George, the monkey

Here is George,
George of the Jungle.
Oh, I just had to make this an easle card so George could stand up and be noticed. I think he is adorable and I would love to see him done with copic markers. I used pencils as I don't know how to do copic markers yet. The DP is from my stash, and I love all the orange and browns. Perfect for the monkey. I used an EK Success border punch for the top border. The card is brown even though it looks black. I added the orange and brown oval tag for the sentiment and that is what helps George stand up so perfectly.
Thanks for stoppin by and have a good day...

I've missed you

Isn't this elephant the cutest ever? Just love it, so cute. This is one of the new stamps from Great Impressions and the jungle plants behind the elelphant is the stamp of the month. I put pop dots on the elephant up so it would be in front of the plants. And the butterfly is also pop dotted also. I added the Shamrock Green Flower Soft on the large leaves of the jungle plants. This really looks cute in person. Added some cute polka doted ribbon on the tag and done. The green paper is the card, and that is where it opens. The blue and pink are glued down together, so it is a 3 1/2' card. but the whole card measures 4'' square.

Happy Father's Day

Here is the card that was done at my workshop for Father's Day. I added a lot of glitter on the dragonfly. And gel dots for the corners to add bling. Of course I didn't need a lot of bling for a father, but a little bit was okay. I pierced the corners of the dragonfly square and then added the gel dot. I colored the gel dot myself with Acohol Ink so I could get the right color of blue. Love the DP, it is from Karen Foster. The fathers day stamp is from Great Impressions.

This is my card that I wanted to try out. I remembered seeing something like this on someone's blog. And of course, I can never find the card again. So thanks for the inspiration if this is like your card. I like the black and white with a touch of red. Love those circles, too. I think my ribbon needed to be a little bit wider, but that was all I could find. I even had someone tie the ribbon like you would tie a regular tie. I sure didn't know how it was done.

Thank you for stopping at my blog.
And have a great Tuesday....

Happy 4th of July

Inside of Card
Happy 4th to everyone.
I made this cute card with the cutest bee.
I added white stripes to the red layer to make it look like a flag. I adore the bee, and with the firecracker in his hand, how cute is that. And the Liberty crown on his head.
Cute Cute Cute...
I stamped the blue flower with the scallop circle punch to make my sentiment. Then stamping Happy 4th and layering it to red and blue paper. The whole thing is then popped up on the main card.
The Bee is from Stampendous and the 4th stamp is from Rubber Cottage.

Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July with families and lots of fun things going on.

Happy Birthday

Thought I would show you a card I made in my last workshop.
The flowers are stamped from Vellum and rolled a little bit on the ends to give them a little bit of shape. I punched a little flower from another punch and centered a light green brad through all the flowers to keep them together. The flower ribbon is adorable and it comes from a store here in Ohio that has so much ribbon in it, it is hard not to want every roll of ribbon they sell. And everyone say if you can count your rolls of ribbon, you don't have enough, well I can't count how many rolls of ribbon I have. And crazy me went there the other day and bought 8 more rolls of ribbon. My designer paper is from a stacker. And of course the stamp is from Stampin Up. There is also a paper store that sells paper by the pound. I have entirely to much paper, too. It is awesome paper. Some of the paper is 110#, but I try to just buy the 80# weight. And so many colors, of course I need all the colors.
Thanks for checking out my blog and come back soon for more cards I hope to get on here soon.

Hang In There

Isn't this a cute kitty? And why not have birds with a kitty.
The sentiment inside the card is perfect for the little kitty hanging on to the tree branch.
Love the color combo so, so cheery.
These stamps are from Great Impressions.
Thank You for stopping by and your comments are very much appreciated.
Have a great day

Special Friend

A very pretty card. I wanted to make a special card for a friend, and I thought this one was perfect, simple, elegant and special.

I layered them and sponged the beige color on the inside of the die cut.
Added some pearls and a bow. Done.....

Birthday Tulips

Thought I better get some of my cards on the blog before you all think I have quit blogging. I just keep running out of time. My life is so busy right now I don't have time to think. Anyway, here is a fabulous card I did using the Two Step Bird Punch. I love this punch. And I think it makes the most gorgeous tulips.

* this is the inside of the card

I punched all the wings from the bird punch and sponged the edges and glued them to form the tulip and then adhered the tulips to the branch. Then I arrange them on the scallop square, which was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot Folder. The last thing to do is pop up the label tag with the sentiment.
Hope you like this card and try it. It is simple and really cute.

Stamps: Stampendous (I think, they are really old ones)
Paper: My Minds Eye and my stash
Punches: Two Step Bird, Label Tab, 1-1/4th Circle and the Nestie Scallop Square
Ribbon: My stash
