Thank You Card

My triplet cousins just graduated from the 8th grade and recieved quite a few graduation gifts.  My aunt asked me to make thank you cards for them to send out.  I absolutely love the Elegant Notes card.  It makes it so easy to decorate the card when the front is already taken care of.  I used Island Oasis DSP behind the cut-out.  My ribbon is Old Olive as is part of the tag.  I also used Very Vanilla for the underside of the card to hide the DSP and for part of the tag.  The ink I used was Rose Red.  I hope you like it!

Mojo Monday 149

So, I have decided to give the sketch challenge a try.  I saw the sketch for Mojo Monday here and got to work.  It was much harder than I expected it to be, but I had a general idea of my color theme so I went from there.  I used Bashful Blue, Soft Suede, Whisper White, and Soft Suede DSP.  The ink is Soft Suede and the stamp sets are Happy Moments and Thank You Kindly.  I hope you like it.

Mom's Birthday Card

This was the card I made from us for my mom.  She loves the summer and the beach so I thought this stamp set would be a perfect theme for her birthday.  I used Soft Suede for my base and Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, and Tempting Turquoise for the mats.  For ink I used Soft Suede, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Tempting Turquoise.  My idea was CASE'd (copy and share everything) from Julie Alberda here.  I think she has the cutest cards, ecspecially using this stamp set. Hope you like it!

Melon Mambo Birthday Bliss

This is another card I made for another of my cousin's swim friends.  I love Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo so I figured I'd pair the two together and see what I could come up with.  I used some Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and my Boho Blossoms punch.  Hope you like it.

Elegant Eggplant Birthday

My cousin had asked me to make birthday cards for some of her friends on the swim team.  For this particular card she wanted purple and orange.  I cringed at the color combo but thought I'd try it out before I asked her to pick a different combo.  So, I got out my Elegant Eggplant and my Island Oasis DSP and got busy.  I actually LOVE how it turned out.  What a cute combo!! I think I may actually make a couple more of these to have for some of the craft shows I'm going to be participating in.  Hope you like it!

Mom's Birthday Card

This was a very busy weekend for our family.  I had a couple last minute card orders from my family members for birthdays and graduation so I worked on those and then we had picnics and parties all weekend.  I played around with my photo program on the computer and made a watermark but I don't like how it looks so I decided to just use my personalized stamp as my watermark.  It's actually easier because I can just upload and go.  Easy!
I made this card for my mom to be given from my aunt.  I love this color combo and even though it's retired, I still love the Cottage Wall DSP.  I CASED the card from Wendy Janson here.  I think she did such an amazing job on the card that I wanted to share it with my mom.  I used three different stamp sets for this card......Birthday Bliss, Quick and Cute, and Tropical Party.  I hope you enjoy it!

For You-Tropical Theme

So, everyone I show this card to thinks it's really plain and in need of something else, but I have no idea what.  I CASED the color combo from Jenni Ingerick.  I changed up stamps, embellishments, and the sentiment. I'm so glad I invested in the Boho Blossoms Punch.  It adds such a nice touch. I hope you like it : ))

Garden Whimsical

I saw this layout by Krista Fenton on the Demo website and loved it. I changed the stamp set but kept everything else the same. I used Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, Island Oasis DSP, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight. I must say my Boho Blossoms punch is awesome! I can use it for the little add-ons when it's missing something. Thanks for looking!

Greenhouse Razzleberry

This is a sketch I saw from Dawn Easton on SCS.  I changed the DSP and colors but kept a similiar layout.  I used Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Chocolate Chip.  My stamp set is Greenhouse Garden and my ink is Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry.  Enjoy!

Tropical Party For You

This card I CASED from here.  I love Stacey's cards and this, in particular, jumped out at me with her color combos.  Instead of using Bermuda Bay, I used Tempting Turquoise.  The paper is Island Oasis DSP, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, and Soft Suede DSP.  The ink is Tempting Turquoise and Soft Suede.  The stamp set is Tropical Party from the Summer Mini and the sentiment is from All Holidays.  I hope you like it.

Island Oasis Scrap Pages

Last month I had a class for beginning scrapbooking (not really my thing, but I gave it a go anyways).  I had these pics of the little girls printed for some time and I have been wanting to use them.  When I first recieved my Island Oasis DSP I thought the colors went perfect with the pics, so my scrap tutorial was something I could end up keeping.  I haven't gotten around to journaling yet, but I will soon so I can add some more pages with my soon-to-be-retiring stamp set and paper : ((
Hope you enjoy!
