Jasmyne's Birthday

I made this card for niece Jasmyne. She's a teenager and her birthday is coming up in early april and I knew she would think this pure innocence image is adorable. This is my first ever digital stamp and I just loved it. It was so easy. I ordered it from the Illustrator Heather Ellis. She has the cutest images and they are a great bargain. I used a cuttlebug folder for my embossed layer and my DP is from the cosmo cricket pixie-liscious paper pad. I have used this little book of paper so many times. It's one of my favorites. I used all stampin up cardstock except for the yellow layer. It is gina k designs PL cardstock in lemondrop. I colored my image with copic markers. I won't list all the colors I used, but I will tell you that the skin colors were E11 and E13. The punch was a new EK success chain punch I bought this weekend. I added the flowers and the button and some embroidery string tied in a bow. I really wanted to use bakers twine but I just ordered it and it hasnt arrived yet. I made this card based on the two following challenges:

Mother's day

Today I made a card for my mom. She's very old fashioned and not into computers so I don't think she'll look at this blog. I used a new stamp set I just got from stampin up called Blessed Mother. Its a small set with only four stamps but I just love it. I used Gina K designs Pure Luxury Card Stock in black onyx.  I used Bo bunny's crush collection DP. I know that it supposed to be valentine's paper but it just worked perfectly on my mothers day card. Don't you think? I used Spellbinders nestabilities lacey circles for the black circle die-cut. I used offray sheer ribbon and used my bow-easy to make the bow. The flower is a button I picked shopping along the way somewhere, probably joann's. I finished it off with some berry red pearl bling.  I'm going to enter this card in a few challenges

Easter Wishes

Today was such a beautiful day. It was 60 degrees and sunny. I decided to make an Easter card. I used all Stampin up supplies on this card. I made a 4.25 x 5.5 card. I put down the green layer of patterned paper and then cut the pink piece the same size and sliced it in the middle. I punched a strip of paper with my border punch and glued it to the pink piece and glued both down to the green piece. I layered the second green and pink panel(with border) and glued it down. Next I added the blue and green panel. I stamped my sentiment in olive green vivid ink. The stamp is from Impression Obsession. Next I used the two step bird punch to punch my bird and branches. I glued everything down and added some pearls across the bottom and one to the bird for his eye. I made this card for a few challenges:
