Birthday Bash and Bundles for Baby

I made these two cards for a special client of mine. I hope she likes them!!!
This card is for her friend's baby, Asher. I love the whale from Animal Stories and the the little fishy from Something Sweet. I used some generic designer baby paper for the stripped paper. I used the scalloped large circle and scalloped edge punch. The cardstock and ink is Blissful Blue and Marina Mist...two of my favorites.
This is for Asher's mom! She is turing 30. I used an old SU punch and am totally forgetting the name of it. I think my client should tell Asher's mom to watch out.....she will be losing her memory next at the Big O Birthday (40) in a few years. I cut the pieces in half to make the candles and used the scalloped circle punch and cut out flames from the scallops. The sentiments is from a Sale-A-Bration set. Designer paper is the retired Tea Party that I really wish was still current. The solid cardstock is Old Olive and Rose Red.

Bunches of Punches!

My next stamp club/workshop at our home is going to focus on Stampin Up Punches. This sample uses the new Two Step Bird punch (#117191 $16.95) which I simply adore. It's so easy to use and put together. I used Wild Wasabi, Garden Green and Rose Red for the colored cardstock and whisper white for the base of the card. I scored a 1/4 inch line on the Wild Wasabi and lined up the circle punches along that line on the back of the Wild Wasabi main image cardstock. The score, that you can't really see in the photo, adds a little dimension to the card, too. I used the 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch for the circle scalloped edge (#119861 $15.95). I also used the Filigree Designer Brads (#112577 $5.95) for the floral brad inset in the upper right corner of the main image. I used the oval punch (#119855 $15.95) and the small sclloped oval punch (#119856 $16.95) for the sentiments. The stamp sets I used were Elements of Style (Wood #118611 $$27.95 or Clear Mount #120045 $19.95) and With All My Heart (Wood #118134 $17.95 Clear Mound #118623 $13.95)
