My Bendi Card

Over at Splitcoaststampers, they had a tutorial for a Bendi card.  What a fun card to make.  Their tutorial had a spring theme.  Mine is very similar but mine has a Thanksgiving theme.  I know that the Keep Calm saying is really popular right now so I created a Keep Calm and Give Thanks cutout with my silhouette.  The cornstalks, pumpkins, and vines were also cut files.  The tree and fence are dies from Memory Box.  The grass is a die from Sweet N Sassy Stamps

I hope you enjoy!

Glitter Strips

My granddaughter turned 11 the other day.  For her birthday she got a room makeover from her mom and dad.  The colors are bold and classy!   Dark Aqua and Hot Pink!!  Lots of blue/black or pink/black zebra print and I think some leopard too!  A BIG grownup change from the pretty princesses that we had painted on the wall.  It was really sad to see the princess go........we had soooo many hours into painting them.  BUT her room looks more grown up just like she does! 

I made this card for her to match the colors of her room.  The sticker (cupcake) is a removable sticker that she can put on her mirror.  If you go to Youtube and search for Elizabeth Craft, then look for the repositionable sticker video, she'll show you all about making them.  They are really easy and fun!!

After I made my granddaughter's card, I made another to have for my stash!
