Happy Birthday

This is a stairstep card I made for an aunt.  You can actually make this card and do the measurements yourself.  I got a really good deal on a die so I used that.  It is nice because you run it through the Sizzix and you are done. 

The picture gives you an idea of what it looks like, but the real thing is so much more dimensional.

Butterflies for you

Most of  the cardstock in this card came from the Treasures line.  I love it because it has a slight texture.  The Green is Grass and the tan is Crafty Brown.  Actually the two patterned papers are the same color cardstock.  I have some really big background stamps that I have not used much.  There was a curved handle you were supposed to use with them, but it never really worked well.  Now I have a Misti tool for making sure stamping comes out perfectly and I am back into using them.
 
The cream colored piece on this card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  The stamps on the Ivory piece are from Stampin' Up

Get Well Soon

 

This is a card I made for a dear uncle.  I am just addicted to my new cricut.  This was one of the projects and what better paper to use than the many colors and perfect heavy weight paper from Paper Temptress.

Every piece for this project is from the Malermo Pearle and Mica Metallic line because they both have some sheen to them.  I am going to start with Malermo Pearle line.  The beautiful blue of the base is Abysse Malermo Pearle.  The red lines are Vermillion Malermo Pearle.  I used Emeraude Malermo Pearle for the green lettering.

Because there are so many colors in the Mica Metallic line it was perfect for the rest of the card.  The yellow small dots are Amber Mica Metallic.  All the pink is Rose Quartz Mica Metallic.  Last of all I used Flame Mica Metallic to cover the whole back and shine through for the well.

Let's Go Camping


This is a birthday card for my son-in-law.  He really likes being outdoors and camping.

The base for this card is Dark Orange Basis.  I stamped all the images on Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  I again used my cricut for the wording.  The background on the wording is Light Green from my stash and the top layer is Olive Basis.

The tent and chair is from Stampin' Up and the tree branch is from Stampscapes.

Swirley Scribbles


Happy Sunday to everyone.  I got the beautiful die set  from Stampin' Up called swirly scribbles for my birthday.  The round die cut images in this card are from that set. All the paper is from Paper Temptress

The base card is Ivory Feltweave so it has a bit of texture to it.  All the other layers are from the Mica  Metallic line.  The dark brown layer is Bronze Mica Metallic.  The swirls are stamped on Aquamarine Mica Metallic.  The swirls are cut from Starburst Lichen Glimmer.  I wanted to add a little color that would pop so the yellow is Amber Mica Metallic

Lastly the sentiment is stamped on Coral Mica Metallic.

The little silver circles are called CANDI from Craft Work Cards.  The nice thing about these  are they just need a small piece of adhesive to bind to the card.

Happy 4th of july


All the red on this card is Wild Cherry Pop Tones.  I wanted my white to be shiny with some texture and the Vintage Silver Lustre definitely did the trick.  What would a 4th card be with out some more shimmer, so I used Blumarino Incadescent to bring attention to the middle.  The middle design was cut with a Cricut.
 
Hope this gives you some inspiration!

Simple Pleasures


This is sort of playful card and sort of fun to do.  The white part of this card is Solar White Classic Linen.  I took a stencil and spritzed it with water.  I then used water color crayons on it.  Once I got the colors I wanted on it I turned the stencil over onto the cardstock.  This made a wonderful base for finishing with some stamps.

The light pink layer is Pink Lemonade Pop Tones.  The blue accent layer  and the butterfly are Blue Ice Sorbet.

Have a great day.
