Welcome New Baby

Wednesday night I attended an Occasions Catalog Kick Off Party. That's right the Occasions Catalog premier is right around the corner. You will receive your copy in just a couple of weeks — ordering begins on January 6th. As we were leaving the Catalog Kick Off Party we each received a new stamp set along with our copy of the Occasions Catalog and a Sale-a-Bration Brochure — you guys are going to love this new catalog. See how much I love mine.
The new stamp set we received is called One Tag Fits All — very cute images. Here's a quick card I made yesterday before I left for work.
My boss became a grandpa for the first time. I needed a baby card to go with the gift, so I quickly made one. The card base is Whisper White with a layer of Lullaby DSP. I stamped the "Ducky" with Memento ink and colored with Blendabilities. I stamped the tag with Baked Brown Sugar and punched out with coordinating punch. Then I stamped the words with VersaMark and embossed with White embossing powder. I added a Crisp Cantalope banner and popped the "Ducky" up with dimensionals.

Lego Robot

 Back in early November we had a family birthday party for two of my grandchildren.  My sister,Tina, couldn't be there but she sent cards with special gifts for them.  This is the one of the cards she made.  I love this card.  When the Annual Catalog came out in June I immediately fell in love with this Boys will be Boys stamp set.  I ordered it right away but still have not used it, but I will now.  I LOVE this card — it is so adorable.  Don't you think so?

RobotThe base of the card is Real Red with a layer of Basic Black and Whisper White that has been embossed with the Arrow embossing folder.  The robot was stamped with Memento ink and colored in with Blendabilities and cut out ovals using the Oval Collection Framelits.  Last she added banners using the Brights DSP Stack.  A pretty quick and easy card that really says WOW — love it.

Ornaments for the Tree

I fell in love with this stamp set when I first saw it.  I ordered it and then it sat on the shelf for months.  I just didn't know what to do with it and it seemed to require so much coloring — much too time consuming for a class.  Then I decided to do just a little bit of coloring.  Here is the end result — I really like it. 

Season's Greeting OrnamentThe card base is Whisper White with a layer of Cherry Cobbler.  I stamped the images with VersaMark on a layer of Whisper White and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  I colored the leaves and dots on the ornament with Old Olive Blendabilities and then the center with Cherry Cobbler.  I added a bow tied from Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.  Quite a quick and simple card.
