Here is a card I made for my cousin's Baby Shower. I really love how it came out! The invitation & room decor that she picked was monkey themed & I always like to match the theme, so this is what I came up with.
The card & envelope were made with Bazzill Bling cardstock. I'm not sure who makes the leopard paper that I used for the envelope liner. The card & envelope were made using the Martha Stewart score board. The pink flocked baby girl paper is by Heidi Grace Designs. The rest of the cardstock is all by Coredinations, except for the brown suede paper that I used to cut out the monkey. The purple background paper was made with a color cored cardstock, which is light purple on the inside. I embossed the dot pattern onto it with my Sizzix Texture Boutique & sanded the top to make the light purple appear. The monkey & rattle were cut out with the Sugar & Spice cartridge. I Stickled the hat & rattle, added a little bling to the bow, tied a ribbon around the rattle & gave her brad button eyes. The "BABY" was made with chipboard letters that have adhesive on both sides. I inked the sides & sprinkled pink glitter on top. The "oh baby" inside was stamped with an embossing ink pad, sprinkled with a pink glitter embossing gun & heated with a heat gun. 
Thanks for looking! Please feel free to leave a comment!

Hi! If you have never been here before Welcome! I am the last stop on the Blog Hop. My name is Erica & I love to craft! This is my first Blog Hop & I hope I do it right!! :) 
The theme is Spring/Easter projects & this is my part

I did a scrapbook layout of Easter 2010. All the papers & cardstock are from DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack & Spring Carstock Stack. I used a fiskars grass punch for the layers of grass. I used 4 different shades of green & one is a metallic green, which is a little hard to see in the picture. If you click on the photo, you can get a closer view. The "Hoppy Easter", chick, basket, bunny & eggs were cut out on the Cricut using the Celebrate with Flourish cart. The flower embellishments were from a pack of American Girl Crafts stickers that I got on clearance at Michaels. I used a lot of pop dots on this layout. Thanks for looking! 

But wait, don't leave yet. Did I mention that there's Blog Candy!?! Please become one of my followers & leave me a comment & you will be entered to win
