More to share

This last couple of weeks have been so full of birthdays.  Here is the card and gift box I created for my Mum's birthday last week.
I used crepe paper to create the ruffled pendant on the card and box.

The bottom was made in the new In Color from Stampin' Up called Pink Pirouette.  It's gorgeous and as a pure pink girl I am lovin' it.  
The top was created from acetate and I added brown ric-rac around the sides.
Here I used my favourite SU set for the heart.  I embossed it in white embossing powder on the Pink Pirouette cardstock.  The background paper is from DCWV paper pad called "The Sweet Stack".  Gorgeous papers with cupcakes etc.

Thanks for stopping by.

Baby Cards

I bought the cheapest little set of acrylic stamps from Target recently, convinced that they would be no good (I mean $3.99 - how cheap!!).  But they are great.   Here is the result:
I love that little vintage pram.  So cute.

Mr Bot

Samuel had a birthday party to go to today and I had to whip up a card in a hurry.  After sending him to the wrapping paper drawer to pick some paper for the present, I was inspired to create this:
I don't normally like doing paper piecing, but this came together really fast and seemed to be appropriate.  See the wrapping paper and the little red guy up in the top corner and on the right hand side.  He's my inspiration.

I shall name him "Mr Bot"  :)

Happy Birthday

I created this signature album for my girl friends birthday last week from some of the newest Kaiser papers.  Here is her matching card:

I just love black and grey together.  Very sophisticated don't you think?  While I was in the swing of it I decided to create a whole set.  I just couldn't stop.
