Choo Choo!

I just found a bunch of projects that never made it to my blog , so there should be lots of new content in the coming weeks!

Anyway, last year, my great nephews were into into trains.  (You may remember the card I made for Thomas.) For Paul's card, I decided to put my Cricut to work again.  Here's the card:

 I used foam dimensionals to pop the train off the track.  Glossy accents added texture to the wheels.  And, the cloud proved to be the perfect place to stamp the sentiment.  (That seems to be my thing.  LOL!)  Here's a closer look.
 For the gift bag, I repurposed a navy American Eagle shopping bag by adding a cardstock layer that was stamped with all different emergency vehicles.  I added a border that was punched from a scrap of paper and some stickers to personalize it.  Here's the gift bag:
Both nephews turned three this year and Disney Cars is their thing. Thanks to Google, I found the perfect stamp and will share those cards soon.

Celebrate the 4th!

Just a quick card to share today. Here it is:

 I used the star from a Technique Tuesdays set to make my own patterned paper and matted it on Night of Navy card stock.  For the card base, I stamped my sentiment to the right and adhered a strip of stars (made with a border punch to the left. I tied some twine around the strip of stars and adhered it using foam adhesives.

Wishing all of my American friend a happy and safe July 4th!
