Air Mail from Cruz and Maxx

I made a custom card and thought it would be so cute to put names on the little kids!

Hello in Gold!

Here is my attempt of combining different textures and layers! For the background, I used embossing paste to create the rainbow polkadot background.

Hello1

I just love sprinkling glitter on the embossing paste before it dries completely.  It adds a little sparkle that makes you smile when you see it!

Hello2

Love the gold thread behind the cute little bunny!

I can’t believe it is already October! Time to get ready for Christmas cards!

We are in Disguise for your Birthday!

I have been trying to make cards with the gold thread in the background.  I have to admit it is hard just to let the thread go which ever way it wants to!  But I am really loving the messy look:

For this card, I wanted to make it sort of masculine so I thought it would be funny to add a little mustache to the little mama elephant critters!  I recommend using glue dots to keep the thread in place.

I kept the background colors simple and I think this card looks much better in real life!  Hope you are having a great week!

Air Mail From the Heart!

I did not realize but I hoard and love all things related to Airmail!

I absolutely love the cellophane airmail envelope! It has the perfect combination of sheerness where you can see the little note inside! I would love to receive that envelope in the mail! For this card, I used some patterned airmail paper from Martha Stewart and layered these adorable postcards for the background.  I stamped the airmail banner and border using Lawn Fawn Stamps.

The adorable little girl and sentiment are from Mama Elephant. If you cannot tell from all my latest posts – I am such a huge fan of Mama Elephant stamps! They are adorable!

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!

Gold, Glitter, and Green!

I have to say all the wonderful things about this beautiful gold ink is true…

I picked up these goodies while I was out of town this week.  I was so excited that as soon as I got off the plane I ran straight home and started to craft! I thought using this ink would be perfect for the mama elephant challenge!

I felt very inspired by the blue/aqua colors from this photo. And with Easter around the corner, I needed to make a few Happy Easter cards!

I love this background stamp from impress rubber stamps.  The details are so beautiful and the gold is so rich and glittery.

In order to give the Vellum that beautiful aqua color I took my hero arts tide pool shadow ink and rubbed it into the Vellum.  I love how it turned out!

For this second card, I just added an extra layer behind to bring out more of the lovely blue/aqua colors.

For the bunny tails, I used a puffy marker to give it some dimension!

For this last card, I used a kraft card stock for a different look!

Thanks for visiting!  If you haven’t tried the gold ink – I would definitely recommend it! Happy Easter =)
