Dressed Up Sophie





Hi! Today I want to share a card I made for a special friend. I used the sweet Dressed Up Sophie Digi Stamp from Little Blue Button Stamps for my card. This image comes with the sentiments pictured.


I made my card in Cricut Design Space. The card base is a pink 6 inch square card. I then added a 5.75 inch square light yellow mat, then a pink mat at the top that measures 5.5 by 2.75 inches. (The paper is from the Watercolor Ombre Stack by DCWV.) A floral mat the same size was added to the bottom. ( The pink rose floral cardstock is from Samantha Rose by DCWV.) A 5.75 inch wide heart border was added to the center where the two mats meet and a daisy trim was added down the middle. Small pink pearls were added to the center of each flower.




To create the image I started by slicing the sentiments off of the image, then attached the Sophie image to a 4.75 inch decorative shape with a matching frame. (from LSHD) I colored Sophie and her furry friend with my Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers.  The frame was cut from vanilla Pearlescent Cardstock by COLORBOK. The completed image and frame were attached to upper left side of the card with foam tape.
 The sentiments were printed separately, cut into small rectangular shapes, then matted on coordinating cardstock. These were glued to the lower right side.

I love how sweet this card is. 
Thanks for looking!

50's Ice Cream Soda Box




Hi! Today I am sharing this adorable 50's Ice Cream Soda Box made with a file from My Scrap Chick.


CG - 50s Ice Cream Soda Box: click to enlarge


I used a white pearl foil cardstock from the Watercolor Ombre Stack by DCWV for the base of the glass. I glued it together with Alene's Tacky Glue and held the pieces in place with paper clips while it dried.  I used a blue and pink floral print (source unknown) for the overlay on the glass.




I used a combination of Tombow Aqua Glue and a Zig 2 Way Glue pen on the overlays.



I used Recollections pink cardstock for the ice cream base and put it together the same way as the base.



The decorative pieces for the ice cream were cut from a textured pink polka dot by BAZZILL.



I love how this 50's Ice Cream Soda Box turned out! It's the perfect box to tuck a little surprise into for a special someone.

Thanks for stopping by!

Boarding Time Shape Card


All Aboard!

Do you have some exciting tavel plans for this summer? This cute little guy is all packed and ready to go!


 It's New Release Day at Little Blue Button Stamps and I used the cute little "Boarding Time" digi stamp to create this little shape card.
You can find all the New Releases HERE:

I created the shape card by welding two suitcase files from Design Space together at the sides. I cut an extra suitcase from patterned paper for the front of the card and added little rounded corners to the suitcase. I also added aqua pearls to the corners. The words "travel" and"journey" and the "Bon Voyage" luggage tag were also from Cricut. A pearl was added to the luggage tag.


I colored the cute little traveler with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.


Thanks for stopping by.
Bon Voyage!

Sophie With Umbrella Easel Card



"April showers bring May flowers" or at least we hope so!


I used the sweet digi stamp, "Sophie With Umbrella" from Little Blue Button Stamps on my card.

I colored the image using my Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers. She was added to the finished card with foam squares.


I created this umbrella shaped easel card in Design Space. 


You should be able to access the Design Space file here:
https://design.cricut.com/#/design/141213820


I used patterned cardstock from the "Uptown Flair Glitter Stack" by the paper studio for my card. I made mountain folds on the green umbrella piece and added it to the card with a double foam square in the center and small glue dots at the points. Clear flower gems were added at the points also.


I added my sentiment to an octagon and matted the sentiment with the same paper as used on the umbrella. I added it to the card with foam squares, then added some clear flower gems around the sentiment. These help to hold the easel part of the card. 

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think.

Miss Lilly on the Bike Garden Gate Easel Card


Hi! It is finally starting to look like Spring!



Today I am sharing a sweet little easel card made by combining the adorable Miss Lilly on the Bike from Little Blue Button Stamps, with Birds and Garden Gate Easel from My Scrap Chick.

         girl on bike digital stamp for cardmaking                     Birds & Garden Gate Easel Card: click to enlarge


When making the garden gate I made four of the cross beams on the gate. I put two across horizontally and the other two on each end vertically. I used two layers of double stick tape for the side pieces to raise them up a little.




I used cardstock from several sources for my card. I used a blue floral print for the background, a green dot for the grass, and a gray wood grain print for the garden gate. The card base is light blue,
I moved one of the birds to the left to create room for the image.



Here is how the card looks from the back and side.







I used my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers to color Miss Lily on the Bike. I tried to copy the grass and garden gate between the spokes of the bike tires. I fussy cut the image and added her to the card using foam tape to give the card some extra dimension.



I created the sentiments in Cricut Design Space and added the "Life is a beautiful ride" sentiment using more foam tape.


I think these two files make a perfect pairing. My Scrap Chick cards make a perfect base for LBBS images!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Spring!
