Ok on to the card.
So here is my little cutie!

I used Create a Critter 2 for the little bee cut. I cut her out @ 3 ½”
The base of her is black glitter paper. The other layers are just randoms I had in my scrap file.

For the card I use a Kraft base that measures 4 by 5 ½”
Then I added a black glitter layer that is ¼” smaller than the base.
The heart layer is next and I cut it ½” smaller than the black. I then ran it through the swiss dots cuttle bug folder.

For the stamp I used a studio g stamp that said be mine so after stamping that I added an extra e.

I think it turned out so cute.

All that Stickles Challenge entry

Hi Crafty Friends!
I hope you are all well today. I am doing wonderful!

I love Stickles!!!! How bout you? Have you heard that there is a challenge blog dedicated to STICKLES!!! YAY!! This weeks challenge was to use x-mas red stickles.
So here is my project for the challenge.

I used the art philosophy cartridge for the scallop oval, oval and scallop borders.  The Hearts come from the sweetheart cartridge.

I popped some of the hearts up and stickled the red hearts with Christmas red stickles and on the tan heart I used crystal stickles (my fav)

I had so much fun making a card for this challenge. Here is the link for the blog. I hope you will go and check it out.

Flowers for my friend Valentine's day Card

Hello Crafty Friends!
I hope that you had a great weekend. I know that mine was great even though it was uneventful. I enjoyed spending time with my family and getting some crafting in.
I have a super cute Valentine’s day card to share with you today. I used 3 birds on parade and a paper heart doily to create my card. Take a look!

The bird is cut @3” from 3 birds on parade. I just inked the edges and for the flowers I used flat back pearls and colored them with my copic light orange marker to change their color. I then added glossy accents to the beak and legs of the bird.
The doily came from a large pack that I picked up at the dollar store. I used memento ink in a very light pink to change the color of the doily. I then added that to the card.

I used some American crafts ribbon along the top.

The sentiment is from studio g.

I think that is all that I did. Sorry I didn’t write down all my steps this time as I wasn’t planning on sharing this one. But when it came out so cute I just had to let you see it.

Until next time

Kreative Karma DT Post "Lovin' Those Birthdays"

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today is my design team post over at Our Kreative Karma! Our theme this month is "lovin those Birthdays" so you may be asking what does that mean. well since it is February  we can make either a birthday project or something for love and Valentine's day. I chose to make something for Valentines day!

So Here is my Love inspired card:

The card is A2 sized measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2
The brown dot layer is 5 1/4 by 4
The pink rose layer is 5 1/4 by 3
The banner is 5 by 2 1/2
I used the fiskars scallop punch to add a border to each side of the banner.
Then I added flat back pearls to each scallop.

For the heart. I used the Close to my heart Artiste cartridge and cut the scallop heart at 1 1/2" and the regular heart @ 1"

I then added crackle accents to the heart for a vintage look.

 I then used the close to my heart love and comfort sympathy set for the sentiment. I stamped it with tuxedo black ink.

                         I used brown ribbon to tie a bow around the banner portion of the card

So there is my lovely "vintagey" feeling card.

I would love for you to stop by over at the Our Kreative Karma blog and follow us.

Thanks a melon!

Hi Crafty Friends!

I am so happy to be able to post back on my blog. My keyboard on my computer had been messed up since the doggy drink accident. I had ordered one a week ago and when it came it was the wrong one so I had to order another and It finally came today and we got it installed. Super happy Girl right here!!!

I have a cute little shaped card that I wanted to share with you today.

I sized every thing in my gypsy and I didn't save the file so I am not really sure of the sizes. But the watermelon cut comes from simply charmed.  I just welded together 2 of the bases and then created the layers. I ran the red part the Swiss dot cuttle bug folder and inked it with festive berries distress ink.

For the little tag I use Pink Stampers fruit and veggie puns and added some red bling. I tied a bow with doodlebug limeade twine.

Thanks for stopping by!
