Happy Birthday Bakery!

I love this stamp set! I know it sounds bad, but I really enjoyed making a non-Christmas card. I missed the color pink!

And here is the inside.
I used a marker to color just the empty plates. You know, as if they ate all the cakes...?

I used:
* Birthday Bakery stamp set
* Early Espresso ink and Marker
* Rose Red, Early Espresso, Baja Breeze and Whisper White Card stock
* Rose Red designer paper
* Scallop Pinch
* Linen Thread

Northern Flurry two ways

I think I've raved about how much I love the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders before haven't I? If not, let me just say, I love them. I love them all! I wasn't going to order this one, but then I saw some of the fun things people are doing with it and of course, I ordered it and here we are.

This first card has a little bit of a vintage feel. I used Very Vanilla and then using a sponge, added some soft suede ink to the edges and the raised bits. A little Cherry Cobbler adds the perfect touch. It's still a very simple and flat card, but totally fancy enough to use as a holiday card. My husband hates it, but I think that might be a good sign.

This second card is almost the exact same layout, but with Whisper White, Real Red, shimmer paint and Pearls!
Can you see the pearls???? 
And yes, Josh hates this card too and I made it just for him! I wanted to use glitter instead of pearls and we all know where that gets us. Yep, that's right, glittery pants in court and no garbage taken out for a week.
The things we do for love.

Snow Swirled Gift Box

What goes better than rhinestones and snowflakes? Nothing. Because of this, I designed set of cards all around a similar theme of navy, silver, snowflakes and lots and lots of rhinestones. I couldn't help myself.
These pictures totally make it look my wall is the color of throw up but just try to look at the cards instead, ok? If I spent less time stamping I might have time to paint my house, but to be honest, I doubt it would come out much better. I'm not great at picking out paint colors. Don't judge me.
This box comes with 6 cards and envelopes. Perfect for a gift OR to use yourself. Either way, the cards are all really nicely finished with stamped liners on the inside and stamped envelopes to stuff them into.

And did I mention the rhinestones? Well, there are a lot of them, and they're really sparkly!

I also used accents of Brushed Silver card stock on each card which, if you haven't tried yet, you totally should!

Gift Bags!

I know I'm going just a bit crazy here, but don't we all need gift bags? And not just for Christmas either, for birthdays and baby showers too!
This is only a few of what I've made. I have tons more designs and sizes but I got a little sick of taking pictures so you'll have to either use your imagination, or come to the Jingle Bell Boutique on Saturday!

Dasher Box

This is the largest set of cards I'll be selling this Saturday at the Jingle Bell Boutique. The set includes the box and 12 coordinating Dasher cards with envelopes. Each card is stamped, embossed, glittered and has a white liner on the inside with a Christmas greeting on the inside.
These would be great cards for anyone use, but because they come in this lovely box they would also make a really super gift for someone else to enjoy.

The box comes with four of each of the following three cards:

This box will be selling for only $20.00 so don't miss out!

Kit 2 - Delightful Decorations

Just like the last kit, this kit comes with all the parts to make 6 coordinating cards. All you need is adhesive!
Each card has a Christmas greeting on the inside as well as on the outside. There are 2 of each of the following three cards:
This is my favorite! So simple and cute!

IN the kits, I actually changed the "Merry Christmas" to red, but you get the idea.

What could be more Christmasy than this?

And here is the box that holds all six envelopes, stuffed with all you need to assemble your cards.

If you won't be able to make it to the Jingle Bell Boutique this Saturday, you can still order this kit!
The cost is only $10.00 (plus shipping if you're not local)
Just let me know!

Kit 1 - Bingo Bits

Everyone loves to make cards, but not all of us have the time and materials to do it. This is why I've made these adorable kits!

This is the first of two quick and easy kits I've put together for the Jingle Bell Boutique this Saturday. Each kit includes six envelopes, each stuffed with all the things you'll need to put together two each of these fantastic cards. All you need is adhesive! I've stamped,cut, textured and punched everything!

Here's a close up of the first card. I love the look of the circle inside the scallop squares on this card.

I couldn't resist the Santa face!

And of course, ornaments!

This is the box that everything comes in. This would be super fun to do at home, with a friend or daughter or to give as a gift to someone who loves card making.

Most of the items at the boutique sale will only be available while supplies last, but I can take online orders for these fun kits so if you can't make it to the sale and you'd like a kit, just let me know!
