Mr. and Mrs. Best Wishes

This design is newly made just last Friday. Yep - I finally got some stamping time, at home even! :)

The dress and tux appliques were actually favor bags that my aunt saved for me from my cousin's wedding. She thought I could use them on a card if I cut off the tulle pouch on the backs of them. She was right! :)

I wanted this card to be able to be used for anniversary or wedding. so I stamped the "Mr. and Mrs." sentiment from Fundamental Phrases tone on tone on the the now retired Brocade Blue color. And chose "Best wishes" from the Oval All stamp set. A few heart punches and some mini-glue dots to adhere the appliques and VOILA! - easy, fast and cute card. I'm giving this first one to my aunt as a thank you for the idea and the appliques. (She gave me several sets, so I'll be making more of these!) ENJOY!

HouseMouse Cupcake Celebration

This delightful House Mouse image has been sitting on my table, Copic-colored, waiting to be made into a card for several months. I was finally able to complete it - in stages - with the final stage being adding the sentiment and bling (LOVE the new bling SU added to the catty this year - self-adhesive rhinestones and pearls!) I've got a hodgepodge of materials in this design - retired DSP and NEW In Color Concord Crush.
