Mary's Birthday

Can you believe it...TWO cards in TWO days!  WOW!!  This card is for our niece-in-law's (is that a name???) birthday.  I chose Cowgirl Dottie from Bugaboo Stamps, I've had her for several years, but Jodi just brought her over to the new store and she is on sale for $1.50 this week!  She is colored with copics, clear star gelly roll pen on her belt and blouse, and cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangle die.  The layout is for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps August Sketch.  The pink handkerchief paper and cowgirl paper are by The Paper Studio, scalloped paper from Doodlebug Design kraft in color 6x6 pad, brown cs from my stash, and light pink cs from Craft Smith pinks and reds 12x12 pad.  Brown pearls from Recollections, walnut stain distress ink, sentiment from Stampin' Up! Bootiful Occasions, cut out with SB classic oval die, and matted with SB classic scalloped oval die.

Karleigh's Birthday

Today's card is for my niece's birthday next week...she will be 15!! I chose Peace Cat from Stamp On It (QKR Stampede's store).  I colored her with copics, glossy accents on her glasses, and silver heat embossed her necklace.  She is cut out with Stamps of Life stitched circle die and matted with SB lacy die.  The layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge #119.  Digital paper from  Kellymedinastudios on Etsy (PERFECT with this image) and cs by core'dinations minty fresh pack.  The sentiment is computer generated with free pawprint and peace sign clip art, cut out with SB  circle die and matted with SB scalloped die.

Scroll to the bottom of this post to see what I've been doing the last couple weeks.  My daughter started her 1st teaching job yesterday (HOORAY!) and I have been kept busy cutting things on my Cameo for her!

Billy's Birthday Card

This is my 2nd post today...that NEVER happens!  But to be fair I did make the baby card yesterday, just didn't get it posted.  We are celebrating our son's birthday this weekend (it's Aug 4th), because they live 3 hrs away and he has this Sunday off.  This image is Video Game Guy from Bugaboo Stamps and is PERFECT for Billy!  I was one of their top 3 winners a few weeks ago and this is one of the images I chose:)  He is colored with copics and cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die.  The layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge #116.  Striped digital paper is from Doodle Pantry (no longer in business), polkadot from my stash, lime green by Bo Bunny, and blue cs by Craft Smith blues 12x12 pad.  I googled the film strip, imported it into Silhouette Studio, traced, and cut out, the "candy dots" are perler beads that I melted.  Happy Birthday sentiment is a freebie at Birds Cards, cut out with The Stamps of Life large stitched circle die, and matted with SB large circle die.

Baby Girl Card

Hubby needed a card for a baby shower at work, so off to Pinterest I went to find one I could CASE.  I found this one by Queen Creations along with a tutorial and directions for cutting it out.  I used "Something for Baby" stamp and die set from Stampin' Up!   CS from Hobby Lobby, Color Box Twilight ink pad, Memento black ink pad, Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo distress ink, and orange Copic marker.  SB Label One die for the bottom of the dresser cut out and brads from my stash.  I did straighten the two out that are crooked in this pic!  I made an envelope with the Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers and followed the tutorial by Melissa at Silhouette School for the envelope liner.
