Send Good Wishes, I made two different cards.

 Sorry I have not been around much. Not been feeling very good but I’m fine and get back on track
 again. I made these cards for one of my clubs I belong to and I wanted to share then with you. We had to make a Birthday card. Of course nothing simple for me but this was not that hard at all and all the girls really like it in fact most of then made two. They thought it turned out so nice it would make a great Wedding card. Here is the second one I made also.

  As you can tell they are pretty much the same, I just used different punches and die cuts on then. I used my favorite color Brilliance Ink Sky Blue. Sponged around most everything tried to do it lightly. The sentiment was one I wrote using my word program.The embellishments are the same on both cards blue gems and pearls. I used a Pearl card stock and my sentiment would not go though my printer with that card stock so I had to use just my regular card stock that is why I used the Brilliance Ink Sky Blue it helps to hide the two different papers. Everything else is cut or punched out with the Pearl card stock.

   The first card I called Send good wishes and the second one I called Special Day. Now I will try and tell you what dies and punches I used on each card.
Start with Send Good Wishes. The card are center step cards (Both) Very easy to make. The center sentiment I cut out with Large Floral Doily Motifs Spellbinders Shapeabilities. I used mostly punches on this card Martha Stewards Monarch Butterfly. Garden Trellis, Doily Lace Trim, Double Pop Up Water Lily, Rock Fern that is from Punch Bunch.
Special Day. This is the main Spellbinders sets I used. So you can see what pieces. The sets are called Floral Doily Motifs and Floral Doily Accent and you can get both these sets ay Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design Store.

I also used on the Special Day card Magnolia Doohickeys dies the Flowers, Dragonfly and the flourishes. No punches.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Glad to be back.

It is a little late but This challenge is in Honor of Memorial Day.

Happy Birthday America 2011

With Memorial Day already over with all I could think of was Happy Birthday America. Memorial Day or July 4th I’m so proud of our Soldiers each and every one of then. So I created this card. Theme of the challenge is they want to see STARS in Honor of Memorial Day, This is for the Challenge #9 at SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge Blog. You need to use one of the stamps that they sell at Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design Store, I love the stamps she sells you should stop by and see all the wonderful ones she has in the store and she also has a lot of other things also. The stamp I used is from Victoria Case and is called “CELEBRATE”. The paper I used was Cryogen Heavenly white that is my favorite. I stamped the stamp with Memento ink tuxedo black. I used a Spellbinder Big Scalloped Ovals Large to cut the cake out. The paper I used in the background is from Die Cuts with a View.

HB America LG Rosette 

I punched the stars out with the Funky foam. That foam has so much glitter and it looks so pretty. I cut the sentiment out of paper.

HB America LG Rosette

I tried to make one of those banners that people hang in front of their house.

HB America mini rosette

I’m playing with my new toy. I just got Tim Holtz Alterations sizzix Decorative strip Rosettes it has 2 sizes. The upper one is the larger one and this one is the small one. I did not want to big of ones because then I can not put then on my cards, this size is perfect.

HB America image

This is it, the stamped image. The copic colors I used are R21, R22, R24, R27, R29, B21, B23, B24, B26. I used the Gellie Roll Clear star. Spica colors sky blue, orange, chocolate, yellow, red, melon and olive. i-Rock come in crystal or studs. I think they are made by imaginisce called hot rocks. i-Rock has a melting tool and what you do is put these little studs where you want then and then you use the heat tool and the top of the studs or crystals and maybe count to 5 seconds and the heat tool melts the glue that is under the studs and they are on your project. I got then at Michaels. I have had mine  for awhile but I have not used then so I better get then out and use then. Trying to use all my things I have.

I hope you are having a great week end. Thanks for stopping by.
