Baby Time!

No no no; no babies for me! But everyone around me seems to be having or adopting them! So I finally whipped up some cards with my new Nursery Necessities stamp set! I think I used a sketch for the layout, but I can't remember where I found it!

Using markers, I stamped the boat twice. I cut one out, then placed it on top of the other one using Stampin' Dimensionals for some "pop"!

Happy Anniversary :)

Tomorrow is a super exciting day! First of all, it's my two year anniversary! WOW that is a long time and I guess we don't qualify as newlyweds anymore! The second exciting thing is that I'm going to the Stampin' Up! Convention for the first time!!! Yeah I know, leaving on my anniversary... luckily my hubby has finally realized how much I love stamping and is ok with it! :)

Stacey put up her second Curtain Call Color Challenge yesterday, and I knew if I didn't make something today, I wouldn't be able to by the deadline because I'll be in Utah all week! Plus like usual I procrastinated making an anniversary card, so ta-da!

I made a little "secret message" that pulls up from behind the birds. Hehe this card was just simple and fun!

Monochromatic Christmas

I was a little skeptical about Stacey's very first Curtain Call Color Challenge. But I think I pulled the colors together quite nicely. Looking at this card makes me think of the song "Silent Night." It's just so peaceful and serene. I popped up a few of the snowflakes on dimensionals to give it depth. Also, all the stamped images were embossed in white.

The new Christmas Punch set is so awesome - every single image fits into a Stampin' Up! punch! The only way to get this set is to host a qualifying workshop. Book one today to get this set early enough to make those Christmas cards!
