Baby girl card

The first thing I bought when I found out I was having a baby girl ( almost 3 years ago!! Eek!! ) was a pair or ruffle bottom tights. They are my absolute favourite!

So when I came across a card on Pinterest with a ruffle bottom I kicked myself for not thinking of it sooner. And them figured out how to easiest create the look.

I used PTI's onesie die and cut the top off.
Some ruffled ribbon- mine happened to be elastic, so I backed the piece with chipboard so it won't bend and bow.

Doilies, pink polka-dots and ruffled bottoms. That's what little girls are made of!

Fabric card fronts

Amber at Damasklove made some awesome fabric stationery and I had to give it a try.

I laid down some fabric on a card front that had been covered in scor tape. Trimmed the fabric and ran some liquid glue around the outside. When dry, I had to cut it down as I used the green Tombow that dries tacky- whoops!!
So I re ran a but of regular glue around the edge. Used PTI's Stiched Sentiments and a sentiment from WMS fancy phrases

Some SU pleated ribbon that is not baby blue as shows up, but a beautiful dusty aqua seemed appropriate.

The nice thing about this technique is that the stamped parts sink into the adhesive a little more than the rest, giving it almost a letterpress texture! Beautiful!

Have a great weekend!

Wedding card

This card = labour of love !

Lots of punched branches, lots of glue and sticky fingers, lots of snipping with scissors and a whole lot of love.

Special wedding card for a special couple. Used some hoarded products ( silver edged notecards, blue shimmer cardstock ) and I lived! Imagine that!!

Plaid W's

Today's post is brought to you by the letter W - for Wplus9 and Waltzingmouse stamps.

I have a box of already stamped stuff that I need to go through and use. This plaid stamped panel was in there and made this card come together SO quickly.

Filled in the stars with a Spica. A little bit of shine can still be masculine right??
