Hippo Birdie Two Ewe

I always loved this Boynton version of the Hippo Birdie birthday song.  I printed it on cardstock, heat embossed with some silver and placed on some gray chevron paper.  A little bow was placed to make it look complete.

Caroling Mice

I was dying to use the Penny Black Slapstick  Christmas Caroling Trio Mice stamp. I used a basic card and a small swatch of musical paper from some Hopscotch double-sided paper.  The sentiment stamp is from inkadinkado Christmas characters set.

There's no business like Snow Business...

OK, early for Christmas cards, but I figured I'd do a few every couple weeks just so there's no last minute panic in December. I used my new Inkadinkado Christmas Character stamp set, Snowman.  Stamped and heat embossed and colored him in with some pencils. After cutting out the circle, I then heat embossed the edges.  I used some scrap cardstock for the background and embossed with swirls.

Happy Birthday

I made this card for a random birthday.  I actually started the card a month ago, but didn't like where it was going so I stopped.  I finally found the perfect motif for the center.  The top is basic white card stock embossed with the Happy Birthday folder for the cuttlebug and the bottom is red cardstock with the swirl frame.  I used some ribbon to separate the two sections and found the cake on my Hallmark card program.  I used the nestabilities circle die to cut it out and a dimensional circle to make it pop a bit

I made this card to congratulate my niece on choosing a college.  She had her choice of colleges, so a "Congrats on your acceptance" wasn't really applicable.  I used some scraps and I downloaded and printed the school logo to use on the pendant.  I used the script embossing folder for the main card and some silver cord I had from a previous project.  I heat embossed the edges of the sentiment for a little extra sparkle.

Ice Cream time!

My friend just had a tonsillectomy and this was the Get Well card I chose to make.  I found a line drawing of an ice cream cone on google and used it for a pattern.  I am horrible at tracing/cutting, but I gave it a shot.  I really, really like how the sugar cone turned out.  I just used my score pad and scored lines every 1/8".  I embossed the ice cream with the D'Vine swirls folder.  The chevron paper was from Colorbok Hopscotch double-sided premium paper and I just cut out a square and scored a small frame.

I have mentioned (at least on my old blog ) that my handwriting is horrible and I don't have many sentiment stamps, so I used my Hallmark greeting card program to print the sentiments on plain paper.  I taped the front sentiment to a scrap pice of cardstock and ran it through the cuttlebug with a small circle nestabilities die.

Father's Day

I got my inspiration for this card again from pinterest : Shirt Card 
Next time, I will use plain paper for the shirt instead of cardstock, but the pattern I wanted was on the thicker paper (Old World Matte cardstock),  I just used the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder and some scrap stock to make a little beachy scene and some Stickers for the sentiment, 

Brother's Birthday Card

For my brother's birthday this year, I didn't want to use my cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder.  I wanted something a little different.  I saw this post on pinterest: Rounded corner measurements and thought it would be perfect.  She used 3 different hues, but I just used two because it looked better for this card.  I added the "brother" panel on the front and that and the inside sentiment were printed on plain paper from my Hallmark greeting card program. The paper is from Colorbok, Hopscotch Premium doublesided papers.***

Easter Card

I made this card with some Easter Paper from Michael's that was on sale for $1.99.  Couldn't find any Easter or Bunny stamps at all, so I just cut out some motifs from the paper.

The morons deleted my blog

So the idiots at Blogger deleted my blog because they thought I was spam.  oooookkkaaay.  So here I go again.  There will be several posts today since I will be reposting past blogs where I have photos.

I'm not sure where the problem was.  I think it may have been because I linked to the sites where you could purchase supplies.  I will not do that anymore, but if you need to know where to get anything I used, just ask and I'll tell you :D
