Cinnamon stick mini ornaments

Saw these on Pinterest and this is my take on them. They are small and would be great on a mini tree or package tie.
One cinnamon stick
A small strip of ribbon
7" of twine
Punch of pine needles and a heart
Hot glue and made these rather quickly

3D birthday card

Made this quick card with a new die set. The circles cut and released very nicely!
They are a set from Spellbinders.
 I cut the name out with a single die from Quikutz.
The sentiment is from A Time for Memories.
To make the folded base card start with 8 1/2 x 5 1/2". Score at 1" 2" 3 1/4" 4 1/2" and 5".
Her birthday was Wed and I gave it to her yesterday at her party with a chapstick key ring, a flower gel pen, a domino necklace and some chocolate pretzels.

Craft fair candles

Made 4 of these for a craft fair
The candles are battery operated with a real wax feel and flickering flame. These plain candles came from The Dollar Tree

 This version I cut a 1.5" of music paper and hit glued to the candle. Then die cut the peace frame and sentiment.

This version I wrapped twine around the mid section of the candle and then hot glue 3 leaves and added rhinestones.

Birthday Card Disney Cinderella Carriage

I was so excited to buy this Disney Cinderella Carriage die off of fb a couple months ago as I had my daughter in mind.
She is a HUGE Disney fan and after several thoughts on what type of card I was going to make her - I settled on this 3D
Trying to get the layers to line up precisely was a little tricky. You see... when you lay the card flat the middle frame lays perfectly over the mat on the last section.
The Happy is hung only by the "h" on the frame panel and the Birthday is glued to the back mat.
This card took some time and lots of thought however I am please with the outcome.
Happy Birthday to my daughter! <3 p="">

Baby card

Using Elizabeth Design dies I created this card today for Annalese baby shower.
I had fun designing on the fly.
 I did cut everything. Can you see the little baby pajamas and paciphers hanging on a string?

3D Halloween Card Gate Fold card

I had to come up with a unique card for Joe. He loves Halloween so I spent hours thinking, creating and gluing various die pieces.
The gate actually bows out around the hand cut headstone pieces.
The tree is partially glued down so that it will pop out a little.
The front of the gate fold card has the spider web and spiders crawling down for more of the 3d effect.
I just bought this die set at Micheal's with my 60% off coupon - not bad for 5.50!!!
Here I am trying to hold down the gate folds so you can see the effect. Hope he enjoys!

Repurpose Fall Card

This card is a little rustic or vintage or repurposed.... (FYI the background card is not as pink as the camera picked it up)
I picked up 5 different fall colors paint chips at the Hardware store and ran them all through my big shot using Lawn Fawn leaves dies (love the cuts)
I ran vintage page of a book through a new background die from Tim Holtz / Sizzix to represent "wind"
Added some twine to the side and left this no sentiment note card to send to my daughter.

Birthday card Fall Theme

It's my Sister's Birthday today and since I cut 5 different paint chips the other die with the 5 leaves die this is the second of 3 cards I made with the various leaves.
Sizzix Birthday dies for the sentiment
Lawn Fawn leaves dies (some raised or glued to base)
SU background embossing folder

Thinking of you Fall card

Made this card for my son... it was long overdue.
The background layer is a metal embossing plate that I picked up on clearance at the Expo and this was the first time I used it. Pretty neat effect and I did add a little brown ink to it however it is hard to see.
Sizzix thing of you die and Lawn Fawn leaves cut from paint chips I had in my stash.
Some of the leaves I added foam to raise some of  them.
Nice quick card.
