A Fun Popsicle Card

This is the perfect summer card! Very unique (unless you've been surfing stampin' blogs). This card is simple and I think it's really cute. I was inspired by several blogs, but actually got the measurements from PattyStampinsSpot. The scallop circle punch was used to make the "bite" in the corner. These cards work great in a variety of colors or with different greetings.

Baby Shower Invites

These are the baby shower invites that I made for my sister's baby shower, which is scheduled for the end of July. I've made about 20 so far. I didn't turn the flash off for this pic, so it turned out a little bright. I may take another one, if I get a chance. I used the "By Ones & Twos" set from the Ocassions mini b/cause the sample card inspired me. I stamped the onesie 2x. Once onto white and once onto DS paper from the Baby Boy SS kit. I then popped the DS paper one up over the one on white. These cards were actually very time consuming b/cause of the scallops and the paper piercing along the top and around the circle scallop. There's alot of pieces that make up this card, but I was really pleased with the result.

"Welcome Little One" Baby Card

I love making baby cards! They're so sweet! This one is for my cousin who just had a little boy last week. Unfortunately, the picture didn't upload as clear as I thought it came out, but I think you can get the basic layout and idea. These colors are perfect for a new baby and the Wild About You set always works! The circle image on the left says "welcome little one" and a baby diaper pin is punched and popped up in the center.
