Here is a card I made for my niece.  She is going to be having her first baby very soon.

Giraffe is cut at 4 1/2 ", elephant is cut at 3", duck is cut at 1 5/8", blocks are cut at 1" and the baby pins are all cut at 1 1/2".
The teddy bear is from the Christmas Noel Cartridge it is cut at 2 1/2".

I chalked around the edges with a creamy brown and added 3D pop dots to the animals and blocks to give dimension.  Each animal is cut 2 times the first layer is glued to the mat and the second layer is popped up.
The giraffe i ran through my cuttlebug, swiss dots folder and the eyes and mouths are from Peachy Keen stamps.

Dragonfly Card

Here is a card I made using my Gypsy.
I used the card from Wild Card page 34 cut at 4.39(h).
The frame around the card is the card liner from page 34 cut at the same size as the card but I used a Martha Stewart doily lace punch on the edge and just cut a green strip of paper as a backing.
The dragonflies are from Gypsy Wanderings.  They are cut out at 1.61(h) and .91(h) also cut the blackout feature in green.  I don't think you can see it very well in the picture but the green paper is a pearlscent paper.
The scroll is cut from Home Decor at 3.44(w) by .95(h).
The girl is from A Child's Year page 41 cut at 2.58(h) this also has a green shadow.
Added some ribbon and little jewels.  The dragonflies have Icicle Stickles on them and the girl is covered with 3D Crystal Lacquer so she really pops out of the card.
The dragonflies and girl are popped out with dimensionals.

Cupcake Birthday

Hi everyone, I have been very busy making cards lately.  We have 4 birthdays, 1 anniversary and 1 new baby all coming up within the next month.  I try to keep a month ahead on my cards so I'm not rushing at the last minute to make something.  Ha Ha that doesn't always happen.  Well here we go here is one more of the birthday cards.  Hope you like it.

I embossed the cupcake using the swirls folder and then added some clear glitter glue to the swirls.  On the cupcake wrapper I added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to make it pop out more.  The cherry on top of the cupcake I added some red glitter glue.  I also chalked the edges of the card with a creamy brown chalk and added a blue ribbon to match.

Resting Bird

I have had this Wild Card Cartridge for awhile now and never realized how many wonderful cards are in this cartridge.  I decided to print out a 2" card and envelope for each card and glued them to a piece of poster board and hung them on my wall.  After I did this, oh my goodness, I did not realize what I had been missing out on.  The ideas started pouring in my head like crazy.  I hope you enjoy this card.
Here is the inside of the card

There is a blue mat behind the stamp I chalked with blue chalk and popped up with pop dots.
