Mousy Beach

Good Morning!

This card is for House Mouse Monday Challenge anything but square or anything goes! I thought this would be a fun card to do since so many people will be headed to the beach this Memorial Day weekend here on Hilton Head Island.

Hope you have a very blessed day!

Rainbow Birthday!

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

I am continuing to work on my summer birthday cards.  Most of the birthdays fall in June and July so I am trying to stay on top of the special occasions! Today I am using the little rainbow in a shaker card.

Designer Steps:

 1.  Using the Rainbow with Clouds die cut it out on white card stock
 2.  Use your favorite markers and color the rainbow.  I used Copic markers
 3.  Use ink to shade the clouds with blue
 4.  Cut 2 Scallop Stitched Squares in white cards stock.  I used the third from the largest square.  After I cut out Scalloped Square I cut the centers square.  I used the 4th from the largest Double Stitched Square to do that
 5.  Glue clear plastic between the two frame and then glue the rainbow and clouds to the frame
 6.  Add the rhinestones behind the clear window and then pop it up to the card
7.  Using the happy phrase die cut 2 of them out and glue together before gluing it to the card.  Stamp the word Birthday in black the cut out and glue to the card as shown

Good Morning Friends

I just love all of the Disney princess cartoons and this new release reminds me of all of those special fairytales! If you go to our store right now they are on sale for 25% off!  Please take some time to check them out.

Design Steps:
 1.  Using the Princess Carriage die cut all the pieces out with purple, pink, dark pink and yellow card stock

 4.  Using the Princess Dress Up die cut out the girl using dark pink, purple, yellow and tan.  Shade the pieces and them assemble them
 5.  Using the Fairytale Princess die cut out the words "fairytales do come true."  I used black fun foam with an adhesive backing.  I took off the waxy paper protecting the sticky surface from each of the words and sprinkled fine gold glitter over the sticky side.  I then burnished the glitter so it would adhere completely
 6.  Use a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of DP and glue the words to the top as shown

 7.  Glue the DP to a A2 black card base
8.  Add a piece of black card stock to the bottom to resemble rolling hills.  Pop dot the Princess and Carriage to the card
