21st Birthday!

DSCN8049

 My baby turns 21 today!!!!  Where did the time go???  She's somewhat of a little card shark, playing just about any card game you can think of with skill...so I've always said I was taking her to Las Vegas for her 21st birthday and TODAY is her birthday and we are on our way there!!!

Here is the birthday card I made for her:

DSCN8052

 

And here's one of the pages I made for her birthday present from our trip to Hawaii!  YES - she knows how lucky she is!!!  And I know how lucky I am to have her.  I'll try to share more pages and other card ideas with you while I'm waiting for her to get ready for our daily adventures - wink wink.

Bright & Cheerful Happy

DSCN7904

 Here's a bright and cheerful card for a beautiful Saturday morning!  LAYERED LETTERS ALPHABET stamp set is a great size to personalize your cards or spell out words to create fun cards like this one!  I received this card in a swap and just loved the layout and color combination.  

The CHERRY ON TOP WASHI TAPE is folded in half (so it's stuck to itself) and tied in with the WHITE BAKER'S TWINE.  What a GREAT idea to add that little splash of color.  The base is Watermelon Wonder with Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Watermelon Wonder inks.  The Crushed Curry "Birthday" stamp comes from the AGE AWARENESS stamp set - several different "birthday" stamps were used to get this fun background.

Butterflies for your broken leg?

DSCN7040

Here's a pretty card to share with you today - it was shared at my May Team Meeting.  Love the butterfly dies!!!!

DSCN7039

 

And here's another story....my BFF broke her leg!!!! EEEKKKKK!  She called me one day recently and told me that she had a fabulous idea - it was going to transform my stamping business!  WOW - couldn't wait to hear all about it -you know how much I LOVE my stamping business!!!  So this is before....

 

 

DSCN7980

And this is AFTER!!!  How stink in' cute is this????  Wanna know how we did it?  Mod Podge and die cut Designer Series Paper and Gold Glimmer Paper!!!!  I gooped the Mod Podge on her cast and then pushed the butterflies into it and painted over them again with a sponge brush.  One application - I didn't need to go back and paint over it after it was dry.  We did this a week ago and all the butterflies are still in place...the edges aren't popping up - no problems!  Funny thing...my BFF walked (opps - crutched!) into a local Mexican Restaurant last night and one of the customers saw her cast and said "are you friends with Kelly Acheson because that cast is FAMOUS!!!"  How funny is that???

The cast comes off next Tuesday - she's going to get a red or blue one and we are going to get to work decorating that beast for the 4th of July holiday!!!!  Can't wait to show you what's up next!

NEW Doodling Technique Card

DSCN7928

This is such a fun technique!!!  DOODLING....I love it!  My local stampers enjoyed making the blue card shown a couple photos below and they thought it was super fun too!

This card uses the NEW GARDEN IN BLOOM 2-step stamp set.  I have been having a blast with this set!!!  And the technique!  I used Pink Pirouette ink and card stock, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz inks with these bold images.

DSCN7926

Here's one of the cards from my Technique Tuesday class...it used the CRAZY ABOUT YOU stamp set with Soft Sky and Crumb Cake ink.  Thanks Connie Stewart for the fabulous swap card!!!

DSCN7145

Instructions:

  • stamp solid images in a couple different ink colors - light colors work best
  • start outlining and filling in your images with a Black Stampin' Write Marker
  • just keep going....doodle away
  • fill in the white spaces with triple dots - GIVE IT A TRY!

I wanted to share one of my FAVORITE new stamp sets with you - GARDEN IN BLOOM!!!  I love anything with "watercolor" art work and this one has soooo many possibilities.  You'll be seeing a lot more of it from me - I have an upcoming class in the works!!!!  I've made 9 different cards with this set already - I'm having a BLAST!!!

For this hop - our challenge was to use something new with something old...boy that was easy peasy lemon squeezy!!!!

SOMETHING NEW - Garden in Bloom Stamp Set

SOMETHING OLD - 2-1/2" Circle Punch

SOMETHING NEW - Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Paper

SOMETHING OLD -  the sponging technique

ENJOY!!!!
