Bridal Shower Fun!

My cousin is getting married next month... I can't even believe it!  I used to spend a week or so with her as a babysitter in the summer, feeding her mac & cheese and playing movie theatre or making up dance performances :)  It doesn't seem like she is old enough.  But it seems she is. 

Mom and I hosted her shower this weekend.  It was lovely.  Here are a few of the fun stamped finishing touches we came up with.

We made a fun sign so guests would know they were in the right place.  I added Rococo Rose colored roses to the sign- using the "To a Wild Rose" stamp set.

Mom came up with this fun purse, so we whipped these up for everyone.  It says "Spread the Love" and included a small jar of homemade strawberry jam.  Fresh jam!  I made it Thursday! YUM!

This was another of my favorites.  The only Stampin' Up item on here is the flower.  It's made using the petals in the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape.  This was my first time using it... it was so much fun!  
As for the dress- this was cinnamon rolls- because we had brunch.  YUM! 

And we need pics of course!  Here is the bride with myself and Mom.  What a fun & beautiful day!

Purple Posy Daisy

I just love the way that title sounds ;) . Purple Posy Daisy.  I know that Daisies are traditionally white but this is just too much fun!  I am loving the Daisy Lane set and new punch!  It pairs great with our previous daisy set and punch.  LOVE Stampin' Up for that!

Here's the card for today.  

I call this technique "framing".  
It may be called something different, but here's the main idea... you start with a window sheet, punch or fussy cut your pieces and attach them to the window sheet in whatever fashion you like.  Then take your scissors and snip around the outside until you have your starting shape again.  Then place it where you want it. 

I used Highland Heather & Purple Posy cardstock.
Seaside Spray, Pear Pizzazz and Purple Posy ink.
Daffodil Delight marker & wink of stella.
mini dimensionals.
Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Birthday card fun

My youngest just turned 11.  My oldest decided he wanted to make a card for his brother.  So we spent the day together making cards.  He learned some fun techniques and some good lessons... like cleaning your stamp before you stick it into a new color ink.  This lead to learning how to remove night of navy ink from your pumpkin pie ink pad, lol.   HIs card turned out hilarious.  He agreed but he had so much fun with it and made it special for his little brother.  

He hasn’t stamped with me in quite some time and as you can see, he enjoyed making this card (and making a mess of the card).  Anyone can stamp!

Cow's it Going?

Have you seen the new "Over the Moon" stamp set?  
It's adorable!

For this card it's paired with the Stitched Rectangles to create a fun window.  This window is backed with some fun DSP.  Super simple!
