For my Favorite Teenager


The card I have today is one layer and extremely clean and simple:






A couple weeks ago my daughter turned 13.  This is such a big milestone for us.  She's a TEENAGER.   I made this sentiment special for her birthday.


I'm playing along with the Seize the Birthday Tall and Skinny challenge this week.  You can find the challenge here:   Seize the Birthday Tall and Skinny challenge


Our Badge



If you'd like to make a card with my sentiment here's the image.



Thanks for stopping by.

Something BIG is about to happen....

In a few short weeks my baby girl is going to be a teenager.  Not only is she going to be 13, we're celebrating three 13th birthdays in the family.  I'm going to need to have some special milestone birthday cards ready.


I used the layout from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch and the colors from the Just Us Girls color theme.  It's black & white + one color - I used gold.

Peachy Keen, Jelly Bean



Today I have a Peachy Card to share with you.  For some reason it made me think of the quote "Peachy Keen, Jelly Bean" from Grease.  It's kind of fitting since the color is peachy and jelly beans are plentiful at this time of year.







To create this card, I ran white cardstock through the cuttlebug with the PTI Linen Embossing Folder, then I stamped the sentiment with versamark and heat embossed it.  I cut the circle frame out of white cardstock and sponged it to get a color close to the card base color.  I stamped the glass on vellum with versa mark and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I colored the image.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

If You Like Pina Coladas

Today I have a fun tropical celebration card.  It will likely be a birthday card but it could go along with some other celebration as well.

There is still snow on the ground here, and I don't want to jinx it, but it is starting to melt.  I am starting to feel like spring is on it's way.  So, it's about time to be inspired by something more cheerful.


I've been coming across a lot of cards with sponging this week.  There were quite a few that really inspired me to get out some supplies I haven't used in a while.  I have these chalk ink pads in some fun colors like peach, lime green, yellow and teal.  They remind me of summer.  I don't make many cards using sponging.  In fact, I was looking through my cards on Pinterest and I could only find 2 cards with any sponging.




To make this card I ran white cardstock through the cuttlebug with the PTI Linen Embossing Folder, then I sponged with Versa Magic Chalk Inks.  I covered it with some Glossy Accents and spritzed it with the SU Shimmer Smooch Spritz and let it dry.  I stamped the glass on vellum with versa mark and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I colored the image. I cut two circles out of the center with the Sizzix Circle dies and taped the image under the circle.  The top circle is popped up with dimensionals.  I also embossed the sentiment.
