Card Me Thursday - 50th

Hi folks,

thought I would let you in on the three things I am loving in my craftroom right now...
1. My stampamajig... how did I ever line up stamps before now. No really... for me stamping was always a bit of hit and miss, with the invention of unmounted stamps it was really more miss then hit...hehehe. Not anymore thanks to this very ingenious tool that will line up your stamp placement perfectly.
2. My Xyron... I often feel like I have man hands when trying to apply glue to small or fiddly little embellishments. Not anymore thanks to my 1.5' xyron, you put the fiddly embelly in the top and pull the thing at the bottom and ta da... a sticky embellishment ready to put on your project.
3. My Cameo *mega love*... cut any design at the size you need! Oh and the print and cut feature...AWESOME! I couldn't have made this card without it...

I took a white card and ran it through my big shot with the M-Bossabilities 'Garden Delight' embossing folder. Using the Silhouette software and print and cut feature, I printed three cherry blossom branches (two slightly small than the other) and the coloured no.50 on my Epson printer. I then cut both of those and the happy birthday circle and a slightly larger no.50 with the Cameo.
I ran the coloured no.50 through my xyron and stuck this to the larger no.50. Using foam squares I then stuck the no.50 to the circle and the circle to the front of the card. The cherry blossoms have foam squares under the buds at one end and just glue at the branch end.

I used the stampamajig and a Kaszazz stamp for the sentiment and attached a second small cherry blossom branch to the top of the inside.  Again I ran the branch through the xyron, peel and stick = done.
A very simple but sweet card I made for my Sister-in-Laws 50th!

Have a great day!


  1. Looks great!
    I love my Xyron & my cricut machine (I have software that does similar to yours).
    Also love the sentiment stamp inside ;o)

  2. Thanks Julie, I think my crafting has been waiting for all these awesome toys...LOL!
