Three Card Mon-Day!

Okay Ladies (& Gents if you're out there) what do you think about my new banner? I am working at updating my blog a bit at a time so there might be some days that it is a bit wonky. I will continue to post as frequently as possible just the "prettiness factor" might be off from time to time. Enough with the chit chat on to the cards!

These cards are all made from the Hostess Set in the Mini Occasions Catalog called A Slice of Life (121952). The only way you can play with these adorable stamps is to Host a Workshop! You bring the guests & I'll bring the rest!

The card base is Peach Parfait (119794); there is a Pear Pizzaz (119795) mat behind the Sunny Garden DSP (119831).  I ran a silver of Poppy Parade (119793) card stock through the Crimper (101618) and punched a tiny flower with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch (118309).  The image is clipped onto some Linen Thread (104199); stamped in Basic Gray (109120) and colored with a Blender Pen (102845).

I'm not naming names but I know 2 stampers who are expecting and only about 6 weeks apart!  It was a total give-away when they both placed orders for all the baby related products.  This card was inspired by these special ladies.  

Daffodil Delight Card Stock (119683) and 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (119761) help to set off the Tempting Turquoise Card Stock (102067) and DSP from the Brights DSP Stack (117155).  I added a little bling with a Tempting Turquoise Glimmer Brad (121006); they are available in the Mini Occasions Catalog in four different color assortments.  

Simple announcements for a baby boy which could easily be made in Pretty in Pink (119938) with Certainly Celery Card Stock (105125) and 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (109050) for a girl.

I wish both of you (you know who you are) easy pregnancies and HEALTHY BABIES!

I don't even drink coffee!  But this stamp is so cute I couldn't resist.  Card base is Real Red Card Stock (102482); the DSP is from the Love Letter assortment (117162) and the mat is Soft Suede Card Stock (115318); which is quickly becoming my favorite neutral.  The image was stamped three times in Basic Black (101179); once each on Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650), Real Red and Soft Suede.  I colored the center mug with Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker (100082), added highlights with the Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen (105021) and covered it all in Crystal Effects (101055) to make it shiny.  The other two mugs were cut out and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).  The edges of the card base were pierced with the Paper-Piercing Tool (116631) and the lines stayed straight thanks to the Mat Pack (105826).  The finishing touch is the 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon (119261).

If you think these stamps are too cute, as I do, email me or give me a call to schedule your workshop.  If you have one in March, your hostess benefits are increased & your guests receive free products due to the Sale-a-Bration!
