Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is a very special little boys birthday and I want to share the card I created for him.


The pattern paper is from my stash, and I anchored this on a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  I then took another piece of Whip Cream cardstock and cut out a circle with Journey Circle Dies.  I stamped Happy Birthday from a stamp in my stash and Black Licorice ink from Fun Stampers Journey.

But the star of the show is the little Skater which I colored with my Copic Markers.  The stamp is a Paper Nest Doll and I love the simplicity of these stamps.

Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you had a great weekend.
This past weekend we celebrated the life of a dear friend.  I made this card in honor of her.


This is a very simple card. 
First you die cut the Rose Garden die from a piece of Bubble Gum Cardstock.  I then glued this to the card base I made with Pineapple Smoothie Cardstock. 
Next, die cut a Whip Cream tag from Treat Label die.  I stamped the sentiment from the Must Have Sentiments Stamp Set with Black Licorice ink.
I added some Fashion brads and a Special Days Organza ribbon bow to finish it off.

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am not done with making Birthday cards.  I made this card for a swap recently.


I love making shaker cards.  With the right tools, you can make lots of shaker cards.

I die cut the rectangle with the Journey Rectangles Die Set from Fun Stampers Journey.  I cut with two dies and pierced with one die in between.
I cut the balloons out on my cricut from some scrap cardstock I had.
After the card was layers up, I added the sentiment from the stamp set Inside and Out from Fun Stampers Journey and stamped it on with River Stone ink a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock and cutting a banner into the end.

Hello Crafty Friends,

It's February and I am still making Valentine's Day cards.  Today I want to share an unique order I received.  The customer wanted 4 different valentine's for 4 brothers.

I used the same layout as this card, which I already shared previously.


I changed the colors and did a little bit of masking to create a new card.


Here is what the four finished cards looked like.





The customer was very happy.

Paper: Fun Stampers Journey
Stamp: Hearts and Bows ATS Fun Stampers Journey, Sentiment Stampin Up
Bugs: Stickers
Sweet Candy Dots  Fun Stampers Journey

It is the first of the month and you know what that means.  We have a new "Anything Goes" challenge at the Love to Craft Challenge Blog.

Today, I want to share the card I created for the Design Team.


I used the Hearts and Bows ATC stamp and stamped with Black Licorice ink on Bubble Gum Cardstock, Watermelon Fusion Cardstock and Cranberry Bliss Cardstock.  I then anchored with with foam squares to the Black Licorice Cardstock and Pearled Basics panel.  I then added this panel to the Whip Cream Cardstock base. 
I added the sentiment from the Annual Celebrations set wih Black Licorice ink at the bottom.
Simple, but very festive.
