Thank you cards

I made a set of 8 of these Thank you cards for my oldest daughter for her Birthday. Her favorite color is green and she loves anything paisley. I used my paisley cuttlebug folder and the thank you stamp is from a hero art stamp set. I also embossed the flaps of the envelopes to go with the cards. My daughter is graduating from high school next month, so I thought these would come in handy.


Sweet Cupcake

A long time ago I found this tutorial to make these super cute cupcake cards. You should check out her Blog she has tons of different card ideas. I used scraps for the frosting and it had a white core so I sanded the pieces and inked the edges. I used my scor-pal on the cake part, to make it look like a cupcake liner. The bread tab is a quickutz die. The sweet saying stamp is from a Stampin' Up set. The finished size is 6 x 6.

Fab Friday Cuttlebug Challenge

I found this neat challenge board for using your cuttlebug. Here is their sketch for this Friday, I pulled out a stamp I got awhile back and put it to use. I used the tiny mosaic CB folder. I think this guy and the saying are so funny. I don't really have any one to send it too, but I'm sure I will someday.

Flower Pot Cards

I saw the cutest flower pot card on my friend Heidi's blog, she had found the directions on this blog.
This is my version of this really cute and easy card. I used some hydrangea type flowers for one pot and a sizzix die & cuttlebug dots folder for the other. I chalked, paper pierced, inked and only used supplies I had! Yeah! The paper I used for the pots already looked like marble, so that was an added bonus. I ended up making 26 of them in the end, some for one swap and the rest for my monthly card club. I left them blank inside I thought some might want to say different things and there is limited space. Best of all they fit in a A2 envelope!

Have a swingin' time

I know these Changito Monkeys have been around awhile but I just can't get enough of them. I got my first one from a secret sister, and have been hooked ever since. I used the mojo layout from 2 weeks ago for this card. If you haven't visited the Monday Mojo site yet, it is a must see! Every Monday, they have a different card sketch for you to try and they have a contest every so often, for prizes.
