CPS 100

Here is my card for CPS 100 challenge. I used a basic brown cardstock and some paper remnants for the background panels. Then I used the wavy squares die cutter from Cuttlebug to make the center panels and stamped the sentiment (Studio G) and edges of the center panel with coffee colored ink. For the butterflies I actually overlayed 2 butterfly embellies from Walmart to create 1. I like the "flying off the card" look it gives it. Added a piece of sheer brown ribbon from JoAnns and done.

CPS 99

IT'S A GIRL! Alicia had little Emma on Monday night, mommy & baby all rosy and healthy. So I was inspired to make a card for a precious little girl. Mommy likes green so I used a soft green with white dots for the background and a soft pink with slightly darker pink dots for the paper I ran through my Cuttlebug with a stamp die cut, then used the embossing folder to add the baby carriage embossing. I tried the alphabet die cut for the first time with this card, wow now that was an experience. They don't cut as nicely as everything else I have tried. But I think I finally learned the trick (after MANY attempts). I sponged Brillance Pearlescent Pink onto the letters and ran ribbon down the side to tie all the carriages together with.
I couldn't stop with one card for this challenge so I made the blue card also. I used my Martha Stewart flower punch to make the flowers, added a little color using my gel pens and topped them off with a little Stickles Diamond glitter glue.

Butterflies are free!

In hopes spring will come sooner, LOL, I made this birthday card. I actually love this one! I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the navy blue background and the white scalloped panel. I used the Cuttlebug die cutter for the square sentiment. I sponged the royal blue onto the square, stamped the sentiment with black Brillance ink. The butterfly embellishment is from Walmart, along with the sheer lace.

Wedding Card

Oh I LOVE this new stamp by Inkadinkado! I just bought this from Nosser's this weekend. I used my Cuttlebug emboss the little hearts on the white background, and the double hearts die cut for the hearts embellishments. I used Ranger Diamond Stickles on the double hearts and light blue stickles to boarder the oval. For the stamp I colored the stamp with my watercolor markers and then stamped it on white card stock. I used my Fiskars lace punch for the pink panel.

Another one - Wedding tag that is...

I forgot all about this new stamp I just got, and I got it just for this reason... Dah!!! The picture didn't focus too well, but you get the idea.

Wedding name tags

A good friend of mine is getting married this summer and her wedding color is Pink! I have been asked to come up with some options for the place setting name tags. Here are a few of the options so far. Any ideas out there????

Here is a close up (kind of) of each one so far... My camera did NOT want to focus in on there for some reason! I think I need good ole fashion sunlight.

I am trying to go simple, there has to about 250 of these to be made. Still working on more ideas but any feedback or suggestions would be TOTALLY helpful!!!
