Birthday Bash!

Last weekend, my friend Tami over on Finally Fit at Forty hosted a stamp party. If you haven't checked out her blog, make sure you take the time. She is amazing and has an awesome story to share. Anyway, her theme was Birthday cards! Here are a few of the cards we made. This one was inspired from Inking Idaho. The squares were punched out and then the entire background was run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I wish I took better pictures so you could really see how awesome it looks. This card was my favorite! I saw something similar on a blog but couldn't remember where.... But I loved the pink color combo.
I Cased this one from a blog as well.... I tried to find it again so I could give credit, but wasn't successful, so if this is yours, let me know so I can add your name.
This last card used the cupcake stamp set and punch from the Occasions Mini catalog. I tried to show that my little cherry was glossy but again, my picture taking skills aren't the best.
Happy Stamping and thanks for checking me out!

Babies, Babies, Babies!!!

Over the next few weeks, I know at least nine women that will be delivering little ones! Isn't that just crazy!! So as you could guess, this post is all about babies....

First up are these little cute treat boxes. I made around 20 of them for a shower we had for a fellow teacher at my school. I got the pattern for these at
Chic' n scratch and they were super easy to make. I just rolled the onesies onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and used a blender pen to color them in. Then i just cut them out and used a dimensional to pop them up a little.

Here is the card I gave to my friend Michelle. She is expecting a little boy.... Actually, everyone I know is expecting boys....

This card was for Amy and her little one. She had a Monkey theme going on at her shower so what better than a monkey card.
Here is a close up of the punched monkey. I posted one similar to this on my blog last summer.

I have a few more to post tomorrow. They are on my other camera and I need to charge the silly battery!
Stay tuned for Birthday cards this weekend!
