A Divine Birthday Card

I made this for a coworker who turned 50 this month.  I used the Cardabilities Sketch #77:

I used Prima's Divine 6x6 paper pad, flowers, note card, and chipboard piece.  I'm kind of bummed because I had made a video of myself creating this card, and my video program didn't save it.  And I have already given the card to her.

I created the little pendant with a Spare Parts metal which I painted, and stamped "D" (her initial) on pattern paper and added glossy accent.  Added a white I Am Roses flower, Recollections faux pearls, did some stamping, and the die cut for the number 50 is from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping by.

Secret Garden card set

I was inspired to create some cards using the sketch on Cardabilities.  These cards are based on sketch #76:

Here are the cards I made:

The base of the card measures 5 1/2 by 4 and is made from the Graphic 45 8x8 Secret Garden paper pad.  I stamped the coordinating Secret Garden stamps with Versamark on the center panel, which is from the Secret Garden 6x6 paper pad and also used the coordinating chipboard pieces.  I used Papertrey Ink's Pretty Peonies stamp set and dies, I Am Roses, Memory Box leaf die, Spare Parts brad, feather, Prima Junkyard Findings clock face, Michaels key, string, and seam binding. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Here is a third card I made with the Webster's Pages New Beginnings paper pack:

The stamp sets I used are from Papertrey Ink: Bitty Baby Blessings and Mat Stack 4 Collection and die.  I paper pieced the sail boat from the paper pack.  Added a Papertrey Ink button and some seam binding and tulle.

New Beginnings Baby Card #2

Here is another card using Webster's Pages New Beginnings paper and trim.

I die cut a small image from the paper with the Tim Holtz sewing die to created a chipboard button.  I used some Papertrey Ink goodies, such as the Bundle of Love stamp set, Tag Sale #6 die, button, and Flower Fusion #3 die on melon berry felt.  Also added some seam binding to top it off.

Thanks for stopping by!
