Baking Card


I made a birthday card for my supervisor at work. She loves to bake and the color yellow so I made her this card:

I cut a 1 and 1/4 by 5 amd 1/2 strip and three 1 inch squares for the counter. I stamped them with the woodgrain background stamp and used gathered twigs distress ink to color them brown. I added silver brads as the handles.

The stove is cut out rectangles, colored with gray markers and a stamped cookie from the stamp set milk and cookies. The other stamped images are from milk and cookies and baked with love stamps. I colored in all of the stamped images. I then fussy cut them out.

The white background was embossed with a brick embossing folder. I used the baked with love stamp and drew/colored a frame.

For ther inside of the card, I stamped "have a sweet birthday" from the baked with love stamp set and drew/colored a frame to match the frame on the front of the card.

Deer Card

I am super excited about this card. I've been planning it for weeks. I have a friend that I show my cards to and he always asks why he never gets a card so his birthday is coming up and he loves to hunt.

This is the card:

I cut the deer and tag out with my silhouette. The writing on the tag is written with my silhouette sketch pens. I distressed the edges of the tan paper, the tan oval where the deer is, and the tag. I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set from Stampin' Up to create the camoflouge background.

I created a camoflouge background on the inside as well. Here is the inside:

I stamped a bold happy birthday on the inside. It stands out pretty well on the camoflouge background.

Good Luck Card

This was a sad card to make. A co-worker is leaving so I made her a good luck/we will miss you card. I made the card using a joy fold which I found here.

I used pink paper as the backing and then decorative purple paper for the inside piece and the outside flap. I used purple paper as the backing for the inside flap. I used my Silhouette Studio to write the quote and the good luck sentiment. I made the dashes my hand. I added a flower to the front for more decoration.

On the inside flap i made the dashes around the edge to match the outside and used my silhouette to write the we will miss you!

Shopping Card

I have a friend that loves shopping and the color purple. I saw this card idea here with shopping bags and thought it would be perfect for her.

Here it is:

Sorry it's so fuzzy. I had to crop it and it was taken with my phone.

The top bag: I cut out and folded it to be a.... well... bag. I punch holes in the side and added some ribbon for the handle.

The bottom bag is cut from a die with corresponding paper below it. I added a decorative flower to it.
Tissue paper was used inside the bags. There is a strip of ribbon across the top and I made the bow with my bow marker that a friend had her husband make for me (first time I've ever used a bow maker).

I stamped a simple party stamp at the bottom right and added some gem flowers.

On the inside I stamped this image:
