Look who's 40!

Hubby just turned 40 and he doesn't like the attention that he's been getting lately. We have a surprise birthday party for him and here is the card I made for him.
Our friend e-mailed me a picture of a cake like this, and since I'm no BAKER I made a card instead.

This is the challenge for the Cal-Gals meeting "Snowman"

I used MSE snowman stamp and covered him with liquid applique. Heated then colored with my copic.
I used colored foils for the shinny background and ran it through my cuttlebug, and Martha stewart snowflake punch

Thanks for bloggin by!

No time to play

Sorry for the lack of post lately. Now that I'm back to work and my 2 girls in pre-school...I have no time to play!!

But my girls and our dog are sure having lots of play time.

Christmas Cheers

LOL... I can't stop with this embroidery on paper! I have four to share with you and I'm afraid there's more to come.

Paper~bazzill/american craft

Tools~embroidery on paper/ Martha Stewart border punch/cuttlebug embossing folder

Ink~dew drop brilliance


I like how I did the ribbon here (it's tooo thick from all the folding and it's not quite sticking on the card)

Okay... so even I was getting tiered of the multicolor thread! The silver one makes more christmasee I think.
Paper~bazzill/My minds eye
Tools~embroidery on paper/spellbinders
Other~ribbon/sakura gel pens/rub ons

So... then I thought... how about just white? Very simple but elegant.

Tools~embroidery on paper/spellbinders/Martha's snowflake punch

Other~ribbon/rub ons/brad

How about some bling-bling? Adding the beads was a good idea...but it was too hard to pull the ribbon with out messing up the fibers.
Paper~bazzill/my minds eye

Tools~spellbinders scalloped circle and circle/Martha's tree punch and snowflake


Thanks for bloggin' by and hope you're enjoying your weekend!

Hello Miss Magnolia

Are you sick of Miss Magnolia yet? I'm not!! Give the girl a break.. I have to practice with my copic and she is so much fun to color. LOL..I guess I could use a different image eh?

Paper~ Bazzil/ Stampin up
Tools~ Spellbinders scalloped circle/ Martha Steward border punch
Stamps~ Magnolia
Ink~ Copic markers
Other~ Pearl liquid/ Ribbon/ Sakura gel pen

My image was too long for the spellbinders scalloped circle so I just used half of it to do the top part. I set my spellbinder scalloped circle on the stamped image then the tan mat under the die to the part that I didn't want cut. ( I cut with my die facing down so I can have my image centered. A plate/B plate (cutting)/Paper/Die (face down)/C plate. You don't have to run it through all the way, just to the part where you want to cut (actually... you CAN'T run it through all the way because it's too thick with the tan mat along with the C plate.)
Paper~ Stampin up/Bazzil/Vellum

Tools~ Cuttle bug embossing folder/ Spellbinders circle/ Cricut

Stamps~ Magnolia/ Stampin up

Ink~ Copic Markers/Dew Drop brilliance

Other~ compressor

The flowers around the image was done by my cricut machine.

Hope you are having a happy bloggin day! TTFN
