Center step birthday card

Another Birthday card to share with you today.
This time, for one of my Sister's whose birthday is the day after my Daughter's.  
I decided to use some of the same cutting dies but a completely different look.  Bodacious Blooms and tiny things with wings and scallops and circles were all of the cutting dies I used plus a Happy Birthday stamp all of these were items purchased from paper wishes.  

The back ground was a large rubber stamp I bought years ago and then I heat embossed it with black zing embossing powder.  Pus I added a pale yellow ribbon at the bottom and some yellow bling inside the flower.

The center step card base is my own file

On the inside I stamped again with the flourish stamp for the background, no heat embossing this time and then I added some more yellow with a sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs - Calypso's Sentiments

I am entering this card into a challenge at:
Cardz TV Go-To Galz # 34 - Color Pop Challenge

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project, I hope to see you again soon :) ~ Eva

Birthday Blooms Card

Today I wanted to share a Birthday card
For this card I used my new die cuts Bodacious Blooms from Paper wishes.  I love this die set!!!  I also cut some Dragonflies out of purple foam from my Tiny Little things with wings set also from Paper Wishes.  The Background purple paper is so pretty and that is also from Paper Wishes.  the Pink paper is a handmade paper I won last year from a blog hop, it is so delicate and pretty with little flowers all over it and this beautiful translucent shine.  I used my Martha Stewart corner punch, Optic Dots on this.  In the center I used a 1 5/8" scallop punch out of the same iridescent pink paper and stamped a Birthday greeting in the center.  I used jet Black stazon ink but because of the iridescent shade to the paper it made the ink stamp silver.  To stay with that same theme I decided to spray the Purple flowers with perfect pearls mist, iridescent red which really comes out pink and added the perfect touch to this card.  I also added some pink Bling to the two side flowers and viola :)
for the inside I used the same papers, some Swiss dots embossing on the solid purple and the Martha Stewart punch around the page optic dots set on the floral paper.  I used a velum sentiment backed in white paper and a couple more purple dragonflies cut from foam to set it all off.
I am entering this card in these awesome fun challenges:

6 Christmas Hat Cards

Hi there, more Swap Cards today.  Christmas theme this time :)
I used an adorable Christmas Hat shaped card from Birds Cards, I love her files they are so adorable.  The Holly leaves and berries are also from Birds Cards, I added some green and red stickles and inked the leaves edges in green.  I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder for the white fur trim and ball.  The Merry Christmas is from my Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge.  then I searched though my stash and found some adorable Christmas buttons to add over the a in each sentiment
 I used my needle nose pliers to remove the button hole on back of most of them, their were a couple of flat ones.
for the inside sentiment I used a fun Christmas stamp from one of the stamp sets I bought from Cheryl Scrapinmini last year during her de-stash sale.  Sorry I wish I had the name of it for you.
That is it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my projects.  Going to go hop along in my friend Connie's Back to School Blog Hop now.  here is the addy if any of you would like to go hop along with her too.

Valentine Swap Cards 2013

Today I want to share a new card I made for my Card Swap Group.  This time we have 4 theme's to make 6 of each.  Valentine's Day which is the group I just finished.  Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I love all three of these so it is so hard for me to pick one style for each category lol.

Here are some of the items I used on this card.  I used an ink Brayer and inked the Valentine Folder from Sizzix Valentine set before running it through my cuttlebug for the bottom of the card.  

I used a pink paper with a white core on the Sizzix heart embossing folder from Love Set and sanded the top raised layer and added two pink gems on the XX.  

The top portion is all one piece of scrap-booking paper, I hand cut along scallop.  

I used Paper Artist's Circles & Scallops dies for the top two circles.  The inner circle sentiment I created with my computer in Craft Artist and printed out then cut with my 1 7/8 circle die to fit on top of the 2 1/4 scallop circle.  

I also added a couple of pink flower beads filled with Pink Polymark dimensional Fabric paint.
For the inside I created the sentiment on my computer in craft Artist, I printed 4 at a time to fit the inside of each 5 1/2" tall X 4 1/4" wide cards.

 Here are all Six cards for my swap, Yay!!! 1st category complete :)

If you look on my page, My embossing folders and cutting dies here:  You will find which set each of these come from with a photo of each set.
