Here are a few designs I came up with for a rehearsal dinner invitation. The theme was black and white polka dots or green and black polka dots. I love the martini theme since the restaurant is known for their martini bar. I think these green polka dot ones are fun! The bride and groom design was made using the Cricut cartridge "Stretch your Imagination". Just a simple design with a little glitter to glam it up! Now let's see what the bride thinks of them!

I found this darling "peeps" stamp almost two years ago at a stamp convention (and never used it until now). The stamp is from Savvy stamps. I stamped the peeps with versamark on yellow paper and embossed them with yellow embossing glitter (also found at the stamping convention). The decorated paper came from a paper pack from Target and the pink satin ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. TFL!

Here is a card design for an upcoming workshop I am doing next weekend. I found the ribbon at Hobby Lobby and loved the color combo. One side of the ribbon coordinates with the Baja Blue and other side matches Chocolate Chip. The set I used for this card is Fifth Avenue (Stampin' Up). The colors I used are Kiwi Kiss, Baja Blue, and Chocolate Chip (all Stampin' Up). The ribbon is very thick and doesn't not very well. So I gave up on the knot and added a cutout flower with a button center (Stampin' Up).

Here is a card I made for my last Stamp-a-stack class. I used the set Pinch Proof (Stampin' Up). The circles were punched using the Marvy punches. The gold ribbon was from Stampin' Up. The color of cardstock and ink are Wild Wasabi (retired Stampin' Up). Orange glitter glue for the leprechaun's beard and gold glitter glue around the scallop circle are called Stickles from Ranger.

I went to a baby shower last weekend and I made the "mommy to be" some packages of baby cards and a baby album. I put them in a diaper bag that was brown with pink ribbon trim. The cards all had a brown, pink and green theme. Here are two of the card ideas that I included in the bag. The teddy bear card was made with the set Bundle of Joy (Stampin' Up). The dog card was made using a sizzix die and pattern paper. Both cards have a texured background using swiss dots embossing folder(Cuddlebug), and both cards have a border made with jumbo scallop scissors (Provo Craft).

Here are a few pictures of a wedding shower invitation that I am working on. I made a pink pocket card by stitching the sides of the cardstock together. A darker pink flower with clear diamond gem centers and a lace flower sticker border decorate the front. There is a light caramel diamond background under the flowers. The pull-out tag has the information for the invite on it.
