Whoo's Having a Birthday!

Hello crafting friends! Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made a few weeks ago but hadn't gotten posted with all the holiday stuff going on. Don't you think it's hard to make cards for guys sometimes? This was made for a fella and I think it shows that you can always use a little bling - even for the men in your life (note the brown rhinestones on the sentiment). This is a 4.25" x 5.5" card using my Cricut Explore to cut the owl and branch as well as the sentiment shapes. I didn't have stamps for what I wanted to say so I printed the sentiments and then cut them out in the shapes shown.

Warm Winter Wishes!

Merry Christmas everyone! I'm sharing with you the card we mailed out to our friends and family this year. I was going for a frosty, snowy feeling and I do feel like I achieved it by using embossed vellum as the mat and white sequins to resemble snowflakes.

Aye Chihuahua Birthday!

Hello! Today I'm showing you a card I recently sent to a co-worker for her birthday. She lives in Florida and heck, compared to where I live and most of the rest of the country, it's tropical. After all those snow related Christmas projects, a little warmth was a nice change of pace!

Basketball Fever!

Hello! Although I've been doing a lot of Christmas crafts this month, there's been a few birthdays and I also do a little scrapbooking on a regular basis in order to keep up - or stay just a couple years behind as I am now.

Berries and Trees - Christmas Card

I've worked up a few different projects I'll share with you this week. Today I'm sharing a card that incorporates embossing, chalking, stamping, alcohol marker coloring, glitter and sequins.
