Verve Visual stamps....I can't get enough of em!

This is my last post before I head off to California... I made this card for an employee that is getting promoted tomorrow. I really like the way this turned out. I used the patterned 6x6 paper and coordinating card stock from paper trey. This paper is awesome. I have used it twice already. I used the cuttlebug embossing folder with swirls for the front and some buttons I had laying around. I used the scallop punch from stampin up for the inside. It is so much easier than using the slit punch to create a scallop. The stamps as mentioned above are from Verve Visual. I have used these stamps a ton! They seem to be just right for any occasion.

Hope you have a great week!

September birthdays a plenty

Hello! I wanted to pop in and share this card I made for my good friend Stacey. I used the ChiChi Boulie stamp and then mixed it with the Bella Rose paper and the red riding hood red cardstock. I used a chocolate chip ribbon and my nestability rectangle to add something. I also used some diamond dust on the wings and cake. The card is really pretty IRL. I like the way this turned out! It seems like there are so many birthdays in September. I know of at least five right off the top of my head. It sure will keep me busy. Speaking of busy, I am getting ready to fly out to San Francisco for vacation with my husband this weekend. We are going to road trip around California. I imagine we will stop at some scrapbook stores along the way :0).

Hope you all have a great week!
