Bon Voyage Trailer card

oh my goodness, I fell in love with this adorable trailer shaped card from creativekuts.com
The pattern papers are from ms. sparkle & co. wood grain paper pad & DCWV The Marquee stack.  The purple card stock is from Neenah Astrobrights Gravity Grape.  The rest of the solid cardstocks are from recollections.  I popped up the windows and the cute girl.  I decided to make this a Thank you card for some of our great friends who love to go camping with their trailer.
For the inside I used more of the Neenah Astrobrights Gravity Grape purple cardstock. Using my Cricut Explore I wrote the sentiment you make me a happy camper! with my black Cricut pen and the Fontastic Fonts- DJ Terrific.  Below that I stamped Thanks for all you do! from HOTP Thank You!

Warm Gingerbread Wishes

I loved this weeks sketch over at Tuesday morning sketches so much I just had to make one more.  This time I thought a warm Gingerbread Christmas card would be nice.
I used some pattern papers from HOTP - Christmas sweets and Crate Paper - Snow Day.  Solid Cardstocks are from Recollections.   I used Simon Says stamp stitched rectangle to layer on top of the base card.  I used my stitched scallop border cut twice to add the topper which I popped up on foam tape.  I stamped the topper in pigment brown ink - Warm Wishes.  I wrapped red and white twine at the top and added 1 tiny star and 4 bigger stars that I die cut from my moon and stars die set.  I popped the larger stars up and made them look like they are hanging from twine.
I used my stitched stax oval dies to cut 3 ovals and place 3 cute little foam Gingerbread men (Dollar Gen) on them.  What a fun easy card design, perfect for making multiples for Christmas.

Christmas Apron Shaped Card

What a great Christmas card, I love shaped cards!  This is another fun design from Creativekuts.com
The pattern papers are from two different Cricut 6x12 stacks - polkadot from doodlecharms stack, red plaid from Christmas Cheer stack, Green holly and ruffles from stash.
Cardstocks are from recollections.  I popped up small pocket and large pocket on foam tape.  I added the green ruffle on the pockets, I used my purple cows trimmer to create the scallop ruffle trim. The face on the gingerbread man is from Peachy Keen Basic paper doll.
I colored in the mouth with red gel pen and dotted the eyes with a white gel pen.  I used glitter chalk on the cheeks.  I used a ball tool to round out the center of the wooden spoon. I used my moon & stars die set to cut the star I added to the top pocket.
I added a tiny seed bead to the glove/mit to look like an eyelet.
I used my stitched rectangle dies to cut mats for the sentiment.  I stamped Merry Christmas from Celebrate the wonder stamp set.  I stamped in brown and then clear embossed over it.  I added 3 deep red rhinestones to the holly leaves.  I added some red ribbon from my stash for the ties.
For the inside I stamped Warm winter Wishes and a little gingerbread man in brown pigment ink.  I also added another strip of the scalloped green pattern paper at the bottom to finish it off.

Sending Sunshine

I went to sleep creating this card in my mind for another fun take on the challenge over at Tuesday Morning sketches.  I thought a happy sunshine breaking out from the clouds would be pretty cute.
I started with an awesome Sun rays background I got from my friend Cheryl over at Creativekuts.com,  I cut it from a dark yellow cardstock and backed it with a lighter yellow card stock.  I placed on a 6 1/2 x 5 white card base.  I die cut 2 clouds and ran them through my Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder and brushed them all over with my Crafters companion clear glitter marker.
I cut a couple of circles to stack behind the adorable stitched sun die cut.  I stamped the face with Peachy Keen Basic paper doll face then colored in mouth with Spectrum Noir B01 and added some glittery chalk to the cheeks.  I used the clear glitter marker on each stitched sun ray.  I popped up the stitched sun on foam tape.  I ran a yellow glittery sheer ribbon around top of card and placed a label from Spellbinders Blossom Tags & Accents over the center of the ribbon.  I stamped Sending Sunshine from  Scarecrow Kisses stamp set in versamark ink and heat embossed with fine white embossing powder.  I brushed the edges of the label with the clear glitter marker.  I popped up label with foam tape.  I added a yellow epoxy dot to each end of the label to finish it off.

Flower Trio Happy Birthday Card

I created this card based on a fun sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  
I always love this color combo.
The green background pattern paper is from Photo Play – Summer day dreams stack,
I used my Simon Says Stamp - Bundle of stitched shapes to cut that out.
The pink striped and polkadot pattern paper are from Lawn Fawn  – Polka in the meadow
I used a stitched flag die to cut the banner but it only cuts the flag on one end so I placed it back in the die to trim the other end and make it a flag as well.
I stamped Happy Birthday in hot pink pigment ink and then again with embossing ink and heat embossed with clear for the sentiment
I placed a green glitter gum drop on either end of the happy birthday sentiment banner.
The flowers are cut from the smallest flower in HOTP - Bodacious Blooms Die set
I added some white pearl centers for the flowers and colored them green with a sharpie marker before attaching.

Sailing ship inter-active scene card


Hi there crafters, back again with an interactive card today.  Unfortunately for me the ship I used is a little too high so you have to actually move it with your fingers to get it to rock back and forth... but I still love how it turned out.    I watched a tutorial video from May May made it and just had to make my own version with the supplies and dies I had on hand.
For my card I used a 6 1/2 x 5" top folding card base.  Those awesome stitched waves are from a die set from Craftin Desert Divas - Outdoor Landscape Dies.  That sailing ship die is so phenomenal but apparently doesn't quite work for this technique although this same card without the rocking action would be super cute too.  I cut the ship three times once in a heavyweight white for the back section, I cut it again in brown and then I cut it one more time in white to snip off the sails and flags.  I colored the flags with a spectrum noir marker before attaching to the ship.  Now looking at it on the card I wish I would have made the little areas with the closed sails white as well but I want the ropes and the masts to be brown.  I have a die set of three cloud sizes and I decided to use the medium and small for this card.  The little tiny birds are from a Die as well that goes with the beach shack.  The sentiment is from a stamp set called party like a pirate.

We recently went on a cruise with another couple and I thought this would be a cute card for them.
