Hello stampers! It is time for another great sketch with the gals from Stampin’ Royalty.

And here is my card, perfect for a birthday!

Super fun sketch challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week. Quite and Cute. For more inspiration visit

This card is featuring the Cool Treats product suite. The designer series paper is the star of the show, although the die cut ice cream cone is pretty dang cute. I used a couple of the designs from the washi tape for the bottom part of the card and I love how it all came together.

I also want to announce the winner of the Designer Series Paper from the last ICS Blog Hop! Our winner is kbeemer1!! Congratulations! Send me an email with your address and I will get this off in the mail to you.

Have a great week friends!

April International Blog Highlights

Welcome back to another International Blog Highlight. This month our theme is weddings. I know that we will have a few weddings this year and I do love making handmade cards for these special occasions. This month I did something non-traditonal and I am super happy with how it turned out.

Non Traditional wedding card for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight. For more information and inspiration visit

The base layer is Very Vanilla, even though it is hard to tell and then I cut out the Detailed Floral Thinlits on a sheet of Urban Underground Designer Series Paper. I then layered a piece of vellum behind that and did the stained glass technique for the flowers. The tiny pearls give a dainty accent to the flowers and the soft stain ribbon gives it an elegant touch. This is so bright and fun for a summer wedding, don’t you agree?

I would love it so much if you would visit Kylie’s blog and vote for my card. The top 10 cards will earn a spot in an International Blog Hop and I would love to participate!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you like my card please be sure to leave me a comment and subscribe to the blog so you never miss a post!

Gold is so trendy for spring and this paper is just the thing to make this pop. I wanted something that was quick, easy and yet elegant. The sentiment and the mini circles are embossed with Gold as well to bring all elements together. The Gold Thread was an added touch that I really like.
