The bubbles are just different sized circles punched out. The handle was made using the extra large oval punch and then "biting" into that with the large oval punch. The More Mustard panels were rounded on the corners and adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla. The handle is Very Vanilla as well but the bubbles are in Whisper White. Stands out a little better in person than in the photo.
Enjoy the weekend!

Here is a great bouquet I made recently for a friends birthday - I love how it turned out. I used the ink colors Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit. The cardstock colors are Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, and Midnight Muse. The flower centers are the 2012-2014 In-color Dahlias. I attached the flowers to some wooden skewers and then stuck them into a block of floral foam I had squished down into the bucket. I then filled the bucket with some yummy Lindor balls. I put a strip of Midnight Muse around the bucket and then adherered a piece of Summer Starfruit 3/8 Stitched Satin Ribbon onto it. It was a little work but so so worth it. I will definitely be making more of these!!
Enjoy the day!

Here is the last card we did at my recent card class. Thought this was a perfect card for Mother's Day. A few of the ladies unfortunately do not have their mother's here anymore so they all stamped Happy Birthday on it. The cardstock colors are Regal Rose, Lucky Limeade, and Whisper White. The ink colors are Regal Rose, Lucky Limeade, Rose Red, and So Saffron. The stamp set is Bloomin Marvelous from the recent Sale-a-bration promo. Most of the ladies who come to my classes are not interested in purchasing any products- they just come to make cards- so they could care less if I use retired products, papers, ink colors, etc. Which honestly - sometimes makes things much easier! Especially with sentiments. The butterflies were punched out using the Bitty Butterfly punch in the spring mini. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Here is a card I made the other day that I CASE'd out of the catty. Thought about using it this weekend at my card class but decided it just wasn't up to par for me. I like it but I don't LOVE it, ya know what I mean?? I haven't used this beautiful background stamp much and I have been trying to find a card to use it on. It's called Parlor Prints. The ink used is Bashful Blue and I have to be honest here and say that I am not sad that it is retiring soon. I used to use it all of the time but ever since Pool Party came out - that has been my go-to blue and I haven't used this color in almost 2 years!!. It does go beautifully with the Rose Red and Certainly Celery butterflies I punched out of the Color Collection Designer Series Paper packs. I used the Scallop Trim Border on some Rose Red cardstock and mounted that behind the piece I background stamped. Added different sized rhinestones for some sparkle and there you go.
I hope you all have a great weekend. I will post more cards next week from my upcoming class.
