Animal baby card

This card was made for my nephew who recently had a baby. I've been wanting to use this set (The Angel Company's So Silly stamp set) for a while and just never got around to it. The images were stamped and then colored with inks using a blender pen and then I embossed over the entire square with stampin up iridescent ice embossing powder. I layered those images on the black and then on the background paper from the DCWV Animal Crackers stack. Thanks for looking.

Best Wishes flower soft card

This card was made using the Stampin up retired stamp set Happy Harmony which I stamped in Wild Wasabi ink and 2nd generation stamped for a shadow image. Then took some tombow glue to the first image and added flower soft. I also added some pearl skittles on the designer paper strip which is layered on top of a strip of chocolate chip cardstock that has been punched with the eyelet border punch from stampin up.

Elephant birthday card

This card was made for a friend who is turning 50. She loves elephants and also has a great sense of humor so this image was perfect for her. I cleaned up the image in inkscape and then cut out the image using SCAL and my cricut. The beer drops are done using skittles. She loved this card.

baby shower bootie - SCAL

For this project I had received a template from a fellow crafter Pinkcrafter99 for this baby bootie. I did not want to go through the hassle of cutting out by hand so I loaded the template into inkscape and created an svg for scal to cut on the cricut. I then cut out the bootie with scal. Because this is for a friends shower I wanted to incorporate the stamp used on the invitation with the bootie, so I stamped the image on shrink plastic and colored with permanent markers then I punched out with a 1 1/2" scallop punch, this made the button for the bootie.
Thanks for looking.

Halloween Peek-a-boo shaped card

Well Halloween is just around the corner and I decided to come up with a fun card. I knew I wanted to do a house card so I took a regular card 4.25x5.5 and made a peek a boo card. I cut a frame on top and chimney on the front of the card. On the inside of the card I stamped my image on white cardstock and layered on black. For the shutters I cut slits to form the slats on the shutters and then stamped and second generation stamped with the stamp set SU pocket silhouettes. The rubber stamped image inside is from the angel company.

Thanks for looking.

baby shower invitation

I have a friend who wanted me to come up with a baby shower invitation with the theme of turtles. Since I do not have any turtles in my stash I checked my daughters stamps and found a cute little turtle. My friend wanted to keep these simple so here is what I came up with. The baby outfit was not my idea a fellow crafter Kylie did this idea and I just added my version ( you can click on her name for the video.) The second card is a pocket card. I used the cuttlebug invitation embossing folder for the you're invited. Thanks for looking.

Stampin up Knobbly Gnomes cards

Although I cannot afford copics and currently use ink pads and blender pens, one of these days I wish to get myself some copic markers. The following two cards I have stamped and colored with my ink pads and blender pens and then embossed over the images to do some sponging. The stamp set is a retired set from Stampin Up "Knobbly Gnomes", the leaves and swirls are from The Angel Company (Sorry I do not know the name of this set.) Thanks for looking.
