Wedding Bells

Love is in the air, and it's not just my own wedding that is coming up! I know plenty of people who are tying the knot, so I decided to make a wedding card and am very happy with the way it came out. I used my SU! DSP and a new stamp set my friend KC gave me.

In this card:
Card stock - River Rock (base), Ginger Blossoms DSP and White
Stamps - SU! Together Forever

Happy Diversion

So the other night my best friend Nicole and I were planning to work on some wedding stuff (flower girl baskets), but instead decided to make some cards. :)

We made a couple of really cute ones!

This first one is Nicole's. It's adorable. I especially love the use of SU! hodgepodge hardware with the ice blue brads. We also bought a ton of ribbon at Michael's, and I did the bow for her. I'm pretty ok with bows :)

Mine was a little more low key, but I like it. I made it for my brother's birthday which is on Labor Day. It's a 3x3 with a little piece of wire for the balloon string.

In this card:
Card stock - Rose Red (base), Summer Picnic DSP and White
Stamps - SU! Birthday Whimsy (SAB)

New find - Kaiser Craft

I found a great website called Kaiser Craft. I found their site when I was going through a scrap booking magazine focused on mini albums. They carry lots of embellishments, chipboard, and albums. The best thing about their site is that they have a free workshop magazine with alot of great ideas, so be sure to check it out. I think I want to try and be more adventurous and see what other things I can create. :)

eBay is killing me

I found a really cute stamp on eBay. The company that made it is called Hero Arts, and seems to be somewhat popular. Take a look at the stamp I got and you'll see why - it's simple but adorable! It was a whole set but I only bought the frog (even though the rest of the set is just as adorable). Generally I don't care too much about frogs, but I like this one. Now that I have it, I've joined another swap, this time for frog cards. This isn't a newbie swap, so I have to make sure to do a good job. I've already started some ideas, but just haven't settled on anything yet.
