These cards were from several obligations I needed to fulfill.  My beautiful granddaughter, Hannah's seventeenth birthday is this month.  I had a gift card to give her as well, because, well, have you ever tried picking out a birthday present for a 17 year old?  Finally, I was part of a card exchange and thought it would be great to showcase one of our new embossing folders and of course, the January Stamp of the Month:  S1901 Card Captions (only available until January 31st).


The birthday card above features the Years of Sweetness Stampset as well as Something Fierce papers.


Next a close up of detail.  You can't really see the clear shimmer brush on the cupcake very well but it does show up in real life:


Next on the list is gift card holder:


I am really loving the confetti dots!!  Next is inside


Finally my exchange card. Now the funny thing about this was that one was how I meant it to be and the other was not.  But, they both looked pretty good and when I was holding them in real life, I had no real preference.

And the second:

Inside of the card:

Papers:  Something Fierce WYW Kit; Clover, Raspberry, Lemon, Carolina and White Daisy Cardstocks

Something with Animals


I participated in a card exchange with some friends and the challenge was "something with animals".  It could be any kind of animal and since hunting season just started this past weekend, I decided to use the Hunting for Words stamp set (which is now retired) along with the Fresh Air papers (which is also retired).

My card was a standard size card:


Here is a close up of the detail:


And another angle of the card:



Papers:  Fresh Air Scrapbooking Kit; Nutmeg and White Daisy Cardstocks
Stamps:  Hunting For Words (Retired)
Inks:  Momento Black Ink; Nutmeg Exclusive Inks; Water Color Pencils; BG10 Copic Marker
Embellishments:  Mocha Opaque Pearls (Retired); White Burlap Ribbon
Other

My granddaughter, Mikayla was able to get a deer on the junior hunt over Teacher's Convention.  She said she only wished her's was as big as that.  She did a great job and there's going to be food on the table.  She appreciates that blessing of the life of the deer for her food.  Actually I'd say it's a pretty nice buck!


Happy Hunting and Happy Stamping!
