Bundle of Joy

Bryan and I were so blessed to become an Auntie and Uncle again this month!  My brother and sister-in-law welcomed Elliott Andrew Piper into the world on December 14th.  We were super excited to get to meet him at Christmas.  Here is the card I made for this special occasion:

A lot of baby boy patterned papers were used on this card.  In addition to those, I used a couple of die cut circles.  On the white circle, I embossed two little feet and then added a flag to the top.  I stamped the "Welcome Little One" sentiment from Two Paper Divas  twice to finish the outside of the card off.

The inside of the card used another stamp from Two Paper Divas set called "Baby Clothesline."  Aren't the onesies so sweet??!!

Here's a look at the envelope, love those mini clothespins!

Here's a pic of me and the little guy! Pretty cute, isn't he?

Make it a great day!

Heart Flowers

Who doesn't love flowers?  And hearts?  Well, I thought why not combine the two??!!  I just love the set from Two Paper Divas called "Button Flowers."  I wanted to use that stamp for the stems and leaves of my heart flowers.  The hearts are from Two Paper Divas newest stamp set called "String of Hearts."

I stamped the hearts on white card stock and then cut out the three I wanted to use as flowers.  I decided to create a pocket on this card for my tag to fit into.  Patterned paper was used for the background as well as the pocket.  Pearls were added to the top two corners and the sentiment "Happy Heart Day" was stamped and popped up on the pocket.  To complete my card, I added lace to the top of the tag and a heart trim to the top of  the pocket.

Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards today to check out my latest Valentine card!

Make it a great day!

You & Me

The Christmas cards have all been mailed, so Valentine cards here I come!!!  Don't you just love Valentine's Day?  I certainly do and I love making cards for all ages!  Check out my latest card using a new stamp set from Two Paper Divas called "Heart Blocks."

I started my card by rounding the edges of the white card stock and heart background paper.  Then I used a scalloped border punch on a piece of pink paper and topped it with aqua and white check paper.  The "Heart Blocks" stamp set has been stamped on white paper, colored with Copic markers, cut out and then popped up.  I added a few mini pearls to the heart on the left side.  A pink seam binding bow was added as well as a few conversation hearts that say "kiss me" and "you & me."  Too fun!

Sharing Lots of Love

My friends at Two Paper Divas just released some "love"ly new stamps today!  What can I say...I'm in love! xoxo  

Check out my first card:
Growing up my parents had (and still have) a red old-fashioned gum ball machine.  It was awesome and it took pennies, not quarters!  I loved that machine especially when we got fresh new gumballs from the candy store.  So, for this card I decided to make my gumball machine the color red just like my mom's.  I added the heart candies, which I colored in reds and pinks with Copic markers and then topped with Wink of Stella for a sugary coating.  In addition to a couple of patterned papers for the background, I layered pink felt hearts, red buttons with white lace and the sentiment "May your day burst over with Love!"    

(using stamp set "I Chews You")

My next card features the new set called "String of Hearts."  I love the different sizes of hearts as well as the patterns on each one.  There's so much that you could create with this set.  I hope you'll check out Two Paper Divas website where there's more samples using the heart stamp set.  I colored the hearts using Copics and added a few rhinestones along with the pink checked paper at the bottom.  

The last card I'm sharing today uses Two Paper Divas stamp set "Heart Blocks."  I only used a small portion of the border stamp for this card.  This card has a layered look...I started with a gray heart background paper, added a pink patterned paper and then a gray flowered paper.  To that I popped a red heart, a pink seam binding bow and a few stick pins.  I stamped the entire heart border on white card stock, colored the section I was using and cut it out.  To tie all of my colors together, I used gray, pink and red.  Pretty cute, right??!!

Thanks for taking a minute out of the craziness of Christmas shopping to stop by Kirby's Kards!

Make it a great day!
