Birthday Card using Imagine More & Elegant Cake Art

Hi all thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.  This is another birthday card, for my son this time who is going to be 20, can you believe it!  Am I that old to have a twenty year old!!  Guess so!  Anyway I cut out my card blank using one of my templates.  Will have to get organised and try and make a Gypsy file for these.  The card was from The Paper Mill Shop and the frame cut and Owl cut were from "Imagine More" pages 13 & 6.  This cart is so versatile, there seems to be something for everyone on there.  They all go together well so its easy to mix and match too.

The Happy Birthday was from Elegant Cake Art and I just cut it without the shadow.  This is another great cart for phrases especially.  It also has some great borders as you would expect from Martha Stewart.  The background  is from First Edition "Spring Feast" 12x12 pad which has some gorgeous card in.  Half double sided and half glittered then I used some glitter peel offs for borders and embelishments on the side panels and a smattering of stickles.  The plain brown card is by Papermania.  Thanks for looking.

Grandma's Birthday Cakes with Birthday Bash

Got a few birthday's this month and its Grandma's this week.  I made her some cupcakes and decorated using my lovely cricut and the Birthday Bash Cartridge.  It is so easy and no Cricut Cake needed.  Thanks for looking.
 Letters were cut at 1 inch and I used Papermania card.  I made some stick out of plastic as my cocktail sticks had gone walkabouts.  The Grandma banner was made from a border from the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art Cartridge and the letters from Birthday Bash were cut out at 1.5 inch with shadow and stuck on with plastic sticks on either side to push into the cakes.  I used balloons from Birthday Bash to decorate either side of the Banner cut at 2 inches.
Welcome also to my latest follower and thanks everyone for all your lovely comments.  Much Appreciated.  XX

Canvas's using Art Philosophy & Best Friends

Hi This is a couple of canvas's I made using the flower feature from Art Philosophy all cut at 3.5 inches and the leaves from page 43 cut out at 4.5.  The back ground paper is from a Christmas paper pack by Dovecraft and the blue card is from Coredinations and cut at FTP on my Create from page 67 Font layer and sanded the edges.  Underneath the blue card is a frame from Better Together page 21 cut at  7 inches and stuck in using foam pads to add dimension, inked all round the edges using Colorbbox pigment cat's eyes.  

The 2nd canvas is more or less the same but the background paper is from K&Company pack.
The  main cut is from Art Philosophy page 66 cut at FTP on the Create and coredination paper sanded, assorted flowers from pages 69 & 70 cut at 3.5 inches with the leaves again from page 43 cut out at 4 inches.  I used wet glue like copydex to stick the paper to the canvas and Sailor 2 in 1 glue pen for the flowers and leaves.  A Dovecraft gem was also stuck in each flower and were also inked and edged with star dust stickes to give a dew drop effect.

All in all a really easy decoration to do and they look so effective.    I am loving the Art Philosophy cartridge. Thanks for looking.
