More Birthday Step-Up Card Ideas

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am having so much fun with this Sizzix  Basic Step-Ups framelits die.  And, I am so happy I need to make a birthday card for my sister-in-law.  She loves flowers and I was thinking what a colorful flower/garden shop card I could create.

So using the Sizzix framelits die, along with my Cuttlebug and a lot of different paper flower punches I went to work and this is the finished card.

Here is a close up of the flowers, it amazing how much fun you can have creating with craft supplies that are just hanging around in your craft space .  I used numerous flower paper punches, scrap pieces of cardstock, foam to shape the flower with a stylis tool and some glue :)

For the flower pots I used rubber stamps that I had from Stampin Up and just covered up the flower images with my handmade flowers.

Step-Up Birthday Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

My nephew is turning 18 this week.  I really can’t believe how time flies, and if I am feeling like this I can only imagine how my sister is feeling :)

Anyway, I wanted this card to be fun, so thinking of fun I thought of candy, and this is what I created with those thoughts in mind.

I started with some candle stamps from the Stamps of Life, and colored with Copic markers.  (I made sure I stamped 18 candles..LOL)The saying was computer generated.

For the inside I used the basic Step-Ups die from Sizzix, and all of the candy and candy jars were stamped with a stamp set from Close To My Heart called Sweet as Sugar.  I cut each one out by hand.  All colored with Copic sketch markers,  and one candy jar was filled with different colored gumballs made from a circle paper punch.

This is the side view of the card so you can see how it really is 3-dimensional.   This die (Basic Step-Ups) from Sizzix is my favorite for the moment.  You can do sooooo much creating with it, so many possibilities.  Since it is a candy shop I wanted to create the look of an  awning that you would see outside on a shop in your local town.  So I used a border Framelit die and folded it around the base of the cardstock to get the look that I wanted.

I had so much fun making this card using so many different stamps and punches and dies, but I think it was worth it!

Having Fun With The Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am having so much fun with this Cricut Cartridge.  I have been seeing a lot of crafty bloggers talk about this exclusive Cricut Cartridge only available through Close To My Heart.

So, I had to find a demonstrator in my area and order this cartridge and get in on all the fun.  This was such a good purchase.  I think you have heard me say that before :)

There are so many images 700 to be exact, and the Pop-Up cards are too cool.  With Halloween coming up in the next few weeks I decided to play with this pop up function.  Using my Cricut Expression it cut perfectly.  The folding was a little tricky at first but with my score board it make it easier.

The inside of this card is so cool I don’t want to put anything on the outside but it looks sooo boring, so I decided to just make it super simple, and here is what I came up with.

Stickles added the perfect “bling” to this card.  I might have to add some to the inside too.  Anyway, thanks for stopping by and hope you have a Happy Halloween.

A Simple Handstamped Birthday Card For A Cat Person

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Every time that I make a greeting card I take a few pictures.  Well my file is getting really big, which means that I have not shared with you all of my fun creations.

This card was for my sister-in-laws birthday.  She loves cats, plus her cat is really fluffy like the cat in this rubber stamp by Stampabilities.  I wanted to keep the card simple, yet not boring so I embellished with some ribbon from Ribbon Trends and the small flower that I made with the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge and Cricut Expression machine.

Using Copic sketch markers I just outlined the image and it gave it just the right amount of color.  The very muted background was done with a sponge dauber and memento inks.

I have heard this saying before and I thought it was really funny but didn’t have a stamp, so I used my own handwriting and wrote the sentiment on the front of the card as well as the inside.  The rest of the saying inside reads… The more you have the more you want to gag.

The smile on the cat is so confident and is telling us that, I am cute and I know it :)
