Breast Cancer TP mini

This mini was made for a friend who has someone battling breast cancer. I wanted to make something she could look at through those rough times and brighten up her day. This was made from toilet paper rolls and I used the cuttlebug ribbon die on each of the tags. I kept this fairly simple so it wasn't too overwhelming.

Simple Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are some of the hardest cards to make. Here is one I recently done for a freind. The stamp is from Stamping Up. The image was stamped on white textured cardstock and cut with a rectangle Nestabilitie die and layered with a scalloped Nestabilitie die cut from patterned paper. The background is white cardstock that I ran through the Cuttlebug with a Stampin Up embossing folder.

Baby Shower banner and table decorations

I was asked to do some decorations for a baby shower and this is what I have come up with.  The banner was made using the SCAL program and my digital cutter. I welded the letters on top of the bottle so they would cut out of the bottle and placed green cardstock behind the letters. The top of the bottle was embossed with the Cuttlebug and the swiss dots folder.

The baby carriages were made using some designer series paper and cut out with SCAL.  The images on the flowers are from The Angel Company stamps and colored with markers, they were then cut out with Nestabilities scallop circles and embossed, the outer scallop is a Stampin Up scallop punch that was embossed with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder. The images are mounted on wooden skewers that were cut in various sizes. I placed batting in the carriage to help hold them in place and topped the batting with felt.

Teacher Appreciation

This card was made for Teacher Appreciation Day, my daughter has a wonderful teacher this year and we wanted to let her know that.
This is a regular A2 size card. For the chalkboard I stamped a woodgrain stamp on a tan cardstock and cut a frame with nestabilities square dies, this was layered on the top of a piece of black cardstock that was stamped with white craft ink. The ribbon is from Micheals. The apple, chalk, backpack, scissors and ruler are cut from a Disney Cuttlebug cut and emboss die. I used stickles on the scissors and glossy accents on the apple.

Simply Charmed Bunny with homemade flowersoft

This bunny was cut from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. I hid the face features so I could use a Peachy Keen critter face stamp. The carrot was ran through the Cuttlebug using a Stampin Up embossing folder and the leaves were cut twice, the top layer was feathered. I had taken a styrofoam ball and shaved it with my grater, I then applied glue to the areas I wanted fluffy and sprinkled the shredded foam on top. I love the texture it created.I had used this same technique on a bigger bunny for a bulletin board at work for a spring layout.

Magic birthday card

This card was made for a friend's birthday. I used a stamp from Stampin Up and colored it with copic markers and cut out with square nestabilities. that was layered on a square scalloped nestabilitie. Using a stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the image on a piece of acetate to match up with the colored image and adhered both pieces with a Stampin Up round tab punch (I adhered one end to the back of colored image and the other end to the front of acetate so that it created a hinge). This is a 5x5 card with two background layers, the acetate and image are sandwiched between a layer of cardstock that is mounted to the card with dimensionals, when you pull up on the tab the colored image is revealed under the acetate. I framed the image with a scalloped square nestabilitie with a square cut from center and embellished the corners with brads.

Cars shaped card

 This card was made using my gypsy and the Disney Cars cricut cartridge. I used the route 66 sign and welded two of them together to make a shape card. I then cut out all the layers and used the gypsy to hide contours and make the shapes the way I wanted. The stamps are a fiskars stamp set that I used to emboss the background and stamp the car. I colored the car with watercolor pencils and added some sparkle to the detailing with squibbles iridescent.

Cow birthday petal card

This card was made for a friend who loves cows.  I wanted a cow standing up and did not have one on my cricut cartridges so I used a program to convert an image for cutting. I love how I can use these programs to compliment my cricut cartridges. The cow was cut at 3.5 inches and layered. I shaded around all the edges. I used a piece of DCWV's Flower Shower paper pack for the background and grass. The blades of grass were cut from Disney's Pooh and Friends cricut cartridge to add a little more dimension. The party stamp is from Studio G. I then incorporated the envelope to become part of the card by mounting the card base to the envelope. The envelope was cut from Stampin Up's dsp. I then stamped on a circle with a Stampin Up set and made the circle into a tag. The ribbon is from Stampin Up.

Hello Kitty Butterfly with Peachy Keen Stamps

I tried out my two favorite things on this card (Gypsy and Peachy Keen's Wide Eyed Kids face stamps). If you have not tried Peachy Keen stamps, you don't know what your missing. Kathy's stamps stamp perfectly without much pressure and they bring life to your projects.

I used the butterfly from Hello Kitty Greetings cricut cartridge and hid the contours in the face and body for stamping and highlighted with a jelly roll white gel pen.  The designer paper is from Prima "Rock on Love". The side accents are from Gypsy Wanderings cricut gypsy cartridge. I will add a sentiment later.

Paisely birthday card - hula hoop dog

This card was made using the Paisley cartridge that my daughter and I made for her friend's birthday. She picked out the colors that she thought her friend would like. The background papers are from the Flower Shower stack from DCWV. I used Scribbles glittering crystal 3d paint on the collar and hoop for some added sparkle. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set embossed with white embossing powder ad placed a bling on each side with my i-rock.

So many cakes birthday card

Wow it has been awhile since I have posted, sorry about that. I will try and post more often. Here is a card that I had made for a friend's birthday. I used the Prima Rock on Love stack that I had in my stash for the papers and a Stampin Up stamp. The frostings were made with liquid applique for the puffy white and glossy accents on the chocolate and cherries. The stamped image was colored in with Stampin Up markers. These are vibrant colors for me so it was a little bit of a challenge and looking at it now I should have shadowed underneath the cakes. I used Martha Stewart twine as the bow on the side.

Decoupage Vintage Wooden Box with mini

This was a Michael's dollar box that I have covered using Vintage Findings paper from my stash. I first painted the outside of the box with white craft paint. I then tore the papers and adhered to the box with modpodge and sanded the edges and front button. I distressed the button with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink. I was going to distress all the edges of the paper with Tea dye but forgot (maybe next time). The flower was made from dictionary paper that I cut out on my cricut with Accent Essentials cartridge and distressed with Rose Red ink and then formed into a flower, added a brad in the middle and I added some diamond dust to the petals. I then added a bling swirl freehand with my i-rock. I then added some lace that I had picked up at Joanns. The mini book was made from the same papers layered on coasters. I included 4 pockets that I included inspirational tags on. The tags were stamped with various Stampin Up stamps. I used my music score stamp to add more a background to the plain cardstock pages. The mini is binded with ribbon. The little flowers were made with the cover paper by using Stampin Up's 3 flower punch and 2 flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch.

Hello Kitty Gift set

My daughter's best friend in kindergarten just recently moved away and she wanted to make something for her. So we took out the Hello Kitty Greetings cricut cartridge and cut out a few Hello Kitty shapes. The purse was made using Stampin up card stock and micheals ribbon and the sentiment is from a micheals dollar stamp. Inside the purse we had made a small beaded bracelet with a Hello Kitty bead in the middle for her to wear. The purse came out 4x4 squared. The brad on the purse is from Target. On the card we had used Stampin Up papers from a mat stack. The sentiment on the card is a stamp from "The Angel Company".

Thank you card

This card was made using a stamp set from Me and My Big Ideas. I stamped the flower and colored it with my Stampin Up inks. I cut out the flower and curled the petals and placed a brad in the center. I stamped the image on rich razzleberry cardstock from Stampin Up and placed the cut flower on with dimensionals. I added some black bling with the i-rock and then matted the rich razzleberry on a white cardstock, I then used a stampin up label punch for the sentiment and inked the edges and placed behind the white mat. The photo corners are from a Stampin Up punch and I ran them through a cuttlebug folder. The card base is white, followed by a rich razzleberry mat and then a dsp mat which has the ribbon attached.
