Lovely Deer Birthday

Guess what? Someone is having another birthday. I bet you can't tell what their interest is. Just in case you can't figure it out, I will tell you. He loves to hunt with his dad.

This card was fun to make. I put a lot of detail into it. I cut out the pine tree (lovely as a tree) and the deer (nature silhouettes). I wanted them to stand out and look like they were in the front and the line of trees are in the background. I think it worked. I was not going to put the strip of dsp (autumn spice) vertically going through the background at first. I had cut it off of the mat to make it fit on the base of the card better. When I was almost finished I put it on the background scene and loved the look.

I wanted to add a little bit of "wow" to the card by adding crystal effects to the trees. I used the same effect on another card I did a few weeks ago for my husband. It just adds a lot to the card.

Here are 2 different views of the card which show the dimension. Like I said before. I had fun making this card. I always love to see the end results. I never know when I start what it will look like in the end. I think that is part of the fun of making a card.

As always, I used all Stampin' Up! products. I mentioned some of the items above that were used. Here is a list of some of the other things.
Cardstock: cajun craze, whisper white, autumn spice dsp
Stamp sets: nature silhouettes, lovely as a tree, and teeny tiny wishes
Ink: crumb cake, old olive, early espresso, more mustard, and cajun craze
Tools: stampin' sponge, modern label punch, word window punch, and crystal effects

Now it is your turn to tell me what you think. Please leave a comment!! I also pray this inspires you to pull out your stamps and cardstock and create a card or 3-d project for someone you love or has made a difference in your life.
Thanks for visiting my little part of the world.
Now go-n-stamp!!

Pumpkin Cupcake

My daughter had her 20th birthday just a few days ago. I wanted to come up with a cupcake that had a pumpkin for decoration around the cupcake wrapper. Well, you need to tell me what you think of the end result. I had to laugh. Instead of it looking like a cupcake, it kind of looks like a pumpkin with a fro. I was disappointed at first with the end result, but it has grown on me and I do like it.

These are the Stampin' Up! materials I used to make this card.

Cardstock: cajun craze, naturals ivory, more mustard, and autumn spice DSP; Stamps: autumn harvest and crazy for cupcakes; Tools: dazzling diamonds glitter and crystal effects; Accessories: 1/4" very vanilla taffeta ribbon; Ink: early espresso and cajun craze.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I would love for you to tell me what you thought of the pumpkin cupcake too. Leave me a comment!
