Party Time!

Hey! Quick post, just a birthday card I made for a friend who turned 18!
I tried to use colors from a challenge and a sketch, but I have issues with sticking to a design, so I decided the card didn't really qualify for either. (The challenges were the Color Cue one and I forgot the other...whoops.)
But I still like it. Actually, I'm obsessed with it.

  • Making Memories Pattered parer
  • White, yellow and grey card stock
  • 1 1/2 inch circle (I used a Martha Stewart circle cutter)
  • Uni-Ball Signo Broad white gel pen
  • K&Company birthday sticker
  • Making Memories brad
  • Scallop punch (Fiskars threading water punch)
  • Rub-on (Not sure what company, sorry, but most likely K&Company or Making Memories)

And here's a card I made a few weeks ago and never posted.
I Gave it to my cousin for his 3rd birthday last week. He's so cute!

  • Light green card stock
  • K&Company birthday sticker
  • K& Company Wild Saffron patterned paper
  • Uni Ball Signo Broad white gel pen
  • Off-white buttons
  • Brown embroidery thread (DMC)
Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks and Baby cards

Lots of good news!! :-)
1. I got my driver's license!! Whoohoo!
2. My teacher had a baby! (Girl) Mazel tov!!

So I made a card (or 2) for her!
Card #1:
I used this as a tag on a Purim basket I'm giving her.
It's an idea I'm pretty sure I made up myself (unless I somehow unconsciously stole the idea from somewhere else) , and I'm pretty darn proud of it! How cute is it?

It's a mini version of this card I origionally made:

Card #2:
I'm also giving her this card, which I posted long ago in this post. I love how it can be for a girl baby or a boy baby!

And heres card #3:
It's a thank you card (obviously)
and it's the first time I've ever made 2 of the same card. I really like it. I was asked by my mother and my friend to make a thank you card, and this is what I thought of!
Just one of them:

Papers used are from the K&Company paper pads I always use, Que Sera Sera and Wild Saffron. The black and white paper is from a Marcella by K paper pad. The card base is Kraft and the heart is punched from Walmart glitter paper. The gel pen is Uni-ball Signo Broad and the other papers are off-white and purple. The sentiment is a MSE stamp.

So, hows everyone doing?
I'd love to hear in a comment!

Birthdays- CPS #207

I just got back form a 2 day vacation with my school to a hotel- cuz why not? My school is so cool! But I managed to make 2 cards the night before I left since it was my sister-in-law's birthday and my neighbor's birthday over the weekend.

Here's the one I made for my sister-in-law:

I love her so much and I hope she liked the card.
Look at all the sparkles!! Yay!
MSE Birthday stamp
Black ink
Brown and cream cardstock
Scallop edge punch (Fiskars threading water punch)
Glitter chipboard circle- ? No idea!

Look at the sparkles!

Speaking of cupcakes, I really want this stamp set from Pure Innocence, mainly for the cute cupcake sentiments, since I love using cupcakes on cards, even non-birthday ones!

And here's the card for my neighbor:
He turned 16, so i wanted a more fun card, but it may have come out to young for him. Oh, well. At least it's not girly.

So I thought I could do this for 2 challenges, the CPS one and the "Less is More" (3 squares) one, but I wasn't so sure this was "clean and simple" but I figure "what the heck?" No one's going to get mad at me- hopefully. Next time I'll make it simpler!
The squares are from this old Making Memories scrap I had. Seriously, I keep everything as scraps- and here, I was glad I did. The scrap was tiny, bit I was able to get 3 1 1/4" squares out of it- perfect! I hope it's "cool" enough for my neighbor!

(Side note- isn't the picture a lot clearer this time? I think I'mm take pictures on my dining room table more often; the lighting is better there!)

Kraft, orange and beige cardstock
K&Company Wild Saffron paper- big surprise there!
Making Memories paper (squares)
Uni-ball Signo Broad gel pen
Marcella by K sticker

If you're here from the challenge pages, please take a minute to check out the rest of my blog and let me know what you think! Thanks!
