My Hybrid Baby Shower

Phew! What to mention first???

1. It's digital - mostly
2. It's dimensional
3. It's see-thru
4. It's a shaker
5. It's got texture
6. It's "Oh, so cute"
7. It's pink
8. It's sparkly
9. It's handmade


10. It has a matching tag and envelope

Now of course this was made (mostly) with My Digital Studio, so you just know I'm going to tell you that we could also have made matching place cards, party favours, cupcake toppers, straw "flags", invitations, RSVP cards, thank you notes, etc...

Honestly, I just love MDS. So if you would like to learn more on this amazing program contact me to host a demonstration and I could show you how great MDS really is. 

Perfect for the Friday Mashup 175

This cute shaker card is my version of the shaker card shown in the you tube tutorial by Louise Sharp

I'm loving this technique, it's called Bokeh (bow-ka) I think it looks like bubbles.
It is quite easy to achieve and the overall look is AWESOME but it takes a while to dry, and you need to be careful your colours don't bleed too much.

there is a great tutorial on you tube here

The Challenge I'm entering this Pinky card in The Friday Mashup 174 and the Bluey-Green one was supposed to be in the Just Us Girls challenge... too late...

I used the re-inkers with water for the background and used the Hello There Hostess stamp set

Keep Stampin' 
AND learning new techniques!

Make a Wish

Don't you just love this dinosaur? he is from the new set "Little Buddy Birthday" it's so adorable! His tiny teeth are hidden behind the balloon string but they are sooo cute! This little guy was a special order for a friend's grandson.  I am popping this little dino dude into the Paper Players Challenge 209  Clean and simple Kids Birthday. I think this is clean and simple (trust me it's much simpler than it looks! - aah, the tricks o' the trade) but you could always leave off the light blue layer... I used the Stars Decorative Mask, for my background. I think this tool will get a great workout as it's very easy to use and I think the results are spectacular (toot toot)...

Why don't you head on over to the Paper Players and check out the other creations...

Happy Birthday Dedo!

My Boss's father in law turns 80 this week and she asked me to make her a card.  Had to put ribbon on it just so I could enter the JuGS Challenge!

I cased this off Pinterest but I can't find the original creator (so sorry)

(H) I've Been Buzzy

LOL I'm all about the puns today!

My Avon Lady broke her hip last week so I made this card for her. I do hope she gets better soon, it's no fun being stuck in Hospital.

I couldn't get my photo editing to work properly so you'll just have to put up with this photo...
of course this is for a challenge & this week I'm joining in with the Just Add Ink girls and their colour challenge - although I couldn't find any So Saffron card stock so I just used Daffodil Delight.

I'm sorry I missed last weeks MDS post, I will make it up to you with an extra special post next week.
