Mr. & Mrs.

We are invited to a wedding in October and I am excited to share the card that I made for them.  It really turned out nice and I am so glad that it did. The groom of the young couple getting married is probably my son's best friend, and Justin is also standing up in the wedding; just like Tony stood up in Justin's wedding last year.  I am always amazed at these two, they have known each other since grade school, have spent so much time together but yet have always respected each other and probably didn't even realize it.  They are so funny together and are like two peas in a pod!!

Maybe you have noticed but I also have made cards using the matching stampset to this embossing folder, its called Fabulous Florets and are meant to be used together. But I decided to mix it up just a bit and not use the stampset, just the embossing folder.
All Ingredients are Stampin' Up!
Cardstock:  Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Vellum Cardstock
Stampset:  Tiny Tags
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Calypso Coral
Accessories:  Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Flower Garden Embossing Folder, Scallop Oval Punch, Small and Medium Oval Punch, 2 white brads

Here is a close up of the Embossing Folder that I used.  It is definitely one of my favorites!!

As always, take care and thanks for stopping in!

Its a Circus!!

I think we all have days that are just a circus sometimes!!  I know I sure have and its usually happens on the weekends when you have so much you want to get done, get sidetracked and realize much later that you got nothing that you wanted to do done!!

I haven't done any punch art lately and figured why not, I don't have many "childrens" stamps but I should probably get some more since I have a lovely little granddaughter now!!
All Ingredients are Stampin' Up!
Cardstock:  Early Expresso, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Garden Green

Ink:  Bashful Blue, Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede
Accessories:  2 Jewels, Sponging
Punches:  Postage Stamp, Scallop Circle, 1 3/8 & 1 1/4 Circle, Lace Ribbon and Modern Label

Here is a photo of the stamp set, it has alot of cute animals on it; which is why this card ended up being so much fun to make!!

As always, take care.
