Sweet Bunny Fun Fold Card For Second Birthday

Hello Everyone,
I found a really cool fun fold design in a magazine and used that to make this sweet bunny birthday card. 

You can see the folds in this picture.  This design is a cross between an easel and a step card. 

The bunny stamp is from Stampin' Up and colored with copic markers. 
I also added some die cut balloons.  Turned out pretty cute for a little cutie who turned two last month. 

So glad you stopped by today.  Hope your day is so nice that you have plenty of time to make cards!

Milestone Birthday: 80 Years Young

Hello Everyone,
Today's card is to celebrate my Mother's 80th birthday!  She is now 80 years young! 
I used Stampin' Up stamps and dies for the tea cup and flowers.  I added sheer ribbon, die cut swirls, and a paper doily.  The dark teal background is dry embossed.

The tea cup and flowers and colored with Copic makers.

Inside: Sentiment stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.

Mom had a nice birthday.  We all went out for dinner.  And, then my nephew also took her out for lunch on another day as he and his wife couldn't make the dinner get together.  So, very fun.

I will be back next time with another milestone birthday---Two years old!  See you then.

Valentine's Day Card: Part 3

Hello Everyone,
Part 3 of my Valentine's is the card I made for my husband.  I used a stamp from Technique Junkies as the main focal point.

I paired this stamped heart with a plaid background paper.  I added some stamped swirls and distressed the edges with ink.  Finished off the card with a polka dot ribbon.

Also added some metal embellishments on the side.

Inside of card:

I hope you had some fun making a few Valentine's Day Cards.  I send them out to friends and family.  I think it is fun to share the love.   I just don't make the too mushy. LOL 
See you next time for an Eightieth Birthday Card.

Valentine's Day Cards: Part 2

Hello Friends,
Back today with the second Valentine's Day Card.  This card uses short pieces of ribbon for embellishment.  Great project to use up all those ribbon scraps. 

I used a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly on this card too.  See part 1 here
I cut short pieces of ribbon and glued them down.  I added the red ribbon over top as the banner stringer.

This card was fun to make.  I just love using ribbon on my projects.  And, this was a different way to incorporate ribbon.

Next post I will share the card I made for my husband.  See you then.

Valentine's Day Cards: Part 1

Hello Everyone! 
It seems to be that time of year again....Time for Valentine's Day cards.  I made a few this year.  Already sent them out to friends and family.  Today, I will share one of the cards.

I used a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly and some heart themed papers on this card.  I finished it off with a pretty bow. 

This was an easy card that went together quickly.  So, pretty fun to make.  Still loving all my My Sentiment Exactly stamps. 

Check back in a few days for the second card.  I made a total of 3 different designs on 9 cards. 
Have a sweet day!
