One Of a Kind

I'm back with another card from the Magical Day set.   I have had a rainbow die for some time and I never used it.  I thought it would be perfect for this card.

I started by cutting the top of the card front with the stitched cloud borders by Lawn Fawn.  I also cut a smaller panel with the die for the bottom of the card.

Then I cut the rainbow and colored it with markers.  It seemed quicker than cutting each color.  I love the stitching details on the rainbow.  Once I had it finished I positioned it so it would peek out on the front.
The unicorn was stamped and colored rainbow style before I ran it through the scan n cut.

I finished the rainbow on the inside with a couple clouds I die cut.  I also made a sticker for an envelope seal with another unicorn.

Wizard and Dragon Battle

I recently got some of the new Stampin Up goodies.  I knew as soon as I saw it I would be purchasing the Magical Day set.  My family (mostly my husband) is all about the dragons, wizards, and knights.  My daughter loves unicorns and who can say something bad about a sweet little mermaid?

The first card I made with this set uses the dragon and the wizard.  I made a dark purple and a navy version.

I embossed a charcoal gray cardstock with a Tim Holtz brick folder.  I really like how this folder has unexpected cracks and uneven bricks.

Then I stamped the dragon and wizard, colored them, and ran them through the scan n cut.
I stamped the sentiment on vellum and cut it with a spell binder frame.  Then I added some flames from the dragon and sequins from the wizard.

The inside is finished with some more flames and sequins.  I coordinated the envelope with a dragon.

Sweet Baby Boy

I love creating baby cards. Luckily I get to use a lot of them at school!  Today I have two baby boy cards to share.  Both cards feature the Made with Love stamp set from Stampin up.

My first card has a white dotted swiss embossed panel.

I stamped the onsie and sentiment then cut them out with my scan n' cut.  I hanged the onsie on a piece of blue baker's twine with some tiny clothes pins.

IMG_0806

The inside features a sentiment and heart.  I also made a coordinating envelope with a onsie on the front and some more hearts on the back.

The second card has a green panel with embossed stars.

IMG_0809

I stamped the onsie with stripes and colored it green and blue.  I also added a small star that I stamped and cut with the scan n cut.

IMG_0811

I finished off the front with some velvet ribbon, a button, and congratulations.

IMG_0810

The inside features that same sentiment and a star.

IMG_0813

And a coordinating envelope.

I already gave one of these cuties away.  Who knows when I'll get to use the other!

Valentine Shirts

At my school we have more jeans days this year.  I know to most of the world jeans days or jeans passes sounds crazy but sometimes it just gets me through the week.  I know other teachers are reading this and understand exactly what I'm talking about.

With these extra jeans days I have been creating shirts to wear.  Today I have two Valentine shirts to share with you. 

IMG_0755

The first shirt is a red shirt with black glitter vinyl.  Lots of different fonts and ways to say love.  I love how this one turned out.  I may be wearing it beyond Valentine's Day.

IMG_0748

The second shirt is a black shirt with red glitter.  I love all the sizes and styles of hearts.  I think this one could be dressed up with a sweater or a shirt.

IMG_0750

I can't wait to wear my shirts to school.

Grunge Valentines

I have two Valentines to share with you today.  The first one is a black embossed background with hearts.

IMG_0779

I created the white panel with the Gorgeous Grunge and Sending Love stamp sets.

IMG_0780

I also used the Sending Love dies and the Tim Holtz Splatters heart.

IMG_0779

I finished off the inside of the card with a Valentine sentiment and the envelope with some matching stamping.

The second card  I am sharing is a pink card base.

IMG_0765

I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the stamping.  The love and the hearts are both dies from Lawn Fawn.

IMG_0766

I finished the inside with the Valentine sentiment and coordinated the stamping on the envelope.
