MIni Envelope and Card

Here's the second card I cut from the svg file at Clips and Cuts. Vicky has a cool video on her blog showing how to make these little cards and envelopes. I think this envelope is my favorite! The dazzel on the front of the card is from Paper Wishes

Mini Cards & Envelopes

Here's the first envelope and card I made from Vicky's svg file at her Clips and Cuts blog, I just loved her idea for the mini's. I don't have a Crop a Dile so found it a little more challenging to get the eyelets in correctly.

Butterfly Challenge

This was done for a challenge at my Yahoo Group, Crafty Card Creators, where you were to use a butterfly as the focal point in your card. I cut the top butterfly from the paper and the bottom is from a set I got at Michaels.

Bottom of My Toes

Isn't she just the cutest little caterpillar you've ever seen? I saw this done on A Place For My Cards and just loved the idea. This is cut from the Walk in My Garden cart for my Cricut. I used an EK Success border punch for the circles on the inside sentiment.

Lady Bug, lady bug

This is cut from the cart Walk in My Garden. Isn't she a doll, or lady bug, lol. The background paper is from an 8x8 pad from Me & My Big Ideas called Sunshine. Not sure where I got the inside quote from.

Grandkids Valentines

I used Martha Stewart's Holidays collection of Valentine papers for the girls valentines and The Lift Off Clear Stamps from We R Memory Keepers stamps for Eddies Rocket Ship Valentine.  The svg file for the rocketship came from The Frugal Crafter.  I made enough of these the kids could take one to school for everyone in their class.

Heart Word Swap

Each month at our Yahoo group, Crafty Card Creators, I'm in charge of picking a word that we will all use on our card somewhere for the Word Challenge Swap. This month the word was heart.

 I chose a free digital stamp from Tracey Malnofski called Audrey with Hearts, isn't she a doll? I colored her with Marvy markers, added a little glitter around her and used just a touch of glossy accents on the small hearts.

 I used the EK Success border punch for the hearts down the side of the glitter pink paper which is from the Martha Stewart Holidays Collection (all Valentiene paper and lovely). I used a font I had in my stash called Crushed Out Girl, have to use this more often I really like the look of it. Ribbon is cheap stuff from Michaels but I like it because it ties great and doesn't create much bulk for the cards.

It Doesn't Pay...

Inside reads: 'to ruffle my feathers!'

This is a digital freebie stamp from Lost in Paper Scraps blog called bird legs, don't ya just love her??? I had her all painted and then decided she just had to have these feathers and they, besides those lovely legs, just make her. The circles on the edge are an EK Success border punch. Scalloped rectangle cut out on my Cricut, colored with Marvey Markers with Glossy Accents and glitter added. Papers are DCWV

Love Angel

I've had this little angel cut from an old greeting card forever. I found her again when we brought the Christmas boxes in to decorate. This morning while blog hopping I found inspiration for a card and unfortunately I can't remember the blog, perhaps it will come to me later. I used my seagull corner punch and slid the one paper into it, then foam mounted the little angel atop. Isn't she adorable? See, you should never throw those old cards away!!! This would be perfect for Valentines but I'm actually using it for a Wedding card. The inside reads --- Wishing you a lifetime of love, romance and joy. This is a MSE rub on, love them!  The love Rhinestones are from Michaels wedding section.
