Feathers In Green And Gray!

Hi everyone! It's been a little bit since I posted! I was on a fabulous two week trip to Italy and we had so much fun! I love traveling but it is always so nice to get home to your own bed:)

While I was away I couldn't do any of the Color Throwdown challenges so I am super excited to get back to creating cards for this awesome challenge. The color scheme for this this week Color Throwdown #444 is simple and soothing and I kept my card clean and simple to match!

I used two tones of green and one shade of pale gray to stamp in my feather images. I stamped the top images first and then covered them up with a piece of paper to avoid stamping over them with the bottom images. I was actually planning a larger space between the top and bottom feathers but obviously I couldn't see very well through my scratch paper!

However, I prevailed and found a thin, one line sentiment stamp that wouldn't cover up too much of the pretty feathers. The sentiment is stamped in the same soft gray and looks awesome double mounted on green and gray card stock! I cut the main panel down a bit and added in some patterned paper to bring out the gray. I finished up with some clear green sequins for some shine!

New Baby Snuggles!

Hi everyone! Making baby cards is always such a joy! It's all about love and softness and sweetness! This card, made for a first time moms baby shower, is no exception!

This is the first time I have used this charming onesie set from Reverse Confetti and it is too adorable! This sentiment is just too cute and will be perfect for this millennial mom! I stamped this onesie in a soft pink and will be layering it over a couple of pinking edged squares. The first square is stamped in a small floral pattern and then embossed with a pearly powder. I topped it with the smaller square which is washed with a light pink watercolor and glittered with a bit of Perfect Pearls for a subtle shine. 

Tiny Swiss dots are so perfect for baby cards and I made this the focal background of the card and rounded the corners for a bit of interest. I tied everything with some soft tulle ribbon in pink before popping up the adorable onesie and adding in some shiny sequins!

The new mom will be so thrilled to receive this pretty card and I couldn't be happier creating it for her! The snuggle IS real!

'Faith' Note Cards!

Hi everyone! The Simple Stories 'Faith' paper collection is definitely one of my favorites! I am a sucker for cute florals and sweet words and this collection is loaded with them! I recently created a mini accordion book with this collection and had lots of the adorable paper left to make the sweetest note card set!

I picked out some of my favorites from the 'Bits & Pieces', chipboard and stickers and then decided on some solid color card stock to complement them! Each card has it's own special details and it was so much fun putting them all together! I used the gorgeous papers, which are stunning on both sides,  to make a matching envelope for each card too for an even more beautiful set!

These cards measure 3 1/2" x4 7/8" which is plenty of room to show off each design! A sweet jar of flowers, a delicate butterfly and lots of hearts for this card! 

I just adore these super cute light bulbs! A few extra pieces of patterned paper and a chipboard sticker make this card extra charming! The feathers on the inside of the envelope are awesome too!

A  pretty bird and lots of flowers make this card bright! I added dimension with some chipboard flowers too! I matched the papers for the envelopes to the cards!

A trio of potted succulents will put a smile on any recipients face! Each pot has a tiny enamel dot for embellishment!

To keep all of these cards together, I took one piece of paper, cut it long enough to enclose all of the cards and gave it a fancy edge! I added in tiny grommets and tied the whole thing closed with some cheery yellow ribbon. The final touch is a pretty tag with more of those lovely flowers!
