Baby Evie




Our friends in England, Chrissie and James, had a new granddaughter last week. She's so sweet, her parents have named her Evelyn (Evie for short). I love that name! I put together this non-traditional baby card using Bloomin' Love and some thinlit dies. I wanted to have the negative image with the colour behind and after a bit of fiddling, came up with this.

Recipe
Stamps : Bloomin' Love
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Calypso Coral
Ink : Calypso Coral
Accessories : Big Shot, Hearts a Flutter thinlit, Little Letters Thinlit, rhinestones.

Non SU Birthday Card

It's very rare I post a non-Stampin' Up project. I am very picky about stamp companies I will spend my money on. This card is made with my "other" favourite stamp manufacturer. Love it! Made this for my friend Barb's birthday. The "B" is made with a Stampin' Up set called Sophisticated Serifs.

Sleigh Ride Edgelits

I've been playing with the FABULOUS Sleigh Ride Edgelits. My "go to" aesthetic is Clean And Simple (CAS), so my first attempt was VERY CAS!


I really like it, but it just needs a little "something". I thought I'd add texture and really wish I'd stamped a greeting before I embossed, but it turned out OK.




Recipe
Ink: Night of Navy, Pool Party
Cardstock: Whisper White Thick, Shimmery White
Accessories: Sponges, Fine Tip Glue, Dazzling Diamonds, Sleigh Ride Edgelits
