Cruise Birthday card

This is my first LAB (Life's a Beach) card. Can't wait until it goes on DS - I guess I'm just a DS snob. This is for my father-in-law. He's a huge cruise fan!

365 days around the sun...

I know this card has been done a million times before, but I put the "Earth" spin on it - I usually see it with the sun on it. The world is cut with turquoise card stock and I used light green vinyl for the continents. The cut file is in the right hand column.

Check this out EARTHLINGS...

I had a great time making these alien cards for my son's friend.
He is having a UFO/Alien party. All of the cuts are made from glossy vinyl. The sparkly paper is Crayola Stardust Sticker paper I had around - perfect background I thought. The alien cut files are in the right hand column. Click on picture for a better view

Thanks A Latte Mugs-Cards

I just had to make a mug shaped card with "Thanks a Latte", now that I have been using vinyl to add words to the outside of my cards. I went a little overboard making sooooo many of them. The card cut file is in the right hand column. I used George for the design and the "steam" shape comes from the coffee cup in beyond Birthdays.

New Cards made with Vinyl

I finally managed to make cards with vinyl. It's a great use for my vinyl scraps. Since I like to cut the shapes with lots of details and delicate cuts, I have to use the transfer tape. The problem is that the tape was sticking to my cardstock and ruining the cards. BUT, I finally found a great transfer tape from H&H Sign Supply (Clear Choice - Medium Tack, Clear Tape) and it does NOT stick to cardstock - VOILA! If you want to buy this transfer tape, click on the green text to the right of this post. If you like my cards, please comment at the bottom of this post...

I pre-printed the "With Thanks..." and used a vinyl dragonfly cut and small flower embellishment. The cut came from SVG Cuts Blog:

I pre-printed the "With Thanks..." and used a vinyl bird on branch cut and small flower embellishment. The bird cut file is in the right hand column.

I pre-printed the "Hope Your Birthday's..." and used the owl cut in black and outline cut in white vinyl. The owl and owl outline cut file is in the right hand column.

I cut the Aloha out of black vinyl and mounted it on light blue cardstock with black adhesive buttons in the corners. Cut file is in the right hand column.

Used glossy black vinyl and a cut from the Wedding Cartridge. I used the "hide" feature, so none of the accents cuts would show.

I pre-printed the "With thanks..." and used the bird house cut in brown vinyl. he birdhouse cut file is in the right hand column.
