This swap card is cheerful and springy! Unfortunately the creator did not add her name, so I'm unable to give her due credit. Stamp Set: Perennial Birthday. Colors: Highland Heather, Mango Melody.

A very cheery card for celebrating!! My next post will have two more favorite swaps. 

 


Baby Shower Challenge

20180913_155318

Grey and White isn't very exciting. That was my challenge when I offered to help my working daughter with a Baby Shower she is hosting soon. The shower is for TWINS - a boy and a girl. Well, I decided to add lots of texture, shine and glimmer! These are "Table Tents," which are the same on both sides.

By adding a "W" of cardstock inside, I insured the tents would not collapse.

The cute little critters are from A WILD THING Stamp Set #144344. The Teeny Tiny bows are from the FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES #147922 and cut six bows at once.20180913_155721

This TWINS Banner will hang on a white tablecloth on the food table. 20180913_155828

Mini canning jars with cute critters and vellum "grass" are accents for the food table.

I attached the critters to floral wire and added a die cut tree from the same FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES. So how did I do with a challenge of grey and white?? Your stamps are so versatile so use them beyond greeting cards! 

 


Gable Box goes Elegant

20180723_103437

Elegant Silver & Shimmer!! Mini Gable Boxes are SO HANDY: #146961 Lustrous White and #145568 Silver. I carefully opened the side seam of this box using an Exacto Knife. That enabled me to emboss each half of the box with the lovely NEW Tufted DYNAMIC Embossing Folder #146335!! It's a "WOW" with texture!!

I finished off this tufted box with Silver Embossing Powder, Sparkle Glimmer Paper, Silver Foil Paper and 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edged Ribbon. Ready for GIVING! Try it!
