"Tommy Fishing" Fathers Day Card

I just got this adorable digi stamp from Fresh Brewed Shop Designs called, "Tommy Fishing" and I could hardly wait to color him up and make a card. This card is going to be for my husband for Father's Day! Shhh!
He is very supportive of my card making hobby and admires all of my cards, however, he doesn't read my blog! I colored "Tommy" to look like my husband when he was a young boy. His favorite childhood memories are of all the summers that he spent fishing! This wonderful stamp even looks like my husband did when he was young!
I used SU Garden Green cardstock. The dotted paper is also SU.
Then I paper pieced little Tommy's shirt with a fun orange K&Company paper and used it for a bright background paper.
The ribbon, buttons and bling are all from my stash of treasures!

I needed to make a special "Big Sister" card for one of the little girls in my daycare. She has a new baby brother at home!
When I saw the Stamptacular Sunday, "Pink-A-Licious" challenge, I thought it would work for this card. I struggled a little bit with "not making the carriage blue"! I decided to go with white and I think it works.

I paper pieced the little girls dress, socks and headband with Stampin Up designer paper.
I used my new "MFT" Perfect Petal Trio die cut with the same SU paper and Rose Red to make the flower. The center of the flower is SU.
The background designer paper is K&Company. I love their paper!
I made the butterflies with my Beautiful Wings embosslits Die.

This Sweet'N Sassy "Shining Light" digital Stamp was really fun to color with my Copic Markers. I am not an artist, so I had to play a lot with shading. I added grass, the ocean and a beautiful sunset sky for a back drop. I made this card for my father, who loves the ocean.

The sentiment is from Sweet'N Sassy and I used my SU Designer Label punches.

"Mother's Day Card" for my Mother

I haven't told my mother about my blog yet, so it should be perfectly safe to post this.
My mother loves birds.  She especially likes Blue Birds.  So, when I found this pretty digital stamp with Sweet' N Sassy Stamps, called, "Birds & Roses", I was very excited. 
I pulled up pictures of Blue Birds in my computer gallery to look at while I colored in the birds with my copic markers.
The sentiment is Stampin Up, "Blessed Mother".  The card stock and decorative paper is also from Stampin Up.
The butterflies are made with Stampin Up, "Embosslits Beautiful Wings" and decorated with gem stones.
I cut my colored image out and adhered it to the pink die cut from my large scalloped Nestabilities.
The pink lace, white lace, heart charm, gem stones and ribbon is from my stash of treasures.
I am hoping to enter this card in a few Challenges.  This is totally new territory for me and I'm really excited!
Sweet & Sassy Stamps is having their very first challenge!  This is perfect for me, since this is my very first real challenge as well!

Mother's Day card with Butterflies

Mother's Day is just a week away! 
I made this card using Stampin Up Natural Ivory, Concord Crush and Lovely Lilac.
The main card is Natural Ivory cardstock.
I used my SU Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder with Concord Crush for the second layer.
I added som violet ribbon before glueing this piece down.
Then I stamped the SU Bliss scroll onto some Natural Ivory cs with Lovely Lilac, cut it and rounded the two top corners.
I added a strip of SU purple decorative striped paper to the bottom front.
Then I used my SU scallop edge border on a scrap of violet cardstock.  I added this piece along the
bottom back of my stamped piece.
I added SU Victoria Lace around my stamped image piece starting at the top of the decorative paper.
After I attached this piece with dimentionals, I had lots of fun decorating.
I used my SU Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die for one of  the butterflies.  Then I stamped the pretty butterfly from the Bliss set using the Lovely Lilac and cut it out.  I used the new SU large decorative label punch
to punch out my "Typed and copied sentiment".  (I didn't have a stamp to use for my sentiment.)
Ribbon, flowers, pearls and stones were added to complete my card from my stash of treasures!
This is how it turned out!
