Mustache Envy Greeting Card


Hello There and welcome to my blog. Thank you for stopping by.
Today I am sharing a masculine Birthday greeting card with you.

I am still coordinating all my card fronts, card insides and envelopes. I am really liking how they are turning out! I hope you enjoy my post and learn a trick or two. 

This card style is a Gate-fold card. If you would like to try making a Gate-fold card and want to watch a tutorial I have linked the tutorial I used under my Tutorial tab here.

I kept this card pretty simple by using pattern papers and coordinating stamps


Here is a look at the inside. I stamped the mustaches in a lighter shade of ink and then stamped the birthday sentiment on top. You can see the list of products I used below.



Products:
Carta Bella Giddy Up 6 x6 paper pad
Recollections cream card stock
Memory Box Stitched rectangle dies
Recollection Life Is Stamp set

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Red Themed Pocket Letter

Hi There. Happy Wednesday!
So glad you stopped by and hope you've been well.
This is a pocket Letter I made for a swap on Pocket Letter pals.
The theme was red.

I used lots of my small punches for embellishments
and yuou'll see below some of the interactive elements of the pocket letter.


I made this little folder by cutting a square of paper and then scoring it and trimming the inside of the pockets at an angle.



Have a wonderful day!

Watermelon Suspended Spinner card

Hello and welcome to All Things Beautiful!
Today I am showcasing a Peek-A-Boo Shutter card.

This is my first attempt at making one of these types of cards. If you'd like to try this technique you can find the tutorial I used under my tutorial tab here.

So for this card i made the watermelon way to big to spin. Lesson learned....n\make the spinner element small enough to make the full rotation however, I liked the look of this card so much I figured I'd just leave it suspended without the spin.


I them added coordinating elements inside the card and coordinated the envelope.


Products:
Gina K Designs Cherry Red card stock & ink
Gina K Designs Jellybean Green & Black Onyx ink
My Minds Eye Remarkable 6 x 6 paper stack
Memory Box Stitched Rectangle dies
Cricut watermelon cut out from the Doodlepop cartridge cut at 2 1/4 inches
Catherine Pooler Rockin Red ink
Stampin' Up All About Everything stamp set


If you give this suspended spinner technique a try leave a comment below letting me know. I'd love to see a picture of your card creation!

I hope you have a great weekend!

Watercolor Cards

 Welcome to today's card post! I am so glad you stopped by
I hope you are enjoying the winter weather and staying warm.

I don't make too many watercolor cards but I got this new stamp set from Simon Says Stamp with lots of circles and I thought it might be fun to make some abstract art on my card using watercolors and the stamp set.

 

I am a very A type personality ans usually my abstract is very planned but today I let the watercoloe paint take control.


I made 2 panels using different colors


Have a fabulous day!
