"Your My Cup of Tea" card for my Husbands Birthday

Heres a card I Made for my husbands birthday . Hes 28! Today. I cant believe it! We've been together since we were both 15 years old so I just cant believe were getting sooo old!  LOL  Happy Birthday Honey!!!

For this card I used aqua mist and craft cardstock from papertrey ink. Love their cardstock . Its so high quality and perfect for card making so the card is not flimsy! The teacup stamp was just a dollar stamp I got from Michaels and the sentiment stamp is from a scrappy moms stamps set i use all the time. It has lots of birthday sentiments on it. And the twine I used is from the twinery. Hope he likes it!

"Bun in the Oven!" Card

Heres a card I made using the new Lawn Fawn Stamps I ordered from custom crops. I just think they are adorable! I also embossed the top and added some expresso satin ribbon from stampin up.

New House card I made for a friend

For this card I cut the scalloped card base from the wild card cartridge and the house was a stamp set from close to my heart  . I believe the stamp set is called Welcome to the neighborhood. Its kinda hard to see in the picture but I used  glossy accents on the windows to make them look like glass.

Favors I made for baby shower

 Made 4 batches of brownies. Needed sixty individual brownies
 Individually bagged each one after sprinkling them all with a lil blue dusting sugar (my bfs having a lil boy) Bought a 100 pack of cello bags from the baking section at Joanns then tied em all up with ribbon and curled each one

 Made a few different variations with stamps and cuts from the cricut. This lil boy above was cut from the a childs year cartridge. below was a stamp from michaels.
Diapers were cut out using a printable template. Each 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of cardstock yeilds 2 diapers
 Got them all ready on a plate cutting them small enough to fit their cello bag
 This is what I used to sprinkle the blue on

 My lil daughter was a big help. Shes four and was so happy to hand me each bag and ribbon!
 Stamped each one with my created by  melissa stamp on the inside of each one
I made these boxes to hold all the favors and made the bows on the front  . Used the same ribbon to match her diaper cake. I actually made a video on this trying to explain this better but Im having problems getting it to post from my flip so figured this would be best for now till I figure this out :)
