Happy Birthday Danielle!!

My little sister's 18th birthday was this thursday and she has been wanting me to make her a card for sooo long so I made one with her favorite animal. She loved it! :)

Little frog is cut from CAC at 4.5 in and embossed with the polka dots cuttlebug folder.

Happy Birthday is a rub on and went over with a white gel pen to make it pop more.

His belly is flocked with light green, I love flocking!!

Faux stitched around the edge, ribbon from Michaels and I popped froggy up on pop dots.

Happy Birthday Amy!!

Today is my future sister-in-law's birthday and she always loves my cards so I wanted to make something a little different for her :)

I made her an exploding box card and I LOVE the way it came out. I never made one before. I'm pretty proud of myself :)

This is the back, butterflies all around the lid.

This is the box opened up and exploded.

This is the center and the sentiment is a rub on, the label is from Lacy Labels with all the layers.

This saying is from DCWV vellum quote stack "it's all about girls", i cut the four parts and put it around the edges in order.

I popped up the label and butterflies on pop dots

Martha Stewart butterfly punch and inked with white and added pearl pen in salmon for the center.

I glued only the middle so the wings could pop up a little bit for dimension

you can't tell in the picture but the wings of the little butterflies are diamond glazed and stickles on the swirls of the border.

Stamp by Recollections and signed by yours truly :)

I hope she likes it!

My Little Cupcake

My Pink Stamper National Scrapbooking Day Challenge #1

Anything cupcake!!

I decided to do a layout of my baby girl because she is 5 months old and I haven't even started on her book yet : / ahh lol

The cupcake is cut from Create-A-Critter at 5" and the title is cut from Simply Sweet at 1.5" in coordinating colors

I used Diamond Glaze to give the cherry a shiny round look and then popped it up on some pop dots.. yummy! I embossed the frosting with cuttlebug swirl folder using my sizzix texture boutique and inked the edges with pink.

I used the blockout feature for each letter at 2" and inked the edges with black and popped up the whole word "cupcake" on pop dots on top of a ribbon that came on my diaper cake!
