My Sister's Birthday Card

My sister has a great yard filled with tons of flowering plants and trees.  She has a garden of fruits and veges throughout  her yard as well.  She literally removed all her grass and did plants and paths everywhere.  So for her birthday, I did a Strawberry Pop Up Card!  She's got a ton of those too!

The card is part of a set at and I made it on my Cricut using MTC software.

I post on Facebook and forget to put things here!

Birthday Boys Gifts

Three brothers, three birthdays and they all love sports, so I made three hats and filled them with gift cards, Big League Chewing gum and sour patch kids!

The logo is two of the brother's baseball team's logo.
I purchased the file from and cut it all on my Cricut.

August Stamp of the Month - What a Hoot!

This is the stamp of the month for August:

This is the silly card I made:

You can see from the top shot below that I used foam tape to make the eyes, wings and flowers stick out.  The flowers and wings have foam tape only on the top so they are raising off the page.

(you can see them tomorrow with the new catty online)

I used the fat side to do his body and the small end to do the wings.
Also the flowers are with the markers too.  I used just our regular inks to stamp the image.
I just didn't color over the stamped image a lot.

I random stamped the pumpkin on the bamboo paper.

Jumping thru the blog hop you should be coming from Katy's blog, if not, start here and continue and you will make a complete circle.

Here is the stamp set:

First Card with random stamping and washi tape creating bling!
This second card I white embossed the fireworks to look like raised flowers and then sponged yellow ink over it softly.  I also added some strong yellow lines using our water color pencils.  The green grass and stems are all water color pencils.  The grass was blended, not the stems.

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!!
If you came from Sarita's blog, then you are going the right direction, if you are starting here, 
that's ok, keep hopping and you will make a complete circle.

This month's stamp set is:

Wild About Love

Sooo perfect for Valentine's Day Cards! I made 2!!!

Ok, now some of these stamps I can't just put on anyone's card/envelope 
- so I saved the best for the hubby!
The Wild Thing is raised with foam squares and 
the hearts were stamped with textured stamp set and sponged.

I put this in the inside and that on the envelope!

THIS IS MY DAUGHTER'S CARD!!! Do ya get it????
Bling on the flower!
TIP:  When cutting out things with your cricut to go with our stamps CUT MORE THAN ONE!!!
(my sister consultant Kathy B reminded me of this)
Why? Not just for mistakes, but for using later! I did a bunch of sizes and shapes and filled a whole page.
I put them into a drawer for use later - some of these shapes will be used in future SOTM stamp sets!!
