Happy Birthday Matey!

Hello all, I have a fun and quick card to share with you today.
This card was made using my Imagine and the Buccaneer cartridge.  I printed all the papers and the printed and cut the imagines.
Sometimes I have a hard time making a card for a young male birthday, this made it so easy.  I am a very happy camper when my Imagine and CCR are playing well together, and lately that has been the case.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.

Card using Tags

Hi, have a simple card to share with you today.
Recently I got my set of the Anna Griffin embossing folders, wow I love them. 
I used one of the 5 x 7 ones for this card.
I used some s.e.i Ally's Wonderland die cut tags that I have had for a very long time.
I mounted those tags on a strip of white pearl paper, then added some sheet ribbon at the top.  That's it!
Thanks for stopping to take a peak, I love reading your comments.

Mojo Monday 308 - Round

Hello, as many of you know I like to play along at Mojo Monday whenever I can.  This week I loved the sketch and I opted to do the round version.   They can be intimidating but this one went together very easy.
 Thanks to Michelle at Michelle my Belle who sets up these cuts files each week and shares them with us for free it makes putting these cards together pretty easy.
I started out to make this as a Christmas card because the background paper is from last years CTMH paper pack, but all my Christmas stamps are packed up for now I changed courses.  The background paper does not look that Christmasy so I changed into this, flower card.  The sentiment is a stamp from Rubbernecker stamps, the same set I used to make my Watercolor Card that you can see HERE.
The flower is a sticker from K&Company.
Well that's it, hope you like my card and get inspired to join Mojo Monday for their challenge.
Thanks for stopping by

Happy Birthday in the Round

Hi, I have a fun card to share with you today.
I bought this happy birthday round stamp years ago, but rarely use it.
After making this card I think I will have to dig it out more often.
I stamped it in white on the black and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I stamped a Gina K stamp in the center and embossed it with red.
The plaid paper is from the CTMH  Roxie paper pack. 
Thanks you so much for stopping by, please let me know what you think of my card.

Watercolor Stamping

Hello everyone thanks for stopping by today.
A while ago I bought some watercolor stamps from Rubbernecker stamps. I finally got to try them out.
I used the Flowers in the Breeze stamp set for this card.
It is a 3 step stamping process to get this look.  I am really happy with the way it turned out for my first try and I am sure I will use them often.
The bow I cut using the CTMH Artiste cartridge.  It is so much fun making paper bows so they match your papers exactly.
I hope you like my card, please let me know what you think.

Mojo Monday 305

Hello everyone, as many of you know I love playing along each week at Mojo Monday, unfortunately I don't get to do it as often as I would like.
This week I did get to play click HERE if you want to see the sketch I had to follow or if you want to play along.
Here is my card.
The papers are from Webster's Pages.  I got one of their grab bag like boxes a while back that was just full of all kinds of goodies, these papers are one of the things that was in there.  To carry out the dot theme, I embossed a piece of vellum with the Spot & Dots folder.  I also pop dotted the happy birthday oval.  Added some buttons with thin ribbon through them and that is it.
Thanks for stopping by and I love reading your comments.

I will link up my cards at the following challenges

Card & Magnet in One

Hello, glad you stopped to take a peak.
I have a card to share with you today that is kind of a card and a gift all in one.

All the papers were printed using my Imagine, plus I used several different Cuttlebug folders.
The center flower I picked up quite a while ago not knowing that it was a magnet.
When I assembled this card I put a piece of magnet material behind the scalloped circle so this magnet flower would stick to it.  Once in a while I come up with a clever idea, LOL.  It is not a card that could be easily mailed because it does stick out a bit, so I will have to save it for an occasion that I can hand it to the person or make a envelobox.  Not sure what occasion I will use it for but when I decide I was thinking of stamping the sentiment on a small piece of paper and placing it between the petals on the flower.

Thanks for stopping in, I would love to hear what you think of my magnet card.

Blue & Yellow Checked

Hello everyone glad you stopped by.  I just realized something, I have the hardest time coming up with a title for my post.  LOL
Well this one spells out exactly what this card it.
I made this using these papers I have had for a very very long time.  I bought this paper pack from D.O.T.S when I first started making cards over 16 years ago.  the company DOTS is now known as Close to my Heart.  I love the contrast of the bright blue and yellow.
The banner I cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.  The center area and blue strip I used my new Anna Griffin Cuttlebug embossing folders.  I love them, I know they came out a little while ago but I just got them.  I also cut the label using Art Philosophy and stamped it with a Gina K stamp.

Thanks you so much for taking the time to stop by and I would love read your comments.

Berries and Cream Papers

Hello, I hope everyone is doing well.  I feel terrible that I have neglected my
blog so.   I decided to sit down type up and schedule a bunch of posts
of the cards and things I have been making. 
Today I have a card I made using the papers I printed using my Imagine and the Berries & Cream cartridge.  I really love my Imagine machine and the papers
I can print, it is just such a shame when mine dies that is it, well I will cross that bridge when I get to it.  I do have a Silhouette Cameo so I can do print and cut there also.
Sorry, :'} now on to the card.
 I love how these papers look together.  Sometimes I have a hard time putting different patterned papers to together, but this time I think I got it right.  I embossed the pink layer with my Cuttlebug folder Decorative Tile.  I cut the scalloped circle and the regular circle using Cricut Craft Room Basics,  The ribbon/banner I cut using CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.  I added some cord and put it through a CTMH ribbon slider.
Well again I want to say thanks for stopping by and thanks to those that have been patience with me regarding posting on my blog.

Easel Card

Hi I have a quick card to share with you today.
Although I do not make them often I do like the easel style card.  They are so versatile is the style that you can make them.
For this one I chose to have the top stick out and not be the same size as the bottom part.  Does that make any sense???? LOL
OK, now that you see it I guess you can figure out what I was talking about.  The top part with the flowers is a K&Company Tim Coffey die cut and so is the dragonfly.
The bottom where I stamped the sentiment using a Gina K stamp I cut out using a Spellbinder.  The check paper I printed using my Imagine.
Well I told you it was a quick post, that's it.
I am grateful that you stopped by today, have a great day.

Laughing Lola Birthday

Hello all, Laughing Lola that is the name of the CTMH paper pack where all the papers came from to make this card.

I love the color combination and patterns that are in this paper pack.  The black strip along the left side is Washi tape.  I bought Washi tape a long time ago and am trying to make myself remember to use it.
The happy birthday I cut using my Silhouette Cameo, I love using their software because you can easily make a shadow layer for any cut.

Be sure and check out the CTMH Laughing Lola paper pack, it also comes in a Card Making Kit and a Scrapbooking Kit.
Today is also the day that the new Cricut Artbooking cartridge in available for purchase.

Well thanks for stopping by, I love to read your comments.
Hugs have a great day
