Sweet Happy Birthday Card

Hi everyone! I finally got new blades for my Cricut Imagine! YAY! I was beginning to miss my Imagine. So I used for this card and cut out the lollipops and lady holding the cake from the Yummy Cart. I also went by the Campus Store and found some Valentine Day cards on clearance for 1 dollar. So I got them because the images didn't look like they had to be for Valentines Day. The table with all the critter and candy is from one of those cards, I just fussy cut it out. TFL!

Great Job Card- Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

Hello everyone! Today I made a card for the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. This card was inspired by the colors(Green, White, Pink and Yellow) on the picture on the Sparks Challenge Blog. This one:
I loved the colors of this and took the opportunity to use my new stamp set Paper Smooches Smarty Pants. I used a bunch of stamps from this set to make this card. For the bottom border I stamped out the ruler many times to try to make it look like a brick wall. I then stamped the books four times and stacked them on top of each other. I stamped out the stars many times on the chalkboard as well. The worm, quirky teacher, Pencil and crayon is also from the Smarty Pants set. The great job and lightbulb was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The lightbulb is actually from the Paper Smooches Set Perpetual Bliss. I just wiped off the love in the middle with a baby wipe before stamping it. I added a bit of glossy accents to the glasses and stickles and Voila!

80's Totally Awesome Birthday Card

Hey everyone! Today I received some new stamps. And one of them was this fabulous 80s Anya from The Greeting Farm that I have been looking for forever! It's a retired stamp and I had only seen it a few times for outrageous prices. So when I saw it on the Farmer's Market sale for 5 dollars I was so excited!:D
My sister's birthday is April 23rd and I knew I had to make her a birthday card with this stamp and some of my 80s inspired embellishments. My sister grew up in the 80s so I knew I had to make her an 80s themed card and 80s Anya was just the perfect fit with her big hair! I also entered this in the Monday Fun Day Challenge since it's an Anything Goes challenge. I am super tired now so I will end here. Thanks for looking!

Bliss Altered Frame

Hey everyone! Today I woke up early to make a card, I colored up this gorgeous girl from the Some Odd Girl Stamp set Bliss and when I finished coloring I thought of a frame I bought really cheap at Target after Valentines Day that I have been dying to alter. SO what better way to alter it than with this awesome stamp set. This is my first altered frame and I had a lot of fun making it although I did create quite the mess on my desk.;)LOL, The colors were inspired by the paper which is from the Basic Grey Konnichiwa paper pad. TFL!!

Some Bunny Loves you

Hi everyone! TGIF! Today I got my first prismacolor pencils in the mail. I am so excited to finally have some prismas. I have been using crayola pencils and it's just so difficult to get the colors to blend. I got the 72 pack and am just loving them. They are so easy to work with and the color just feels so soft. I colored up this Gorjuss girl called I love you little rabbit and put her on a scalloped egg from the Cricut Easter 2010 Cart. Unfortunately, I won't be able to use my cricut for more intricate cuts for a few days because my blades aren't cutting all the way through so if it's simple I can cut it out with my scissors. TFL!

Spring Scene Card- OhScrap Spring Challenge

So I am on a challenge rampage! I am really loving all the challenges I'm finding in some great websites! Today I made this card for a challenge going on at the OhScrap Blog. OhScrap is a fabulous store online. They sell wonderful stamps and embellishments and everything ships for free! Which is awesome:) So they have a blog and they're having a challenge in which you have to make a card with a spring theme. Pretty Easy right? So I made this scene card entirely with stamps.

Princess Garden Card

I have recently put a small box next to my desk with things I want to use soon. Today I grabbed my Sweet November Isadora stamp and colored her up. I also jsut received the Cricut Imagine Lori's Garden Cart that I got on the Cricut Rewards site. I thought the branch with the birdcages and birds paired up perfectly with my Isadora stamp. So I took out my Basic Grey Plumeria paper pad and whipped up this card! It was so much fun to make:)

Hippity Hoppity Card

Today I wasn't feeling too good but still felt like crafting so I threw together this card I had designed on my gypsy yesterday. The card base is 4 1/2 x 6 1/2. The bottom border and Hippity Hoppity Sticker are from a 3 Birds Sticker Set. I just adhered the hippity sticker to white cardstock just so it would stand out more. The background paper is from the Cricut Imagine Cartridge Snapshot:Nature. The bunny, toadstools and small butterfly are from the Cricut Cart Nursery Tails. Then I just colored up my Sweet November Butterfly Bunny stamp which is the sweet little boy dressed like a bunny. And added some Sticko Butterfly puffy stickers and Stickles And that's that! Quick and Simple! TFL!

Whac a Mole Birthday Card

Hi everyone! I got started bright and early today:) I have had this card idea in my head since I bought the Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies Set with this adorable mole! I just used my cricut and gypsy to cut out a square with 4 ovals in it so it'll look like the moles are popping out of the ground. I also used some of my twine to make it more festive and just put all the moles in the holes and made them look like they're coming out at different levels. I hand drew the mallot since I couldn't find any stamp or diecut that would work. I hope the recipient likes it and so do you:)

Happy Birthday 2 you

I made this for a challenge to use 4 stamps or more. I love this C.C Designs Stamp called Party Time Lucy I think she is just adorable with her little pigtails:) So I made this card with her and added some presents and balloons from the Cornish Heritage Farm stamp Birthday Bash by Kim Hughes. I also finally used my Slice machine and cut out the banner and the "you". It's great little machine for when you just want to whip something up.
This card measures 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 because I used the background paper from the matstack by DCWV called All about Girls and I liked the scalloped border and didn't want to cut it up. So here's my card, TFL!
