Birthday Wishes "That" folder

 Today I'm sharing another girly Birthday card.    I am finally getting the chance to use my All Occasion embossing folder also known as "that" folder that I ordered online from the UK.  What a fun easy card to make.
I started off with a piece of dark purple Recollection's card stock which I embossed with my All Occasion embossing folder.    I took my blending foam tool and added some picked raspberry distress ink onto the top portion of the card on the raised designs.    I then took my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes rectangle and die-cut the embossed piece to make my card front.   The adorable cupcake is from Cricut Best of 2009 Cartridge.   I ran the top pink frosting Layer through my Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder.   I then used my spectrum Noir clear glitter pen to brush all over that piece.  I then took a spellbinders diecut tag from twisted metal and cut and then embossed the white layer.  I laid the same diecut on a light purple card stock and traced the inside opening with pencil.   I then took my scissors & hand cut around that piece so that I could layer it over the top with the stamping.  I used Birthday Wishes stamp from my Hot off the press Birthday Greetings stamp set,  which I stamped with Momento Tuxedo black ink.   Before adhering those two pieces together with foam tape I brushed the entire outer edge of the white piece with my Spectrum Noir Clear glitter pen and also lightly went around the edges of the light purple layer with the same pen.   I popped the cupcake up on foam tape and added some little purple flower Gems across the embossed center portion of the card.   This would make a great card to mass produce for either card swaps or just to add several to your card giving stash.

Birthday Balloon card

I created this card today to go into some fun challenges this week.    And it will make a great girl's birthday card to stick in my stash .

I just love this awesome paper stack from DCWV, the bright colors and paint splatters are awesome.   The card layout is based on Mary's Sketch #2 over at Cardz TV.   The frames in the center are from Die-Versions whispers called nesting frame one.   The black card stock is from recollections and I cut the back layer with Simon Says stamp stitched bundle of shapes.   I added a cute pink balloon with the white shadow Layer cut from Cricut Artiste cartridge which I popped up on foam tape.   I added some pink and white bakers twine for the balloon string .  The saw tooth sentiment banner I also cut from Artiste Cartridge one in white and a larger shadow Layer in black which I also Popped up on foam tape.   The sentiment stamp is from Craftin Desert Divas - Celebrations stamp set.   I stamped that with Memento Black Tuxedo ink.  I also added two small pink gems on each end of the word banner.

Happy birthday lattice hearts pop up card

This card was super simple  thanks to another fun pop up card file from over at Creative Kuts!

I put this card together using pink and purple card stocks from recollections.  The dark purple background layer I ran through my embossing machine in the cuttlebug Simply Charmed Squares  folder.
I used a Die-Versions Whispers die called Birthday Present in pink which I cut a light purple shadow layer for with my scanNcut 2.  Before assembling the two layers together I took some purple glitter paint that I just purchased and painted the bow and a little scroll design down in the bottom left corner .   However it was much more like glitter glue then glitter paint so I simply sprinkled some purple fine glitter over it.   I added some cute designer recollection's heart Brad's that I thought went well with this card to the top two corners.   I had also picked up some cute sticky puffy banners that I decided to color purple with my spectrum noir markers before attaching to the bottom of my card.   I thought the lattice one would go well on this card.  That is it! Simple Simple!!!  A pretty and girly birthday card to stick in my card stash.

Fall Pumpkin Burst Card

 I decided to create a fun fall card this morning.   I started off with using the Center Sunrise card file from Cheryl over at Creative Kuts.  
I found the beautiful pumpkin that I popped up on foam tape from the Cricut Thanksgiving cartridge.    I used three designer papers for this project, the two in the Sunburst are from Paper Studio - The Classics paper pad and the orange on the pumpkin is from Cricut Animal Kingdom 6x12 paper pack.   The solid orange for the burst outline and tag are also from a Cricut 6X12 paper pad (Earthtones).  The Beautiful Pumpkin is from Cricut CM Cheerful Seasons Cartridge.  The tag itself is die cut from Simon says stamp - bundle of stitched shapes.   The sentiment Hey Pumpkin! is from Craftin' Desert Divas -  Hey pumpkin stamp set, which I stamped with versamark Ink and heat embossed with detail copper embossing powder.  I love how the copper blends so nicely with the deep Browns on this card.  I also added a couple of yellow gemstones I just picked up yesterday at the dollar store to set it off.... what a great find!  I grabbed up lots of colors.
For the inside I used the same orange paper as on the front of the card from Cricut which I die cut with the Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes.   Plus more stamping from the same adorable hey pumpkin stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas.

 Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my project today I hope to see you around again soon.

Lattice Pop out Heart Card

Good morning, Wow I have been staying so busy I have not been on here in awhile.  Today I want to share with you the card I have created for my Hubby for our Anniversary.  It will be 10 years this month and I still feel like the luckiest girl in the world. <3
So this card was actually inspired by the inside cut file.  The beautiful center pop out Design that my friend Cheryl over at Creative Kuts created for me.  Wow how stunning the trio  lattice pop out hearts are! 
So I searched through my supplies and decided I wanted to use my HOTP Lacy Things Stamp Set which I did a lot of detail work to achieve the final look.  I started by stamping the large heart on white card stock.  I ran it through my ScanNcut 2 and cut out the outside of the stamped heart.  I set that aside and added a shadow for the cut by sizing it up and cut that in black card stock to back it with.  I also stamped 3 small roses, two on a deep red card stock and the other (center) on white.  I used my craft knife to hand cut the center of the heart out.  I used my cricut to cut the lattice from another one of Cheryl's Pop out card files from white card stock.  I trimmed it to fit behind my stamped heart.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the heart in different shades of red, I also colored the center rose and the lattice with some of those same shades.  I decided to add die cut swirl (Die-Versions Whispers - Leafy Swirl) behind the heart cut from white card stock that I also colored in with red Spectrum Noir Markers.  Also I used foam tape to pop the red stamped Heart with lattice on it over the black shadow layer to give it some added dimension.  The gorgeous mat that I layered all of this onto was created with an edge die on either end of my card front layer cut from the deep red cardstock.  I knew the pretty lattice in it would match up well with the heart I created.  This die is - Crafters Companion Edge'ables Lattice Flourish Die.  The floral striped Paper is from an old paper stack called Rosewood from Colorbok.  I hand cut it to fit over the center of the die cut front.  I also stamped With Love from the same stamp set - HOTP Lacy Things.  All layered onto a black card base to complete the front.
For the center of the card I just simply cut Cheryl's awesome Trio lattice heart pop out layer twice, once in the deep red and once in the Colorbok Rosewood Pattern paper that matches the front.  I then cut away the lattice hearts on the pattern paper one and layered it over the deep red layer with the lattice hearts popping out.  So stunning!  I used the mats from another one of her cards.  The Sentiments were from a CD I purchased from Paper wishes - HOTP 1000 Card Quotes CD and printed onto the ivory card stock.  I then took the top layer of my sentiment mat which I cut out on my cricut, I drew a pencil line around it and had my ScanNcut2 cut it out.  I erased the pencil line and then inked the edges with Walnut stain distress ink.  Layered it onto black mat and placed them onto the inside of card. 

Of course I needed an envelope so I used more of the ivory card stock and my WRMK 123 punchboard to create this envelope.  I did some stamping from the same stamp set,  HOTP Lacy Things.  Plus I added one more item printed from that quotes CD up in the right corner to be used for the stamp and had my SNC2 cut it out for me, I inked the edges and glued it down.

I will be entering into these fun challenges:

Merry & Bright Christmas Page

Another 8X8 Scrapbook page for my Bestie's Friendship gift album. 

This this is my take based on the sketch over at Die Cuttin' Diva's for their Challenge this week.
I used my Cricut to cut the two rounded corner background layers.  the doily mat is from my WRMK Mini 8 Punch set called Doily.  the reindeer is from an old cardmaker kit in my stash, he is popped up on foam tape.  The back green polka-dot paper is just from my stash, the solid red is recollections card stock and all of the rest of the paper cuteness is from Pebbles - Welcome Christmas stack.  The 2003 I welded together and cut with my Cricut.  For the photo I used my WRMK corner rounder just on 2 corners to give it an interesting look.  The Ornament die-cuts are from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die - Holiday Tags.  I popped the smaller white one up on foam tape and stamped it in red chalk ink with Merry & Bright from HOTP Christmas Collection Stamp Set.  The ribbon is saved from a gift to be re-used. 
Green & white bakers twine bow is from my Sew easy stash of twines. 

I added bling... red rhinestones to my ribbon and to two corners of my photo and a bigger one to the Reindeer Nose of course.  Then I sprinkled some cool shaped sequins in red and green all over, I just got this from an online Peachy cheap deal at a great buy.

I am entering into these fun challenges:

Life's a Beach Luau Page

I have been working on an 8x8 Friendship album for my Bestie to give her for her upcoming Surprise party.  I have 6 more pages to go and only 2 more days to work on it so wish me luck my crafty friends, I am such a procrastinator!
 Such fun memories made at this Luau we threw in the Summer of 2000, I hope the one this weekend will be even better!!!   Ha ha ha I forgot I stole my Brothers until I looked at these pictures.  

I used some pretty purple corrugated paper to add some texture which I used my curved Fiskars ruler and a craft knife to create the curved border.  the rest of the papers I used are from a Neon stack by Craft Smith. The little Luau Girl tag is from an old Paper stack from my stash, I added some small purple gems to set her off.  She is also popped up on foam tape.   I also added some larger purple Gems to the Flower centers.  The 2000 I created in SCAL.

Rudolph Shaped Card

I am so enjoying making all of these Christmas in July cards, with my huge list it is always good to get a good jump on them early.  This adorable file is from Cheryl over at Creative Kuts.  There are also two star ornaments to accompany the candy cane and stocking and they can all hang from his antlers but I wasn't wanting all that bulk of ribbons for mailing this one later on.  I created the mouth myself in SCAL because I suck at drawing on faces lol.  All of the papers are Scraps from my stash.  I chalked the cheeks and added some white gel pen accents.  oh and I popped up his nose with a foam square.  I was looking for a fun simple card to create today with my limited time on this busy day and this fit the bill perfectly!!!  Thanks Cheryl :) file can be found here:

The cute inside stamps are from a card maker kit I got years ago.

Snowman Shaped Card

Hello crafty people!  I received my awesome new stamp set from Cardz TV called Merry Everything that I recently won... Woooo Hoooo!!!  So I just had to use it in the new Challenge Mary is hosting over there.
I cased this idea from  
I started by making a shaped card with my Cricut Snow Friends Cartridge.  I decided to do a shadow background for my card cut.  Then I layered my snowman on top in white.  I wish I would have done the shadow with the hat on, but oh well I still like it.  I used Authentique Cozy for my pattern and colored papers.  I love how it makes the vest and cap look like sweater material.  I used a peachy keen face stamp - Winter Faces Stamp Set.  I colored the nose in with spectrum noir #CR10.  The adorable sentiment stamp is from Cardz TV - Merry Everything!
I took this one outside on this scorching hot 106 degree Summer day!  def not snowman weather!  Ugh LOL
I added a second red fur edge to the cap and popped it up on foam tape.  I added the scarf with seam binding ribbon which I made crinkle by balling up and spraying with water and drying with my heat gun.  I also added some sparkly enamel dots for buttons and one on scarf and one more on hat pom.
For the inside a cut a blue card stock layer and cut just a bit off the top of the head so it would fit inside.  I simply stamped Merry Everything! from Cardz TV Merry Everything Stamp Set.  What a fun simple card that many would enjoy receiving for Christmas.  I could do several of these at one time for that super long Christmas card list.
