Happy Birthday Scout

I asked for the Campin Critters cartridge for Christmas because I LOVE the 3D tents.   My family isn't big into the outdoors or camping so, I don't have many instances to use this one but, my son was invited to a BD party for a friend of his who is a cub scout so, I figured this would be a good time to use it.  
I cut the trees from forest1 at 5".   I only cut the trees and stumps to layer and then inked the trees.  The eagle was cut at 3 1/2" with the layers and added some google eyes.   The mat paper is from the K & Co Boy Scouts stack.

Peacock Wish

Before I start on today's card I just want to say that I LOVE it.   My little sister loves peacock's and I have had a plan to use the colorful mat paper from DCWV Hippie Chic stack ever since I laid eyes on it.   So, that's where I started.  
I pulled out all the matching glitter papers to cut my peacock from the Art Nouveau cartridge at 4 3/4".  I added a gem to his eye once I was done assembling.   I mounted the peacock onto another frame of solid paper that I border punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.   I added a frame with the letters WISH on it, using matching ribbon.   The ribbon and chip board letters were from Studio G.  Oh, and under the peacock frame, I added some unrolled raffia ribbon in an off white color.

Floral Birthday

Today's card, I made for my sister,   I started with the paper from Basic Grey's new PB&J line, which I LOVE!!   The 'frame' cut is Mod2 - Lace2 cut with the shadow from the Paper Lace cartridge at 4"  I cut the base in a light blue and the top in navy blue.   After I glued them together, I embossed them using the Lifestyle Crafts 'Whimsy' embossing folder.
I added the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, also from Paper Lace.   It's the Hapybdy2-Lace 1 cut with the shadow at 2 1/4" and then embossed with Cuttlebug swiss dots folder.

This relax card was made using the Splish Splash cartridge and Theresa Collins paper.   I cut the 'relax' at 2" and then then cut the flags by hand, along with my paper cutter, of course.  The inside sentiment is from TCP Studio.

Flower Thank you

This card is one that I made with some extra cuts from a previous card.   When I cut 3 of the 1x6 borders from the bracket cut on Ribbons & Rosette's, I had the two bracket strips left over from in between so I saved them as well as a single side cut that I inked in green at the bottom of the card.
The mat paper is from Teresa Collins Everyday Moments stack.   The flower cut is from the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge, Flower 6 cut at 3 1/2", 3", and 2 1/2" using DCWV Blossom Song paper.
I added a punched center to the flower and a blue gem as well as hand cut leaves that I inked the edges of, from the same DCWV stack.   The stamp is from Studio G and the ribbon was just a misc piece I had.  

On the inside, I used some more scraps and a stamp from Fiskars!
