Birthday Princess Card

I had this really cute stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs that I wanted to use.  My granddaughters' birthdays have all passed when I purchased it a couple of weeks ago, but I decided to make a card with it anyway.  I will probably donate the card to one of the many charitable causes that collect hand made cards for their patrons to send to loved ones!!  Anyway..I wanted to do something different, which is my new personal challenge..so I decided to make a window card.  I used Spellbinder dies to make this card, as well as papers & ribbon from my stash.  The castle image & sentiments inside & out are from the Our Daily Bread Design "Special Girl" stamp set. Hope you like it!

Birthday Blessings

Well I finally got around to trying a new type of card...I'm always wanting to try something new, but somehow never get around to it!  For all of you experienced card makers out there, this will seem a little silly to you!  I was ordering a new background stamp from Just Rite Stamps when I saw their Friday challenge to make an easel card. The only hitch...you had to use one of their stamps.  Well right now I only own one of their stamp sets..."Celebration Labels One & Bracket Borders One".  That's when I decided come hell or high water, I was going to make an easel card using that stamp set!!  So here is what I came up with...it took me about six hours...going back and forth about what papers, colors, etc. to use...but I thought it turned out pretty good!!  All the papers are from my stash as well as the bow.  Going from the back forward, here are the layers.  The large ivory die cut in the back is Spellbinder's Decorative Labels One.  I used the Celebration Labels One stamp with Memento's "Bamboo Leaves" ink on it. The rust colored paper was cut out with Spellbinder's Labels Twenty Two.  Next is a smaller Decorative Labels One die cut in ivory, stamped with the Just Rite Labels One sentiment in Memento's Rich Cocoa.  The "Celebrate" sentiment is from the same set, also stamped with Rich Cocoa.  The leaves were cut with My Creative Time's Piles of Smiles set, and I chalked the edges with brown chalk. Here are pictures of my card showing the front, side, and inside.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!

Life Is Like Riding A Bicycle

Hello Everyone!!  I recently purchased this rubber stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I didn't know what I was going to do with it, and I usually purchase "Occasion" stamps so that I can use them for multiple purposes, but this image just struck me as so cute..I just wanted to color it up right away!  What sealed the deal in my purchase was the bicycle sentiment...so emphatically true!!  I can't for the life of me remember the Cricut cartridge I used to cut out the green frame!  The black frame is the outermost die from Spellbinder's Gold Rectangles One.  All the papers & ribbon are from my stash.   Anyway....I think I'm going to send it to the "I Feel The Love Project".  You can create cards to send to them with a blank white card stock inside, so that homeless families in the shelter can write their own personal message & send it out to a loved ones!!  How cool is that!!!  So here is my card...hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!!
