I was a busy girl....

Hi blogging friends....Well yesterday was the first day of school and I hit the craft room. I want to share the five cards that I made. We have a few birthdays and events coming up in our family. I made a beautiful card for my hubs for our anniversary, but I took it work so he wouldn't get a glimpse of it. I will take a photo soon for a share.

Here we go....

This card is made with the Stampin' Up NEW In Colors (Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede), Classy & Fabulous Stamp Set, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, Sizzix Butterlies, Sizzix Top Note Die, 5/8 White Satin Ribbon.

The inside sentiment says "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous~Coco Chanel" you

A birthday card for my father in law. I used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Set Elements of Time, Stampin' Up Set Wonderful Favorites, Spellbinders Classic Circle Set and Large Pinking Circles dies, Cuttlebug Houndstooth Embossing Folder, Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip and So Saffon cardstock.

This is for a co-workers wedding. All products are Stampin' Up. Basic Black, Whisper White and Going Gray cardstock and ink. Pearls from the Pretties Kit. This inside sentiment is from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous new stamp set Just Thoughts, " Enjoy the Journey".

This card is for my daughter Jenna's birthday September 2nd. I used the stamps from Stampin' Up's Cheep Talk and A Little Birdie Told Me Set. The "Oh Snap!" stamp is from the Unity Stamp Companies August Kit of the Month Set. Stampin' Up Cardstock in Perfect Plem, Apricot Appeal, Old Olive and Whisper White, 5/8 inch White Satin Ribbon, Stampin' Up's scalloped edge punch, and Rangers Stickles, Lime Green, Lavender and Diamond.

One more to go....

I made this card because I was dying to use the Spellbinders new Pendent Die Fleur de Lis. I was slightly disappointed in how difficult it was to use. The die cut paper did not want to release from the die reluctantly. It took some work and swearing. But, is the finished product. I used Stampin' Up new In Colors once again, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, and Whisper White cardstock and ink. Stamps from Stampin' Up, Three Little Words and En Francais. Ranger Stickles Aqua, and Cinnamon, Flowers are Close To My Heart.
Thank you for letting me share my new cards with you!! I will be back very soon, I promise.
