Baby Cards

I'm posting this card in honor of the birth of my 4th granddaughter. Now I have 5 grandchildren. I'm so blessed!

This card's inspiration came from a Splitcoast Stamper's Sketch challenge #477.I didn't use this card for the new baby. It went into my stash for the next baby shower that comes up.

The stamp set is from Stampin' Up! and is named Baby, We've Grown. It has so many cute, adorable images and nice sentiments.

What inspires you? Some of the things that inspire me are occasions, (I need a birthday or baby card!), a challenge, or a cute stamp set.

Stamp sets or any supplies can be purchased by following the link for my stamping store above. You'll have to search by my name to get me as your demonstrator.

If you ever have any questions or comments, leave them below or email me.

Creative Juices and how they work for me

Well, sometimes they just don't work, but this week was a good week. I've had some time off from work and so I had extra time to work on cards.

I've been excited about Fall, Thanksgiving, and WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!
I'm having a get together at my house on that day so that is getting my creative juices flowing too.

The inspiration for the cards I make are from sketches, (Freshly Made Sketches - Thank you), pinterest, and sometimes I actually think up something in my own head.

This card is sort of like some others I've made. It follows a basic layout, but I wanted to use fall colors and falling leaves. I thought of the colors of leaves and how they turn from green to yellow to brown. It needed a little something besides the color, leaves and sentiment, so I added the candy dots.

The card recipe is:
Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Work of Art, and Gratitude for Days
Ink: Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Baked Brown Sugar, and Chocolate Chip
Extras: Candy dots - Old Olive & Daffodil Delight

TFL - Thanks for looking.
