Happy 4th of July!!!

Good morning everyone!!! Today we celebrate the birth of our nation and I created an accordion fold pop up cards, I didn't have the die to cut these with so I had to improvise a bit Using my Cricut Explore I designed a cut that would do the same thing. I also used one of the new Sunsational Stamps digital stamp "Hooray for the 4th of July". for this card.


I colored the stars with "Bic Mark-It " markers, then cut them by hand and pop doted them to the circles. I used the writing feature on my cricut to write the sentiment on one of the white circles The star patterned paper is from my stash don't recall where I got it from. 

Thanks for stopping by and having a look. You can find   digital stamps at  Sunsational Digital Stamps .

My second project I used the "The Future Looks Bright Boy" stamps set


and created this card


I used my Explore to create the oval frame in two layers. I cut the oval a bit to wide and had to place my image off to one side a bit I used some tbs to fill in the space to the right a little  The lite blue layer was dry embossed with a Key pattern which I thought was a nice touch. I colored the image with the same markers as for the first one. I also added a diploma cut with my Explore.

Happy St Patricks Day!!!

Top of the Morning to you!! My dear Irish Grandma was fond of saying that on St Patrick's  Day.
I was compelled by my Irish roots to create this little card and I used this adorable stamp from "Sunsational Stamps" called Patty which can be found here!


I colored her with my Bic Mark-Its pens and with the pale hues "Spectrum Noir" pens that I recently purchased to try out The LUCK was stamped with a dollar stamps from Micheal's as was the sentiment. Lots of paper and card stock from my stash. I was going to put glass effects on her eyes but forgot I think it would have added a nice twinkle to he lovely green eyes.

Thanks for stopping by, all comments are greatly appreciated.

The card measures 4 x 5.5. The yellow pattern paper is from Colorbok "Carnival" 6 x 6 pad, the green solid is Recollections card stock, and the ribbon is from the Dollar Tree.
