Three recycled cards :D

I am almost at the point of packing up all my craft stuff, so I am trying finish up all my crafty projects!!  It seems like I keep thinking up things that I should create, so my list is getting longer and longer!!!  We have a lot of summer birthdays in our family so I am pre-making all of the birthday cards for them.  I have even been getting some requests for what people would like!!!  LOL
My mind has been racing lately trying to organize everything and get ready for our move so for the last couple of cards that I created I have just recycled some ideas of older cards that I have already created. This just helps the creating processes along. There is very little to decide on so all I have to do is  create!!! Lol

The first card is very simple, it is an A2  sized card and the sentiment has been stamped from a Recollections stamp from their Fun Borders stamp set. I just used a water pen and some distress ink to paint in the bumblebee.
The flowers are from Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge and I inked around the edges to give them some depth. To finish it off I put a flat backed pearl in the centers of the flowers.

The second card is a pretty card for a good friends wedding. I used the layout of my mom’s get well soon card. I just loved how that card turned so I thought that it would be perfect for the happy couple!!
This card is a 4x4 square card.  The circle scallop is cut from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge, and the champagne glasses are from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. The flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment is from an  Impression Obsession stamp set.

 Finally the third card is a birthday card for my niece who is turning 8! She has been very excited about her birthday this year and has been counting down the days for about a month. Her birthday is not until the end of July so she still has a while still to go!  I created this card for my cousin’s daughter back in March and I shared it on my YouTube channel. I just loved how it turned out so I thought that I would make it again.
The cute little cupcake is from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. I used the Happy Birthday Cuttebug embossing to create the background.  The sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper’s Birthday Crazy stamp set. A little twine a button, some glitter on the flames and the cheecks of the cupcake helped finish off this card!!!

I decided to recycle these card ideas because the recipients of my cards did not see the cards the last time around. So unless they see their version of them here or on my YouTube channel it will be a surprise for them!! J

For all the Canadians have a Happy Canada Day
for the Americans have a Happy Fourth of July!!! 
Thanks for stopping by,
