You're A Good Egg

I'm continuing to work on my Easter cards that I need both to mail out and to sell at our church Easter Sale.
My first card is a clean and simple design -  I adhered strips of patterned paper to a white card stock panel - then cut it with a stitched mat rectangle die and layered it over a white card stock base - easy peasy!  And it looks so Easter/Springy with the pretty papers!  The only stamping on this is the Happy Easter from the Spring Baskets set by Waltzingmouse in the bottom corner.  Then I just added some coordinated colored sequins.
I used the sketch from this week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge.
My second card is a little more involved - with a patterned paper panel, a tag and some layered stampings.  The stamps are from A Good Egg by Waltzingmouse.  I used the cut files for this set to stamp the egg and banner on.  I cut the tag with Tag Sale #5 die from PTI
For my card design I used the Freshly Made Sketch

I chose my colors from the Color Throwdown challenge

You Make Me Smile

Well, we're three days into the New Year, we got at least 18" of snow last night in the first storm of the year  and I have a simple card to share that I made for two challenges!

The stamps are from Waltzingmouse - Pic-Nic Patterns, Simple Sprig and Compact Sentiments Part 2.
The challenges are:  
Is anyone else out there glad to see 2013 go??  I didn't have a bad year but it was something about the number 2013 -  I had a lot of trouble writing it all year-  I'm not superstitious - not sure what it was -  but I'm really glad we have moved on to 2014!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Christmas Babies

A friend at church asked me if I could make some Christmas cards for 3 baby girls in her life.  So I started going through all my Christmas stamps to see what inspired me as cute for baby girls!

My card for 3 year old Chloe was inspired by the Cas-ology Cue Card: Ribbon challenge.
I just love this little gingerbread girl from Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy - one of the first Waltzingmouse stamp sets.  I stamped her in Picked Raspberry Distress ink, colored her with a Copic and added a little gingham ribbon bow to the top of her outfit..  The sentiment is from the same set.  I stamped Chloe using the Victorian Alphabet and drew the top and bottom framing lines using a Micron Pen.

Here's what I stamped on the inside of Chloe's card.  I just love this 'You're Yummy' sentiment as I find most babies to be quite yummy!
My next cards - for Emma and Ava celebrating their FIRST Christmas -  are the same, as they are going to different families.  My design was inspired by this week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge which is a sketch.
I used three Waltzingmouse Sets on this card - Twas the Night Before Christmas, Around Christmastime, and Victorian Alphabet.  I sponged the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  I popped the Santa circle up on foam dots.  The names are stamped on vellum attached with sparkle brads.

Here's what I stamped on the inside of these cards.  Stamps from Twas the Night Before Christmas.
and here are the two together
