Red and Zebra High Heel Shoe Birthday Card

It is high heeled shoe #2!  I just love this file and I had another friend celebrating a birthday.  But, she is a shoe lover and she loves black and white zebra with red.  So I just had to make this for her!  Besides, I just love this file.  It is from The Cutting Cafe and is the High Heel Shoe Shaped Card.  I know this file will get lots of use.  If you want to see more shoes, this was a design team project a couple weeks ago.  Click here to see the things the team came up with!   Below are a couple more pictures and be sure to watch the video for more details.  Thanks for stopping by!

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!

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!

Exploding Box for Sweet Nothings Stamp Company Design Team Call

27 Jan

Here is my first exploding box!  Take the top off and the sides fall to reveal the inside design and message.  I decided to do this for the design team call for Sweet Nothings Stamp Company, which is a digital stamp company.  The image I used is Love Letter Sophie and I colored her with both Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.  I have her popped up on a part of a doily.

For the box I used the new valentine line of paper from My Mind’s Eye called Lucky in Love and I used roses  and metallic stickers from Michael’s.  I added white trim and flat back pearl trim from my stash, and hot pink glitter ribbon from Michael’s.  I thought the color combination was great and I really love the way it turned out.  Thanks so much for visiting.  Please feel free to follow on the right side 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.

Tri-Fold Valentine Card for The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

9 Jan

Today is Inspiration Day over at The Cutting Cafe!  That means new projects will be featured on the blog from the design team later on today.  I am excited to see all of the other designer’s projects!  This week we were given the task of using the Feb. 14 Printable Stamp Set.  I love all of the wonderful images in this file.  But because I used to do puzzles a lot, I was drawn to the puzzle images and used this for my project.  I also used one additional new file the Valentine’s Day Crossword Puzzle Printable Set and Colorbok paper and die cuts, K & Co. layered stickers, Spellbinders dies, and  a Martha Stewart Punch.  I also wrote the sentiment and inside middle copy.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the blog for new inspiration!

Happy New Year! Get to Know Me Better and YouTube Subscriber Giveaway!

1 Jan

Hello Everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful New Year’s!  I did with just my hubby and me.  We stayed in this year and enjoyed a great dinner and each other’s company.  Now I am up making videos and creating.  Over on YouTube, I responded to a craft tag started by The CoCo Martha who is a very funny and talented lady who I enjoy watching.  She posed nine questions for people to answer to help the crafting community know them better.  Below is my video answering those questions.

Next, I am doing my first subscriber giveaway on YouTube and the second video explains all about it.  I am so excited!  Thanks for visiting and be sure to check out my site tomorrow as I will have my first project for the Cutting Cafe’s Design Team posted!  WooHoo!
