My 251st post and some fun cards

I can't believe that number. It's crazy! When I started this I thought that I would be really bad at this blogging thing. Back then it seemed like getting a post published took a long time. There's editing and down sizing the pics plus uploading them, then typing and then if I had some links I wanted to add, I had to do that one by one. And now I feel like I'm such a pro at it! hehehehehehe.

Anyways, this post is about cards. I'm really enjoying cards right now, I think more than making pages. I know that's kinda bad to say but I think this is good, I'm learning a lot and deviating to a different type of craft always creates new inspirations.

So onto the cards....shall we.....

Just a little note to say THANKS!

this was inspired by cuttlebug's Inspired challenge #22 , where we were to stamp an image and add glitter. Now I didn't read the challenge very well and realized that I HAD to stamp onto the stamped image. Duh! Oh well, this is only for share anyways.


I stamped my sentiment and added red stickles all around it for some impact.


I used my embossing template to give my background card a little more personality and then used my scrap papers to make my flowers. The die is also from cuttlebug. I believe it's the asterisk one.

Your Special day card

This one was based on the CPS sketch #106.


I used scraps here. The starts were cut from a punch and I distressed the edges a little. The sentiment was cut from a pattern paper.


I made the stars "pop" out with pop up dots.

have a great weekend and till next time,
Grace
