Birthday Greetings

Good Morning everyone, I needed a fun birthday card and the Lady Dancing always makes a great design. I added the petite cake as a hat to her head,  some candles, a few bangles on her wrists, a fashionable purse and the birthday word.

Easter Purse Tutorial

Trim off sides evenly and round the bottom corners of purse

Greetings everyone, I just couldn't resist creating another fun Spring purse design.  I have used this same technique for Christmas, Valentines, Halloween and now Easter.

Take your 8 1/2" X 11" piece of card stock and score in half then fold over.  Using a cutting mat with printed rule take a rotary cutter and ruler to cut off one side of the card.  Use the cut piece as your template to trim off the other side so each side matches.  Now you almost  have a purse shape, with scissors trim off the bottom corners to give the purse rounded edges.   Emboss with Polka Dot folder.

The Purse handle is created using the two largest Classic Oval die together and attached to back of card. (I used two white and one pink oval together so it was very stiff.

Using the Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations die attach pink piece to front of card.

Die cut Memory Box Lavish Branch in green card stock trim in half and attach to both sides of card at bottom.  Add the Delicate Blossoms and Martha Stewart Double Monarch Butterfly  and you are done.

When complete the card will stand upright.

Singing in the Rain

Good Morning everyone, just wanted to say a special hi is all my followers and everyone who stops by and is nice enough to leave a comment.  I so enjoy reading them.

Well, we had a strong wind storm last night and lost power for eight hours, wow it seems strange not being able to turn on the lights.  Looks like I need to buy some candles just in case.

I am so looking forward to Spring so my post today started with the cute Chocolate Bunny die nestled in some grass holding the Umbrella doted with yellow stickles.  I assembled the Fairy Flower Drops, but really I am not sure they are glued correctly.  I tucked in some fun eggs, and added two Fairy Flower stems with more flowers.  I embossed the background and added the clouds.  The frame was made using the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basic A.
