Basket of flowers

This is a quick card I needed to make and get in the mail today.  The background is an embossing folder that was embossed on a printed paper.  The basket and flowers are dies.  Great for an Easter week birthday!  Have a great day!

Graphic 45 Explosion Box


Today I am posting 2 projects I have made with Graphic 45 papers.  This is an explosion box I made for my Mom's bday.  The Graphic 45 papers are just beautiful!  I made a total of 8 pockets on the inside of the box for inserting various cards into of stamped images, cutouts, or even a few of the cards in the package of papers.  I added some rock candy glitter to the cut outs to glitz it up a bit.  Such a fun project with some of my favorite papers!  Happy Crafting!

By the Sea

Today I have a card I made at the last minute for my father-in-law for his bday in 6 days!  He is a lover of fishing and lighthouses and the NC coastline so this was perfect for him.  Graphic 45 has these gorgeous new papers out and so much fun to do things with.  This was a fun card to make...unlike most male cards I have done in the past!  Thanks for dropping by.

Happy Birthday Pastor Peel!!!

It took me half the day to come up with this card for our Pastor on his 75th birthday...but it happened!  Male cards are so hard to do.  I came up with about 3 other ideas before this one and they all flopped...you know how it goes!  Then this one hit me.  My hubby is a pilot so this works well for us.  The church is an embossing folder that I just blinged up a bit with snow on the water colored trees and some glitter on the church.  I found an image of a Colorado SWA plane and cut it out to add to the card.  I think Pastor will like it.

Double birthday

This is a birthday card I made for my daughter-in-law who is a twin.  It's a Magnolia stamp that I have been hunting for for quite some time. I colored it with Copics and used Spellbinders dies to frame it.  Have a fun day!

Dancing Butterfly

This is a fun project made using one stamp!  The image is stamped and embossed several times.  I glittered some of the design and painted some of it too.  The butterfly image has been cut down each time to show more of the butterfly as it is layered on the base.  It is a bit time consuming to do, but the results are amazing! The stamp is by Holly Berry House.  Hope you have a fun day!

Where flowers bloom...

Another card today!  Simple Pleasures in Colorado Springs celebrated their 19th anniversary this weekend and this is one of two exclusive sets by Memory Box honoring their 19 years.  This is a stamp set and a die set and has so many options. (you can order this set from Simple Pleasures too!)  I used watercolor pencils to color it.  I cut out each individual little flower and attached it to a base stamped and colored image... with dimensionals.  There are a few petals that have dropped off the flower too!  I have also glittered the image which is tough to see in the picture but adds so much to the finished look.  I added rhinestones to the center of each flower too.  The sentiment is by Verve Stamps and this card will be for a breast cancer patient...so perfect.  Have a great day!
