B-day cards

My daughters birthday is coming up soon so I figured I would get busy making her card.  I asked her what her favorite colors were (cause with kids they can change from day to day).  She said lime green and blue.  All rightie then.  I made the cake from the Simply Charmed cricut cart and used lime green and blue.  Added a couple of blue buttons with green twine tied through them.  So happy to get it done ahead of time.  Then............

She says you didn't ask what kind of animal I liked.  I knew right away what she was talking about.  The Create a Critter cart.  She loves the animals in this cart.  So I gave her the book to look through and tell me what animal she wanted.  She picked the lamb.  I decided since I already did lime green and blue on the cake card I was going to do the lamb card with the colors I felt like.  For this card I remember to write down what I cut the dies at.  I cut the lamb at 3¾".  Happy birthday at 1½".  The grass I cut from Straight from the Nest cart.  I used design studio to cut the grass because I wanted to make sure it would go the lenght of the bottom of the card.  I cut it at 2½" in DS.  I embossed the grass with swiss dots.  It is a 5X7 card.  Put a little bling by the Happy Birthday and I am now done with the 2nd birthday card.  I hope she likes them.  Thanks for looking.

Welcome card

Mary at Cardz TV is having a challenge for National Scrapbooking Day.  Make a layout or card using fruit.  You have till midnight May 13th to enter your project.  Boy am I glad she gave more time to get it done.  With all the contest and challenges going on over the weekend it was tough to get done what I did.  I made a pineapple card with the word welcome.  I cut the pineapple from Serenade cart at 3.5".  The welcome cut from the Cindy Loo cart at 1.5".  I used a A2 card, and I played with the white gel pen also putting some stitches and dots around.  Hope you like it.

MPS Challenge 12

This is the last challenge on My Pink Stamper.  Make a project with a kids theme.  Well since I already did one birthday layout I went on to do another for this challenge.  So I got 2 layouts done today.  I like making cards more then layouts but I need to do more layouts.  I still have lots of birthdays to scrap yet.  I used the SpongeBob cart for this layout also.

MPS Challenge 7

Here is number 7 of the challenge.  Make a scrapbook page.  I have only been scraping b-day pictures.  I am so far behind so I decided to start first with birthdays.  I used the SpongeBob cart.  My kids love SpongeBob.

MPS Challenge 5

My Pink Stamper challenge 5 is any 3D item.  So here is my try at making a purse/gift bag using Tags, bags, & boxes.  It didn't turn out perfect that is for sure but it was a learning experience.  I know I am running out of steam today so I don't know if I am going to be able to get the other 7 done.  I may skip a few.

MPS Challenge 4

My Pink Stamper's challenge 4 is a Mother's Day Theme.  Well I had already made my Mother's Day card for my mom and posted it.  I made another Mother's Day card.  I mean there is no crime in giving mom 2 cards on Mother's day.  I used Kate's ABCs (My favorite cart right now) to cut the vase with flowers.  I embossed the paper behind it using a cuttlebug folder Fleur De Lis.  I put some pearls in the center of the flowers.  Added a piece of paper lace doily to the bottom of the paper.  A dust pf ultra fine pink glitter to the doily.

MPS Challenge 3

This My Pink Stamper challenge was a breast cancer theme.  I used Gypsy Wanderings for the hope cut.  I didn't have any solid pink ribbon which I couldn't believe since I have a little girl.  I had sheer, polka dot, and stripe which I used here.  I need to put solid pink ribbon on my list.

MPS Challenge 2

The 2nd challenge is to use kraft paper.  I used the Heritage cart to make a parchment die.  Inked the edges up good to make the parchment look old.  Used a M's dollar bin stamp and stamped the word friendship on the parchment die.  I also used some flower stickers that my friend got me for Christmas in a bag of scrap goodies I got from her.  I doubt I will get to the 3rd challenge tonight.  I started late on this.

MPS Challenge 1

My Pink Stamper is having National Scrapbook Day challenges on her blog.  The 1st Challenge is to make something using a cupcake.  So I made a quick card using the Sweet Treat cart.  I cut the cupcake at 3.5".  I made the card where the top flap is tucked under the cherry.  Just bend it back slightly and the flap will pop out and you can open the card.  Here is the link for the challenge.  The Pink Stamper   She is giving away prizes.  Come join the fun!

Just a card

I made a anything goes card.  These always come in handy when you just need to stamp some kind of sentiment inside.  I had gotten a package of die cuts on clearance at Michael's.  I can't remember the brand name sorry.  I made it a A2 size card.  I inked the edge of the card with peeled paint distress ink and then went over it again with vintage photo distress ink.  I embossed the pink paper with a cuttlebug embossing folder, Birds and Swirls.  Inked the edges of that also.  I found some ribbon at Wal-Mart for a dollar a spool......what a great deal!  I added a chipboard bird cage......also from M's clearance stuff.  The tiny white bow with the flower in the middle I got at Wal-Mart for $1.27.  They were called Stylish Accents and were where the ribbon was.  A lot easier then trying to make a tiny bow like that myself.  I inked the die cut and chipboard in vintage photo.  Added some bling on the bottom and I got a card ready to go.  I have been so out of it with the rain.  It is such a downer.  I need to get busy and make some more the one I made here.  I have depleted my stash.  Time to get busy!  Hope you all have a crafty week.
