Have a Hoppy Day!

Hi bloggers! Today I'm sharing a challenge project! I created this sweet little bunny treat to enter in the challenges over at SVG Cutting Files and Jaded Blossom. :)
I used a couple of different files to create my project. The base is from the Kawaii Sea Nugget Platform. The cute little bunny is from the Easter Peek Out Slider Set. I just modified the size of the grass and bunny in order for them to fit onto the nugget base. 
The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Easter Treats 2 stamp set.

Sending lots of love!

I'm back today to share one last card for the month. I originally made this card to share prior to Valentine's Day...but it never actually got posted!

No worries though, I can always share it now!
I wanted to make a Valentine's card that used non-traditional colors rather than the whole white, pink, and red that we are accustomed to. I created the base of the card with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle die. After die-cutting it, I just adhered it to a standard A2 sized card base.
The other die-cuts and stamp are all Simon Says Stamp exclusives.

For My Favorite Gamer!

Good morning! Once again, it seems like it's been forever since I posted last! But I'm here today sharing a super special birthday card. 

My oldest kiddo turns 15 today!
Damien is a die-hard gamer and upcoming YouTuber. :) So when I saw the Level up stamp set and Game Controller die over at My Favorite Things, I had to have it just for this card! I created the base with some of the rectangles from the Simon Says Stamps new In Stitches die collection.
I die-cut several of the controllers out in order to give the die a little bit of dimension. I added some black hemp twine for the cord (even though he has wireless controllers, oops!) and then some glossy accents onto the colored buttons. It's a simple, clean cut layout for a birthday card, but I think it turned out great!

Happy Birthday!

Good morning!

January is full of birthdays and I have yet another birthday card to share today!
 This adorable clown is from the Cute Little Circus file by Too Cute by Jessica. I decided to hide the face cuts so I could stamp one of these super cute little Peachy Keen Stamps faces on it instead. Then I used Copic markers to color it in. This has got to be one of the cutest little clowns ever! :)

Another Happy Birthday!!

Good morning! Who's up for another birthday card?! Today is my mom's birthday!

Happy Birthday Mom! 
I hope your day is wonderful!
For the birthday card today, I wanted to add a little dimension with a simple frame. I created a 4.25 x 4.25 square card within Silhouette Studio and used the Peachy Keen SVG outline for the size of the chef in order to know how big to make the frame. 
I cut the frame out 4 times (3 times out of plain white card stock and once out of a white patterned card stock) and just glued them together. Easy Peasy!

The chef is from the January 2014 Stamp of the Month. I stamped both him and the cupcake on X-press It Blending Paper and colored in his face with Copic Markers. I wanted to paper piece the rest of the outfit and the cupcake. So I picked out some misc card stock and added some shadows with more Copic Markers. I added a birthday sentiment from Jaded Blossom's So Many Birthdays stamp set and my little heart on top is covered with some glossy accents!

Happy Birthday Braxton!!

Good morning bloggers! Today is my nephew Braxton's 4th birthday!

Happy Birthday Braxton!!

Braxton is a fan of Bumble the Yeti. And of course since he has a winter birthday, I figured I could totally pull off a winter themed birthday card. :)
 Today's card is another shaker card. I used the Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables to create a frame to hold my sequins. I popped it up on two pieces of foam tape to give it enough room to shake. :) For the background, I used a new technique (for me) using a stencil and some embossing paste to create the snowfall.
 The Bumble Yeti is from Paper Piecings by Nikki. The snow banks were cut from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders. The sequins are a mixture of both Neat & Tanged and Pretty Pink Posh, and my sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom So Many Birthdays stamp set.

You're Engaged!

Good morning! Today I have a special card to share. A good crafty friend of mine got engaged over the Christmas holiday. And of course, that's something to celebrate! 

Congrats Ronda and Jon! :)
 For the engagement card I used the Love Always kit from SVG Cuts. I'm glad they included an engagement type file in one of their kits...because it was exactly what I was looking for.
 The card is sized to the standard A2 size. I modified it to create a couple extra layers for both the front and inside of the card. I really wanted to use glitter paper for the ring, but it is usually pretty difficult to adhere to other layers. I used TomBow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue and it seemed to work okay. There were a few pieces that gave me a little trouble but I finally got them with a bit of extra glue. 
 I adhered some vellum to the front of the card with some Ranger Multi Medium Matte. Love how you can hardly tell I used it. :)
I stamped the sentiment on the inside using the Jaded Blossom The Perfect Match stamp set and added some glitter enamel stickers to finish it off.
