Rose Tag Set - PPPR DT day

Another Monday, wow, they seem to come faster lately!!  I hope you had a good weekend.  It was dance recital weekend for us so a weekend filled with dance is a good weekend when you are a dance teacher and a mother of 2 dancers!!  Today I have a set of tags to share with you that I made to put on some gifts we will be giving to my daughter's dance teachers for the "end of the year" gifts.

To make my tags I used the following -
stickles, adhesive pearls, glossy accentrs

Thanks for stopping by today!!  I have jury duty all week so not expecting a lot of (or any at all) crafting time for me.  Take care!!

Mother's Day Card - 3GJ dt

Today is my day to post for the 3 Girl JAM design team and I have a Mother's Day card to share with you.  I used some of the new lime green flower die cut ribbon.  I just love this new set of ribbon, the "Flower Bundle".

My watering can and flowers are from the Silhouette Online Store.  I added some 3 Girl JAM Daffodil crinkle ribbon to the spout of my watering can.  My sentiment is from My Creative Time's "Small Talk" set.  I used some glossy accents on the centers of my flowers and added a butterfly sticker from Recollections.  I did a bit of inking and doodling with my white gel pen to finish off my card.  This sweet baby is headed off to my very own mom.  So, mom, if you see this before it gets to you - Happy Mother's Day!!

Birthday Cupcake Shaker Card - PPPR dt

Happy Cinco de Mayo folks!!  Today is my day to post for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I have a birthday card to share with you that I made for my oldest daughter's birthday last week.  I decided to be fancy and make a shaker card too since it is for a special person :-)

I used the cupcake from the PPPR Birthday Critters Cutting files for my cupcake.  I created an offset and welded it to my "window" frame.  I attached acetate to the back of that and then put foam tape all around the edges of the frame.  I sprinkled in some micro beads and sequins and then attached my card base to my window frame.  I used a very heavy white cardstock for my card base so that it would hold the weight of the window frame better.  I finished my card off with some 3 Girl JAM "Baby Girl" crinkle ribbon and a sentiment from the "Make a Wish" set from Cardz TV Stamps.  The enamel dots are homemade from perler beads I melted and I blinged up the flame of the candle with diamond stickles.
