Punches Three Baby Girl Cards

Here are two of three baby girl cards I made yesterday with the Hostess Set - Punches Three. These were really quick and easy with my Cuttlebug. The third card is very close to the second, so I didn't post it.
I love how the buttons turned out with the scallops on the first card. If I do this again, I will cut the scallops first and then score and fold the card as the front ends up quite a bit shorter than the back if you don't. The first card also uses the shimmery white cardstock from SU!
The second card is pretty self explanatory. I think I'll be making some more of these to have on hand. I probably make some in blue and some in neutral colors.

Mojo 55 Inspired by Nature

I've been so anxious to give this set a try and finally got to it tonight. I haven't played Julee's Mojo Monday at http://www.poeticartistry.blogspot.com/ for quite a while, so I decided to give it a go today with my new Inspired by Nature set.

I've been accumulating the Watercolor Wonder Crayons over the last few months, but I haven't been using them. This stamp set is perfect for coloring right on the stamp and then misting and stamping. I love the way the image turned out. I know I'll be using this technique with this set again....maybe even for the card trade I'm in next month.

Paper: Chocolate Chip, True Thyme, More Mustard and Whisper White

Ink: Chocolate chip and More Mustard on the tag only; True Thyme (barely seen on the 2nd layer)

Accesories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons (More Mustard, Always Artichoke, Chocolate chip and a little bit of Really Rust just around the edges of the flowers), Jumbo Eyelets, water mister

I made a few other cards today also, but I'll have to wait until tomorrow to upload them. They are all Cuttlebugged, so it is better to photograph in daylight to get the dimension of the embossing to show up.

Blessings - Stacy

Birthday Card for 2 year old

Today's card if for my nephew James' 2nd birthday. Wow, how times flies! I decided to give SCS's sketch challenge this week a try as it looked very appealing and easy to use up some DP I had sitting here. I also pulled out my first pieces of the new In Colors! The stamp set used is by Inque Boutique which I had never used before.

We're looking forward to another beautiful day here in South Dakota. I probably should go outside and do something, but my new stamps have been calling my name for the last few days! We'll see how things go. For now we just need to focus on getting homework done and things in order for school tomorrow.

Blessings! Stacy
