Superman Birthday Card

Card Request - Creative Card Angels

This card for the 6th birthday celebration of Lucas.

Lucas has an incurable form of cancer. His parents requested cards for his birthday through their local news media and Facebook.  My friend, Felisa, saw it and suggested that the "Angels" participate in this event.

You can read Lucas' story and follow his journey here:

He loves Super Heroes so this is what I came up with:

 Back: I made a little Cape to go on the back of the card.  Just playing around with it.
 Side view: I did not glue down the bottom of the Cape because I wanted it to appear to flying in the wind.

Thanks for stopping by and if you have time, please drop this little guy a card. It can be handmade or store bought. It's the thought that counts!

His address is;

 Lucas Bear Heroes
40 E. Chicago Ave.
Chicago, IL 60611

Glamorous Birthday Card

I was playing around with my new die that I got from Ecstasy Crafts and this is what I came up with.

The die is called "Glamour Puss" by Tattered Lace.
I used the Stitched Ovals dies from Gina Marie to create the labels

 The borders and the foliage are both Spellbinder dies, Bracket Borders and Foliage Two. 
The Happy Birthday Is from JustRite Stampers.

I love this die. It came free with The Tattered Lace magazine. The magazine also gives you different ways to use this die on your cards. I think this will easily become one of my favorite dies. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Washi Tape Cards

I own a lot of Washi Tape so I decided to put some of it to use for the card group that I am a member of, Creative Card Angels. I only did five (5) this time, but I plan on making more. Washi Tape is a quick, easy & fun way to dress up a plain card. Just use your imagination.

Birthday Card

Card Request - Creative Card Angels - 18th birthday card.

The young lady I made this card for is a dancer. Let me see if I can this this right....A ballet pointe, modern hip-hop dancer ( this from her mom).

I used the animal print paper from Recollections. I've been wanting to use  this paper for something (been in my stash for years) and it just so happens this young lady loves Zebra print! So it's a win-win! lol


I also used The Spellbinders Modern Stationary dies and Joy! Crafts French Lily Border.
The inside sentiment and images, I got off the internet. The front dancer is cut with my Cameo.

Thanks for stopping by!

Congratulations Card

I made this card for my daughter in celebration of her new job. We're so proud of her and wish her well on her new venture.

 I finally got to use my Spellbinders Grate Effect Card Creator die. I've had it for quite some time and never used it. My friend Treva made a beautiful lavender and white card with it. That inspired me to try to use mine. The vine is from the Spellbinders Flower Bundle die set. I chalked the white flowers with a hint of red to give them a little color.
Close up. I did two different colors of foil. The bird is gold foil and the rest is green foil. I highlighted the leaf veins with a gold foil pen.

50th Anniversary Card

This is a card request from Creative Card Angels.  I got the idea off of Pinterest and added my twist to it.  I love the simplicity of it, yet it sparkles brightly. It was very hard to get a good picture so I was posted several views for you.

 In the dim light, you can see the sparkle
This is the card with a black background.
I couldn't decide which background I liked best,
so I posted both.

What I used: Recollections Glitter Cardstock
                      Top Dog Numbers dies
                      We R Memory Keepers Butterfly Embossing folder
                      Anna Griffin Camilla Lace Embossing Folder
                      Nellie's Heart Dies
                      Happy Anniversary was printed on my laser printer and gold foiled with my AG Minc.

Thanks for stopping by!
