Bear hugs and birthday tags!







Hello everyone! Miss me?! I have missed you! : ) I had a wonderful time at the CK Scrap booking convention! I went with the greatest group of girls and got to see so many fun new products and make several fun projects! Two days of all day creativity does a person good! I will be posting some of my projects made there, but first want to catch up on the things I made before I left! : )

I needed a card for my son's girlfriend's going away gift. She left for college this weekend! Big sniffles! We truly miss her so much already! She is such a sweetie. We got her a fluffy stuffed elephant to let her know that she could never be forgotten and I wanted to make her a card to go with it! I chose one of my favorite all time stamps. It is just a generic, no name stamp that I found in some dollar bin several months ago! Don't even remember the store name! It was quite a find though! Look at that cute bear face!!

I also needed a card to send along with a small package for my mom! I was so happy with the first one that I made a similar one for my mom. I added a few different things and added faux stitching on the ribbon to give it a different look! I also added a faux cross stitch around the focal image with my paper piercer to give it a hand made feel. The blues on the card go perfectly with that cuddly looking fella!

Recipe:
Stamps: No Name and SU! One of a Kind
Paper: SU Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Pacific Point and Pink Pirouette
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Pink Passion and Blue Bayou
Extras: Scalloped Edge Punch, Paper Piercer, Small and Large Oval Punch, Small and Large Tag Punch, Vanilla Ribbon and Sparkle Bling

Birthday Tags!

I needed some card/tags to go along with my niece's birthday gifts! I made these and tucked the back half into their gift bags and let the front half hang out. They are 3 years apart, but their mom likes to keep their gifts and themes the same, so I duplicated the tags! I used that cute little ballerina from Lizzie Anne Designs. I added a vellum butterfly cutout that I colored pink. I flipped up the wings so it looks like it just landed on the card! I used my Large Circle Punch as a template and sponged pink over the stamped image. They were a hit! : )

Recipe:
Stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs and SU Whimsical Alphabet
Paper: Bashful Blue and Vellum
