Birthday Surprise



See? I really have been crafting! I made a birthday card to surprise someone with.

This card was made using Stampin' Up!'s Happy Moments stamp set and I set it in the 1 3/4" punched circles. I used Stampin' Write Bold Bright markers to enhance the image and then used the little jewelry tag punch and a word window punch for the sentiments. The sentiments are from an older Stampin' Up! stamp set...I can't remember the name of it right now. I must be getting old!!

I doodled around the edges with a black Stampin' Write marker and enhanced the tag with gold ink and linen thread.

The border was cut from some scrapbooking paper I had on hand.

The cardstock used is Lovely Lilac, So Saffron and Whisper White.

I hope you like it!

A Thinking of You Card



I've been crafting today. I made a couple of ATCs, some cards and a layout! Maybe I can share some with you over the next few days. It was my craftiest day in a long time :)

Tonight I decided to show you a card I made for a friend who is going through some hard times. I love that Organic Grace set from Stampin' Up! The little dragonfly is so pretty and I love to stamp one then cut one out and pop it up as I did here.

I used Mellow Moss, Rose Red, and Whisper White cardstock and inks.

Papercraft Bears!




I was playing with my Stampin' Up! punches (as you do) and somehow a little teddy started to take shape. I decided to go with it and wound up with a boy and a girl version that I turned into cards. They were quick and easy to make.

If you would like to see how I made these and maybe make some yourself, I created a tutorial on PaperCraftCentral. Let me know if you do make some! I'd love to come and see how they turn out.
