Smarty Pants Grad Card

For the Z Fold Easel Card fold I used this tutorial:
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L4unNoY_Io  from Dawns Stamping Thoughts I cut an extra small piece for the inside fold on mine and then went with my own elements and design layout. 
That really cool large background words paper is from paper wishes HOTP Busy scrappers School Pages stack.  It has some really neat words on it from high school like most likely to succeed, prom, School Dance, College Bound,Gym, Home Ec, Arithmetic and more... Soooo Fun!
The other two smaller cuts are from some pretty scraps in my stash.  I used the star blast edgelits die to cut matching purple cardstock which I placed slightly under the pattern paper.  The sentiment mats are from Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Three die Stack in two sizes.  The sentiment and owl are from Darcie Stamps - Smarty Pants.  I used the two small stars from the edge die to accent the sentiment.
I went over all 5 Star cutouts on the edger with wink of Stella clear glitter pen and also the 2 small stars on the sentiment mat.
On the inside I cut another pattern paper from my scraps and cut it out with the large stitched rectangle - Bundle of Stitched Shapes - Simon Says Stamp dies
I stamped sentiments from two different stamp sets
For someone very special - YNS - Cupcake Day Stamp set
Congrats Graduate - Stampin up Wooden stamp set - All Year Cheer III - Stampin Up 2002
The diploma is from the same Darcie - Smarty pants stamp set
The stars are the other three left from the star burst edge die cut

Hey gill-friend card

I had such fun making this card for my best friend whom I miss terribly right now ..... from the ink blending and stamping to the die cutting and paint splattering.  I doubt that mermaids have gills but this still seemed like the perfect sentiment stamps from YNS - Sea Sentiments for this fun ocean themed card... well wait the fish have gills lol.
I cut the frame out of the card front itself then backed it with the ink blended and ink splattered background.  for the ink spattering i used my Tim Holtz distress marker spritzer held up to a paint brush of white acrylic paint.  I also did some light ink blending on the outer frame of the card front with the lightest blue.  I stamped the seaweed and coral directly onto the background before adhering.  I added the white frame into the inset.... then added another white frame on top of that.  For the adorable die cut Mermaid I had to re-cut the face portion by hand for it to be solid so I could stamp my own face instead of using the die cut one.  For the tail and accessories I used a very thin iridescent paper in light pink for the pearl necklace, dark pink for the top and flower and for the  tail I cut in a light iridescent blue then colored over with a spectrum noir marker to add the purple colors.  I added a lavender gem that I colored over with the same purple spectrum noir marker to the flower in her hair.
For the inside I cut another frame that I lightly inked with light blue ink.  I placed a light blue card stock that I stamped with more stamps from the same YNS stamp set - Sea Sentiments
I used 3 different shades of purple ink for the sentiments and stamped the anchor in black.

Material list:
Your Next Stamp stamp set - Sea Sentiments - sentiment stamps inside and out
Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame 4 Pc die set - Largest
Ink blending  - Seedless Preserves - Mermaid Lagoon - Tumbled Glass Distress inks

Happy Mother’s Day Layered Label Card

Oh my goodness it has been a long time since I was able to craft. I injured my wrist back in late December early January and I have been unable to do any crafting since then. I am finally doing a little card making and trying to be very careful not to turn my wrist the wrong way.  It sure feels good to be crafting again even if it took me all day to make this very simple card lol.  I made this card especially for my 90+  Ex Mother in-law who lives in a nursing home.  I want her to always know she will always be my Family.
I layered up this fun card with some pretty pattern papers along with a solid lavender card stock and several different dies.  The pretty words and butterflies are dazzles from paper wishes/hot off the press.  I layered some of the matching pattern paper behind the butterflies.  I also added a purple lace  ribbon going kitty-corner across the card from my stash and added some pink flower rhinestones about the card and a couple of pink round rhinestones to go on the butterflies.

My list of supplies:
Main Pattern paper large rectangle layer - Bundle of Stitched Shapes - Simon Says Stamp dies
2 types of pattern paper plus lavender shadow layer - Scalloped Daisy Background Die
Stitched Ticket Label for Sentiment - Wavy Stitched Frames Stack

Mickey hand shaker card

I needed to make a thank you card for my Grandson's Kindergarten teacher so this is what I came up with.
I started out with a black A-2 card base folded at the top.   I used Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes set for the stitched rectangle that I cut in red.   I ran that through my Cuttlebug star embossing folder.  I used a stitched fishtail banner stacks die for the black-and-white polkadot which is from Pebbles - Basics.   I tied a bow around that layer with some red and white bakers twine.  I used a stitched scallop circle die to cut the black for the center.  Using my Cricut expression and an SVG file for the shaker hand I got from my friend Cheryl over at Creative Kuts.  I filled the shaker with some red seed beads.  I backed the shaker and also cut a stitched banner for the sentiment out of some yellow striped pattern paper from my scraps stash. The sentiment I created on my computer and printed and cut out  with the sew stitched fishtail banner die.   I cut some small hearts out of red foil on the Cricut expression to scatter on the front of the card.
On the inside I used my Cricut explore to write the personalized sentiment to his teacher.   I also had it write his name and the school years at the bottom and cut a small Mickey head to place next to his name.  The Mickey head is from Cricut Mickey and friends cartridge.  I cut three more red foil hearts to scatter around inside.  I used Simon says stamp bundle of stitch shapes for the white stitched rectangle.  I left plenty of room for him to personally sign his name also.

One final touch, I had my Cricut Explore Air write out her name on the envelope.
That's it for me today, thanks so much for stopping by to see my projects.

Kinder-Grad Star Wobble Easel Card

 My little man (Grandson) is graduating kindergarten tomorrow so I wanted to make him a fun interactive card to commemorate the day.   I decided to go with an easel card with an interactive action wobble.

The adorable star is from Cricut – Simply Charmed.  The graduation cap is from Cricut – Everyday Paper Dolls.   All of the stitched layers are from different die stacks.  The large stitched rectangle is from Simon Says Stamp dies - Bundle of Stitched Shapes. 
The small stitched stars are from a star die stack, as are the smaller stitched rectangles that are from a different die stack, which I used to pop up on foam tape for the inside sentiment.  The sentiments are written with the Cricut explore air using these fonts:  2019 is BauerBodni BT and everything else is AmeriGarmnd BT

Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I'm up to in my craft room.  Have a wonderful Day.

Rose Beauty Birthday Card

I am in love with this beautiful Layered Rose svg from Creative Kuts!  I really had fun putting this together!
The flower is 3 layers, two different colors of Bazzill card stock, Forget Me Not & Hyacinth card stock and then the top layer is a repeat of the darker, Forget me not color that I colored a shade darker with spectrum noir marker LV1.  The leaves I used just two layers of green Card stock plus a spectrum noir marker VB1 for some shading.
Card Base layer - Bazzill card stock, Forget Me Not color
White layer - stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp dies - Bundle of Stitched Shapes
I then took one of my Curved Scallop Edge Die from Your Next Stamp
I used my Tim Holtz Distress marker spritzing tool with spectrum noir marker LV3 for the purple splats of color on white.
The Happy Birthday Stamp from Tags & Trims stamp set - HOTP stamped in Violet Ink and heat embossed with clear acrylic embossing powder.
