Smooched Butterflies

My 8 year old niece had a birthday this weekend so I had to make a girly card.  This was the perfect opportunity to use my new Smooch Spritz that will be available in the Summer Mini starting next month.  I used the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on my Bashful Blue card base.  It gave a very soft shimmery effect.  I can't wait to use this spritz on more projects (and get the other two colors I didn't preorder).  I'm going to have fun with this stuff!!!!!

The four colors of Smooch Spritz coming are Vanilla Shimmer, Silver Foil, Gold Glow, and Log Cabin.

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Ink: Pixie Pink, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink
Accessories: Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Piercing Tool, Stampin' Dimensionals


Punch Buggy

No, no, not the VW kind.  The baby kind! 

So are you tired of the baby thank you cards, yet?  Sorry........I have a one track mind these days.  And a lot of thank you cards to write.  This baby buggy is so easy to make with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.  And using the 1 3/8" square punch for the "cut out" part.  This card was so easy to make.  Just piece everything together, glue it down, stamp your sentiment and you're done!

Stamps: Trendy Trees
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 3/4" Circle, 1 3/8" Square, 3/4" Circle, Double Circle, Scallop Square Punches
