I Dig You

Love working with the “I Dig You” stamp set! It’s a great set for designing cards and projects for boys!  I colored the image with a variety of different markers then I added a few brads to the wheels for a 3-D look. This is one of my favorite cards.

I Dig You Stamp Set

Forever with you

I just love the products in the new Stampin’ Up! caddy!!  This is one of the cards we put together at my June card class!  Love the color combo on this card!  The comfort cafe DSP is one of my favorite new products. The ladies were so excited about this card and the class! Of course the class focused on all new products from the caddy so why wouldn’t they be excited!?! 🙂

To make this card, start with a piece of Summer Starfruit cardstock for the base of your card. Stamp the string of flowers from the Forever with you stamp set on the top part of the summer starfruit cardstock using early espresso ink (see pic above). Secure a 5 1/4 x 2 inch piece of Comfort Cafe DSP to a 5 1/2 x 2 1/4 inch piece of early espresso cardstock and secure it to the bottom of your card front.  For the sentiment…color the different parts of the stamp using your markers:  early espresso, bravo burgundy and summer starfruit. Once it’s colored, stamp it on a piece of whisper white cardstock and punch it out with the 2 1/2 inch circle punch. Sponge the edges of the circle with a bit of early espresso ink. Punch a little hole in the top of the circle and add a bit of ribbon with one of the vintage trinket brads….secure to the center of your card with dimensionals. Simply adorable!
Supplies include:
Summer Starfruit and Early Espresso Cardstock 
Markers: Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit and Brave Burgundy
Forever with You Stamp Set
2 1/2 in circle punch

We also used up some of my favorite crochet trim (which is retired now) however, the Victoria Crochet Trim is still available and looks awesome on this card as well 🙂

Wedding Invitation "With Love"

My daughter and I have been busy making her wedding invitations!  This invitation turned out so gorgeous!  I just love the silver, blue and lavender together!  The white organza ribbon really gives this invitation a soft elegant touch!  We printed all of the wedding information off of my computer on whisper white cardstock…these details are on the inside of this card!  She has received so many compliments on her invitations! We even embossed the envelopes with the elegant bouquet embossing folder (which serves as the background flowers on this card).

Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and Bashful Blue Cardstock
Silver Glitter Paper
Boho Blossom Punch
