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 ~

Flower Garden Box Card for Mothers Day

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I love making box cards.  You’re creativity and imagination can go wild, because you can insert any kind of cut-out to create your card.  This flower garden card was made for my mother-in-law for Mothers Day.

2017 Mothers Day cardWhat is so sweet, she keeps some of the cards that we have given her for various occasions displayed in the china hutch. So for this card I decided not to make the sentiment visible so it can stay out all year.

My husband loved the way the fencing was around the base of the card 🙂

This card was made using my Cricut Explore Air, various Thin Cut dies used with a Cuttlebug machine, lots of Stamps and Ink.

3 Cheers For A Happy Birthday

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Birthday cards are really fun to make, especially when you have the perfect stamps and cardstock.  This card was made for my brother-in-law’s birthday.  Its always harder for me to make masculine cards, but I think this one came out pretty good.

Happy Easter Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing Easter.

Today I want to share with you the Easter Card I made this year.

Who says you need real eggs to color at Easter…I didn’t color real eggs, but I sure had fun coloring these paper ones 🙂

The card base I used is called a Z fold which is super easy to make, plus it gives your card such a great look.

Using the Cricut Explore Air machine I cut out the flowers, stems and grass.  Since you could see the back of the flowers with this type of card, I cut the flowers out twice so I could glue them to the front and back of the stems.

And it can’t be an Easter Card without some Bunnies and Eggs, so  I used a few stamps that I had of cute Easter bunnies and Easter eggs.  Colored with Copic markers and some Spectrum Noir markers, then cut them out by hand and arranged them on the card.

This was such a fun card to make and of course I finished it off with some “bling” using rhinestones to decorate the eggs.

Just a reminder, If you plan on purchasing some Cricut products, there is FREE SHIPPING till the end of the month, and saving money on shipping means you can buy more products 🙂

Happy Thursday Everyone

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Hope everyone is having a great day.  It started out raining here in North Florida but now the sun is shining and the geese and ducks in our lake are quacking 🙂

A few weeks ago I added some storage cubes to my craft room and you know what that means… you find some wonderful things.

Well I found a wood stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Stella Stamper.  The sticker says it’s from 1999.  It is the cutest set and in the middle of my cleaning/reorganizing I had to make this handstamped greeting card.

I stamped the image with tuxedo black memento ink and colored with Copic markers, then finished it off by adding some “bling” and its done.
