Christmas: Dasher in Red



I am trying to make one Christmas card per week. I am a wee bit behind. The stamps, corner punch, and embossing folder are all Stampin' Up.

The bling on the antlers is the "little extra" that makes the card.

Birthday: Play and Dance



This card fell together easily, even though I had to alter my original plan. The sun and moon stamps are Stampin' Up. The sentiment is Inkadinkadoo. I used versamark and gold embossing for the sun and moon.
The sentiment is on dimensionals.

Birthday: Delight in Life



My last card went together in minutes, following the plan in my head. This one didn't! I must have jinxed myself...

The stamps are Stampin' Up; the flower is a two-step stamp. The picture doesn't show the two colors of purple for the petal. The buttons are a different decorative touch for me.

Fishing Mouse: Birthday Card for My Dad



My dad is the world's best and most dedicated fisherman; this is his birthday card. When I found the stamp at a garage sale this summer, and knew exactly how I would make this card. I stamped the image, colored with colored pencils, layered a bit, and was done. It went together quickly and easily. Not all of my cards are finished as planned.

Mini Take Out Boxes: St. Patrick's Day



This was such a fun project! I have a mini take out box cutting die from Lifestyle Crafts. The box is pretty small; two Andes mints and one mini 3 Musketeer filled the box. I used shamrock designer paper. The die had precut holes for the brads. I printed the sentiment on the computer, punched with the oval, and punched the scalloped oval to complete the project.

My grandson Patrick loves St. Patrick's Day for obvious reasons. So I made forty of the boxes for his classmates and teachers.

Make A Wish Spinner



My great-nephew Keelan is four years old soon. I made this card with Stampin Up's spinners. I have the spinner stamp set, but I felt this was more appropriate for a small child. I stamped the vehicles, punched with a scallop square, sponged the edges, and added the spinner. Fun card!
