Mouthwatering Swap

Hi! Today's card is one that I did a while ago for a swap but I don't think I ever shared it on here. I just love the ice cream come from the Mouthwatering set. Even more so now since ice cream has been my big weakness lately. :) Anyway, this set is from the Occasions mini however, it may still live on in the new catalog (wink, wink)! I really think this is a fun and different set to use for birthdays. Or really whatever occasion you would like. I actually stamped the ice cream cone 4 different times in Chocolate Chip, Lucky Limeade, Tempting Turquoise and Real Red and then cut out the different parts and layered them. It was a little time consuming to cut them but the end result is worth it. I then layered the ice cream on one of the Labels Collections Framelits die and added some rhinestones. I used a piece of DSP from the Summer Smooches collection. LOVE this DSP also!!! The colors are so bright and fun! Then I added a strip of Daffodil Delight and stamped the sentiment from Friendly Phrases. Thanks for looking!! Have a great afternoon!

Stamps: Mouthwatering, Friendly Phrases
Paper: Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Summer Smooches DSP

Bright Blossoms - Mother's Day

Happy Friday!! Here is the other card that I did for mother's day. I used the Bright Blossoms set and randomly stamped the various images from the set in different colors. Then I used the music notes wheel in Daffodil Delight on top of the flowers. This came out a little too dark for my liking. I think I should have rolled it on scrap paper first so the yellow would have been a little lighter. Oh well. Then I ran this piece through the Big Shot with the Lattice Texture embossing folder. This was then layered on Peach Parfait and Pool Party cardstock. I used MDS again for the sentiment. This sentiment is also from the brush set, "Mom You're the Bomb". Then I added some ribbon and rhinestones and that's it! Enjoy! Have a great weekend!

Fabulous Florets - Mother's Day

Hello! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I took an extra day this weekend to get more things done around the house and to relax a little. We put a few of our baby things together and then took a break and went to the movies to see The Avengers in 3D. It was a pretty good movie. And in between all the baby stuff, I did have some time to make a couple of cards. With mother's daoy right around the corner, I needed to get 2 cards done for this weekend. The first card I made uses Fabulous Florets. I stamped the flowers in Stazon and then colored them in with markers and blender pens. I really like these colors together. I'm glad that these In Colors are still around for another year!! The DSP is from the Sweet Shop collection. The sentiment is from the MDS download "Mom You're the Bomb". All I did was scale the sentiment to the size I wanted in MDS, printed it out and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch. Super easy! Behind the label, I cut out the smallest shape from the Labels Collection Framelits die. Then I added some ribbon and a couple of pearls. I'm not sure if this is going to my mom or my mother in law but I hope they like it. I will show you the other card I did this week. Thanks for stopping by.
