Birthday Wrap and Card

This is an example of a birthday present that I wrapped this weekend with a birthday card attached that I made to match...Of course I had to use polka dot wrapping paper...and I love the way that lime green and hot pink look with black and white!! Not much to this wrap or card, but it still makes a fabulous impression...

Stamps: Happy birthday sentiment
Embellishments: Prima flowers, paper from Targer dollar bin, faux pearls, black and white polka dot ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Black and white Chipboard buttons from Making memories
Tools: Stampin up ticket corner punch, Foam mounting squares

Sympathy Card

Today I thought that I would post a Sympathy card that I made yesterday...and let me tell ya, I hate making sympathy cards, I love creating cards, just not cards with a sad undertone...So I am hoping that this card will brighten the recipients day in this time of sadness...I added lots of bright colors and glitter along with some faux stitching and polka dot ribbon...I used a variety of Copic Markers to color in the images after I stamped them using Tailored Tins Create-a-flower stamps...The faux stitching is from the All in a Row stamp set by Stampin Up...Hope everyone has a great day!!

Thank You Card

Two post in one day, how lucky are you!! I needed a quick and easy thank you card last night and this is what I came up with...I love the way teal and brown look together so I made those two colors the theme of this card...Sometimes I think that it is easier to pick a color scheme first before stamping a card, just to give a little direction...Hope you like it!!

Summer Fun Gift Basket

Today's post is a gift basket that I did for a family with lots of kids who are staying out at the beach for a week...The giver requested that the basket be filled with children's snacks and goodies...which is exactly what I did...I decided to use a big yellow basket, doesn't it remind you of that beautiful beach sun?...I finished this basket with a little lime green shred and a bright paisley bow...I love the way this basket all came together, lets hope the customer and her family did too!! Have a good day everyone!!
