Soft Sky Summer Silhouette

I really liked the card I saw over on Debbie's Designs  so I pretty much copied the scene as best I could but then added a little of my own touch with the birds from the Up, Up, and Away Stampin Up stamp set which is about to retire.

Stamps: Summer Silhouettes
CS:  Whisper White, Wild Wasabi (peeking out under the scalloped edges)
Ink: Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Pool Party Ribbon, Pearls, Large Scallop Edgelit and one of the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder Borders

Have a great day and thanks for visiting today.

Bloomin' Bouquet

I made this Bloomin' Bouquet for my Mom for Mother's Day.  I hope she likes it.  I wanted something unbreakable for her but couldn't find what I wanted so instead I found these little glass containers at my local craft store.   I put a small piece of styrofoam in the bottom to hold the stems.  To cover up the styrofoam I filled the bottom with a lot of my retired SU buttons.  Added some butterflies and ribbon and done!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy Mother's Day!

Vintage Box

This box was made for a friend's 65th birthday!  Inside there were 65 crisp new $1 bills!  The box was cut out on my e-cutter.  To decorate it I used Very Vanilla and Perfect Plum cs, SU's new butterfly punches, flower trim and lace, an antique brad and a retired vintage round tag stamped with a butterfly. There are SU pearls on the butterflies.  The Perfect Plum cs was embossed with the lacy brocade embossing folder and sanded a little bit for texture.  I love how the box turned out and my friend loved it as well (especially the inside!)

Thanks for stopping in today.
