Shaking Chevron!

Here is one of my last cards using the chevron stencil and embossing paste!

I love this color combination and decided to make a little shaker card with this adorable baby giraffe!

Here is a closer look at the embossing paste after I added glitter.  Isn’t it just so beautiful? I love it!

Fun fact about giraffes: The age of a giraffe can be calculated from its spots. The darker the spots, the older the giraffe!

You Are Boo-Tastic!

This year I decided to start early on my Halloween Cards.

For seasonal cards, I find it easiest when  I pull out all my supplies that way everything is at my fingertips.

Last year I bought most of these supplies and did not get a chance to use it! So glad I saved all my goodies.

Here is my original card but I decided it needed more dimension and depth so I popped everything up and added some clear cardstock for the circle window.

Hopefully, I will have a ton of Halloween cards to share in the next few weeks! Have a wonderful labor day!

Oh Happy Day!

“Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof!” – Happy Happy Happy birthday!

I used adorable patterned paper from Lawn Fawn for this card.  I love the heart garland!

For the balloons, I applied a few different inks using my sponge daubers.  I have to admit now that I have my picture frame storage I am using a lot more of my embellishments (i.e. the white flower bling) for cards and projects. Such a great idea!

Thanks for visiting!

Blue Birds Smiling at Me…

I love this little bird.

I made another series of birthday cards which I like to call “How Many Fingers Are You” for all the Spring babies!  For this card, I used embossing paste and glitter to create the raised hearts and added some light blue bling and white enamel dots.

Happy May!

Chickies in Glitter!

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.

Airmail with Love!

I just love all these airmail papers! They are so adorable…

This set is from Martha Stewart’s Love Notes patterned paper.  They have such a great vintage look and there are so many cute patterns to choose from!182846-600x600-1

I added a few finishing touches by using the airmail stamp to make a cute border and I made my own epoxy stickers from other Martha Stewart valentine’s day patterned paper. Of course, there had to be a Love from Above angel on there =)

Happy Superbowl Sunday!

A little love…

I cannot get enough of this Mama Elephant Love from Above Stamp Set… vday2

It’s so adorable!!! I think I will have to hide it somewhere in my stash of stamps so I will stop using it! So for this card, I tried to give it a lot of dimension and color.  I added light pink distress ink at the top and bottom.   It’s hard to tell from the photograph but the white in the middle really highlights the heart box.

For finishing touches, I added white dots and little stitched lines on the heart box. Also, I added distress glitter to the little angel wings. Love love love these cards for Valentine’s day.
