I’m kind of on a monochromatic kick this month. This is a card we’ll make at the September Stamp Camp and one thing I love about Stampin’ Up! is that it is super simple to color coordinate. Marina mist cardstock matches marina mist ink (watercolored on the elephant’s hat), marina mist DSP and marina mist brads…. actually now that I look at the card… I accidentally used Tempting turquoise brads… oh well.

My BFF’s kids call me “cookie” (easier to say than Krissie, I suppose) and they both have a birthday next week, so I made the youngest a cookie monster card 🙂 It was super quick, and I stamped a birthday greeting inside.

Here’s another fun fold card that I’ve been wanting to make for a long time, its called a wiper card. When you pull the cards sides the little wiper slides over and up to reveal something fun! Lots of these cards use birds and butterflies but I thought it would be cute to use a balloon 🙂 Here’s a tutorial!

This is a “Never-ending” card. Its definitely a hit with kids, and apparently my husband was raving about how cool it was to others before I even decorated it!
