Super Twisted Note Card Swap

28 Mar
Super Twisted Note Card Swap

Cards and Envelope Box

My friend Tmika host great swaps all the time on YouTube. The latest one has us using techniques and embellishments.  The 3 x 3 cards had to have a combination of four or more things going on.  I used five techniques…dry embossing, distressing, texture paste stippling, glittering the texture paste, and splattering/ misting, and four embellishments…flowers, punches, twine, and a dazzle sticker.

Here is a close up of the card…

As always, packaging is a big part of a swap.  Here is how I packaged mine…

Birthday Bendi Card – Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe

21 Jan
Birthday Bendi Card

Bendi Card

Bendi cards feature bands that bend or arc out from the base of a card.  The ways that people decorate them are endless.  You will see quite a variety of designs this week from the Design Team members of The Cutting Cafe as we used the Bendi – Bendy Card Template and Cutting File for our projects.

I stayed relatively simple for my birthday card.  I just added flowers, a gold glittered branch piece, and an Anna Griffin layered sticker.  I also added some acrylic bling dots and a crown which goes well with the queen for a day sentiment on the sticker.

Looking down on the card, you can see what the curved bands/flaps look like.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the card with the bands opened up.  They essentially are flaps that tuck into slots on each side of the card, causing the bending of the flaps.

A look from the top shows the curved bands.

Here is another view…

I used the back to house my sentiment, but you could also put it on the inside.

Birthday Bendi Card Back

A journaling card is used in back for the sentiment.

Zebra Baby Shower Card

17 Feb

My friend’s baby shower was yesterday and my mom needed a card.  The shower colors were pink, black, and white, with zebra print.  A couple weeks ago I posted my onesie card, which I used for a design team project, that I made for the shower.  So this one had to be just as cute.  I think it turned out great.  Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Birthday Flip Card

Valentine Birthday Flip Card

It is Inspiration Wednesday and time for a new project for The Cutting Cafe!  This week we could choose from any valentine file in the cafe to use.  I chose to use two files to create this card: The Square Flip Card Template and the This Cake is all Heart Printable Stamp Set. My aunt’s birthday is on Valentine’s Day so this card is for her.  The cake image is made of heart shapes and the inside sentiment, which comes with the printable stamp set, mentions both birthday and Valentine’s Day!  That was just perfect!  Be sure to stop over at the cafe later today to see all the latest design team projects!  Thanks for stopping by!

Sunshine Birthday Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

6 Feb

Even though it is February and there is snow in my area, Spring is in the air at The Cutting Cafe!  This week the design team was given a choice of Spring files to work with.  Be sure to visit the Cafe Blog Wednesday afternoon to see all the wonderful design team projects.

Since I had not done a word shaped card before, I took the opportunity to try out the Sunshine Shaped Card Template file.  It was easier than I thought.

I hand cut the word as well as the card background (easy to do without an electronic cutting machine).  I used grey card stock for the the actual card and layered the word in paper from DCWV’s Lemon Flower stack.  I used a chipboard sun and printed the sentiment out on my computer and punched it out with a circle punch.  Then, I just added flowers, a ribbon bow, and flat back pearls and there you have it a lovely card.  Thanks for stopping by and feel free to sign up to follow by email to the right of the screen!

Love Note Valentine Card Swap

18 Jan

I am participating in a swap on YouTube that is hosted by Markisha who is Staplem1 on YouTube.  There were two group choices.   We could choose to do Parisian or Shabby Chic.  It had to be an A2 sized card with at least three embellishments, a sentiment, and had to be finished both inside and outside.
