Stenciled Birthday

I just "happened" across this little stencil a while back, and it's been sitting on my table waiting to be used. I stenciled it three times on this border and matted with green. The sparkly butterflies were cut with a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The card measures 4 x 9 inches and fits into a legal-sized envelope. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Sparkly Thanks - and Happy Fourth!!

Happy Independence Day to my American readers!

I die-cut this "THANKS" piece in Des Moines and finished it into this card. The die cuts all the black that you see. I cut the white piece to fill the space.

I used a Memory Box stencil for the leaves and a Memory Box die to cut the flowers out of sparkly cardstock. The centers are sparkly enamel dots. I didn't have any small enough for the small flowers, so I cut some with a die.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

JOFY Birthday

When Harriet was here, she brought this stamp by JOFY. Here are the two cards I made with it. I colored them both with Copics. The sentiments on these cards are from Papertrey Ink. 
The purple piece on this second one was embossed with a Cuttlebug border folder.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Another Sparkle Birthday

Another die-cut card using this Memory Box die. It's so pretty! 

I did this one using white, and then added my very sparkly glitter cardstock underneath. Again the "Sparkle" sentiment and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly with a black gem. The sentiment is mounted on foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

July Calendar Page

Wow - it can't REALLY be July already, can it??? :) I guess it is, so here is my calendar page for July. I think I used this stamp a few years back, too.

I colored the stamp with markers and then stamped the image. I drew blue along the edge and matted with red. The Image and sentiment are from Stampin' Up!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
