Easter cards with Baby Blossoms and more

I really enjoy working with the Baby Blossoms stamp set and the Springtime Vintage DSP.
I created this background paper with Baby Blossoms. I'm pleased with the way it turned out.
This is the card I created for my husband's birthday which was Saturday. He's such an oldie now (43) just like to tease him because he's about eight years older than me. I used the Poppy Parade cardstock and DSP patterned paper. The stamp is from the On Your Birthday set which I received with my starter kit. Oh and I used the flourish from Bliss in Crumb Cake behind the birthday sentiment.

Thanks for looking!

Cards from this weekend

I made this card with Friends 24-7 for a friend from work. I love these colors together. Also, this has become one of my favorite stamp sets!
Easter cards with similar sketch and Friends 24 -7

This is a CASE from using the technique of faux tearing. I love how it turned out!

What do you think?

Cards with Aviary, Bliss and Friends 24-7

These three cards are made with the Bliss set which is a SAB item I received for FREE. I love this set and wanted to recreate some of the cards from the SAB catalog. I tweaked them to what supplies I have. I love the flourish in this set. It's really easy to make your own background paper with this stamp.

This card was made using the Aviary Clear Mount set - which I L-O-V-E. I really liked this color combo too.

I made this card for one of my Besties, she loves purple so I used the Concord Crush and Pear Pizazz which was suggested from the Color Coach. My Bestie has a birthday coming up so I hope she likes this card! I used a sketch idea from Heather Summers, she is a Canadian SU! Demo and I adore her ideas. You can visit her at

I really find it easiest to CASE cards so that is what I tend to do.
Hope you enjoy!

Here are pics of some cards I've been making the last few days. I had tons of fun making these cards. What do you think?

My new video is up on YouTube

I recorded a video of the contents of my new starter kit from Stampin' Up! Go check it out on my YouTube Channel: ScrappinAli1

Patience is a virtue, right?

I am patiently (yeah right) awaiting my new Starter Kit from Stampin' Up! I am sooo excited!! I think I will record my haul and post my video later today. We'll see if I am able to accomplish that all in one day.

I will try not to accost the UPS man when he pulls up to my house. I will try not to open my front door and tap my foot anxiously as he digs around in his massive truck for my beautiful box of goodies.... I will try to be nice to him and not blow him off as I run gleefully through the house looking for the everyday household scissors. Especially since I will be seeing him often!

I am going to work on two cards for my Make and Take Workshop this Sunday. I will post pictures of those in the next few hours.
