Altered CD Case

My daughter wanted so badly for her friends to have these as a thank you gift for coming to her 9th birthday party.  I had ordered some of the Clear Mount Stamp Cases (4 for $4.95).  We measured the lining, scored the folds and started decorating.

She loves to sponge edges as much as I do so she had very pretty finger tips when she was done.  To do the Crown we stamped and embossed first.  We then masked the crown with another crown that I had stamped and cut out on a piece of scratch paper.  So when we stamped the "My Friend" it looked like it was behind the crown.  The butterfly was sprayed with the shimmer paint/rubbing alcohol mixture to give it just a bit of glimmer.

The inside we decided to put a post-it note pad, pen held on with a cable clip and a pack of gum stuck on with glue dots, all she thought we needed to add was a stick of lip balm...but we do not have any stores within a 30 min drive so she got what I had on hand. ;-)  (Her friends loved them anyway!)

Happy Anniversary

I needed a simple anniversary card quick.  I found this layout and thought it would be perfect for what I was looking for.  You could anything you wanted on the 4 panels to go with any card.  I thought a cute punch art wedding cake would be cute too....someday I might remember to actually make that one.

I have been trying to do more on the insides of the cards and so this is what I came up with that still gave me room to sign all of our names. ;-)

Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Small Heart Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, 2 Step Bird Punch, Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon, Corner Rounder Punch, Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Impression Embossing Folder

Happy Anniversary Heath & Lois!

I have had this card on my list of things to do for a very long time.  Our eldest son and his wonderful wife celebrate their 5th anniversary today and I could not think of a better card for them.  For those who want a tutorial, it can be found on Splitcoast.  It was not as hard to make as I thought it would be.  The designing is what took me so long (about 3 hours) but now that I know what I am doing they should go a lot faster next time.

I sponged all of the edges...;-)

The flowers were punched, sponged and edges curled.  They were adhered with glue dots to the card.  I used the small side of  crop-a-dile to get the center of the flower and adhered it with the Mono-adhesive and a toothpick to put it just where I wanted it.  The Amour is popped up on Dimensionals.

I slit the edges of the center, bottom panel with my craft knife and slid the ribbon around to tie.  I made sure it stayed where I wanted it to be with a few glue dots.

The butterfly is cut out twice.  The bottom one is glued flat while the top one is folded with some more glue dots ran down the center

The Happy Anniversary just barely fit...I am so glad that it did!  The bottom panel was left blank so that we could sign the card.
