Heavenly Days #1

I didn't think I'd have a card to share this weekend, but here is one:) I took a little time yesterday afternoon to get this one made.

This is the first card using my Stampin' Up! set called "Heavenly Days." The angel, the present, and the sentiment are from the set. Inside is another stamp from the set, the words, "Each new day is a gift - that's why it's called the present!" I colored with Prismacolor pencils and used some Gamsol. I cut out the present (even the loops on the bow!) and mounted it on a Pop Dot. I used Star Dust glitter on the wings.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Happy Fourth Birthday, Jonah!

Tuesday is the fourth birthday of one of our grandsons. He (for some reason!) likes the Trix bunny:) So, this is the card that I made for him.

I found the picture on-line. I printed it, along with the sentiment, on white cardstock. I printed it again on white cardstock and cut it out. I trimmed down the image with sentiment, and even cut off part of the bunny's left hand. I matted with blue cardstock. I added the cut-out bunny on top, gluing down his left foot and hand, and putting foam squares under his right foot and hand, head, and ears. The inside says, "have a very happy fourth birthday!)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Sticker Anniversary

Another thing I have out on my stamping table is stickers. And I've had this tri-fold, aperture card out for quite a while, too. Today's card combines them both. The circular sticker and the butterflies are from Penny Black. I mounted the butterflies on cardstock and cut them out, for more substance. I mounted them on Pop Dot pieces. The sentiment is an old wood-mounted stamp from My Sentiments Exactly. After stamping it, I embossed it with a not-yet-used embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I matted it with blue and mounted on Pop Dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Blue Thank You

One more card using my Hero Arts multi-step flower set - this time in blues. It's the smaller flower that I used for yesterday's card. I matted with black, and added a bit of greenery using a Spellbinders die. The sentiment was done using one of my new dies that I got through Amazon. The background cardstock is from an old Die Cuts With a View matstack and I matted it with a thinner black border.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Another Hello Card

In the Hero Arts set that I've used for my last two cards, there are two four-step flowers. Here is the second one. For today's card, I went with yellows and oranges/rust. After stamping it, I carefully cut it out and mounted it on Pop Dots. The greenery was cut with a new Spellbinders set of dies that I got at Michael's with a 60% off coupon and a gift card. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The card is done with ivory cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
