Happy birthday (pretty) card!

Hi everyone! here is another one of my card creations! this is probably one of my favorite ones i have ever made! i love the look of green purple and black together!the card is a standard 5.5 by 4.25 card. i used a corner punch on the purple back piece. the grren paper was punched using threading water punch and then i ran it through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. i took a sponge and some dark green ink to ink up the bottom of the paper. i used a scallop square cut from the mini monograms cricut cartridge. the present was stamped on white cardstock with stazon ink. i then used the watercolor wonder crayons from stampinup and my watercolor pen to color the stamp. (note... you should use stazon ink when watercoloring, otherwise the image will bleed.) i popped up the image with popups. the happy birthday is stamped on green cardstock,( i again inked the edge with green ink and a sponge). the box is cut using fabulous finds cartridge and my designer software to get the image the size i wanted it, and then shadowed with black card stock. i used mini purple brads to add some interest! hope you like it!

This is a birthday card i made and got the inspiration from another blog. the card is 5.5 by 8.5 and then scored at 4.25. i ran the brown paper through the cuttlebug using the swirls embossing folder and then went over the raised image with a white ink pad. the swirl stamp on the bottom of the card is stamped using a border stamp set by hero arts. i used a white ink pad and then used a brown marker to make the dots and the brown stitching on the top of the card. the present is cut using the joys of the season cricut cartridge. the happy birthday is stamped with green ink using a birthday stamp by hero arts.i then used a blue ribbon which cordinates with the paper of the present. i hope you like it!

HapBee Birthday!!!

I got this idea from a fello scrapper and i imediately fell in love with this card! I cut the bee hive with my cricut from walk in my garden cricut cartridge!I drew the bees and the birthday saying on with a marker. The yello card measures at 5 1/2" by 4". i used my fiskars punch to punch the bottom of the black paper and it measures by 5" by 3 3/4 ". i stamped the bottom of the white cardstock with different flower stamps ans drew brown dots around the stamps. Then I made a bow with yellow ribbon from Michaels craft store.I used pop dots to "pop" up the image of the bee hive! If you have any questions or comments let me know!

Color inspiration # 52

I am so excited... this is my first color inspiration challenge!

So cute birthday card!

I got this idea from a fellow scrapper and i absolutely fell in love with it! The butterfly was stamped from stampin up stamp set "merci" wich i think is now retired :( the scallops i cut using surecutsalot program (love it!) and i dabbed the pink on the butterfly with an ink dabber in stampin ups pixie pink ink color.

Happy Fathers Day!

Ok so i wanted to make a cute fathers day card and I have so many memories making sand castles with my dad when I was a child so i wanted to incorporate that into a card. I used the cricut cartridge doodle charms and my cricut design studio to weld the two castles together to make them into a card. i continued to cut the castle two more times and cut out the different castle pieces to make a raised image effect... its really cute and im quite pleased at how it turned out.

A bridal shower card

So i just hosted my sisters bridal shower (as the maid of honour that is one of my many duties) and i had sooo much fun... here is the card I made for her. I used the stampinup stamp set a happy heart for the heart. i used my cuttle bug to get the raised purple swirls on the white paper... and then went over the paper with a purple ink pad. I had a lot of fun with this one. I hope you like it!
