Sunny Smiles

 


It's been a long time since I have posted here on the blog!  I have been on and off with my cardmaking and hope to be more active.  I wanted to share this card today to celebrate summer.  I found this great designer paper at Hobby Lobby of palm trees and used it as a border for my summer scene.  The sand was created by using designer paper as well.  I colored and cut out the image and than added dimension by coloring another section of the image (hula skirt n flower) and popped them up. A tiny pearl added to the center of her hair flower, than used my wave scissors and white gel pen. Two shades of blue for sky and water and circle punch for the sun. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Beachy Christmas for Rick

 

I wanted to make my hubby a special card this year.  He's been through so much and I am so grateful he will be here to share another Christmas with us.  He went through cancer and quad bypass surgery and he's finally feeling better!  He loves the beach and I had a blast making him this card!  I ended up adding teardrop bling on the Christmas lights on the palm tree!  He 
actually gave me that idea after he opened it (he said Im surprised you didnt put bling on the lights on the palm.)

Bits of red bling were added to the wreath on the van too.  Silver sakura pen was applied to Santas glasses n bucket. 

I am so lucky to have such a wonderful hubby!  I love you Rick!

Supplies: MFT Stamps, Pop Dots, Teardrop Bling, Red Bling Dots,Copics, Sakura Stardust Pen

Nice List


 Just finished up my Christmas cards for 2020 and mailed them today.  I was so wanting to add the snow drifts on all of them but due to personal issues I didnt have enough time.  I wanted to post one with the snow drifts (it doesnt show up in the pic but sakura silver pen was added on the caps for shimmer.)  Thanks to my Aunt Lori who gave me this adorable set and die cuts by Birdie Brown and on My Favorite Things store.  Because of Aunt Lori everyone will get this sweet Santa!  I added a pom pom on his hat and sakura pen on his buckle.  Dimensions were used on Santa n the snow drifts and the polka dot paper was a great backdrop for a look like snow is falling.

Supplies: MFT Birdie Brown Stamp n Die Cut Set, Copics, Sakura Stardust Pen, Pop Dots, Recollections papers, Snow Drifts Die Cut and Pom Pom.

CAS Mini Scene

Theres a CAS Challenge over at SCS to make a card that makes you smile and I had so much fun cutting out this cute Gnome and making a micro scene with him!  You can do this by stamping your regular sized image and scanning it and resizing it.  I made another one picture here with a different Gnome.

Pawfect Birthday

I had so much fun making this card!  It went to my Aunt Lori who I also call my Fairy Craft Mother (because she keeps me stocked in goodies.) She loves her doggies as so does my Uncle.  She just had a birthday and I knew just what I wanted to make her.  I love making scenes like this using different punches and images.  I will be sharing several other cards I have made since hibernating.  Love you Aunt Lori!  I hope your day was as special as you are!

Heartfelt Thanks

I made this for a challenge over at SCS for being thankful to all who are involved with helping out during this time.  I decided to make mine for chemists who are working to help to get this under control.   There are so many out there doing their part.  I hope we can all get back to normal as soon as its safe. I fussy cut the images, scored the paper for the wall, used brick emboss for the floor and a strip of white cardstock for the baseboard, Sakura stardust pen was used on the bottles and the tiny bubbles I added.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: MFT Cute Chemist, Recollections and DCWV, SU Papers, Copics, Brick Emboss for Floor, Score for walls, Pop Dots, Sakura Glitter Pen in Lime Green, Tiny circle punch for bubbles.
