Bright Springy Cards & A Graduation Banner

This first card was made for a blog friend for her birthday. Patty Bennett's birthday was last Wednesday, May 28th. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PATTY!! She had some blog candy up for grabs if you sent her a birthday card but I asked her not to enter my card in the contest. I just wanted to send her a special birthday RAK for always being so sweet to me and helping me with my Stampin' Up! business and blog. I actually made this card before she announced her blog candy. I thought I'd share it with you now since I'm sure she's already received it. Ok, the supplies are really simple. Pixie Pink cardstock, Printed Paper from DCWV's Premium Stack paper called Nana's Nursery/Baby Girl. The sentiment was heat embossed with the Stampin' Up! set called Sincere Salutations and Detail White embossing powder and punched out with the Large Oval Punch. The ribbon came from Macy's and was wrapped around my Mother's Day gift from my DH & DS. This card was made for a good friend of mine...Debbie Colbacchini. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DUDE!! Her birthday was also last week, May 27th. The supplies are the same as the card above except for the cardstock which is Elegant Eggplant and the ribbon which is Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain.
This card is actually cased from a card I saw in the Paper Craft Inspirations magazine. The original card was created by Alison Hamnett. Everything I used is different than the original card but the layout is the same. I used Tempting Turquoise cardstock and Printed Paper from DCWV's Premium Stack paper called Nana's Nursery/Baby Boy. The little flowers are punched with the SU! punch Boho Blossoms and I added some faux gemstones from my stash. I also used the small and large Oval punches from SU! and some white 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and some white eyelets. The sentiment is stamped using Tempting Turquoise Classic pad and the Fundamental Phrases stamp set. I also used my Pinking Shears to gut the squares and the tops of the cupcakes. I punched the bottoms of the cupcakes out with my 1 3/8" square punch then just rounded the corners with my scissors.
Here's another card I made using the Printed Paper from DCWV's Premium Stack paper called Nana's Nursery/Baby Girl. This wasn't made with anyone in mind but I think I know who's going to get it. Can't say who until I know she's gotten it in the mail. :0) The background cardstock is Apricot Appeal and the letters are from the dollar section at JoAnne's.
Here's a special card I made for my Sister's upcoming bridal shower. My Mom and I are hosting the shower and originally I thought about buying the invitations but as I thought about it I just wanted to make something really special. I came up with this. I'm not sure about the YoYo Yellow on the card or the button so it might change a bit from this before it goes out in the mail. I made up a poem for the front of the card that says: They fell in love.They set the date.Now it’s time to celebrate. The cardstock base is cut at 10" x 10" Fold it in half then turn it 1/4 turn and fold it in half again. You should have 4 squares on your card. Then you cut off the flap on the lower left corner and cut the lower right corner up to about 2 1/5". Then fold up the bottom flap and insert your cards with all the info. The first card says Details and will have something like this on it: Please join us for a bridal shower honoring Leticia Castellon on Saturday July 26 at 1:00 pm #### Address, City, CA Please RSVP Mother of the Bride: Donna Gonzales ###/###-#### Sister of the Bride: Lorraine Castellon-Rowe ###/###-####. The second card says Food and will have the menu and the third card will say Fun and will have this quote or something like it: Games will be played. Prizes will be won. You will laugh and enjoy time with friends and loved ones.
The words shown here are actually just photoshopped in to see what it will look like. I will actually print the words on each card.Finally, here's a banner I made for my DS's preschool graduation. WOO HOO!! I'm so very proud of him and will sincerely miss his teachers! They are the absolute best teachers in Fremont in my honest opinion. The banner to the left is one another class used and we decided to keep it up. The one I created is the one with the stars. The white stars say CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2008. I used my Cricut to cut the stars and the letters. I used SU!'s Glossy white, Brilliant Blue and Real Red cardstock. I punched the small red stars using our Large star punch. The yellow stars were bought at Michael's. If you click on the picture you should see a close up of the banner.Thank you so very much for stopping by to see me today! I hope you are enjoying what's left of your weekend!
