Birthday Dragon

The dragons from My Favorite Things Magical Dragons set are so cute, I had to color and use one more!  This time I used the brick embossing folder on white cardstock and then lightly sponged the edges of the bricks using gray ink. The dragon is not as colorful as those on the previous dragon card, but it is adorable.  I originally was planning on having the "Happy Birthday" embossed using Versamark ink and white embossing powder.  But after stamping with Versamark, I poured clear embossing powder over it instead.  It looks like I used a darker gray ink for the sentiment.  I added a layer of foam to the underside of the gray layer before adhering it to the card and added a few stars.  Have a great day and find yourself a little stampin' time!

Welcome Baby Cards

Today I am posting the baby cards I made for the baby shower I attended over the weekend.  The    Storybook 1 framelit  is from Pretty Pink Posh and was used for the periwinkle cardstock.  For Mommy's card I added the animals and sentiment inside the opening.  For Grandma's card, I used the cut-outs left from Mommy's card.  I popped them up with dimensionals and then added the animals and sentiment.  Now we just have to wait for the baby's arrival to find out if it is a boy or girl!  Have a great day!

Baby Shower

I attended a baby shower yesterday and Grandma Sheryl made the decorations.  She put a lot of love and time into everything. Today's post includes a couple of pictures of the diaper cakes she created.  She had the bigger one on the main table and each table had a smaller diaper cake for the centerpiece.  Sheryl made the invitations and favors, too.  She put her Cricut to work making all of the animals for everything and printing invitations!  Aren't  they so cute?  Have a great day!

Magical Dragons

I didn't really need MFT's Magical Dragons stamp set, but the little dragons were just too cute to pass up. The stamp set is adorable and can be used for numerous occasions. (The cute little dragon would be perfect on a new baby card.)   The background was embossed with Stampin' Up's Brick Wall embossing folder.  The sentiment is from an Amuse stamp set and was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Since this was the first card I created using Magical Dragons, I am sure that between now and Father's Day this card will be improved on more than once!  Have a great day!

Rain or Shine

I have been coloring images from new My Favorite Things stamp sets and I thought I should probably stop coloring and make a card so I have something to post!  Since we had such a rainy evening yesterday, I used the little girl and her cute ducks from MFT's stamp set, Rain or Shine.  Once again, the set does have coordinating dies, but I use the SNC instead.  The images were colored with alcohol markers and I used a white gel pen to create the polka dots.  I will stamp one of the sentiments inside when I know for what I will be using the card.  Have a great day and once again, stay dry!!

Too Cute Turtle

Happy Monday!  I had a wonderful Mother's Day with family and friends.  I also spent some time playing with a new stamp set from My Favorite Things Stamps, Too Cute Turtles.  This set  consists of cute images and sentiments.   A set of dies is also available, but since I have the Scan N Cut, I did not purchase the dies.  I am no longer a Stampin' Up demonstrator which means I can actually show pics of stamp sets I use for my cards.  Have a great day and stay dry!

Wreath Card Class

I mentioned earlier in the week that I was taking an online class at  When I signed up for the card club, I was sent the makings for the four cards for this month.  That included the digital images.  I colored the images ahead of time and cut them out on the Scan N Cut.  Today's post is of the four cards I created from that class.  There were sentiments for all four cards, but since I needed Mother's Day cards, I added my own sentiments to two of them.  Richard added little splatters to his cards, but I chose not to add the splatters to mine,  They were pretty enough without the splatters for me.  The rhinestones are not showing, but they do add just the right amount of sparkle.  I am looking forward to seeing what next month's class is going to be!  Have a great weekend and a very Happy Mother's Day!
