30 for Her 30th

“30 Cards for her 30th Birthday” he said. I received an order from a friend for his girlfriend Jill. I never thought that making that many cards in a two week period would have been possible! It was such a great challenge. I had a list of things she likes and enjoys then went for it.  I honestly think I  do my best work when I am given specific requests, especially thematic ones.

I used a mix of collections, embellishments, stamp sets and trim for the cards. I hope you enjoy!

A Birthday Card for Me!

Well, my mom is on a roll. Here is a whimsical and inspiring card she made for my birthday. I just love the stamp work here as well as the monochromatic theme.

Easter crafts begin!

So, I wanted to make some treat bags for my co-workers and others and thought I would use some special chocolate this year, I decided on Lindor Truffles, Limited Edition Spring variety. I had some baggies and the perfect stamps to use, all I needed was to pick up some basket filler, patterned paper and I was good to go.

I stamped the basket images and used the tiniest stamps to”decorate” the eggs, cut them out and added some glitz to them. I popped them up on the oval/scalloped die cut for some dimension. Can’t wait to give these to my team!
