Hello, Gorgeous


Hello! I'm popping in to share another card I created using more goodies from the Butterfly Reflections Ink store! :) To create my card, I started by stamping the hello greeting from AveryElle's Peonies set repeatedly in light gray ink onto a piece of white CS.  I then die cut a window shape from a piece of mint CS, then adhered it to the stamped background with pop dots before attaching it to a medium gray card base.
 

I then stamped the flower, leaf and vase images onto watercolor paper using Stazon gray ink, then colored them in with Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Peacock Feathers and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks.  While the images were drying, I stamped the green in Versafine ink onto light gray CS.  Once the images were dry, I cut them out then adhered them inside the mint window.
 

To finish up, I covered the flowers with a generous portion of Clear Winks of Stella glitter, adhered the sentiment with pop dots, then embellished with Jubilee silver enamel dots.

Have a great one!

Enjoy Today


Hello! I'm popping in to share a shaker card I created using the Pineapples Aplenty and a Pina Colada Quick Card Panel from Reverse Confetti.

To create my card, I started by die cutting a pineapple shape into the Quick Card Panel using the Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts.  I then placed the QCP on a white card base and lightly marked the top and bottom of the pineapple cutout to use as a guide.  Next, I stamped one of the pineapple images from Pineapples Aplenty inside the pencil lines.



I then adhered a piece of acetate to the backside of the QCP before covering the card with foam.  I then filled the open are with assorted sprinkles before adhering the QCP to the card base.  To finish up, I embellished with some green enamel dots.





Have a great one!

Sending Big Hugs


Hello! If you know me, you know I am a HUGE fan of heat embossing... My project today features embossing in both gold and white, and a neutral color palette with a pop of pink.

To create my project, I started by stamping a large flower image in versamark ink onto a Whiskers Graphics Kraft White Horizontal Stripe Middy Bitty Bag, then heat embossing with white powder.  I then trimmed a 1/2" from the bottom of a White Large Colored Tag, then trimming a piece of vellum to match.


I then stamped the sentiment onto the vellum tag with versamark ink before heat embossing with gold powder.  The tags were then adhered to the kraft bag using Rose Gold Metallic Divine Twine.  To finish up, I embellished with pink enamel dots.

Have a great one!

Sprinkled With Love


Hello! I am so excited to be guest designing for Waltzingmouse Stamps for the next month!! :) I fell in love with this doughnut set as soon as I saw it, so many fun icing combinations are possible... Yum!

To create my card today, I went back to my CAS roots! I started by stamping three chocolate cake doughnuts (hehe) from the Dinky Doughnuts set, then stamping some light pink heart sprinkles.  I then cut out the doughnuts and centers before adhering them to a kraft card base with pop dots.


One of the sentiments from We Go Together was then stamped in brown ink onto a piece of light pink CS.  The ends were trimmed in a banner shape, then the sentiment strip was adhered to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I wrapped some Cotton Candy Divine Twine around the base of the card front and tied it off with a bow before embellishing with gold enamel dots.

Have a great one!

Life is Short... Eat Dessert First


Hello! I'm so happy it's Friday and the weekend is finally here... It's also the LAST day of school for kiddos in our county, and I know for a fact that mine is ready for SUMMER. :)

To create my card today, I used image from the new Slurp set from the Alley Way Stamps, and created my own patterned background by repeat stamping the adorable donut image in various inks.  Once that was done, I wrapped the base of the stamped layer with pink/white twine, then adhered the image to a mini card base (3.5 x 5").


I then die cut a heart from silver glitter, and adhered it to the card base.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Slurp in black ink onto a piece of mint CS, trimmed the ends into a banner shape, then adhered it to the card base with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with purple enamel dots.


Have a great one!

Nothing Can Dim the Light...


Hello! I'm popping in to share a little CAS mini-card (3.5 x 5) I created using Reverse Confetti goodies... Such a beautiful quote!

To create my card, I started by cutting a piece of gray card stock to create my card base.  I then stamped a piece of white CS with one of the paint images from Color Me Happy using a modified rainbow of colors.  



I then stamped the sentiment from Shine From Within in black versafine ink.  The white CS layer was then adhered to the gray card base with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with silver enamel dots.  Super fast and easy, even for me, the world's slowest stamper! Lol. :)




Have a great one!

June SFYTT - Hello


Hello! I created this card using this month's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) from Reverse Confetti, some of my favorite dies (chevrons and word sentiment), as well as the Pineapples Aplenty stamp set. 

To create this card, I started by stamping the pineapple pieces from Pineapples Aplenty in lime and teal, then die cutting them with their coordinating dies.  I then adhered the top and bottom of the pineapple together.  Next, I die cut the largest circle from the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts, and attached the die cut pineapple with pop dots.  I then used the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts to die cut several chevron strips in mint, gray and lime.




I then layered a piece of black and white striped paper onto a piece of white CS, then adhered it to a lime card base with pop dots.  The hello was then die cut using the Hello Confetti Cuts on a piece of silver glitter CS.  Next, I adhered the chevrons to the card base before attaching the white circle die cut.  To finish up, I adhered the hello die cut to the card front, then embellished with teal enamel dots.
