I love a little Pinterest!  Okay, make that a LOT of Pinterest!
 I must have thousands of ideas pinned for inspiration and I am
happy to say, I really do try quite a few of them!

Here's a card I made with a little Pinspiration using a fun and easy technique called Bokeh. You know, the background effect in photography?  I combined the ideas from a couple cards, and this is the result!

 I used my sponge daubers and four colors of ink to make the colorful Bokeh style background.  I simply tapped dots all over the card with the daubers. Added a sentiment and embellished with some Glitter Paper circles, Gold Sequins, and Clear Sparkles
Ta Da!
Easy, fast, and fun!

 Other Supplies Used:
White Daisy Cards/Envelopes, Happy Couple Stamp Set
Stamp Pads: Sweet Leaf, Juniper, Lagoon, Black,(Sky- retired)

Pretty, Pretty Princess!

I recently helped my daughter make a special card for her niece's 1st Birthday.  The party theme was Pink and the little girl's daddy calls her Princess, so we knew we wanted to make a pink card with a sparkly crown.  We headed straight to all my awesome Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridges to find the perfect card shape. 
 We found a sweet pocket card with crown and a pull out tag
What fun it was to create with the pink and silver glitter papers!

Here is the Artiste Cricut Collection booklet page with the 3 images
we used and the sizes we cut them.
Products used:
Retired Products: Stamp set: You Are My Happy, Watermelon B&T paper, Bubble Gum ribbon
