Elegant Place Cards–Shades of Spring

I made these place cards for my Aunt’s 50th Birthday party. I wanted them to be elegant and fun, but not too formal. Shades of Spring DSP made a perfect backdrop for the place cards, cut to 3 1/2″ x 2″. The Basic Black card stock was cut to just under 3 3/4″ x 4 1/2″. Then, I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the 3 3/4″ side and folded it in half as shown.

Next, I adhered the Shades of Spring DSP to the black card stock with SNAIL adhesive. The ribbon is Certainly Celery 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, which I tied around the inside of the place card and knotted in the front.

The names and table numbers were printed on the computer, punched out with the Large Oval Punch and layered on Basic Black card stock I punched out with the Scalloped Oval Punch. That was then attached to the front with a Stampin Dimensional.

Copic Colored Love Bugs Valentine Note

This is a fun 4″ square note card I made using the Level 1 Hostess Stamp Set Love Bugs. I stamped the love bugs on Gina K Luxury White card stock with Memento Black Ink (both are best for coloring with Copic Markers). I layered the white onto basic black and then added a 1/2″ Real Red Epoxy Brad (from the newest Ocassions Mini Catalog). The card base is Real Red and the sentiment “love bugs” is stamped in black ink on white card stock, trimmed out with scissors and adhered to the bottom

Tote-ally Tess Made you a Cupcake


Ever since I saw the stamp set Tote-ally Tess, I knew I was going to have her holding a cupcake! The set comes with stamping stuff, which is cute, but I hope they come out with other kinds of accessories for her too!

The card base is Pale Plum. I layered Shades of Spring DSP on to Basic Black card stock to make it pop more. Tess is stamped with Memento Black ink on white card stock. I colored her in with Copic Markers. The cupcake is from Crazy for Cupcakes, also colored with Copic Markers and popped up with a Stampin Dimensional.

The sentiment is from Tote-ally Tess stamp set, which I stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White card stock. Again, I layered it with Basic Black and attached it to the base with Dimensionals.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Hope 2010 is going to be a good year for my family and yours!
