Rhylan is 3 Months!

Rhylan is 3 months old. She is getting big fast but not fast enough for the doctor. She hasn't gained any weight in over a month so we are moving her onto formula. Hopefully this will fix the problem and help put on some weight. I hope to have some cards to post soon. Have been so busy getting classes ready for the fall I haven't had much to post lately. I hope to be able to work on some sample cards really soon!

Happy Birthday Jack!

I made this card for my cousin Jack's Birthday. I wanted to use the new Pennant Parade stamp set from Stampin' Up. I decided to turn them upside sown to make them look like party hats. The card sketch came from Taylored Expression Sketch Challenge #142. To make the card I started with a base of Early Espresso cardstock. I then added some Crumb Cake cardstock for a mat for my pattern paper. The pattern paper is from my Basic Grey 6x6 Birthday Pack. I then stamped three party hats in Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist, and Tangerine Tango on the matching Cardstock. I then punched them out with the new Pennant Punch from Stampin' Up. The larger hat is cut from some more paper from the 6x6 Basic Grey paper pack. I placed the hats on a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock that I spritz with my Stampin' Up Colour spritzer and the Crumb Cake marker. The pom poms on the hats are flower brads that I had in my stash. I mounted the Crumb Cake strip on top of some Early Espresso cardstock that I punched on one side with the Scalloped Edge Punch from Stampin' Up. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Sell-a-bration set "So Happy For You". I stamped it on some Crumb Cake cardstock with Early Espresso ink. I then notched out the end and curled it slightly to look like a banner.  I finished the card off with some Brown pearls from my stash.

On the inside of the card I used some more Crumb Cake cardstock. My sentiments are from the Stampin' Up set "Bring on the Cake". I drew around the outside with the Early Espresso marker to make a small border. My friend Donna does this on the inside of her cards and I think it looks great so I thought I  would give it a try.

I entered my card in the Taylor Expressions Sketch Challenge #142 at Splitcoaststampers.
