Other details...papers are from Urban Prairie by Basic Grey, ink is Brilliance Graphite Black and Berry Sorbet, brads are misc. from several Basic Grey collections, and I coloured in the image with my Copic markers. I added Stickles to the turquoise brad, and ran some of the paper through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots border strip. Nestabilities were used to cut out the image and border, and the tab that the sentiment is stamped on.

This is based on BSC63 from SCS and uses an image from Whipper Snapper. I know, I know, another Bella sketch and no Bella image...well, um...oh well! :) I paper pieced the coffee mug and used Copic Spica glitter on the 'foam' and my Copic markers for the handle, and also for outlining the entire image and 'steam' in one of the lightest warm grey colours. I inked the edges black and added black flatback pearls and that shiny orange gem from K & Company. The ribbon is misc. from my stash, and you might recognize the sentiment from MFT's Hot Stuff set.

I made this card for a friend who had a baby girl only about 8 days after I had Robin, so here's hoping those girls will play together nicely when they are a bit older!
I used BSC62 from the Bella forum on SCS for this card- even though I didn't use any Bella stamps or products...I think that is allowed every once in awhile. Instead, I used a sentiment from Inky Antics and paired it with some cool argyle prints. The patterned paper is from DCWV, while the embossing is of course, Cuttlebug. That pretty pink shade of cardstock is Sweet Blush from PTI, with matching stitched ribbon. Oh wait!!! I DID use a Bella product!! Those pale pink baubles are from Stamping Bella! To finish the sketch off, I used some Primas layered together with a pearl-type brad for the centre.

This card is a Valentine for my son's daycare teacher. Jake loves "Miss Jana-wynn" (his words). :)
This card uses Papertrey Ink's Teacher's Apple set, paired with Polka Dot Basics. I stamped my sentiment in Graphite Black ink, with the "Teachers" part in Pure Poppy, and cut it out using my Nestabilities, then sponged black ink around the edges. The matting for it is Pure Poppy cardstock, run through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder then cut out with Nestabilities once again. Ribbon is Pure Poppy also, with a little piece of black and white from my stash. The chipboard heart is Melissa Frances and was stamped with the smallest polka dots from the Polka Dot Basics set in Pure Poppy. I added a Bella bauble to the centre of it before adhering with foam dimensionals. The card base is Kraft and was stamped with Versamark with the same polka dot stamp as the heart. All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

We ordered these nice pink chocolate cigars to hand out when our baby girl was born, and they came with an ugly manufacturers label on them so we decided to jazz them up ourselves. Hubby wanted something that said "baby girl" on them, and I just happened (*ahem*) to have just the thing...Papertrey Ink's Limitless Labels set. However, in my sleep deprived state there was no way I was doing it myself so I put him to work. He used Graphite Black and Berry Sorbet ink and that's about the extent of it! Quick and easy, although I did watch over him carefully to make sure he cleaned everything up nicely when he was finished. :) Anyway- consider yourselves all 'virtual' recipients of his chocolate cigars!
