Birthday Card

I got this new die called Die'sire Birthday Cake. ( It says Birthday Cake but it looks like a Cupcake to me) I saw a card made with it on Pinterest and decide to try to duplicate it. Here's my take on it. I used Stampin Up Crushed Curry cardstock, ink and ribbon.

I've been a bit under the weather these past few weeks. My sinuses have been reeking havoc on my crafting and zapping my energy. I finally felt good yesterday so I hurried home from work to play.

Creative Card Angels - Cards requested for "Grandma". She's 91 years old and loves to send out cards. I made these for her to send out. I hope she likes them.

The design is from the Silhouette Store (altered)

Also for the Silhouette store.

Lady In A Hat Card

I was bored and so I decided to play around with some of my toys.  This is the card I cam up with. I used  Silver foil cardstock for everything!!  Yall know I love all things shiny!
 I got the lady in the hat silhouette off of Google and traced it with my Cameo software. It was so easy!
Close up so you can see the detail. It's so hard to photograph foil. I tried de-stressing the embossing to give it an antiquated look.
 I popped up the front layers of the card to give it a 3D appearance.
Other supplies used: Spellbinders Majestic Circles Die Set
                                  Momenta Hello Die Set
                                  Stampin Up Favorite Things stamp set
                                  Spellbinders Sea Beauty Embossing folder

Birthday Card

I made this card for a special friend of mine that I met on the Cricut Cruise (crafting) back in 2012. We, along with my two other special friends, speak everyday via email or text. These ladies have become a part of my life and I treasure them dearly.

I used DCWV Mercury Glass Cardstock and the Anna Griffin Mix & Match Embossing folders along with the the Anna Griffin Minc and Heidi Swapp 3D Flowers. It's very hard to photograph foil but I hope you can see the details. It's really all gold foil and white.
 Front view
 Inside (also in gold)

Good friends are truly a Blessing.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Sympathy Card

Creative Card Angels - card request

I hate the occasion that I'm having to make these for but I do enjoy making cards to let others know that someone cares about them and what they are going through.

I used: KC & Company Designer Series card stock and Elizabeth Craft Designs, With Sympathy, die. The inside sentiment is from the Stampin Up Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set.
I also used a technique that I learned at my local craft store on the card front.  I embedded the "With Sympathy" into the card, that's why you can see the contrast behind it.
Close up. Embedded.


Have an awesome day!

Graduate Card

This card is for the daughter of one of my friends. She just graduated from college and she loves pink so I went with that! 

The card stock is from Authentique, the "Classiqu:Pretty" collection. I have no idea where I purchased it from as I have had it for some years. It's loaded with beautiful paper.

I used Spellbinders Labels Six for the silver foil label and pop dots to pop up the center label.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up Pure Gumption. I got the Congratulations from another unnamed set. I used Tsukineko Pearlescent Ink for the pink parts. This ink dries very shiny.

Close up of the Pearlescent Ink. So shiny!

Thanks again for stopping by.

Encouraging Cards for Father and Son

Creative Card Angels - card requests for a Father and Son going through a difficult time right now.

The one on the left for for the Son and the right one is for the Father.

For the son's card, I used the Stampin Up Dotty Angles stamp set and JustRite Extra Grand Sentiment stamps. I wanted to make it cheery.

Here's the inside:

For the Father's card I used a dies from Elizabeth Craft designs called Believe. I just realized that the "I" is crooked. lol

I hope my cards will bring some sense of peace to them. At the very least, they will know that there are people out there who care.

Foil Birthday Card

This card is all foil. I used my Anna Griffin Minc and images from one of her bundles. The card stock is The Be Bold , Be Bright Collection from The Paper Studio.  For the card base I used the #Ann Griffin Gatefold embossing folders.
(not the best picture but it's hard to capture foil)
