Under the Sea Thank Yous

Made these for my friend Jae's daughter's (Erika's)b-day party thank notes . The theme was Under the Sea. I was inspired by my fellow crafter, Marti/Pezadoodle (see blogs I follow). She posted a mermaid card on her blog that made me want to make these. Check it out!! Her mermaid is absolutely adorable! Thanks, Marti, for the inspiration!!

Card and matching Envie

I made this card for my son's teacher who just got engaged on Valentine's Day! I have been dying to play with acetate in my cuttlebug and use ink. Sooooooooo, I embossed the acetate with the swirl embossing folder; painted the top with mint green acrylic paint which I wiped mostly off w/a papertowel just before it was completely dry. I used a black Stazon ink pad and rubbed it on the back side of the acrylic; the sentiment is a clear sticker on its own acetate (which I left on); I adheared that down with mint green heart eyelets to white cs and matted on black cs edged with my wave blade on my cutter; punched a square in the acetate and mounted all on the white card; I die cut multiple size squares frames out of white cs and embossed with swirls---then rubbed black ink pad over embossed parts; I framed the square cut out with one of these square frames; placed the metal diamond ring embellishment (which I had rubbed slighted with the mint green acyrlic paint for effect) in center of punched out square. Finally, I ran the envie thru the cuttlebug folder and added some scraps from the project to decorate it.

Valentines for the kiddos

Here are my valentines for my daughter and son. Used my cuttlebug to emboss and die cut the heart love postage stamp which I embellished with a white ink pen. Embossed the pink glossy paper with a hearts fiskars plate. Added the pink polka dot ribbon to complete it. In both cards I used corragated cardboard which I inked with matching ink pads. For the blue card I embossed the heart and background paper with a fiskars musical note plate. Tied the heart on with raffia. Added musical note eyelets to the sentiment.

Pink Girly B-day Card

Okay, so I disappeared there for awhile, sorry. But I am back. Here is the Pink Girly B-day I made for my daughter's friend. I embossed the pink glossy paper then sanded it for make the white show thru. I cut and embossed the cupcake postage stamp then useda pink ink pad on it for effect. Also edged the entire card with same ink pad. Used scallop border punch on right side of card and added pink dots with a pen. Added the pink w/white polka dot ribbon and I was done.

This is the card I quickly made to present my son with his birthday present---guitar lessons! The stars were stamped and punched by Sheryl---using the SU stamp set with coordinating punch ( All I did was cut the rockstar cs and adhere a piece of black cs with a lip onto it. Printed out the message on cream cs and cut to size; added the other two stars as a "pull" to pull it out. My son loved it too! :)
