Make a wish

When you read this I am on my way to Las Vegas for the weekend! I made this card using Polka Dot Basics for the background. I used vintage cream ink and was able to heat embossed with clear detail ep. I then stamped the tuilip image in each color (aqua mist, lemon tart and hibiscus burst) onto a vintage cream sheet and cut each out with my Nestabilities classic oval dies. I sponged all the edges with Antique Linen ink from Ranger. I used the coordinating satin ribbon and various buttons from my stash and tied them onto the ribbon with DMC floss.
Thanks for looking!

Wishing you Sunshine!

These super cute umbrellas are stamped in Smokey Shadow, Hibiscus Burst and Ocean Tides ink. I used the coordinating paper as well as Ocean Tides ribbon. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I used the SU! ticket corner punch on each corner and added a gem. Sorry for the weird angle on the photos!

Thanks for looking!

Welcome Little One

I made this card for my friend who is expecting soon, as a gift from the parents in my son's preschool class. She is doesn't know if she's having a boy or girl, so I used yellows, oranges, and greens. The little star is great for many different types of cards. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I used a damask image to create a background on the lemon tart layer.

Thanks for looking!
