Magical Monday: "Let's Get Together"

It's time for another Challenge over at There's Magic In The Air with Paper Cupcakes.

This week's challenge is: Let's Get Together.

The challenge is to make an invitation to any type of party or get together.  I used Paper Cupcakes image "Ronan & Izzy - Summer Fun" to make a Pool Party invitation.

Lucky Number 13 (Cigar Box)

Wow...that's a lotta orange!  Oh well.  A friend is getting married next month, and her colors are orange and yellow.  A group of us got together and helped her make her invitations, so I based this box after her invitation and color scheme.   How cool is it that I found a cigar box with orange borders!

To add some more yellow, I made the yellow paper flower using the Sizzix Flower, Daisies #2.

And here are the inspiration/invitations:

Magical Monday - "One for the boys"

It's time for another Challenge over at There's Magic In The Air with Paper Cupcakes.  So hop on over and grab your FREE Mustache Cupcake image and use it on any type of card/project as long as it's male related.

Here's my inside. I made it on my computer, so it could be Happy Birthday or Cheer Up or anything!  I chose Happy Father's Day so there could be no mistaking the male-related theme of the Challenge.

Here are a couple more variations of the same image:

Technique Thursday

I am very excited to share this card because I am really pleased with the way it turned out!

Pictured left is the BEFORE and AFTER!  

I cut the tops and bottoms off several empty Diet Sunkist soda cans, ran them through the Big Kick using the Stampin' Up! Daisies Die #2 (retired) and made this cool 3-D flower!   After adhering the flower to the card base, I bent some of the petals up to give it that 3-D look.

I gotta do some more of these!

Cigar Box #12

Yep....made another one.

This one uses the Recollections Portobello Road Stack. The only extra bling I used is the little birdie blingie thingie on the inside. It just doesn't need anything my opinion. The paper on the front and inside has glittery parts on it already.  All that's left to do is sign the bottom.

Anyway, it's a gift for a friend :)
