Happy Birthday Wishes


Hello! I'm popping in to share a mini-card I created for the July Reverse Confetti color challenge... I just love these colors together, they scream HAPPY! :)


To create my mini-card, I started by cutting two tag shapes using the Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts.  I used the solid stripe from So Stripey to create a coral striped pattern on the front of one tag, then adhered the two tags together to create the card base.  Next, I used the Pretty Panels Chevron Confetti Cuts on a piece of gray CS, then adhered it to a piece of white CS.



I then stamped one of the label images from Label Me in aqua, then cut it out with the coordinating Label Me Confetti Cuts before stamping the sentiment in gray ink.  To assemble the tag, I adhered the chevron panel to the card base with pop dots, then layered a green CS strip on top.  The sentiment label was then adhered to the green CS with pop dots, and aqua enamel dots were added for some extra color.  To finish up, I adhered the aqua tag reinforcer with Tombo glue, then attached some gray twine.


 


 



Want to play along with us this month? All you need to do is create a card/project using the colors above (and Reverse Confetti stamps), and link it up HERE by Noon CST on July 29th! :)

Have a great one!

Hey, Sweetie!


Hello, I'm popping in to share a fun card I created by mixing and matching two different Reverse Confetti sets.  


To created my card, I started with a white card base, then stamped one of the frame shapes from Label Me in two different colored gray inks.  Next, I die cut a piece of aqua cs into a banner shape using one of the dies from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts.  I then stamped the sentiment from Let's Chill in versamark, then heat embossed with white powder.  To finish up, the banner was attached with pop dots, and I embellished the front with orange enamel dots.


 



Have a great one!


Winnie & Walter: Scenery - V for cheVron


Hello! It's the last day of previews before the Winnie & Walter release is available tomorrow on the 25th. Woot! :) Today, we're featuring cards/projects using the new Scenery: V for CheVron set.

To create my card, I started with a light pink card base, then stamped the largest solid V twice in versamark before heat embossing with white powder.  Next, I added a strip of coral ribbon between the two single V's.  I then die cut a small-ish gray circle and adhered it to the card front.


I then stamped the large you from The Big, the Bold and You in light gray ink, then fussy cut it out.  The word rock was stamped on yellow card stock with versamark ink, then heat embossed with white powder.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the card front and embellished with green enamel dots.

Winnie & Walter: The Big, the Bold and Seasons


Hello! One more day to go until the Winnie & Walter July stamp release... Yayayayay! :) For our cards/projects today, we're featuring images from the new The Big, the Bold and Seasons set.

For my project today, I decided to create a digital layout using some of the images from the The Big, the Bold and Seasons set, as well as It's a Wonderful Pennant.


To create my layout, I started by filing the background with a gray ikat leopard print, then dropping in the large photo of my daughter, which I had cut into a circle shape.  I layered it against a larger pink circle, then anchored it in the upper right hand corner.  Next, I used the squiggle tree from It's a Wonderful Pennant to create the sun's rays, then changed their color to yellow.  I then added the text summer from the The Big, the Bold and Seasons digital files, enlarged it and changed the color to pink.  

Two more photos were added of our daughter, then layered with yellow.  To finish up, I added three flowers, altered their colors, then fiddled with their arrangement.  So quick and easy, and just super fun! Digi layouts aren't really my thing (I never feel like I'm doing them correctly... lol), but this layout totally makes me smile.  And that's all that really matters, right?? :)

Winnie & Walter: Scenery - It’s a Wonderful Pennant


Hello! Only a few more days to go until the Winnie & Walter July stamp release... Woot! :) Today, we're featuring cards/projects from the new It's a Wonderful Pennant stamp set.  This set is awesome! I love the versatility of these images, from banners, to trees, to diamonds! :)

To create my card, I started with a piece of white CS, and repeat stamped one of the pennant images in the set to create these cool diamonds for my background in versamark.  I then heat embossed the images, and once they cooled, I covered them with a light watercolor wash. While the background was drying, I stamped the thanks from The Big, the Bold and You in a coral ink, then fussy cut it out.


Once the background was dry, I distressed the edges, then adhered some yellow ribbon and jute twine.  Next, I adhered the background to the aqua card front with pop dots.  The sentiment was then attached with pop dots, and the card was embellished with orange enamel dots.

Winnie & Walter: The Big, the Bold and Blessings


Hello! :) Today marks the first of the sneak peek days for Winnie & Walter's July release.  For our projects today, we're featuring the new The Big, the Bold and Blessings set, which is yet another awesome set along the same vein as the prior "The Big..." sets (with fabulous large font words, and coordinating smaller words).

For my card today, I started by stamping some of the flower images from The Big, the Bold and Extras, then heat embossing the flower outlines with white powder.  I trimmed them out, then adhered them to the card front with pop dots.  Next, I stamped the word grateful in light gray ink, then fussy cut it once it dried.


I then stamped one of the banners from The Big, the Bold and Extras in dark gray ink, and stamped the remainder of the sentiment before cutting it out.  Next, I adhered the banner to the card front, then attached the fussy cut grateful.  To finish up, I embellished with aqua blue enamel dots.

What Makes You Different...


Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created for the most recent Reverse Confetti release that I hadn't had a chance to post yet.  

To create my card, I started by cutting a bunch of "lemons" to use as my flower petals with the Fresh 'n Fruity Confetti Cuts dies.  I then stamped the polka dot orange from Fresh 'n Fruity in light aqua, and cut it out with the corresponding Confetti Cut.  Next, I adhered several of the lemon die cuts directly to the back of the aqua orange, then added some additional with pop dots.



I then stamped one of the sentiments from Fabulous Flamingo onto the blue card base in versamark before heat embossing with white powder.  Patterned paper was added to the bottom of the card front before adhering some coral ribbon and a bow.  To finish up, I adhered the yellow flower to the card front with liquid adhesive.


 


Have a great one!

SFYTT - Being Unique is Better Than Being Perfect


Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created using this month's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT), and some of my favorites from the current release. :)

 To create my card, I started with a gray card base, then adhered a strip of striped pattern paper along the right edge.  Next, I cut out a tag using the Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts die, then trimmed 1/4" off of both sides.  I stamped the flamingo from Fabulous Flamingo in turquoise and lime, then stamped the wing in gray before cutting it out with the coordinating Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts die.



I then used one of the larger circles from the Circles 'n Scallops die set, then stamped the sentiment in versamark ink before heat setting with white powder.  Next, I wrapped the tag with coral twine, then adhered it to the card base with pop dots.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the card front with pop dots, then embellished with yellow enamel dots.
