My sweet little niece turns one on Sunday and here’s the card we’ll be sending her.


I made my own roll of tickets by cutting a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock 7/8″ x 4-3/4″. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment three times and then used a 1/4″ circle punch (retired) to punch the little half circles in between the tickets

Here are the Mr. and Mrs. signs that coordinate with my previous post. They measure 5-1/2″x5-1/2″. The font used is Edwardian Script ITC with a size of 160. I printed the sentiment on copy paper first, die cut Whisper White cardstock with the Top Note die and centered this piece over the copy paper print-out. I used a bright light so that I could see through the cardstock to the print-out underneath. I adhered the top note piece to the copy paper with just a little bit of adhesive — not too much so that I could easily remove it from the copy paper once I ran it through the printer.

Here’s a closer look — there are rhinestones at the tips of the “M”.


After taking these pictures, I still felt like the card was missing something and ended up adding a hatpin with pearls and beads strung on it. I stuck it through the bow and it ended up being the perfect touch. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to take a picture of them so you’ll have to use your imagination. 😉

A co-worker of mine is getting married this month and asked me to make a sign to place next to a plate the guests will sign in lieu of a guest book. Her colors are black with orange/yellow fall colors. The sign measures 5″x7″. I printed the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock using the font Edwardian Script ITC size 44. The flowers were created by stamping the bold, solid stamp in full-strength Tangerine Tango ink and then stamping the highlight stamp in Real Red ink. I stamped the highlight stamp again in VersaMark ink and embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for some shimmer. I still need to make Mr. & Mrs. cards for the table they’ll be sitting at during the reception and will post those as soon as they’re done. Thanks for stopping by!
