Halloween Easel card 2014

Hi,
After I posted the card from 2015 February and March's birthday party at Jim's residence I went looking on my blog for the other paper napkin cards I have made and realized they never got from the camera to the blog.  So here is one of them.  The technique for fusing the napkin on the cardstock is pretty simple but I have found you need to use the good cling wrap as the edges do tend to curl up after awhile so using a border seems to hold them down.  Also some napkins are 2 ply and some are 3 so they need to be pulled apart very carefully to make sure all layers come off.  There are a lot of how-to's on You Tube.
Hope no one minds a Halloween card in spring.  lol
Have a blessed day.

February and March Birthday Walden Heights

Hi,
Oh yes, I know it has been a very long time since I have made and/or posted a card.  I really am trying to get back to doing this but, for some reason, it is not going as well as I had hoped.
Walden Heights Age Care facility, where my husband lives now, has a birthday party once a month. Due to illness they had to cancel February so the two months were celebrated together.
They often have live music and dancing etc..  They also have cake and juice.  This is the napkin that the birthday people receive with their cake.  I fused it onto card stock and since it seems to be the rage right now I made this into a shaker card with little music notes.
Since round or oval shapes are hard to place the pop dots around I used fun foam and cut out the shape and attached everything with my Xyron.  Works slick without too much fuss trying to get the sticky pop dots just right.  Plus, the fun foam has no sticky edges for the little music notes to stick to or get loose.  The envelope is pretty big but since I will hand deliver it I didn't worry about making it smaller to fit the card.  :)
Have a blessed day.

Bird's butterfly as a birthday card

Hi
Just a quick little card for my grand daughters birthday.  This is a file from Bird's Cards.  It is a lovely easel card.  This one is very petite and the blue is sparkly paper.
The little flowers are a sticker from eons ago.
Have a Blessed day.

Ty and Christina wedding gatefold card


Hi
My great niece got married this month and this is the card I made for them. 
It is a gatefold card with a circle front from Bird @http://teamknk.com/author/bird/
I also used Cuttlebug folder Victoria to emboss the front.  The little envelope containing the gift card and the envelope were made on the SU envelope punch board.  Her colors were navy and pink.  The banners are from Silhouette  and I don't remember where the pic of bride and groom came from.
Have a Blessed day.

Doily corners, butterflies and tea pots






Hi,
This card is a combination of files from:





http://www.birdscards.com/  and




http://shirleystemplates.blogspot.com/2014/07/butter
fly-topper-freebie.html

The gorgeous doily corners and butterfly are from http://www.birdscards.com/.
The pop up tea pot and cup are from http://extremecards.blogspot.ca/2014/06/teapot-and-cup-pop-up-card.html
The butterfly topper is from
http://shirleystemplates.blogspot.com/2014/07/butterfly-topper-freebie.html
The tea pot on the envelope is from a very long time ago and I believe it was from Sassy Lady but cannot be sure.  If it is your design please let me know and I will give you credit.
Now having said all this I want to tell you that blogger has been giving me one d----- (rhymes with evil)  of a time so I am not going to try and fix anything.  Therefore, I do hope you aren't too confused  by all the stuff all over the place.   Also, if you want to see the fabulous doily corners from Bird cut out of vellum you will have to click on the pic.  :)
Have a Blessed day.

p.s.  Couldn't remove the last two pics either and the camera wouldn't play nice with me either so that I could get a good shot of anything.  Oh my all this technical stuff is way too much for my old brain.  lol

Old fashioned screen and scene



Hi,
Here is another card I was working on and finally got a picture of.  I am still struggling with the new camera but I think the pics show the design fairly well.  The card idea came from
http://www.frenchiestamps.com/ and I love it.  I think I will be using it for a few more cards.  The scenes are from a paper pack I bought at Michael's a long time ago.  The envelope is made with the SU envelope punch board.
Have a Blessed day.
