Make a Wish! How amazing is this set? I love that it is ALL OCCASSION.

Can you believe how awesome Gina K is for doing this project? A woman, a mom, with her own stamp company, working hard, using what she has avaliable, to work to make a difference in so many lives.

When I was asked to be a part of this team, I was beyond excited. I was so moved by the fact that Gina was doing this to help an organization that is not only amazing but has directly affected my family! You truly have NO IDEA how amazing this organization is for families of these children facing life threatening illnesses, and I hope you never how to have a wish granted, because that would mean someone you love, a child, has a serious life threatening condition.

You can read my daughter Alexa’s Make A Wish story HERE!

I have SO MANY samples with this set to share with you. I wanted to start with the shooting stars, as I think they are my favorite.

This is a close view

close up wish This was my very first thought upon first viewing the sketch. Wish upon a star. I stamped the shooting star image in silver ink. I then used some paper tape to mask off my area on my card, then baby wipes technique to make a shooting stream of color.

I added stickles to the open lined stars. I stamped the larger star on some DCWV Glitterstack paper, and cut out a star. I also used my cuttlebug star, and the same glitter paper in white for the larger star image.

Its a simple yet STRIKING card I feel.

Next up-Many Wishes

lots of wishes Well I love sparkle! So this star is PERFECT for my Martha Stewart glitter!

I first used my cuttlebug embossed star image on the bottom portion of this card. With my stamp-a-ma-jig (yes I use mine) I used my Glue Pad and stamped the shooting star, then added my MS glitter.

For the top portion-I used Soft Sky cardstock. I first stamped the larger Make A Wish sentiment. Using my stamp-a-ma-jig again, I made my bkgd paper stamping the smaller make a wish sentiment in white craft ink. Its a soft and very pretty look.

I felt simple was best. Tied it off with a soft sheer ribbon ribbon.

Arent they SO pretty! Its a set that is gender and age neutral. I think letting someone know what the set benefits is a gift in itself.

Birthday WISHES

very big birthday Big Birthday Wishes

I have had this DCWV patterned paper for quite some time now. When I saw this set I knew it was the perfect time to put it to use! With my daughter Amber turning 3 on August 13th how could I not use it.

Its perfectly girly-glittery, purple and fun.

This set is Make A Wish by Gina K. $7 from each set benefits the Make A Wish foundation.

I started with the card. Colored it to match the paper. Stickles were the perfect touch.

Now what kind of birthday card would this be without a super cute bag to match?

maw bday bag 

So here is my matching gift bag.

I basically took a white lunch bag, and covered it using my Xyron 900 for adhesive.

Yes I strategically and painstakingly cut the patterned paper on the panel so that the “happy birthday” would be visible at the bottom panel. THAT my friends is what you may call anal. “I” call it attention to the little details.  And yes, I also made sure my polka dots were perfectly placed around the tag!

I had this tag from Bare Elements. I had been dying to use it, and now was the time.

So I traced it out on my paper, and cut. Used my Xyron 900 to adhere to the tag. The acetate cut out was done using a stylus to trace, then a hobby blade. My super-awesome file kit by Basic Grey, allowed me to gently and perfectly file the edges of the tag! YEAH! I love that thing. Rubbed some versamagic ink along the edges.

Stamped my sentiment on the bottom portion of the tag.

close up bag a little closer lookey.

I stamped the cake on the acetate part of the tag with StazOn. I turned it over, and colored it with my Copic Markers. WOW! Do those beauties work like a dream!

I then tied some MS ribbon.

Now onto my STAR. Again my cuttlebug star die cut was responsible for this purty touch! I also used my favorite-Red Tag Alpha for #3. DCWV glitter stack in the purple for the star and #3.

I traced the star to cut a solid white panel.

Attached it and voila. All it needed was ONE more sentiment on the side, then-done!

WISH you Well!

well of joy

I love the Wishing Well! How many occassions this can be for! This set is from Gina K, and $7 from each set benefit the Make A Wish foundation.

I have a few more ideas in my head for this, but only had so much time to execute them!

I am in love with the first card. I love the softness it has. I also love my stone walkway! LOL!

I colored both these images with Copic Markers.
