Happy Cards for Special Occasions with Ivy

Ivy is with us today to share two totally clever cards, one for a wedding and another for a birthday!

The first card is a unique wedding card that Ivy made at friend’s request! The taking the leap pun refers to the wedding on leap day! This super fun design is great for non-leap year weddings as well! She added the custom message using Smitty’s ABCs and Black Licorice ink!

Ivy used the cute frogs from Toadally Awesome along with “congrats”! She placed the frogs in a pond made with Stitched Pond and Stitched Pond Frames. Then she added the movement with Slide on Over Semicircles!

Ivy used beautiful Shimmer cardstock for the pond and lotus flowers to give this some special occasion pizzazz!

Ivy’s birthday card uses our new birthday mini set, Year Ten! Inside this card is where all the fun happens with Pop-Up Happy Birthday and Oliver’s Stitched ABCs! I love the festive color scheme featuring Cilantro, Peacock and Sugarplum cardstock!

The happy little Year Ten cactus is so sweet! The trio look adorable framing the pop-up greeting!

Thank you so much for sharing this happy cards with us today, Ivy!

Today is our showcase of Swan Soirée and its coordinating dies, Stitched Pond Frame and Cattails Border! I just swan to say… you’re going to love this stamp set!

Make a cute pond for swans, frogs, and other critters with our Stitched Pond Frame. Finish the scene with lily pads, cattails, and grassy details. The Stitched Pond Frame pairs perfectly with Stitched Pond, making it great for creating shaker cards! Create backdrops for frogs, swans, and other cute pond critters with this cattails border.

Nichol‘s amazing card combines our three featured sets today! She tucked the pond behind the Cattails Border and added more die cut images from the Stitched Pond Frame! I love how she colored the Swan Soirée images using Jellyfish ink and no-line coloring!

Yainea‘s card is simply gorgeous! I love the pretty watercolor moon! The gold embossed sentiment coordinates wonderfully with the simple gold cord embellishment!

Megan‘s amazing Double Slider Surprise features Swan Soirée in a beautiful nighttime scene! I love how the touches of yellow pop against the shades of dark blue!

Elena used Swan Soirée to create a lovely Mother’s Day card! The colors she chose are so soft and beautiful! I love this layered pond scene!

For her so pretty in pink Swan Soirée design, Elise kept the scene sweet and simple with just a bit of ink blending in the background! She used one of her signature styles by swapping out a word from the sentiment and replacing it with Oliver’s Stitched ABCs! The pretty pastel Shimmer cardstock is the perfect shade of pink!

I love the gorgeous color combination that Tammy used for her Swan Soirée design! She created the layered scene with Stitched Simple Wavy Borders and Grassy Border!

For this gorgeous Swan Soirée design, Elise used a combination of Cattails Border and Grassy Hillside Borders to frame the swans floating in their stamped pond!

Chari‘s cheery baby card is a fun combination of Swan Soirée and Stitched Pond Frame! I love the bright colors of cardstock she used for the cattails, lily pads and lotus flowers!

Kara used Swan Soirée to create a gorgeous wedding card! I love how she added the vellum veil to the swan! To frame the sweet swans she die cut the Cattails Border from Lacy Heart and layered a smaller Lacy Heart in the background!

Grace used the Magic Iris and the Magic Iris Add-On on this fantastic card! She created a shaker card with Stitched Pond Frame and the original Stitched Pond! She sandwiched the shaker bits between two acetate layers so the Magic Iris with the changing sentiment can be seen through the pond! So clever!

Marine used the Magic Picture Changer to make this magical card with a white swan and a black swan as a nod to Swan Lake! I love how she used the cattails, lily pads and lotus flowers from Swan Soirée to set the perfect scene!

Latisha created a beautiful sky with the Cloudy Stencil! It’s a lovely background for her sweet little Swan Soirée scene!

Elise placed her swans in a gorgeous nighttime scene with Bayou Backdrop and a fantastic ink blended pond and sky!

Audrey‘s striking design combines the new Cattails Border with our Bayou Backdrop! Together they are a lovely backdrop for a sweet baby card!

Lynnette‘s card is so filled with happiness! The Hello Sunshine Remix sunburst is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful Mother’s Day card!

Grace‘s gorgeous design shows how perfectly the Swan Soirée images fit in a Center Picture Window Card! I love her beautiful ink blending in shades of blue and green to create this amazing nighttime scene!

Jenn‘s lovely design uses Slide on Over so the swan looks to be swimming in the pond! She decorated the scene with die cuts from Stitched Pond Frame!

Nancy made a simple Swan Soirée scene with just a little ink blending in the background, the color looks great with the pond stamped in Kiddie Pool ink! I love the Bunting Borders cut from Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock! The sentiment is heat-embossed in silver on the card front and continues on the inside!

Chari‘s gorgeous home decor terrarium is amazing! I love how she filled in the Swan Soirée scene with Birch Trees!

Elise used Stitched Pond Frame in such a clever and charming way! The shape of the pond is the shape of the card! I love the bright colors and those googly eyes get me every time! Her sentiment is from Offset Sayings: Birthday.

Jenn‘s card is so beautiful! I love how she tucked the swans behind the Cattails Border and used the pretty Dandy Day paper as the sky in the background!
