My Baby Girl's Communion Invitations

Just this past week my baby girl made her First Reconciliation and now with much excitement, we await the day of her First Holy Communion.

Here are the invitations I made for the upcoming special day...

I'm so happy with how they turned out. Just so perfect for her.

The card base was cut using the Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die from Stampin' Up! The image of the little angel and teddy bear angel is so cute. I coloured it with Stampin' Up! markers, added extra sparkle to the wings with Stickles glitter glue, and embellished the angel's (Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl Guardian Angel stamp) necklace with a heart shaped adhesive rhinestone. I curled her wings to add dimension. The cloud was cut out of felt using a cloud die, and mounted with foam tape.

These really put a smile on my face. Now bring on that special day. :)

Bride To Be's Kitchen Tea Bouquet

My nephew is getting married next month and his fiancée's Kitchen Tea is coming up next week. I wanted my card for the occasion to be extra special, so searching the net for inspiration I came across this card for inspiration, and based my own card on it:

Here is my card:

The card base colours are Crumb Cake and Pretty in Pink.

I cut slivers of Old Olive card stock and bound them together with pink ribbon. The flowers were punched with one of the flowers from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack, and embellished with tiny adhesive half-pearls. I printed the sentiment on my computer and punch it out using the Jewellery Tag Punch.

I just love how this turned out!

Petite Petals Sweet Sixteenth

A lovely young lady is turning sixteen this week. Such an exciting milestone. Such exciting times. Oh, to be sixteen again!

 Here is the card I made for her using the Petite Petals stamp set and matching punch:


I stamped the flowers, punched them out, curled up the petals, embellished them with an adhesive rhinestone, and mounted them onto the card with foam tape to added dimension. To the centre flower I added a little "16" tag punched with the Jewellery Tag Punch...and that's it.

Sweet and simple. :)
