- Most if the die elements are from Tonic Studio
- The records were made from a circle punch and dies
- The front sentis are older stamps from Stampin' Up
- The back senti is a wood stamp from Make An Impression that I was surprised to notice that the fonts were practically the same! That was fun!
- The corner die is from Heartfelt Creations

Waterfall Card!

Hey crafty friends!

I have a waterfall card to share today.

Entering in these challenges:

Crafty Creations - #395 AAG
Crafty Gal Corner - #197 3+ Layers
Crafty Sentiments - AG
Creative Moments - #173 AAG
Digi Choosday - #31 AAG
Double D - Birthday
Polkadoodles - #30 AAG
The Paper Shelter - #393 AG

 Wow! I have been on a birthday card roll lately and this one is my 4th in a row.

This was made from a waterfall card kit from Crafter's Companion that I got on HSN, but I believe is now sold out, but they actually have it on sale on the US Crafter's Companion website for $8.49. Which is really a good buy because you get 4 ea of 6 patterns, which is 24 cards, that comes out to .35 a card. If your like me and add the 6.95 shpg, (+ 6.95 = 15.44 / 24) comes out to .64 a card, which is still a pretty good deal I think. And you get everything you need in the kit to make a basic card plus instructions.
- I added the white ribbon on the pull mechanism.
- Also the balloon, cup cake and sentiment are from Anna Griffin's birthday stickers and sentiments pak on the inside of the card.
- The pink, word patterned paper is from Crafter's Companion's Spring is in the Air, 12x12 paper pak and was cut with a Spellbinders Labels 20 die.

Grad Card

Hey blogger friends!

I can't believe it's been almost 2 mos since my last post.
Guess I've been in a slump lately with no desire to make anything.

But hopefully after today I think I'll be making up for that starting with this graduation card I made for my son who's graduation from the Aeronautics/Astronautics Program at the University of Washington in June.
He has 2 graduating ceremonies, 1 for the U of W, and 1 for the A/A Program so I'll be making another card for the 2nd one too.

Plus there's my husband's B-day and Fathers day all within that week - whew!

Entering in these Challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - #10 AAG (Always Anything Goes)

CRAFT - #514 Father's Day/Male
Crafting From the Heart - #244 AAG

Polkadoodles - #21 AAG
QKR Stampede - #349 AAG

As with most of my ideas these days, I got this from Pinterest.
The U of W's colors are purple and gold and even tho this came out really well, I think I want to make another one and switch up the colors and make purple the main color just to see which one I like best.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Afternoon crafty card making friends!

I have a St Patrick's Day card to share today.

A Gem of a Challenge - #5 AAG
Allsorts - #511 Favorite Stamp, Image or Die

Cardz 4 Guys - #125 To Die For

QKR Stampede - #339 AAG
Tuesday Throwdown - #429 Good Luck

I love St Patrick's Day and 4 leaf clovers or shamrocks. And even though I'm not Irish in anyway, I guess 4 leaf clovers remind me of my mom.
I remember as a kid, she would always be out in our yard looking for 4 leaf clovers and even though it took some time, she somehow managed to find one or two. I found this one in our yard several years ago and don't know why I taped it to the lid of one of my jar candles, but there it is and when I look at it, I think of my mom. LOVE YOU MOM!!! Can't wait to see you again in heaven!

 
Anyway, I saw a card like this, as usual, on Pinterest, thought it was adorable and decided to give it a shot. The original one was 4 1/4" x 5 1/2, but I wanted it a little bigger so I started out with a 6 x 6",  and cut one side down to 5 1/2" x 6" and I literally just eyeballed it, made a few changes, and here's what I came up with.
