One in a Minion

 

I recently learned that my dear Mother-in-Law loves the Minions.  So, this just had to be done.  Happy Birthday to you!  I am glad we share our youthful love of whimsical things!! This minion’s name is Dave.

Here is the inside and the back.  I used a Minion language translator website for these. .  Just do a web search for minions translator.  The minion eyeballs on the site follow your mouse – really cute!

Halloween Scene

 

Halloween is coming! ¬† I love all the candy and cute kidlets in costumes and candy and well, the CANDY! I could do without all the scary movie commercials though!ūüôā. ¬†I decided it was time to create a few fun cards for my Halloween loving friendsūüôā ¬†The card set was a labor of love because I rarely make multiples. ¬†I used the Misti when I could, but these cards included lots of masking, layers of stamping, and Copic coloring! ¬†This is the cutest one of the set, I think!

Hagrid!

 

Wow…look at all these cobwebs around here! ¬†I wish I could say it was because Halloween is coming – but really, I’ve just been posting my cards more on Instagram lately. ¬†I tend to make more cards in the colder months – when I’m stuck inside – so card season is coming up here really quickly!!ūüôā

I made this card for our niece – her 12th birthday is today! ¬†She recently got to experience the joy of reading the Harry Potter books…so I just couldn’t resist buying this digi from¬†Bugaboo Stamps!¬† I bought another of the set – and there are so many others that I just love!!

Some Things Old, Some Things New

 

Christmas has gone by, and I only got half the cards out that I’d hoped. ¬†In this New Year, one nice thing is that we are just seeing our first snow here. I think snowflakes work out great for thank you cards for those holiday gifts! ¬†This is one I’ll be sending out soon.

For this card, I dug out my vellum and embossed my new Crystal Flurries stamps by The Ton stamps on it with some glittery blue embossing powder I have had in my stash a long while. ¬†I adhered the vellum down just under the snowflakes, so it looks like a loose overlay around the edges. ¬†I just love the new DCWV Glitzy cardstock I received as one of my gifts! ¬†The glitter doesn’t come off at all and the sparkle is awesome! ¬† I used a cute die cut from Simon Says Stamp.

Crystal Flurries

 

As my obsession with snowflakes continues, here is a card I made with my new Crystal Flurries set by The Ton stamps.  I embossed the flakes with Ranger Platinum embossing powder and then water colored the paper.  I embossed the edges of the white cardstock with the same embossing powder so that it would match the stamps.  The vellum banner is hand stitched with a silvery thread I found in my cross stitching stash.

Red, White and Snow

Just to show you how versitile the Simon Says Stamps snowflake dies can be, here’s a completely different look than my recent watercolor version. ¬†This time, I added a little clear glue to the die cuts and dipped them into some clear microfine glitter before mounting them onto beautiful DCWV red foiled cardstock. The foil is so reflective that getting a good photo angle sure was tricky!
