Busy Weekend Needs 4 Cards

A few weekends ago was really full!  I had intended to post this then, but life got in the way, so I'm just getting to post now.  Well, I attended a baby shower on Saturday for a good friend's daughter.  She is having a boy.  This card was done with a metal stencil (first pounce back of stencil with powder) then lay it on Sparkle and Sprinkle sticker paper.  Next carefully add holeless micro glass beads and rub into the open areas.  Carefully remove stencil and apply glitter to the rest of the sticky paper.  Finally its just a matter of adding the layers of colored paper for the finished A2 card.  The mom-to-be loved it.

Then on Sunday we had the double celebration:  birthday party for our 3 year old grandson, Brian and a communion party for our 10 year old grandson, Diego.

The birthday card was e-a-s-y.  I used a piece of dp covered with Disney characters.  Cut them up into small squares, then put each onto glitter paper, then black paper and finally the purple metallic card base.  This was a perfect card since they had just gone to Disneyworld a month ago, and we gave him a share of Disney stock for his birthday.  Blogland isn't cooperating, so it wouldn't let me edit these pix ...sorry. Here's how the A2 card turned out:

Deigo's communion card was figured out months dear friend, Paula, had told me about a card she was going to case and I knew it would be perfect.  It uses a Spellbinders die of  crosses that she had and I didn't, so she cut a bunch for me before I left Florida.  It also used another die as a frame that I didn't have, so I used a border punch........  Its all done in off whites and I love how it turned out.  Finished size is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2.  P.S. Diego thought it was awesome.

Lastly, my hubby's great niece graduated from pharmecutical school a few months ago but we were in Florida and missed the party.  We were going to see her at the party so I needed to have her card.  I used SNS stamp set 435-Graduation multiple times and colored it.  Lay SNS super adhesive paper over stamped image, remove paper cover and then cover with holeless clear glass beads.   Use a Spellbinders die to stamp the words onto.  Layer with gold and black paper to make an A2 card.  Full directions for this card will be on the Sparkle and Sprinkle web site in about a week.

Hope that you found some ideas from these cards that you might use.  See you again soon.
