Let's Party!!!

Feeling really, really, really  good today considering I'm another year old :-) Yep it's my birthday and I would like to share a birthday card I created :-) I had a ton of fun making this little card...lovin' the colors and how happy it makes me feel :-)
The base of the card is 6 1/2 x 6 cardstock which is then folded in half. I then cut various sizes of patterned paper and adhered to the front of the card. I used the Sizzix Bigz Rolodex die and then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Once Upon a Princess Cupcake folder. I did ink all of the edges of paper with Sweet Melon Color Box Classic Pigment Cat's Eye ink.The rubber stamp is from Studio G which I stamped onto a piece of cardstock. I then stamped the image on some light blue and brown cardstock which I fussy cut that out and glued to the main birthday cake image. I colored the flames orange and a red bling to the top. Last but not less I used a Note rub on from Maya Road to make the small tab on the Rolodex card.

I hope this has inspired you to create something fun!!! Thanks for stopping by and looking!!!
Enjoy creating!

What's on My Desk?

I would like to share my first project I created for the Crafty Card Gallery design team challenge of "What is on your desk?". For this challenge we couldn't go out and buy any scrapbook paper, embellishments or new stamps. The team had to use what we had on hand or on our desk. Since I have packed up almost all of my craft supplies I had to dig through boxes...I'm still in the middle of getting my dream craft/guest bedroom ready....once that is finished I will share photos :-)
Below is the card I created...

 I used a 7x6 inch piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper which I folded in half to give me a 3 1/2 x 6 card. Since I always have scraps of cardstock and pattern paper laying around I cut various strips for the front of the card. I inked all of the edges with Versa Magic Dew Drop Chalk Ink  in Aquatic Splash and then adhered to the card front. Next I stamped the Inkadinkado snowman stamp with Versa Magic Dew Drop Chalk Ink in Sahara Sand and then cut the image out. For the snowflake I used chipboard and cut it out using my Sizzix snowflake die. I then inked it with Versa Magic Dew Drop Chalk Ink in Oasis Green. When it was dry I lightly Sprayed Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist in Pearl on the snowflake. Once dry I adhered the snowflake to the front of the card and then glue the snowman image to the corner of the snowflake. The finally touches I used some Prima swirly pearl bling...I'm not sure exactly what it is called but you get my drift and last but not less I added some Robin's Nest Dew Drops in Fresh Mowed Grass to bling up the snowflake.  

Please check out the other design teams blogs and see what they had on their desk too when you get a chance.
Thanks for looking and I hope this inspires you to create something fun and enjoy creating!!!

Swaps and The Scrappin' Queens

I'm popping in for a very quick post :-). I have been super busy with swaps, crafting and trying out for design team calls. I did submit some of my past projects to Dawn Duntley's Facebook group "The Scrappin' Queens " Artist of the Week call. Well guess what?!?!?!? I got selected...squeaks of excitement and of course I was doing the happy dance too :-) Below is the screen shot of my famous moment. If you get a chance please go over and "like" The Scrappin' Queens page.

I don't do as many swaps as I use to but I couldn't past up Steffo Miller aka "With a Grin" super fun tag swap. I had to send in 20 #6 tags with 10 of one image and 10 of another image stamped in Staz-on ink. I went a little overboard and created little kits. I can't wait to see what I get back!!!

Next I altered a mini Fall themed matchbox for a swap I was in on Swap-bot and filled it with all sorts of fun tidbits of craftiness. The lighting wasn't that good so the colors aren't as viberate as I like. I also used my camera awesome app on my iPhone too.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to create something fun and enjoy creating!!!
