Flourishes and Cuttlebug

Hello all! I hate that this photo didn't turn out as good as I wanted it was night time when I took it...but, you still get the gist and if you click on it, I think it will make the image bigger.

I do not know the name of the CB folder as I threw the packaging away. It is just perfect for sayings like this one from Flourishes. It is one of my favorite stamp sets called Rock A Bye Baby. I had a baby shower to attend and she knows she is having a what better way to show how happy I am for her than to give her something special like this little card. I used Paper Trey Ink's 2008 Pink Bitty Dots and stamped the sentiment with Versamark and then used White Embossing Powder then heat embossed it. You may not be able to see, but it has little stars around the saying "Welcome Sweet One." I used White Raindrops to add dimension to the embossed image and sheer pink May Arts Ribbon. Of note, I used the envelope die cut from Paper Trey Ink to match the card...oooohhhh how I love this die. It is sized perfect for A2 envelopes. It just makes giving a handmade card even more special when the envelope matches!

I wish I had pictures of the Diaper Cake and Banner that my friend Debbie and I made for this shower... It turned out perfect and was quite the hit of the shower.

I wish every one of you a great week ahead! Thanks for your comments and your visits. I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration from what you have seen here :)

Another PaperTrey Ink Favorite

Hello Peeps! Wishing all of you great dads out there "Happy Father's Day!"

Today I am showing one of my favorite sets! The card uses Papertrey Ink's Year of Flowers - Violet Image. First off, I used their Tin Types Impression Plate on white text paper...these plates are fabulous and if you haven't seen what they have done with their dies and plates, well you are just missing out! I used mine with the Cuttlebug and it is too easy peasy! I used Papertrey's 2008 Bitty Dot Basics in Purple. I then used Spellbinder's Nestabilities Peony and colored the outside with my Silver Krylon Leafing Pen. I cut out my Violet, which I stamped and colored with my Copic Markers twice and put them on dimensionals. I also colored the leaves and cut them out and put them on dimensionals. For the center of the flower I used a spacer with a purple rhinestone in the middle. I used Spellbinders Long Deckled Edge Nestabilities for the sentiment, which also comes from the Papertrey Year of Flowers - Violet set. I then used a template from Lauren Meader's My Time Made Easy called Pucker was so easy and it took no time. I again used the Tin Types Impression Plate on white text paper added the silver pearls and the ribbon came from my stash.

Thanks for your visit and I hope you like what you see...I certainly had a great time making it! You can click on the pic to see a bigger picture of the photo. Have a wonderful week all!!

JustRite's Plant a Little Love

Hi all! I hope you have all had a relaxing weekend. I certainly have had one. Yesterday I went to the grocery store with my sister, Annie...We always go together, because we have so much fun! After putting up the goodies, I went shopping for a couple of outfits, which I found in under an hour! So that part was wonderful as well. Then I came home and watched movies with my pal, Piper. Today I have been cleaning the house and feel like I have accomplished something.

Anyway, on to the card. I made this back in April. I sized it at 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" and I used the Spellbinder's Nestabilities Circle and Scalloped Circle. The DP came from Joann's. I used Versamark ink and Silver Embossing Powder and heat set the images. I colored with my Copic
Markers and added some silver pearls that I received as a prize from my cyber buddy Silke Ledlow (Thanks Silke, I am SO enjoying these beauties!!!)
That is it for now...I have more work to get done. I hope you all have the best of weeks, take care!

JustRite Baby Stamps

Hello all! My goodness the weekends certainly go by fast. I had a great time with friends of mine on Saturday. We went to a "flea market!" Oh boy it was hot!!! But there was quite a nice breeze every now and then. I almost broke down and bought a puppy. It was the cutest darn thing and now I am glad that I did not get one. My Piper would have been just too jealous! She is an Australian Shepherd and she is now 7 years old. What a smart dog!!! We practically talk to each other, we know each other so well. One of these days, I will post a picture of my "bestest ever friend!" That is IF I can get a decent photo of her. She hates the camera and runs as soon as she sees me bring it out. Then we went to a casino...Oh my what fun that was!! One of my friends won $57.00 and the other friend won $15.00. Me? try 20 cents...LOL!!! After that we had lunch together. I cannot wait until we can do this again.

On to the card. Of course I used one of the JustRite Baby Oval stamps using the 2 1/4 X 3 1/16 inch Harmony Classic Oval Stamper II. I used Versamark Ink and Silver Embossing Powder. I colored the pacifier with Spica Glitter Pens. Used the Spellbinder's Petite Oval Nestabilities using silver cardstock for the background. The paper is from Paper Pizzaz. The ribbon is May Arts, which I believe I bought from Flourishes. I also used some white patterned ribbon that I got from Hobby Lobby and a Martha Stewart Lace Punch. The flower is a Prima.

I have to get cooking...I am making Camp Stew in the Crock Pot tonight and cornbread in my black cast iron skillet (love that thing!). So I need to get a move on. Thanks again for your visit and I wish you all the very best this coming week!
