You're BERRY Sweet!

Hi everyone! Today is my day to share over at My Craft Spot blog. I wanted to make a summery card and nothing says summer more than a big bowl of tasty strawberries. :)

I cut the strawberries and bowl from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge at 3.59". I layered the bowl of berries with the 4" Doily Metal Die. I tied a cherry red traditional bakers twine bow around my bowl.
You're BERRY Sweet is from the Tasty Treats stamp set. I created the tag using the Tiny Doilies Metal Dies. I use the Tiny Doilies metal dies whenever possible. I love the fact that I always get a clean cut every time.
Now, the strawberries only come with a leaf/steam cut, so I added some blossoms using the Small Alphabet metal dies. Did you know the Small Alphabet metal dies have shapes as well? The flower shape is great for adding that something extra--like a pop of color or extra layer for dimension. Love!

I didn't have time to wait for glossy accents to dry, so I embossed the strawberries and bowl with clear embossing powder and heat, and it gave it some really cool texture and shine--with NO drying time.

I hope you all enjoyed today's card and you feel inspired to create. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Happy Birthday Card And A Giveaway For One Of You

I wanted to share a quick little birthday card I made. This week my nephew, Evan, turned five. My sister had an awesome pirate party for him. Lot's of fun!!
I used the Tiny Doilies metal dies for my tag. *Hip Hip Hooray It's Your Birthday* is from the Stampin' Around Spring stamp set by My Craft Spot. The *5* is from the Chunky Alphabet stamp set. The birthday dog is from the Birthday Bash cartridge. I stamped his face using Peachy Keen stamps.
I added some maraschino twine. Love. I used the happy Birthday embossing folder--it really added a lot. I always seem to forget about dry embossing, but love the look.
*Happy Birthday* is from the Birthday Wishes stamp set.
I'd like to giveaway a Birthday Wishes Stamp Set
And a Spring Showers cartridge
Cricut® April Showers Seasonal Cartridge
Just leave a comment on this post and I will draw a winner
