Mother's Day Card

This was the card that I made for my mom for Mother's Day. I have had the Butterfly Kisses set from Papertrey Ink and had never inked it. I was dying to use it, so I did on this card. :) The 'blessed' is from the Paper Tray set from Papertrey Ink. The blue 'label' behind blessed is the Designer Label Punch from SU!. I tried to match the colors in the Basic Grey paper to the inks I used.

All supplies SU! unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Butterfly Kisses (Papertrey Ink), Paper Tray (Papertrey Ink), Designer Label Punch/Stamp
CS: Ballet Blue, Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, WW, Basic Grey
Ink: Ballet Blue, Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa
Other: Blue Gingham ribbon (from Jody's ribbon share), Stampin' Dimensionals, Designer Label Punch, Circle Punch

More Blogger RAKs

Thank you so much Allison for the RAK! I love the 'hidden' message (the circle piece slides open to reveal a greeting)! Thanks so much for thinking of me! Love checking out your blog - still don't know how you do it all girl! :) Just in case you haven't checked out Allison's blog (I don't see how you couldn't though - she posts TONS of information there), you can go to Stampin When I Can to see more.

Thank you Tammy for this awesome blogger RAK! I love these long notes and always forget to use them. Super cute! Thank you again! You can see Tammy's work on SCS in her gallery Tkfite. Also be sure to stop by her blog at Stamp with Tammy.

Thank you again to you both for brightening my day!!

Confirmation Blessing

My niece (God-daughter) was confirmed last weekend and this was the card I made for her. I used a color combo from the Inky Antics message board (Color Challenge #28). The patterned paper is Basic Grey Stella Ruby. The flowers are Marvelous Match-ups (Inky Antics) and I made them into flowers - the flower is actually 3 different stamps in the set. The blessed is from Papertrey Ink's Paper Tray set. I have fallen in love with Nichole's designs and have all, but the last one. I didn't order it right away and thus it is sold out for now. I will be getting it though! :) The blessed is stamped on SU!'s Designer Label stamp/punch. I then punched a Not Quite Navy circle and placed it behind the punched label.

All Supplies SU! unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Marvelous Match-ups (Inky Antics), Paper Tray (Papertrey Ink), Designer Label Punch
CS: Gable Green, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, VV, Basic Grey Stella Ruby
Ink: Gable Green, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip
Other: Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals, Circle Punch

1-on-1 Card Challenge

I made this card for a 1-on-1 Challenge for a group I belong to. They post a 'challenge' and then when everyone signs up, you are paired up with one person. The goal behind it is to do your absolute best work, since you are making 1 card. The challenge for this card was No Square Corners. The size of this card is 5x5 and I round the corners using my Coluzzle. I also used the Doodle This set and the sentiment from Simply Said. I really liked how this turned out. I made this while at a crop. During the crop, the organizer (Korin) held a scrapbook page and a card contest. Well, I entered this card in the contest and it WON!!! I was so excited!! :)

All supplies SU! unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Doodle This, Simply Said
CS: Taken with Teal, Rose Red, WW, Petals & Paisley DP
Ink: Black, Taken with Teal, Rose Red
Other: Lt. Pink Grosgrain Ribbon (from one of
Jody's Ribbon Share), Marvy Giga Scallop Circle Punch, Coluzzle, Sakura Glitter Pen, Stampin' Dimensionals, Blender Pen

Stamp Club - Last Card

This was the last card that we did at my stamp club last month. This was my favorite one. I used SC68, which can be found here. I love how the Shimmery White card stock sparkles and the color of the roses. This would make a good Mother's Day card - for those who made this. :) I didn't use greetings on all of the cards this time, so that they would be able to stamp a greeting and send if they wanted to.

All Supplies SU! unless otherwise noted:
Stamp Sets: Both Way Blossoms (Hostess); French Script BG (Both sets being retired, so get them while you can)
CS: Shimmery White, Pumpkin Pie, Apricot Appeal
Ink: StazOn Black, Pumpkin Pie
Other: Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green Markers; Apricot Grosgrain Ribbon
