WSC65- Magic!


This is my weeks entry in the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  I had the opportunity to use a lot of my new MFT supplies!


I used the new Pure Innocence Magician stamp and she is a cutie!  I paper pieced her dress and then colored her with Copic markers.  I also used the Open Scallop Doily and the Oval tab dies as well as the mini rolled roses die.



Black and red is one of my favorite color combinations and I really like the elegance it added to this card.  I used lots of red and black gems and gave it a little shine with some Stampin Up! silver glitter paper.



Inside I used some of the same papers and a sentiment from the magical VIP collection.

These are the MFT supplies I used for this card.

Happy Birthday!

My niece will be turning 8 at the end of this week and she is a little bit of a cowgirl.  She rides horses and wears cowboy boots but in a very girly way.  I wanted to make her a card to help celebrate and I also used this card for the My Favorite Thing Wednesday Stamp Club challenge #64.


I used the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Cowgirl stamp set along with the Die-namics country charm die set.  The designer paper I used is My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally 6x6 paper pad.  It has some very cute county-ish papers.  I especially love the wood paper.  I colored this cowgirl with Copic markers after stamping her in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink.  I sewed an actual bandana on this card to give it a country touch then used twine to 'rope' it all together.


Here is a close-up of the charms I used.  I cut them out with my Cuttlebug and then covered them in  Martha Stewart glitter.  I attached them to the twine using a pin I took off some clothes I bought at Martin & Osa.  Cute! 


On the inside of the card I added some more of this cute paper and stamped a shadow of the cowgirl.  I typed the sentiment on my computer and then printed it out.



These are the My Favorite Things stamps and dies I used for this card.

Pure Innocence Cutie

Hello everyone.  Happy Thursday!  Only one more day 'til the weekend.  Thought I would show you another bright card to help celebrate Spring.


I used My Favorite Things Pure Innocent 'Cute is what I do' stamp set for this adorable card.  The designer papers are all from Bella Blvd.- 'Socialite' and 'Lovey' lines, including her cute little polka dotted top. 


I colored her in with Copic markers and then added some felt mini rolled roses with gems in the center and some lacey ribbon for the finshing touches.  I think she is adorable!

First Day of Spring!

Here is a bright card full of Spring colors to celebrate the first day of Spring!  This is also my entry for My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  Below is a picture of the sketch.

 
All of the paper used is from Echo Park's Country Drive line.  These designer papers are beautiful and colorful with all of the brightness I wanted for this card. 


 I used My Favorite Things Vertical Greetings and Big Greetings stamps and the coordinating Vertical Greetings die as well as the Large Leafy Flourish die.  I added a few gemstones, some gingham ribbon and a few stitches for a little extra touch and decorated the inside of the card with the same gorgeous paper.


I am so happy it's Springtime.  I love all of the flowers blooming and the birds coming back for the warmer weather.  Enjoy!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

I wanted to go all out green for St. Patricks day and I think this card does it!  I love the sentiment and I hope it comes true for everyone.

 
All of the stamps and dies are Verve and the green paper is from a big pad in my stash.  I wanted to add some bling so lots of green crystals from Imaginisce and some Martha Stewart gold glitter. The felt in the background is from My Favorite Things.

 Hope you all find a little Irish in ya.  Have a Guiness and don't forget to wear your green so ya don't get pinched!

Welcome little one

Wow! I just recently returned from a 11 day trip to Hawaii (gorgeous!) and then Daylight Savings Time.  I did not think it would affect me but I am having a hard time adjusting.  Maybe it's just that I still want to be on vacation!

On my return, I had to catch up with friends and I found out that one of them is expecting her first baby in September!  So of course I had to create a welcome baby card for her and her husband.




I just love making baby cards.  Everything is so cute and tiny:)  All the papers used are from my older than the hills stash including the paper lace.  I do recognize a few Stampin Up! papers in there though. The sentiment is a rub-on from American Crafts 'Dear Lizzy' line as well as the ribbon and the twine is from House of Three.  I spray colored the paper lace with Tattered Angels spray mist and added some pearl gems and a metal tag from K and Co. for extra cuteness. The little onesies were cut with my cricut and the 'Straight from the Nest' cartridge.

I hope my friend has an easy pregnancy and I can't wait to welcome her new addition in September!
