Pink Harley!

For my daughters 24th birthday card I used the stampin up motorcycle stamp. (As you can tell my daughter is on the tom boy side!) I also used some retired raspberry tart DSP. I colored the motorcycle in with the aqua painters. That is my favorite because it looks hand painted then. I used glitter on top of the pink. The cardstock is whisper white, pirouette pink, romance rose and crumb cake. I had some pinkish purple seam binding to make the bow.

Little Girl Birthday!

I love these sweet little faces on the pure innocence stamps. For this card I did not use stampin up. I needed to make two cute little birthday cards for my nieces two cute little twin daughters. I used october afternoon dsp paper. I did however use crumbcake and whisper white cardstock from stampin up.

Friends Never Fade

For this card I used the friends never fade stamps and paper. I also used Thoughts and Prayers stamp set as well. I used the chocolate ship, whisper white, and baja breeze cardstock. I also used a chocolate ship satin ribbon. I saw this card on ilinacrouse_dayofgrat blog on splitcoast stampin and really liked it.

Welcome Neighbor!

For this card I used the Good Neighbor stamp set. I still have some of the sweet pea paper that I love and the felt flowers. I keep that just for my stash!

Because I Care

For this card I used the Because I care stamp set. This card is really easy and is perfect for having a workshop! The cardstock is soft suede, whisper white, celery and pirouette pink. I also used smooch spray!

More Greeting Card Kids

This is another card with the Greeting Card Kids. The DSP is also october afternoon, report card. I also used the real red, black and natural cardstock from stampin up.

Back to School

For this card I used the cute Greeting card kids stamp. I really like this stamp! The cardstock is crumb cake and very vanilla. The DSP is from October Afternoon and is called report card.

Greeting Card Kids

I made two sizes of this card. The larger one is 4x4 and the smaller is the 3x3. Stampin up has 3x3 envelopes but for the card that is 4x4 I had to make a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 envelop by hand. It was easy though.

Greeting Card Kids

I love the new Greeting Card Kids stamps! They are so cute! For this card I used pumpkin pie cardstock and whisper white. I used a old olive DSP for the print. I also used some antique glass chunky glitter. I am so glad that stampin up is selling this now! I also used the new black taffeta ribbon. I really like these ribbons because they look antique looking. I am so glad we are selling seam binding ribbon and Tinsel Trim. I love to make my cards look shabby chic so I can't wait to get these and use them on my card.
