Guest Designer for Scrapping 4 Fun!

I have the privilege of being a guest designer for Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.  Their challenge this month is to use a technique.  I chose flower sculpting as my technique.  When Tauna and I went to Expo this spring, we took two classes on paper flower sculpting and I figured it was time to give it a try on my own.  I made this card for my son-in-law's grandmother who is in the hospital.  I wanted to  let her know we were thinking of her and about having to spend Mother's Day in the hospital.  She seemed quite pleased with both the little visit and the card.  The flower dies as well as the butterfly ones are from Cherry Lynn.  So is most the greenery.  The small greenery is a MS punch.  I used TH Aged Mahogany and Peeled paint to ink almost everything.  I used Chestnut roan around the mats.  I added a little stickles to the butterflies.  The sentiments are both from a set by Stampendous.  I used my nesties for the circles and a Whimsey die for the other sentiment.  Thank you all for stopping by and special thanks to Scrapping 4 Fun for giving me this opportunity!  God bless you all.

Birthday card for my Mother

I have seen so many of these card in a box cards and am fascinated by them.  I was trying to come up with something different for my Mother's birthday this year and came across a card made by Sandi Maclver on you tube and just loved it.  I followed her teaching as closely as I could but did not have the stamps and punches and such as she used so had to wing it with what I did have.  Mom was very pleased with it and I have heard she is showing it off to everyone she can at the home!  I cut the balloons with my cricut. The circles were cut with the cuttlebug and the cupcakes and candles were hand cut.  I cut strips of cream paper and then scored and folded it to make the cupcake papers.  I used Perfect Pearls for the frosting and then sprinkled some glitter confetti on it while it was still wet.  The sentiment stamp is from Cuddly Buddly.  A little stickles here and there and ink all around finished this card!  This card was fun to make and the tutorial is very easy to follow!  I want to thank Sandi for sharing her talent with everyone and for helping me create a special card for my mother.
