Quilt Card

I like alot of card designs that look like quilts. They are just fun and easy to do with Designer Series Paper. The Square Lattice embossing folder adds the little extra touch to make this paper look (and feel) like a quilt.

Use up scraps!

This is a fun card design that uses up alot of left over papers. The Triple Treat Flower stamp coordinates with 3 different Stampin' Up! punches which makes this flower easy to construct. I used Crumb Cake and Concord Crush cardstock for the card and Wisteria Wonder ink stamped on Whisper White for the flower.

Petite Purses

Here are two more versions of the adorable Petite Purse Die. This die is so easy to cut and assemble. For the purse on the left I cut some DSP to cover the top purse shape. For the purse on the right I ran it through the Big shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Both use brads to hold the handle on and to add an embellishment to the purse flap.

Wedding Invitations (Winter)

As we use up the extra Shimmery White paper in stamp classes (that I had left over from these wedding invites from the New Year's Eve wedding for my daughter's best friend)....I keep talking about the pretty invites we came up with for this wedding. So I finally remembered to share these with all of you. The colors were Certainly Celery, Basic Gray & white and she had a snowflake theme. I made up these two samples for the bride to choose from. She chose the one on the right. These were so pretty and affordable as well.

Girly Gift Card

This is a girly style of the card from three posts back. I actually made 50 of these and 10 of the masculine version for thank you cards for Teacher's Appreciation week for our school. The inside has a pocket/slot that holds a gift card (or cash!) This card is done in Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Pool Parade. I replaced the Pool Party shape with various colors: Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzleberry. Regal Rose and it was also a very pretty color combination. I hope you can see all the Dazzling Diamond glitter on the stamped flower images as that adds the "wow" factor. These cards were a great way to use up odds and ends of ribbon as most coordinated and added to the fun shabby chic look.

Husker Scrapbook page...MDS to Traditional Scrapbooking

I've always been a fan of traditional scrapbooking but love the ease of the My Digital Studio. So here is the 8x8" page from the previous post turned into a 12x12" page complete with chipboard letters for the title. So I turned my MDS into my traditional style of page layouts....and, if you are any part of "Husker Nation" you will understand the red balloons used for page embellishments.
To make the "Nebraska" title I glued Real Red cardstock to white blank coasters and then ran them through the Big Shot machine with ther Serif Alphabet dies. Balloons were made from an oval punch and a small heart punch used for the balloon knot. Go Huskers!

My Digital Studio

My Digital Studio 2 will soon be available. I finally found some time to play with MDS and this is one page layout I came up with. Of course I will take this page and add some embellishments as well as layering it on to a 12x12. I'm thinking a chipboard title around this with some red balloons page accents.

Masculine Gift Card

Here's a masculine card idea for Father's Day next month. This card has a pocket/slot inside to hold a gift card. Jump ahead 3 posts to see this same card done in a girly color scheme.

Bridal Shower Gift

The new Petite Purse Bigz Die for the Big Shot machine is just adorable. I made this purse as a bridal shower gift. Inside this adorable purse is a note for the bride to be find her egift card from Pottery Barn. A regular plastic gift card would not fit in this size of purse but a folded up paper does. So I just purchased an ecard online and made this purse to hold the gift. The bridal shower theme was "Breakfast at Tiffany's" so I used Stampin' Up!'s Pool Party cardstock to go with that color scheme. I finished off this little gift with a monogram tag for the bride to be.
