Big Anniversary

My aunt and uncle will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary next month and my mom commissioned me to make a card for them . I actually already made invites for a gathering that we will be having but forgot to take pics to share. But the colour scheme was the same as was the general idea. Lots of love! Perfect timing as I have all my valentine goodies out and ready to use.
I miss Taken With Teal. Such a beautiful colour but I have still a little bit left. I paired it with Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. All the Vanilla layers were sprayed with Champagne Shimmer Paint and the Teal layer was run through the Big Shot with an embossing plate and then I copied the details with Dazzling Details. Such a neat effect! All the hearts were cut with the new Heart Collection Edgelits and the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit.
I carried on a bit of the same ideas to the inside. I used the same Lace Border Punch and then added some Dazzling Details to it for some added pizazz. The sketch I used is from Pals Paper Arts challenge #127.

Cupcake Toppers

So here are the cupcake toppers to match the card I made for my daughter's birthday. I really had so much fun making these and you should have seen her face when she saw them. I used a few shades of pink, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Pretty In Pink to name a few. Some accents include, Silver Glass Glitter, Champagne Shimmer Paint, and 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon. All the girls cousins kept theirs but of course the boys didn't have much interest in them so we got to take a few back home to play with.
So what did the pretty ballerina get for her birthday???
Meet the latest edition to our family. Ella, a 15 week old Labradoodle. It has been a crazy long day and we'll see how our first night together goes. Hopefully we'll get along well and she'll still allow me some stamping time. I really have enjoyed getting back into it lately. Till next time...happy stamping!

Loving These Edgelits!

I am sooooooooooooo very happy SU! finally came up with these Edgelits. This is the Frame Collection and I am loving them to bits.

This is a birthday card I made for my daughter. She chose the ballerina theme for her party. I'll share the cupcakes toppers later(they're really cute). Anyways I turned the card into a shaker card using the retired micro beads. The paper I used was from Cheerful Treat and the Silver Glitter paper. I embellished the card with a Glimmer Brad and some Basic Rhinestones. She is gonna love this card. I can't wait to give it to her.
I've entered this in Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #101 asking for a Shaker card. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a good weekend!
