GATE FOLD BIRTHDAY CARD

HEY BLOGGIES,

Whew, we are just trying now to dry up and blow away here in central Texas.  It has been 100* here this week and is not going away any time soon.  We are putting out a sprinkler for our horses each afternoon to give them a chance to cool off if they want to.  Several days they chose to let it get them wet and today they chose not to.  But at least it is there if they need it.  AND it waters the grass at the same time.

I told my hubby that it is too hot.  How hot is it?  I said it is so hot that the boys (my male horses) are too hot to try to be naughty!!  hee hee  Being naughty is my interpretation when they are bored and start looking for something to get into that they should NOT be into - like my canna plants or my pear tree.  Evidently those taste very good when you are feeling frisky!

Anyways, on to my card for this week.  I have made a gate fold birthday card using Sprinkles of Life and Bohemian DSP.

My gate fold card has two overlapping pieces.  The cupcake is adhered on the left and the sentiment is adhered on the right.   Coastal cabana card stock is one of the colors that coordinates with our Bohemian DSP.  I used white and coastal cabana as the two coordinating colors of the patterned paper I chose from this pack.

 A closeup of my stamped images layered with coastal cabana cs and decorative label punch or circle punches.  I fussy cut the cupcake pieces. Cherry red square sequins adorn the sentiment piece.

The cherry on top with the small square sequin is covered with glossy accents.

I am entering my card in Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge.  Pop over to see the other design team members.

SEA STREET CARD

HEY BLOGGIES,

I have a fun card made with SEA STREET stamp set:
I used bermuda bay for the main color.  I stamped the school of fish all over for my bottom background paper.

  I made a tag with the tag topper punch and doodled with my black marker around it.  I put some resin star fish on it and attached it.

I stamped the three star fish and punched them out and added a layer punched behind and put them onto a starburst die cut black piece.

All made with Stampin' Up! except the resin starfish.

Thanks for stopping by.  This is for the SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY CHALLENGE.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BALLOONS CARD

HEY BLOGGIES,

I am a bit late for posting my Sketch Frenzy Friday card for this week.  Here it is without further ado:



I used the Balloon Dies to cut out the designer paper and backed it with whisper white.  The card base is bermuda bay and so is the ink. I put the speckles on the balloons with markers in the colors of bermuda bay, delightful dijon and rose red, and a sprayer.

Here was the sketch I worked from:

SIMON SAYS STAMP JUNE CARD KIT - YOU MAKE ME SMILE CARD

HEY BLOGGIES,

I designed this card myself with the items from the June Card Kit, as well as using some cloud dies and stamps from Stamps of Life.

 The Smile die is so much fun.  I love that they included this die in the kit.  The washi tape was also included in the kit.

I love the adorable little smiling sun puffy sticker.  It is so much.

I used a die from SU for the top of the sky, as well as soft sky ink.  And I used some wonderful moonstone drops underneath the clouds, unknown maker.

I am entering this card in the FRIDAY MASHUP! challenge this week - SUNSHINE.

Hope you enjoyed my card.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

BOHEMIAN PATTERNED PAPER AND A DRAGONFLY

HEY BLOGGIES,

Today I have a card that made me stretch out of my norm.  It is a very simple card, just not the kind of card I usually make.  I used the sketch from SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY to create my card.  Here it is:



The strips are what was so hard for me because it is not something I would usually do.  But that is what's so fun about sketch challenges, isn't it?  To try something new.  I am so glad I did this card from the sketch.


The adorable dragonfly silver charm on the blackboard tag is my favorite thing on this card.  I was going to stamp the dragonfly from the Awesomely Artistic, but one of my team mates already did that so I had to change midstream to something different.  I still went with the dragonfly, but did a silver charm attached to a blackboard tag instead.  How is that for AWESOMELY ARTISTIC!!

Thanks for visiting my blog.  Stop over at SFF to see the other entries.
