Inchie gifts

I made this card with Inchie stamps from Inkadinkado, with Ladybug red and Jet black inks from Memento. The card is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and distressed with Tim holtz distress inks, as well as the sentiment label, which is from Spellbinders. the sentiment is from Stampendous.
This card has turned out a little different...I like it though! Inchies are fun!

An elegant border

To make this card, I stamped the Elegant Borders stamp set from Stampendous, with Rich Cocoa ink from Memento on an ivory 4"x6" folded card. 
I then cut it out and inserted a piece of kraft cardstock (cuttlebug embossed) under it. 
I stamped my 'Stampin'Up" roses and leaves onto coloured paper from my 'Making Memories" 6"x6" paper pad,  and cut them out.  
I pieced the roses together to create a motif. 
The sentiment is a peel-off sticker from 'Anita's'. I finished it off with some adhesive gemstones and pearls bouught locally.
I love the way it has turned out. I hope you like it too!

The kids used a variety of stamps from Stampendous, Hero Arts, Inkadinkado, Studio G, Kaiser Craft, Fiskars, A muse, Paper Studio and Kodomo Inc., to make these  instantly redeemable coupons for all sorts of things...from foot massages, to quiet time, to favourite meals!
I hope this inspires you all to make some too!

10th birthday card

My little one turns 10 today!!!
How the years have flown! She lights up our lives in more ways than one!
She is truly our Superstar!
Inspired by a blogpost I read yesterday( A little hut leaf tag), I made this card for her that echoes our sentiments...
The stars are fun..they turn around the brad. The sentiment is from my 'Magnetic poetry word stamp kit' from Words&Crafts.
It isn't clearly visible, but the star on the 'Superstar' sentiment is actually looks really shiny and fun!
I have enteresd this card for the Stamptv  'Free for All Friday' challenge and the 'Live Chat and Challenge Wednesday-It's a DIY DP Day!'
