Baby Carriage Gift Bag

Hello all My Crafty Friends!!
I have a cute little baby
gift bag to share with you today.

 I started with a kraft gift bag.
The next layer is a piece of ivory cardstock
that I inked with TH Distress Ink
in Fired Brick and Scattered Straw.
The next layer is a piece of 6x6 paper
from My Mind's Eye "Playdate" stack.
Not sure what pack the red paper is from,
but I cut this doily using my new
We R Memory Keepers
Lucky 8 Punch.

The top layer is my adorable baby in the buggy cute
from Simply Charmed.  I have embossed it, and
added a cute little Peachy Keen Face, I believe
it is from Wide Eyed Kids.
I cut these last year for a swap, and have never
used it.  I have about 8 of them so you may
see this image again!!

I mounted the baby buggy on an action wobble.
I added some buttons from October Afternoon
accented with Twine.  I also added some pearl flourishes
from Want 2 Scrap.  The ribbon at the top is
from 3 Girl Jam and the trim at the bottom is
from Webster's Pages.

Spring Card Set

This is going to be a very picture heavy post!!

First off, I want to thank everyone for
wishing my Sweet Pea a Happy Birthday!!
Here is a funny picture of her not
looking too happy to share her birthday
cake with her sister Jasmine!!
So, on to my cards.  I recently purchased a great
little card kit from Archiver's Annex.
It came with the Tim Holtz Easter Blueprint
stamps that I have seen elsewhere for $20.00
for the stamps alone.  The card kit was $20.00
and it included the stamps, some cardstock,
tags, a bottle of Stickles, a 6x6 MME paper
pack and a roll of Jute string!!
What a great deal!!  Here is the set of cards I made.
In all these pictures is is hard to see the card base,
but I cut them all at 4x4 from the brown cardstock
that was included in the kit.  The pattern papers
are from the paper pack included as well as
my scrap box.  I used a variety of products on
all the cards, I will list them at the bottom.
 On this card I used Twine &
Turquoise and Lime Green Stickles
  On this card I used the Jute String, 
Want 2 Scrap Bling &
Magenta and Cherry Ice Stickles

For this card I used Glitter Tulle, Want 2 Scrap
Bling and Lagoon Stickles

These next two cards are the first ones I made
and they do not include and dry embossing.
I used Webster's Pages Trim, Recollections
Bling and Yellow Stickles on this one.
I loved the butterfly so much, I used it twice!!
This card has sheer ribbon, Recollentions Bling
and Lime Green Stickles

Tim Holtz Easter Blueprint Stamps
Various Spellbinders Dies
Various colors of
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Various Sizzix and
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders

All cards but one, have a tag cut with My Craft Spot's
Tiny Tag Dies and are stamped with sentiments
from the Tiny Tags 2 stamp set.
The tags were embossed with Zing
clear embossing powder.

Hello - Bird

Ok, so here is my 2nd post for the day!!
I don't know about you, but I have
a drawer full of extra die cuts.
When I am short on time,
I like to look through my drawer
to see if there is anything I can
use for the project I am working on.
I had this window card already
cut out from Don Juan, I beleive it is cut at 6".
It was already embossed using a folder from Cindy Loo.

with the Spellbinders
Bird Sanctuary Die!!

I love the colors!!
