Beach Day

This card is different from the normal birthday cards I make. I am using Spellbinder’s May-2021 card kit of the month and was able to make several birthday cards using this adorable anchor. Sometime it is more relaxing die cutting than coloring:)

Bear and Honey

I enjoyed cutting and layering this “Bear and Honey” image by Kinda Cute Stamps. I originally made him too big so I resized him to fit on a 6×6 patterned paper. This idea came from Vicky P. on YouTube. I die cut a bee image and made it look like it was leaving the honey. I hope this card makes you happy.

Sharing is Caring

Sharing is Caring image by The Paper Shelter. It was a free image for the Outlawz June Progressive Challenge.

I took my flower dies and embossed them onto my card base and then stamp the center with the matching flowers. I had to do this several times because I did not have my dies facing up or I did not have heavy enough paper. But in the end I like my background:)

Hello Beautiful

I love mermaids and the myths behind them. This adorable mermaid, Lexie is by Sweet November Stamps. I had to give the background more than just ocean, so I glitter and pop-up sand. I also did white dots on her fin instead of drawing in scales.

I am entering her in the following challenges:

Good Friends

I felt like doing some layering for this adorable image called “Bug Brats Easter” by Bugaboo Stamps. I printed her out 3 times and colored all 3 of them and the wagon I colored twice. Pop her up with foam dots and added her to a 4 1/2 x 8 card base. I love how she turn out.

Birthday Bunny

I had this cute image called “Birthday Bunny” by Imagine That Digistamp all colored up and ready to mail out to a friend. I will have to stamp the inside to read happy belated.

I used glossy accent on the strawberries, heart and on their hats. I love how just by adding this embellishment it makes the image pop from the page.
