Dream, Imagine, and Be Happy!

Hi Friends, 
Today I am here to share another birthday card with you all.  It's a type of card I always struggle with.  Yeap, you guessed it.  "Masculine cards'.  I never know what I'm going to do until I sit down and start. 
I try to use up things I have created in the past.  

Here is my card for my Nephew:

This is another 5x5 card base.  I seem to like this size card lately.  I didn't want to cover the airplane on the paper.  

Here is the Products I used:
Base:  Recollections Blk 65lb Cardstock
Pattern Paper:  7gypsies "Off The Wall" 6x6 paper
Dies:  Spellbinders Cogs (Leftovers from Father's Day Card) and Donna Salazar "Girlie Grunge Labels"
Punch:  Stampin Up "Modern Label Punch"
Acrylic Paint:  Adirondack Dabber "Snow Cap"
Bling:  Michaels 1.50 bling

I like it ok.  I need more masculine stamps and dies or somethng. :D

I hope you all have a great week and a great weekend.

Back from Vacation!

Hi my crafty friends, 
I'm back from vacation with family.  It wasn't a relaxing one but an assisting and helping out vacation.  
Both sides of our families are getting old so it's hard to enjoy when others are not well. 
We knew what we were getting into and the kids just wanted to spend time with grandparents and cousins most of all.  

Anyway, I'm here with a card I made for my Mother-in-law.  I didn't have any crafting stuff there so I had to wait till we got home this weekend. 

Here it is:

I used some of Tatiana's Gorgeous fabric flowers she made.  Thanks Tatiana!
Visit her page on Facebook called Created By Tatiana.
If you are interested in her flowers click on the above.  Thanks. 

Products I used:
Flowers:  From Tatiana
Pattern Paper:  Crate Paper "Pretty Party"
Cardstock:  Recollections 110lb White Cardstock
Dies:  Spellbinders Floral Ovals
Punches: Martha Stewart Butterflies and leaf Punches
Bling/Pearls:  Michaels bling and pearls
Sentiment: Fiskars Cling "Birthday Cheer"

This is a 5x5 size card.  I layered pattern paper, flowers, leaves, banners (I cut myself).  Punched/die cut die and punches with cardstock and pattern paper.  Added some bling and pearls.  Stamped sentiment with Stamin Up "Apricot Appeal".  It's a retired stamp pad.  I also decorated the inside with just some pattern paper. 

That's it.  What do you all think?  I just love how the flowers add to my card. 

Thanks again, Tatiana for the Gorgeous Flowers.  I can't wait to use the others.

CCC #15 - You are Paws-atively Adorable

Hi my crafty friends, 

Wow, it's been one of those weeks.  Well, last week was so busy for me I couldn't do much crafting.  I squeezed some in but not as much as I would have liked.

Hope you all are doing well and keeping cool.  We really didn't have much of a spring here on the East Coast so now we are in the dog days of summer.  

Today, I wanted to share another card for Creative Color Challenge's blog.   This weeks colors are Navy Blue, Red and White plus Banners.

Immediately I thought 4th of July but I thought not. LOL!!
I used an image from Sami Stamps and an sentiment from Sentimental Susan, two of our wonderful sponsors this week.

This is the Image I got from Sami Stamps.  He is so super cute.

Here is the sentiment from Sentimental Susan.  I thought this went with the image.
Don't you think?  

Now, here is card I created:

Simply Adorable... Wait its Paws-atively Adorable... Hehe!

I was inspired by Rina Myers on Youtube to create her version of a Criss Cross Card.
Here is her video:  http://youtu.be/jxi4auaQDck

I used the following products:
Paper:  Bazzil Cardstock
Pattern Paper:  Americana by Pebbles
Dies:  Diemond Dies Enormous Nesting Circles
Image:  Sami Stamps
Sentiment:  Sentimental Susan and Studio G.
Punch:  Martha Stewart
Banners are handmade

Thanks Everyone for stopping by today.
I hope you all like my card.  Please stop by Archana's Blog called
