Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone, it's my day to share a project over at Craftin Desert Divas.  I have a super cute birthday gift set to share with you today.  Of course, I used two of Tara's amazing stamp sets to create my project!   Not only is it Animal Week, but it's Throwback Thursday!
So, I created some fun projects that include and animal AND used some of Tara's older stamp sets.  I can't wait to show you!  Here it is:

Don't you love it??!!  My niece turned 4 this weekend, and like a smart girl, she is obsessed with Hello Kitty, so I created her a custom birthday gift set.  The Hello Kitty's are both from my Hello Kitty Greeting Cricut Cartridge.  The cardstock is from Recollections and the patterned paper is from an old strack from Michaels.  

I found the perfect sentiments on Happy Celebrations.  Below, you can see both the card, and a close up of the tag, so you check out the great fonts, and the lovely stamp I used for the tag!

I used the Happy Celebrations and Tag It stamp sets to create this project.  You can buy your own in the Craftin Desert Divas Shop HERE.

Be sure to stop by Craftin Desert Divas everyday.  There is always something going on, from Linky Parties, to Blog Hops, from Stamp Releases to Inspiration!  See you there :)

Thanks a Bunch

Happy Tuesday all!  I am SO over winter!  We have inches of ice on our streets and the snow seems to be never ending.  I have decided I need to pull myself out of the funk by making some spring cards.  I just recently got my hands on Craftin Desert Divas "Blooming For You" stamp set.  it is PERFECT for spring cards!!  Here is what I created today.

I am loving this pretty flower pot card.  I found it in the Silhouette Store #8696.  The paper is Recollections, or from my scrap box.  I inked the edges of the flowers with my Distress Inks.  The sentiment is from Blooming for You, and I think it is perfect with this cute little flower pot.  There are some awesome sentiments on this set, I know you will love it!

I'll be back soon with another springy project.  This winter has to be over soon, right??

I Love You S'more

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm back today to share another summer card, cause I am SO done with this awful winter!!  I am sharing another card that I created for my kids when they go to camp.  I really loved the "I love you s'more" sentiment from CDD's The Great Outdoors stamp set, but as the mum of two, you know I had to make one for each of them.  Here they are:

Cute aren't they??  I embossed the base with a Sizzix wood grain embossing folder.  The little s'mores are from SVG Cutting Files Kawaii Smore file.  Here's a close up of the pink card, so you can see all the details.

The little dots are from SU and the paper is a mix of Recollections and CTMH.  The ribbon is from Michaels.  My fabulous sentiment is from CDD "The Great Outdoors" set.  It has some really fabulous sentiments on it.

I am sure my munchkins will love getting this cute card while they are away at camp!  Have a great weekend.

Hot Diggity Dog

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I can hardly wait for the end of winter, so I am continuing with my "summery" projects.  Today I'm sharing a shaped card that I created using my Silhouette, and a file from SVG Cutting Files, AND I used one of Tara's fabulous stamps.  Here it is:

Do ya love it??  I know I do.  The hot dog is from SVG Cutting Files Junk Food set.  I shadowed it in my Silhouette DE program and created the shape card.  Inked up the bun with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and did some doodling with my Sakura Jelly Roll pen.  The sentiment is from CDD's The Great Outdoors.  It's perfect for camping and summer projects.

I will be back on Friday with another cute project using The Great Outdoors, so be sure to pop by and see it!!

Ribbon Linky Party

Happy Monday everyone!  We are mid-way through the Linky Party over at Craftin Desert Divas and it is Team B's Day to inspire you.  Tara challenged us to create a project with RIBBON.  I really like to use ribbon on my projects, I think it's a fun, simple way to dress them up.  I decided to make 2 different projects using ribbon.  Here is what I created:

Project #1 - 

The kids had a snow day last week, and we made cookies.  They were delicious Skor Bits cookies - yummo!!  We decided to give a few away as little gifts.  We packed them up and then I made a cute little tag, stamped with a sentiment from Short and Sweet Tags, that I tied on with come pink ribbon.  They were perfect little presents!

Project #2 - 

I love this cute little card!  It is for my daughter, for Valentines Day.  I ADORE Tara's Perfect Pair stamp set, and decided to make Valentines cards for my family with it.  You'll see the rest of the cards in the coming weeks.  The umbrella is from SVG Cutting Files and I cut it in her favorite color, purple.  The light pink ribbon is from Michael's, and I'm using it in my favorite way - to help transition from one paper to another.

Here are the stamp sets that I used:


If you love the stamp sets I used as much as I do, you can buy your own at the Craftin Desert Divas Store.

I hope you all come play with us!  There is still one week left to link up.  We have 2 amazing sponsors for this Linky Party:
