Hippo Birdie - CDD dt

Hello there!!  I hope your week is going well so far,  Today is my turn to post over on the Craftin Desert Divas BLOG and I have a couple of fun birthday tags to share with you :-)  To create my tags, I mixed and matched some old and new CDD products - 



Here is a closer look - 


I like keeping tags on hand to slide into a gift bag - sometimes they are a quick "grab and go" item as we rush out of the house on the way to a party.  (I am sure that never happens to you - wink! wink!)

To create my tags I used one of my favorite CDD mini stamp sets - "Hippo Birdie".  I stamped and colored everything and then fussy cut my little guys out and popped them up on my tags with some foam tape.  To create my tags I used the "Tag It" stamp set and coordinating "Tag It" SVG file.   I stamped the outline of my tag using Momento "LuLu Lavendar" ink.  I finished off my card by embossing my sentiment in white (I masked off the part I didn't want to stamp) and then using the new "Flag Banner Dies" to cut it out.  

One last look ;)


Well, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today!!  I hope I have inspired you to mix and match the old with the new and create something fun today!!

Monster Birthday Card - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' BLOG and I have a monster-iffic birthday card to share with you!!  I created this card for my nephew ;)



I used "Little Monsters 2" cutting files for my monster and "Happy Bird-Day" cutting files for my balloon.  I popped my little monster up on some foam tape and then adhered him to a white panel backed with some black cardstock.  I then popped that layer up on some more foam and popped it up (offsetting it a bit) onto my card base.  I adhered a strip of blue striped paper to the left side of my card base before adhering the top layer.



 


Thanks for stopping by today!!
