Happy Birthday!!

I thought I'd share a fun shaped card today. I used one of my latest printable sets from The Cutting Cafe. The party hat shaped card is from the set called Party Hat Shaped card set which can be found HERE and the Fun with Party Hats set found HERE.
Both sets are a must have and would be perfect for birthday parties and projects alike. As you can see in the close-up photo I paired it up with a sentiment from The Birthday Tags set which can be found HERE.
Challenges: Paper Pretties- use punches or die cuts

Digital Tuesday Challenge

This week's Digital Tuesday Challenge is all about using your stash. You know you have stuff laying around just waiting to get used so now is the time to put it to good use....great use.

This week's sponsor is Spesch Stamps. You know the place with the great digi's and also clear stamps. Remember to have a chance to win you must use a digital element on your project.

For my project this week I used the image Bonnie digital stamp from Spesch Stamps. It' still one of my favorite images from our sponsor this week. I paired it up with a couple of printables from The Cutting Cafe. The XoXo background can be found HERE and the Hershey's Kiss Valentine Bottoms can be found HERE.

Hope you play along this week and before I forget, Happy Valentine's Day!!

Hey Tootsie!!

If you are a fan of shaped cards then you should really like this one.

For my tootsie roll cards I used two different printable sets from The Cutting Cafe. The shaped card template is called The Candy Shaped Card Set and it can be found HERE. Included in the set is an adorable peppermint shaped card. I can't wait to play with that one.

The sentiment tags were made using the Candy Sentiment Set found HERE. Included with this set are various colored backgrounds that will be a welcomed addition to any project. Now onto card 1:

I thought ribbon would be a fun addition to the first card. That way its not 2 Dimensional. I used SU tag punches to cut out the sentiment. Here's a close-up of Card 2's sentiment:

Card 2 looks a little more old-fashioned than the first. I decided to add a couple of buttons and used tacky tape so I could attach the baker's twine.

Both cards came together very quickly and are pretty sweet.

The Crazy Challenge

I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of Mondays. Luckily I've joined the Crazy Challenge DT so my Monday's will be a little brighter. Being able to use and adorable image like the one below helps.

If you haven't heard about the Crazy Challenge here's the scoop: There is a new theme, new sponsor and new prize each week. You can make a card, scrapbook page, photo frame, or anything you think of. To qualify for the prize you need to follow the theme and to link it to Mr. Linky on the challenge blog.

For my challenge card this week I used the image called The key to my heart Cecila fairy with key which can be found HERE. It's an adorable image and great for Valentine's Day.

Since the image is in digital form I did a quick flip with Photoshop and made the image face the opposite direction. She was also easily sized to my specifications. What's not to love about digital images?

Here's a quick Valentine's Day card I made with one of the latest printable sets from The Cutting Cafe.

The set is called Feb. 14th and is perfect for any addition to a Valentines Day project. It is a huge set of 41 black and white images and 41 colored images. It's a very versatile set. You can see all the images on the Cutting Cafe site. You'll be amazed at just how much is in this set.

For my card, I decided to keep it sweet and simple. I wanted to let the sentiment shine. And remember that you can cut out individual sentiments like I did for the word Adore shown below. It just goes to show you just how much you can do with this one set.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new project.
