This little Sweetie just turned 3

My adorable Grandson Jacob just turned 3 and his Mimi (me) had to make his card.  Here's him blowing out candles on his new ride (from Great Grandparents Sugar and Big Daddy)
Those cupcakes have Avengers Rings which goes along with the Captain America Theme!

Here's the card I whipped up using what I had close by.

I'm sorry this isn't the best quality picture.  I used a stack from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby's brand).  I snatched one of my precut dies (made with scraps ahead of time) from Stephanie Bernards The Stamps of Life, buttons, floss, ink and went to town.  Love using pop dots to raise the sentiment and the number.

I'm off to make a Baby Card.  Have a great day!

Momma's Birthday Card

Hi there, it has been a while.  But I'm Back and hope to continue more postings.  I've been dabbling in a few other mediums and will share some of that later.  I always make my Mom a one of a kind card and don't repeat it for anyone else.  Here's what I came up with this year.

Been loving Stephanie Bernard's Stamps of Life Dies lately.  Cards go together fast and I have rather large collection of dies from many sources so mixing and matching is fun!  This card uses dies from Sizzix, Memory Box and Spellbinders.  I know, there is a lot of little pieces here.  I like to sit with a lot of scraps and cut out bunches so when I need them I have a little pile to choose from.  From Memory Box I used Amira Flourish, from Sizzix, 3-D Scallop with Gifts Drop-ins, Greetings Scalloped Edge Drop-ins and from Spellbinders, Spiral Blossom One, and the leaves are also Spellbinders.

The sentiment is from the Silhouette Store and cut using my Cameo.  The pearls are bulk bling from Want2Scrap.

Have a great day!

Wedding Card

My Daughter wanted a special card for her friends who are getting married at the Butterfly Conservatory this coming weekend.  She showed me the invite and told me to have fun.  So this is what I came up with.  I printed the sentiment and their names on the computer and cut using Spellbinders die.  A Martha Stewart border punch and butterfly punch embellish the embossed surface.  A homemade bow add sparkle when it's made from sheer ribbon.  The butterflies are sprayed with glitter.

This card is almost like the last one.

The Mothers Day Card I made in a previous post is very similar to this one.  It was a larger card, 6.5 x 4.5 inches.  This card uses the smaller dies in the Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles so it fits on a 5.5 x 4.25 inch card.  Papers are from My Minds Eye. I had the green netting in my stash, so I ran it through my Xyron sticker maker.  The flowers are Prima Bubble Green and the corner flower is sitting atop a large clear button.  Queen and Company's Orchid Pearls and Stickles Lime Green add interest as embellishments.  Justrite Stamps Large Fancy Sentiments is stamped with Momento New Sprout dye ink.

I did this layout for National Scrapbooking Day, a challenge over at  We had to use at least four square pictures on a layout.  I used my cricut to cut the title and then I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist.  Jacob was a good little model for these shots.  Papers are from The Paper Studio.  I do love folding flowers for little corner accents.  The button was made out of filmo clay and dotted with my signo pen.

Mothers Day Card

Happy Early Mothers Day to all!  This card is for my Mother and I used my brand new Spellbinders Dies  Resplendent Rectangles.  I've been drooling over these dies, seeing wonderful creations by fabulous designers, and had to have them.  They are a bit intricate so I recommend laying wax paper under the paper you are cutting in the die so it releases easily.  The sentiment is from Justrite Stampers All in the Family Large Sentiments.  The paper was a scrap I had, I think it was from My Minds Eye.  The flowers are from some silk flowers that I pulled apart and the leaves are folded ribbon.

Watch my very first video!

I like to customize my ribbon to match the ink I use on projects.  Below is my first video showing how to dye ribbon.  For this card, I used Basic Greys Green at Heart Paper, Spellbinders Lacy Ovals, Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals, Justrite Stamps Large Fancy Sentiments, Pallete Ink in French Lilac and a Pearl Pen in Cream.

Thanks so much for watching!  I would love to hear your thoughts!
