Hoo Hoo – Who Am I?

Owl 1
I love the new Two-Step Owl Punch!  Here is a birthday card I made for a friend using the distressed Texturz Plate to give me a wood feeling.  I used Taken with Teal, Peach Parfait and retired Close to Cocoa card stock along with a bit of Marina Mist 5/8” satin ribbon.

Owl Stamp Camp  

This next owl card is a sample of what we will be doing for our Punch-A-Bunch stamp camp on September 10th and 11th.  Actually, this is the same format used for the owl card daughter Debbi and I did at Stampin’ Up Conventional earlier this month.  I used the new Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Wild Wasabi card stock and retired designer series paper.  I added a tiny pearl to the Wild Wasabi arch image on the card insert.

Pink OwlAnother sample of the owl card we will be doing for September Punch-A-Bunch Stamp Camp.  I used retired card stock – Ballet Blue and designer series paper.  Note the tiny pearl earrings Miss Owl is wearing!  The Two-Step Owl Punch is $16.95 and can be used for any season!

Christening Card

Christening Dress_1

My husband’s niece recently had a baby girl and we were invited to the family Christening last weekend.  I had lent my baby stamps to a friend, so I couldn’t use my standard Christening dress stamp.  This is what I came up with using the Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Pretty in Pink card stock, Vellum, pink gingham ribbon and a few rhinestones.  This was the first time I have tried a project such as this.

 

Christening Dress Back This is the back of the card.  I added a white skirt which, as you can see, is a bit crooked.  I added a line of Dazzling Diamonds at the joining point. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chistening Dress Inside

Finally, the message (again crooked)!  I did not have a message appropriate for a Christening, so I went to the computer and printed a message on Vellum.  I like the Vellum and the color of the card

Hydreangea work shop 3 I absolutely love the “Because I Care” Stampin’ Up hostess stamp set found on page 11 in the 2010 Idea Book and Catalog.  We used this stamp set for a home workshop in July and the crafters made the card and a matching bookmark.  This card can be used for any occasion and is beautiful in shades of pink as I used here, as well as shades of blues and shades of lavender.

Family Birthday Cards

Debbie and I created some birthday cards this past weekend and I wanted to share them with you.

 

McKaylas bdt card  Isn’t this card darling?  Debbie created this card for her second cousin’s upcoming second birthday.  This is done all with punches!  I love the rhinestones in her tiara and the glitter on her wings.  The little curls are punched from the “string” of a balloon punch!  Great card for a perfect little girl!

 

 

 

Deb's brother card Happy Birthday to Debbi’s brother, Russ!  When he was a teenager, Russ wore only black, gray, silver and white.  His room was limited to black, gray, silver and white.  With this in mind, Debbi created a masculine card that is black, gray, silver and white.  Thanks to the Big Shot, a Texturz plate and Quick Kutz metal sheets, Debbi was able to add silver highlights to her brother’s card.

 

Russ bdt card 2This was my card for Russ.  I had an idea in mind, but as Debbi had taken all the punches to prepare for our upcoming Punch-a-Bunch Stamp Camp on September 10th and 11th, I was “punchless!”  However, I found the new large scallop circle punch she had left, and I was able to use that to create my interest point.  I used one of the retired silver brads in the center to help carry the silver theme through.  5/8” gray satin ribbon with an overlay of the new 1/8 taffeta ribbon finished off my color scheme.  Happy Birthday Russ!
