Under the Sea Baby Accordion Card

I have been asked to make several cards in the past, but this is a first, I was asked to make a baby card with a shark theme. Hmmmmm I’ve never really thought of a shark theme for a baby card. I was sent a couple of photos of babies room and sure enough it had a shark/ocean theme (there was also a picture of a whale 🐳) sooooooo this is what I came up with, and I have to say it turned out pretty cute.

Sailing Away Birthday Card ⛵️

Last month I had a card that demonstrated how to create an image with a silhouette stamp that didn’t look like I used a silhouette stamp, and today I am creating an image using a line stamp and making it look like a silhouette stamp, this particular card is a great masculine card.

Throwback Thursday- Punch art Sponge Bob card

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea………..  So this is a card that I made for my son, back in the day when Sponge Bob pretty much played on a loop at my house. It is not my original idea and back in the day (2010ish)  if you googled “Sponge Bob punch art card” you would find dozens of cards very similar to mine, but this is the version that I made.

K.I.S.S. Thank You card

So, When it comes to making cards I am usually my own worst enemy, most cards I make are really time-consuming and I am all about the wow factor and all the little details, on average I spend 2-6 hours on most cards, which isn’t a bad thing except I work full time, and am usually fairly busy doing mom things sooo needless to say I don’t get many cards done in a week. I decided I was going to challenge myself to make at least one simple card a week and I am calling it a K.I.S.S. card (Keep it Simple Stupid), now when I say challenge myself it is a challenge as I am kind of the crazy card lady who has to make  pop-up, sparkly, multi-layered, shaker cards with glitter and 3 types of adhesive 😳, so I find it difficult when I try to scale it back, but I did, I gave myself 30 minutes to make a card but tonights card only took me 20 minutes. 😊 yay me.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair…..

I am sooooooo excited about this card, it was requested by a friend for her niece who loves Rapunzel and pop-up storybooks and her Birthday Party colours will be pink and sparkles (Sparkles is a colour right?) so this card idea pretty much planned itself. It was a lot of work and there is a lot of detail so hopefully, I don’t miss anything in my directions.

Happy “Pastel” Birthday

I’ve got a pretty blingy card today, it was a 17th Birthday card for my daughter and I wanted to reflect her sparkly personality 🙂 I used a lot of pastel colours, glitter paper, and blingy little gems. Oh, and how can I forgot I added a pop up 17 and a shaker element on the front.
