CAS Wedding card

This card came about after I made my baby cards the other day, and I had the Lemon Tart and Kraft scraps still sitting out. Sometimes the best (and easiest!) cards are made when you already have the stuff out for some other reason, and the new card just magically comes together!

Stamps: Big and Bold Wishes (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Kraft (SU); Lemon Tart, Stamper's Select White, Dotty Biscotti (PTI)
Accessories: Scallop Border punch, Certainly Celery ribbon (SU)

October 2010 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Festivus....the holiday for the rest of us!

This month's blog hop theme is winter holidays other than Christmas. I thought I'd keep it fun and lighthearted with a card to celebrate Festivus, which is December 23. It's also kind of a shout out to my husband Matt, who loves Seinfeld. :)

Part of Festivus is the "Airing of Grievances" - thus the couch.

Hope you have a great holiday season, no matter what holiday you celebrate!!!!

Stamps: On My Couch (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Black Onyx (Versafine); Chamomile (PTI)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet (PTI); The Thrift Shop patterned paper (October Afternoon)
Accessories: circle and scallop circle punches (Marvy); Ledger Alphabet Stickers (October Afternoon); Ocean Tides twill ribbon (PTI); corner rounder (EK Success)

Babies, babies, everywhere!

I guess it's that time of my life where all my friends are having babies! There have been a TON of 2010 babies in my circle of friends and family (starting with my own, of course!), and my stash of baby cards has been seriously depleted. Time to whip up some new ones!!!

I made several of these in both pink and blue!

Ink: Black; So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, and Bashful Blue markers (SU)
Paper: Whisper White and Kraft (SU); Lemon Tart, Dotty Biscotti (Papertrey Ink)

Tiny Treats card

I got inspired today! Very quick and easy card. This took me about 10 minutes to make, and that's only because I hadn't used the frame stamp before and there was a tiny learning curve for figuring out the best way to stamp it, and so I messed up two other pieces of white paper before I finally got a good image. :)

I colored the dinos with SU markers, outlined them with the T1 Copic, and added Stickles to the little hearts for a teeny bit of sparkle.

This would make a cute set of notecards, don't you think?

Stamps: Framed, Tiny Treats: Valentine (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine)
Paper: Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Accessories: Pear Pizzazz and Melon Mambo Markers (Stampin' Up!); T1 Copic; Stickles

Wall Art for Baby Zachary

I got to meet beautiful 2 week old baby Zachary yesterday. His nursery is decorated in a green and brown jungle theme using the Papagayo set from Lambs & Ivy. I wanted to make him some wall art to hang in his nursery that matched the bedding set.

Here is the nursery set and a close up of the quilt. I tried to mimic the quilt squares in my wall art.

I used a million different stamp sets and patterned papers so I'm not going to list them all. Let me know if you have any questions about something specific. The colors I used were: Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink), Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Kraft, Soft Suede, Old Olive, and Certainly Celery (Stampin' Up!).

Here are a few close ups:
