Butterfly Wishes

Just popping in to share another quick card.  I keft this one really CAS.  
I love this paper and thought I'd compliment it with some PaperTrey Ink Happy Trails butterflies.  Also, I used a sentiment from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.
For the blue butterfly, I used the coordinating die to cut out 3 butterflies.  I then stitched them all together down the center to give it dimension.  I love the look it added!

Birthday Bug

Just a cute Paper Smooches Giddy Bugs card :)  I love them so!
Normally the polka-dots coming thru the black ink would drive me nuts but I love it on this little bee!  Coordinating stripes!

Girly & Gutsy

Ahhhh... Yet again I swoon over this weeks Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World, Girly & Gutsy.   Isn't it beautiful?

Here's what I came up with.

I combine the dies & sentiment from PaperTrey Ink's Happy Trails set with My Cute Stamps Ashley's Blossoms for the birdcage and floral stamp to create the patterned paper at the bottom.

Robot beep beep Birthday

I've got a few birthday coming up and thought I'd use this month's Hero Arts challenge Creatures & Cards for Kids to get me going.  

 This card is for my son's friend's 4th birthday, whose party is at the end of this month.  Nick, no peeking!  

I went online and found the Take Me To Your Leader digital set at twopeas (here).  Oh man is it ever stinkin' cute.  

This summer has been full of weddings and a huge trend I've been noticing is that people are having photo booths to let their guests break loose, get a little crazy and have some fun.  Such a great idea!  I thought I'd recreate it here for this birthday scene and used this filmstrip

I also added some pennants from Paper Smooches Hang Ups set to the background to add some more color. I colored everything in with Copics and added some additional stamping to the robots to give them a light pattern.  Also, I added some stickles to the cupcake to make it extra yummy. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm loving the new My Cute Stamps set, Ahoy!  I have big plans for it!  Big plans, now I just have to find time to execute them...

Something fun to share!

Gone Campin'

Just popping in to share a quick card.  

I adore the new Market Street Stamps set, Gone Camping.  That mosquito- eek!  So cute!  I can't wait to use him, along with that clever coordinating sentiment.  

Anyways, I paired it up with a Paper Smooches sentiment that I was able to curve to match the camping trailer. 

Also, the colors of this card fall right in line with the Embellish color challenge.  

After finishing it, I realized it was supposed to be colored, but I had already finished my card and wasn't going to start over!  Gotta learn to read the directions first!  

Thanks for stopping by!
