Birthday Blooper

The other day I was going through my cards and I realized that I gave my daughter the wrong card for her birthday, lol.  I had made this one with a daughter sentiment on it that I completely forgot about.  It’s okay, though, because I like the one I gave her better :-)

I cut the cupcake from a digital stamp I had downloaded as a freebie and colored it with my copics.  The swirls were cut individually and popped up with pop dots, each a little higher than the next.  The “pearls” were made with some White Opal Liquid Pearls.  The paper is just some loose scraps I had on hand. I’m not sure which company it’s from.





That’s it for another day.  Friday Freebie day tomorrow so don’t forget to come back and check it out.  Until then …

Keep on keepin’ on,

I made a card for my daughter’s birthday.  She turned 21 this week.  I can’t believe how fast those years have gone by.  This is another card from the One Sheet Wonder series of cards I made.

Lazy Days Of Summer…

Anybody else here sick of winter?  I know I am!!  I am so ready for the warmer weather to melt all this snow and the sunshine to brighten my day.  With that in mind, I created this card.  I have had this cute little guy sitting in my stash for quite a while but have never found just the perfect time to use him.  And then I came across the “this is life” tab element and I knew the two of them would fit together perfectly.

I used one of my embossing folders and rubbed my ink pad over the embossing folder before embossing it for a cool two-toned effect.

The bear is colored with my copics and cut out with my Cameo.  I used a One Sheet Wonder layout to make this card.  If you don’t know what that is, stay tuned because I will be doing a whole series on them.





Enjoy your day and remember…

Keep on keepin’ on
