One of my granddaughters LOVES gymnastics, so I made her a spinner card for her 7th birthday.  Figured she and this adorable tumbling Party Panda would get along really well together.

It can be a challenge for me to find stamps that work for the guys in my life.  That’s why I love the Tim Holtz Blueprints stamps.  They are perfect for just that.

Here are 4 cards made with 4 different Blueprint images.

Is it Spring yet?!  Well according to the calendar it is.  Here are a couple of happy cards that are hoping the calendar is right!

One card is for a young friend’s birthday which is coming up soon.  The other one is for one of my granddaughters who likewise has a birthday soon.  Sunshine and rainbows for everyone!

On card one’s design most of the front portion of the card has been cut away.  Only the clouds remain.

The clouds are still big enough however to cover the sentiment inside.

Both cards have lots of die cutting and fun dimension.  Here’s the second card.

This is a card that I put in my gallery over at Splitcoaststampers last month.

The clouds were made by using the cloud die, cutting the clouds and then using the negative portion of the cut as a stencil when sponging.

Hope everyone is enjoying the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere!  (Hmmm… does that mean it is the first day of Fall in the Southern Hemisphere?)

One of my little granddaughters loves LOVES mermaids.  This was her birthday card this year.

This time the money is right on the front instead of hidden inside the card.

The bill is placed in a little pocket which was made by attaching it with shell shaped eyelets to the card base.

The mermaid pops up as you open the card.

This card was made playing around with some designer papers and a slightly different cut.  The front of the card is roughly 4″ x 4″ while the back of the card is a regular size of 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.

The flower was stamped, and water was immediately spritzed on it before the ink could dry.  This allowed the ink to react and blend with the water on some areas of the flower.

Kinda thought that once DH retired that we would settle in and there would be all kinds of time to craft away the days.  But instead we have been playing and traveling and generally having a pretty good time.  I’ve missed playing in the many challenges though, so today I decided to join in on a few of them. Smiley.CatAni

The image/sentiment panel is popped up to the same height as the yellow card “base.”  Love the interest and dimension this creates.

Here’s a quick CAS card that has been 43 years in the making.  That’s right… 43 years.  So how can I say it’s quick if it took 43 years?  hehe

Well this quick CAS card is for my hubby, and today is our 43rd wedding anniversary.

Happy us.

One of my sweet little granddaughters LOVES dogs.  Because of sibling allergies, there can be no pets in her home.  However, that does not stop her from approaching every dog she sees every where!!  She always asks the owner if she can pet their fur baby.  So when it comes to making her a birthday card, well what else would you give her but one with at least one adorable pup on it.  The stamped kind can enter her home with no worries of needing an epipen.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Her favorite color is yellow.  So what could be better than a yellow puppy, surrounded by rhinestones and popped up for some dimension.
It’s a popped up puppy! Smiley.TeeHeeAni

Isn’t this fun!  With just a couple of extra folds, this card design takes a 5-1/2″ x 11″ sized card base to a little different and happy level. Punches were used across the top and bottom edges to create the scallops and “legs” of the screen.  There is a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for those who are interested.

The rest is just lots of sweet images, die cuts, patterned papers, ribbons, lace, pearls and all that good stuff put together to make this little hello baby card.
