digital image (Beccy's Place), used acrylic shimmer paint for the icing, added clear dimensional paint to give it depth and finally added some Diamond Dust - chunky glitter from the the good old days to give it lots of texture!! It looks great!! I layered the image over a red embossed layer (CB -D'vine Swirl) and onto a black card front. Added a black strip of cardstock to which I glued the punched (SU) colour printed greeting which I embellished with two red dots of watercolour.
Really like the way this card turned out and I am sure she will enjoy it as well!!

We brought some fun dinosaurs for the family when we were there last and they were a hit. I am sure she will enjoy her dinosaur cake and the day with her family!! Her brothers had birthdays in Feburary and I made her older brother this card.

For the top card I combined an embossed image which was watercoloured blue and a silver embossed script greeting to create one element. I layered it using a coordinating cardstock and laid it over the white seam binding which I attached to the embossed card front. You can see a bit of the white insert just above and below the greeting. I love this colour of blue!!
For the bottom card I used a section of decorative paper I created earlier this week when I made this card. I added a piece of cardstock to the card front, a stamped and embossed greeting over some brown seam binding and I was done!!
These are quick and easy if you are lucky enough to find coordinating elements in your stash!!

I have been wanting to try this technique for a while - pigment ink on the inside of the watches/clock embossing folder and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I added some white shimmering pigment ink to the white areas and embossed them with clear embossing powder as well. I like they way it turned out!! I printed the watch (digital image from CD) on the card front as well as another to fuzzy cut out and raise over the original image. I added clear dimensional paint over the watch to create the look of glass and added black cording as well.
Really like this technique and will be playing with it some more - after I move into the new house!!

I used a lilac card front and layered on a floral embossed layer (CB) in a blue purple colour and added a strip of deep pink which I stamped with a butterfly image in a similar colour to give it dimension without too much contrast. I coloured the butterfly image (CLKER) with watercolour and added some shimmer using acrylic paint. Layered it onto an embossed silver foil scallop circle (yogurt seal), then onto a darker purple scallop and finally onto a medium toned scallop circle which were all cut with Nestibilities. I added both this element and the colour printed greeting to the card front using 3D foam tape. I did embellish the greeting with watercolour when I was painting the butterfly to ensure it would coordinate perfectly!!
Nestibilities are a great way to get perfectly sized elements for layering!!
these tags. I added a central decorative brad to hold the flower together and then dug into my bucket of "extras" to see if I could find a leaf - sure enough I found one!! I found the greeting in my bucket of extra greetings. I added a bit of watercolour and glued it to the back of the flower and did the same to the leaf. Applied double sided tape to the back of all the elements and adhered it to the front of my tiny card!! My desk is a bit cleaner and I have a tiny card to add to my card stash!!
