Thinking of You

I've been wanting to make a card using the Mason Jar stamp in a different way, so I decided to use the grass and dragonfly from God's Creation set from Two Paper Divas.  I just love this set as there are so many cards that could be made from it.  Especially, thinking of you or get well cards.  So beautiful!  
I colored the dragonfly with copics and added a couple of pearls that I colored brown.  Around the jar top, I used some cream twine and made a bow as well.  I just love polka dots, so I used that for the background.  Along the bottom of this card I used a little scallop trim in kraft paper and added two rows of lace above that.  To finish it off, I added three little flowers made from printed paper with some white buttons down the left side and the Thinking of You stamp from Two Paper Divas Banner #1.

I sure hope you are having a great week and that you take a little time to be creative!  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards!

Make it a great day!

Ready for Fall

Of all the seasons, Fall would probably be my favorite.  I love the color of the trees, the walks with my hubby and the dogs, the decorations, wearing leggings with boots and the taste of a cup of hot cocoa.  In keeping with the fall theme, I wanted to share I card I made using the Mason Jar stamp, the Fall is in the Air stamp set and also the Everyday Sentiment set.  The stamps are all from Two Paper Divas, who just totally updated their website.  It's amazing!  So proud to be part of such a wonderful design team!
I used a dark brown printed paper for the background of my card.  I then layered an acorn patterned paper and a rust colored paper on top of that.  I used a scallop die in kraft paper to add a little extra to the side of the card.  Who says cards have to be square???  I just love the Mason Jar stamp and decided to fill it with acorns.  I stamped the acorn stamp from the Fall is in the Air set in both rust and brown papers.  I fuzzy cut each acorn and placed them in the mason jar.  I used pop dots on a couple for some dimension.  On the lid of the jar I added some twine and a little tag that I stamped "For You" (this is from the Everyday Sentiment set).  A few black buttons with twine on the right side, a bow with a twine bow and a leaf charm, some pearls and finally the Fall is in the Air stamp from Two Paper Divas.  All of their stamps can be purchased Here.  Be sure to check out their new site.
As always, thanks for visiting Kirby's Kards.

Make it a great day!

Sweet Treats

Well, I guess summer is over...the kids were headed back to school today.  Time is flying by.  I'm trying to stay ahead of the game and get some Halloween/Autumn cards made.  Check out the latest stamp from the Cupcake Celebration stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  It has mini candycorn on the frosting, soooo cute!  Who wouldn't like to receive a cupcake like that??!!
I used some wild patterned papers on this card, probably too wild!  But it is for Halloween, so I figured I was okay!  I trimmed two of the corners in orange paper and a few pearls.  I used some black seam binding for the bow and topped it with an orange button and twine.  For the bingo card, I used the Halloween set from Two Paper Divas as well.  You can purchase this set of nine bingo cards with different Halloween words at the top.  It's so easy, you just print them out once purchased and you use them over and over.  So cool!  
I decided to pop the bingo card with some orange scalloped paper behind it.  For the cute cupcake, I colored the candies with copic markers and just had to add some bling with the orange glitter on the cupcake wrapper!  I hope you have enjoyed this fun Halloween card and appreciate you stopping by Kirby's Kards today!

Make it a great day!

Sprinkled with Love

Wait until you see all the new stamps from Two Paper Divas!!!  They are super cute, you are going to LOVE them!  I do!!!  I used the latest cupcake set for my card (there are actually five different cupcakes in this set, so the possibilities are endless).  Check out this card I made using a circle doily die.
I started with two doily die cuts and added a patterned paper to the front using a circle die.  I then added a little banner out of patterned green paper with a few pearls and two cream twine bows.  I got to borrow copic markers from my friend, Linda, to color the sprinkles and the cupcake wrapper.  This was my first attempt using copics, so here ya go!  Thanks Linda!  
I just love the saying that is with the cupcake stamp set "Sprinkled with Love."  I put a few pearls on the sentiment as well.  I did pop the banner, cupcake and sentiment on the card.  I find myself always making cards the same shape, so I decided to change it up and make a circle card.  Thanks for taking a minute out of your busy schedule to check out Kirby's Kards.  I appreciate it!  And make sure you check out Two Paper Divas...their stamps are simply amazing!

Make it a great day!
