Bridal Shower invites - Part 2

Hello! I am finally sharing the other 2 bridal shower samples I made. Again, these were done with MDS, printed out and added to colored cardstock. I used the Cheers to You and By the Tide sets in MDS. I've been having a lot of fun making these samples. I still have the birthday party invites to share. And I got my goodies from the new catalog so I hope to try to at least make one card with the stuff I bought. Although now we are in party planning mode for my son's first birthday and I have about a thousand craft ideas that I would like to complete before July 6th, haha! Plus the actual cleaning and yardwork that needs to be done. To me, I think the crafts and decorations are more important, haha! Of course, I will post pictures of the things that I get done. So stay tuned for a birthday party post in July.

Stamps: By the Tide, Cheers to You
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Pool Party

Oh, Hello Anniversary Card

Hello!! Have you all checked out the new catalog yet! Of course I love everything in it as always. I especially love the new In Colors this year! Swoon!! I think Coastal Cabana will be my new favorite. I should be getting my new items in the next couple of days so I hope that I can play a little over the weekend. I would like to start my classes up again so hopefully I can work on some cards for that. I have some ideas floating around in my head. Today's card uses new colors and the Oh, Hello set from the mini which is now in the new catalog. The background is the new Smokey Slate (love this as well). I stamped the large flower from Betsy's Blossoms in Smokey Slate. I stamped the chevron image from Oh Hello in Coastal Cabana onto white cardstock cut with the Labels Framelits dies. The flowers were stamped in Strawberry Slush and Crisp Cantaloupe (the stems are Lucky Limeade). I added 2 flowers from the flower trim and colored them with Crisp Cantaloupe. However they came out way more orange-y than I would have liked. But overall, I like how the rest of the card came out. I gave this card to my brother and sister-in-law for their first wedding anniversary on June 1st. It did feel good to kind of get into the swing of things and make a card. Lately, I've been making a lot of invitations with no time for cards. I will post the other 2 bridal shower invites I did soon and then I have the invitations to show for my son's first birthday party. They came out so cute! I can't wait to share them.
Thanks for stopping by!
