Happy Friday to you!! Where did the Month of May go? Time flies when your having fun!!! This is the last card using the crayon and embossing folder. I used the blue and green CS on the right for this card.
|Here is all four cards together.|
|Here is all four cards together.|
|I used die cuts and punches to make the embellishments.|
I used scrap paper to make the card. Yeah.
|The top left piece was the first one I did and you can|
see I didn't use enough crayon.
|For the first card I used the green and orange CS on the left.|
|I am sending these cards to the OWH so I didn't use any 3-D or bling.|
Instead I made my own embellishments with punches and paper.
|I took white CS and added inks using a sponge. |
Then I stamped different images and sayings to the cards.
|This is how I came up with the card idea I did for OWH|
posted on May 20th. Which are MUCH better
then these cards!!! LOL
|Inside of the cards.|
|The butterfly is make using two different dies.|
The first die is the background of the butterfly
and the second is the top or overlay of the butterfly.
Of course Memory Box has several different over lays
so I purchased two different ones. You can't have
to many butterfly overlays...LOL
|Using my tape gun I added tape to the over lay to|
attach it to the background butterfly. I then added
the glitter. For the body of the butterfly I used the
Versamark and embossing power to make it shine.
|The purple CS is embossed with butterflies.|
|Inside of the card.|
|The stamp sets are from CTMH.|
|I added ribbon and punched out a flower.|
|Since we can't use glitter or large 3-D (bling) I punched|
a piece of black CS for the middle of the flower. I add
Verismark and embossing powder to it. Using the heat
gun it gave the center a shinny glow to it.
|This is the first card I made and after I glued down the |
yellow flowers I realized they had glitter on them. So
I ended up making the other cards with the black ribbon.
The black ribbon looks MUCH better so my mistake
of using glitter flowers was a good one......LOL
|The music notes are die cuts and the hat is a sticker.|
|I punched out a black circle and attached the UNM|
envelope sticker to make a embellishment.
|The silver paper is stamped with a Music background stamp.|
|I embossed some silver paper for the back ground of the card.|
|I stamped and cut out the embellishments. The cap is a|
store bought embellishment.
|Inside the card|
|This is the other card I made using the same cuttings|
and just changing the opening on the bottom of the card.
|I added Owl embellishment to this one.|
|I am going to make multiples of the same card to reach|
my 100 card goal. OWH is in need of "Miss you"
and "Thinking of you" cards.
|The giraffe "Long time no see" stamp is from Auntie Anne.|
The "I miss you" is a CTMH stamp.
|I used Prisma color pencils to color in the giraffe.|
|The invitation measured 5x7 so I had to cut it down to |
fit the wine bottle. I really liked the decorated edges
and hated to cut them off but I had no choice. So I
went back and cut out the detailed edges and glued
them back onto the cover. I added a green, red and
black boarder around the invite to add more color.
|This is the finished bottle cover.|
|Bill is in a band and plays guitar. He also loves|
to ride bikes so I decided to add these charms.
Can you see in the right hand corner how I added
the cut out edges?
|I didn't have anything left from the invite for the top of |
the cover, so using distress inks I colored and stamped
a piece of CS to match the invite.
|At the last minute I added Bill's name to the bottom. LOL|
