Four cards for you!

This sweet baby card was made for my cousin.  I love the colour combination and the elephant paper; it says "baby" without being pastel or cutesy. 

Supplies:  All supplies listed are from Stampin' Up.
Cardstock:  Close to Cocoa, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Lucky Limeade.
Embellishments:  Chocolate Chip scalloped ribbon; So Saffron button; "Congratulations" stamp from Itty Bitty Banners; banner diecut from Bitty Banners Framelits.  The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up as well, but it's retired and I have NO idea what collection it came from.

I made this little treat holder for my husband and loaded it with cinnamon hearts.  I used this tutorial to create a sliding door; that way, the candy can be removed without ripping apart the card.  The "love" tag on the right side is the pull tab for the door.  Clever!  

Supplies:  All supplies listed are from Stampin' Up.
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, and Pool Party.
Stamps:  Sweet Centers (heart and "I <3 and="and" love="love" p="p" tags="tags" tiny="tiny" you="you">
Miscellaneous:  Treat Cups, Circle punch (inside the treat cup), small tag punch (for the "love" tag.) 

I have a soft spot for scallops; this scalloped-front square thank you card is REALLY easy with the help of a die cut. 

Cardstock:  Wisteria Wonder, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White from Stampin' Up.  Sage green from Bazzil.
Stamps:  Vase from "Button Buddies," Thank You from "Short & Sweet," both by Stampin' Up. 
Embellishments:  Flower buttons by Stampin' Up; scalloped square by Sizzix; banner die cut from Stampin' Up (Bitty Banners Framelits); clear rhinestones (in flower centres) by Recollections.

This last photo really doesn't do the card justice; it is SO cute in person!  I love the shaker frames to add dimension and a little bit of sparkle without a huge mess! 

Cardstock:  Pool Party and Whisper White by Stampin' Up.
Stamp:  Button Buddies by Stampin' Up.
Ribbon:  Twine from Stampin' Up; chocolate ribbon salvaged from cupcake packaging! 
Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug
Glitter: Dazzling Diamonds by Stampin' Up. 
Ink:  Pool Party and Close To Cocoa by Stampin' Up. 
Transparency from office supply.  

Thanks for stopping in!  I've got a great cupcake shadow box to share - check back soon!  

Father's Day, pt. 2

Well, I've been completely delinquent about posting... sorry about that.  Maybe a certain someone will stop nagging me now (cough, cough, ALLISON!)

Here's the second of the father's day cards I made this year - this was from my son, for my husband.

Cardstock - Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy from Stampin' Up.
Paper - October Afternoon (I *think* this is from the Campfire collection.)
Brads - Recollections.
Embossing folder - Sizzix for Stampin' Up.
Tie - yeah, I cut that bad boy by myself!  :)

More to come!  I've got lots of catching up to do!
