Birthday Celebration...

Hi there.... I'd like to share this shaker birthday card that I created using the picture inspiration for a linky party which is currently being help at Craftin' Desert Diva's.

This card measures 5 x 7. I used Recollections card stock and patterned paper for my cards base.
Of course, I had to make it a shaker card and love to use non other than Craftin' Desert Diva's beautiful sequins.

I used a mix of the Cotton Candy Sequins which you can find here: 
as well as Springtime Flower Power Sequins which you can find here: 

I also added a light pink satin ribbon and three robin blue flower brads to the bottom of the card for a little extra embellishing.

Inside the card (which you can see through the acetate), I used the birthday stamp from the Celebration Wordart stamp set which can be found here as well:

It was lots of fun to create this super cute card!
Thank you for stopping by!!


You're Turtley Awesome..

Hi there! Today on the blog, I have this adorable fall themed turtle card.  This card measures 5 x 7. I used Bazzill and Recollections card stock for my paper piecing and as the base of my card.  The patterned paper is from Lilybee Designs.

My cute little turtle friend is a file pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs which you can find here: http://www.littlescrapsofheavendesigns.com/category_22/Weekly-Freebie.htm. Please understand that he is currently listed as the weekly freebie right now.  I do not know how much longer he will be available as a freebie though.

I used my Cricut Explore to upload the file and cut him out. I then chalked each piece before putting him together.  I wanted to make him different somehow and I thought it would be a cute idea to make a "shaker" out of his pumpkin shell.  I used an oval punch to create the cut out and then adhered acetate and foam dots.  I used a mixture of sequins that I had from Craftin' Desert Diva's and Stampin' Up!  After my shaker was formed, I then added two small leaf embellishments (also ReCollections) and a small orange button for an added touch.

Now onto my sentiment..... I used the Natural Tag & Twine Kit from Recollections to created my sentiment tag. And thankfully, I have the Totally Turtle Stamp Set from Craftin' Desert Diva's which you can find here: http://craftindesertdivas.com/totally-turtle/

It was lots of fun making this card. Hope you all enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by!!

Best Buds

Hello and Happy Monday!! Today I'd like to share this cute Best Buds card that I created using a svg file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I have to say, I think I am obsessed with the Super Hero Kids files. They are just too cute and there are so many different ways to use them.

This card measures 5" x 7". For the card base, I used paper from the Recollections Comic Heros Paper Pad. Batman & Robin as well as the sentiment is made from Bazzill and Recollections cardstock.  

Batman & Robin have been cut and chalked and highlights have been added with a white gel pen. I also added some glossy accent to Robin's mask and the Bat on Batman's emblem to give it just a bit of added texture and sheen (Sorry the pic doesn't show it that well). I added star sequins to the sentiment as well to give it that added shimmer and shine.

It is a very fun file to work with and the possibilities are endless.  I hope you enjoyed today's creation. Have a great day and I will see you all again real soon.
