Scallops Birthday

This card is a cross between Stampin' Up! and Cuttlebug. It was easy to put together but took a bit of time. The two tone paisley took most of the time but looks great. Here is a list of items used in the creation of this card.

White card stock
Pale blue card stock (I was using up some that was given to me but Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise is a great substitute.)
Close to Cocoa card stock
Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder
Cuttlebug Paisley die cut
Scallop Punch
So Swirley Stamp Wheel
So Many Scallops Stamp set
Sassy Suzie Stamp set sentiments were used on the inside
Versa Mark watermark ink
Stampin' write Tempting Turquoise marker
Stampin' dimensional/Pop dot

I thought this turned out great for a spring birthday and it works for men or women too! The most time consuming part of this card was switching out the two tone paisley parts but it was worth it. I think it makes this card pop.
Happy Stamping!

A Light Done Simply

Don't go into shock or anything! Yes, I did find a few moments to stamp recently. I took a little time off from this old house and came up with this. Here's the list of items I used to create the Light Unto my Path card.
-Close to Cocoa Card Stock
-Very Vanilla Card Stock
-A Light Unto My Path Stamp Set
-Frames With A Flourish Stamp Set
-Canvas Background Stamp
-Close to Cocoa Ink
-Bordering Blue Ink
-Close to Cocoa Marker
-Ticket Corner Punch
-Scallop Circle Punch
-Cuttle Big ribbon Sliders Die Cut

This is card that is Stampin' Up! except for the use of a die cut from the Cuttle Bug. It is also easy to create. The most difficult part was to shorten the front of the card by about 1/4 of an inch and then use the ticket corner punch on all four corners. I then inked the Canvas stamp in Close to Cocoa and placed the card front on top of the stamp and pressed firmly. The rest is pretty self explanatory. I did run the edge of the VV card stock with phrase on the Close to Cocoa stamp pad.

I think this would have been great with ribbon on the ribbon slider but I was working with just a few materials to see what I could come up with.

Just a little Sass

I had a blast working with this stamp set from Stampin' Up! It was so much fun to take a few minutes out to be creative and stamp something and what could be more fun than using Sassy Suzie? I made this up for one of my college friends from Ohio State. I hope she gets a kick out of it.
I started with Pixie Pink card stock, white card stock and a pink striped paper that I purchased at a discount store. The ribbon came from a craft store. Pink Passion and Close to Cocoa ink was used and then I colored the image with Stampin' write markers and Watercolor Wonder Crayons. The stamps used were Sassy Suzie, So Swirly and Fine Lace. The round window was punched with a round giga punch and the Scallop Circle punch was used to punch a piece of white card stock which had been stamped with the So Swirly Jumbo Wheel.
