Using Glubbers

Hi!  Back again to share another card I made.
This was my first time using Glubbers by Cosmo Cricket.
They are actually very large glue dots that you can wind thing up to make embellishments.  I love the idea of them, but I think I picked the wrong ribbon to use as I had some trouble getting it to stick, or I just touched them too much putting it on.
The papers are all from k*i Memories paper stack.
The stamp is a CMTH stamp.

Thanks for taking a peak at my blog today.

Teal & Purple Combination

Hi I made it back with two posts in one week!  Yeah!

I love this color combination, I think the teal and purple look so pretty together.
I hand cut all the square so that they would all line up correctly.  The papers are from a DCWV paper stack.  I cut out ovals and stamped it using a Gina K stamp, then added some crumbled ribbon that I laid flat.
This is a 4 by 9 card and fir into a #10 business envelope.

I am glad you stopped by, I would love to read your comments.

Bright Buttons

Hello everyone, I am so trying to get back posting regularly on my blog and thank those of you that have still come around when I do get a chance to post.

I have quite a few cards that I have made lately that I had not posted to I will try and get them on here.  The first one I have to share is this bright and cheery card.
The papers are from a K&Company stack.  
I added some matching buttons and tied some bakers twine in the middle.
The cuts are made using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to get some more cards posted later this week.

Wedding Card

Hello everyone, hope you have great plans for this Mother's Day weekend.
I have a wedding card to share with you that I made for my niece that is getting married and I am unable to attend so I wanted to make something special.
I can not take credit for this card as when I saw the card on the Team KNK blog I knew that was the special card I had to make, so it is totally scraplifted.
The cut files are all designed and set up my a lady that goes by Bird.  She
is so very talented and extremely generous as she shares are her files for FREE, so make sure you go check out her blog.
My card is pretty much a replica of hers except that I added a touch of pewter color as that is the wedding color.  Everything was cut using Bird's files, Make the Cut software and my Cameo.
Just like Bird I used a variety of paper textures, mostly pearl white textured papers.  I embossed parts of the cake to give it a little decorative look. 
Here is a close up of the flowers & leaves that are all made from vellum. 
I carried the same theme to the inside.  I printed the verse on vellum using my Canon printer.  The ink does not dry immediately on vellum so the second it came out of the printer I sprinkled it with pewter/silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I did the same thing on the small saying on the front of the card.
I added a couple stickers to dress up the inside.
Since this card was a bit bulky and it had to be mailed it would not go into a regular envelope so I made an envelope box for it's travel from Arizona to Chicago.
Here it is all tucked away in it's envelopbox.  I place this into a padded envelope and added some foam and other packing to make sure it arrived safely. 
I got word that it did arrive at it's destination safely. :).
In case you are no familiar with Make the Cut software you should check it out HERE,  It is by far the best die cutting software out there.
Well thank you for stopping by, I would love to hear what you think about
my wedding card.
Hope everyone has a very Happy Mother's Day.
