Happy End of June

My word, the summer is flying right on by, before we know it, we will be out Chirstmas shopping (lol).  Well, I do have a good start on Christmas cards so I feel pretty good about that.  I would like to show you a few cards I have made lately......hope you like them and "Happy Crafting".
This lovely white rose is from CUP and it is a 3d sheet.  I backed it up on
the brown and a very thin edge of light beige for the base.  I have added
brown pearls along the ribbon and a touch of glitter on the rose.  This
sheet was designed by Diane Furniss on the CUP Site.

I printed this card out on photo paper, the background is
from CUP and was designed by Sandra Carlse and
the rose is also from CUP and designed by Crafty Bob!
The rose is raised with pop dots, I added a Cricut HB Sentiment
and a bit of bling for embellies.

I made this whimsical turtle into a Get Well type card.
I built his face and feet up, added come decorative corners
with pearls and put some clouds overhead.  I generated the
sentiment on my computer.  This cute turtle is a CUP sheet and
was designed by Janette Padley.

This is one of my favourite cards I made lately and was
purchase from CUP as well.  The frame is one I had filed
under "Hugware" and the beautiful flowers is a CUP sheet
designed by Crafty Bob.  I added pearls and built up
the flowers and outer leaf (right) with pop dots.  It really
is elegant in the real......printed on photo paper.

This was a Cuttlebug Challenge on PCP this week - we had to
use something that flies.  I stamped the bee & ladybug, coloured
them and added a flower & pearl to them  The butterflies were
punched with a MS punch (backed up with black) and I added
a couple pearls to them as well.  I did run the DP through my
Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots EF.  Lastly, I added the yellow/white
polka-dot ribbon.  It was a fun card to make.

Happy Month of June ( a little late aren't I)

Hello Friendly Crafters:

I have 5 or 6 cards I'd like to share with you - two of them are Cuttlebug Challenges and the other four are Crafts-U-Print (CUP) cards.  Hope you enjoy them and Happy Crafting.

This card is a beautiful craft sheet that I purchased from
CUP and it was designed by Ann-marie Vaux.  I used a metallic
white for the base which I ran through my CB, cut out and assembled
the 3d parts, added white stick-on pearls and last but not least,
a sparkle rope bow.  My favourite colour of course....."Blue".

Now, wouldn't this bright and cheerful card make anyone
feel better? it!  This is also a CUP card and was
designed by Eva Cano.  The card is pyramid style (but
fery different) and I like it.  I sewed real buttons on in 3
of the corners with criss-cross red stitches.

This birthday card is a tri-fold and has the flowers
built up with foam pads......also a CUP card and designed by
Anna Babajanyan.  I added yellow pearls to the center
of each flower and green strip and yellow strip of ribbon down
the polka dot strip on the right.

Oh how I looooove this card, so much, that I am
going to keep it.  This is a CUP card that was designed
by Tina Fitch.  She usually just designs cutting files but
very kindly turned this into a PDF format so that us
crafters that don't know how to
use cutting files, can still make the card.  The most difficult part I found,
was cutting the word Birthday out (3 layers)...isn't he a cutie?

This little card, I made for a Cuttlebug Challenge on
PCP - I used the Owl Embossing Folder on
Core-Cardstock and sanded it to bring the owl
to life.  Then I added googley eyes and a
computer generated sentiment.  We were to
make a "male" card.

My Thank you card is also a Cuttlebug Challenge.  We
are to cut most things with CB Dies and use Embossing
folders in our cuttlebug.  Everything was done on
my Cuttlebug except for the leaves.  I had those
left over and thought they would fill in the gaps on
the card.  We were to have flowers and make the
card with the Cuttlebug.
