Rose Red Birthday

Rose Red Birthday


In this feminine floral birthday card, I paired Rose Red Cardstock and Tangerine Tango Cardstock. I love the four-corner layout jazzed up with the Scallop Punch element, Perfect Polka Dots Folder and Floral District Designer Series Paper. This layout was inspired by Mojo Monday #249

Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister, Makayla!

Featuring: Guest Stamper, Debra

In this Melon Mambo Get Well Card, Debra paired Old Olive Stampin’ Pad Ink and Melon Mambo Cardstock.  This double-folded layout plays up the levels of coordinating flowers, colors and textures…from the Framed Tulip Embossing Folder on Glossy White Cardstock to the Floral District Designer Series Paper and the Tree stamp from Thoughts and Prayers Wood set.  Thanks for sharing, Debra!

Yesterday I turned a sheet of Whisper White Cardstock into my very own custom Designer Series Paper!  I am very excited to use this on a project today.  I will post my creation later.  Super cute!  I think I will be able to use this single sheet on several projects, so I went ahead and filled in the whole 8.5×11 page.  Half way through, I changed from the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Pad to Midnight Muse Stampin’ Pad so that my DSP would have some variation in projects.  Completely custom!

Try your hand at this One Sheet Wonder technique and make your own DSP today!  Need supplies?  Check out my online store.

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!
