Here is a cute card for a friend - I used the Hostess Reward set from page 7 
of the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book.
I used the gorgeous Laughing Lola Paper and Black and Gypsy inks.
I added the White Enamel shapes over the stamped triangle images
and then lots of Purple Glitter Gems to make it sparkle.
I used the Scallop Border Punch and piercing tool on the black cardstock.

She Believed She Could .....

I earned this little stamp set at a recent CTMH event here just outside of Detroit.
Close To My Heart held a fun evening of creating and during the business session I won this cute mini stamp. 
It really does sum up my business and work ethic - especially when it comes to earning the 
CTMH Cruises and Land Tours.
I used the beautiful Skylark paper pack and added Teal Shimmer Trim and Aqua Dots.
Hope you like it :O)  Love Sara xxxx

Belated Birthday Card.

Here is a fun and very easy card featuring the Embedded Embossing technique.
I used White Daisy cardstock and added circles cut in Lagoon, Pear, Cotton Candy and Whisper cardstock.
Then I ran it through the embossing machine using the Dot background.
I used the Belated Birthday stamp set and stamped the cake in Lagoon Ink and the words in Slate and Black.
Flamingo Dots made perfect 'frosting' on the cake :O)

'Hooray' - Timberline Owl card

Dawn Montagano again was the designer of this card which I altered a little to suit my style.
I added 3 rows of Chocolate Woodgrain Washi Tape over the Chevron Embossed background and the gorgeous Woodgrain paper from the Timberline paper.
The scolloped circle is from the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge - I then pieced tiny holes around the edge.
Here we just used the word Hooray - on a thin piece of cardstock.
Honey Triangle Washi Tape and Silver Metallic Washi tape add a fun accent to the 
bottom right hand side of the card - along with a flower image embellishment from the Lollydoodle Assortment.

Balloon Ride WOTG Card - class project - Cricut Art Philosophy.

I do like to make cards which have a different opening method.
This one opens like a matchbook.
I used the stamp set from the Balloon Ride WOTG and stamped the large image in Sorbet ink.
I stamped the 'Stamps' in Cashmere and Crystal Blue inks and the scroll image on the Saddle cardstock in Saddle Ink.
Bronze shimmer trim adds sparkle to the bottom of the card and then I have used some retired
Chocolate flower buttons with s Brow Sparkle in the center to add a little more accent to it.
Hope you like it - Love Sara xxx

You've Got A Friend card - class project

I really like the color combination on this card - Smoothie and Sweet Leaf give it a fun Spring feel.
This would be perfect for a congratulations card for exams or end of school year or as a thank you for a teacher :O)
I also added the small star from my favorite ever stamp set - Love Life and the dark smoothie and Whisper images are actually from the Charming Chevron set.
Smoothie Stripe Washi Tape over white cardstock (which really makes the color pop) and a piece of silver shimmer trim completes the right hand side of the card.
I stamped the image twine and popped up the center of the image on 3D foam tape.
2 clear sparkles finish it off.
Hope you like it :O)

You've Got A Friend In Me - Washi Tape Card

Here is a quick and easy card :O)
I used the Smoothie Washi Tape and Silver Metallic Washi Tape along with 
Silver shimmer trim to decorate the background of the card.
I used both Whisper and Slate Cardstock squares behind the saying which I stamped in Smoothie Ink.
I LOVE the fact that our embellishments (Washi Tape, embellishments etc - match our inks and papers - it makes for a much more professional finished project )
I added a tiny white ribbon bow from the Laughing Lola embellishments and clear sparkles and a couple of tiny scraps of Shimmer Trim behind the bow.
Super easy, Super quick and Super Cute :O)

Silver Shimmer Trim added sparkle to the top.
I can't tell you how much I love this one - hope you do too :O)

Give a Lift Card

I saw a card which had been made by the uber talented Liza Stenz where she had
layered the pieces of this beautiful balloon - so I totally stole her idea :O)
I used the Balloon Ride paper which I adore.
I stamped the Hot Air Ballon image 4 times - twice on the blue patterned paper,
once on the cream patterned paper and once on Saddle cardstock.
I cut the the entire balloon image out of the 2 blue bases, and just the center band out of the
cream patterned paper and just the center piece from the Saddle cardstock.
I stamped the entire image onto the Colonial White cardstock center piece and then 
the first blue base was attached directly to it  and the other 3 pieces were attached with 
3D foam tape between them.
I stamped the basket and the flowers on a second piece of colonial white cardstock and carefully
cut out the image - I cut away some of the thinner flower stems just leaving the larger ones
to make it easier.
Then I colored the base image and the overlay with the Watercolor Pencils.
Again 3D foam tape popped it up for dimension.
I added a sparkle accent from the Rosewood Mini Medley and then either side of the Hot Air Balloon 
I added pieces of the Zipstrip. Bronze Shimmer Trim and lastly Balloon Ride B&T finished 
the center section.
I stamped the word Welcome in Cocoa ink and added a 2nd sparkle accent from the 
Rosewood Mini Medley.
I was thrilled with the finished result and hope you like it too xxx

You've Got A Friend Stamp of the Month Card

Here is a fun 'End of School' card for a teacher or favorite student
I used the paper from the Jubilee Level 2 paper pack and added the Distressed Backgrounds
stamp set - using the chicken wire image (Love this image)
The paper and stamped images also give it a fun 'Summer Fair' feel.
I stamped the apple image in Ruby ink and then cut out a 'mask' and covered the word and then
sponged more Ruby ink over the image - this way it really draws your eye to the word which
is still un-inked.
Bronze shimmer trim and Durable round studs finish it off :O)
Hope you like it

Balloon Ride WOTG Scrapbook Layout

Oh how I love this paper - it is so, so pretty when you see it in person
It is so difficult to see all of the pretty details on a 2" square in the Idea Book so I can't wait to share this with my Lovely Ladies this month.
I added Tan Glitter paper and stamped the triangular image in Juniper Ink on the Juniper cardstock.
I used Sorbet Ink on the saying and then added the Sparkle flourishes and Balloon Ride Assortment resin flowers along with the Matching Dimensional Elements to embellish the page.
I was thrilled with the results - hope you like it too :O)
