Black and White Vintage Wedding Invitation

Hi everyone.  In the midst of finishing up birthday party invitations, I also had to get a sample wedding invitation done for someone.  I wasn't crazy about the font of the alpha stamps.  They looked so nice and vintage when I bought them but I don't like the look of them.  My customer loved the invitation!!  She requested a different font like I knew she would.  She also forgot to tell me she changed the colors of her wedding to beige and white.  So they will look different and have some cream colored lace inside instead.  I don't want to show the inside because of the personal information in it, but I heat embossed the design with silver embossing powder.

Sock Monkey Birthday Party Invitation

I got a custom order of 50 sock monkey birthday party invitations.  I will meet up with the couple today to show them the sample invitation.  I already text them the pictures of the outside and inside tag and they absolutely love the invitation!!  I'm so glad!  I won't show the inside tag because of all the info on it, but it has  a picture of their daughter that I punched out with a circle punch and then adhered that on to a scallop circle punch (Daffodil Delight).

Tim Holtz Bird Cage and Birthday Card

Happy Friday to everyone!!  I made this bird cage from the Tim Holtz die.  This is for my sister-in-law whose birthday is next week but I will be seeing her Saturday to give her this, her card and other gifts I got her as well.  So easy to make and I have seen many versions out there.  Everyone is so talented!!  Burgundy is her favorite color so I made her this card as well.

Welcome Back To School Cards

Alas, but the weekend is over and it's back to the grind tomorrow.  I did have a productive weekend.   I finished the baby shower invitations I was working on and I also made 4 welcome back to school cards for my grandson Orlando's teachers.  I've mentioned before he is a special needs child and his class has 4 teachers for the kids.  I didn't have a Welcome Back stamp so I used a sentiment from a Stampin Up stamp set.  To go with the cards, I will be putting a nice beautiful red apple in a cellophange bag wrapped with Real Red Satin Ribbon and a tag as well.

Ok, so I ended up getting the wrong size cello bags (they were too small) so I improvised and used paper bags instead.  Inside is the card and a red apple.  You may not be able to see it, but I embossed the bags with the polka dot embossing folder.

Baby Shower Invitation

I made a sample of this last month in yellow but last week we found out that my nephew and fiance are having another boy!  So I decided to start on them.  I love this style of invitation especially for showers.  I still need to add a rhinestone in the middle of each wheel on the baby carriage and then I will be done with them.

Seamless Tier Card

Good morning and Happy Thursday.  I made this card for my mom as usual.  My mom means the world to me and I love making her cards to let her know how I feel.  I have seen this card a lot but my inspiration came from youtube.  Her user name is Patty Gorka.  I really love this technique and plan to use it more often!!  I love you mom!
