My First Cascade Card

This is my very first Cascade card ever.  I have looked at so many online and I have always thought that they looked like so much work.  But, then my wonderful friend sent me a beautiful Cascade Thank You card and I decided I needed to try and make one.  So, here is my first try at this card type.  As always I made a practice card first, but didn't decorate it.  I must say the longest part of making this card was deciding on the colours and how to decorate it.  I am so pleased that I gave this card a try.

Supplies: Paper: Bella Blvd (Birthday Girl); Circut: Storybook & Celebrations; Stamp: CC Designs (Birthday Gretel); Ribbon: Celebrate It (Sheer Creations); Framelits: SU (Labels Collection); Stickles: Orange, Yellow, Pink & Diamond; Misc: Scor-Pal & Tulle

3 Step Anniversary Card

I started this card a couple weeks ago to give to my parents for their anniversary, however I never got it done.  And for some strange reason, I didn't seem to feel the urgency to finish it.  I guess they won't be receiving it now...whoops.  Maybe they'll get this one next year.

 Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Bo Bunny (Crush Collection); Stamp: Studio G & Stampendous (Flourish Anniversary) & CC Designs (Spring Couple); Ink: TH (Black Soot & Festive Berries); Stickles: Gunmetal & Cotton Candy; Embossing Folder: Sizzix Hearts #2 Misc: Scor-Pal

3 Step Card and Birthday Celebration

The challenge this month over at ScorPalPals is to create a 3 Step Card.  So, far I've seen two versions of this card and after making this card I've tried both versions.  I think the card is just another way to be extra special.  I found both card ways of making the card a bit time consuming, but once you figure it out the first time it should go pretty fast the next time.  The directions for this card can be found here.  I also wanted to participate in the Color Me Creative's 3 Birthday Party and the theme was Celebrate.  

I made this card for the following Challenges:
ScorPalPals - #1305 3 Step Card Challenge
Color Me Creative - Challenge #67 Celebrations - Bday13

Supplies: Paper: SU (Melon Mambo) & Recollections (All Girl); Cricut: Alphalicious: Embossing Folder: PC (Swiss Dots); Stamps: SU (Feeling Sentimental), Studio G, Cornish Heritage Farms (Thomas Kinkade Birthday), Stamping Bella (Uptown Girl Ava Loves to Celebrate); Nestabilities: Lacey Ovales; Stickles: Cotton Candy & Diamond; Punch: SU (1 3/8" Circle, Scallop Circle, Scallop Trim, Decorative Label); Misc: Rhinestones, Scor-Pal & Scor-Tape
