A Rose to say Hello

This is another card I did for Paper Temptress. 

I used a technique from Technique Junkies for this card.  It is called glossy outlines.  I stamped the flower in black and colored the image with Copic markers.  I then outlined the black lines with liquid pearls.

The base and the little banners are Cotton Candy Pop Tones.  I used  Pink Lemonade for the embossed layer.

I thought the main image would look good on Sweet Tooth Pop Tones.  The main image needed a mat to show it off so I used Jelly Bean Green Pop Tones.

This is a very easy technique and gives the main image a little pop.  Have a great day!

Lavender ATC


This ATC is for a swap I am in.  We had to use a napkin and the color lavender.  I used glittery modge podge to apply the napkin to the lavender card stock.

The flower was cut with my cricut. 

Fun to try and you don't have to be as intimidated because the size is only 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.

Sweet Ride


I made this card for a group I am in.  We were each sent multiples of the wagon image.  There are 6 of us participating.  The idea is to see what everyone comes up with.  I had a tough time getting started, but the wheels finally started turning.

I have not used a cricut in a long time and now I just can't stop.  The flowers and the pots were cut on a cricut.  I did cut out the wagon by hand, but my next project is to see if I can cut a stamped image out on the cricut.

Birthday Card for Uncle Bob


This is a special card for a dear uncle.  All the paper is from Paper Temptress .  I am usually a stamper for my card posts.  Several of my friends have been cutting vinyl with their Cricut machines.  Well this craft hoarder had a Cricut she never uses.  So I decided to get it out and see what I could do.  The cartridge used is All Occasion Box Cards.  I know you can do this all on your own, but it was so easy to pick the paper and press the button and let it cut.
The base is Light Blue Basis.  The green layer is Limeade Pop Tones.   It seemed like Gold Basis would make the layers pop.  The tag on the front is Cotton Candy Basis and Teal Basis is the background and the clouds (I did apply some white ink to tone them down a little.)  The red plane and banner are Wild Cherry Pop Tones.
Will definitely be trying this again.  It does fold flat so that it can be mailed
