Just a few months early...

Sooo.. Yes, I felt the desire to make some Halloween cards in July, so I went with it! LOL.

I was organizing my room and came across all my Pebbles Halloween supplies and saw my Simon Says Stamp "Happy" die on my desk, and decided to put them to use.  I hope that's okay with you guys. ;)

My favourite part of the first card is the little ticket stubs with die cut stars on them.  The tiny stars are from Lawn Fawn and the ticket die is a bit of an older one by My Favorite Things.  I also used my new border dies by Paper Smooches for the die cut ticking marks around the edge of the white card stock.

I decided I needed to use the negative from the happy die cut, and cut the word out in orange to inlay it in my second card.  Good thing I saved all the little inner pieces!  :)  I still love the look of inlaid die cuts, it's just so clean looking. 

Here are the links to the supplies I used for these cards available at SSS.  The Pebbles supplies are a bit older, and not as readily available.  If they aren't in your stash I highly recommend the new Pebbles Halloween line available here. :)

Pebbles mini envelope cards!

Hey guys!  I'm happy to share these cards I made for the Pebbles blog last month!  The challenge was to use the adorable mini envelopes.  I added them in on my cards as embellishments and thought they turned out pretty cute! :)  You can read more over on the Pebbles blog here.

Here are the supplies I used to create these cute cards as available from Simon Says Stamp! :)

Birthday card duo

 Hey guys!  I'm here today to share a few just for fun cards I made.  As I've probably said a million times, the cards I use the most by far are Birthday and Thanks cards.  So I'm always up for adding a few more to my stash of cards.  I pulled out the Cake Walk line by October Afternoon and made these two cards.

The first card of them that I made was this one, simple because I was dying to use these adorable balloon dies I ordered by Paper Smooches.  There are so many companies with balloon dies, but I chose these for the good price point, and cute sizes.  I decided to use the inlaid die cut technique to incorporate some patterned paper stars in the balloons.  I used the Puffy Star die, and 2x3 Journaling card die set, both from Lawn Fawn.  I used my white gel pen to add a few marks to the balloons, and my Wink of Stella over the inlaid stars, and on the sentiment letter stickers.  I was really happy with the way it turned out, I think it's super cute!

Also, it's hard to see, but I also tied a sting around the balloon ends with simple white thread.  It looks quite cute in person :)

And then because I had all these supplies pulled out on my desk already I made a second card.  I had a scrap of glitter paper on my desk and used that as the base to my card for a little extra fun.

Dream Big

Here is a card I made with some Pebbles supplies.  A mix from the Basics line, and the Love you More Boy line.  I also added an adorable little cake with candles that is a Lawn Fawn stamp I coloured with colic markers.

Thanks for looking.  Sorry for such short posts lately, life if the summer is busy!! :)

You & Me

 I like naps, and you.  It's true.  ;)

Just a really simple and quick card to share today.  Made with Pebbles supplies, and some random buttons from my craft supply.

Have a happy day! :)

Pebbles Mini Cards

So, these didn't photograph all that well, but well, here they are all the same ;)  

I made these cards by scoring in half a 4x6" project life grid card, so they are 3x2.5".  So small and cute!  Sometimes all you need is a tiny card to tuck into a gift, or sneak an I love you card into your husbands briefcase.  The little things, you know?

Anyhow, thanks for popping by today!
