Anna Kate Name Frame

My daughter's friend had a birthday recently and I've been wanting to make a name frame, so this was a perfect opportunity. I really wanted a white frame, but couldn't find one, and didn't have time to paint it, so this natural one was the best candidate:

Stamp Sets: Letterpress Alpha, Paisley, French Script, Print Pattern
CS: wwhite, barely banana, pretty in pink, Candy designer paper (retired)
Ink: banana, pink
Ribbon: pink gingham, pink grosgrain, white grosgrain, gold cord, pink organdy (nonSU)
Other: nonSU hardware, soft subtles buttons

Baby Cards

Some quick cards~

This is a 3x3 gift card for a co-worker who had a baby boy. The pacifier is from the retired set Little Layers Plus. I used Crystal Effects on the nipple, and wrapped it with silver cord. The background is the little diaper pins from the Swell News set. The sentiment on the envelope is from the retired set Teeny Tiny:

This was a card for a friend who announced her pregnancy. I love the Swell News set girl. The designer paper is the retired Candy paper. The pale yellow organdy is non-SU:

Trifold Triangle & Pearl Ex Projects

These were some of the projects for March's Stamp Clubs

A Triangle Trifold Card

And cards using Pearl Ex powders: the first one uses Painted Pearl Ex a/k/a Floored Pearl Ex (on the 3 flowers at the left, can't see the shimmer in the pic);

The last card uses Poppin' Pearls in the background. The shimmer of pearl ex is difficult to convey in photographs, but it gets lots of "ooh"s in real life!
