Humming Happy Birthday!

It's my design day over at SVG Cutting files Cut Club.

I am using card sketch from the June '16 bundle for today's Birthday card.
My mom loves birds and when we lived in the country we had many hummingbirds at the feeder all the time. 

I used a card sketch from SVG Cutting Files for the base of my card. All I had to do is add a sentiment and an image and i had a pretty Birthday card ready for the mail.

The sketch file comes with a heart shape for the corner which I replaced with the flower from the hummingbird file set. 
I added a bit of color to the hummingbirds throat with a very light pink copic marker.

Here's a complete list of items I used today....

Shaker Tags- Happy Birthday!

It's my design day over at SVG Cutting Files
I am sharing some new tag files being released this week. They're called the Peeker/Shaker tags.
They are little tags that have a window flap on the front to open and reveal whats inside.

The hardest part of this project was determining the papers and the stamps. 

I decided to make these tags as shaker tags. You can also put these together without the shaker items and just have the flap reveal a message. 

To make the base of the shaker card, I cut the flap part 8 times, cut the flap off, and then glued them all together on top of each other. I then glued the stack to the back portion of the tag. 

This created the little walls of the tag to hold the sequins and glitter. I then added a  piece of acetate  followed by the top of the card.  

Here's the list of files and stamps I used on these cuties.....

I am using files from the May bundle release- Wedding/Anniversary

Sweet Birthday

A quick post to show a birthday card I did recently using some new stamps and dies in my stash.

I found a card here that Helmy Goyer did.  I couldn't help but try to replicate it.
 It is so pretty. Thank you  Helmy Goyer for the great design.

Here is my version.  
I used  the Best Birds stamps and dies along with other stamps and tools I had in my stash and finally adding some bling in the corner.

Have a crafty Day!

May the 4th be with you!

Happy May the 4th!

Yes, for all those Star Wars fans out there, May the 4th is a fun play on words and a day to celebrate. 
So, I decided to do some fun treat bags. 
I even dusted off my cricut for this project. 

The treat bag is from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. 
The die cuts are from a SVG Cutting Files hop a few years ago..sorry, they're no longer available.

I added a hanging charm and sentiment using the Jaded Blossom Candy War stamps and Candy Charms and Banner dies .

  Next I filled them all with chocolate of course and tied them up with matching ribbon. 

Have a crafty day!!
