Orange is hot!

I've been seeing orange all over...of course it's a great summer color...this card is pretty much a direct CASE, except the original used an orange button for the center flower (which I didn't have)...I cut the petals of the flower for some texture...of course this is another Mixed Bunch card...

Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Basic Black

Father's Day...maps

I had some paper (non-SU!) left over from a school project and I had seen a card similar to the circle card done in white with traditional blue/green map paper, so I decided to try my hand at these two cards..

The top card uses the embossing folder/frame which I cut out and sponged to give it that Old World feel (Crumb Cake, River Rock, Soft Suede)...

Kisses for my hubby

Just a little note for my hubby...this stamp (S.W.A.K.) is retiring and I've always wanted I splurged and I think I'll get a lot of use out of it.

Here I used Real Red, Pretty in Pink and Pink Piroheutte and just stamped all over!  Can't wait till Valentine's Day!

Summer Smootches

Isn't this new Designer Series paper fun??  The patterns are perfect for girly cards like this Mother's Day card...I layered the flower twice to give it some dimension...the leaves are the 5 petal punch...

The photo does this card NO justice!  It is so simple and elegant...the paper is from the new Summer Smooches Designer paper from the new 2012-2013 catty...the white flower is actually embossed with white embossing powder and stamped with a flower from the Punch Bunch set...

Bridal shower #2

The other day I posted my Bridal Shower card for a friend, but since 3 of my friends were also invited to the shower, I was commissioned to make all the cards...

I love the colors of this card (Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride--how appropriate! and Pear Pizzaz)...these colors are retiring, so I am sad to see them go...this stamp set is a SAB set from eons ago called Merci, but it's always my go to card for 'girly cards'...would make a great Mother's Day card!

I know, I know....'s not fall, but I couldn't resist this card!  Trendy Trees is is a much under-used stamp set for me because I am so adverse to pulling out the Stamp-a-majig...but it really wasn't bad at all...and the corduroy button just tops off the autumn theme!

More Mustard, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso....

Check back soon...I just got my shipment of some goodies!
