Classy Cards N Such ~ With Sympathy

I have made a sympathy card to share with you today.  Thankfully, I do not need one at this time.   I like to have one made ahead of time because it is always so difficult to make them when  you do need them.

I have used the Poppy Stamps Angel corner for this card.  I made a frame with them.  I put So Silk Glamour Green card stock behind them.  The die cuts on top of the corners are made using Marianne's Anja Large Oval die.  I used Joy Foam Pads to pop up the oval.    I used Art Institute Clear Adhesive to adhere the die cuts to the card.  My sentiment was embossed using silver embossing powder.

Thank you for looking at my card today.  You may find the products that I have used in the Classy Cards N Such store.  You may use the code Shirley-10 for a discount.

Classy Cards N Such - By The Sea

Here is a card  made for the Classy Cards N Such beach scene challenge.  We were given a picture of a beach theme for inspiration.  

I started my card by cutting a navy blue frame using the Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die.  This really is a classy looking frame.  

 I used red and navy card stock to cut the layering pieces using the Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles dies.    This set has seven dies with both rectangle and oval dies to make some great layouts.

The Lighthouse image I used is from the Graphic 45  By The Sea paper pad.  The shells wre also cut from this pad.   I used Joy Small Foam Pads to pop the shells up on my card.  

I used star punches to cut the stars that I placed in the corners.  I adhered them to the card  using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.  

I hope you enjoyed my card for today. Don't forget to make you beach card and upload it to our challenge.  We can't wait to see your card.

Classy Cards N Such - Sea Side Fun

Here is a beach card I made for Classy Cards N Such using the Graphic 45 Paper By the Sea.  This pad has so many wonderful beach pictures to choose from when looking for an image for your card or scrapbook page.

I used the lighthouse image for the background from the By The Sea Paper pad.  On the very bottom of the card I torn a piece of light brown card stock and used distress ink on it to make it look like sand.  I fussy cut the children images and popped them up on the card using Joy Foam Pads Small.

The seahorse and the steering wheel were cut using the Impression Obsession Mini Nautical Set.  The shells were made using the Impression Obsession Shell set.  They were sponged also with distress ink.  The blue starfish was cut from So Silk Glamour Green Card Stock.  I had a scrap left over from another card and it was just too pretty to throw away.  I knew I would find a use for it.

For the final step on this card, I made a sailor's knot with thick twine and glue it to the upper corner of my card.

The products in bold print can be found at the Classycards Store.  You may use the code  Shirley - 10  for a 10% discount.  Bev has a sale going on  at the store for 23% off Stampavie and Flourishes stamps.  Head on over and check out the sale.

Baby Cow Girl Scrapbook Pages

I just wanted to share a couple more pages that I made for Parker's scrapbook.  Both her Daddy and Momma participated in rodeo during their school years so I am sure that Parker will be a little cowgirl and if she is not, she has a cute little baby cowgirl outfit that will be great for a picture to go in this spot.  I love this Squigglefly image of the cowgirl.   The boots are from a stamp set that can be found at MFP Stamp Shop.

Thanks for looking.

Classy Cards N Such - Summer Picnic-Red, Kraft and White

The challenge at Classy Cards in a Summer Picnic theme and use the colors red, kraft and white.   This was a little misleading to me.    This means you must have something on your card that relates to the picnic theme, as well as, use the colors.  Okay, we have now have the technicalities out of the way so lets get on with my card.

I love the colors of this challenge and I added some black card stock to go with it.  I used Graphic 45 Papers  Raining Cats and Dogs.   This pad is jam packed with fabulous paper and images.  The little black Frenchy  in the upper corner is by Poppy Stamps.

I used the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings die to cut my flowers.   I shaped my flowers sing the stylus from the Paper Blossom Paper Tool Kit.  I used a gold dew drop and gold beads to the centers of my flowers.

I used the Memory Box Lavish Branch die to make the leaves on each side of my flowers and added tiny gold beads to the center of the little flowers.  I used Art Institute Clear Adhesive to attach the flowers and leaves to the card.

Thank you, for stopping by today.  I hope you will make a card for this challenge and upload it to our blog.

Classy Cards N Such - Hello, My Friend

I am back with a pink, black and white card to show you today.  This is one of my favorite color combo's, but I bet you already knew that.  ~smile~

I used the Spellbinders Divine Eloquence die  to cut the bottom pink layer of card stock.  The next two layers were cut with a die set in my collection.  I used the dots embossing folder  to emboss both of those pieces.   The Spellbinders Floral Oval die was used to cut the white oval.    The flowers were cut using the Memory Box Prim Poppy Die.  I cut a layer of black and then  I cut pink flowers to layer over the black.   The pieces were adhered together using Art Institute Clear Adhesive.

The sentiment was stamped using a Our Daily Bread Designs set called Ornate Frame Sentiments.  The die I used to cut the sentiment out is Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags One.

As a finishing touch, I added white pearls to my card.

Classy Cards N Such - Splatters Challenge #92 - Anja Corner Butterfly

Hi, Happy Monday to all of you in blog land.  I hope your day is going good for you after a busy weekend.

Today I have a card I made for Classy Cards N Such  Blog Splatter challenge.   When I saw the splattering on the inspiration photo,  I got hung up on the splatters so I tried to re-create them.    I added frames made with the Impression Obsession 6 in 1 frame.     My sentiment is from the Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments.

The butterfly was made with my Poppy Stamps Angel Corner die.   One day I was looking at one of die cut corners and decided it would make a beautiful butterfly so today I gave it a try.  I cut four of the corners and layered two of them together to make the butterfly a fluffier appearance and added silver and black Rhinestones.  I like the way the butterfly turned out so I am sure I will make more of these in the future.

Glad you stopped in today and I hope you have a great week.

Let's Have Tea

Here is a shabby card I made.  I used The Tea Shoppe stamp from SU.   I used  strawberry ink on one side of it and cabana blue on the other.  I sponged distress ink around the edges.  I added pearls and flowers to the cup and placed it on  a doily also sponged with distress ink.  I placed it on the floral paper, added the frame, layers, wooden clock and the bow with the stick pin.  I sponged all the papers ribbon and the clock with distress ink to give it more of a vintage look.

Thanks, for coming by today.
