Hybrid My Digital Studio Happy Birthday

Today I have a Birthday card to share with you.  I used My Digital Studio to design the card layout and create the sentiment.  The cupcake is stamped on colored card stock and paper pieced to the white card stock.  It was not easy to cut that little heart out, but it does look cute.


Stamps:   Just Add Cake; Cupcake Trio
Paper: Strawberry Slush; Costal Cabana; Kraft; PTI White
Ink: Chocolate chip
Accessories: Early Espresso Bakers Twine; Circle Punch
Techniques: Digital Stamping

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today!

Happy New Year 2015 - Virginia's View Challenge # 11

Happy New Year 2015!!!

Today I have two cards to share with you. Both cards are for the Virginia's View Challenge # 11 Clean Slate.  You can find the challenge linked to the photo at the bottom of the page if you'd like to play along.

The layout for this card was inspired by a card I designed a couple years ago (Deepest Sympathy).   I changed it up by making it white on white, took out some butterflies, added pearls, and used a Happy Anniversary sentiment.

I also did a sympathy version of this card.  The only difference is there are a few extra butterflies and the sentiment is for sympathy.

While I don't make "resolutions" at the new year I have made a couple "goals".  The difference I see between resolutions and goals is having a plan to get to the goal.  My biggest goal for 2015 is to send out more cards to my family and friends.  This will require planning in advance.  I've already designed some cards and picked up some stamps for January birthdays so I have a good start on my goal.


Stamps:  Hero Arts Sentiments
Paper:  PTI White
Ink:  Versa Mark
Accessories: Silver embossing powder, Beautiful Wings Embosslit (SU), Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder (SU), White Basic Pearls (SU)
Techniques: Embossing

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today!  I hope 2015 will be a Happy and Healthy year for you and your family.

Congratulations Class of 2014

I MADE A CARD!!!!!  

It's a really clean and SIMPLE Graduation card.  The cool thing about this card is that by using the swiss dots embossed background I was able to easily cut the diagonal along the dots.  Sometimes it can be hard to get the cut just right.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Simple Numbers Craft Die for the 2014.  I recently picked up a few dies from SSS.  Luckily I used them just in time to play along with the Wednesday Die Crazy Challenge.  

The Congratulations was printed from Word (big surprise I know).

Paper:  PTI White, Basic Black (SU), Silver Glimmer Paper (SU)
Embelishments:  Numbers Craft Die (SSS), Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (SU)

You can find the DIE CRAZY Challenge HERE

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card! 

For my US friends - Happy Memorial Day!

We Make the Perfect Pear

Hi! I'm sharing a card that I made for the Dynamic Duos Challenge #89.

This is the second card I made using the Color In Valentines  Element Pack by Kate Hadfield at The Lilypad.  (The first card is below this post).  The color combo this week at Dynamic Duos is Pistachio Pudding and Blushing Bride.

About the card:

The image was colored digitally using the Stampin Up color codes for Pistachio Pudding and Blushing Bride and printed on PTI white paper.  I had some Pistachio Pudding paper with embossed hearts left over from my other card so I trimmed a strip and used it on the image panel,  I used the scallop edge punch at the bottom and added Dazzling Diamonds to dress it up a bit.
