Welcome Baby Card

One of my co-workers is expecting in early December. All the ladies in the office are planning on having a "shower" for her next week. I pulled this card together to accompany a group gift! I purchased the adorable Doodle Beans Baby Laundry-Boy digital stamp and I had to print it out and trace over it, since the mom to be doesn't know if the baby is a boy or girl and I didn't want to include the car image on the card (I really hope that tracing a digital stamp and omitting the car on the onesie in this case is considered within the rules of the illustrator).


Paper: CTMH - White Daisy CS, Goldrush CS, Sweet Leaf CS; Little Yellow Bicycle - Patterned Paper
Stamps: Doodle Beans Baby Laundry - Boy Digital Stamp, CTMH - Childhood, Random Thoughts
Inks: Copic Markers, Goldrush, Twilight, Black
Other: Sand paper (3M), CTMH - Sponge, Ranger Ink - Diamond Stickles

Mojo Monday 108 Christmas Card

Wow, it is Monday evening and I've had time to play with my stamps and the Mojo Monday sketch for this week already - gotta love a holiday (it is the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday today). Here is my take on the Mojo Monday sketch this week. My card uses one of my favourite CTMH paper kits - Aspen and the adorable Snow Friends stamp set... I also pulled out a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders to add some dimension to the card.
Here is the sketch this week:

Here is my card:

Supplies (all supplies CTMH unless otherwise noted):
• Paper: Aspen Level 2 My Reflections Kit
• Stamps: Snow Friends Stamp Set, Wonderful Holiday Stamp Set
• Inks: Desert Sand, Twilight, Copic Markers to colour the stamped images, Spring Chalks
• Punches: Snowflake (Martha Stewart), Circle Punch (CM)
• Ribbon: Creme Brulee Ribbon Round Collection

I also played around with the free Inkscape software I downloaded off the internet and made myself an actual watermark today; I'm pretty pleased with myself that I actually figured out how to do it. What do you think?

Circle Happy Birthday Card...

Here is a birthday card I created for my Aunt... I've seen really great circle cards out there in the blogging world, but had not taken the opportunity to create on yet, so I thought this would be a great time to try :) Once I pulled the card together I was really upset that the silly thing kept rolling on the table and I couldn't get a good picture of it since it kept moving LOL! I realized that in order for the card to "sit" nicely I had to square up the bottom of the card - so I slightly trimmed a small area of the bottom edge of the card with my handy dandy scissors and I finally got the card to sit nicely LOL!

Supplies (all CTMH):
• Twitterpated Level 2 My Reflections Kit, Desert Sand CS
• Sorbet Brads
• Chocolate Ink, Sorbet Ink,
• Many Thanks Stamp Set, Happy Birthday Stamp Set
