Gram loves Scrabble!

When I saw this scrabble paper in the Crate Paper Party Day 6x6 stack, I knew exactly who I was going to use it for…My Grandma!   She loves scrabble.   I added the red diamond paper from Crate Paper DIY Shop.   The individual letter tiles, I cut with my cutter and then used Making Memories rub on letters on each one.  I added a feminine touch by using some flowers from Michael's and then some Recollections brads in the centers of the flowers.  The trim I used is from Websters Pages “All About Me’ collection.

Preggo Congrats

This card was made for a friend who is expecting.   I used Teresa Collins (LOVE HER) paper from the 6x6 Memories stack and the Tell Your Story stack.   I cut the main frame from Elegant Edges.   It’s the Burst cut, Oblong, with Shift at 3 ½”.  The pregnant girl cut is from Everyday Pop Up Cards at 3 ¼” and flipped.  The ribbon is from American Crafts and then I used a printed sentiment and a corner rounder

Thinking of Dragonflies

Hello everyone!   I hope you're all having a great day!  I have been feeling a little more in the spring mood lately and thought I would make something along the lines.   The dragonflies are from the Pagoda cartridge cut at 3" with the top wing layers.   The paper is a light purple with glitter dots that came from the DCWV Ultimate stack (a winter paper) and the layer I cut in dark purple and then added dark purple stickles on the wings and the bodies of the dragonflies.   I glued the bodies and part of the wings to the sheet but, used pop dots on the tips of the wings to make them stick up and appear like they are flying.
The mat paper is from Martha Stewart.   Can't recall where the flocked rick rack ribbon is from but, the stamp is from a G Studio mini for this spring.  I used the same paper on the inside with a strip of gray cardstock and a Martha Stewart border punch across the bottom. 
Hope this one makes you feel in a springy mood too!  Can't wait to see all the great cards you guys will create this spring!  Happy Easter! Enjoy!

Birthday Tunes 2

Today's headphone card is from Wild Card 2.   Headphones seem to be a good go to item for teen cards right now.  The printed paper is from DCWV Generation Tech stack.   I cut the two different rectangle's and framed them in the green (although it is hard to tell).  The green sheet across the top was embossed using the Cuttlebug Allegro folder.   I cut the headphones at 2 1/2" and then framed them on the green square and added some black cord.   The red scribble lines are a cut up transparency from Basic Grey Serendipity line, as well as the sentiment that is also framed.   The inside stamp is from Studio G.

Life's Journey

This card made it's way to life with using a negative cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge.   The Swirl2 shadow cut at 5" created the frame for the great Basic Grey 'What's Up' paper.   All I added was an Inkadinkado framed sentiment that hangs from some House of Three twine.   Cute!

Hot Air Happy Birthday

This printed paper inspired me to make this birthday card.   The paper is from Basic Grey 'What's Up' 6x6 stack.   So cute!!  Then I found the stamp set from Inkadinkado and loved that hot air balloon.  I stamped it on a frame that I made using the Elegant Edges Swirl2 shadow only cut at 3" and then at 3 1/4".   I used dimensional foam dots between the two and mounted them on top of the Dear Lizzy ribbon.   The sentiment stamp is also from Inkadinkado and I used some pink Michael's gems to accent the hot air balloon stamp!
