Make A Card Monday #7 - Happy Easter

Happy Monday!  I don't about you but I am ready for spring to arrived.  We have went from snow to ice and now we are expecting snow/rain mix.  The warm weather is a couple of weeks.  Well, that's what I am telling myself.
Today, I have an Easter card using products from the February Stamps of Life Card Kit.  I kept this card pretty simple.  The kit included two egg dies that coordinated with the pattern paper, which I used for my die cut eggs.  I popped up the layer with some dimensional adhesive. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Thank you for stopping by!

Theme Day Thursday - Make It Punny #4

Welcome to Theme Day Thursday!  This is the last week of the Make It Punny series.  I have really enjoyed creating some punny-ilicous cards.  With that said, it's only appropriate to close the series with using the That's Punny-ilicous stamp set from My Pink Stamper.

Everyone knows what Man's Best Friend is, but what about a Woman's Best Friend?  I love how this card came out.  I decided to bring out my Cricut Explore to cut my image.  I used the Princess Party cartridge to cut out the shoe.  I kept the card pretty simple, but I did add a rhinestone for a little bling.

Thank you for stopping by today!

TDT - Make It Punny #3

Hello friends! Welcome to Theme Day Thursday!  This month, I am creating cards using punny sentiments. 

I am showcasing 2 sets from the Stamps of Life: cats2stamp and sayings4cats.  I don't have any animals, but I love how adorable cats look.  I use to be very scared of cats because my grandmother's cat scratched me on the face when I was 5-years-old.  The cat was 18 at the time and didn't like children.  Lesson learned. 
For my first card, I used the Friendship Forever Step-up card die.  I just love these dies because it makes creating cards so much easier.  I used papers from the Stamps of Life October card kit.  I colored my kitty using copic markers (Y15 and Y17).
For my next card, I used the Exclusive Fancy Edge Flip-it Die for the card base.  Using the sayings4cat, I stamped some paw prints on my Fancy #6 label die.

For my last card, I used the Basic Step Up die, which I think is so adorable.  It's very versatile, check out the video for other ideas for using this die. 

I had so much fun creating with these stamp sets.  You can purchase all of the products shown from the Stamps of Life!
