Thank you making machine!

Yesterday all I can say is that I was a card making machine!! I was asked to do the thank you cards for the same person who ordered the wedding shower invitations (here). She wanted something simple but elegant...

I was wanting them to somewhat look like they belonged to the invites so I spent my afternoon cutting out this doily. Seriously took me all afternoon then into the evening of punching out all the holes!! Thank goodness for the tip on the package suggesting wax paper to help seperate the die from the paper! Worked like a charm!!

Now that all 70 are made, this order is ready to be shipped on out!!!

Thanks for stopping by~

Wedding shower invites

I think this is my favorite part of card making! Working with brides (or maid of honour in this case) come up with a design together and create!! Gets me working outside of my creative box cause we all see things differently!! 

I just finished making these shower invites...was a small order in comparison of what I have done (only 40) but it sure was fun!

Have a great day everyone!

More Mothers Day surprises!

Think I've mentioned already that I'm working on Mothers Day cards for a local flower shop back home!! Heres another peek at a creation I made for her to choose from!!!

I really love this flower set from PTI. Took me a while to come up with the proper color configuration for the card. Wanted it bright and classic!! Think I pulled it off?!@ I bumped up the stamped paper and the sentiment is sunken behind to give a different effect. And the ribbon...well I couldn't resist!! Hope you enjoy!!

Thanks for stopping on by!!

FTL 235

Wow this is the first card I've made all week! The joys of spring break and having kids home 24/7. Can't say I'm to sad to be getting back into our everyday routine!

For this weeks Clean and Simple sketch I was at a loss totally (think cause I haven't been all that creative this week). Then I put some papers together pulled out the stamps sets I had laying on my table and came up with this creation!

I really wanted to pull out the vellum. Have had a few conversations about it as of late and I found it in one of my rubbermaid totes and got every excited!!! So stamped the flowers with versa mark used clear embossing powder to make it almost stain glass like and it all came together!! Hope you enjoy!!!
