Card no. 114 - Happy Birthday my Beautiful Friend!

Happy Thursday Everyone!
I have a suuuper busy week - but I love being busy ... so (((Yay!))) for me.

I have managed to squeeze in a bit of crafty time and made this little cutie for Lana's sweet little friend.

The image is by Tickled Pink Stamps - the sweet Lil' Pinkette Coraline.
She is colored with Copics & ProMarkers.
I also added Stickles (Stardust, Diamond) to the image.

The Front View

The papers I used are pretty old (I had them FORever) and I have no idea where I've got them or who they are made by. The cardstock is from Michael's - Bazzill Basics I have used a ribbon from JoAnn, a bunch of beautiful flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts, Kaiserkraft rhinestones.
I made a little pin using beads. Super easy-peasy!

The Image Detail (sorry, a little blurry)

The inside is very plain & easy - I was in a hurry to make this card and I think I made it in about an hour, which is few days less than usually.
I taped Coraline and inked just the cake and used is as a little complimentary stamp on the inside.

The Inside View

The words used are from one of those "Wordsy" sets from Hobby Lobby.

That's it from me for today!
Hope you're all are having a fabulous week!

Inspired ... using Silhouette

I have always loved the simple designs and I just adore Papertey Ink.  So, when they came out with the fabulous new collection, I was inspired.

I absolutely adore the new Cover Plate - Quatrefoil and decided to make my own ... using my Silhouette. Oh, boy! Quite the job, I tell ya! But anywhoo.... I am done.
And, I am so happy with the results!

So from this (found it using Google Image search  - keyword "quatrefoil"):

I made this:
And because I do square cards (most of the time), I decided to make it square-ish.
A little close-up:

Silhouette ROCKS!!!!
If interested in tutorial - I may post video-tutorial later .... let me know!
Have an awesome day!

Card no. 113 - You make my World that much brighter!

Oh, my! What a fantastic weekend! We had a fabulous turnout at the benefit and we raised a wonderful amount for our Foundation. An absolutely AMAZING group of people, artists, doctors, survivors, entertainers came and (I think) everyone had great time!
My sets of cards got a new home and I hope they will make someone's day when received.

Here goes my new card ...

I used the suuuuper cute Lili of the Valley image - Maisie Sitting Pretty and a butterfly from Hero Arts - Antique Engravings. I used 3D technique, that I adore so much - and learned it from Mariska at Sending you a Little Smile. Such a talented lady!

The Detail

Cardstock is from JoAnn, the DP is one of my all time favorite, My Mind's Eye - Stella and Rose. I sewed the edges, added rhinestones, lacy ribbon from Archiver's, Prima Flowers and pearly springs.
The Spellbinders I used were Labels Seventeen. 
Pretty easy. I think what took me the longest was the image :) that I colored with my Copics, ProMarkers and ShinHan markers. I also added Stickles (StarDust & Diamond).

The Front View

I hope you're enjoying this fall. It has finally cooled off here in Phoenix.
I have been super busy - I've also got a new FABULOUS job (that I am super exited about) and still keeping my old one. Of course, I am home with my girls (whenever I can) and we craft like there is no tomorrow :) My hubby is working his tushie off at the hospital, but I know he's not-so-secretly loving it.

I have many more projects to come - I have so many ideas, just not enough time (or energy - by the end of the day) to make them happen.
