MCT Made In Minutes ~ happy birthday

Happy Monday morning my crafty friends! 
 Today is another Made In Minutes over at My Creative Time.  I love this segment since it gets me to use the extra cuts they I might have otherwise thrown away. 

 Last month I had created a birthday layout that had lots of balloons.  Well I didn't use them all so after I was done with my layout I quickly created this card.  I think that's what this "made in minutes" is all about.  What a concept...create a card while you have all the pieces out...DUH!

I die cut the "happy" in glitter paper and foam then attached together.

MCT Inspire Me Wednesday ~ refuse to sink!

Good Morning!  It's another Inspire Me Wednesday over at My Creative Time.  The card I made for today is actually inspired by two things.  Colors and theme are from the picture below, the layout and gesso technique are from a class I took earlier this year.

First I stamped the white lines in the background using gesso onto watercolor paper.  Don't let the gesso dry on your stamps, clean immediately.  Once the paper was dry, I watercolored with distress ink.  I was really that simple to create this card!

MCT What A Treat Wednesday ~ thanks a latte!

Good morning, today is What A Treat Wednesday over at My Creative Time!
 I hope you've had a warm beverage of something to start your day...if not you can join me with my style of "joe"!  

I used the lollipop die to cute the pattern paper and a doily. 
 For the "latte"  I cut it about three times and attached to each other, then added wink of stella and glossy accents.

Do you know how hard it was not to eat this lollipop?  lol!
