CLOUDS
I had fun experimenting with cloud shapes yesterday.  
I traced clouds on paper, cut them, then run it in my Big Shot with
Cuttle Bug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
I created a card with a monogram B for baby. Simple, yet fun.

Ingredients: DCWV printed paper, All About Scrapbooking cardstock, white cardstock, sizzix big shot, sizzix swiss dots embossing folder, chipboard, we are memories scrapbook paint (Funky Vintage), Autumb Leaves stamp-sentiment



The cloud can also be used to make a sundae, ice cream, or cupcake! Isn't it a versatile shape? You don't need a die to make a cloud because it's really simple to do. If you want identical clouds, you can just trace the original shape (the first one you made) on a sheet of paper or cardstock.

I stamped "It's time to Celebrate" inside the card

Ingredients to Happy Birthday card
All About Scrapbooking- paper and cardstock
Hero Arts stamp - sentiments
sizzix big shot
Cuttlebug embossing folder - swiss dots
buttons and floss

Thank You, It's The Little Things

Inspired by French corsets, this gate fold card features a laced opening. 

 I used Prima papers both for background and elements. I cut 
the blossoms from the paper and used it to embellish the left side of the flap.
I created the cute bird cage using my new Spellbinders die - my first project!!
The accent on the top of the left flap was created using Spellbinders Parisian accent die

 Inside the card is a sentiment "It's the little things".
The whimsical fence was created using Martha Stewart punch around the page which I bought from my
sister Luanne. She can't use it with her cards so she decided to sell it.

This little bird is too cute - also from the Spellbinders birds and birdcage set of dies.
 
Thank You- Other ingredients:
Tim Holtz distress Inks- Old paper and Victorian velvet
Lace - also from my sister, Luanne
Satin ribbon
paper flowers
eyelet and eyelet setter
Hero Arts stamps - sentiments
