Congrats Graduate!

Just wanted to share a card I made using the Die'sire Create-a-Card card blanks. 
Such an easy way to make some fun shaped cards, and they coordinate perfectly with the Die'sire Create-a-Card dies. 

The image on this card is called Grad with Roses by Mo's Digital Pencil.
I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers: TN4 FS9 FS7 FS4 CR2 DR5 TN8 TN9 TN6 IG9 IG7 IG6 EB2 EB1  

The sentiment and embellishments are from the Silhouette Design Store. 

Bridal Shower Card with *NEW* Die'sire Create-a-Card Dies

Last weekend was my soon-to-be-sister-in-law's Bridal shower. Naturally, I had to make her a super fancy card. 

I used some of the new Die'sire dies from Crafter's Companion (coming to HSN on July 11th). 

The large heart is a part of the "Love is in the Air" Die set. 

The die set also includes these little flowers that fit perfectly over the large heart cut outs. It makes it really easy to add more color and dimension to your projects.  I cut the flowers from Navy Blue and Silver Glittered Cardstock. 

The image I used on this card is from The East Wind on Etsy. I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. (Color Palette Below)

Additional Supplies: Leoni Pujol Dies- Funky Heart Base
Die'sire Lace Corners
Die'sire Alphabet Dies
Nuvo Crystal Drops
Crafter's Companion Easel Card Base & Expandable Envelope in white

End of the Year Thank You Cards

I really had a lot of fun making these end of the school year Thank You cards for the twins' Pre-K teachers. 

I used the girl version of the Nerdy Pencils images by 2 Cute Ink. I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors & pin-able palette below).

I used papers from the Doodlebug Design Back to School 6x6 Paper Pad. I cut the "thanks" on the Gemini machine and added Clear Sparkle Pen and Glossy Accents to it. 

On the inside I printed one of my favorite sentiments for teachers. This one is from the Silhouette Design store. I wrote a note to the teachers in the blank portion of the card and had the girls sign the cards as well.

New Mom - Mother's Day Card

Wowsers! I can't believe it's been over 2 MONTHS since I've written a blog post. Talk about slacking off...

Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card that I made for my SIL. She just had her first baby earlier this month (I'm finally an Aunt! Woo Hoo!!). 

I used the image Baby Snuggle Kaylee by Some Odd Girl

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. The card shape and all the background pieces were made on the Silhouette. I cut the flowers with the Gemini and the Die'sire Nature mini dies.  I added a layer of Crystal Clear Sparkle pen to them to give them a little shimmer and finished them off by putting a little Nuvo Drop in the center of each one. 

Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers used:
