18th Birthday Card

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I have a card/tag to share:) Today is my youngest brother's 18th B-day, and I made him a card/tag to go along with his gift. The reason I called it a card/tag is because the tag is pretty big that it serves as a card:)lol.

Isn't it cute!?!!! :)lol. It came out just how I envisioned, and it came together so quick, yay!

The cute robot and the stars are from Peachy Keens Stamp Club PKSC-14 February 2013 stamp set. The adorable face is from PK-145 Piles of 3/4 Smiles. The happy birthday sentiment came from PK-106 With a Cherry on Top. The sentiment originally comes with both words together, but I stamped and cut the sentiment in half.

I used the 4 x 6 Journal Die from My Creative Time's Stitched 4 x 6 Journal Die set, to make my tag. Since its a pretty big tag I decided to use it as a card as well:) I stamped the sentiment "Birthday wishes for you" on the back of the tag and plan on writing a little something for my brother like I would on a card. The Birthday wishes sentiment is from the Its all about you stamp set from My Creative Time. The brother sentiment came from the "Here's look-in at you" also from My Creative Time.

The paper is from My Mind's Eye "Home" stack. I used my Spectrum Nior markers to color the robot. Colors BG3  and BG5. The sequence and twine are from my stash:) I used a black marker pen for the stitching and a green gel pen for the green accent on the robot.

Teacher X-mas Card

Hello Crafty friends! Hope everyone is having a great day:)
I have a card to share with you today. I made this cutie to fit a few challenges. Hope you like it:)lol.

What do you guys think? When I first saw that adorable penguin I pictured him with some nerdie glasses lol. So I used Emma's "Here's Lookin At You" stamp set for the glasses and colored them red. I fussy cut them and used Peachy Keen "PK-482 Winter Wonderland Face Assortment.

The sentiment "Merry Christmas" and the penguin are from Peachy Keens July 2013 Stamp of the month club set. 
I also used some of Emma's dies on my card. I used the "Stitched Doily Die." Tag Dies" and one that I dont remember the name of right now, and I dont have the set in front of me sorry! I stamped the sentiment "Teacher" on this die, the sentiment came from Emma's My Teacher Rocks stamp set.
I ran my tag die through a Cuttle bug folder that I inked up, before running through the Cuttle bug to give some extra flare to my tag. 

Here's a close up of the adorable penguin! I know that I will be using this stamp again lol. I colored the hat, scarf, glasses and apple with my Spectrum Nior markers. Which reminds me the apple is from Peachy Keens Club of the month stamp set. And I do apologize again, I dont have the name of the stamp set,  I think it was in Augusts 2012 stamp set. 
I added some ribbon, sequins and twin and my card was complete.
