Happy Birthday!


I made this card for my Step-daughter.  I really had fun making it using a new die I found on (skirt and bodice).  And my Step-daughter loved it!  Plus I stamped flowers on the envelope and colored them.  I forgot to take a photo of the envelope Sad smile

Check out the Rhinestones.  I found them online and created a transparent image so I could add them to the photo.  I used Paint Shop Pro and it took me a while trying to remember how to make them transparent and add them to the photo.

Happy 9th Birthday

I made this card for my Grandson Levi.  I was running out of ideas on what style card to make him.  After searching for inspiration I found several cards using an Outer Space theme.  I knew he would love it.  I always wanted to make a space sky background using water colors.  I knew I would not have the luck to make it look like it should.  I found some digital background papers on Etsy.  I bought them and printed the one I liked best.

We celebrated Levi’s Birthday by going to his favorite restaurant.  And we had a great time!  And he loved his card.

Details:  Astro Suit Die (Memory Box); Outta This World Sentiment (Memory Box); Background Paper (Etsy); Rocket, Planet, and star dies from my stash.

Happy Birthday

I created this card for one of my special friends, Karen.



I used a Spellbinders die for the lattice backgrounds.  The bow on the front of the card is also a Spellbinders die.  The water colored  flowers were painted  with  Zig Clean Brush Markers. The Floral (Cosmos)stamp is by Technique Tuesday.  The doily behind the small gift bag is made by Cutter Bee (EK Success Brand).  The gift bag die is from AliExpress.  Flowers, bling, tag in gift bag and other papers are from my stash.

Sharing New Cards

Below are three cards I made using new dies from AliExpress and  I did not add any sentiments on the front/inside yet.  I am slowly adding to my card stash.

(The pale colors were not picked up in the photo as hoped.  I used pale pink for the card base and flowers.  And white cardstock for the floral border die.  It is so pretty in person.  I love the soft colors.)
