Confirmation Party Favors

Here are lollipop holders for confirmation party favors.


Sentiment:  Confirmation Blessings


I added die-cut wraps, frames, stamped cross and printed sentiment then alternated the colors of pink, yellow, gold and white.  There is a touch of tulle to make it more girly.

Birthday Stars Shaker Card

Shake shake shake!
Another shaker card.  This one is for a birthday.


I've been making lots of cards.
Just finished a box of them for my Mom and now onto a box for my Mother-In-Law.
With so many men on both sides of the family and their requests for birthday cards, you may see more masculine designs.

My favorite thing about this card was making my own sequins for the shaker windows using dies and punches. So FUN.

Home is where they LOVE you.

Shaking things up a bit with this little scene inside of a shaker card.


Front sentiment:  Home is where they love you!


I love the little scene.  It looks like a perfect camping spot or tiny house escape.
I made it a backdrop for this shaker card, filled with pastel sequins.

Vintage Wedding Roses

This one was designed with inspiration from a couple of challenges and I wanted to play with these beautiful roses and leaves.


The style is drawn from the 
Altenew April Challenge: From Places Abroad China - The Forbidden City, Beijing.
Particularly the ornamental panels framing the columns in bottom of the photo below along with the beautiful colors of blue, teal, green and rich gold were my focus.
This is my first time trying these wonderful stamps and dies. I think I am hooked.

I felt this would be perfect as a wedding or anniversary card.

Following the inspiration from 
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: In the Middle, 
I placed an embossed vellum Mr. & Mrs. sentiment panel in the "middle" of these vintage roses.

Supplies include: Altenew Vintage Roses and Super Script stamps & dies, Paper Trey Ink vellum cardstock.

I like this frilly dress with tiny flowers.  This one is for my preteen niece.
I gave the dress an ombre watercolor look.
