Happy 12th Birthday Emma!

I made this card for my 12 year old cousin, Emma. She is a real outdoors person, so this image was perfect for her.

The patterned papers are from Kaiser Craft's Hey Birdie 6 x 6 paper pack and the cardstock used on this card is from Bazzill.

The oval and scalloped oval were cut out with nestabilities and the small flowers were punched out with an EK Success small flower punch.

The glitter brads are from Stampin' Up and I used Stickles (glitter glue) in the middle of the punched out flowers.

The image stamp is from CC Designs, the "Happy Birthday" stamp is from CTMH and the inside sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Copic Markers used are: Face - E00 & E000; Brown - E23, E25 & E27; Pink - R83 & R85

Thank You.....for everything.

I really love CTMH's August Stamp of the Month - Wicked Stamp Set. I had a lot of fun with this card because I got to play with some new techniques.

The two-sided patterned papers are BoBunny's Strawberry Double Dot & BoBunny Vicki B. Floweret. The cardstock is from Bazzill.

I used Making Memories brads, Stampin' Up ribbon, CTMH button, embroidery floss from my stash and Tim Holtz Hobglobin Tissue Tape stained with Stampin' Up Tango Tangerine re-inker.

I used the following CTMH stamp sets for this card: Wicked - August Stamp of the Month; Limited Edition - September Stamp of the Month; Cherish the Day - November Stamp of the Month; A Little Thanks; Card Chatter - Thank You and Grown with Love.

I used CTMH's New Cricut Cartridge - Art Philosophy to cut out the ticket & the tag die-cuts. The shaped pocket that the witch is stamped on was cut out with my Nestabilities Grand Labels Four.

You still have time to order the August Stamp of the Month - Wicked.

Shanna has an order going in this Thursday, August 11, 2011. We needed this order to get in early in August so that we can order more stuff in for our Charity Stamping Party in September.

Shanna is on holidays and I am helping her organize this order. So, if you want to order the Stamp of the Month or anything else from CTMH, please email me your order at or drop by the store.

Happy 16th Birthday Andrea!

It was my niece's 16th birthday this past week and this is the card that I made her.

I forgot to take my photo before signing the inside of the card. I believe that my cards look great on the inside until I sign them. Then it doesn't have the same feel to it, but the card must be signed so I try not to look at the card on the inside once they are signed.

The patterned papers are from Basic Grey's "Out of Print" 6 x 6 paper pack and I used Stampin' Up's Pool Party cardstock. You don't see too much of it, but I also used Basic Grey's "Out of Print" Paper Ribbon Doilies & Kaiser Craft Rhinestones to embellish the card.

The image stamp is Stamping Bella's "Cruise-a-bella" stamp. The sentiment stamps on the front of the card are from CTMH's "Cherish the Day" stamp set and "Fill in the Blank" stamp set. The inside sentiments came from CTMH's "Card Chatter - Birthday" stamp set.

I used my circle nestabilities for the circle die-cuts and Stampin' Up's Calypso Coral & Pool Party Ink to stamp out the sentiments on the card. The black line on the inside of the card was done with a marker and a ruler.

The Copic Markers used: Hair - E37 & E39; Skin - E00 & E000; Tires - W10; Coral - R24; Teal - C1 & BG11
