Spring is in the Air...

Good morning Scrappy Friends, spring is in the air and the flowers are blooming! I'm here sharing a card I made from a request from my Aunt, a card for her sister. The perfect sentiment came from the Pink by Design stamp set 'Sibling Love.'
This is an A2 sized card, the flowers are from My Creative Time, Flower Petal Dies and placed with dimensionals.  The brads are by Recollections and the ribbon is fom American Crafts.
All the cardstock is from Recollections and I 'Inked it Pink' ;) using a pink ink pad  I had in my stash. Lastly, the border punch is by ek success.
Hope you enjoyed my card.  Till next time Scrappy Friends!  Have a great weekend!

My Birthday Month Too...

Good morning Scappy Friends!  I just wanted to share with you a purple/amethyst birthday cake card I made. .  Upon looking through my stash I found a paper pack that was purple and decided I wanted to make a cake that looked like a cake of fondant.  I think it came out pretty nice.

The birthday cake came from the Cricut Cartridge: Wrap It Up, page 31 and was cut at 5 inches.  I ran the base  portion through my Cuttlebug (portion of the candles only though) using my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I heat embossed the yellow first and then put some red embossing on top of that and this was the outcome.
For my sentiment I used the Teeny Tag Greeting Stamp Set by My Creative Time.  I pierced the base and used this Purple Recollections brad I had.

The paper I used was from the Holly Robinson Peete collection, didn't know she was a paper enthusiast.   =) 
Hope you enjoyed your February!  Happy Birthdy to all the February babies out there, hope you had a good one.

Challenge Me Monday - #148 Be My Valentine & Monday Challenge #86 - For Your Sweetheart

Happy Valentine's Week!  It has been an extremely busy month of February. As I said in my last quick post I just got a Cameo and I haven't got to play with it yet!  Boo!  My Cameo was missing a working part so I am waiting for a replacement but I have been watching tutorials and went to a demo so I'm confident I will enjoy it as much as I do the Cricut.  No worries my Cricut, I will still use you =)

 Here is a Valentines Day card I gave to my bestie.
  It was cut from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge.
I cut Hello Kitty at 3.5 inches, the ribbon came from my stash and if I remember it correctly it was from a bow from a gift from last Christmas. ( I don't waste, I recycle) The base of the card and the black mat are both recollections.  The red background paper is not from a paper stack but from loose papers ( I want to say it's Echo Park but not 100% sure). 
I for sure love Glossy Accents and every chance I get I use it.  To doll HK up, I applied Glossy Accents on her bow and her nose.  Lastly, I added rhinestones to finish off the card.  
I hope you had a wonderful and Happy Valentines with your loved ones.  Have a great week. Till next time. 
xoxo, Mina
