FS225: Rosigrld & Happy Birthday Sophie G!

This week's featured stamper is Rosemary. Her card {here} was my inspiration. I changed the colors & stamp set, rounded one corner and added a button and thread instead of bling.

This was literally a 2 minute card. The white base was corner rounded on one side, I stamped the sentiment from Inside & Out Birthday in pure poppy (it is getting *SO* dry - I need a reinker!!!). I die cut the butterfly (PTI) with some DCWV designer paper and sponged the edge. I added a button with some bakers thread. The butterfly is attached with a foam square.

Finished! Phew! So simple, and mass producible! Love it!

A super-d-duper Happy 6th Birthday to my Sophie G.

Did you know that the Riley & Sophie G. stamps were named after a little girl named Riley and this little sweetie pie? She is a peach!

stamps: Inside & Out Birthday {PTI}
ink: pure poppy
paper: PTI white, DCWV designer paper
misc: Butterfly die cut (PTI), PTI button & bakers thread, foam square

Enjoy every single moment of today!!!!!!

FS224: PaperInBloom

This week's featured stamper is Carly (aka PaperInBloom). The adorable {Puppy Friend} card in her gallery immediately caught my eye. I decided that it would be cute if I changed it up a bit (colors, stamp set) and here is my version:

I used a caribbean base, but instead of stamping like Carly, I used the swiss dots dry embossing folder. I LOVE IT! I changed the colors to new leaf (PTI) and caribbean (SU!). I stamped the train from train tracks on the select white paper and colored it with copics. I stamped the sentiment (also from Train Tracks) in black and swished some copics across them. The main image is adhered with dimensionals. I used button and twill from PTI in new leaf to complete the card.

stamps: train tracks (PTI)
paper: caribbean (SU!), new leaf, white (PTI)
ink: black, copics
misc: new leaf twill, button, dimensionals, swiss dots folder

Enjoy every single moment of today!!!!!!

FS223: Aimes

She *Aimes* to please with her papercrafting! Aimes really has a fun style and really seems to love Papertrey Ink (although not one of my stamp sets was ever used) - ha ha! I found this cute & simple card {Happy Birthday} and knew it was totally CASE'able. I decided to change the colors, stamp set & add some extras!

First, I started with a cool caribbean base. I don't know why...I guess because it was on my desk and I didn't have the time to clean up my desk before stamping today! I grabbed a stack of DCWV paper and found some coordinating paper (the fun stripes) and added that to the bottom of the card. I used the PTI eyelet lace border with some new leaf paper and added that instead of the ribbon Aimes used. I took my SUPER fun Get to the point stamp set and added a bunch of arrows in random order with hawaiian shores ink.

I used some new leaf ink with the sentiments Happy and Birthday from the Get to the point sentiments stamp set. Finally, I threw three buttons (orange zest, hawaiian shores, pure poppy) in the bottom corner. Fun FUN FUN!!! Why don't you play along this week?

stamps: Get to the point & Get to the point sentiments {Papertrey Ink}
ink: hawaiian shores, new leaf
paper: cool caribbean (SU!), new leaf, DCWV designer paper
misc: buttons (orange zest, hawaiian shores, pure poppy), eyelet lace die

Enjoy every single moment of today!!!!!!

FS222: Reddyisco

First of all, Happy Mother's Day to everyone out there! It is the one day that brings my heart sch joy, because I am able to share it with my mom and my kids!

I love my kids more than the world, they were my greatest gift ever and I am so proud to be their mom. They bring my heart joy, laughter and completeness! Each and every child is so different than the other, and they are so kind, loving and wonderful to me and Todd.

Here we were last weekend at Victoria Joan's First Communion:

In the Lutheran church, the rite of first communion takes place in the 5th grade. Next weekend, Karen will be confirmed. It has been a busy May for us so far! This is our relaxing weekend. We had a swim meet Saturday morning (the older five swim competitively!) and swam really well. It was heartwarming to see Karen, Victoria and Sophie on a relay (with another swimmer on the team). It brought a tear to my eye to see the girls crowd on the edge of the pool cheering on their brother! Moments like that I cherish!

On to this week's featured stamper! This week's featured stamper is Reddyisco (Jo). The card I found was this rich, clean card {1432} with a big red bow! Love it! The textures were awesome. I changed the colors, stamp set and the main cuttlebug folder. Instead of a bow, I used a button with a bakers twine bow. The stamp set I used is Springtime Doodles from Papertrey Ink. The cuttlebug folders (birds & swirls and swiss dots).

Stamps: Springtime doodles (papertrey ink)
Paper: white, hawaiian shores
Ink: black
Misc: Hawaiian shores polka dot ribbon, Hawaiian shores button, bakers twine (black), cuttlebug (swiss dots and birds & swirls), oval punch
