Stampin Up Cake Soiree

I just love this stamp set from Stampin Up. I saw an adorable card on Pinterest and knew I had to make my own version. Each flower is stamped and heat embossed. The "Celebrate" tag is Spellbinders Victorian Tag 2.  I used gold foil cardstock for the cake base.

Pirate Card - Girl's Version

This is a card request from the Facebook Group Kind Cards for Cool Kids.
The little girl had to have eye surgery and will need to wear a patch for a few months. No worries, her Mom says she loves Pirates and loves to be called Pirate Aria!

Update: Her mother says he loves her card! That makes me very happy.
All images are from the Silhouette store except for the Pirate. I found her on Google, added an eye patch and then did a print and cut. I used glitter vinyl for her name and Ahoy!.

Because I care

I was playing around with my embossing folders and embossing powders and this is what I came up with. It's hard to get a good photo because of all the shimmer but it's really shiny.  I love it!

Masculine Birthday Card - Foil Quill

This card was for my Father-in-law's birthday. I had just gotten my Foil Quill from HSN and decided to use it. It's really an easy tool to use, once you find the right images to use. Single line items give you the best results. The border, cake and balloons are from the Silhouette Design Store. The font  has a double line in the middle of each letter. I choose this font because it gives the appearance of solid fill.

Lemonade Anyone?

I made this card for my little cousin, Tameia.  She sold lemonade all year long to raise money to go on a field trip to Washington, D.C. with her 5th-grade class. My husband and I decided to donate to the cause since she is out of town and we could never get there when the Stand was open. Be sure to check out her Lemonade Stand below.

Father's Day Card for the Hubster!

My Father's Day card for my husband. The front is symbolic because he is a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc and one of their most used symbols is the diamond. Their colors are Crimson and Cream thus the colors of the card.  Needless to say, he loved it.

The front frame is from the Silhouette Store. I made the diamond frame using the replicate feature in the Silhouette Software.

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there!

Father's Day Card

I tried my hand a water coloring with pencils. While not perfect, I loved coloring this card (the fish needs work but maybe next time!) I used images from my Stampin Up "Best Catch" stamp set.  I stamped the images, scanned and resized them to fit this card. The inside is a phrase from the Silhouette store. Be sure to check out the inside below!
