I decided to try something different this time. So I took on a sketch challenge by Beate I have never done this color combo before but I think it turned out alright. Had fun with this one. The stamp set used for this was "Birthday Whimsy" by stampin up and I used the cuttlebug for the backround. The card size is 5x5.

My son who is turning 6 really wanted a transformer b-day party, so I had to figure out a design for it. I looked everywhere online for some kind of transformer stamp and of course I couldn't find one! I ended up having to make my own. I stamped the image with versamark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. The scratches on the inside of the card and on the box is stamped with the "sanded" backround stamp from stampin up. I just got it and it is quickly becomming one of my favorites! The favor is a 2 1/2" square box designed after the allspark cube. If you have seen the Transformers movie than you know what I am talking about. I will probably fill them with candy and have the kids go on a treasure hunt to find them(maybe).
This is the stamp that I made for the invite. Its made out of foam. I found an image in google and I printed it out. I than cut out the image and traced it onto foam and glued the peices onto another piece of foam. The stamp doesn't look all that pretty but it works really well.

For my card group this month we decided to make mothers day cards. As you can tell I just can't get enough of using transparency sheets. I have been dying to make a card out of it. The butterflies are stamped with white craft ink on vellum and than embossed. I got the butterfly stamp from Joanns $ section. The "Cherish" and flourish stamp is from the Baroque Motifs set from Stampin up. The"Happy Mothers day" is also stampin up but it was borrowed so I'm not sure what set it belongs to.

My friend is throwing a baby shower and wanted to do a pink and yellow ducky theme. What a fun theme! I was glad because I had this duck stamp that I bought at walmart over a year ago and had never used it. So I was very happy to put it to use. The "your invited" stamp was an acrylic stamp set from Micheals $1 stamp section. We are making favors to match the card. I will post that later.

I made this basket for my card group ladies. I had this idea in my head and was hoping it would work out. I love it when things turn out exactly how I invisioned. Well almost, my original basket had a paper strap. I definantly like the ribbon better. Isn't this bunny soooo cute? The stamp set I used is "Bunny Hugs" from Stampin up. I got it last spring in their mini catalog and glad that I did because they don't sell this set anymore. The size of this basket is 2 1/2" square. I used my cricut machine to cut out the grass and flowers.
