Birthday Birthday!

I know it's Christmas time and I should be thinking Snow, but one of my "OTHER" daughters turned 18 today and I just had to post pictures of the cute card and box I made for her.

Happy Birthday Kyra!!!

Yes I did forget to take a picture before we signed the card but oh well!

I used The Elegant Lines embossing folder and the big shot to emboss both the card and the cute little box!  I added Dazzling Diamonds to the embossed image on the card.  I then added a white label edged in Blushing Bride and a pink label both from the box die for the big shot, and popped it up with a black heat embossed Happy Birthday!
The inside of the card was stamped with a heart in Blushing Bride and the cakes were coloured with our fabulous wonder colour crayons!  I used a bit of grey to make the cakes "stable" and not look like they were floating in the air.  I tied a black satin ribbon around the second layer on the outside of card and added the same to the box!  What a cute set!
Surprises await inside the box!

Frenzy Friday Sketch!

It's Friday already!  My daughter has been away for 3 days and it feels like forever already.  At least I have things to distract myself with like the sketch this week.  
This sketch comes to us from Tammy Baldwin - thanks Tammy!
And here it is.
I am really into the Halloween spirit already ( my poor family)  so of course I could not resist digging into the new colours and products to create my card.  The cardstock is Rich Razzelberry, Cajun Craze and Wild Wasabi.  I dry embossed my web in the new Sizzix Folder for the Big Shot and then heat embossed with black to give a really cool effect with some black in between the webs too.  Hope you like it.  
Please go to the next blog and see what Kim has in store for us this week. 

Feel free to play along too!

Halloween Sneak Peak!

I was so excited to see Mr. Brown and tonight I finally was able to dig in a get busy on a couple of ideas that have been floating around in my head!
Hope you enjoy.
The new Halloween designer series paper is to die for!  It has flocking on some of it
And check out the spider web impressions folder for the Big Shot!!  Yowzer!
Impressions folder on Vellum Cardstock and then dazzling diamonds   The spiders I did with the cricut  and I think I am going to get some google eyes to go on the spiders too!
Happy Halloween is Embossed with white embossing powder on torn edge black scrap paper.

Impressions cob web on black card stock and then sponged with whisper White craft ink.  A torn scrap of black and embossed with glitter this time for the phrase.  Again the spiders are made with my cricut and I think I may get google eyes for them  but it kind of looks errie the way it is too?
And here is the designer series paper.  Check out the bats they are flocked!!  So cool!  I choose three pictures for this one - One for each of children on this first page and 10 is cut out on the Big Shot and placed over a scrap piece of vellum.  You could also choose to put a bigger picture and change up the mounting.  Love these colours!  Cannot wait to get my Halloween stamp sets coming soon!

Frenzy Friday Sketch!

Hola!!!  Happy Friday everyone.  I actually hate that its Friday as it means only 9 days to my beautiful daughter heads out on her new Journey at Waterloo University!  So proud of her and so sad that she is leaving.
All that aside check out the sketch created by my upline Sue Grant!  She is always amazing in everything she does.
And here is what I came up with!
I know its a little difficult to see but it does say Happy Birthday on it.Guess it is high time for a new camera  hint hint nudge nudge!
Usually at this point I would send you over to Kelli but sadly she has left our little group.  We all wish Kelli the best and will miss her creativity.

So onto Kim's blog - am sure you will not be disappointed here either

The stamp set used was from Vintage Lables which some of us received during Sale-a-bration.  Love this set!

Artistic Etchings

My Artistic Etchings just arrived today, so of course,  while the boys are away.......

This is such a fun set with all the little pieces so very cute!
I used Cherry Cobbler as a base, then used Early Espresso to antique the edges of the card.
I crumpled up a piece of the new Newsprint DSP and tore it and used Early Espresso on the torn edges
Next I took a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and embossed with Cherry Cobbler, Versa Mark and Clear embossing powder to word Amour several times.   I then spritzed with Log Cabin and Embossed the Eiffel Tower in Black.  I used black hemp twine as an accent and distressed the ends of the twine.

What do you think?

I Care!

After a fairly upsetting and down day,  I thought a cheery card would boost my spirits!  And since Mr Brown made his delivery today I had new things to play with too!!

This card and the new colours and DSP  did the trick for me - I hope it brightens your day too!

Frenzy Friday Sketch!

Happy Holiday Weekend to Canada and the US!  It is Sketch Frenzy Friday!

This weeks was designed by Connie Smith and here it is!
And here is my take 
I used two new colours  Marina Mist and Early Espresso and combined it with Certainly Celery.  The flower is from the pretties kit.  And I used the big shot to create the tag, and to add texture to the Certainly Celery layer.  I used The itty bitty set and versa mark to make a background on the Marina mist!

Head on over to Kelli's blog for more great creations!

Thanks for checking out everyones creations!  Don't forget that we all love comments too!
