Graduation Thank You and Graduation Card, Father's Day also

First I would like to show you the thank you cards I made for Carl's Graduation.  So if you attended his party or sent a card and do not want to see the card, don't look and come back after you've received it in the mail. 

Right, I knew you'd look anyway.

This was fun to make.  I used my cuddlebug and embossing folders and embossed the gold paper with D'vine Design.  Then I embossed the black strips with dots.  I made my own glimmer mist and glimmered the black strips also.  The picture doesn't do it justice, but it really shimmers.  I layered the silhouette of the graduate and popped the maroon layer with pop dots.  Thank you font is one I downloaded from dafont.com and it's called Black Rose.  I really like it.  Next time I will try shadowing this font.  Anyway, hope you enjoy the card.

The next card is for my niece who also graduated this year.  It's simple but elegant I think.  The scroll is from A Child's Year and I double cut and handcut out the ribbon.  Then I tied a real ribbon into a bow and glued it on top.  The Sentiments are also using the Black Rose font.  I really like this font.

I haven't done too many shaped cards so I thought I'd try one.  Didn't turn out too bad.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my little card making and hope to see you again soon.

Brighten up your desk

My friend Lisa lost her grandma last week and I wanted to make her something to cheer her up. 

The desk set is in purple (her favorite color and mine so that was easy to work with).  The Post-it note holder has her name vinyled.  The pen/pencil jar has her name etched on it.  The glass globes are magnets spelling her name in vinyl.  The clip is to hold a memo or picture.  I also vinyled a little basket with her name but do not have a pic yet.  I will try to upload some more tonight or tomorrow.  I embellished all the items with the "mini prima roses" I made.  I have to say I wish I had a desk to put this on.

I hope you enjoy and have a great day.

Baby Prima Roses

baby pr
Ok, so scrappedlives.nl had this awesome utube video posted on how to make baby prima roses.  I am at work, so I had to punt using what I had around.  They turned out pretty cool.  Now I can't wait to cut some with my cricut.

Cow Card

I got this svg file from http://scrappedlives.nl/  She has some fabulous files to download and she does wonderful work.  Anyway, one of my friends is in love with cows, so I made this card for her.  It's very simple, but I just loved the cow and I wanted that to be the focal point.  Thanks.

Teacher Appreciation Week

As most of you know, I  have fallen in love with etching.  For Teacher Appreciation Week and I wanted to make something extra special for Austyn's teacher.
Education, Mother and Learning are etched.  The other words and flourishes are cut out with my cricut on black vinyl.  The mirror will hang with black and white ribbon.  Hope you like it.
