It’s a Boy


My cousin is expecting a baby boy. I created this card for her baby shower.

The hippo and balloons outline stickers areĀ from Krazy Kreations. Click here to see how I add glitter to an outlineĀ sticker and then color it.

NOTE: I added the nose and mouth pieces to the hippo after it was colored and glittered.

Adding string on balloons can be a bit challenging, so I wanted to show you a couple of ways to do it.


For these balloons, I placed some Designer Dries Clear Adhesive under the balloons and stuck the string into the middle of the puddle of glue. I knew I wanted to use dimensional foam adhesive to adhere the hippo, so I secured the bottoms of the strings with a piece of transparent tape. Super easy!



Then I added a sentiment from Elizabeth Craft Designs and some google eyes … what do you think?


Beautiful Birthday Card



A beautiful, elegant and sparkly birthday card is easy to make with products from Elizabeth Crafts.

I made this one for my mother-in-law.

For the background, I used Shimmer Sheetz and an embossing folder to create the background. Then I used sandpaper to take off the color on the raised edges, leaving them white.

The sentiment is a sticker.

The cupcake is another sticker, filled with glitter and then colored with Copic markers. I love this technique from Elizabeth Crafts. Please remember, this is the ONLY glitter that is safe to color on. Other glitters may ruin your marker nibs.

To keep up the sparkle, I added a bit of gray metallic paper.

I love how it turned out … what do you think?
