The Shabby Tea Room Week #11 Polka Dot Challenge

This was a fun card to make. I LOVE polka dots ! I used the Stampin'Up Polka Dot embossing folder to "dot up" white and pink card stock. I used Chocolate Chip/White Mini Dot paper from Stampin' Up Bella Rose Designer Paper for the background. The ribbon is chocolate/white dot from RibbonFX. The scalloped trim is from Martha Stewart's Collection.
The flower is from Iced Got Flowers 175, scalloped Whisper White, pink tissue paper,
and a tiny pink brad.
For the popped-up notes I used Stampin'Up Friends 24-7 stamps. I used pastel chalks and Stampin'Up Chocolate Chip ink to color them. I used 4 bronze mini brads for each pop up
I plan to send this card to my college roomate from 4 decades ago!

Cipboard Challenge Week 9 Shabby Tea Room

I made a chipboard memory book for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day and used leftover letters and a butterfly for this easel card. Since my husband and I will celebrate our 42nd anniversary on May 31, I thought that making an anniversary card for him would be a
good idea. (If he forgets the anniversary, I bet that after he sees this card he will be guilted into getting me a REALLY nice gift.)

I used 2 chipboard butterflies, and chipboard letters. I used a Stampin' Up butterfly die for
the green vellum 'shadow'. White pearl embellishments keep the card from slipping out of place.
I used the Top Note Stampin' Up die cut for the signature piece. All paper used is from Stampin' Up's Flock Together Designer Paper. The flowers are from KandCo. The branch was cut from Stampin' Up's Chocolate Chip paper.

Barb R

I used two sheets of glitter paper for the cupcake frostings and border trim background.
The cupcake liners are from a Starbucks decaf latte holder. I used silver shimmer paper
for the caption and several red bling hearts.
It is a simple card with lots of sparkle. I don't know if I will ever send it to anyone. It is
way too "sparkly" for my not so sparkly friends and family :)
