Happy Friday! I hope you’re all ready for the weekend. Maybe some of you have some crafty plans. I definitely do. My boyfriend recently surprised me with a Cricut Explore for Valentine’s Day. It’s been so fun to design projects and I’m really impressed with the cuts this machine produces.

Today I’m sharing with you a simple but pretty ballet birthday card. I made this for my niece, she’s a beautiful dancer and I know she’ll love this card. At the end of this post you’ll find a tutorial video that includes all the measurements and card details. You can also visit me at my YouTube channel for more card ideas and tutorials.

To make a coordinating envelope, I cut a second pair of ballet slippers to adhered them to the envelope.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and checking out my card. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Saturday! Today I’m sharing a beautiful Birthday Card with you. I used two Stampin’ Up stamp sets, Swallowtail and Stippled Blossoms. The Swallowtail stamp is one of my all time favorite stamps. If you have it, it’s probably a favorite of yours as well.

I love doing one layer cards and this stamp is perfect for them. Just add a sentiment and maybe some pearls or rhinestones and you’re done! Gotta love a fast and gorgeous card! Below I posted some close up pictures and a tutorial video, if you’d like to watch me make this card.

As you can see this Swallowtail stamp is amazing!

I think the Swallowtail and the Rose go together so well. I stamped both images with Stampin’ Up Bermuda Bay ink.

On the inside of the card I stamped the large flower image from Stippled Blossoms. This set is another one of my favorites. It’s a two-step stamp set with beautiful results every time. The sentiment stamp is from Heidi Swapp.

I really hope you liked today’s card. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Hello My Friends. It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted. I never meant to be away from my blog and YouTube this long. So I do apologize for being away and if I worried anyone with my absence.

I missed everyone so much and I hope you are all doing awesome! Happy crafting and see you soon with a card share.

Hello Crafty Friends! I hope you are all having a great week. My week is going good and I’m looking forward to the weekend! St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and if you haven’t made a card, now is the perfect time. Crafty Cardz Challenge has a fun themed challenge just for you.

Challenge#127: “ERIN GO BRAUGH”
Make a card for St. Patrick’s Day using GREEN, BLACK and WHITE ONLY!

My 4×4 St. Paddy Day card is below. I used the leprechaun hat from Paper Doll Dress Up and the clover from Give A Hoot. I stamped the background with a Studio g stamp, embossed the hat, glittered the black trim, inked/chalked around each element and even though it doesn’t show the hat was dusted in green Pearl X powder and the clover is painted with green pearlized paint.

This is one time I wish I had an Action Wobble. Oh well, pop dots did the job!

I think the argyle embossing really adds a nice touch to the hat.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to see what you create for this challenge. Happy St. Patrick’s Day and be sure to enter this fun challenge at CardzTv!
