Happy Retirement






This is a card for a girl at work that is retiring.
The base is Pink Basis .  I wanted a contrast so I went with Violet  Mica Metallic.  This cardstock is nice and heavy and did great with the embossing.
I decided that Cryogen White would be great for the tag sentiment.  The green I chose for the leaves is Spring Larch Glimmer.  The flower is Pink Basis and Azelia Mica Metallic.
Finished the tag off with beautiful two sided ribbon

Thanks (so much)

This is a card I made for a dear friend.  All the cardstock from this card came from the Spring Speciality Package. For a limited time shipping is free.

The base for the card is Aqua Basis.  The Silver Lustre (cardstock that has the stripe to it) is accented with Teal Basis.  Actually all the layers are accented by Teal Basis.  All the patterned cardstock is Cryogen White.  This cardstock is so versatile.  On two of the pieces I put ink on the embossing folder and ran it through my big shot.  The other piece I just stamped on.  This cardstock also has a nice sheen to it which is awesome also.

Card for a coworker

This is my card for Paper Temptress this week.

My goal was for more texture.  The base for this card is Aqua Basis.  The Aqua was also used for the cutout on the front.  It seemed I needed a darker color to accent the main image so the Teal Basis worked perfectly.  This cardstock is nice and thick so the distressing tool worked perfectly. The main card front is made from Opal Mica Metallic.  Using the mica metallic gave me a little sheen on the main image.  Finally Midnight Blue Vellum was used for the sentiment.  I accented FOR YOU with some blue stickles.

Thinking of you with flowers

I saw this cute little design on pinterest.  You could highlight anything in the cutouts.  In the post I saw they had little puppies peaking out of the holes.  I decided I wanted different colors of flowers.  I used pop dots to pop the flowers up.

The base for this card  and the tag are Baronial Ivory linen..  Love the slight texture.  The green layer is Spring Larch glitter
In the second picture you can see the shimmer of the glitter line and also the texture of the linen line of cardstock.  The flowers were stamped on cryogen that also has a little shimmer.

Purple Birthday

This was a late birthday card for my mother-in-law.  The middle flowers are a peg set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  I stamped the flowers on Sweet Tooth Pop Tones.

The base for the card is Fairway Mica Metallic.  I love this The mica metallic line of cardstock  because of the beautiful sheen it has.

The light purple layer is Amethyst Mica Metallic.  I could not get away from the mica metallic so the corners are Violet Mica Metallic.  Sorry my lighting is a little off.  The corners are the same color.

See you next time.  I think it time for a technique.

Safari Birthday

My grandson wants a safari birthday party.  The stamp set is from Stampin' Up and is called Playful Pals.  The die set is called Pyramid Pals.  I needed the jungle looking leaves and cricut came to the rescue.

The base for this card is Copper Mica Metallic.  The black layer is Onyx  Mica Metallic.  I wanted the elephant to be a light gray color and the silver Mica Metallic did the job.  All the mica metallic line have a beautiful sheen to them,  The sentiment is stamped on Opal Mica Metallic.

I needed a nice olive green for the jungle leaves.  Olive Basis did the trick

Welcome to the Tribe

Happy New Year everyone.  Here is my first card for the new year.  My daughter's brother-in-law and his wife are having a baby.  The theme for the shower is Our Tribe.

 I found this image on Apex for free.  It seemed just perfect.

They don't know if they are having a boy or a girl, so I went with brown and teal.  The base for this card is Hot Fudge Pop Tones.  The second layer is shimmery and is Aquamarine Mica/Metallic.
Finally the wording was cut on the cricut from Teal Basis.  The tent is also Hot Fudge Pop Tones.
