Cute Turtle Friends Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Looking back over my last few posts I see a lot of floral cards – I admit flowers are one of my weaknesses and I am so drawn to stamp sets and decorative paper with them on, so today I am going in another direction by turning to turtles!

The Turtle Friends Bundle is beyond cute, made up from the Turtle Friends Stamp Set with the coordinating Turtle Punch. I bought it with children’s cards in mind but I think it will work for any ‘young at heart’ adult!

Super Cute Racoon Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I made this card earlier this year, I just love this little guy and chose colors I thought would appeal to the littlies in our lives. It uses a two-step stampin’ technique and to ensure I lined everything up properly I used my Stamparatus.

I think if you change out the greeting it would make a fantastic new baby card or even an anniversary card – the possibilities are endless.

Happy Birthday, Holly

Our youngest grand-daughter turned 4 a couple of weeks ago ~ I am not very good with cards for littlies so I let my  High Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper do all the work with a little help from the Well Said and Well Written Framelit Dies.

The How Sweet it is DSP contains some really fun designs with lollipops, cupcakes and gummy bears among them, the colors are really bright and cheerful and perfect for a  little girl!

Animal Outing Birthday

Earlier this month was Grand-daughter # 3’s birthday – the Animal Outing Stamp set with the coordinating Animal Expedtion Designer Series Paper is just perfect for  ‘littlies’ in our lives, change out the colors and it works for either boys or girls!

Because this card needed to be sent to the UK I kept the layering and decorations to a minimum, relying on the Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon to provide my signature bling!

Animal Outing ~ Birthday

Our youngest grand-daughter just turned 3!  Cannot believe how quickly those 3 years have passed.  Nearby where they all live in the UK is a Wildlife Park,  a favorite place for a family day-out.  So when it came to making her a card this year the Animal Outing Stamp Set, which I got when attending the Stampin’ UP! demonstrator conference at the beginning of April, was perfect for her birthday card.
