Someone is getting married!

And big shocker it's not me! A friend of mine got engaged this week and I thought I would make her a cute little congrats card. I used an image from MTF stamps (I think it's called Spa Day) and added a little bling to look like an engagement ring. Everything I used was again from my stash so no clue where it came from.

Cards, cards and more cards

This weekend was the annual Rushmore Retreat put on by the ladies at Scrappin' Ladies outta Pierre. I got a lot accomplished but it never seams like I got enough accomplished. I got 5 layouts and 3 cards complete. I'll post the layouts later but here are the cards.

1. Margarita card made with some paper I found on clearance who knows how long ago, I bought like 8 sheets for some crazy reason. I used a stamp set from Made by Me/Skipping Stones Designs which I love (I think you can also buy these at Altered Art). I used some Glossy Accents on the glass and some stickles for the margarita salt. I used some green Bo-Bunny dot paper. On the inside I used a little bling as well.

2. I combined the new coffee set from Made by Me/Skipping Stone Designs with the drinks set on this card. I used some maroon dot paper I purchased at Altered Art and some versa mark ink for the drink rings. I also glossy accented my glass. It's very simple but I love how it turned out. The inside of the card says "Like a fine wine we get better with age...or rather, we feel better about our age with lots of wine! Cheers!"

3. I also made the card using the new coffee stamp set from Made by Me/Skipping Stone Designs. The paper is Flair Designs with some card stock in brown and white. I used watercolor pencils to color, added a little glossy accents so the coffee looked wet.
4. Last but not least, I made this card using some of Bo-bunny's red dot paper and the new stamp set called Party Girl from MTF stamps. I stickled her outfit and glossy accented her martini glass. The flower is by Prima and the red "ribbon" is Stampin' Up.

Thanks for lookin!

3D stars

I found a tutorial on how to make 3D stars so I thought I would give it a shot on a birthday card for a friend of mine. I love how it turned out! The only paper that I know on this card is the blue and white polka dots, it's from Close To My Heart. I think the bandanna paper was some stuff I had gotten at hobby lobby a long time ago. Again, scraps on this card as well. I used a snap from Making Memories and some leather I had in my stash for the hangy parts. I inked everything as well.

Sweet Birthday

My Aunt's birthday was coming up so I pulled this card to use. I made this at a class that was held at Altered Art so I don't know what the papers were. The stamps are by MadeByMe and can be found on e-bay. I used some glossy accents on the icing of the roll.

Thank you card

I saw something similar to this on SCS and liked it so here's what I came up with. There is 1 matching colored bling on each tree. The plate is from Memory Makers that I had in my stash and have never used.

My Favorite Things Stamps

I hosted an image swap and this image is one I got back. I love it and fits well with the sentiment I had from the same company. I sent this to one of my amazing friends Christy to just say HI. I've been doing all my cards with scraps so I don't know where the paper is from but the red is glittery and so is the blue brad.
