I whipped these cute magnets up on Saturday. Thought they would be cute to sell at Vintage for Mother's Day gifts. I used the larger square on the Scallop Square Duo Die. The DSP is "Springtime Vintage" from the Spring Mini catalog, only a few days left to order it. Of course the larger butterfly is from the "Beautiful Butterflies" Bigz Die and the smaller are from the "Beautiful Wings Embosslit". I added some tiny adhesive pearls to the smaller butterflies and the word "mother" to the larger ones, using the small and large oval punches. The word stamp came from "Wonderful Favorites". These were super easy to make and using the cardboard from our SU shipping boxes for the scalloped squares is a great way to recycle!
This card was given to me by my wonderful upline, Kim Molesworth. She made it for my housewarming/starting over party and I just think it is so beautiful. She used the inlaid embossing technique to get the quilted fabric look and also added this beautiful flower made of layers of both card stock and fabric. I love the color combo, in fact it is one that I have been using a lot lately myself. Great minds think alike! You can check out more of Kim's beautiful creations at her blog:
Thanks again, Kim! I love it!

Here is one of the projects from our April Hostess Gathering this past Saturday. Since I have 2 ladies in the Hostess Club that are both expecting their first child, I thought it would be fitting to design a baby card. Unfortunately, both of those gals were unable to attend...lol! But we made the card anyway! I love the versatility of the "Nature Walk" Stamp Set. I have made many birthday cards with it, but also Easter and now Baby. I also used the "Wonderfully Worn" and "Sanded" Background Stamps to give some texture to the project. The speckles on the Wonderfully Worn BG Stamp matched the speckles on the eggs perfectly. This card also took many punches: 1 3/4" Circle, Large Circle Scallop, Modern Label, Boho Blossoms and Scalloped Border. I topped it all of with my favorite brad from the Antique Brads assortment. The color combo for this card is Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. I also whipped up a bunch of these cards and put them at Vintage Market today. Baby cards seem to be going very quickly lately, so I think lots of people were busy this past winter ;)
