Avant Garden #2

Hi!

 

So at the beginning of the month, I had a goal of using recently retired and retiring Stampin Up items to make a dent in my stash. I made one card and posted it May 1st. Tonight I finally got back to the pile of cardstock and patterned paper that I cut up. I stamped enough focal points for 4 cards!

 

Here is the first card that I finished~

 

 

I stamped the flowers with Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron inks. My color palette comes from the Blooms & Bliss DSP that I used on the card. This one will be a little bulky to mail but I really wanted to use the ribbons I bought to go with the paper.

 

I’ll share the next card tomorrow!

Carousel Card & Treat Bag!

Good morning!

 

Today I am sharing the card and treat bag I made for my mom! She loves carousels so as soon as I saw the Carousel Birthday set in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog, I had to get it. I stamped several horses and then colored them in with the blendabilities that SU carried a few years ago.  Then I used my Scan N Cut to cut them out, they cut out so nicely.

 

 

First I made the treat bag using the coordinating Cupcakes & Carousels designer series paper. I added one of the horses on a doily, then added the for you which is a coordinating die cut from the treat bag set.

 

 

Here is a close up of the card which uses more of the dsp – isn’t the carousel horse paper so pretty? I love it.  I added another horse on a doily and added the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

 

Have a great day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I’ve been using happy a lot in my post titles! Lots of happy days around here to celebrate!

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! My mom is off today so I am taking her out to breakfast and then who knows what kind of trouble we will get into (usually shopping lol).

 

Today I am sharing the card I made for my mother-in-law.  I’ll share my mom’s tomorrow!

 

 

We bought my mother-in-law a hanging planter full of succulents and when I was thinking of what to make for her card, this set from Stampin’ Up! came to mind. It’s called Oh So Succulent and full of lots of fun succulent images! Lining them up on my mini Misti made stamping them a breeze! I love the coordinating dies and paper too. I can’t wait to play with this set more.

 

Have a great day!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!!

A holiday near and dear to my heart for so many reasons. I began scrapbooking 13 years ago this month and while I don’t do it as often, it’s something I hope to always keep a part of me. I need to learn to make more time to do it!

 

This is my first page since last summer, for a challenge at A Cherry on Top. They have an NSD celebration going on with lots of interesting challenges.

 

 

All the items included were part of a recipe I had to follow. It made for an interesting page. I do like how it turned out although I felt quite rusty making it!

 

Have a great night!
