Make A Wish Card

I obviously love this layout as I have used it twice before (coffee card and good-bye card).  I needed some quick, but cute birthday cards.  I bought these dimensional candle stickers awhile ago with the intention of making some cards, so they were the perfect embellishment.  The sentiment is a Stampin'Up stamp.  I added a few Stampin' Up sequin stars and washi tape to the hand drawn border.  I think they are very festive.  What do you think?  Do you have a "go to" card layout?

Best Friends Card

So, this card was for a swap.  I was pressed for time so I decided to use some leftover stickers from my scrap basket.  I found a perfect piece of patterened paper and used a cocoa piece of card stock for the base.  The card is a flip flap card, very cute and easier than it looks.  I think my partner will like it.     ~Marie

Reading Challenge : Update

Reading has been challenging lately....between prom, graduation, new puppies, tryign to sell our house, and trying to prepare to move, well, there just isn't much free time.  I am currently on the search for my next book as I am still determined to finish the challenge.  I tried to read two books that I just could not get into, so....suggestions welcome ;)      ~Marie

Good Bye Card

As summer begins we have friends that are moving and so does my son.  I needed a quick card, not much crafting time right now as we are preparing to move.  I found the clip art of the bottle online, no source info with picture, and I thought it was cute and would be perfect.  I lifted the layout from my previous coffee card.  I love it...I printed three copies of the bottle and then layered up certain parts to give it dimension.  The border is hand drawn.  I added a few sequin stars and some washi tape, done!  Sometimes simple is best.

Graduation Girl in Purple

Another graduation card using an older image from Saturated Canary; unfortunately, she is no longer available.  Like before, I colored her to resemble the graduate. I decided to make a box card so it could be used as a decoration.  I really wanted to make it festive so I used rhinestone numbers and tulle to add to the box.  I love it...I hope she does.  ~Marie

Hats Off Graduation Cards

These were so fun, and easy, to make.  I usually hate making shaker cards in mass; however, this time I had the WRMK Fuse Tool.  I love this tool.  I made 12 shaker cards in an hour...unheard of!  As these cards are for boys I kept them clean and simple.  The image in the shaker is a piece of clip art I found and, of course, they are done in the school colors.  The pennants are stickers from Jolee's.  I really like these and I can not wait to use my Fuse Tool again.  

Have your tried the Fuse tool yet?

Blue Bird Card

Cute CAS card I made for a recent swap.  I love how they came out.  I used the Stampin' Up Bird Builder punch.  all the colored card stock is from my scrap stash.  Love when I can use up scraps! This card just makes me smile.

Back to graduation cards!
