You’re too Kind

2 Thoughts


Wow, I can’t believe it’s April 26 today!!  Only 5 more weeks of school!  Whew, time is flying.

I have lots of things I’ve been working on to show you.  I’ll be posting several days this week.  First, I want to show you a very bright, cheery card :-)  The sketch and inspiration are from Verve’s April challenges Week 1.

Kind Flower VLVApr2010 (Large)

I just love that huge flower!  The largest layer was cut using SU! Clear Flower Die.  The other layering flowers were cut using punches.  I embossed the white layer using CB Divine Swirl embossing folder.

Thanks for looking!

I’m back again :-)

This second card I have to show you I really love.  It is for Verve’s week 1 challenge.

Latte VLVMar2010 a (Large)

Latte VLVMar2010 b (Large)

For the foam I used Liquid Applique.  It’s easy to use and adds a great touch!  The vanilla layer is embossed with CB Divine Swirl EF.  Doesn’t it look delish?!

Have a very happy Easter!!

Hello :-)

I have been taking part in Verve’s challenge this month.  You can read about it HERE.  Everything is due tonight by midnight!  I have two cards to post, so here the first…

Vintage Vogue VLVMar2010 (Large)

This card is for week 3.  This was a hard color combo for me.  I wanted to tie the caramel and blue together, so I colored my stamps with markers to get both colors in the images.  The background is embossed with CB Victoria EF.

Check back soon for my next post…a card I LOVE!!

It’s Thursday!

What a beautiful sunny day today!  I am sooo ready for spring!  Hopefully the tulips will start peeking out soon!

I made today’s card for a little guy who just had a birthday…

VLVMAR2010 Paxton Bday (Large)
The bird was stamped in Momento Black Tuxedo ink then colored with Copics.  My turquoise layers were embossed using the Big Shot and Floral Screen Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug).  {Almost} everything is popped up with dimensionals.

This sketch and my inspiration is from Verve’s VLVMar2010 Week 2 challenge.

Have a wonderful day!

Cupcakes with a box to match!

Hi :-)

I have been working on a project for a friend of mine.  She wanted sock cupcakes to give a…very hard to shop for…friend.  I had so much fun with her gift!  I made a box and matching card too :-)

Cupcake Box Raei 1 (Large)

Oh, I made the bow too!

Cupcake Box Raei 2 (Large)

Cupcake Box Raei 3 (Large)

Cupcake Box Raei 4 (Large)

Cupcake Box Raei 5 (Large)

Cupcake Box Card Raei VLVMAR2010 (Large)

Isn’t it fun?!  The box is big…9x6x4.  I cut the middle out of the lid an attached a window sheet to it.  I made the bow out of some SU! ribbon, embellished it with layered buttons, then used a glue dot to adhere it to the window sheet.  The cupcakes are made out of socks and embellished with ribbon, buttons and SU! chunky glitter.

I made the card to coordinate with the box.  The sketch is VLVMAR2010 with the Oh My Cupcake! inspiration.

I hope you like it!  Thanks for looking :-)

Photoshop Baby Card; VLVMar2010

Leave a comment

Happy Wednesday (almost Thursday)!

I have been playing in Photoshop Elements.  A very good friend of mine had a baby girl and just emailed me some updated pics.  I took the most precious one  and started playing.  I ended up with an awesome result, so I used it as the focal point in my card…

Mesa VLVMar2010 (Large)

Here’s the photo I started with:

Mesa original

Isn’t she sweet!

The white background of my card was embossed using SU! Perfect Details texture plate, then chalked over the raised areas.

The sketch and colors in this card were inspired by Verve’s Challenge.

Holiday Cheer MOJO119

3 Thoughts

Happy New Year’s Eve!

I’m slipping in this card before the holiday season is officially over :-)

Holiday Cheer 09 MOJO119 (Large)

I added a lot of shine with Crystal Effects.  The bulb is embossed with Detail White EP, then coated with Crystal Effects.  The snowflake was made using Brushed Silver CS, coating it with Crystal Effects, and sprinkling Dazzling Diamonds on while wet.  After it dried, I punched it with my snowflake punch.  The center is a white Dew Drop.   For the background, I used my CB Victoria Embossing Folder.  Once embossed, I went over the raised areas with Crystal Effects.  As usual, I used Dimensionals under each main layer :-)

The sketch (MOJO119):

Thanks for looking :-)  Happy 2010!
