Just wanted to show everyone my July Spotlight card I made for Kitty Bee Designs using their adorable ladybug image called Love Bug Baby which can be purchased in their Etsy shop!

It's nice to have a few baby cards on hand. Especially one that isn't gender specific.  Besides the digital image, I card also used the following products to complete it.

American Crafts - Crimson Paper Pad DP
SU - Basic Black card stock
MFT - Baby's Bib Die-namics
MFT - Baby Onesie Stamp Set (welcome greeting)
1/4" Black plaid ribbon
Copics - Various colors
Red enamel dot

I think with very little change, this could be an awesome invitation for a baby shower or invitation for a little one's 1st birthday party.

Until next time...

This is a perfect image for making a spring card! The card is being made for a new stamping friend who is also anxiously looking forward to some good weather now that spring is here.
This beautiful image is called Jam Jars by All Dressed Up. Using a white card base, I added DP by MFT from the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Pastels collection. The pretty peach card stock around the image panel is also by MFT and called Peach Bellini. MFT Die-namics used were Horizontal Stitched Strips, Pierced Rectangle STAX and Pierced Circles STAX. Prismacolor pencils were used for coloring the image and Hero Arts makes the little greeting. To finish off my card, I made a bow using a piece of matching 3/8" ribbon.

Until next time...

I'm here today to show you my very first ECLIPSE CARD. These are really popular right now and I really wanted to try to make one. There are LOTS of tutorial videos out there on how to make them.
I really like the looks of the eclipse. The most popular are ones made using letters of the alphabet like mine. But I've also seen some really nice cards where the eclipse was done with shapes instead. I plan on trying that out too.
Here's a quick run down of what I used to make my card...

SU - Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Taken with Teal, Kiwi Kiss card stock
My Minds Eye - DP from the Dolled Up collection
MFT - Big Thanks Die-namic
MFT - Upsy Daisy Die-namic

Every so often I like to find an older or retired stamp set that hasn't seen ink in quite awhile and ink it up. There are so many great sets that have been retired over the years that I always enjoy using them again. This set is called A Tree for all Seasons by Stampin' UP! I love how the first image is a tree in the spring, then that same tree in summer, fall, and winter.

Here are the other products that were used to make this card.
Spellbinders - Classic Squares dies
MFT -  Blueprints 3 Die-namics
MFT - Stitched Square Scallop Edge Frames
SU Garden Green card stock
