2019 July, August Happy Birthday Cards

BF's Birthday is the day after Independence Day, keeping with the theme I found this "burst image" that is print then cut, chairs and HB are dies. Writing done with Cricut pens.



 Twin niece and nephew turning 10, I hope they are into Toy Story.  All is print then cut.




My daughter is turning 30, used same chair dies ran through wood look embossing folder, along with numbers and HB and an embossing folder then colored the birds with colored pencil and added Wink of Stella.

2019 April, May & June Crafts and Cards

July I have a great-nephew turning 10 yrs old who last I knew was a fan of bow ties.  Who better to sport one than Michey who is on an Action Wobble. (He was a leftover cut from the diaper cake just below as was the pants that I popped up so I put money in them.


I got inspired on various sites to make this Mickey diaper cake (Mickey & Friends cartridge) for my hair stylist who is expecting a boy in August.   

A sweet great niece turned 18 in June, with the help of some previously purchased punch out photos, Happy Birthday Daisy Die, and a swiss dots embossing folder, I created this card. 


A dear friend celebrated her 74th birthday, more photo punch outs, another HB die and some printer sentiments then cut out with stitched shaped dies. 


Son in Law turned 30, an Airman.  Purchased the mug while vacationing in Pensacola at their lighthouse shop.  I had to ask his favorite candy bars (Dollar Tree).  Pennant and decorations all Cricut cuts.

2019 March - Busy Card Month

Great niece had a baby girl.  This kit card from Inspiration Station with the addition of a stamp I had made this card.

Father In Law celebrated his 92nd birthday, my first attempt at eclipse letter card.  I printed our sentiment on my printer and punched the corners.



My dear childhood friend lost their granddog this month and I created this card using paper from a Paw Patrol pack, a Cricut Cut and Draw for saying (Fontastic Fonts - DJ Smooth), Paw Print is from Disney - Mickey and Friends cartridge and border embossing folder for paw prints.



Son-in-law's parents are also neighbors, will be returning from their winter home.  A card to welcome them home.  Cuts are from: 50 States-Michigan, Plantin Schoolbook-heart, Create a Critter-house, writing on cover-Baby Steps cartridges.


This is a card kit I had such fun putting my own touches to changing from a get well card into a winter birthday card.


Another card kit I personalized.






I can never have enough masculine cards.  Ran through embossing folder, print under balloon was done Cricut, used dies for balloons and wish inside.





Simple card using Artfully Sent - Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge.  Used flower cut out and shaded on inside flap, stamping with a generic birthday stamp.


Again with the masculine cards, two great-nephews have birthday's a week apart.  One is a hockey player, the other is turning 13 ( I added a "13" on the left inside after photo was taken. ) The test on cover is using the writing feature with the Cricut - Cambria and Eritta Script fonts.  Basic circle shape and Duck Tape Pennant off Simple Shapes.  Love the embossing die to get that manly look.  I then added various stickers and velum sentiment wishes.

2019 - February

Nothing much going in January, but February starts the year of birthdays every month thought. Also there is Valentines Day which is also my husband and I's anniversary moving into together. This card was kit I got from Inspiration Station that I personalised with a few extra hearts on the cover and did the inside with the help of my Cricut Air.



The above card is for one of our great-nieces using Stampin Up Love and Affection stamps and the wish on the inside is a stamp from Hobby Lobby.



Nephew suddenly lost his father; first card is for him, his wife and family (writing is French Script done with Cricut, bottom scallop cut was done with scissors); second card was for his mother who I've known for years (Sending Love and Sympathy off Simple Every day and Cherry Blossoms free images). Both were stamped inside using a Hobby Lobby stamp.

2018 Christmas Card, Gifts and Birthdays

Here are more Christmas Cards I made.  Some are from a class I took from My Pink Stamper using Stampin Up products.  The ornament is a Cottage Cutz Die.


















For our great nieces I made floating ornaments.






For some good friends I etched a trivet and an ashtray.



Brother-in-law's birthday card using my new die I got from China (against my better judgement but 1/16 of the price of the Stampin Up one).  This was my first shadow box card.
