My friend needed a Birthday card and wanted it to be shoe themed. I had decided what I was going to make, then I saw this video. Click here. She gives step by step instructions. I didn't have the Stampin' Up! tools, so I used my scallop scissors and went from there. Some of my measurements are smaller or bigger to fit my card. I used Wedding, Gypsy Wanderings, and Forever Young for my shoes. I added a little bling or stickles where needed.
I have a friend who is ill and I thought I'd make him a card to cheer him up......or at least make him laugh~ I used Create A Critter for everything except the saying. I printed that out on my printer and hand cut it. Haven't done that in a long time!!! Added the swirl embossing for the "water" and raised up the frog and I was done~
My friend asked me to make a graduation card for her. I asked her what the school colors are. Black and white! I used the Happy Graduation cartridge for most of it. The numbers can come from really any cartridge. I added some black and white twine, a couple of brads, and used my Cuttlebug to emboss the background. I used my new 5 x 7 Polka Dots embossing folder. I like the way it turned out~
My friend is having a baby boy. I wanted to make a card with the same colors as the blanket I made for her shower. I used a lot of my scraps for this card, which always makes me happy. The grass was made using Straight from the Nest (I also inked the edges with brown ink), the scalloped edge using Plantin Schoolbook, and the clothesline and shirts using Straight from the Nest. I stamped the "baby" heart and cut it out, ran the blue paper thru my cuttlebug using polka dots, and threw some brown twine on there for good measure.
I loved making this Mother's Day card. It was SOOOOOO easy. I used Don Juan for the rectangle part of the card and My World for the fence. I used my Gypsy to weld 2 fences together, then welded that to the rectangle. The flowers came from Country Life. The butterfly is made of twine. I used a fork to make that.
