Best Mom Ever


I'm sure there will be people who will try to argue with me, they may try to say that their mother is, but I know, without a doubt, I have the Best Mom Ever!

I created this card in honor of my Mom.







I used A2 BORDER EDGE CARD FLOWERS by Lori Whitlock Design ID #78985 from the Silhouette store for my card base. 

The stamp set is a Julie Nutting .





I created the sentiment on my computer.




Supplies used: card stock - white, pink; patterned papers from Infused collection by Authentique; stamp from Mama's Day by Julie Nutting; cut files from Silhouette Studio; Copic markers; sequins - my stash; Pop Dots.


Have a beautiful day!

Friday is Earth Day this year.

Another Birthday?


Do you know someone who has a milestone birthday coming up?

If so, I found an awesome card on Pinterest that perfectly fits the bill. Of course I had to case it.

I used a cute Birthday Cake cut file by Miss Kate Cuttables for my card.
I cut out extra candles and flames, after first enlarging the flames.





For the singed corner I lit a match and carefully burned the corner of the card, then I inked it up with some brown ink.

The sentiment was created on my computer in my Print Shop Program.





Supplies Used: card stock - white, 2 shades of brown, 2 shades of blue; lime green, red, yellow, orange; cut file by Miss Kate Cuttables; Print Shop; matches; brown ink.

Die Cuttin' Divas Book Challenge




Do you like to read?

Other than curling up with a good book, there is hardly anything better than crafting! Am I right?

We are combining the two over at Die Cuttin' Divas to celebrate Library Day.

This week our challenge is to create something with a book




.









I chose to use a page from an old childhood book I had that had completely fallen apart. Cover off, pages ripped, etc.

I found a clipart image of Rapunzel on the internet. I saved it to my desktop and then opened it with my Silhouette program. Using the trace tool, I traced the image so I could cut it out with my machine.







I created the sentiment in my Print Shop program because, lets face it, sometimes you just don't have the right stamp :)





Supplies used: card stock -vanilla, black, pink; page from a childhood book;  clipart image from the internet; Framelets - Sizzix; rhinestones - Kaiser Craft



Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.


Hope to see you playing along with us!!!!
