April to June Projects

It's been a long time since I have posted projects of my own. Here are a few cards that I recently made for family members and my dear friend, Rhonda.

I made these butterfly cards for my daughters and Rhonda:

My oldest daughter loved her Easter card so much she wanted me to make a similar insert for the music box she purchased for her friend's wedding gift:

Stampin' Bunco Projects Part III

Here are the last of the projects I made at Stampin' Bunco:

Stampin' Bunco Projects Part II

These were my three favorite projects of the day:

Stampin' Bunco Projects Part I

I thought this was a fun little card. I gave it to my daughter to give to her friend at her birthday party this past Sunday. I thought it might be a little juvenile for an 11 year old girl but they loved it!

This card was made with one of my favorite sets from the mini catalog, Valentine Define:

This card was made using some free Sale-a-bration items:

These are the door prizes I won. The owl cone was a thank you gift.

I went to an all-day event in Lynnwood, WA. These are some of the projects that were on display. Each of these first three were made using the petal cone die.

These cards were also on display:

New Baby and Anniversary Cards

I have two cards to share with you today. My niece arrived over a month ago and my anniversary is coming up in October. I'm not sure if I'll actually give this card to my husband as it is a bit too feminine. But other than that, I really like how it turned out:

The anniversary card uses the Level 3 hostess set, Playful Pieces. The colors are Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, and Rose Red.

The next card uses a retired set from last year's catalog called Out of the Box. It didn't seem to be very popular but I thought it was really cute. Plus, I've always had a thing for the Jack-in-the-box:

For the baby card I used retired DSP, Razzleberry Lemonade along with Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, and Melon Mambo.

A Graduation Card for my Nephew

I don't usually make or post cards with non Stampin' Up! product but I needed a graduation card in a pinch and don't own any graduation sets. So what was an easy solution?.... I purchased the Go Graduate Plus stampbrush set for My Digital Studio! And in case you didn't know it, all MDS image files can be used with other photo editing software programs such as Photo Shop.

With no time to send the project off for professional printing and my printer not being configured for Stampin' Up! colors, I just printed some sentiments, added some stickers bought from my local scrapbook store, and wallah!

To give the card a personal touch, I used the school's colors: black, silver, and purple. The graduate plays in the school's jazz band as well as with a professional group off campus. He's a very talented young man and we are quite proud of him. So for one more personal touch, I added a guitar sticker on the inside. (I'm really wishing I owned the stamp, Extreme Guitar) Guess what's going back on my wish list.

Thanks for looking,
