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.

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 🙂

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.

3 cheers to you cardI really like how crisp the colors look when I put the black layer onto the colored cardstock.  This card was super easy to make once I got started 🙂

Happy 1st Birthday Step Up Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I had so much fun making this birthday card for our great nieces 1st Birthday.

happy birthday

This Cricut Explore Air machine is the BEST and using the Design Space to create these fun looking cards is so much easier then I expected (since I am really not a computer person) 🙂

I also used the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder to get the flower image onto the white cardstock.

There are so many great things about the Cricut Explore and Design space but what I have noticed is that I am not wasting paper anymore. I know exactly where everything is going to cut on the cutting mat because your computer screen shows what piece of the image is going to cut next.  I think that’s SUPER COOL 🙂

Handstamped Make A Wish Birthday Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Did you ever make a card that you can’t wait to send?  Well I just did and I hope my niece Nicole likes it as much as I had fun making it for her.

I used Work Shops on the Go, Blossom Card Making Kit from Close To My Heart to make this card.  In this kit there are two stamps that have a design that looks to me like a piece of washi tape. Well, I love washi tape and have ALOT of it, so I decided to use that instead.  I think it turned out even better then if I used the stamps.  That’s why we make handmade cards, so we can create and make our own original works of art 🙂

For added dimension I wrapped the washi tape around pieces of cardstock, so it really popped off the card.  When I was done with the front of this card it looked great but it needed something, so I took a sponge dabber and lightly put the same color watermelon ink used in the word Wish and brushed the edges of the card.  It really added the perfect touch.

Now for the inside.  I used the stamp that came with the kit but added some stickles for some “bling” and to really make it look fun!
