Sending Birthday Wishes

Hello My Fellow Crafters:

Hope you all had a great weekend 🙂

This is a birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law.  I was really happy how it turned out, especially since I had cardstock and ink that really worked well together.

This card was made with a stamp set from CTMH called “From The Heart”.  What I really love about the stamps from this set is that you can stamp layers of each flower/leaf  and use different shades of color if you like or just color them with Copic markers like I did for this card.  Layering cardstock and using pop dots  adds the perfect dimension.

A Fun 17th Birthday Cricut Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I love making box cards.  There are so many cricut card ideas floating around in my head LOL.  Cricut Box cards are the perfect canvas for any holiday or special occasion, and you can customize your card so easily.

This is the box card that I made for our niece who was celebrating her 17th Birthday.  She is now allowed to drive and I thought this would be really cute way to celebrate this special birthday.

I used my Cricut Explore Air machine to cut out all of the images.  For the stars in the front, I used the Martha Stewart “fringe” scissor and then punched out stars with a Fiskar paper punch.  Glued each star onto the front and back of the fringe. (Yes that was a lot of work but it was well worth it because i think it looks great) 🙂

And you know I needed to add some “bling” on this card and what better then some Martha Stewart ultra fine glitter.  I think it was the perfect choice.

Sending Turtle Birthday Wishes

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Another Birthday card.  I can’t believe what a busy card month June has become, which is just fine with me cause I love creating and making Cards  🙂

For this card I used Close To My Heart products.  The Stamp & Thin Cuts are from the “Some Kinda Wonderful Cardmaking Bundle” which is super cute.  Then colored with PrismaColor pencils.

For something a little different for this birthday card I used a scalloped circle thin cut and made a circle in the middle of the card.  This way the turtle could be seen from the front of the card as well as the inside.

I then put two of the thin cuts inside one another so it would cut a frame to put around the turtle so he wouldn’t look lost.  I did all the cutting with a Big Shot Machine from Sizzix.

Happy Fathers Day Stand-Up Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Hope you all are having a great week ~  I have been busy this week making graduation, birthday, and a fathers day card.

Why is it so easy making a card for girls, but you have to really get creative when making cards for guys 🙂

So this is what I came up with this year for Fathers Day.

This is what it looks like closed – just your ordinary card, but look what happens when you flip-it open…

… you have a 3D Stand-Up Card.

It was so much fun designing this card.  I used a Sizzix framelits die cuts and Big Shot for this card but also used my Cricut Explore Air machine for the sentiments.

~ Happy Fathers Day ~

Birthday Card Ideas

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

As you all know I love making cards, and I want to share a Birthday Card that I made for our nephew.

For the base of the card I used solid black cardstock and then added this cool cardstock from Close To Heart that is called Jeepers Creepers.  The stamp set and thin cuts are from The Stamps of Life.

Had to add some bling so I added some liquid glass to the camera lens and some stickles to the flash for that extra bling 🙂

~ Happy Birthday Luke ~
