St. Patrick's Day Shaker Card

Here is my St. Patrick's Day shaker card.  I used Stampin Up's "Pinch Proof" set for the leprechaun and I cute the frame out of green glitter paper using a Spellbinder's template.  This was my first attempt at the shaker card and I was impressed with how simple it really was.  Thanks for looking.

Baby Card

Here is a baby card I made using Cricut's "Create A Critter" to cut out the giraffe. I punched the circles with a variety of punches that I had.  I think it turned out pretty well.  Thanks for looking!

Name Collage Sign

Here is my latest project. My cousin just had a baby boy named Carter.  I used Cricut's "Plantin Schoolbook" to cut out the letters. I cut the monkey, giraffe and elephant out of Cricut's "Create A Critter."  I punched the circles out of various size circle punches I have. I really like the way this turned out!  Thanks for looking!

Trophy Kill

I made this card as a joke for a friend of mine. I used Cricut Lite's "Wildlife" cartridge.  Some neat images on here if you have outdoorsmen in your family.

Sisters Tile

Here is a gift I made for my sister.  I first cut my tan piece of scrapbook background paper to 9 x 12 in size.  I stamped the large medallion in Basic Brown (Stampin' Up) down in the corner.  I took a 9x12 ceramic floor tile I purchased at Lowe's for a few bucks and decoupaged my background paper on it.   I covered it in a coat of Mod Podge.    I then cut out "Sisters make the best friends" out using Cricut's Stone Script and used DS to weld the letters together.  I cut some flourishes out in black paper using Cricut's "Cindy Loo" to use in the corners.  I matted my photos on black scrapbook paper to make them pop out.  I used Mod Podge on each layer I put down. I allowed AT LEAST 30 minutes between each coat.  I finished it off by putting a couple layers on top of it all.  My sister LOVED it! 

40th Birthday Card

Here is a 40th Birthday Card I made for my sister.  I used Cricut's "Celebrate With Flourish" to cut out the cake.  I embossed the red cardstock with my "Happy Birthday" Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I put glitter on the "40" to make it sparkly and tiny rhinestones to light the candles.   Thanks for looking!
