Card no. 116 – A gift for Ms. Usher & a special Saturday for my sweet Hannah

Happy Sunday everyone!!! 
My sweet Hannah turned 2 yesterday, so we had a fantastic Tea Party planned for her. 
Everything went well – I even made my very first birthday cake! 5 layers, each different shade of pink …  well, it did have a “loopsy” side … but it tasted wonderful 🙂
I even made a birthday t-shirt using Silhouette – I was so happy with the results.
And here is my sweet birthday girl…

Well, I also made a special Christmas gift for Lana’s teacher on Friday, because it was the last day of school before the Winter vacation. I made her Grapefruit Bath salts with vitamin E. It smelled so yummy…

Here is the whole package:
And here is the card:

Base Cardstock is Bazzill from Michael’s, DPs are from Graphics 45 (the Magic of Oz Collection) and Making Memories (Paper Reverie – Sienne Floral).
The super cute image is from Whiff of Joy, colored with ProMarkers & Copics, and so is the sentiment. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections by Michael’s. The rhinestones are from JoAnn.
The border punch is Martha Stewart and Spellbiners used are Labels no. 10 and Lacy Circles.

Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy …

Card no. 115 – Merry Christmas – Whiff of Joy Angel

Oh, such a busy busy week (and weekend). I have been working a lot, which is great, but I don’t get much of my “mommy” playtime! I also have been moving furniture this weekend as I have decided to move my craft corner to my bedroom (my hubby wasn’t thrilled), but both my girls would take and misplace “my” stuff and oh, they would snatch my markers and Hannah (will turn 2 this Saturday) would color the walls, etc. …. just not fun.  Anyways, I set up my workstation in the bedroom and when we have a huuuuge house (one day) I will have my own whole room just for crafting …. 
OK. Enough blabling ….
Here is a first quarter of a order placed after our Fundraiser back on December 6th.  The order was 12 Christmas cards … I have already sent them, but haven’t had a chance to post them.
This is a Criss-cross card, using a gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamp from last year’s Christmas collection, colored with Promarkers and Copics. I added Stickles and Spica Copics.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Cardstock is Bazzill from Michaels and DP is … shoot! I can’t think of the name right now … sorry.
Rhinestones are from JoAnn, ribbon is Papertey Ink, border is punched with EK Success border punch. I aged the edges with Tim Holtz’s Distress Inks (Old Paper, Tea Dye, Antique Linen).
The inside sentiment stamp is a Inkadinkado stamp from several years ago.

Card no. 114 – Happy Birthday my Beautiful Friend!

Happy Thursday Everyone!
I have a suuuper busy week – but I love being busy … so (((Yay!))) for me.
I have managed to squeeze in a bit of crafty time and made this little cutie for Lana’s sweet little friend.
The image is by Tickled Pink Stamps – the sweet Lil’ Pinkette Coraline.
She is colored with Copics & ProMarkers.
I also added Stickles (Stardust, Diamond) to the image.
The Front View

The papers I used are pretty old (I had them FORever) and I have no idea where I’ve got them or who they are made by. The cardstock is from Michael’s – Bazzill Basics I have used a ribbon from JoAnn, a bunch of beautiful flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts, Kaiserkraft rhinestones.
I made a little pin using beads. Super easy-peasy!
The Image Detail (sorry, a little blurry)

The inside is very plain & easy – I was in a hurry to make this card and I think I made it in about an hour, which is few days less than usually.
I taped Coraline and inked just the cake and used is as a little complimentary stamp on the inside.
The Inside View
The words used are from one of those “Wordsy” sets from Hobby Lobby.
That’s it from me for today!
Hope you’re all are having a fabulous week!

Inspired … using Silhouette

I have always loved the simple designs and I just adore Papertey Ink.  So, when they came out with the fabulous new collection, I was inspired.
I absolutely adore the new Cover Plate – Quatrefoil and decided to make my own … using my Silhouette. Oh, boy! Quite the job, I tell ya! But anywhoo…. I am done.
And, I am so happy with the results!
So from this (found it using Google Image search  – keyword “quatrefoil”):
I made this:
And because I do square cards (most of the time), I decided to make it square-ish.
A little close-up:
Silhouette ROCKS!!!!
If interested in tutorial – I may post video-tutorial later …. let me know!
Have an awesome day!
Hugs,
