One Of A Kind..

Another simple card using CTMH stamp.

The image was stamped on white cardstock and mounted with some baby blue embossed cardstock (did the same for the sentiment). [I have to say the image stamped out perfectly--that's what you get when you use CTMH stamps. The quality of their stamps is excellent--I've discovered this by ordering other acrylic stamps--huge quality difference. I added a couple of sparkles and some ribbon and mounted to my card.] The patterned paper was from my stash (I got this paper for super cheap at one of the scrapbooking expos). I used my fiskars to cut the bottom of the paper and added some liquid pearls. I think the card turned out cute--great for a birthday for one of your girlfriends...

There's No One Like You...

I fell in love with this stamp set from CTMH. The flowers are so pretty and there is so much you can do with each image.
For this card I cut some patterned paper from my stash which looked foresty with my fiskars scissors and glued onto my card directly. I stamped some images from the stamp set on some white cardstock and layered some of the flowers and popped that whole image using some foam squares. I also stamped some images and the sentiment on the inside of the card. Added some ribbon and some sparkles and was done. Just looking at these images makes me want to play with them some more---so many possibilities... You'll see alot more of this stamp set...

Sweet...Birthday Cards.

A really quick and simple sweet birthday card.
I used some paper from DCWV called Sweet Shoppe--gorgeous papers--they look good enough to eat. I'm trying to be good and using some paper from my stash... Did I mention that I was a paper (actually any supply) hoarder? ;)
I stamped the cake image from the February Stamp of the Month from CTMH -- the stamps go great with this paper and matted it with some embossed paper. I cut the bottom of the card with my handy dandy scissors and added some sparkles, a ribbon, and some liquid pearls and wallah...

Side By Side...

The colors in this card are really pretty.

I used some of my patterned paper (I'm a paper junkie--I love it--but then can't bear to use it. I'm trying though). I buy individual sheets so sometimes can't remember the name of the paper co. - just warning you ahead of time.

I made a long card, rounded the corners of both the patterned paper and the card itself. Before gluing I added some ribbon across the top--trying to break out of the box a bit. I used double-sided tape and added glitter (it sticks like a charm and is less messier in my opinion). Stamped the sentiment on some white daisy, sponged, cut out the image and mounted with some foam tape. Oh and I added some patterned paper inside too that I cut out using my fiskars scissors--there is a peak of it in the last pic.

Patterned Paper: Can't remember. But if you really want to know I can look for you ;)

Oh Baby!!

Another baby card...
I used my cricut to cut out the letters for this one. I love the way it came out and how the letters all fit on the card. Actually-initially the letters were supposed to go across but I made them to big so I improvised--crafting is all about improvising...
I sponged the white cardstock to blend the colors all in. The white was a little too bright for these colors. I glued some vineyard berry cardstock at the ends of the card and then cut a little bit of the patterned paper with my fiskars and glued them on. Popped dot some buttons and then glued on the letters. This is my favorite cartridge for letters from Cricut-the Storybook font. It has a lot of cool other goodies in it too... The final touch was to add the "oh baby" sentiment.
I think the card came out pretty cute.

TGIF!!! Just A Note....

I have two cards to share today.

How cute is this card?
I love the colors and the stamp set.

This card reminds me so much of Spring --the flowers, the fruits, the allergies... =)

Another absolute Favorite of mine!
I made that lined paper from my CTMH Stamp -how cute did that come out?
For the bird cage...I didn't want it to overpower the sentiment so I first inked it and stamped it on a scrap paper and then I stamped it on the cardstock...that's why its so light.

Flower Card

I love this card. I pulled out my old CTMH wooden block stamp set for this one. Stamped it in some ink and then matted it a couple of times with the bamboo and amethyst paper. I used my cutter to emboss some lines onto my card and then sanded them. I love how that turns out. I embossed some bamboo cardstock glued it on and then glued on some paper from my scrapbin and added the stamped image. Finished off the card with a few sparkles from CTMH...
I think that the card and the colors are so pretty...

I love these little animals and they go perfectly with the animal crackers background. Although you can't tell, all of the animals have liquid glass on them --they are adorable--aren't they? Perfect of baby showers....birthdays.....little boys....
