Happiest Birthdays to you!

Hello there.  I wanted to share some cards with you.  I was asked recently if I could make a Birthday card from a friend at my daughter’s school.  I was so inspired by my friend Karen who made some gorgeous cards using Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers.  I knew I had to get my hands on that stamp set.  I am not great with florals and this stamp set is a great one for me.  So, I stamped and heat embossed the large image with gold embossing powder onto black heavy weight cardstock and painted the images in with Metallic paints .  I then used a Mama Elephant retangular A2 die set to cut my panels out.  I also flickered white or gold paint droplets and layered one card with gold foil paper.  I used velum for one sentiment along with clear foam tape that still showed through a bit but was okay.  The word die is from Simon Says Stamp that I also diecut out in foam. I added my panels onto A2 black card bases.   Lastly I added sequins and layered the inside with velum along with sentiments.  It was a good thing I made two cards,  because my friend purchased both of them.  I hope you like my cards, thank you so much for stopping by!

Hocus Pocus!

Hello there.  Today, I make a Halloween card and memorydex tag using SVG files and my Cricuit machine.  Lately, I have been making a lot of embellishments with SVG files.   I had some witch legs laying around on my desk from a previous project.  I had watched a YouTube Tutorial by prettypaperthings and I was inspired how she created a crepe paper skirt.  I knew that is what I could do to these witch legs diecuts.  I added a pom pom trim with glittered tulle on the crepe paper skirt.  On my A2 size card,  I used a svg calderon and glitter cat sticker.  As for my memorydex tag I added a acalloped border with a paper punch, and added twine with a ribbon bow.  I also decorated the inside of my card with a fun saying ephemera.  I hope you like my fun card and tag for today.  Thank you for stopping by!

Pumpkin Everything!

Hello everyone.  Today I made a project for the Jaded Blossom Challenge-ABC September Monthly Challenge.  I chose the letter “P” for my project today.  I had this idea in my head for a week or so and it was late at night and I had to jot it down.  Do ideas ever get in your head at night? Meee tooo!! Okay, well I used these products from Jaded Blossom Pillow Box Die, Pumpkins, and Pumpkin Faces.  I first die cut the Pillow Box Die in a Milky creme color cardstock, it looked Fallish to me.  I stamped the Pumpkin outline image in LDRS CREATIVE Raven Hybrid ink all over for a fun pattern look.  I then stamped the stem outline image on top of the pumpkin image.  I then stamped the solid pumpkin image in Stampin Up Pumpkin Pie ink in my outline pumpkin image.  I stamped the stem in Close to My Heart England Ivy ink in the outline image.  I really wanted to use the pumpkin face images, but I kinda didn’t want them all over my pillow box.  So why not make a pumpkin tag?  So I did that but with the solid image stamps only.  Of course my pumpkin needed a pumpkin orange plaid bow? Right? I just love that cute face.  I used my copic markers to outline my tag, make some cheecks, and color the tongue.  I added white gel marks with my Gelly roll pen.  I used some Jute twine to tie my pumpkin tag onto my pillow box.  Lastly, I added festive Shred and these fabulous crochet pumkins my friend made me.  Perfect right?  I plan on gifting this pumpkin pillow box with crochet pumpkins.  I hope you like my fun challenge project, it was so much fun.  Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate it!!

You’re the Caramel Apple of my Eye

Hi there.  I made a card and some cute embellishments today.  I used a caramel apple SVG and made two different sizes using cardstock, pattern paper, and Walnut Stain Distress ink.  I used some Jaded Blossom dies such as Card Mat Dies, Scalloped Rectangle Dies, Bow Dies, and Mini Tag Dies 2 to make my card.  I used a Lawn Fawn stamp called Caramel Apple for my sentiment and to stamp the image inside my card.  I used a A2 heavy weight cardbase.  I also added Nuvo drops and fabric Gingham bows to the apples, and I think they look adorable.  I hope you like my project for today.  Thank you for stopping by!

Seashell Shaped Card

Hello there.  I made this seashell card today, I know what??  I am so happy I used this card die by Honey Bee stamps, my motivation were these cute mermaid images by The Greeting Farm called Make A Splash.  Aren’t they cute?? I just love them!!  I first heat embossed the images and then I copic colored them. I fussy cut them all out leaving a white border.   I die cut the seashell card in different papers, my main card base is using heavy weight cardstock.  I thought it would be fun to decorate both the inside and outside of the card.  As for my word die cut and shadow die cut I used dies from The Ink Road Stamps, The Bella Rose die set.  I also die cut “hello” in blue foam to pop it up.  I added foam squares to my mermaid on the front card panel as well as nuvo paste moonstone for my pearl button to rest on.  I also added some clear bubbles for fun.  In the inside of my card I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set as well as decorate around it.  I forgot to mention I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink for my top scene  in the inside of my card.  Isn’t it a fun card? Would you like to receive something like that? I know I would.  Thank you so much for stopping by, It makes me so HAPPY!!

Halloween Treat Bags

Hi there.  I’m back to share a cute and easy project with you.  I recently bought this envelope die from my friends destash page and I knew I wanted to make some Halloween treat bags.  How sweet is this sweet Halloween girl from MFT? I love her and have used her before in a project.  I stamped and colored her in with my copic markers and then fussy cut her out. I added some gel accents and glitter with my Spectrum Noir pen.  I made a crepe rosette  and added her to it with foam squares.  I then added some fun Halloween sequins that I got from a friend.  I also added these cute pumpkin mini clothespins that I previously made, they are perfect for keeping the flap closed.  I will be adding some fun treats inside for my friends for happy mail.  I hope you like my fun project for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Cake Day!

Hello Everyone.  Today, I made these cute tags using this adorable Kawaii cake image from Jaded Blossom called Cake Day.  I am joining in on August’s monthly challenge “Monochromatic.”  I first started off with the Jaded Blossom’s Scalloped Circle Dies using “PINK” carstock for my color on this project.  I stamped and heat embossed the cake with Versa Mark ink and Ranger Pink embossing powder.  I then colored the image with a few shades of pink copic markers.  I fussy cut the image out and added foam squares to pop it up on my scalloped die cuts.  I die cut some Dimensional Banners also from JB  for my heat embossed sentiments.  I added sparkly pink bows, pink tulle bows,  along with Pink Nuvo drops.  I hope you like my tags, they were really a lot of fun to make.  I hope you join the challenge or make some cute tags like these ones.  Thanks for stopping by!
