A Star is Born

My nephew and his wife just had a baby boy a couple weeks ago. I haven't had the chance to see him yet, since they don't live by us. But in September, we will be going down to see them. Here is a card I made for the event. I'm going to write his name on the circle.

I used the July My Paper Pumpkin kit and the star framelits. Great set! I'm entering this over at My Pumpkin Challenge, wishes and stars.

Thanks for stopping by!

Daydream Medallions

I have been having so much fun playing with Daydream Medallions from Stampin' Up! I have had it for awhile and never used it. With SU's promotion of the bigshot this month, I thought I would make up some cards using it to show what you could do for my stamp class.

This first one was inspired by a sketch over at Colours and Sketch. When I saw it, I thought of this stamp set right away, and so began my playing.

The next card is for the following challenges. 

Christmas Card Callenges - anything goes
Complete Christmas - anything goes
Festive Friday- inspired by photo

I love the woodgrain stamp and use it a lot. Also love that you can color the pearls with the alchohol markers to match your color scheme.

The next ones are just more playing around. Some are inspired by pins on pinterest.

I love how by just changing the color you can get a totally different look. Plus, who doesn't love sunflowers!

I think I'm going to make this one for my next card club.

This one is just fun! I found something similar on pinterest. This is my take on it.

There are a few more ideas that I want to do but this is it for now. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
