Thinking of You Card ~ Hello {2nd Post}

First I die cut scattered circles in my panel and attached it to my card base.
Next I die cut the circles from design paper and placed them in the holes.
I think they kind of look a little like colorful paper pieced bubbles.
To finish off my card I added the die cut sentiment.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Sentiment cut using the Simply Said Hello die from Avery Elle.
*Circles cut using the Nesting Circles die set from We R Memory Keepers.
*Design paper from the Happy Day 6x6 pad from My Mind's Eye.

May your day always be filled with love.

Birthday Card ~ A Balloon Assortment {1st Post}

I can always use birthday cards and most of my cards need to be 
postal ready so I tend to keep my layers and embellishments limited.
To do that with this card I used an assortment of design paper 
and embossed card stock for my balloon die cuts.
The balloons are anchored using my handwritten sentiment.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Balloons cut using the Balloons Dies from Paper Smooches.
*Hand written sentiment from me. lol.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Polka dots folder from Provo Craft.
*Embossed using the Swirl Background folder from Darice.
*Design paper from the Happy Day 6x6 pad from My Mind's Eye.
*Twine from my stash.

May your day always be filled with love.

Thinking Of You Card ~ Just For You {2nd Post}

Guess what everyone? IT'S FRIDAY!!!
I  used my new distress markers to color on
the stamp then stamped it on the white rectangle.
I haven't used this technique in a
long time and love how the colors turned out.
I have been in a shaker card mood lately.
Hope you're not tired of them.



I'm trying to set up an inside photo area but need to work on the lighting a bit. 
We get a lot of rain so taking outdoor photos can be a challenge.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Itty Bitty Vase With Stripes stamp from Unity Stamp Co.
*Large rectangle cut using the Blueprint 20 die set from My Favorite Things.
*Med & sm rectangles cut using the Nesting Rectangles die set from QuicKutz.
*Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn & Worn Lipstick Tim Holtz Distress Markers from Ranger.
May your day always be filled with love.

Love/Valentine Card ~ Love Is In the Air {1st Post}

Love is in the air. In this case literally. lol.
I die cut the word love from my card front then
 backed it with white to give it a cloud-like feel.
Next I stamped the heart flowers on the background.
I stamped, colored then die cut the penguins and
gave each of them a golden die cut balloon.
Then I stamped the bee trail from the Bee Mine
stamp set to create my balloon strings.
To finish off my Love Is In the Air theme I added
a little bee couple I scattered some little red hearts.

Love/Valentine Card ~ Bee Mine

I would like to thank the very sweet people at 
Marker Pop for the stamp set I used for my card today.
I was the lucky winner of one of their challenges.
This sweet Bee Mine set was one of my prizes.

I stared out stamping the background using the heart shape insect trail.
Next I stamped, colored and fussy cut the bees placing 
them inside the window grid I created overlapping the two grids.
I filled a few windows with the sentiment and added a few stamped hearts.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Bee, heart, trail & sentiment from the Bee Mine stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
