You Grow Girl

This is such a fun card to give to an expecting mother-to-be! Using the Swell News stamp set, this card measures 4.25"x5.5". Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive card stock was used. The Rich Razzleberry background is embellished with swirls to provide texture to the overall background. Various punches and the Circle Scissor Plus were also used to create the other added embellishments. The envelope is stamped with the diaper pins in Old Olive along with bottom to compliment the card. Thanks for looking!

3x3 Thank You Note

My first 3x3 note and I loved the way it turned out. I used all scraps for this project besides the gems for the butterfly body. The stamps sets I used are Much Appreciated and Delight in Life by SU!. The butterfly was cut out using the Big Shot and SU!'s Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die. The other tool used was the the scallop border punch. I stamped the butterfly with Versamark Ink using the Itty Bitty Borders Stamp set. The colors used include Pretty In Pink, Pale Plum, Whisper White, and Gable Green. Overall, I love the way the note came out. This was a creation that just came together! :)

Kid Themed Thank You

I love creating this card! The colors are YoYo Yellow and Chocolate Chip. I used the Stampin' Up!'s retired stamp sets Wild About You  (may still be available on the dormant list) and Much Appreciated. The background dots were embossed using the Big Shot and the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates. I also used the Big Shot to cut out the ovals. The Scallop punch was also used! I really like this color combo and appreciate you looking!
