This is the funniest birthday card ever.
EVER! Rofl! I have the greatest friends!
If you are a chihuahua mama you are going to love this post!
My dear friend is a proud mother of a little chihuahua and so I made her a few cute little things including this fancy birthday card. For the card, I used the leftovers from my vinyl transfer cut out and used gold ink for the chihuahua. (What can I say – leftovers are awesome!) For some finishing touches, I added a sprinkle of enamel dots and a little glitter heart for the collar. Next up, a must have chihuahua mama accessory:
This canvas tote bag is wonderful! It is very sturdy with pockets everywhere. It also has a zipper to close the top which is great for traveling. I found the little chihuahua from the Silhouette store. I used flocked heat transfer vinyl which matches the velvet black trim of the bag. For a personal touch, I monogrammed the back of the tote bag using a spring font from the Silhouette store.
Isn’t the font so sweet? I just love the fun-happy feeling I get when I see it! A few months back, I purchased a canvas block art of a Scottie which I absolutely loved. I found on Etsy this adorable chihuahua wood block art that can be placed on a book shelf or wall mounted.
Tell me that the glasses and bow tie doesn’t kill you with cutenesssssssssss! Finally, I made a little canvas bag to put the artwork inside (which can be later used as a lingerie laundry bag!)
Needless to say, I can’t wait to make all of these things in the Scottie version for me! hehe!
Must have been the Saving Mr. Banks movie that I watched which gave me a Mary Poppins inspiration for this card…
As you can see, I am still crazy about the embossing paste and glitter combo. It looks so beautiful in real life!
For some finishing touches I sprayed the clouds with a glitter mist and gave the chickies nose a little glossy accents.
I love this stamp set Thanks for stopping by!
Originally I wanted to make a hippo flying off with balloons…but I will save it for another card!
I decided on this simple but fun design:
I love the little party hat on the hippo’s tushie!
I embossed the circles in silver and stamped in a few colors here and there. I love this Winnie & Walter stamp set. So adorable!
Okay, a long long long time ago (when I first started stamping) I bought a glitter stamp pad from Martha Stewart and never really fell in love with it.
Flash forward years later – Glitter is my new love! I just looooooooooooooooooooove how this looks! Granted, I am covered in glitter from head to toe and so is my poor little Scottie by the end of the night! lol.
So in order to achieve this look – I used double sided adhesive sheets and just rubbed the glitter in stages so that I could reuse it later. It’s not too hard once you practice a few times. Below is the very first glitter card I made.
I tried using the distress glitter on this dress (do you recognize the peacock color?) and it didn’t turn out too bad. I think I will stick with the Martha Stewart glitters because I love the brightness and shine it gives off. Absolutely stunning! Love Love Love.
I’m making some funny sentiment cards after being inspired by a hilarious line of stamps!
I am loving how these project life cards are perfect for little sentiments!
Always a good idea to have happy thoughts on your birthday!
This card really made me love the wink of stella clear glitter pen even more!!! I used it for the finishing touches on the wooden hearts – so cute right? A few months ago, I went on a craze a bought a ton of these little license plates. I love how they add just a little something extra.
I can’t get enough of these new puffy stickers that have great shapes like arrows, hearts, etc. I think it adds a lot of layers and textures to cards. I also used patterned paper from a halloween paper pad!
