The poppies are from one of their Stately Flowers set. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
The background plaid papaer is from stampin up and the printed paper is using stampin ups Dictionary background stamp. I have some fabric washi tape under the ribbon and added a bow, some rhinestones and glitter.
This image is colored with copic markers.

I saw this card on Papertrey ink, make it monday or something like that. I am still deciding about it.
You cant really put white or anything on the inside or it will mess up the outside and if you write on the inside it will show thru also.
But the dies and flower stamps are all papertrey ink.

This is another card I cased from Pinterest! Don't you just love Pinterest??? I sure do!
Can you see my pink and white polka dot tea cups in the background?? I love those. I went to Teas Me in Hillsboro with my BFF Joan for her birthday and picked up these teacups for myself.
I have a whole china cabinet full of tea pots and have never used them. I am going to have to have afternoon tea here at home some day! I will just have a little tea party!!
Anyway on to my card. I used the SU Stippled Blossoms set. This set is so much fun and so elegant.
I also used the border embossing folder and die from su. Love those too!! I dont know why I dont use them more often!! They add such a nice border to any card.
I believe I used pink pirouette and melon mambo for the roses. I cut out the roses and used foam tape.
I believe this whole card except the rhinestones is stampin up.
I made this same card only with out the rhinestones and it turned out really nice to but I gave it to Kati for her birthday so I dont have a picture of it to show!

This is another card I cased from Pinterest. It is using Canteloupe Crisp and Crumb Cake. Plus some Early Espresso. The colors together are really pretty!
All the punches used on this card are SU.

It is using the SU Flower Patch stamp set and matching dies. It is the first real clear stamp set from SU I have used. I really like it.
I die cut the flowers out first and then stamped them on the die cut pieces. I am finding that I like to do it that way more and more often. Although SU dies are easy to stamp and then punch also.
This card was simple and fun to do!

These are some more new papers I got when I was at the stamp store in Tigard. I love gingham and flowers. They are my favs and go perfect together. I used Cantaloupe Crisp cardstock which I dont use very often and used it twice last week.
I colored the kitty with copics and fussy cut him. I used some Elizabeth Craft design dies on the leaf and flowers and added a pearl to the center. The sentiment is from a new stamp set I just recieved from Papertrey Ink.

Well, the wedding has come and gone! Here are a few wedding pictures that Kati sent to my phone.
My sister in law took the official pictures. But we dont have them yet. She took over 1800 photos!
Doesnt she make the most beautiful bride??
Actually, I just got the top picture this morning. That might be one of the official ones that were taken.
They went out after the wedding and took them at other locations.

I colored it with copic markers and inked around the edges. Added some ribbon. I used a new border punch from Martha Stewart across the bottom and used some new papers I had just gotten at the stamp store when I took a class.

Only two more days until the wedding. The last couple of days I have been working on these place cards and the holders. I looked at several places to find the holders and no one seems to carry them anymore so I decided to make my own. I got a package of round discs at Michaels, a wooden dowel and some clothes pins. Kati had made a really cute board that says Mr & Mrs and painted it with this purple paint and decorated it so I used the same flowers and paint to make these match it.
I even used the purple glitter paint we used on top of the plain purple paint to spray the papers to make them shimmer and add some sparkle.The sparkle doesnt show up alot in this picture but it is there.

out in the heat for hours. The bottom picture is in the house. For some reason Keke loves to be under the blankets.
They are like little babies, they look so sweet and innocent when they are sleeping!

This are new dies called Susan's Gardens ( I think). The class took 2 1/2 hours. Half of it was making the flower. Part of it was waiting for everyone to catch up before we could go on to the next step.
It was a fun class. The teacher was really nice. She was from London so I got to hear her great accent also. The two white spots are reflections of the light on the dome so they really arent part of the card.
We also recieved a die cut tag, an embossed piece to match the front of the card and a pattern to make a box to fit this card into. I havent made that yet, but this card is more like a gift than just a card.

Here are the cards I made out of the sea of flipflops I showed yesterday. I got my inspiration from a card on pinterest . My card doesnt really look much like it. The layout is the same tho, but thats good right. You get your idea from somewhere else and then make it your own?!
I used the Flipping Out stamp set and matching dies from Papertrey Ink. This is the birthday card to go with the gift and then I made 6 matching cards that say "Life is better in flipflops". I have to totally agree with that. Especially the nike ones that I call pillow tops. They are the best.
Anyway, I put the 6 cards in a gift box and wrapped it with a bow.
I hope my birthday friend loves the cards. I think she will.
