Happy Botday Dante!

I've said it before, but I love robots! And nothing says young boys birthday more than a birthday card with a robot on it.

We went to a birthday party for 6 year old cousin Dante this past weekend. Here's the card I made for him.

Here's a closeup of the Best Bots Forever stamps from Stampin' Up.

The embossed background was created with an embossing plate from Papertrey Ink.

It's been a busy week here, so I'll make this short and sweet. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

A Love Maze - Inspired by Aga

Happy Friday! I saw this amazing card designed by Agnieszka (Aga) on Pinterest last week and I just had to create one!

I started with a maze design from Silhouette Studio. I cut it out 4 times with my Silhouette SD and glued the 4 layers together to give some dimension off the card. 

In this picture you can see how the maze pops off the card base.

I finished off the card with two heart-shaped gems. That's it! Thanks for the inspiration, Aga!

Happy Birthday Mr. G.!

Hi there! I made this card for my son's principal who celebrated a birthday this week. He is a huge proponent of up-cycling. Last year he took apart an old broken laminating machine and converted it into a piece of metal art. His home and outdoor living spaces should be featured in a home decor magazine; his house is that amazing!

I couldn't make him a card without using some recycled element. The "happy birthday" on the card is die cut letters from some Starbucks "java jackets". I used the Block Alphabet Die Collection from Papertrey Ink and my Big Shot machine. I love how the corrugated paper actually came out looking look wood.

The star is also recycled paper from another project with chunky glitter glued to the front.

Thanks for stopping by!
