Card Share: Splendid 6


Do you remember the boy's birthday card I shared a few weeks ago? I picked up a package of chipboard anchor tags from Target's Dollar Spot and used them all on cards. The first card featured a navy blue anchor, this girl's birthday card features a cute pink one.
 

I couldn't resist adding some festive elements like a bow, acrylic stars and a fun tag with the number six on it.

Card Share: Dance Right Now (Pink Paislee Fancy Free)


I made this thank you card for Alexa's solo choreographer. She did such an amazing job putting together a routine that worked perfectly with Alexa's style and she is a sweetheart to boot.

I went with plenty of layering, dimension and texture by using paper elements, chipboard, stickers and a silver charm that says, "dance".

Luck Be a Lady

Can you believe I'm starting the week off with a LAYOUT?! :)

Alexa's 2016 jazz routine was performed to "Luck Be a Lady". Because of the black and white costume and her red lips, I went with a classic color combo. The costume, designed to look like a tuxedo, was covered in sparkling, black sequins. The hat was part of the routine and, believe it or not, she never dropped it. I don't think I'd be able to dance and keep track of a prop like that! Black fishnet stockings finished off the look (and thankfully they made it through the season without tearing).

Card Share: 5, 6, 7, 8 (Pink Paislee Fancy Free)


Can you guess who this card was made for? The 5, 6, 7, 8 might give it away since it goes along with counting dance steps. :) If you guessed it was given to one of Alexa's dance teachers, then you guessed correctly!

I couldn't resist prettying up the circles on the patterned paper with a mix of chipboard, enamel shapes, buttons and even a silver charm. One teacher joked that she wasn't going to open her card this year if it wasn't handmade. She has saved every card I've ever made her over the past 10 years!

Card Share: Amazing Things


Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a graduation card made with pieces from Becky Higgins' Currently ephemera pack (a Project Life collection). They are so much fun to mix, match and layer, plus there are touches of silver foil to add a bit of shine.

I think this card would work equally well to give to someone starting a new job. What do you think?

Card Share: Game On (Simple Stories So Rad)


I know Father's Day was yesterday, but I have one more card to share. I put this together with Simple Stories So Rad scraps and an eclectic mix of embellishments from my stash.

I recently set up my word processing program to print sentiments inside of my cards. This way I can personalize them a bit more for my Etsy shop. This one says, "Are You 'Game' For A Happy Father's Day?"

Card Share: Party Hat


Ahoy there me hearties! I bought a package of chipboard anchor tags from Target's Dollar Spot and...well, of course you know I HAD to work them into a card design. The package had light blue, navy, light pink and hot pink and yes, I used them all. :)

The design on the background paper reminded me of ocean waves so I started with that. The gold star vellum worked well too, softening the background and allowing the tag and other elements to stand out a bit more. A trio of acrylic stars from Color Cast Designs and party hat flair from Feed Your Craft paired nicely with the other embellishments.
