This is a CASE of a card I saw in the idea book and catalog.  I changed the colors but kept the same basic layout.  I don't know what I would do without my stamp-a-ma-jig.  I think I use that tool on almost every card I create.

Stamps:  Itty Bitty Banners
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Rose Romance, Early Espresso, Rebecca DSP
Ink:  Rose Romance, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, Bitty Banners Framelits, Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, Bamboo Skewer, Mini Glue Dots

Sweet Baby Whale

This was for a baby shower I was invited to and since the couple found out they are having a boy it was nice not having to make something gender neutral.  I love this little whale image and wanted to use this on the card and I've had this designer paper in may stash for so long it was nice being able to incorporate this with the whale.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Itty Bitty Banners
Paper:  Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Delicate Dots DSP
Ink:  Black
Accessories:  Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities Dies, Bitty Banners Framelits, Happy Whale Clearlits, Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, White Gel Pen, Pearl, Dimensionals

Santa's Little Helper

The April 2014 Christmas card challenge was to use a "Toy or Toy Soldier" on a card.  I don't own any stamps with a toy soldier and I thought about using a stamp with packages to represent wrapped toys but I had this new stamp set from Verve that I really wanted to use.  This little reindeer kind of looks like he could be a stuffed toy so I decided to use him.  I had to stamp and color 8 of these little reindeer but the card turned out so cute I didn't mind a little "fussy" cutting.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Santa's Helper (Verve), Season of Joy
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Real Red, Merry Moments DSP
Ink:  Black, Real Red, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Smoky Slate
Accessories:  Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Real Red Satin Ribbon, Scallop Border Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, Rhinestones, Dimensionals
