Here’s a birthday card for another granddaughter.  She LOVES purple.

I just love this magical butterfly with its gilded wire, rhinestones, beads and glitter!

Stamping and distressing were carried on inside the card as well.

September is birthday month for my twin granddaughters.  I love making their birthday cards.. the same but different.  The difference is all about the color.  I have a turquoise/teal girl and an all out lover of everything pink girl.  So their cards, although the same design, reflect their personal color favorites.

The flowers were made with daisy punches.  The leaves are die cut.

I usually forget to add some fun to the envelopes.  But, I actually remembered this time!

These rubber band butterflies are wound up tight and placed inside the card.  When the card is opened, the butterfly comes fluttering out.  Just a little added surprise for some fun.

Today’s card is yet another creation that works for everyone including the guys.  It was super quick and easy to make, too!

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The die cut leaf has been distressed/sponged around the edges.  It is popped up on foam tape and placed on a small embossed square of card stock which matches the card base.

A little bit of texture..  A little bit of dimension..  Love it!

This card can be used as a sympathy card or as an apology card when goof-ups happen.

As autumn approaches, I love that the warm oranges and yellows along with the deep greens can once again be used to match the season.  A black metallic heart clip finishes off the design.

With a hubby and four sons I’m always needing a card for one occasion or another that is suitable for a guy.  When I saw this bridge image I knew it would fit the bill to make some cards for just that.  I think a clean and simple design is usually best suited for that need as well.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Part of the sentiment is popped up on tape to give some dimension to a relatively simple design.

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.

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?)

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.
