It’s a pool party!!!


Hello again…..did ya miss me??  teehee.  Don’t you just love the names of the papers from Stampin’ Up!?  This card is one of my new favorites.   Yes, I go through favorite stages…..where I’ll make a card and then won’t want to give it away cause I like it too much…..sooo silly!!  But anyway, here is my latest fave….

The colors are slightlyoff in the pic I think, but I love the combo of  the Pool Party with the Wisteria Wonder.  The Wisteria Wonder is a sort of purple/grey color andn I just love it!  The strips of ‘ribbon’ looking paper was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and then cut into strips and the ‘V’s’ cut out to make the strips look like ribbon.  Then a strip of Wisteria Wonder was added to the top of the embossed strips and topped with another strip of the Pool Party cardstock that had been edged using the Pinking Hearts Border punch……I really like that border punch…..wish list!!  Then my fave part of the card…..the gorgeous Wisteria Wonder Ruffle Ribbon……this ribbon is soooo cool!!  I just love the ‘wrinkled’ look of the edges of it.






Here’s a close up of the ribbon and the border design.   LOVE IT!!!







Isn’t it just a beautiful card??!!  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Happiest Birthday Wishes two part stamp set.  I love this set and it’s got so many and varried birthday sentiment stamps…..very cool set.






I should have left my favorite card for the last one…..tis okay though because the next card is very, very cute too!!  Stay tuned…..more to come.

My name is Yvonne Gebauer and I'm a cardmaker and have just entered the amazing world of Mixed Media and am LOVING it!. I'm a wife, a mother to two grown boys, and a grandmother to 5 amazingly beautiful grandchildren which I have to say is really all it's cracked up to be and more. I work full time and am really starting to think that work is getting in the way of life!! I have a large crafting room and I'm my happiest when I have a group of friends get together in this room and just have a blast. Every once in a while we actually create something! Or, when I get a chance to have one of my grandchildren over to just let them play and create what they want with what I have in my stash.....which is allot. My craft room is my therapy room of sorts. My place to go and just be......
