New Baby Boy Arrival

I made this Baby Boy card for a new arrival at work. I love the Bundle of Joy stamp set! I also like the Bundle of Love set (which I don't have). Is that too much of a good thing? Also, my newest discovery is that Chocolate Chip goes with everything, and it has become a staple in my paper crafting wardrobe.
SS: Bundle of Joy, Background Basics, Big Deal Alphabet, Warmest Regards
CS: Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Au Chocolat Designer Paper
Ink: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip
Other: Neutrals and Rich Regals Buttons, Aqua Painters with Earth Elements Watercolor Wonder crayons.

Get Well Bee Card

I have been commissioned to make some Get Well cards recently. Usually, this is not my forte, and I have to admit, I have an overwhelming number of feminie stamp sets. So, when it came to making a card that was not plastered with flowers, etc, I found it difficult. I have made this simple card with the Farm Fever set, and NO pink and purple. Hope it works.


SS: Farm Fever
CS: Marigold Morning, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Summer Sun Stampin' Write Marker
Other: 1/16" Circle and 1/8" Circle Punches, Sponge Daubers, Making Memories Self-Adhesive Ribbon

So here, we have lots of new things going on. First, I have used the Doodle This stamp set, which was actually in the Spring Mini Catalogue, but miraculously made its way to the main book. Also, the new Darling Doodles Designer papers are SOOOOO cute! Also, several of the new In Colors are used as well (and they are currently my favourite colours).

All About Pink Birthdays

So, just playing around with some of my new stuff from the new catalogue. If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at the Level 3 Hostess BUNDLE you get on the last page of the Hostess section in the catty. You receive 2 JUMBO wheels (which are adorable, by the way), and you receive a coordinating stamp set of 4! What a deal! Here is my first sample with it...

Ink: Regal Rose, Orchid Opulence
Other: Flirty Ribbon Originals, Misc Ribbon (White), Small and Regular Tag Punches, Sponges, Dimensionals, 2-Way Glue Stick, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter ("Celebrate").
