I created the lollipop by cutting out different circles with my cricut and gluing them to a larger circle. I bought a set of lollipop sticks from Michaels. The sticks were a bit of a pain to stick to the card, but I got them to work with glue dots. I also used the Denami Thoughtful Greetings Stamp Set for the Happy Birthday.

I created these cards with the Denami Under the Sea Petit Four Stamp set and the Sea Friends Petit Four Stamp Set. To Stamp the seaweed, I used two different colors of green in. I also used Crystal Lacquer on the bubbles and gold stickles in the treasure box. I added the ribbon to most of the cards but I eventually ran out and didn't have a color that I liked to use. My favorite are the ones with the blue background.

I made these cards with the Denami Chickie Cupcake stamp. I also used the Martha Stewart Scallop dot punch for the border. I tend to give many people the same card, so I try to make it in different colors. I used stickles on the cupcakes and red glitter on the cherries. I think my favorite are the bottom two.

I love making Christmas cards. I think Christmas stamps are some of the cutest stamps. Here are some more.
These stamps are from Stamps By Judith. The background is made from her sticks and stubbies.
This card is made from a Stampin Up set. I am not sure of the name of the set. Th background is made from a star stamp and versamark.
This is also a stampin up set.

Here are some more Denami Christmas cards I made a couple of years ago. This was back when I made each person a different card. It got to be too much so I now just make two or three different designs in multiples. So much easier.

This is another set of cards that I made for the Design Team at my local scrapbook store. I made these from the Authentique Lively line. For all 4 of these cards I used Cricuts Sweet Treats cartridge.

I absolutly love the Denami Under the Sea and Sea Friends Petit four stamp sets. I love using them. For this card I used the petit fours for the background. I then colored the sea friends and added glitter to the black lines created by the stamp. I just left the bubbles and the sea weed black. I choose not to do any embellishments to those, but I did think about adding Diamond Glaze or Crystal Lacquer to the bubbles. The whale stamp also came from Denami. I used a marvy scallop square punch for the background.
Here are some birthday cards that I made with the Denami surfboard stamp. Some of them I put glitter and crystal lacquer on them.
This one has a square cut out. Inside the cut out I put the Denami surfer chick and Denami Hula chick. I stamped the surfboards on white, colored them and cut them out.

I joined the design team at my local scrapbook store and these were some of the Halloween cards I made with the Authentique Enchanted line.
On this card I made the castle with the Disney Princess Dreams Come True Cricut Cartridge. I did the background by using the masking technique with various ink colors. I didn't have a bayer so I used a cotton ball. That seemed to work just fine. The trees I drew by hand and the bats came from Cricut's Cupcake Wrapper cartridge.
For this card, I drew the spider web by hand and covered it with black glitter. The spider I made with the Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge out of circles and the legs are question marks. I then embossed it with Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder and then put Star Dust stickles in the lines. The "Happy Halloween" is a sticker from the Enchanted line.
I made the pumpkins on this card with the Basic Shapes cricut cartridge also. Just circles, ovals and squares. I inked the edges of the pumpkins to give them some depth. The "Happy Halloween" is a stamp from Denami.
The banner on this card was made from stickers from the Enchanted line. I added orange flowers with a black brad.

If you haven't figured it out yet, I am a big fan of Denami. This card I made using their Outer Space petit four stamp set, Space Chickie and their rocket for the background. I used a marvy scallop punch for the green background and a smaller white scallop punch for the white background. I then took my hand hole punch and made the white scallop look a little like lace. I also cut out a yellow scallop the same size as the white and glued it underneath so the yellow would show up through the holes I punched. I used the Denami Whimsical oval border and stamped it on the white scallop. From the petit four space set, I stamped a planet, a shooting star and the saying "You're a Blast" in the circle. I colored the inside of the border and everything else on the card with my Stampin Up Watercolor pencils and then went over them with blender pen. I added Crystal Lacquer to the planet and the star inside the scallop. I love how this card turned out. I did a similar one to this using the pirate chickie and the nautical stamp set.

I love using my cricut machine. A couple of months ago I got the Sweet Treats cricut cartridge, but I didn't use it till recently. I made these cupcake cards for a couple people for their birthday. I glittered the cherries and I used my cuttlebug embosser for some of the backgrounds.
