Cynthia's Birthday

I absolutely loved Bar's polka dot birthday card on SCS, so had to create one myself. Couldn't find the black and pink papers, so went with the Ooo La La line from My Mind's Eye. Also, since I am not good with ribbon, I glued a strip of pink plaid coordinating paper between the polka dot and "solid" paper and added glitter domes. I used Glimmer Mist in coffee shop and starfish for my flower.

Warren's Birthday Card

My brother has been a drummer since he was 14 years old. This Jolee's sticker set was perfect for his card. The dp is from Sassafrass Lass. Ribbon is from Michael's.


Stamped seahorse on white paper with silver pigment ink. Embossed with clear EP. Used Inkssentails blending tool to blend Tim Holtz distress ink in Tumbled Glass over seahorse. Ran turquoise paper through Big Shot with cuttlebug folder. Punched small starfish and MS branch punch from white paper. Used stardust pen on starfish.

Close-up of Bumble Bee

Busy Little Bee!

I have been as busy as this darling little bumble bee, crafting up a storm! The bee is a Sissix die, cut from yellow paper. Inked the body and legs with a black sharpie. Used a blending nib to add a hint of ochre ink to the yellow paper and wings. Finished the wings and body with a hint of stardust pen. The stamp medallion is from Inkadinkado. The yellow background paper was embossed with the Swiss dot folder.
