Perched Bird...

My Aunt got me some goodies for my Bday and I used a few of them to make this card...I love designer papers and its fun to just take a piece out of the stack and make it a focal point on a card..On this one I cut out a portion of the DP then added the punched out bird since it fit well with the sentiment...I was tickled pink to get some great SU colored papers that I also got a chance to use...I layered the sentiment on the red then distressed the edges and popped it up against a swiss dot embossed paper that I scalloped cut the bottom and also distressed....some buttons for fun and a bit of black bling for the birds eye...I have to say I had so much fun making this card! Thank you Aunt Lori for all my wonderful goodies!! Love ya!!

Hi! Hope your doing great! Well I am sure all the Graduates are enjoying their summer...I made this card a while back for the shop and it was a success...I love using stickers and coordinating papers to make a quick card that has some pop...On this one I picked up some really neat silver paper that has a bit of sheen and texture to it...I kept this one clean and simple...Theres a bit of bling on the cap that was already on the sticker...Tip: For stickers I like to lay the sticker down on cardstock then cut out around it to give it more substance.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs....Cookie

Happy Birthday Bill!

Hi! Hope you are doing great! This post is dedicated to my hair stylist and friend Bill Dodge his salon is Scizwiz Hair Salon and he and the staff are the BEST!...His Birthday is coming up very soon and this is the card I made for him...He has been so sweet to put my cards in his shop and I am very grateful for that....He is awesome at his job and a very kind person...I love ya Bill! Happy Birthday!!!
On this card I added Sakura Stardust Pen in Red for sparkle and stamped the moose twice so I could cut out a portion and pop it up for dimension...I love this stamp the only draw back is the banner is blank so you have to either write in it (and my writing is bad) or what I did was stamp the image scan it then open it in your photo program and add your own font, print it out and cut and pop it up over the original stamped good thing is you can put whatever you want that way and pick your own font...Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!

You decorate my life...

Hi! Theres two challenges going on over at SCS today...both are to do One Layer Cards...The TLC277 challenge is just a One Layer Card...The CAS71 Challenge is to make it one layer but make it something that flies...Oops...It hit me after I uploaded it that unless you are one of those people at a party who grabs onto one of these and flies around the room...Like in the movies...That this may not fit that one....But I had fun making it...One layer cards really get me thinking...because you want it to still have some punch and sometimes thats hard with one layer...I would have loved to have had some teardrop bling for this but I ran out so I used just regular bling bling...a bit of gingham was used to make a bow and a glue dot secures it....You decorate my life was a sentiment that came to mind being the card is kind of fancy...or you could say "You light up my life" either way I will have both of those songs stuck in my head now...Kenny Rogers "You Decorated My Life" and Debbie Boones "You Light Up My Life"...Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! Ok now you know I have to put up a video of Kenny!

Happy Everything!

Hi! I hope everyone had a great memorial day weekend! I found these two stamps at Michaels in the dollar bin...I have always wanted a birdcage stamp so I had to get this cute little guy...The sentiment was a dollar too and I thought the "g" in everything would be a great place to hang the cage from with a jumper ring, I tied a tiny black bow and used a glue dot to hold it in place....I made it "Clean and Simple" favorite style! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!
