Raise the Bar Challenge #5 - Be Mine Forever

Posted by Susan on Monday, February 15, 2010 in ,
I decided to try the Raise the Bar - Be Mine Forever Challenge which was to use a stamp/set/item that you will never ever ever sell or give up. Ever.

So first, I have to say I can't imagine parting with any of my stamp sets - I'm a horder in that regard! However, if there was one set I would really miss it would have to be my SU Lovely as a Tree set. I know, it's not that old, but I haven't been stamping that long.



Stamps: SU Lovely as a Tree, Studio G Dream
Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Bazzil CS Orange, SU Kraft
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip
Other: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities Label Three, Maple Leaf Punch, Michaels Orange and White polkadot ribbon, SU Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens, Acorn and Oak Leaf accents

Baby Best Wishes

Posted by Susan on Monday, February 15, 2010 in , ,
Just a little birthday shower card for a co-worker, who is heading off to have baby #2. I wanted to try creating a "quilt" type look in the background of the card, which I achieved with a scoring blade and the white pearls. Simple, but I think I achieved the look I was after.

Paper: Baby Blue and Apricot Card stock
Other: Slice, Slice Basics Design Card, Pearls, Stickers, White flock from doodlebug
