Merry Christmas for Christmas Card Challenge #43

Well, another Sunday is here which means there is a new challenge up at Christmas Card Challenges. This week, we have an inspiration photo for you to use.  However, if you'd rather not, the only real rule to play along with us is to make a holiday or Christmas card.

I used one of my favorite PTI sets to make my card. I just love the fun little cup.

Birthday Wishes Shaker Card for Whimsy Stamps

I've got yet another shaker card for you today for the current challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge. I used the super cute Thanks a Million stamp set from Whimsy Stamps for the presents. The sentiment comes from a couple of other Whimsy sets -- Say What and Happy Everything. Isn't it great that the sets work so well together?

To construct my card, I first took my die with the 4 circles and made some pencil marks to help make sure that I stamped my presents in the right place. Some fun sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added as the shaker element.

Thanks for your visit. Hugs!

Birthday Balloons

I've got a fun birthday card for you today that features some fun products from MFT and Verve.  I started by stamping my card base with the Happy Background cling stamp from MFT. I then die cut three balloons. 

Originally, I was planning on having a sentiment elsewhere on the card but then realized that I didn't really want a sentiment competing with the word background. That's when it hit me to stamp it directly on the balloons. I know, not a big deal but for me and my brain, it kind of was. :)  I then decided to add some matching sequins to each of the balloons for something extra. 

As always, I truly appreciate you stopping by. Happy Tuesday.

Celebrate Today

Today's card is one that I gave to my daughter on the day of our reunion last month. I wasn't sure exactly what sentiment I wanted and nothing quite seemed right.  But really, are there the right words for meeting the child you placed for adoption 20 years ago?  In the end, I decided that the day was a day to be celebrated, hence the sentiment.  

I've popped the main panel up with foam tape and matted the white panel with just a touch of black card stock. I've used my Rosie Posie set before but I don't think I've ever used the large images in it that I used today. I can't wait to make some more cards with these stamps.

As always, thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by and see what I'm up to.
