Happy St. Patrick's Day

Here is a card that I made for my monthly stamp group as swaps. Since we are meeting on St. Patrick's Day I thought these would be very appropriate.

If you love the stamps used, you better get them while they last! I used two Sale-A-Bration sets on the whole card (see below). For information on how to get these products, click HERE.

I also used a really cool embossing technique in which you assemble your project (the circle with clover) then run it though the die cut machine and kind of mesh it all together. It really looks neat in person!! If you have any questions, please let me know! Thanks for looking!!

**all Stampin' Up!**
Paper: Very Vanillia, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green
Stamps: Bliss (SAB), So Happy for You (SAB), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Accessories: Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Pear Pizzaz poly stitched ribbon, dimensionals
Punches: Modern Label, Word Window, 1 3/8" circle, Heart Small

Elegant Thank You Cards

Ok, so these were probably the easiest set of cards I've ever made. I made these Thank-You's as a gift for my sister. I used Stampin' Up!'s Whisper White cardstock which is my absolute favorite (and not b/c I'm a SU! demo). It is super smooth, stamped images are very even and smooth, and it just feels really, really nice.

The best part is, both of the stamp sets that I used on these cards didn't cost me a thing!!! Yes! Bliss (yellow damask like image) is a 2011 Sale-A-Bration set that you can ONLY get free with a $50 merchandise purchase. Thank You Kindly (sentiment) is a regular catalog set, but is offered as a free option during Sale-A-Bration! Sale-A-Bration promotion is only good through the end of March. If you would like to order these great sets, please click HERE.

If you have any questions or want to order the products to make these wonderful cards, please let me know! Thanks for looking!

Of course I packaged them up nice and pretty!

Bridal Shower Accessories

Here are some of the finishing touches from the bridal shower I hosted for my sister this past weekend! This coming up weekend is the wedding!!! Thank goodness next week is Spring Break and lots of recuperation time for me!! If you have any questions about project materials or how to's, let me know!! Thanks for looking!!!!
This is the drink server that I purchased for $14.95 from Wal-Mart. It comes clear and I decided to 'dress' it up a bit with vinyl and the cricut! This turned out so wonderful and looked really cute on her cake table! We filled it with the orange sherbet punch (orange sherbet and ginger ale) and it was a bit hit!!!

These are the Hershey nugget candies all wrapped up and ready for someone to take home!

This glass block sat on the entry way table as guests signed in for the shower. It was really cute all lit up!

I have another white circle with their last initial to replace the bride one with so it can be used at the wedding reception to hold cards also.
