Paper Punch Sweethearts!

A few more Valentine's Day Cards to share.  This time, I decided to do a little paper punching.  My last few paper punch peeps have been wearing pants (astronaut, cowboy, cowgirl), so this time I went with some little dresses.

Yay, More Valentines!

Here are two more Valentine's that I finished.  I decided to make a "tall" card, it's always good to try something different.  The designer paper (underneath the hearts) is actually from a Christmas Bo Bunny pad that I had!  It really didn't look "Christmasy", so I think it worked out just fine.
The hearts were cut using Nestabilities and I just adhered scraps of the dp underneath the heart "holes".
Stamps:  Hero Arts-CL498
Paper:  Bazzill,  DCWV, Bo Bunny
Ink:  Versafine
Misc:  Buttons, Heart Nestabilities, red Sharpie pen

Yay, Valentines!

I made some Valentine's Day Cards while I was watching the Law & Order: SVU marathon today, (alternating with resting on the couch).
This is one of my many Pinterest inspired cards:

I'm pleased with the way my card came out.  I decided that I would make two of each card, it is just as quick to make one as it is two.  I did (for the first time) make my own glitter hearts.  I had seen a tutorial on Papertrey Ink at Christmas time, and I never got around to trying it, so I decided to try it with hearts.  I just punched the hearts out of the cardstock, and ran it through my Zyron, then sprinkled glitter onto them, easy peasey!

Happy Birthday, Mom

Hi everyone!  I had my surgery on Wednesday and I have been resting the last few days.  Today, I decided I try and sit at my craft table and finish the birthday card for my Mom.  We won't mention it, but her birthday was on the 19th, but I have been a little busy!  She actually prefers it when her cards/gifts are late, that way she can spread out her birthday festivities!

This is a three paneled card, obviously!  I used a variety of dies, stamps, and paper punches to make this card.
To add extra dimension, I double stamped, and added lots of extra layers with pop up dots.

Liquid Pearls were used to make the sprinkles on the cupcake.

I used a heart stick pin to make the banner, where I signed my name.
Stamps:  My Favorite Things-Hello Cupcake, My Balloon, Holly Girl, Big Greetings
Paper:  Bazzill, MME Allspice, Jillibean Soup
Ink:  Memento, Versafine
Misc:  Flower brads, liquid pears, heart stick pin, Sizzix Fence Die, Papertrey Ink Alphabet Die, My Favorite Things Die-Namics Clouds, Grass, Copics, pop up dots, The Cats Pajamas Cut Ups Pennants Die
For the past two days, while I've been alternating between laying on my bed and the couch, I've been scouting for Valentine's ideas on Pinterest.  I'm excited about making some, so I think I will start tomorrow since I can sit at my table again.

Baby Shower Favors

Hello everyone, sorry I've been gone for so long!  I hope you all had a nice holiday.  My nephew, Dave, came home from the Army, so it was so awesome to see him.  I can hardly believe that I diapered that boy when he was a baby, and now he is this "a lean mean fighting machine!". 
I've also been working a million hours a week at my two jobs!  I'm having my surgery next week, and I'm trying to make extra cash as I will be out of work for a week.  I'm currently in the middle of 15 days straight with no day off! This, of course, severely cuts into my happy crafty time.
I did get this order of baby shower favors done.  I've made favors before this lady, she works with my sister.  She ordered 25 water bottles and 25 candy favors.

The candy favors were made by making a small onesie tent style card.  Inside are two Hershey Nuggets.

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink-Just The Ticket
Ink:  Versafine
Paper:  Crate Paper, Bazzill, Dear Lizzy
Misc:  Water bottles, Hershey Nuggets, paper punches, Nestabilities, powder drink mix, baker's twine, pop up dots
