Strawberries for Mom

 

Homemade Strawberries! I love using the conventional shapes to create something unexpected. In this birthday card for my Mom, I used the Full Heart Punch and Perfect Polka Dot Folder to create this strawberry with the Little Leaves Sizzlits. I even made a mini strawberry for the inside of the card! It was really fun to give this card to my Mom yesterday for her birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!

Featuring: Debra’s Peek-A-Boo Boy Birthday Card

At last week’s stamp camp, we created our own Peek-A-Boo cards.  This is Debra’s creation for her young nephew.  I love the Pacific Point….in varying textures and dimensions!  The Blue Ribbon stamp set was a great choice for this layout.  What a great idea!  Thanks for sharing, Debra!

Peek-a-Boo Poppies Birthday Card

Peek-A-Boo Poppies - Exterior

In this card, I created a peek-a-boo effect by folding cardstock and cutting out aligned circles.  Then I framed each cut out with a scallop ring in Wisteria Wonder.  Dimensionals added a great effect on each panel.  Then, ribbon and rhinestones added some jazz to the front.  Wow! What a card!

An Elegant Twist on the Patio Party Suite

Night of Navy - Anniversary

The *NEW*  Patio Party Suite has the most versatile designs in the Stampin” Up! Designer Series Paper.  In this card, I used the Chinese lantern design as a back drop, framed with whisper white card stock that is embossed with Perfect Polka Dots on the left side.  The blue heart polka dot designer paper, also found in the Patio Party Suite,  created a subtle surround for the greeting.  This elegant greeting stamp is found in the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.  The embellishments include Marina Mist 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and Dazzling Details gel on the polka dot embossing.
