Every Pretty Girl Deserves Flowers!


Check out this birthday card!  I really like how this one turned out and I think I am going to do another version of this one.  [I promise someday I will have a better camera that will actually take some decent pictures.]

I made the flowers from a paper punch and added some dots and some bling in the middle of the flowers. I used adhesive foam dots on behind some of the flowers to give them a more 3-D effect.   

I used a mask to cover up the top of the jar and then I colored in the jar with colored pencil and used glossy accents on the jar to give it a shiny, glassy look. The card border was created using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

It's Your Birthday!

Here is a birthday card that I made for my sister.  I used gold and bronze metallic water colors to color in the girl's hair and added a blue border around the edge to add a bit more color.  For the sentiment I stamped on sewing pattern paper with brown ink.  Sorry there is a bit of a glare from all the shiny metallic paint.



I love old sewing pattern paper because it is semi transparent and has a antique look to it. 
I also put a scrap of it behind the flower.

Oh Hoppy Day!

Next week is one of my brother-in-laws birthday.  He is always randomly singing something and I remember him singing "Oh Happy Day" from the movie Sister Act 2.  

I saw this little froggy with his "Oh Hoppy Day" and I knew I needed to use it for my brother-in-law's birthday card.  Quite possibly, my sister-in-law won't thank me, because I can imagine that this will get him singing "Oh Happy Day" all day. LOL 




For this card I combined two challenges; a sketch challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack and a Color challenge from My Favorite Things Card challenges.

Thanks for checking me out!

Art Journal #2

This was super fun for me to do.  I used my favorite color, purple, for the background and did some stamping and splattering on it and I love how the cutouts ended up not complete covering up the background.

Get your Halo Dirty Birthday Card

Below is a birthday card that I made for my very sweet aunt for her birthday.  

I love the sentiment on the inside of the card and I found an angel in my holiday stamps to go with it and I just masked off the word "Believe" that was across her dress before stamping and it worked out perfectly!
