A Deer Friend

Today I have another Creative Cuts and More project to share.

I started with a Arch Window A6 Card die cut from Neenah White cardstock.

The Deer is Cottage Cutz die,  Elegant Reindeer.
I added a Small Pine Tree and a Large Pine Tree to complete the scene.

I don't remember who made the cloud paper but lots of companies make cloud paper so you should have no trouble finding some.

The sentiment is from an AmyR sentiment stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed today's quick and easy project!

Fish Bowl Card

Today I have a fun birthday wishes Fishbowl shape card for you to see.
I used a stamp set out of my stash that my sister gave me which I have no idea of the brand and the swirl embossing folder from sizzix for the water. I just love how the one fish is holding balloons and the other one a cupcake. What a fun card for a sweet child or fun adult to receive for their birthday.

Hallowee Sliding Pop Up Card

I have a fun card that I made with a Sliding Pop Up Card from Creative Cuts and More!

These cards look difficult but with the pre cut die from Creative Cuts and More they are really pretty easy to put together and all your friends will be so impressed!

I can't find the picture I took of it flat and ready to mail but here it is as you begin to pull on the ribbon and it slides open.

Here's How it looks from the front when it is open all the way.

The Cling Scared Cat Kiddo image from Stampendous comes just like you see the main image.  
 To create the border I stamped just the pumpkin part of the stamp with VersaMark ink and embossed with Paprika Embossing Powder from the Scenic Selection Embossing Kit.  then I added a little color to the pumpkins with my chalks.

The words are from the Happy Messages Clear Stamp Set by Stampendous and were embossed with Detail Black Embossing Powder.

There are lots of great 3D type card dies available at Creative Cuts and More.
They make you look like a pro with out all the stress!

I popped up the book for some added dimension on this little guy used a bunch of different pattern papers for some added drama as well. It really gives this card that back to school feeling.
Love the look of Kraft, Reds and Blues for the fall...
Now if the weather would get in the right temps for fall!

Have a wonderful  Labor day everyone, enjoy!
