Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Celebrating special birthdays are more fun when you get to create a birthday card using a Cricut Explore Air Machine and rubber stamps ūüôā

Today I am sharing a card that I made for our niece Nicole who is having her Sweet Sixteen Birthday.¬† I am really starting to feel old… LOL

The cake was made with the Cricut Explore Air and the candles with a stamp and thin die cut set from The Stamps of Life.

I stamped 16 candles on white cardstock then put it through the Cuttlebug¬ģ Machine using the matching candle die cut.¬† I love die cuts because it so much easier and quicker then cutting each image out with a scissor. ¬†Colored each one using Copic Sketch markers.

Then the fun part came when I put it all together using ATG tape and also dimensional to make layers of candles.

Another great thing about handmade greeting cards is that if your creation doesn’t fit on a regular A2 size card, you can make it any size that you need too!

~ Happy Birthday Nicole ~

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.¬† It has been Super Hot here in North Florida, and as much as I love the beach and pool, on days this hot and humid, crafting in air conditioning is so much more enjoyable ūüôā

Since our move I am still re-arranging my “Craft World” and finding some really fun supplies that I haven’t used in awhile, along with some new items too.

So these cards have been made with fun color inks from¬†different manufacturers.¬†¬†The greens, bright blue¬†and purple are Memento Dye inks, and the¬†red, dark blue¬†and yellows are from Stampin’ Up.

All the stamps used are from the new Stampin’ Up Flower Patch set that also has the matching thin dies that you can run through a Sizzix or a Cuttlebug machine.

The white cardstock is from Close To My Heart, that was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder from Anna Griffin.

The great thing about making cards like these is that you can use them for any occasion.¬† It’s just when you stamp your inside sentiment that you make it a certain kinda card such as birthday, anniversary, thinking of you…..¬† But these cards were made for Birthdays.

I think I need to keep staying cool in my “Craft World” ~ ¬†Come back for a visit to see what I create for my next card.

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

WOW! ¬†I can’t believe that I just made this card.¬† My nephew Ryan graduated high school and will be leaving for college in 2 months.¬†¬† Where did the time go?¬† And if I am feeling like this I can’t imagine how my sister feels ūüôā

I used the Cricut Expression and the Wild Card Cartridge to make the graduation cap and tassel.  Also cut the tassel out 3 times so that the school colors were all there. For the lettering I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge.  Also embossed a piece of black cardstock with the Cuttlebug and a Star embossing folder from Bringing Crafts-Too You.  I just had to add stickles to the stars and also to the class of 2015.

~ Congratulations Ryan~

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 ūüôā

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.

Supplies Used:

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

This is a busy month for Birthdays in our family and I have to also make some cards for birthdays that were last month (sorry Luke and Riley)¬† So I really have to be creative and not make the same card over and over.¬† I am loving this bakers twine, it adds such a perfect accent to all kinds of creations ūüôā

2014 rileys birthday card

Using Memento tuxedo place ink I stamped the image of the flower twice, since I wanted to use a pop dot for a layered look.  Colored the flower with Copic sketch markers, and added some Stickles for the extra shimmer.

Then took out the Cuttlebug and cut the green cardstock using a Framelit Labels die from Sizzix.   Added some bakers twine by just wrapping around the paper and tied a knot.  Put the pop dot on top of the knot and added the stamped flower.

The card just needed more, so again I used the Cuttlebug but this time used an embossing folder of Big Dots, and craft cardstock.¬† I still needed to stamp happy birthday someplace, and I found some metal frames in a container with some rhinestone brads. This wound be perfect.¬† Since the brads went in the back of the Big Dot embossed cardstock I put another layer of cardstock behind so it wouldn’t tear the white base card.

The great thing about using a Cuttlebug is that you can cut images with thin metal dies (Framelits) and also emboss with all of the embossing folders on the market.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope this birthday card gives you some good ideas when you are making your own handmade greeting card.

~ Happy Birthday Riley ~
