Thinking of you

Sorry for the angle, I was trying to show the green leaves underneath. (didn't work) I combined two challenges that I wanted to do and I'm really happy how it turned out. Whimsical wednesday ( patriotic-brads, bling, or buttons) and designed 2 delight (red, white + blue & or christmas, too!)
How I did it:
I didn't have a thinking of you stamp so I free handed it
Base: 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
layer 1white: 3 x 3 1/4
layer 2 blue: 3 x 2 3/4
layer 3 red: 2 1/2 x 2 3/4
ek success punch
pearl bling on the corners
white gel pen for faux stitching and sentiment

it's a love thing

I was looking at this stamp and I based a card around it. I also made 2 more like it for a set. I really like this stamp set. I can't remember what the name of it was. I'm really happy how the card turned out. When I finished I spaced putting the stamp saying that I wanted on there, so I put it on the inside. I says "it's a love thing." I wish I could put it on the outside but it wasn't on a single line.
How i did it:
base: 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
layer 1: 4 x 4
1 1/2 wide ribbon
layer 2: 3 1/4 x 3
layer 3: 3 x 2 3/4

My niece and I made this card. She picked out what she wanted and I put everything together. She wanted a star card for her dad. I did this for the father's day challenge at
How we did it:
Star card: wild card

I made this card for the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. We had to use the Pooh and Friends cloud. Once I saw that cloud I thought... baby. I was trying to make the card look soft and wispy like clouds. There are details on the card that you can't see. Such as around the base layer is a soft baby blue inking. I also used embossing glitter to give it a shimmer. I'm really pleased how it turned out.

I been wanting to do a floating card ever since I saw it on My Craft spot. Here is a link to her video.
 I complicated it but if you follow her instructions I'm sure it will turn out. I just winged mine that is why my dimensions are weird.

Here is the inside of the card.

and the sentiment. I love this I found it from a quote book that my mom gave me. Actually from the same book that I used for the last card.
How I did it:
4 3/4 x 6 for base
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 for 1st layer
3 3/4 x 3 3/4 for frame
1/2 inch all away around the frame
cloud and shadow: Pooh and Friends: 1 1/2"
star stamp: basic backgrounds: stampin up!
5 1/2 x 4 1/2 for inside layer
baby blue inking around base
white inking around 1st layer
a la mode embossing powder
