Happy Bird-Day Card

During my down time from craft fairs and getting fed up with the snow on the ground, I try and experiment with different images and ideas that I don't typically use.  I like to expand my knowledge.  Sometimes they work out and I love them and that's the only thing I make for months at a time, other times, they never even make it to a final product because I get frustrated and throw the whole project away.  hahah
This card was something out of my norm.  The bird is a cut out with many different pieces. I used different types of paper as well plus the twine for the balloons.  

I do see a few things on this one I would have done differently had I known but all in all, I kinda like this little birdie.

total pieces:
13 paper pieces
1 gem
2 twine pieces

Simple Silhouette Birthday Card

I've had this cut out saved in my silhouette library for quite some time and I've liked it but I guess because it's not just a standard card, I was a little intimated by it.
After I got everything cut out, I was excited to see how easy it was to put together and see the final outcome.

I thought it would be fun to start including how many pieces are on each card.  This one has 10 pieces that were put together to make one image.

Of course I added some hand stitching and glitter pens to add fun to it.

cups cups and more cups

This order was fun.  I got a request from a gal at work asking if I could make her some cups to give out as gifts.  She gave me a list of initials she wanted and asked that only her's had purple polka dots and the others could be bright colors.
I really liked how they turned out and everyone she gave them too enjoyed them as well.

Who's Birthday is it...

This fun card was a special request.
my guidelines were, lavender, mint, and owls.... hmmmm.
It took some creating a special card base and finding an image I can make cartoon-y with out of the box colors.  I added some gems of course. 
and bamo - it was a hit!!!

Go Hawks

This was a fun card to make.  

I make the birthday cards for our team at work and we have one guy out of all 15 of us women.  Poor guy!!! haha.
Of course you can't add glitter and gems to a man's birthday card so it leaves me a little out of my zone.
Luckily, he is a HUGE Seahawks fan.  I did a reverse cut on the happy Birthday letters and cut out the Seahawks logo.
all of it was applied using pop dots to make the head and the happy birthday stand off of the card, you can see a bit of that in the second image.

Made me laugh when he sent an e-mail out to our team saying he got a kick a** card for his birthday.

Custom Cutting Boards

I wanted to share the variety of different boards I've been doing.  Some are super plain and others have quite a bit of detail.  Each and everyone has a different meaning to the person who receives it which makes it so much more fun to create these.

~ Enjoy!~

Happy Birthday Card

I had fun with this image.  
I created this card for a friend at work using, you guessed it, Jaded Blossom stamps and die cuts.

The glittery polka dot paper added a nice accent to the cupcake girl.
Each cupcake was topped off with a pink gem and the girl adhered with pop dots to make her stand off the card.
