baby boy bling

My wonderful friend had a baby boy back in May and of course that is cause for celebration. I admit I had picked out the main focal point for the card months in advance. Here’s why… Could you have passed up that soother? I knew it would be perfect, and it was! (I should have…

new baby card trio

I made a few cards to congratulate new parents. They turned out kinda cute so I wanted to share them with you. I didn’t realise how crooked this was… Cute and simple, like a baby 😀 The pink and blue ones are still available here. Thanks for stopping by!

Freshly Made Sketches #283

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #283: Everyone else seemed to have a die that made that exact wave shape, but I don’t so I had to improvise: I made another Mother’s Day card 😀 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

CASology #244 – strong

NOTE: A big thanks to Rachel for the honourable mention last week for CASology #243 – icing! ❤ The cue card for  CASology #244 is strong: I am on a Mother’s Day card kick right now, and this cue card is a great prompt for one of those! Just one spritz of spray ink, one…

Stamp Ink Paper #94 – tic tac toe

It’s my favourite type of challenge for Stamp Ink Paper #94: I chose the bottom row (die cut, light blue and bird):  I stenciled the bird with some light blue ink (insert two birds with one stone joke here) and made some die cuts for the stamped sentiment. I tried to make the leaves a bit…

new baby boy greeting card

Hello 🙂 My neighbours recently had a baby boy and I wanted to make them a card to celebrate their first child: I went with traditional blue and kept the embellishments simple. I could have added something more, but I couldn’t find anything suitable in my stash so I left it as it was. I…

Color Throwdown #433

It’s cornflower blue, green and white for Color Throwdown #433: Luckily, I had just picked up some blue paper! I die cut and then embossed the front panel. There is also a white embossed panel at the very back there, with the edges inked. I had some Hampton Art ink that matched the blue pretty…

Freshly Made Sketches #278

It’s a fun sketch this week for Freshly Made Sketches #278: Here is my card: I have some peach geometric paper behind the embossed blue panel. The enamel dots are also peach, and the brad attaching the scissors is a warm brass colour to play off the peach. I had been trying to figure out…

CAS(E) This Sketch #211

Here is this week’s sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch: I am not a floral person, but I still loved the look of the reaching stems topped with flowers. So… Balloons! I used complimentary orange and blue, and kept the ink simple with just black. The die cut frame is inlaid back in the paper around…

S.I.P. #88 -anything but a card

This week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge is a bit of a shake up: I went with a tag: The background is stenciled in yellow ink. I went with other bright colours (almost keeping them all primary). I dig the HOORAY die cut letters filled in with other colours 🙂 This tag is so cheery! As a…
