Another Birthday Tag

Another tag I made for my girlfriend's birthday. I used the Build a Blossom stamp set and Blossom Petals punch.
I also used some Moonlight Smooch on the edge of the tag and on the center piece of the flower and Illuminate Top Coat to add some shimmer to the solid petals.

Hope you had a great 3 day weekend!

Happy Birthday Emily

My cousin's daughter's birthday is tomorrow. I made her this money holder card. I used the (retired) Ice Cream Parlor set and the Alphabet Simple Letters die.
Here's the inside with the pocket for the money.

Happy Birthday Emily!

Flower Garden Heartfelt Thanks

I finally got around to using the new Flower Garden embossing folder from the Summer Mini catalog. I sponged some ink over it to give it more definition.
I also used the Log Cabin shimmer mist on the card base to give it a little sparkle and texture.

Have a great day!

Sunflower Note

I really like the "just a little note" sentiment. It makes me want to send more cards "just because".
I used the markers to color on the stamp and it came out kind of blotchy, but I kind of like how it turned out, makes the image seem more watercolor-ish without me actually having to use watercolors!

Vintage Butterfly Tag

As promised, here's another tag for my friend's birthday. I used the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz for the first time to add some dimension to the background. I also used pearls for embellishment.
I distressed the edges of the flowers and of the sentiment as well.

I like how this tag came out. I'm looking forward to making some more of these.

Cupcake Birthday Tags

There's lots of birthdays this month, so I decided to try my hand at tags since I know I'll be giving these people gifts. These are the tags for some of the kids' birthdays. I used the Create a Cupcake punch and matching stamp set.

On the reverse side I put letter of their first names using the Serif Essentials alphabet dies.
Stay tuned for more tags.

just a little note

I've seen some of these "minimalist" cards around and thought I'd try my hand at them. If you know me, you know I tend to go for more plain and simple things. I'm on the fence about if I like how the cards turned out. But I've seen some really great white on white cards and tone on tone, so maybe I just need to find the right balance.
Here's a close up so you can see more details.

Each of the stamped images below are cut out into circles and attached on to the card base, as well as the sentiment.

Hopefully I'll get back to posting more regularly. I've been having some problems with getting my posts up on blogger. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!

This is the card I made for mother's day. I used the Paisley Prints DSP with an antique brad for embellishment.

Hope you're all having a wonderful day!
