1st Girly

Hi folks! 

Afraid I've had a lazy day today - well, not that lazy! Got a bunch of cutting and sewing done for my latest sewing project (I'll tell you more about it later). I just haven't done any card making today. Perhaps tomorrow I'll crank out a couple! 

I thought I'd quickly share a little card I made for a friend's little girl who was 1 last Sunday. I forgot about it so this was a last minute card. 

Stamp Set: Chalk Talk
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe
Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, So Saffron, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizzazz
Punch: Itty Bitty, Bird Builder
Big Shot: Chalk Talk, Typeset Alphabet
Embellishments: Dazzling Details

Okay so its just a really simple card with confetti flowers. 

I used the embossing stylus to give the flowers some shape. I really wanted to do something in the centre, I didn't want to use rhinestones or pearls so I went for a cheaper and super speedy option...dazzling details. I let it dry while I was out at church and then it was ready to deliver later that day! 

Happy Stampin',


  1. That's a nice card that seems very simple to make. I love the idea of the dazzling details for the centre. I am making a series of 20 thank you cards for somebody and I was looking for a cheap solution for adding a touch to the flowers. I'm thinking Crystal Effect woukd work as well. Thanks!

    1. Thank you! Yes, its cheap and easy but adds done sparkle, crystal effects would work too and you could sprinkle glitter over it for some dazzle. I like that this option is also postal friendly! you could also try just adding a little dot of a bright punchy colour (small circle from owl/cupcake punch or hole punch would be perfect! Or punch with the glimmer paper for sparkle. Lots of ideas there :-)
