Baby Card ~ Welcome {3rd Post}

I have a little baby card to share.
I tried to keep it CAS by stamping the giraffe straight 
on my hand cut banner then adding just a little color.
The sentiment is a simple but cute die cut.
To finish off I embossed the background for a little texture.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Giraffe from the Zoo Crew stamp set from Paper Smooches.
*Sentiment cut using the Welcome Word die from Paper Smooches.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder from Provo craft.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.
*R83 marker from Copic.

May your day always be filled with love.

Love/Valentine Card ~ Heart Beats {1st Post}

I've been having fun playing with my embossing powders.

To finish up I added the sentiment to the corner.

Easter Card ~ Little Chickie {1st Post}

I have a little Easter chick to share today.
Each year the kindergarten teachers at our school hatch chick eggs in class.
This little guy reminds me of the children's excitement seeing them hatch.
First I inked up my embossing folder to create my dot background.
Next I die cut the circle shaker window and backed it with acetate.
I wanted the chick to pop so I backed the window with pink.
Then I framed the polka dot panel with a little yellow accent.
To finish off I added a little Easter sentiment.
