My son's girlfriend asked me to make a card for her mom's birthday. The only specifications were she loves Tweety Bird. So I came up with this. I had to make two Tweety Bird cards since my daughter loves Tweety Bird too. Background is DCWV from the Glittered All dressed up stack. Tweety got glitter glued and the cake has stickles in scattered straw. The image was matted on black cardstock and dimensionals were added for depth. The corner treatments were cut with storybook cartridge and dimensionals were added as well.
This was a card I made for my friends birthday September 11. Card size is 6.5"5". For the background I used collage paper from Provo Craft from the paper passport line. The scalloped rectangle was cut at 4" using the storybook cartridge. Paper is from Recollections butterfly wings collection. Pooh is a digital stamp from coloring-book.info also free. The image was colored with sharpie markers and heat set so it wouldn't bleed. The flowers are from Prima 's botanical mix. Pooh's hat as well as the cake have been glitter glued. The sprigs are a branch punch by Martha Stewart. I used pearls around the scalloped square as well as, for the flower centers. The bottom border is the Drippy Goo punch by Martha Stewart found it at Michael's.
A close family friend asked me to make this card for my daughter, Ebony's 16th birthday. It is late thus it is a belated card. Card size is 6.5"x5". Cardstock used is DCWV Glittered All dressed up stack in 8x8 sheets. The scallop circles are cut at 4" large one and 2.5" the two smaller ones using Best Occasion cardstock in black from Walmart. The regular circles are cut at 3.75" and 2.25" with pink cardstock from Recollections butterfly wings collection. The stamp is digital from coloring-book.info. Yes girls, it is free! I used Sharpie ultra fine point markers to color the image. To keep the image from bleeding, after printing, I heat set it with my heat gun and again after coloring. Tweety as well as the cake got glitter glue added to them. It was matted on black cardstock and dimensionals were at for depth. The ribbon is Black, White, POP from the celebrate it collection picked up at Michael's. It was on sale regularly $3.99 got it for $1.00. I almost forgot about the waves to the left over the two circles cut with the fiskas wavy scissors.
I made this purse using the TBBM cricut cartridge. I think it is cut at 5.5". However, I used a12x12 piece of card stock on the fit to page option. Sorry, I don't remember what line the paper is from. I also used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch and punched out butterflies from the scraps of paper left over from the purse. I used a flower brad and regular brad from the Paper Studio line. The handle is made with ribbon picked up at Michael's.
Welcome everyone, My name is Mary and I am a mother of three: Darius 20, Ebony 18, and Kaleel 8. I am married to a wonderful man who is my best friend. I have been scrapbooking for 9 years and just recently got into card making after making about 20 christmas cards and my friends and family thought I had bought them. What an honor it was that they thought my cards looked that good. I hope to inspire someone else though my crafts and I hope you enjoy what you see. Please leave me comments if you wish.
