Cute Cards for Kids

Today I am sharing a couple of cute cards made just for kids.
The first one is uses  the Fishy Friends stamp set.

 The Circles Framelits and the Large Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folder were used for card background.  The sentiment was stamped with the retired Curly Cute stamp set.  Love that font! 
The fish was stamped and heat embossed on watercolor paper and colored with ink refills and an Aqua Painter.

The second card is the cute little elephant from the retired Elebration stamp set.

It was colored with watercolor pencils and an Aqua Painter.  New accessories include the Large Polka Dots Textured Impressions embossing folder, Circles Framelits, and the Happy Birthday from the new Amazing Birthday stamp set.  Both cards were made with Bermuda Bay card stock.

Stop by tomorrow for  a cute flip card.

Holiday Home

This card was made with one of the new Photopolymer stamp sets from the new Holiday catalog which just became active on August 28th.  It is called Holiday Home, and it has 24 pieces to the set!  I made this card for someone who is moving into a new place next week.
   I used the square lattice embossing folder for the grass. The windows and roof were paper-pieced.  A small rhinestone dresses up the doorknob!
I'm anxious to try some other card ideas with this set, which has lots of stamping images for autumn, Halloween, Christmas, and other winter holidays.

Sharing Convention Swaps

I promised to share some of the swaps that I received when I attended convention.
The cards I selected to share today are each unique and beautifully crafted.

 Hot Diggity Dog stamp set was used by Colleen Leudeke to create this cute Pugs and Kisses card.

 The hearts and the use of the new hearts border punch add a nice touch.

"Thank you" by Susan Legits uses the Work of Art stamp set.  I love it in the Hello Honey color.

This baby card by Bonnie Shoup is so cute using the baby onesie and the dotted necktie. The images come from Baby, We've Grown  and Something for Baby stamp sets.
The choices of colors and the design elements used to make each one of these cards are just wonderful!

Thanks for visiting,

Cheerful Giggle Greetings

I made this cheerful get well card for a friend who needs some cheering up! 
I used bright colors and the Gorgeous Grunge stamps set to accompany the Giggle Greetings stamped images.
Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White are about a cheery as I  can get!  The little chevron-style arrow came from the Circle Card Thinlits set.
The greeting on the Window Frames (framelits) Collection was purposely stamped on an angle to give the card some interest.  The Festive Paper Piercing pack around the Cherry Cobbler window frame provides detail. The Decorative Dots TIEF  adds needed texture to the background.

I always welcome your comments!
Thanks for stopping by,

Bloom With Hope

This pretty card was made with a new Hostess Set, Bloom With Hope. Inspiration came from the catalog photo on  page 240.
The flowers were stamped with Momento ink and colored with a Razzleberry ink refill and an Aqua Painter.
Two oval framelits formed the frame, and the background paper is the lovely Fancy Foil Designer Vellum in gold.
The Happy Birthday greeting is embossed with gold E.P. and curved to make a flared banner.  It was attached with glue dots.
