Petite Petals Card

The flowers are Petite Petals stamp and punch.  I used Bermuda Bay ink for the flowers and Yellow Oche for the sentiment.  The vines were stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.  Inspired by a Stampin' Up demonstrator.


Motorcycle Inchie Card

The motorcycle is a Stampin' Up image.  I used portions of two other larger stamped images across the bottom.  Inspiration for this card came from one done by Deb Valder.

Blue Blowfish Birthday Card

A simple card done with a clip art image.  I printed it twice and cut the cake out so it could be pop dotted for dimension.  The inside sentiment is "Laugh, Celebrate, Enjoy!".

Paper Napkin Technique Cards

The technique for applying paper napkins onto cards has been around for quite a while.  The local Dollar Tree has a large selection of napkins pretty enough to use so I decided to give it a try.

 The napkin gives a really nice, velvety texture to the card front.
On this one, I added some punched photo corners done in gold metallic paper.

This is pretty simple to do.  Just separate the napkin into a single layer, trim to fit and coat the cardstock with glue stick and then gently apply the napkin.

Make A Wish

The candles were cut with my Cameo.  I printed the sentiment then punched it with a Stampin' Up Decorative Label punch.  Since the punches are available in digital format too, I cut the shadow with Make The Cut software.  The background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.

Hedgie Birthday Card

Splitcoast Stampers was the inspiration for this card.  I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the base and colored the hedgehog with Promarkers.

Bingo Birthday Card

Inspired by a card seen on Pinterest.  I found a clip art image of a bingo card, printed it and the red lettering in Hallmark Card Studio then embellished the card front with some baker's twine.

Make A Wish Card

Inspired by a card seen on Pinterest, I modified the card and added a faux candle cut from a piece of paper straw.  The straw was cut down the back side so the wick could be glued down.

For the card I cut a 4 x 5 1/4" rectangle of solid pink, a 3 x 4 1/4" scalloped rectangle, and a 2 1/4 x 3 1/2" dotted rectangle using Make The Cut software.

Happy! Happy! Happy! Birthday Card

Pinterest inspired card.

Make A Wish

A simple clip art image colored with Promarkers.  I used MTC software to cut the triangles and added a couple of punched circles and some pen stitching.  Inspired by a card seen on Pinterest.

Cupcake Builder Punch Card

I saw a card online that had the Stampin' Up cupcake punch images on it and realized I hadn't used that punch in quite a while.

The blue background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder; the cupcakes are mounted onto 1 3/4" circles and I added some tiny premade bows.
