An American Classic

My husband recently bought a Harley Davidson (after 5 years of me encouraging him) and he is over the moon.  A friend of his picked up some parts for him and also gave him a Guardian Bell (a tradition among bikers to keep the "highway gremlins" away from your bike).  I made the following card for my hubs to send as a thank you.

Base is SU! Only Orange cut at 8.5 x 5.5 folded
Layer 1 SU! Basic Black cut at 5.25 x 4
Layer 2 Walmart Metalic Silver cut at 5 x 3.75 and embossed with the Cuttlebug Diamond Plate Folder
Harley Davidson Logo printed at 3.5 inches on white cardstock and pop dotted for dimension

Miso Grateful!

Okay - I just got the new "Create a Critter" Cartridge and I am pretty sure it is my favorite cartridge to date.  It has the cutest animals on it and the accessories are to die for!  When I saw the "noodles" cut I knew exactly what I wanted to make first!  This card makes me giggle! Here's the front:

And here's the inside:

Funny, Right?

Been Busy Scrappin'!

Although I haven't posted too much lately, I have been busy!  Here are a few layouts I have completed.  The first two were made using Cosmo Cricket Carden Variety 6x6 pad and the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety Ready, Set, Chip Stickers from Lil' Lamb's Boutique.

The last layout was made using Websters Pages, Lullibuy Lane Line also from Lil' Lamb's Boutique. 

I made the flowers on this layout.  I cut flowers shapes (3 at 1.5 inches and 2 at 1 inch for each flower) from the bazzill bling cardstock. After punching a hole in the center of each flower, I sprayed each one with Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist until completely saturated and crumpled them up, tightly. I un-crumpled and layered five flowers (2 smaller on top) and secured with a brad. Then I foofed them till I liked the way they looked. I used a heat gun to "set" each flower and attached a Prima Grape leaf that I had misted with glimmer mist. Although they sound like a lot of work they are really super simply and add so much dimension to your page. Go ahead and give them a try.

My Pink Stamper Challenge

Robyn at My Pink Stamper challenged us to make something using the colors pink, green and black.  I made a layout using the Paisley cartridge and had extra cut cuts of these super cute sneakers, so I figured I'd make a card.  They were perfect to go with the Papertrey ink sentiment.

Plantin School Book circle cut at 4inches
