Make a Wish

Today I am sharing this lovely birthday greeting I created for my Mom's birthday! I used some Simple Stories papers.  I created the punched doily using my Kreaxions Circle Cutter. After marking my circle with the A template, I punched along the marked lines using the Kreaxions #905 punch. I topped off the card with some ribbon and some gold pearls.I stamped my Greeting using Dare 2B Artzy's new Bright Birthday Stamp Set.

Big Blooms Thinking of You


Today I am sharing this cute card made with the new Big Bloom set from Dare 2B Artzy! To create this card I started by stamping my image with Dare 2B Atrzy's Totally Black Premium Ink and then colored my images with Tim Holtz Distress markers. If you want to recreate these colors I used Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Candied Apple, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover and Pine Needles.  I then fussy cut my blooms and layered them on my card, topping the blooms with a bit of bling!  To create the sentiment I used another Dare 2B Artzy stamp set the Thinking of You Set (12059) stamped with Dare 2B Artzy's Wild Orchid Premium Ink.  I hope you enjoyed this card and are inspired to create!

Downton Abbey Birthday Greeting!

Today I am here sharing this Downton Abbey inspired Birthday Card! I confess these Downton Abbey papers came free with a magazine I purchased.  The confession is I bought the magazine for the papers!!!!!!!  I love Downton Abbey!  And so does my sister, for whom I made this Birthday crad. To create this card I cut a 5 inch circle using my Kreaxions circle cutter and then marked my punch lines using the A template.  I punched the doily using my #305 Kreaxions punch. I just love that purple doiley!  I topped it off by adding my greeting, some ribbon and a flower, and a few gold pearls.  Hope you are inspired to get punching!
