Baby Congrats

Hi Everyone!

I have a sweet post today; one in which I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried a collage style card.
 I know when I start back to work next month, there will be several teachers who will be expecting, so I decided to build my stash of baby cards.

My bear was colored with Copics; this sweetie is from the Valentine Critters Stamp Set, but does great double duty as a baby card image. I fussy cut the bear out; to help the bear stand out more, I mounted the bear image on a bear shaped mat that I fussy cut out, then layered it on a tag die cut (Kaiser Craft), floral die cut (Glitz Designs), and cheese cloth.  I die cut two leaves using the Thankful Blooms Die Set; I cut them from white card stock and colored them with Copics, mimicking the leaves in the floral die cut.
The base of the card was stamped with the Delightfully Delicate Background Stamp.  I added a scalloped edge using the Scallop Border Dies.  Of course, there is nothing like a seam binding bow to finish off what turned out to be a very girly baby card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today; have a blessed week!

the greatest gift

Hello!  Today I'm sharing another Christmas in July card.  This card uses three new Christmas sets called Christmas Morn, Jesus is Born, and Christmas Innies.  They are wonderful sets for jump-starting your holiday card making.

A circle punch was used to create an opening in the card front in which the popped up sentiment shows through.  An additional sentiment was also stamped on the inside.

I hope this inspires you to get some Christmas cards ready.  Have a great Monday!

Faith. Hope. Love.

Good morning!

Jessica here this morning popping in to share a card that I made that uses several Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps make a 'shabby chic'  love themed card.  I love the sunflowers from the Prim Blessings stamp set and paired them with the Delightfully Delicate Background as well some dots from the Lots of Spots stamp set.

First, I stamped the sunflower images in Versamark ink and white embossed them.  Then, using Distress Markers, I watercolored them in and let it dry.  Then, using some light inks, I stamped the backgrounds not worrying if they got on the sunflowers since I used such light inks.

Such a fun card - but one that I had a hard time getting the correct colors to show through on the camera for you... sorry about that!

Have an enjoyable day filled with faith, hope and love!

You're How Old

Hi there is Ceal here to share a card using the Birthday Word Art set.  This is such a fun set to ink up. I used the Birthday Bash die set to make my balloons and ran them thru different embossing folders. For my background I took the number image and stamped it three times but not reining to get the ombre effect.  last I tied some head around them for the string.
