Elmo card

This was the Elmo card I made for my two year old nephew, Liam.  He’s a huge Elmo fan and I’m a huge Liam fan!  Elmo is made with all Stampin Up punches.  The embossing folder is Decorative Dots.  I bet we could make the other Sesame Street characters too.  We’ll see who Liam loves by the time he turns three.  Itty Bitty Banners is such a great set and I love that it has matching framelits called Bitty Banners Framelit Dies.  It so nice to not have to fussy cut around the banner.20140622-201226-72746776.jpg

Mother’s Day…a little late

Here are the cards I made for our mothers.  Even though I’m posting this in June, our Mom’s got them on time.  Steve and I have awesome mothers, and I wanted to make them something special.  I love the Framed Tulips embossing folder.  I even used this on my sister’s wedding invitations.  Unfortunately, it is retired now.  I use the Elegant and Bitty Butterfly punches all the time.  They are a must have for any crafter.20140622-200140-72100821.jpg

On this card I used the Pansy punch and Petite Petals punch which are both current.  I also used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack which is now retired.  Well, which one do you like better?  I hope both our Mothers liked the one they got.20140622-200140-72100509.jpg

Happy Easter

Here is a bunny card I made for my nephew, Liam. I hope he gets it in time. Since he’s only two, I suppose he won’t know the difference if it arrives after Easter.  Do you like the pearl for a tail?

I used the Stampin Up set called, “Eggstra Spectacular”  This set has a really cute lamb image too.  The colors are crumb cake and pool party.  The DSP is from SAB 2014 called Sweet Sorbet.  I think it might be my favorite DSP ever.  I also used the Starburst Framelits from the 2014 Occasions catalog.  The products in this catalog are available through June 1, 2014  The ribbon is 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon which may be the easiest ribbon to tie a bow with.  I hope this ribbon comes in more colors when the new Stampin Up catalog arrives June 1, 2014.

This card idea was CASE’d from Mary Fish.
