Best Wishes

I played off the fancy sentiment to come up with this card.
Sentiment from Stampin' Up
Border punch (love it!) from Martha Stewart
Pearls from SU
Misc ribbon

Thinking of you

Excuse the angle of the picture, was trying to get the embossing of the birds on a wire to show up.
First time using it and it is a striking embossing border folder.

Sentiment from Stampin Up

It's Your Day

Simple black and white card
Black card stock border punch from SU
Embossing Swiss Dot from Cuttlebug
Stamp image from SU as well as the sentiment


After a bunch of scrap pieces leftover, I created this card from a similar card I saw in a very old card magazine.
The butterflies are raised on foam, rhinestone from SU as well as the sentiment

Happy Retirement - Red White and Blue

This came about after I punched out the blue star from the card stock and used it on a previous card... got to thinking that I could make a patriotic card and it turned into this Happy Retirement card.
Sentiment from Stampin' Up

For you note card

The base card stock is from SU, very subtle yellow (sorry bad with the names they call the colors)
I stamped the hummingbird on textured cs to get the ripple effect as if it was in flight.
Sentiment and bird from SU as wells as the pearls

Bird note cards

I love the back ground papers I used, subtle and light for a sweet note or so.
The flower and bird punch are from Stampin Up
The Embossing folder is from Cuttlebug

Father's Day card

I kept this simple but wanted to add in a left over scrap of gold cardstock I had so used the retired tab punch from Stampin Up and I was told it resembled a wallet... hmmm.. kind of does.

Mother's Day card

Made this with a large border punch from Marta Stewart and the sentiment is from SU. Butterfly and Rhinestone also from SU

Wedding shower cards

I was commissioned to make a couple cards for my sister's friend.
She asked for Gold, light green and rose colored cards.

 The above picture is the inside to the card below. It opens up to a three fold for sentiment writing.
