Bold Baby Card!

This was supposed to be my second card for Monday's Clean and Simple Card Challenge......but I used RED instead of pinks or corals. Doh! Well, I LOVE it! Since I finally figured out how to emboss/deboss with my nestibilities, I thought it would look great with the star!

Ink: Riding Hood Red (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Kraft, Riding Hood Red (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: Oval punch, Distressing Tool, Ribbon, Big Shot, Nestibilities, Dimensionals

Krafty Baby Girl

This card is for Monday's Clean and Simple Challenge - to make a card using Kraft, Pinks/Corals, and one other color. Since I spent a good part of my day stamping and punching these stars and scallop sentiment, I opted for the baby card!
Stamps: So Many Scallops, Nursery Necessities (Stampin'Up!)
Paper: Kraft, Pink Pirouette (Stampin' Up!), White

Man Cards - More

The first two cards I came up with were quite plain, and I thought adding some color might be fun! This card is my least favorite of the four, but oh well.

Stamps: Simple Friendship, Lots of Thoughts (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Ivory (Unknown), More Mustard, Real Rust, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: Dimensionals, Butterfly Punch

This one is my favorite! I love "Lovely As A Tree" and it always makes a good card! I'm guessing they will choose this card for me to make 50 of!

Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, Wonderful Words (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Always Artichoke
Paper: Ivory (Unknown), More Mustard, Real Rust, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke (Stampin' Up!)

Man Cards!!!

Well, I had a request from a friend and co-worker to create some invitations to celebrate that fact that he and his partner are now registered with the state as a couple. SO, not only did they have to be man cards, they have be appropriate for a diverse audience! Geez, what a challenge. This was the first card I came up with.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Lots of Thoughts (Stampin'Up!)
Paper: White, Mellow Moss, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Basic Black, Mellow Moss
Accessories: Big Shot, Embossing Folder, Ribbon, Dimensionals

This was the second card I came up with. They like earth tones, so I thought Kraft and Chocolate Chip would be a nice combination. It seemed too plain without the embossed base.
Stamps: Wheat (Judikins), Lots of Thoughts (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Craft Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Dimensionals, Big Shot, Embossing Folder

Monochromatic Hologram Wedding Card

This card was created for Sunday's Featured Stamper Challenge on SplitCoast. This is the card that I based mine on: Kisa's Card
I changed the colors, embossing folder, ribbon orientation, stamps, and made it a monochromatic card. It's difficult to get a good picture because the embossing powder I used is "Hologram."
Stamps: For The Bride (Stampin' UP!)
Ink: Craft Ivory (Stampin' UP!)
Paper: Ivory
Accessories: Big Shot, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Ribbon, Nestibilities, Paper Piercing Tool, Dimensionals

What A Wonderful Day!

I am feeling so blessed to be a guest designer with Treehouse Stamps! I can't wait to get those stamps in my hands and get inky! I need to figure out how to get the Treehouse logo on my blog. I'll try it tomorrow, I'm too tired to concentrate at this point!
