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.
Thanks for looking.

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.
Thanks for looking.

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.
