March Mojo Monday

This past Mojo Monday we did four cards. I really wanted to do a couple of birthday cards and I remembered seeing what I call “the Dresser Card” (thank you Jackie Topa) for the card idea. Then I thought I should also do a masculine card. So here are the two cards that we did.

The next two cards were timely cards for Saint Patty’s Day and Easter. For the St. Patty’s Day card, I used the heart shaped stamp from the Sale-A-Bration Sprinkled Expressions set and the sentiment was from a retired set. KISS, keep it sweet & simple.
I like to think Missy is a bit of the Irish and goes nicely in this photoe with her red hair.
For Easter, I truly loved the simplicity of the Easter Dove single stamp and its wording “He is Risen”. Plus, I wanted to use the wings of the Elegant Bird die (which as I stated before I just love) with the Glitter paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I knew all of these products should be used together and this is my finish product.

My biggest regret is that I don’t know how to take better pictures with my camera. Thanks for stopping by.

Saturday Scrappers - Love Bird Pages

This Scrappers workshop was pages for Valentine’s Day, but with a bit of a twist. I did not go all Lovey Dovey, but I did go to the birds, Love Birds that is. (I know not too witty, but hey I am a stamper not a writer). Starting with two new dies I really love, the Elegant Bird and the Heart Collection Framelits; the four pages we completed were all about the Dies, Framelits, and the Textured Embossing Folders from the current Occasions Mini Catalog.

Along with the dies and embossing folders, I also used a lot of punches, borders and the smaller Sizzlits dies for the butterflies and smaller hearts.  We did not do a lot of stamping with these pages except for using the Take it to Heart and Loving Thoughts stamp sets, also in the mini catalog. Also, the DSP used were previous Stampin’ Up paper that I thought work well together.

Missy was my bird watcher, page holder, photographer's assistant today.
