Great Friend

I love the Great Friend Stamp Set from the Mini Occassions Catalog. This card has a base of Whisper White. Then I put Baja Breeze as a layer and stamped the leaf branch twice with Baja Breeze Ink. The Designers Series Paper (DSP) is also in the Mini Occassions Catalog, it is Walk in the Park. I backed the DSP in Basic Grey. I then put two half pearls on the bottom. I also have a strip of Cameo Coral that I put White Tafetta Ribbon on and tied a knot. I then stamped the butterfly (love that butterfly) with Baja Breeze Ink on Whisper White and cut it out with my Paper Snips.

If you do not like cutting stuff out, let me tell you the Paper Snips make it SO much easier to cut out objects.

If you are interested in any of the products, please email or visit my website to place an order.
Thank you for stopping by!

3-4-$5 Cards

This card I totally cased from Jackie Bolhuis, who is my upline. This card uses the Daisy #2 Sizzix Die that Stampin' Up! carries as well as their new Summer Sun Corduroy Buttons. Bashful Blue and Whisper White Cardstock and Bashful Blue 1" Ribbon is also used on this card.
I know that I saw this idea on someone's blog, but I lost my shortcut. So if this was your idea, email me or post a comment and I will give credit where credit is due. This card uses the Great Friend Stamp Set and the Scallp Oval Punch, both can be purchased from the Mini Occassions Catalog. The colors for chalks, ink and cardstock that I used are Pretty in Pink and Old Olive.

I saw a similar card on Sheryl Dreyer's Blog. I used Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey, and Whisper White Cardstock. This is with the new Manhattan Embossing Folder that Stampin' Up! carries. This also uses the new stamp set Oval All from the Mini Occassions Catalog.
If you would like to order any of these supplies, visit my Stampin' Up! Website or email me and I will get the order placed for you!
