Two Birthday Cards

Hi Everyone,
I bet once you see the inspiration picture from Stampin' Royalty you want to play along too!




I heat embossed with WOW gold embossing powder on rainbow paper, using my old wood Hero Arts Starburst Lace stamp. Added some gold Washi tape on the side and the sentiment. 
Here is that fantastic picture - I really liked the cake:


Another view of my card:



For my second card I got enticed by Inkspirational to play along in their current challenge - they have a fun inspiration picture - very appealing to me. I also knew right away what I would use to make my card and here it is:


I envisioned it differently and I am not really happy with the outcome. It actually was more work than I thought and I don't like the look of it. I think it's mainly that I did not really have the correct matching paper. Oh well. It is what it is. Somebody will get this card, that's for sure. Maybe one of my son's friends....

Muse Christmas Vision #46

Hi Everyone,

this week we have Stephanie Klauck from Round Here as guest Designer at Muse Christmas Vision and her card got me really excited! It is an amazing CAS card - it has it all - perfect layout and interest! I almost pulled out one of my deer stamps, but then I thought I should try to be a bit more original...



So I used this old wood stamp from Paper Source that had been collecting a lot of dust - only used once before..... I stamped it after I sponged the green rectangle - I made myself a mask with a rectangular die - much easier than trying to get a perfect rectangle with post-it notes. I filled in the berries with a white Sharpie.


To get some red in I added the red bow. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.


No is that card exciting you as much as me? I sure hope so!

Wishing You Brighter Days

Hi Everyone,

I am playing along with this weeks CAS Colours and Sketches challenge - I have the graphic below.  A real fun sketch - different, that's what I like about it!
The colors I got from the current Color Throwdown, also see below.


I first thought about going quite literal with it, but then I decided against that. Used a curved die from SSS to cut my top panel and used my NBUS Uniko stamps to fill in the bottom panel. The sentiment is also by Uniko. The butterfly is a punch by Martha Stewart. Added tiny sequins and some Stickles.

Unique Eggplants!

Hi Everyone,

sharing a quick card I made for the One Layer simplicity challenge this month. The theme is fruit smoothie. That stumped me at first - not a lot of fruit stamps...but then I remembered my ancient wooden eggplant stamp from A Stamp in the Hand - sadly that company does not exist anymore....


Now if you are wondering what an eggplant has to do with a fruit - it IS one! I am quoting Wikipedia here:
"Eggplant (Solanum melongena) or aubergine is a species of nightshade grown for its edible fruit."

Now I do have an apple stamp from that company and a pear, but I was fixated on eggplant....
So I took my markers and colored the eggplants - they look kind of blue here, but that has to do with my camera being unable to handle the color purple....

And then I needed a sentiment....my usual haphazard way of creating a card - starting and then what???
Finding a suitable sentiment was NOT easy, after all, those are eggplants...


Solved the problem!

Supplies: 
A Stamp in the Hand, TAWS, Markers

JOY CLAIR - DIEVERSIONS & DL ART BLOG HOP

Joy Clair - DieVersions & DL Art Blog Hop


We here at Joy Clair have collaborated with two awesome companies: DieVersions and DL.ART to come up with a fun and festive Celebration Blog Hop. We want to showcase how well our three companies products work together. Joy Clair makes high quality clear stamps; Die-Versions makes very intricate and lovely dies and DL.ART makes gorgeous rayon hand dyed crinkle ribbon and also carries bakers twine and other hand crafted seasonal supplies.

The Celebration Blog Hop will take place on Wednesday, May 18th, Thursday, May 19th and Friday, May 20th. Over the three days all Design Team Members will be sharing with you projects they have made for all the many upcoming Celebrations that come around this time of year, ie....Weddings, Baby Showers, Baby Births, Graduations, Father's Day, and of course Birthdays! All Design Team Members will be using supplies from all three companies to make their projects so you can see for yourself how lovely these products work together and how dies, stamps and ribbons are the perfect combination!!



Well, both my graduation cards don't need much of an explanation. Took paint chips for the die cuts. Heat embossed my sentiment and added little strips of striped paper (an envelope liner - upcycled). Added splatters to the male card and sequins to the female card and adorned both with that beautiful crinkly ribbon. I usually don't use ribbons on my cards - mainly, because I can't make pretty bows.... but those are real easy!!! Even I could do it! What a fantastic product!


For my baby card I die cut the cute booties twice in purple - comes out more blue in the photo and tied the together with that wonderful ribbon. Stamped the sentiment on PP and added sequins.

My supplies:
Joy Clair - Oh Baby
Whispers - Graduation CameosWhispers - Baby Girl Bootie

Joy Clair is giving three gift cards of $25 dollars of the Joy Clair Store. One for each day! Die -Versions is giving away a $50 00 Gift Certificate to the Die-Versions store. DL.ART is running a 3 day Special during the Blog Hop for all of the Design Team Followers ~ 12% off your entire order at DL.ART by using code: DJDHOPS ~ this code will only be valid on the 3 days of the Celebration Blog Hop.

My card this time is real simple!
