I made this quite a while ago, for a friend at work who was having a baby, but she had chosen not to find out if it is a girl or a boy. Her husband is a professional photographer, so I figure they have a few million amazing baby pictures. I wanted to make her something to showcase a few of the pictures. I used the Scallop Square Bigz Die to create the base for this. The ribbon (which retired a few years back) is sandwiched between two of the scalloped squares cut out of the cardboard that comes in the packs of designer series paper. This die is on the retiring list, and only available while supplies last, so I would suggest getting it sooner rather than later! (You can click on the picture for a closer view.)
Paper: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack
Other: Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon (retired), Scallop Square Bigz Die
The retiring accessories are selling out quickly! You can shop all of the retiring items here.

My mother-in-law mentioned the other day that she loves paisley, which surprised me. I had no idea at all. But I immediately thought of the gorgeous paisley paper in the Print Poetry stack. Her birthday is tomorrow, so I combined the paper with the Dress Up Framelits to make this card for her.
Stamps: Memorable Moments
Ink: Midnight Muse
Paper: Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla, Print Poetry Designer Series Paper
Other: Dress Up Framelits, Ovals Collection Framelits, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Basic Pearls
I have seen quite a few cards combining the ovals framelits with the dress stand. I’m not sure whom to credit with the idea, but it is a fabulous layout!

I am off to go make pop-up cards at STEAM day today (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math), but before I go I have a quick card for you. (Don’t worry, I’ll show you the STEAM day cards later in the week.) This card combines the Pals Paper Arts color challenge and this week’s sketch from Seize the Birthday.
This one came together really quickly. I love how that cute patterned cupcake fits so nicely in the oval frame. The ribbon on the side reminds me of an elegant bound book.
Stamps: Patterned Occasions
Ink: Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Raspberry Ripple
Paper: Crumb Cake, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White, 2011-2013 In Colors Designer Series Paper Stack
Other: Designer Frames Embossing Folder, Wide Oval Punch, Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon
Don’t forget! Patterned Occasions is a Sale-a-Bration set, and only available until March 22!

Another bright a fun color challenge from Dynamic Duos this week! Mom absolutely loves yellow (Hi Mom!), so how could I not play along?
I decided it was time to break out the Secret Garden stamp set and the matching framelits. I’ve seen a few other stampers create cards with the oval in the center and the flowers on one end. It is so fun, and easy too, since they work so well together!
Stamps: Secret Garden, Perfectly Penned
Ink: VersaMark, StazOn Jet Black
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Whisper White
Other: Secret Garden Framelits, Ovals Collection Framelits, Vine Street Embossing Folder
I’ll have to make another one for my mom though. This card is heading out to a friend who surprised me with a really large Scentsy order today. It goes nicely with March Scent of the Month, Hello Yellow.

I am so honored to have had this card chosen as an honorable mention in last’s week’s Seize the Birthday challenge! Of course that made me super excited to play along with this week’s sketch! It is the first week of a new sketch, so it is back to feminine birthday cards.
I just got the All Dressed Up bundle, so I had to pull it out to make this card! I have seen so many different Designer Series Papers used for this dress. I chose this pattern from Summer Smooches because I wanted it to look simple and elegant. The finished card is 5″ x 5″.
Stamps: All Dressed Up
Ink: StazOn Jet Black
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper, Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper
Other: Dress Up Framelits, Labels Collection Framelits, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Basic Rhinestones, Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon
I really love these cut out dresses. Don’t be surprised if you see a ton more! I’ve been pinning them like crazy!

Wow! I can not believe that today is my 17th wedding anniversary! How could the time go so quickly?
As I may have mentioned before, my husband is an avid woodworker, and has lately been pursing it more and more. (See his Kickstarter Project here.) So of course, the anniversary card that I made had to include woodworking! I pulled out my Hearts Collection Framelits, and this is what I came up with.
Stamps: Tool Shed, Memorable Moments, Oh Whale (heart)
Ink: Midnight Muse, Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Other: Hearts Collection Framelits
I do love making shaped cards with Framelits! I think that the colors and the stamps keep it pretty masculine looking, even with the scallops on the outside heart.

Eve’s fourth grade teacher has two small children, so we thought that Scentsy Buddies would be the perfect gift for them. We wanted to make sure that each child got the right stuffed animal, so I made up some quick and easy tags to go on the boxes.
Stamps: Got Treats?
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Real Red
Paper: Very Vanilla, Real Red
Other: Labels Collection Framelits
I used my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to write their names, so even that would coordinate with the tags. These were super quick to make, and I think they turned out super cute as well.

Less than 2 weeks until the new year! I combined the Nacho Average Challenge Sketch with the SUO Challenge, a Season of Glitter, to make this card celebrating the New Year.
I have to say, 2013 looks really strange. I guess the new year always takes some getting used to. I used the Adorning Accents Edgelit to cut these scallops quickly and easily.
Paper: Basic Grey, Basic Black, Brushed Silver, Silver Glimmer Paper, Neutrals Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack
Other: Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies, Adorning Accents Edgelit
I was thinking about using the Champagne Glimmer Paper, but New Year’s Eve just seems to go better with black & silver in my mind. What do you think — gold for New Year’s Eve?

A few weeks ago I showed you the little 3″ x 3″ card that I sent out with the samples of Scentsy’s scent of the month for November, Peppermint Dreams. At the time I mentioned that I would also show you the full-size version, based on Sami’s Convention swap card. A big thank you again to Debbi for cutting these out for me! It is such a fun card to make. I want to try ribbon behind other shapes as well.
Stamps: Pennant Parade
Ink: Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Marker
Paper: Real Red, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Other: Real Red 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Whisper White 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Dotted Scallop Ribon, Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine, Small Oval Punch, Holiday Collection Framelits
I hope that you will come back tomorrow for Day 5 of the Hanukkah Blog Hop! We are halfway through, but there are plenty more great ideas to come!

I love making cute little Halloween treats, and they could not be easier with the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle!
