Welcome Baby Hybrid

I used a stamp image from MDS for the focal point of my cut-out baby chick and for the sentiment. The background is lightly sponged with Crisp Cantaloupe and Daffodil Delight. A quick and cute card. Love how solid the digital images turn out!



Thanks for popping in!
Supplies:
Paper: Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Crisp Cantaloupe DSP
SS: Digital stamps

Mixing Old With New

I've had these cute watercolor base cards for several years but just haven't ever used them...until now. I needed some quick and cute cards and voila, these bases came to rescue! I love the watercolor look and how great that they were already painted for me. I used the Garden Party stamp set and masking.



So glad that you stopped by!
Supplies:
Paper: Whisper White, Watercolor card bases
SS: Garden Party, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Memento Black, Daffodil Delight
Big Shot: Ovals framelits

July Paper Crafters Sampler



Some fun news this month...I've joined the Paper Crafters Sampler's design team for 6 months. 

In each issue you’ll find:

·         Projects using Stampin’ Up! Only products
·         Full step by step instructions on recreating each project.
·         Additional images needed for recreating projects.
·         7 – 8 projects, two projects being 3D and one EXCLUSIVE template each month.
·         Exclusive templates offered in PDF and SVG.
·         Options for discounted full year subscription or monthly subscriptions.
          The Paper Crafters Sampler is released the 10th of each month.


 Summer is in full swing, and the July 2015 issue of Paper Crafters Sampler is celebrating the season with the theme, "It's Summer", which explodes with summer-themed projects.  Included are energetic summer colors, to soft sea-mist blue and greens.  Let's not forget the butterflies that grace the summer sunflowers.  You can spend the day creating your very own butterfly mobile.
So, if you're looking to stay out of the mid-day heat, try creating some of these "thirst-quenching" projects.

The template of the month is a State Highway template, to incorporate your 'vacation travels' this summer.

Here is part of my summer themed project for this issue:

A Hello You Birthday

Today I'm sharing one of the cards from my March Hello You Vellum card class, and hopefully this will be the first of a bunch more posts. I have quite a few cards that I've made, taken pictures of, but haven't had time to share on my blog. I'm looking forward to getting some of them up and posted to share with you.
This card was inspired by several cards that I've seen using the Hello You framelit with the masking and sponging, but I decided to cut the "Happy" framelit out of black CS so that it would stand out. These little word framelits make such cute cards.

So glad that you stopped by!
Supplies:
CS: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Back to Black DSP
INK: Soft Sky, Coastal Cabana, Black Memento
SS: Crazy About You
Big Shot: Hello You framelit, Stars framelit, Large stitched rectangle (Lawn Fawn)
Accessories: Stacked with Love washi tape, sponge, rhinestone jewels
