Boss Lady "Happy Birthday" Card

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share a card I made for Etsy.   This was a first, and I absolutely love the "boss lady" energy this card gives out!  I went with the heels for this one and will have to try a handbag next time.  I gave the heels the Louboutin look with the red bottoms.

Here is my card...





I stamped the heels stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop's "Stay Classy" set, and colored it with copic markers.  

I used a Lawn Fawn "Stitched Hillside Border" die for the curved edge on the gold and layered a black card stock on top of it.   I die cut the the Paper Smooches "happy birthday" die in gold.

The sentiment was printed out and I placed everything onto a white base.

Thanks for stopping by!

Large Peony - Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share a card I made using the Large Peony Stamp from The Ton Stamps.  The Ton has gorgeous floral sets!  

Here is my card...


I stamped the Large Peony stamp and leaves onto vellum using versamark and then heat embossed it using rose gold embossing powder from The Ton. 

I colored the flower using copic markers and then cut the peony and leaves out.  I adhered them to a piece of shimmer cardstock.  This was then adhered to a black piece of cardstock which was embossed using a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder. 

The piece was then attached to a base card and topped off with a "happy" sentiment diecut from Hero Arts, and a printed "birthday" sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Magical Dragons - "Birthday" Card

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share a card I made using the adorable Magical Dragons Stamp Set from My Favorite Things, and my new Distress Oxide Inks...yep I got them...got them all!  I made this card for the current My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch challenge - sketch 340.  



Here is my card...

I created the background using distress oxide inks which I sprayed with water.  T water was fused with some silver perfect pearls, so it's sparkling!  I colored the dragons with my kuretake zig markers, and went over the green with a green spica glitter pen.

I die cut clouds using "stitched cloud" dies from MFT,  adhered them to silver paper, and then cut out the clouds/paper layers using a circle die.  I trimmed off the bottom of the circle to finish it off.

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from MFT's "Up in the Air" stamp set.

Peony Bouquet - "Congrats" Card

Hi Everyone!

Spring/Summer means a lot of engagements, bridal showers, and weddings!  I've been making some "congrats" cards just for that.   Here is a recent one...


I created the flowers using the layering Peony Bouquet stamp set from Altenew...gorgeous set!  There were 4 layers to the peony, but I used 3 layers for mine.  I used the "congrats" stamp from Honey Bee Stamps, and topped it off with some gems.  I layered it on top of some pink glitter paper, and then adhered it to the card.  I realized afterwards,  that I didn't stamp leaves lol....next time!

20 Years of Harry Potter

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share a card I made that was inspired by 20 years of Harry Potter!  I can't believe it's been that long since Harry and his friends were introduced to us.  

The Sweet Stamp Shop has the cutest stamp sets and I fell in love with this one when it first came out. 

Here is my card...



I created the purple and black background on the right flap, by stamping/embossing a star stamp and then using the smooshing technique using distress inks.   I also used yellow patterned paper on the left flap. The cute stamped images and sentiment is from the Sweet Stamp Shop, and were colored in using my zig color brush markers.

Happy National Pink Day!

Hi Everyone!

Happy National Pink Day!  As most of you know, it's my favorite color.  Love it and all of the different shades it comes in.  Had to share this card with you today, as it's fitting.




I used a digi stamp from Stamp-N-Doodle (Lynne Crosskill's) 'Summer Pippa'Stamp. I printed this one out atl east 4 years ago, and found it while I was organizing.

I used copics to color her in, and used some colored cardstock and patterned paper for the layering.  

"PINK is my signature color."

Thanks for stopping by!
