Vintage Bingo Baby Card

I found these bingo cards at an antique store and I loved the mint green color. I thought they would be great for spring, St. Patrick's or Easter cards.  Here is a baby card I made using the  bingo card and a baby duck cut from the Cricut cartridge "New Arrival".  I added a few hearts (punched from Stampin' Up heart punch) and a few small sentiments (from a clear stamps set).  The small gems at the bottom have a slight plaid design to them.  I used "Barely Banana" card stock for the base.

Pirate Chick

When I saw this paper, I just had to get some.  My classroom theme is"Pirates". I was going to make some bookmarks, but then I remembered my Pirate chick and used some of the paper for these cards.  (I am going to add the sentiment "ahoy, matey", but can't remember where I put that stamp!)  Oh well, when I find it, I will finish these cards, otherwise, they look cute the way they are.  Thanks for stopping by!

Princess Birthday Cards

 I bought set "Pretty Princess" (retired Stampin' Up) off of ebay because I thought it was so cute and I always need "kid" birthday cards.  I made one in purple and one in pink (and I think they are both equally adorable!)  Of course, they are all glittered up.  I added a lacey flower with a Stampin' up button and a birthday sentiment to finish off the card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Love Birds

This card was made using the Stampin' Up set "The more, the merrier" (retired hostess).  I haven't used this stamp before and now I am wondering why!  I love the way this card turned out. Just a little holiday pattern paper, copics to color the birds, a small piece of red ribbon and a little heart shape gem for the middle!  Thanks for stopping by!

You and Me

This is probably my favorite Valentine card this year, although it was probably the most difficult. Difficult because of all the little pieces that have to be put together or maybe because the eyes are so small.  Really, other than that, the card goes together quick and cute.  The owls are from the Stampin' Up owl punch, the circle and scallop are from the Marvy punches, the leaf branch is from the sizzlet die from Stampin' Up and the sentiment is from Unity Stamps.  (Background paper was from a large glitter paper pack, brand unknown).  Thanks for looking!

Penguin Popsicle

This cute little penguin stamp set (and die) are by Papertrey Ink and given to me from my best friend for Christmas.  It is the cutest set ever.  This card could be used for so many different occasions; friendship, Valentines or just a note on a hot day. This small card packs a big punch on cuteness!

Glittered Polka Dots and Flower

This sparkly card was made with the die cut "Fun Flowers from Stampin' Up.  After I die cut the flowers, I embossed them with a cuddlebug embossing folder and distressed the edges.  The leaves were made with the large oval punch (Stampin' Up), folded in half and then run through a crimper.  The sentiment tag was made with the large oval punch as well.  A little cream satin ribbon finishes off this cards.  Thanks for looking!

Funky Flower

Here's a sample of some funky flowers I made on the Cricut with the George and Basics cartridge.  I love this flower, it is one of my all time favorites.  After I cut the flowers, I dry embossed them with a cuddlebug embossing folder for a little textured look.  I attached them with a big sparkly gem brad.  The flower is mounted on a red square that has also been embossed.  The funky background paper was just something I have had and wanted to use up.  The big chuncky "HELLO" sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  Thanks for looking!
