A Few Cards by My Mother-In-Law!!

These are a few cards that my mother-in-law made while she was at my house the other day that I wanted to share with you all!!! Didn't she do a fantastic job!!!

The first one she made was "CASEd" (Copy And Share with Everyone) from my uplines upline, Debbie!!! She changed the colors and the saying! She used the Bloomin' Beautiful set along with the retired It's Your Birthday set and the linen background stamp. The colors she used for card stock were wild wasabi, chocolate chip, and whisper white. She used chocolate chip and wild wasabi ink. She colored the flower in using the blender pen and the watercolor pencils. She added a bit of dazzling diamonds on the flower. She used the ticket corner punch and the cutter kit to rough up the edges too! She finished it of with the wild wasabi striped ribbon!

The second card she made was for my husband and me!! It was for our anniversary which was last week!!! We have been married for 8 years!! She used Wanted, Polka Dots and Paisleys, and the Fast and Fun Notes stamp sets. She used Pixie Pink, Pretty in Pink, and Whisper White card stock. For ink, she used cameo coral, chocolate chip, and pixie pink. She also used the new scallop edge punch, the scallop circle punch and the word window punch. The ribbon is pretty in pink 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. I love how she created the one scallop circle with the rock-n-roll technique and the rhinestone in the middle! She also used the Cuttlebug embossing folder called D'vine Swirl.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!! Oh and any comments are appreciated and I will pass them along to my mother-in-law!!! :O)
