Happily Ever After with Spellbinders Wedding Dress and Tux
To make this card, I started with A2 card base using 110lb white cardstock. I die cut two rectangles using the largest of the MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX dies, using a dark blue cardstock. I got out my Spellbinders Glimmer machine and used the Spellbinders Glimmer - Essential Duo Lines Rectangles with silver hot foil to create a beautiful border around the dark blue cardstock.

Getting Artsy Fartsy with Lawn Fawn's Summer Release!
I die cut the glass jars of paint with Heavyweight Translucent Vellum. I then die cut the same jar out of a blue and green cardstock. I cut the colored pieces smaller and glued them on the back of the vellum to look like paint in the jars. I then added Glossy Accents to make the jars look like glass.
I absolutely can't wait to give this card to my crafty friend for her birthday! This is such a great set if you have a crafty friend, or even just a friend that likes art! As always, thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!

Flower Pot Birthday Card Surprise!
Hello and welcome! Todays card was made for someone very special and important to me, my Mom! It is her 73rd Birthday today, so a extra special card had to be made. For this card, I used Karen Burniston's Twist Panel Pop-Up die set as well as Karen Burniston's Flowers and Bee die set and the Flower Pots from the Flower Pot Pop-Up die set.A2 Stitched Rectangles and Lawn Fawn Dandy Day cardstock in the light pink.
For the inside of the card, I die cut the pop-up in the middle of the card using 110lb white cardstock. I added a cloud and grass background using MFT Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Grassy Edges Stencil. I used Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn for this piece.
I die cut the pots from scrap yellow cardstock and ran the pot bottoms through my Cricut Cuttlebug and embossed a fancy design. Then using the same ink colors as the frame on the front of the card, I added some dimension to the pots.
I had to trim the pots down to fit the center pop-up. I glued on the flowers using Neutral PH Lineco Adhesive (honestly the best glue I've ever used!) and my Karen Burniston's fine tip bottle. I die cut the "make a wish" sentiment from the same word set birthday dies and added glitter stickles to make the sentiment pop!
I die cut two pieces for the top and bottom of my card using 110lb white cardstock and MFT Stitched Scalloped Edges. I stamped the "You are loved" sentiment from MFT Essential Sentiments.
This card went over very well! My Mom loves flowers and has some very beautiful gardens around their house, so this card was perfect for her! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

My First Bitty Ball Pop-Up!
Hello and welcome! Todays card is extra special to me because it's inspiration comes from my big fuzzy Bernese Mountain Dog, Angus! I finally bought myself the Bitty Ball Pop-Up from Karen Burniston and let me tell you, I kick myself for not getting it sooner!
black fur to the feet. For the tail I die cut two pieces, one black and one white. Bernese Mountain Dogs have long haired tails that kind of look like a fan. So I added a white end to the black tail and with my scissors added little cuts to look like fur.
I die cut out two pieces with black cardstock to make the ears and with my scissors added little snips to make the ends of the ears look like hair.
I used white paint and carefully painted between the trapezoids where the black cardstock shows through so that his face looks solid white.
I added glossy accents to the eyes and nose, then once that was dry I added white highlights with a white Gel Pen. I die cut out the mouth with black cardstock and using the smaller oval, cut out a pink tongue. I had to trim it down to fit the mouth.
I cut an A2 card base using Kraft cardstock from My Favorite Things. I had a small 6x6 paper pack from Doodlebug Designs called Puppy Love and used the orange cardstock with little dog bones on it for the background paper. I used a piece from the same pack with had grass on it and cut that out using the MFT Slimline Grassy Hills Die-namics. I added the Happy Birthday sentiment from Karen Burniston using a glitter blue cardstock.
I have to say, I am super proud with how this little guy turned out. I hope you find him as super cute as I do. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
