ready to address the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
