A Birthday Card and Gift for my Nail Tech

I have been going to the same nail gal "Star" for the last 7-8 years.  She does such a fantastic job!!  Her birthday is next week so I thought I would make her a card and a gift.  The last card I made her was probably 4 yrs ago and I used this same image...it just so happens to look just like her!  haha  The image is from Delicious Doodles...Oh how I miss her stuff!!  Star's favorite color is purple and "sparkle", so I made sure to make a purple card and a sparkly sign.

For the card I used some purple lace, some flowers and some vintage earrings as an accessory.  I also added some gems.


For the sign I used some holographic vinyl and some silver glitter paper.  I added some animal print gems around the picture frame.

LEMON BASKET AND CARD

Because of a fun Facebook Group I follow I made these yellow/lemon/lime/tequila baskets.  I posted one of the cards already.  For the card I used a Bugaboo image called Frame it - JJ - Life gives you lemons.  I added a bow, a gem strip and some gems.  I used an embossing folder on the solid yellow and swiped a green stamp pad over the embossing folder to make the green dots stand out.

No photo description available.

When Life Gives You Lemons

I am thinking about making a lot of 'booze' related cards.  In Idaho we have a huge Facebook Group of ladies who've been dropping off baskets of goodies.  The original group was called 'booze fairies', this was created as a way to bring joy into each other's lives during these dark dull days of Covid.  I've delivered a few baskets, in fact, the last couple had some of my handmade cards in them.  I made this card using a Bugaboo image called Frame it - JJ - Life gives you lemons.  This card was inspired by the current challenge over at If You Give A Crafter A Cookie.  They're using this image:


I used a DP from a paper stack I had, some yellow carstock that I used an embossing folder on, a yellow bow and some gems.


Wouldn't this be a fun card to get along with a couple lemons and a bottle of tequilla?  Yeah...I think I'll do it!  LOL

Pop! Fizz! Clink!

I went to JoAnn Fabrics the other day, they were giving away freebies w/purchase, this fun set was one of those.
Plus it came with three dies to cut out the bottle, one of the shoes and the person.  I had a good time with this card.  First I created the background by using the splatter technique and my CTMH shimmer pens.  Then I punched out the background with a lg Marvy punch.  I colored the images and went over them with the Shimmer brushes.  I added some fabric flowers, lace, flowers, feathers, a bow and gems.
