Valentine Birthday

 Since my husbands birthday is on Valentines' Day,I usually make him two cards. Makes my brain over work. but worth it. One is called Love, and the other on Song In MY Heart. First  "Love" , Queen of Hearts Memory Box die, card stock PTI white,embossed with Paper Studio Macraco, ribbon Cranberry Crinkly from My Craft Spot, gems, stash, I then cut around sentiment with Friskars heartbeat scissors, thought that would add the extra feeling of a beating heart. Ink is then Memento Ink Love Bug. I decided to use the red print paper I had with XX for kisses. The extra gems are from stash. So Hugs and Kisses with hearts of love.

Song In My Heart, is the second one. I love this stamp from GK Because of You, and the music die is Party Music from Memory Box, fits perfect with the dancing couple. I used the same ink as the other one to accent, Friskars heartbeat scissors again, hearts a beating. Gems, stash, card stock is White and Autumn Rose form PTI,embossing folder with music is Cuttle bug. I love making these cards. last year I made a cake, cup, and place mat all from paper, a challenge each year to be creative. But he's worth it....thanks for looking.

Elliot's 21st Birthday

My grand-son will 21 this year. A big time in a young man's age. So I thought I would make a Big 21.I used PTI card-stock, white, and enchanted evening blue. the white cs was distressed with faded jeans, spiced marmalade, and festive berries. When I distressed I wiped across the cs not worrying how or where to achieve the background. I wanted it to be bright and many colors. Then the firecrackers and 21 was cut with the Independence Day Cricut and George and Basic Shapes with my expression machine.. Haven't used these for awhile , need to remember them more often. I covered the numbers and some of fireworks with Stickles gold an let dry over night. Spellbinders Scallop Heart  is edged with gel sliver pen..Fireworks on background are a stamp I have had for years. Memento ink, Rose Bud, and Danube BlueScalloped edge is an EK punch.

The inside has a firecracker on the note page. Like the way it turned out, just hope he does.......thanks for looking.

Winter Wind

I had colored this Sarah Kay, with colored pencils awhile ago, decided to use for a just because card.
I love to use Prisma colored pencils, the frame is Spellbinders classic rectangle Lrg. then I distressed the edges with Tea Dye. for that fall look. the corners are Martha Stewart snowflake. All the fall maple leaves were punched out with scraps of  leaves paper, and the punch is one I have had for yrs. It was small, and I like that touch. Base paper was Papertrey Ink, dark Coco. I like the weight of their paper.  You will notice on the right side the colored leaves. there is a strip inside the card of the fall leaves. and this card is cut not even for the leaves inside to show when closed. OH! almost forgot the Amira Flourish by Memory Box, and PTI Berry Sorbet cs is behind the image. Thought it added more color to the image .Hope you like her and........
thanks so much for looking.
