showCASe your style Challenge #7

Hi friends. A new challenge was just posted at showCASe your style. We've got a great inspiration photo for you to use this week. The challenge is sponsored by Clearly Whimsy Stamps. You don't have to use them to play along but if you are the randomly chosen winner, your gift certificate earnings increase.

I used the recently released Up, up and away and the Up, up and away sentiments sets. I love the font that Simonne chose for the sentiment set. A few finishing touches like some sequins and a rounded corner finish off the card.

For You

I'm back today with a card using up some more older papers from my stash. I used some of my favorite dies from MFT for this card (linked below).  I layered the tag and then popped it up on some foam tape for just a bit of dimension.

My card is also for this week's anything goes challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. Take good care friends.

Supplies not linked:  Gold foil paper from my stash

Thinking of You with Paper Smooches

Happy Wednesday friends. I hope your week is off to a good start. I busted out some older patterned papers for today's cards. I recently reorganized my papers and moved them to a more accessible spot in my craft room so I'm hoping to use them a bit more this year.

The three circles are cut with my stitched circles dies from Lil' Inker Designs. The sentiment comes from a Paper Smooches stamp set which has matching dies.

And there you have it -- nothing fancy but it was sent to a dear friend. Thanks for your visit!

I'm linking this up to the anything goes challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge blog.

A baby shower invitation

Do you remember this fun shaker card I posted a couple of weeks ago? Well it was what I was originally thinking I would  make for my sister-in-law's baby shower invitations that I offered to make. However, I quickly realized that it was ridiculous to think that I could make 50 of those. So here is what I ultimately decided on and made. All the information was done on my printer and adhered on the inside.

I have two cards for you today so be sure and scroll down.

My first card uses the super cute Get Well Soon Additions set and matching dies. I also used the Basic Borders Trio die set to add the scalloped border to the bottom of my patterned paper. 

Here's the inside of my card. 


For my second card, I used the gorgeous Large Love word die. I also used the fun little heart from the Get Well Soon stamp set to randomly stamp on my background.  Hard to tell in the photo but I covered the love die cut in clear Wink of Stella. I also die cut it three times to give it a bit of dimension.
