Let's Celebrate & An Announcement

Happy Monday to you all. I hope you all had a fabulous Easter and were able to spend it with the ones you love. We had a very busy weekend spending Saturday with my family and Sunday with my in-laws. Last week was crazy busy for so I did not get much crafting done at all. I somehow managed to whip up a couple cards at the request of my mother-in-law. So I thought that I would share them with you today. She was looking for a card to give to a friend who just recently got engaged. I kept it pretty simple a did two different designs for her to choose from. I could have gone with a more specific engagement theme with these but I just kept it simple.

Both of these cards were cut from the Sweethearts Cartridge (Pg 80) at 4 1/2. I also cut the matching envelope but I did not put it in picture.

I think that this yellow one is actually my favorite out of the two, although I do like them both. For this design I decided to use the celebrate sentiment from my new stamps by TPC Studio "Greetings". This is my first time using stamps in any of my projects so I am still working with them. I am not sure if is the ink I have or the fact that I was using textured card stock but I had a hard time getting the sentiment to look right.

This is what I call the Tiffany Blue Congrats card. I just love the way the colors looked with the black card base. This is the card that my mother-in-law picked to give. I also used the CONGRATS sentiment from my new stamps by TPC Studio.
