Happy Birthday, Wyatt!!

I can't believe Wyatt - our youngest grandson - is three years old today! Happy Birthday, Wyatt!

The theme of his birthday party yesterday was "Where the Wild Things Are." So, I found some pictures on-line and made them into this card. I cut out the little boy from a second printing of the picture and popped him up on foam squares and added him to the image. I matted with a thin border of black. The card base is ivory. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I added another picture, complete with popped-up little boy, on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Simple Sympathy

I found this very pretty paper in with my scraps the other day and decided it deserved to be used. It is ivory and black, so I used ivory cardstock. I matted the patterned paper with black. I stamped the sentiment (from Stampin' Up!) with Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I matted that with black, also, and mounted on foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

More "Card Parts"

I've had these two frames in my "card parts" for several years. I'm so happy to have finally used them. I do believe they were stamped and cut with Stampin' Up! products - probably stamped and punched. 

For this first one, I found a flower that I liked from an Inkadinkado set and stamped it in the middle. I colored it with Copics and mounted it on foam squares. The leaves were some I die-cut at our Group Gathering. I embossed the white panel with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and matted with matching coral cardstock. The sentiment is from a Papertrey set.
For this second one, I used Papertrey stamps. I again mounted on foam squares. I added a piece of black rickrack that's been sitting around for quite a while. It may have been left over from the card class we took in Des Moines in June. I added these pieces to a white panel and added to the card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

"Re-Purposed" Thanks

We received a Thank You card from our son, and I really liked it:) So, instead of tossing it, I "re-purposed" it. This is the card. I cut out the sentiment and mounted it on foam squares. I added it to a panel of the same kraft background as the sentiment. Then I just added it to a white card base. I'm happy with it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Happy Birthday, Vicki!

This is the card I made for my friend, Vicki, whose birthday was yesterday. Hope you had a great day, Vicki!

The flowers and leaves were done with dies at our Group Gathering in June and also last year. The frame was stamped with a Rubbernecker stamp. (I love the frame! Thanks for letting me use your stamp, Vicki! :) ) I added the sentiment, which is from Papertrey Ink. I cut the stamp into two pieces to allow me to fit the space better. I matted with black and added it to the card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
