Wedding Wishes card

Hello Everyone!

Today I'm here with a quick post showing you a beautiful wedding card
I made using one of my favorite stamps ever!!

I just love this dress from Jaded Blossom! It just is so gorgeous and stamps very cleanly. I then inked the edges with black chalk ink and added a damask type print paper behind from Michaels. Then a simple black bow I made with my 3 girl jam bow maker. So elegant and sophisticated. 

Hope everyone has a great rest of your week!

Baby girl card using die

Hello!! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I know I did 
and today marks my first day at my new job. Wish me luck!!

Today I thought I would share a card I made to go with a baby gift.

I just love this card! I used my new 3 girl jam bow maker. Which I am completely in love with!
I started with rounding the corners on the card base and my background paper 
from doodlebug design. Then added the ribbon and pop dotted the sentiment. The same paper 
just reverse side. On top of that I used the new Jaded Blossom curly label die to stamp 
my sentiment on which is from the Michaels dollar bin and 
I added a little flower I put together from recollections with a 
bronze brad in the middle. It's hard to tell but I also added 
some bronze pearls to a few of the flowers in the background for a lil depth.

I of course also had to embellish the envelope.

This was really a fun cute card to make! I really am in love with the colors and design.

For a cute little girl

I made this for my friends daughters first birthday party a while ago. 
I thought it would be something fun to share.

I started off with paper mache letters from Joann's and spray painted them a light pink.
I then decorated each letter with buttons, flowers and paper
flourishes. I trimmed the outside of the letter in the same bright pink ribbon that I
used to hang them with.

Here's a close of the A.

Have a great weekend everyone! Next week I will have a birthday card
for my bestie's husband who turns 30 this weekend!!

Good news and a card!

I haven't posted in a while because I've been crazy busy getting 
everything squared away for the start of a new job, I'm very nervous as I have
been with the same company for 12 years (most of my working life). This new journey is going to be
fun (I'll be working with my best friend again) but very scary to think I will no longer go somewhere
I have considered my second home quite a while now.

On to the fun stuff!!! I have still had a little bit of time to create, mostly thank you cards to people
I have worked with over the years.

I created a very simple, yet elegant card for one of my previous bosses.

The Stamps are all Jaded Blossom, I just love that tree! It's hard to see but I added a few stickles
to the tree for a lil sparkle. The paper is from my scraps and the ribbon was in a Teresa Collins kit I had.

Hope you like, have a great day!
