B is for Boy card

I used the B is for Boy cartridge to make this cute card. The planet came from Everday Paper Dolls. 

 I need to start making more "boy" cards for my Operation Write Home box. I want to fill it up. I'm about half way there with 40 cards right now.

Teddy Bear Parade card

This is definitely a favorite card that I've made. The cut is from Teddy Bear Parade. I added some glossy accents to look like the rain water along with some Studio G glitter glue.

Enamel dots

So I experimented making my own enamel dots for some cards. There are a number of ways that I found to do this on YouTube, but I decided to go with items that I already have on hand in my stash. I used a 12 inch long strip of small glue dots and placed small google eyes on each dot. Next I used some nail polish and painted the dots. It was pretty simple because once they are dry they're already on a glue dot to use. 

I ran the cupcake liner through my paper crimper to make it look like a real liner. I put the icing cut through my Cuttlebug with the Divine Swirl folder. This is a simple card, but I really love it.

The cupcake is from Create a Critter, but I removed the face so the sprinkles would  look better.

Nerdy Nummy cookie

I manipulated this quite a bit on my Gypsy. I used Seseme Street Friends for the cookie, Mustaches and Glasses for the glasses and George and Basic Shapes for the circles.

There is a show on YouTube called, "Nerdy Nummies" that has a cookie like this and I thought it would make a cute card. 

Here's the link for how to make the real Nerdy Nummies cookies.

Nifty Fifties card

I've been going through my stamp sentiments to get inspiration to make cards. I found this sentiment and originally wanted to do dice, but after searching I realized that I didn't have a cut for dice.
