Birthday Celebration with Die Cuttin' Divas

Happy Tuesday! Happy Birthday as well (to all those celebrating in September) which is what we want to celebrate at Die Cuttin' Divas this week.  Show us your birthday projects.
I made this fun birthday card to have on hand for upcoming birthdays (my supply was getting a little low).  In order to get started I decided to just open a new package of paper and use only those colors for my card before I sorted the colors into my stash.
I like how these colors go with each other so well - and the card could be for a man or a women. Once I had my color combo I selected my images and cut them out.  I added a few extra touches with some embossing and a little bow.
The final touch was the sentiment on the inside. I love this fun birthday sentiment. (Who doesn't love treats on their birthday - cake or otherwise).
A happy week to  you all and thank you  so much for visiting my little craft space today! I hope you can join us at Die Cuttin Divas this week.

Sweet As Pie

As we get further and further into the fall I know many enjoying apple picking.  This week at Bitten By the Bug 2 our hostess wants to see projects featuring apples so that is just right.
I thought...hmm apples make great pie and that is where my card started. I wanted the sentiment "Sweet as pie" but that was not in my library so...
*Un-group image if needed and hide the things you want in the contours. Do the same with all images. I added PIE to the original ad used the slice feature to add it in. 
I found 2 cuts and put them together after some contouring and slicing. I love that I can do this on Design Space.
Next for this card I played around with patterns - if you select print instead of cut you can go in and add patterns to your cuts.  I thought this rolling pin would be better in a wood grain and the backing needed a table cloth feel.  Such fun ways to play.

Thanks for visiting with me today.  I hope you get a chance to play with us at Bitten By the Bug 2.

My Smiles Begin with You!

Good day all. Happy Tuesday. It is the first Tuesday of September and time for a new sketch challenge with Die Cuttin' Divas.
This fun card was made using our sketch for this week.
I wanted to use this sentiment stamp on my project so I found an image to fit it and this one seemed like a cute idea for my hubby.
A little print and cut and embossing for the added hearts not on the cut and my card was completed.
Hope you get a chance to play along with our fun sketch this week at DCD!

Welcome to September everyone.  It is the first challenge of the month for Bitten By the Bug 2 and this week our host, Susan, asked us to use a pair of glasses on our projects.
I love the retro look of these glasses and they matched my sentiment stamp so well. I also really loved the added touch of this embossing folder.
All the stars on the project are the stars that are part of the glasses cut.  I just made them bigger to add onto the card.  Such fun. Hope you can join us this week at Bitten By the Bug 2.
