A Peaceful Card

I made this card for my little sister, Sarah. I've been missing her a lot lately and feel like the time we spent together this summer was not as relaxing as we had hoped it would be. We are going to make sure that next time we do better. I also had my step-mom in mind when I did this card, she loved the beach and light blue was her favorite color.

All supplies used are Stampin' Up!

Stamp Set: Sketches (retired)
Papers: Crumb Cake (kraft) Cardstock, Baja Breeze Cardstock, Watercolor Paper and Parisian Breeze DSP (retired)
Black StazOn and Chocolate Chip (for flecking)
Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aqua Painter, Dimensionals

Have a great day!

Legos, anyone?

My son has been obsessed with Legos recently. It's not really surprising, when you consider that his father would probably still play with Legos if he had more time. This card was inspired by a few examples of Lego cards that I've seen recently, but the Legos themselves were most inspired by Cindy Shuster's card. I made this card for the birthday of one of Ian's friends. As you have probably already guessed, this friend was turning 6. Ian was so excited about how the card turned out! Instead of digging out each of the three colors I used to make the Legos, I used VersaMark to sponge the edges of the circles, square, rectangle and the number 6. I rounded the edges of the square and rectangle by hand with my Paper Snips, the corner rounder took more off than I wanted. I used the white gel pen to create a highlight on each of the circles and then popped the circles up with a dimensional each. I plan on making a few of these for my "stash".

All supplies used are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted:

Stamp Set: Occasional Quotes (current hostess set)
Papers: Whisper White Cardstock, Pacific Point Cardstock, Summer Sun Cardstock and Real Red Cardstock
Pacific Point and VersaMark
Accessories: 3/4" Circle Pinch, Dimensionals, Big Shot, White Gel Pen, Round-a-bout die (Sizzix)

Another baby card...

I know you're probably tired of seeing this little guy, but I had a card commissioned this week using this stamp. I don't know when the cuteness of this image will get old to me, maybe never! I colored this little guy in using Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an Aqua Painter. I can't believe it took me so long to buy the Watercolor Wonder Crayons, they make coloring an image super easy. Everything on this card is Stampin' Up! except for the little baby bunny...

Stamp Sets: Well Scripted (retired) and House Mouse Happy Hoppers "Sleepy Head"
Papers: Kraft Cardstock, Pink Pirouette Cardstock, Watercolor Paper and Shimmery White Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Black StazOn
Watercolor Crayons (Earth Elements), Aqua Painter, White Fun Flock (for the tail), Crystal Effects, Dimensionals, and Pink Pirouette Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (retired)
