Vintage Birthday

I won a blog hop last month and wanted to make a card with all of the items I won which included the background stamp, ribbon and roses w/bow attached.  I added a pre-colored image from The Paper Shelter, some gems and  a sticker sentiment from my own stash.  Here is the video I watched to learn how to do this Splatter Technique.

Prospecting Dad Card

I made this card for my roommate.  She asked if I could make something special for her dad.  I wanted to do something a bit more vintage.  She said he likes digging for gold, so thought I'd use this image.  I used a die to cut the "Happy Father's Day" sentiment.  I added a button and two metal cogs.

Double Step Fold Birthday Card

This fun card was made using a couple pre-colored Polka Doodle images (the butterfly and the girl).  I used some fun OLD CTMH (from when it was D.O.T.S) designer papers.  I added some flowers and two bows.  The sentiment was cut using my Cricut.

Oh Say Can You See...?

This card was made for this week's Oldie But Goodie post over at Catch The Bug I used an image called Stella Calendar July USA.   


I used a technique that is new to me.  Using my Shimmer Pens from CTMH I splattered the shimmer colors onto the white cardstock by flicking the color over my pointer finger.  I cut the image out using the Cricut.  I used some red and blue glitter cardstock for the background and added some red, white and blue gems.  The blue bow was my final touch.
Here is the video I watched to learn how to do the Splatter Technique

Birthday Fairy

Good morning and Happy Monday!

I was going through my drawers of fun things in my craft room and came across these packs of fun images from Lili Of The Valley.  They are all pre-colored and ready to cut out and create!  I used a birthday sticker, made my own flower, added lace and lots of pearls.  The butterfly (cut in half) is from Fred She Said.

Birthday Hot Air Balloon

This was made for the 'Things that fly' challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge.


For this card I used the adorable image called Hot Air Balloon Ride.  I used a scrap piece of white cardstock that I'd cut a scalloped circle from for another card a while back and added a scrap piece of designer paper that was left over, also from another card I'd made a while back.  I had fun using my scraps.  I added a sentiment, bow and some gems.  I did draw the stitching around the circle and around the white base.

Go Nuts

This card was made using this week's Friday Freebie over at Bugaboo called Fishingnut.

You Rock!

A thank you card for a guy who fixed a car or something...LOL  This fun image is from The Paper Shelter called Motorcycle Mechanic.  I did the background paper by using my CTMH Shimmer Pens.  The sentiment was cut using my Cricut.  I added some gems and called it good.
