Sunday night, time to get caught up!

Gosh, I have been so busy I haven't had time to update! it is!

I really like designing and making cards, so I've been joining a lot of swaps on our Stampin'Up! forum.

I did this card for a 10 + 1 swap:

It was so much fun to make, but very labor intensive! I had to cut most of the apron out by hand. And then since I loved the rick rack - reminded me of my grandma's aprons! - I sewed all that on too!

I love this card though cuz you can use it for so many events!

Especially thank you when somebody gives me something very yummy!

This card I did for a 25 + 1 swap. Wow, that's a lot of cards to make!

I made my own designer paper for the backgound piece (the very vanilla with the really rust flower stamped on it) and that was tons of fun! I have never done that before. I think it turned out pretty cool, huh?

My niece, who is a twin, is having twins, so we went to a baby shower for her. I saw this card on Stampers' Showcase and knew that I had to make it for somebody. Well, she was the lucky one! I altered the card from the one I originally saw by changing a few of the colors, adding the wire for the hangers, and then of course making two onesies because of twins, one boy and one girl!
For part of her gift, I made these thank you cards for her. I did five in the pink and five in the blue.

I love this flower with the Build A Brad in the middle! For the flowers on the bottom, I dry embossed and then lightly sanded the raised portion. I think it turned out pretty cool looking! The picture doesn't do it justice. Of course I had
to use a pink paper out of the Berry Bliss DSP so that I could get the white to show through. If I had used a regular piece of Pretty In Pink cardstock, it wouldn't have had the same effect since the cardstock is colored all the way through.

This card was a little tricky to get a good picture of since it's a pull-out card.

It was super easy to make.

I used a B out of SU's chipboard and covered it with DSP.

For the heart in the center of the star, I used a chipboard star from SU and covered it with Real Red and then embossed it with Glassy Glaze a couple of times to get it all shiney and thick.

Hope you enjoyed my cards tonight.
Thanks for looking!
