Jawsome Birthday Card

Happy Friday!  I am glad we have made it to the end of the week :)  Today I am sharing a card that I created for one of my nephews who LOVES sharks!
The file I used came from Bird's Cards and the set was called Jawsome.  I used papers from DCWV's Beach House stack.  The front was embellished with black Nuvo Crystal Drops and Stormy Trendy Twine.
The inside opens to a pop-out shark!  He absolutely loved it!  The water part on the inside was not included in the file, I just hand cut and glued it on with Scotch Tacky glue.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Happy Birthday, Lesley!

Hello everyone!  Today the whole Trendy Twine DT and two past DT are surprising Lesley, the owner of Annie's Paper Boutique/Trendy Twine with a birthday post!  The most fun part is that it is a day early, so hopefully we pulled this off without her suspecting ;)  Head on over to the Trendy Twine blog to see all of the cards for her and to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  This is the card I sent to her!
I thought this card resembled a three tier birthday card, so I decided to make it using THIS tutorial.  On the bottom tier I decorated with a Pink Tag-ItAPB Smile stamp setCandy Cane Trendy Page Dot, and Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.  I adhered the tag with foam tape onto a GMD regal doily die cut.
On the second and third tiers, I added sentiments from the APB Choose Happy stamp set.
The finishing touch was adding several Frosty Sequins to the base of the card.
The fun part is that the top two tiers slid down into the bottom tier, so when it is sent in the mail, it looks like a single layer birthday cake :)  Pulling on the candles lets the other layers slide up.  The papers I used on this card are from DCWV's Confetti stack.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

White Rabbit Herald Card

Good morning! Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog. I created this whimsical White Rabbit card to share with you.
The stamp I used is Victorine Originals' Large White Rabbit Herald from Alice in Wonderland.  I stamped and heat embossed the image on white cardstock.  I colored in a few parts with red marker, but kept it very simple.
The rest of the card was built with papers from DCWV's Garden Charm and Jet Black stacks.  Some of the layers were cut with GMD stitched rectangle and GMD Floral Frame dies.  Embellishments include red crinkled seam binding, a metal key, and red adhesive pearls.
And now for some SUPER EXCITING news!  I submitted this card to Rubber Stamp Madness magazine and much to my surprise it was selected for publication!  It was such an honor to see that in print.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Good morning!  I have this sympathy card to share that uses the GMD Heartfelt Sympathy die and a GMD Floral Frame die.
I used patterned papers from DCWV's Blue China stack as well as white and black cardstock.  Adhesives I used were ATG, foam tape, and Scotch Tacky glue.  I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in black to embellish.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
