Superbella!

July 15, 2008 - 1:37pm

Here's a little bella card I made. This is the first time I had used this image, but thought I would give it a try. I used a bunch of Crystal Effects on this card, too. It's on all the dots again (because I loved how it looked) and on her top, skirt and cape so they look kind of like shiny super hero material! Then I added gold glitter to her boots and some gold ribbon. I also added a few black eyelets for a little something more. I think it turned out really cute!

I also have to tell you that I haven't made anything crafty in quite some time. I just haven't felt up for it. I know that is shocking, but now that I have a job, there are other things I want to do when I get home. I craft when I need to make something not because I don't have anything else to do. So my priorities are different now. Therefore, the entries here will probably be a bit inconsistent. But I will continue to post things as I make them and I am sure I will have days where I just can't stop making stuff! So for now, check back or add me to a list that tells you when I post something. Have a great day!

Another Graduation Card

July 11, 2008 - 8:36am

This is another graduation card I made recently. I made one with the same colors for the other one which was for my cousin. This one was for a neighbor and no, they don't go to the same school. :) I also tried to make this one a little more fitting for a guy (since our neighbor is a guy). This means I did without glitter and ribbon! I did add some eyelets and mounted the hats on dimensional tape. I think it turned out quite well! Enjoy!

This is a lovely card from my online buddy, Jen. She does such amazing work and if you haven't checked out her stuff yet, you must! She is great! And Jen is such a sweet person on top of it all! Jen sent me this card as a congratulations on my new job. And I just love what she did with the card. And like I mentioned yesterday, she inspired a couple cards of mine! Thank you so much, Jen, for this thoughtful and beautiful card!

Lanterns

July 8, 2008 - 8:19am

This image is from A*Muse and I thought it was such a cute image. I colored them in and added glitter over the top of them. I also put a brad at the end of each side of the string. This made it look like it was holding them on and I thought it was so cute! I made a scallop edge along the green paper and added a dot of glitter in the center and then tied on a little ribbon. And this layout was inspired by a card Jen sent me that I will try to remember to show you tomorrow!

I also tried stamping two next to each other to see how they would look, and they look like a chain of lanterns. Just like I had hoped they would look. So I will have to try doing that sometime! Enjoy!

This was a little card I threw together for the mere fact that I hadn't used this image yet. I don't have this stamp and I don't drink coffee, so I probably won't ever get the stamp, but I think it's cute for a friend. I really just colored this image and attached it to the card and added a ribbon. Then I added Crystal Effects to all of the dots on the card back ground. It looks so cool in person because they each shine a bit. There is also some Crystal Effects on the flower in the middle of the table and glitter on the white shirt. Enjoy!

Happy 4th of July!

July 4, 2008 - 7:00am

Happy 4th of July! I haven't made anything that is very patriotic lately, so I just thought I would wish everyone a happy and safe 4th! I am extremely excited to have a 3 day weekend! Too bad fireworks aren't legal here! They are so much fun! I guess I'll just have to go watch some tonight and "ooh" and "ahh" over them! :)

Green Placemat Purse

This is the most recent placemat purse I have made. This one was for a gift. And I was given the instructions of these colors! (The recipient asked me to make her one!) I thought the colors looked really good together and and I was so pleased with how it turned out. Enjoy!

Cocktails Anyone?

July 2, 2008 - 11:00am

This stamp cracked me up! I made this silly card for my brother for his birthday. He got a good laugh out of it! I didn't do anything real special on this card. I wanted to stick with red, orange and yellow because I thought it would look nice with the birds. And I am pleased with how turned out! I think they are fun for a birthday ad also worked well for a guy card. My brother also mentioned that he liked the eyelets! I guess guys do appreciate the hardware decorations we add! That's always good to know! Enjoy!

Leaves

July 1, 2008 - 8:25pm

These cards were made with the clear stamp set I got from Target that I mentioned not too long ago. There are so many possibilities with this set. And I love that it's clear so I know where I am placing things. I think I will need a bit more practice getting it to look the way I want, but I was quite happy overall with the turnout of these cards. I also used a white strip of paper which was embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder to add a little dimension. Of course, I had to add glitter as well, so there are a bunch of little green dots mixed in with the leaves. I think next time I will make them red or something to look like buds or berries! Enjoy!

Fun Cosmo Bella

June 29, 2008 - 8:23am

This is the birthday card that I made for my brother's girlfriend. She loves green and it was her 21st! So I had to do something related to drinking. I gave Bella a green shirt and brown hair to look just like Katie. Then I made the cocktail pink like the girls from Sex and the City would drink! :) (And amusingly...Katie ordered a cosmo!) There's also glitter on the white flowers to add a little more "bling"! Enjoy!
