Birthday Cake Cards

I made so many cards at once and haven't had time to post them that I cant even remember which cartridge I used to cut this cake. I used gold paper for the cake and added stickles on the cake.

70th birthday card

I cut the happy birthday from Simply Charmed (I think). I used a hole punch to take out the smiley faces.  I made this card very simple since it was a 70 year old male.

Sew Many Challenge #57 Punch

 I used the scallop square punch for the top and glued them down in different directions. The bottom I used the scallop punch and added twine. I colored this super cute Sew Many digi with copic markers, inked the edge and added gems with my Irock. I love how cute this card came out.
Here are the punched I used. Now it is your turn go over to Sew Many Challenge blog and join in on the fun.

Card Swap birthday cards

These are the male birthday cards I made for my monthly card swap. I cut the center pieces from Lacy Labels.
This is my female birthday card for my card swap. I love these papers. I think I cut this cupcake from Sweet Treats at 3 in.

Princess Bday Card & bookmark

I made this birthday card for a seven year old girl. I cut the princess from Birthday Cakes and spray glittered the crown.
I cut the wrong size for the bookmark so I used it on the envelope.
Made a bookmark to go with her card.
Thanks for stopping by.

Male Birthday Cards

I cut the label from Lacy Labels and faux stitched the labels. I added brads. This is a Fiskar stamp that came in a set of sentiments. It is one of my favorite sets.
Thanks for looking!

Off to Ireland

Well I am on my way to Ireland for almost three weeks for vacation with my hubby. We are super excited and oh the pictures I am going to take. I am an amateur photographer for those of you who don't know. I have lots of nature pictures on my flickr page which is listed on the left side of my blog and will be adding tons of Ireland pics there when I get back. However I have so many scheduled posts that you will never know I am gone. Three weeks of no crafting though, I am having withdrawals already. I'll be back at the end of the month.

Sew Many Challenge 56-Fathers Day

Sew Many is having a Father's Day Challenge. Go by and check it out.

Isn't this image cute. It is from Sew Many. Kathi Dressed in Daddy's Clothes 
I colored her with Copics and embossed the background then filed the top. I added metal accents with my Irock. Some of them are hard to see.

This tag is done with alcohol ink. I used the Ranger Rick dabber, added drops of ink and just dabbed the tag repeatedly.

Father's Day Freebie~Sew Many

Here is a sneak peek of Friday's freebie on Sew Many. Get it Friday only so head over there!
I colored this with my Copics and photoshop colored parts of it. I added some metal accents and faux stitched the top card. I printed the sentiment and inked the edges.

This label was sprayed with this new glitter spray. I normally use the one on the right but it gets everywhere so I wanted to try this new kind that doesn't rub off as much. I am not sure how I feel about it yet. I will let you know after I use it more and give more details then.

Grad Cap Cards

These first cards I used metallic background paper that I embossed using my big kick with stars. I cut the grad cap from A Child's Year. I made the tassel from twine from the Twinery. I faux stitched the edges of the white paper and stamped the bottom.

This card I used the shaving cream technique I described in this post. I love how it came out.
So as you can see I made all these cards very similar and I sold them all. I love when that happens.

Stampendous Bee Birthday Card

I cut the scallop with my Nestibilites and stamped around it with the small stamp in this bee set and added metal accents with my Irock. I stamped the cute bee and colored with Copics. I added glossy accents to the balloon. Thanks for looking.

I am entering this card on
Papertake- Anything Goes

Father's Day Cards

The labels are made from Lacy Labels cut at 2 1/2 and 2 3/4. I faux stitched around the edges of most the labels. I added a variety of brads. Male cards are not my favorite, way too boring for me.

The last card I used alcohol inks and used the dabber to ink the edges. I put drops on the dabber and just tapped around the edges then stamped the Happy Fathers Day. I punched several small holes around the card so some of the white would show through.

Snow White card

I made this card from Wild card cut at 5 in. The Snow White head was from Disney Princess which is officially my least favorite cartridge. What a pain it is to make these cut outs. This was my second try at a snow white cut out. It was ok except the eyes, so I added Glossy Accents to the whites of the eyes.
Thanks for stopping by.
