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.
Thanks for looking.

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.

Thanks for looking.

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.

Thanks for looking.

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.
