Love card



I saw this technique on the Club Scrap blog and decided to give it a try. I used the reinkers I had on hand with some basic string. I used the clean up rag on the edges for an accent and finished the card with a Hero Arts stamp.

Happy Birthday card





Here's a card I made using papers and embellishments from Cosmo Cricket. The stamp is from Hero Arts. I just bought the Tim Holtz stamping platform and tried to use it on this card. Unfortunately since I already had the double stack embellishment on the card it didn't stamp well. I took the stamp off that tool and then used an acrylic block but I didn't match it up well enough so that's why I added the yellow paper underneath. Note to self -- stamp then embellish.

Three butterflies




Here's a card I made using my Spellbinders and some ordinary embellishments. My inspiration was this post by Jennifer McGuire. Instead of a diecut I used a Spellbinders Impressabilities design. I added three ordinary butterfly embellishments that had adhesive on the back. I aligned them on one side of the card and then put some baby powder on the half that I didn't want to stick. I heard of this trick a long time ago but never needed to use it.

Living forever card




This card uses the same background paper as last weeks card. For this one I used some old Marvy Metallic markers that I thinned out with water and applied with a brush. I then added a stamped image from Inky Antics that I colored with pencils and the sentiment.

Memories card




Here's a card I made using a simple sentiment stamp and papers and embellishments from American Traditional Designs. I inked the edges of the papers but otherwise easy peasy.

They say it's your birthday...card




Here's a card I made using my Silhouette. I downloaded a .jpg and then transformed it to a cutting file. I got this file for free from Vector Open Stock and is a Creative Commons file. I used a background stamp of some sheet music (not the Beatles) and then added the cutting file and the musical embellishment.

Love is all you need card




Continuing my Beatles theme from last week I made another card using embossing folders and my silhouette machine. This time I bought a cutting file and sized it for this card that I'm sending for an anniversary.

Happy Birthday Card



I have two cards with the same paper. The other one is posted next week. For this one I used direct to paper with dye and chalk inks. I then added some embellishments and the sentiment I had hanging around the house to finish it off. I thought I had enough of the daisy ribbon but..oops I didn't so since it was stuck on what was I to do? Well I found something else and it doesn't exactly go but hopefully it isn't too bad. Note to self: Make sure you have enough to go around before you apply the glue.

All you need card



Here's a card I made using materials from a card kit by TJ Designs called Rodeo Sweethearts. My addition to this was the picture of W. F. Cody, a.k.a. Buffalo Bill. I realize the quote is from Daniel Boone but I didn't have a picture already printed.
