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!

Hi, today I have a tutorial for you. I read about this technique on the Splitcoaststampers forum. In the video below I will show you how to use Aleene’s Tack-It Over & Over glue on your rubber stamps, so you can mount them on acrylic blocks. All you need is Aleene’s Tack-It Over & Over glue, a sponge brush and unmounted rubber stamps. This was my first time trying this technique and it was very easy. If you would like to learn how to do this, please watch my video below.
