Well over at My Craft Spot with Kimberly this week the challenge is Wish Big! (anything birthday). I love making birthday cards it always seems like I need one. Well here is my card:
To start off my card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/2. The pink layer is cut 4 1/16 x 4 5/16 and the kraft is cut 3 3/8 x 3 5/8. I cut the image from the cricut cart Love you a Latte. I cut it at 3.5 inches and all pieces were cut in white. I do this sometimes it really makes cutting fast. Then I usually use my copics. This was a great image for this process (I don't recommend doing this for large pieces) Here are the colors I used. (E35, RV13, RV25, R46, G24, & E29) I used glossy accents on the top layer for the caramel sauce. My sentiment is from My Craft Spot Birthday Wishes. The banner is from MCT.
I have another video in my series! I am getting out my old embossing folders and dies, some are as old as 5 years and some never used. For this series I am incorporating them with some of my new stuff. I also show in this video a little tip to make some folders more useful.
Today I am entering the new challenge over at My Creative Time.
1 bow, 2 pattern papers, and 3 buttons
This challenge was lots of fun. After seeing all the design team projects I got spring fever. It is only about 20 degrees here in Ohio but spring is just around the corner, I hope.

Today I posted another video in my series of New Vision Embossing.(where I take my old dies and embossing folders and use them and incorporate the new stuff). In this video I inked an embosslit Flower Burst from Sizzix, then I die cut hearts. I also used some paint chips to cut the dies. It has been lots of fun playing with my stuff. I have more videos coming on some other techniques I used.
The die that I used was a die that I received when I bought my first cuttle bug some years ago.
I have started a new series of videos on you tube. New Vision Embossing. I am taking some of my old embossing folders and dies(some of which I have not used and had for 5 years or more) and using them and mixing them with my new stuff. It has been a lot of fun planning them. I love doing videos and I had taken a break from them for a while. I am working on a few other series also. Well here is my video and a few pictures of my project.
