Bobbi's Bridal Shower

Today I'm going to a bridal shower for my nephew's fiance', Bobbi.  Once again, the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set comes to the rescue.  Seriously, one of my favorite stamp sets because it has every sentiment I need!  I used the banner stamp from Bloomin' Love to showcase my sentiment (doesn't it fix perfectly).  The heart from the Bloomin' Heart thinlits can be used to weddings too (not just for Valentines).  From from dsp stash, I pulled out the silver fancy foil designer vellum.  Since you can see through the vellum, I put small glue dots behind the silver hearts to adhere it to my cardstock.  Voila', a beautiful shower card for a sweet young woman.  Welcome to the family!

Stamp set: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Bloomin' Love
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Silver Fancy Foil designer vellum, Melon Mambo patterned dsp

Pierce Gets Baptized

One of my great nephews, Pierce, turned 8 this week and was baptized today.  Sunbeam Stamps is a company that sells LDS themed stamps; so I used this one about Scriptures.  I dipped into my paper stash and found some scraps of Baja Breeze to use.  It's a simple card since an 8 year old boy isn't into fancy cards yet.

Cardstock: Whisper White and Baja Breeze dsp

TSOT 354

I needed another western themed birthday card this week for one of my nieces.  I chose to use this week's Try Stampin on Tuesday's sketch challenge-354.  There was the optional theme for metallic which I used to my metallic star accessories.  The dsp is from BoBunny Prairie Chic.  Yes, I'm a dsp hoarder!  One of my resolutions this year was to use more of my dsp stash.

I like to dress up the inside of my cards and I also stamped the cowboy hat from the Out West set on the envelope.  The whole ensemble looks very western.  I'm sure my cowgirl niece will love her birthday card.

Here's the sketch:

This is my card:

Stamp Set: Sincere Salutations, Out West
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Naturals Ivory, Soft Suede Wild Wasabi and Prairie Chic dsp (BoBunny)
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Big Shot, magnetic platform, Stitched Circle framelits, metallic enamel shapes, dimensionals, sponge

Fab Fri 129

On to another sketch challenge, Fab Friday-129.  Once again, we could change the shape of the focal image.  I needed a birthday card for a great nephew this coming week.  He lives on a ranch so this stamp set is perfect for him.  I tried to use a lot of the stamps from the set on the outside and inside of the card.  I decided to dive into my stash of designer series paper to dress things up a bit. 

Here's the sketch:

FMS 320

This week's sketch challenge from Freshly made sketches-320 is another birthday card for a cute young lady that is turning ten next week.  We could change up the focal image from hearts to any shape we wanted; I picked butterflies.  There are lots of butterflies for this card, the focal image has two die cut butterflies and the background of Soft Sky cardstock was running through the Big Shot with the Butterflies TIEF.  The only stamping I did was the sentiment.

Here's the sketch:
