Baby Card

A dear friend of mine had a baby a couple of days ago and I wanted to send a nice card along with her baby gift.  I know that one of these stamp sets are retired, but you could find a newer set to replace it with and it will be just fine.

I did some marker coloring and paper piecing on this card.  I stamped the woman image onto the card front in Early Espresso ink.  I then stamped it again onto a scratch sheet of paper in Pretty in Pink.  I cut out the dress and layered it onto the woman image.  With the greeting, I colored it with markers.  I had to ink the phrase twice in Pretty in Pink to get it dark enough to show.  With the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig, it was easy!!!  Thanks for looking!

Elegant Birthday

My mother's birthday was this past weekend so of course I had to make a card for her.  I've been watching Krsitina Werner's 25 days of Christmas videos the last few weeks and she made a card that was this same size.  It looked so nice that I thought that I would give it a try.

The card measures 9" X 7" and is scored in half.  It will fit in a business size envelope.  For all the supplies, check the list below.  I embossed the pink pennants and the damask background with clear embossing powder and I love the way they turned out.  If you have any questions, please let me know!  Thanks for looking!
