Simple box birthday card!

I made this card from a tutorial on you tube. Here is the link;
This card is for my brother in law Miguel's 40th bday.We are having a surprise party for him on Saturday & I wanted to make something different for him.Hope you like it.I used all my scraps again on this card.It's been lots of fun trying to find exactly the right card stock & designer paper to match up with just scraps, but my scrap drawers are finally going down somewhat.Have a wonderfully blessed weekend.

When you open the card it's a lil box inside.I think I might make some confetti with a quickutz birthday candle die cut to go inside.

Happy Valentines Card

I made this card using my cricut.I don't use my Cricut very often, because I'm kinda intimidated by all the cartridges you need & I only have 2 so far.I'm going to try to use it more often this year along with my resolution to use my scraps up I have decided to make using my Cricut another resolution too.Well I hope you enjoy this  card & hope my hubby does too.It's for him for Valentine's Day.

House Mouse & Friends Challenge #88-All About Hearts

This card is made with 5x5 white CS.Using pink 5x5 CS on the top of card base. I then  pulled out my Martha Stewart around the page punch (loops heart) & white CS also in 5x5 & punched each corner then proceeded to finish all around my 5x5.Then I made a 3.5x3.5 square of a deeper pink CS & used the (loops heart) on the corners only.I stamped my House Mouse stamp (Make A Wish 02)with Memento tuxedo black ink on a 3x3 piece of white CS.Stamped hearts in a blowing pattern across the 3x3square, to make it look like the mouse was blowing hearts as he was blowing candle out on cupcake.I used my Copic markers B0000,B02,B12,W3,
E30,E11,E93,Y04,R20, & RV21, for all the stamped images.I then matted my 5x5 pink CS onto card base then followed that with the 5x5( loops heart) white CS, then came the dark pink 3.5x3.5 & on top of that came my 3x3 stamped CS.I die cut a heart from same pink CS  on top of card base & pop dotted it onto the cupcake.I then stamped Birthday Wishes onto light pink CS & matted that onto dark pink CS, I also pop dotted this too.I used 4 of the hearts from leftovers from punch image & adhered these to each corner.I made a bow out of baby pink fine ribbon & adhered it to the top of card.Everything on here was from my scraps.Hope you enjoy this card.I had a blast making it.

Thank you card

I made this card from scraps again, I've been reorganizing my scrapping space & found that I have 6- 12x12 drawers full of scraps.I needed to use these up & make room for some awesome scrapbook paper I have under my desk.So I have been only using scraps for every card I make lately.The stamp is one I bought at a yard sale, I love this stamp.I used my copics to color this image & stickles for the middle of the flowers.I roughed up the edges with my distress tool & cut out square to fit my stamped & matted image into.Hope you enjoy this card.have a Happy Saturday.

My New Rubber Stamp Shelves

I bought these 2 shelving units from a local party supply store that is closing down.I paid $10 a piece, these are the exact shelves I had in my mind that I wanted.I painted the inside backs white & touched up the black paint where needed.They fit all my stamps perfectly, my hubby said I don't need anymore because there is no more room.He just doesn't see that I can fit plenty more up here, HEHE.I hope you enjoy this, I was so excited to find these shelves & still am amazed at my luck.My bff told me about store closing around a month ago & I never made it over there, but last week I was nearby & had just made $30 from my cleaning job & decided to go check it out ,soooooo that's how I  happened to have the money for them.
