Sweet Christmas Thank You (12/17/2012)

I made a fun Christmas Thank You card, and I can't wait to show it to you:

This card is for a dear, sweet friend who hosts an annual holiday cookie & ornament exchange, and is truly one of the highlights of my holiday season each year!  I scraplifted this idea from a recent Lawn Fawn blog post, but changed it up a little to make it into a holiday Thank You!

I used Lawn Fawn's Sweet Christmas set, and stamped out the house, and some decorations, and colored them with copics and fussy cut them.  I also used a sentiment (with candy swirls!) from the Many Thanks set, which was the perfect compliment for this card.  I stamped the sentiment on some white cardstock that I cut out with my favorite Wonky Rectangles spellbinders die, then colored with a Distress Ink pad.

I tied a ribbon around a panel, and then layered up all the images and sentiment, and then added some sparkle.  I covered the gum drop candies with crystal effects and then sprinkled on some glitter. 

I also added some Martha Stewart red glitter glue to the eaves for extra sparkle, and some other random sparkles on the candy swirls.

And, I added in some sweet little gingerbread people inside, framing the sentiment.  I also put on some crystal effects on the sweet little buttons to help make them pop:

I really hope the hostess-with-the-mostest enjoys her card!

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!

Happy Birthday Foxy (12/14/2012)

Birthdays and Foxes do go together :)

A good friend had a birthday, and I just had to make her a PURPLE birthday card with a Fox on it :0  I scraplifted this idea from a Lawn Fawn blog post.  I cut out the frame and label shapes with Spellbinders Labels 18 and my Cuttlebug.  Then, I stamped out the fox and tree limb from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Forest,  and the hat from Hats Off to You, copic colored and fussy cut them.

I colored the background with Distress Inks and then stamped out the star from Critters Ever After.  I layered everything up, stamped a sentiment from Hats Off to You and used white heat embossing powder to make the sentiment POP.

I also put another sentiment inside the card, from Critters Ever After:

And, I also added some Martha Stewart glitter glue and Stickles to the front to add some sparkle:

I hope the Birthday Girl likes her foxy card!!  It was really fun to make :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!

Hawaiian Birthday Shirt (12/12/2012)

Today's card is full of sunshine and fun!  Let's say ALOHA!

I used the ol' favorite Lawn Fawn stamp sets for this card ... and did some versa mark inking of a happy birthday wish sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Check This Out set for the background.  I also used the dashes from another set, and I am totally going blank on which one!  OOPS.

I cut out a Hawaiian Shirt die (on card stock covered with double-sided adhesive), and also cut out the same image in adhesive backing, and masked off areas of the shirt and used all sorts of glitter to color in the shirt.

I also decorated the inside, with Happy Birthday in Hawaiian:

Hopefully the birthday boy will enjoy this card.  And, THANKS Terri for helping me with this card :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!

Happy Graduation (12/10/2012)

Today's card is to celebrate a friend's completion of Nurse's school and his Pinning.  I didn't have anything PUNNY to use, so I went with a Graduation-style setup, and I completely scraplifted this idea!  Let's check out the card:

I scraplifted this idea from Lawn Fawn's blog, which I look at every day :)  I love Karin A's card, and when I saw it recently, I knew I would have to try to replicate her card.

I stamped the dragon from Lawn Fawn's Critters Ever After and colored him with Copic markers, then fussy cut him out.  I also cut out two different sizes of Spellbinders Labels 18 dies, and used Distress Inks to color in the smaller one.  Then, I stamped the little star from Critters Ever After all around the background.  And, to "TOP" it off, since I didn't have a Nurses Hat, I used the Mortar Board from Lawn Fawn's Hats Off to You set.

I also used some Stickles and Martha Stewart glitter pens to add a lot of sparkle, to the inside of the stars, the dragon's scales and mortar board tassel:

I stamped out a sentiment on the front (from Critters Ever After), and another one (from Hats Off to You) on the inside and used white embossing powder on both to help make them pop!

Karin's card was so inspirational, and this was a fun card to replicate, and it seemed just the thing to celebrate my friend's accomplishment.

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
