Friends leaving work

Today was a sad day for me as 10 friends at work had their last day today. I went to the dollar tree and found these cute faux mason jars.

I cut apart different silk flowers, arranged them and added a sign from the circut Christmas cartridge. The signs shinny pole fit in the vase perfectly! I typed up the dedication to each person, print, cut, and attached to the sign. The sign is two layers. I used the seaside greetings stamp set from CTMH to make the front of the cards. I used water color pencils and blending pen also. Card base is Martha Stewart wedding invitation kit.  I added a hand written note and attached over those white glue strip lines.

Thank you for stopping by!

4th ofJuly nails made easy!

I brought all three of the patrioticjamberry nail wraps. The designs were too cute to pass up. I mixed all three together. My thumb is star spangled. http://www.tictactoes.jamberrynails.net/product/star-spangled#.VZaWU3A8KK0  it is a Beautiful flag of the American flag! My pointer finger ring finger and pinkie are all from the mixed mani patriot. I think the striped design could be worn anytime. http://www.tictactoes.jamberrynails.net/product/patriot#.VZaV7XA8KK0
The bird finger is kaboom. It is a silver metallic background with red,white, and blue fireworks. Would be pretty anytime as well. http://www.tictactoes.jamberrynails.net/product/ka-boom#.VZaWpXA8KK0

Have a safe and fun 4th!

50th anniversary card

My aunt and uncles 50th anniversary is today, so I made them a card. I could not find my cuddle bug. The orginal design I had in mind was a white pattern embossed with swirls and the heart stamped in gold and heat embossed gold, but I couldn't find my heating embossing set either. I cut out a bit of paper from the year noted set CTMH had in January. I used my score board to score lines all the way down the length of paper and then turned it and scored down the other way. It make somewhat of a plaid. Then I used the starburst sticker from that same set and popped it up with scrap chip board. I used cornstarch to take away the extra sticky of the sticker exposed. Then I used liquid glass to glue the gold stamped flower heart to the shiny sticker and I drew a 5 with permanent marker. The card is simple, but I think the patterned paper with the gold was a pretty effect. 50 is the golden anniversary. 

The inside is simple too. I finished this early in the morning. I am in a hurry to go enjoy their party!

Graduation cards

Hi, I had been locked out of my blog with password changes. I hope the problem is fixed because I have a ton of updates coming straight from CTMH convention. For today, I want to share these graduation cards I made for my second cousins that just graduated high school. I used black and gray cricut paper that's comes in the 12*24 pack on cricut.com. The gold is canary paper fundamentals CTMH paper and white us CTMH with daisy. All cuts from Wild Card cartridge and cut by cricut explore. The canary paper that a shiny crack ground with raised chevrons. I am going to put some money inside the diploma.
