Lovely as a Tree

I found this card online & thought I'd try it myself. It's SO pretty, simple & easy to make (though, I have to admit, my first attempt has glitter on it... Now, I have glitter ALL OVER my stamp room).

This card uses the non-traditional Night of Navy, Baja Breeze & Shimmery White cardstock. I'm waiting to receive my newly ordered Many Merry Messages before stamping a greeting on the front.

A Waterfall Card

I was asked to make a Waterfall Card for someone to give to their friend who is having a baby boy any day now. This is the card I came up with. If you've never seen a waterfall card before, they are incredibly awesome. They're not too difficult to put together, but can be a little time consuming.

Basically, what happens is when you pull the ribbon (at the bottom of the card), the little pictures flip up & your greeting appears on the long cardstock as you pull it out. Click on any picture to enlarge it.

This card would be great as a unique birth announcement (with pictures of the newborn on the squares & the birth information on the long piece) or congratulations on your new little bundle of joy (like this sample). Using different stamps, it would make a fun happy birthday card as well.

This card uses Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue & Very Vanilla
cardstock & ink along with a variety of retired Stampin' Up! stamps.
