Owl Birthday

Its a busy day at work with 3 of the staff members having birthdays.  One card I already posted as I start to work on male cards very early. 
This card is for a girl who loves owls.  The layout for the card came from Pinterest.  I used scraps for this card, I always love when I can use what I have on hand without cutting into new cardstock.
I don't remember where the papers came from, but the owl is cut from the Imagine cartridge, Better Together, I cut it at 2.6 inches, and then cut the other layers to fit.

Serene Silhouettes Birthday

Here is a birthday card I made for a co-worker.  I used Serene Silhouettes and Work of Art to create this card.  The Inks were SU, Baja Breeze, Barely Banana, So Saffrin, and Wild Wabasi.  The brown ink was from MPS Texas Chocolate.  Cardstock is So Saffrin and a scrap I had lying around.  Bling is from the dollar store.

I love the simplicity of the card and it was very quick to put together.

Easter T's

I saw the grandchildren this morning.  I wanted to give them something for Easter, but I didn't want that to be candy.  The grandchildren are busy enough as it is and don't need the extra sugar.

I used create a critter2 for these t's.  I designed them in the CCR and used my cricut imagine to print and cut the critters.  See the video on color stacking on my blog.

The images were cut at 5.5 inches.  The kids loved the shirts.

Saint Patrick's Day T-Shirt

Here is a T-Shirt that I made for my son's girlfriend to wear at work tomorrow.  The shamrock came from CTMH Art Philosophy, and the pot of gold came from Creat a Critter 2.  I used my Imagine to print and cut the images.  For the Pot of Gold I used the color stacking tutorial (found on my blog).
This was a fun quick project to make.

Happy St. Patricks day to everyone.

Crackle Paint Masculine Birthday

This is a masculine birthday card I made for a co-worker.  I have had a bottle of crackle paint finish for about 4 years and have never used it.  I decided that I was going to use it for the first time.  I love the effect that this gives.  I used a dark brown paint and a tan paint from the dollar store, the crackle finish and my cricut to make this card.  The twine and the pearls are also from the dollar store.
I used Craftroom Basics for the font..

Rock on birthday

This is going to be my son's birthday card.  He wears a lot of black t-shirts so I thought this might be a good idea.  I wanted something bright for the layered background as it will be early spring, and lets face it after this winter I want something bright. 
I used my cricut imagine to print the layered papers, I used Greeting Cards Inside and out, for the lettering and the backing for my sentiment I used a pattern from Industrial Glow. 
The Rock On was cut using Black Letter.  The sentiment is from CTMH.  Ink was my pink stamper Darkest Night.  I used Martha Stewart Opaque Marker Set to do the stitching on the shirt.

Lego card

Here is a lego card I made for a co-worker who is attending a birthday for a nine year old boy.  The gift was lego, so I thought of this card to go with the gift.  I used SCAL to create the lego man inside the card.
