Baptism Cards for the Twins

These Christening cards are for Katelyn and Olivia. Wish I could be there.

I had to generate the sentiments on the computer, since I do not have the appropriate stamps for a Baptism card. The entire card is on Stampin UP! WW and I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder and Nestabilities scalloped rectangles.

I made this simple card for Lauren's first inspiration challenge here.

Flourishes Challenge FTCC11

The challenge is to use paper piercing. Since I just got some new Spellbinders dies, including a Pierceabilities border, I decided to play along. The paper and ribbon are called Lemon Tart from PaperTrey Ink.
Check out the Flourishes newsletter for fun:

Birth Announcement

Now I can post the birth announcement for Mary Ellen's twins - didn't want her to see it before the girls arrived.

I made 60 of these cards, using another House Mouse design. I colored the image with Copics and used SU! Whisper White and Pink Pirouette cardstock. I used a new EK Success edge punch called Wavy Edge.

The Twins are Here!

Mary Ellen and Ron's twins are safely here. And so adorable, as you can see...

Katelyn, on the left, scratched her face before mommy clipped her nails! Olivia is on the right.

Two by Two

Mary Ellen is getting close! Hope she doesn't see this card before I send it!

I used a couple of circle punches for the carriages and wheels and a piece of wire for the handle.
Colors are Pink Pirouette, WW, and BB.

Mary Ellen in Waiting.

Just a couple of weeks until the twins arrive. This card is a reminder for Mary Ellen to take it easy. Recipe is quite basic: WW cardstock, Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder, Fresh Alphabet by PTI, and some ribbon and brads.

Jane and Joan Birthday - 53

Simple card using Very Vanilla and layers of DP from K&Co . Punched a little porthole to expose stamped image inside.

Joan Can Quilt....Who Knew?

Joan bought an amazing sewing machine! Sounds like she can even program it from her cell phone! Congratulations, Joan - make me something.

I made this "quilted" card for Joan. I used 3 Cuttlebug folders to emboss the papers, then cut the small squares. Added some faux stiching to mimic Joan's talent!

Notecards for Caroline

A set cards for Caroline. The paper is from SEI Charlemagne. The monogram is from Just Rite Monograms. I used Nestabilities Petite Scallops and Small Circles with the Cuttlebug.

What day is it?

These are perpetual calendars I made for Jane, Margaret, and Heather. With a family as large as mine, I think I should be able to fill every slot with a birthday! I used the Bind-It-All to assemble them.

Valentine's Day

I really love the stamps from Verve's Hearts on Fire. They lend themselves to embossing beautifully. This card is SU Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, and I used PTI Sweet Blush for the pink hearts.

Verve Week 3 Challenge

First opportunity to use the new Hearts on Fire set. Colors are SU Chocolate Chip and PTI Sweet Blush. I used a Cuttlebug border folder and an old pair of scallop scissors for dimension.
