Just Believe Birthday card

Here is a quick card I made this morning for a co-worker.  I used the Just Believe stampset from Stampin Up, the sentiment was from a birthday stampset from CTMH.  I used tombow markers to colour the image and then misted it with water.  There was a similar card on Pinterest with a torn edge.  I'm not great with paper tearing so I just left it alone.
Real Red cardstock from Stampin Up for the card base, pink layer is from Michaels cardstock, and white cardstock from staples.  Ribbon from the dollar store, button from Walmart.

Milkman card

Wow it is 2016 and this is my first post. I have been creating but I have forgotten to take pictures, therefore no posts.  One of the people in my office calls himself a bag of milk. Jiggly with no muscle tone. Here is his birthday card. I made this with my explore and with my expression and SCAL2.  I must say that while I love the Explore, it is no substitute for SCAL2.  SCAL is much easier to use for creating SVG's, there is no need for inkscape.

Christmas Eve card

Post number 80 for the year.  I made it, and I have a few more to share.

I stamped this card using Lovely as a Tree from Stampin Up, the Santa sleigh and reindeer came from an Inkadoo stampset and the sentiment (which is not straight-lol) comes from a Recollections stamp set.

This card was made by stamping, masking and sponging.

Winter Frolic Christmas

This is post 79 for the year, as I mentioned I wanted to have 80 posts for the year.  Yeah I'm gonna make it, I have a ton more Christmas cards to post.

Another cricut Christmas card.  I love the winter frolic cartridge. 

Christmas Snowman

Here is a Christmas card that was made at a card Class with Janice Wardrop.  I love the sparkle and simplicity of the card.  All supplies are Stampin Up.

Christmas Paper Scraps

Last year I attended a card class where we used strips of paper to form the background for a card.  I lived this technique as it is so great for using scraps.  This card is simple you just cut your scraps into strips.  I cut a 5.25 by 4 inch piece of cardstock and ran it through my xyron.  I then took strips of my Christmas paper and started attaching in a pattern.  I cut the base for the sentiment and stuck it on the front of the card.

Baby Henry

I thought that I'd post a baby card that I made for a baby luncheon we had at work today.
I used my cricut imagine for this card and the Nursery Tails cartridge.  I also used Plantin School book for the H.  I switched up the colours for the baby sign.
