Happy Day!

Happy Day! This is my interpretation of the sketch challenge this week on SCS. I made a hybrid digi card. I printed and cut my image and popped it up on dimensional foam tape in place of the main image panel.  I added a button for the circle element. I used digi papers for my paper strip panel. They are printed directly onto the main card frame, along with the sentiment at the bottom. Challenges: Crafty Creations – Happy Birthday Have a creative day! Deena

Tangerine Dream Birthday

December 2nd already!!  Only 23 days till Christmas! WHAAaaaat? Well I thought it might be a nice change to show something not Christmas related since everywhere we turn soon, that is all we’ll see! Not that I have anything against Christmas! It just gets a little overwhelming by times don’t you think?  I recently made a bundle of birthday cards and thought I’d start by sharing this one today.  I punched 6 squares in coordinating patterned papers and used a lovely tangerine colored cardstock to layer them on.  I then stamped the happy birthday sentiments over the papers and added a few tiny gems here and there.   3 simple steps really, and I love the results!

Oh, My! Melting Snowman

Have you noticed that I love to make CAS cards?  Well I do!! Today’s CAS card made me laugh, and I hope it will make you smile too! The inside sentiment reads: I’m so sorry I missed your birthday! The image is one of my own ACN digis now available in my SHOP.  I created the sentiment using My Memories Software and printed the card front. It’s popped up using dimensional tape on a red panel and mounted to a white card base.

First Birthday

We celebrated my Great Nephew’s 1st birthday last weekend!  He is so adorable!!  I thought I’d show you the card I made for him with a little help from My Memories Software. This is actually a ONE LAYER card, but I’ve used shadowing to help create the look of layers.  I also added 3 gems for some sparkle. And here is the little prince with his cake! Have a great day!  Deena
