A Christening...

Happy Friday Everyone!

I'm back today with a sweet card for a baptism.  I don't often make special occasion cards like this because most of my friends have been married for years and don't have babies anymore.  But I sure enjoyed making this one.

I was asked to make a card for a friend's grandson's christening.  The first stamp I thought to use was 'Butterfly Baby'.  I really love this image.  It can be for either a boy or a girl;  it can be a butterfly or an angel;  it can be for a baby shower, birthday, christening or just because!  It's so versatile and I love that!  And guess what!  For a short time, 'Butterfly Baby' is specially priced at only $7.99 at the LDRS store!!!

First, I grabbed some of my favorite Maja papers in neutrals with a little bit of blue.  Then I painted the image very softly with TH distress inks.  

I layered and layered the papers inside and out.  I added tags, flowers and lace til I couldn't fit anymore on the front.  I grabbed my favorite Lovely View die and added a little texture behind the image.  Then I dug through my bins and drawers and found the metal heart charm and little white frame.  The charm had a loop on the top that I didn't like so I broke it off using some jewelry pliers.

I searched the internet for the perfect poem for the inside of the card.

Here's a close up of the card.  I am so very pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Grocery Bag? Or Gift Bag???...

Hello Everyone!!!

I'm back today to share with you a little project that I made to house a birthday gift for my girlie friend, Claudia.  Now, let me just start by saying that I don't get the opportunity to make projects for family and friends very often, so when I do get the chance I want it to be extra special.  To top it off, when it's for Claudia, I get really nervous because she is so freaking talented and I know my work will not compare to hers.  But I did my best.  So here it is.....

I had purchased some items for Claudia for her birthday and did not want to put them into a boring old store bought bag.  So I put my thinking cap on.....How many of you have a TON of those brown paper grocery bags???  Well, I do too!  So I grabbed one and started imagining what I could do.  

After cutting the bag here and there, slapping on some designer papers, coloring up the ever so gorgeous Saturated Canary 'Casey', and organizing some flowers, die cuts and embellies...this is the finished project.

The beautiful framing around the image was cut using the LDRS Darling Squares die set.  I wove some lovely purple ribbon through some of the cutouts and it's stunning!!!!!

I also stamped a banner sentiment using the Vintage Affections 'Friends' sentiment set.

 Thank you so very much for stopping by!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Everybody!!!

Today I have a card made with my favorite image from the Saturated Canary - Beautiful Gorgeous collection...(pssst!  I tell them all they're my favorite...hehehe)...

This gorgeous girl is 'Casey'.  Don't you just LOVE her eyes???  There is just something so relaxed, yet playful and sultry about her.  And I wish I had her hair!  ;-)

I paired her with a lovely sentiment from the Vintage Affections 'For All You Do' set.  It's such a beautiful font and the single word is just so perfect along side her.

The dainty flourishes were cut using the Darling Squares die set.  This set is so awesome!  It's a complete set of coordinating dies that can be used together to make an outstanding project OR you can pick and choose and use them individually as I did on this card.

I colored the image very simply with Copics, but I messed up her hair a bit.  So I added the white trails of dots to camouflage the error and it saved the day!  I love it even more with the dots!

That is all from me today.  Thank you so much for joining me!!!  I hope you enjoyed my project :-)

Angie xoxo
