Confetti Camera with Reverse Confetti

Hello!  I am up over on the Reverse Confetti blog today with my take on this round of Confetti Camera!  The challenge this time was to CASE a fellow Design Team Member's card and make it your own!  I actually had a VERY hard time with this because there were so many amazing ideas on the Reverse Confetti Pinterest boards!




I would love for you to go check out my project but you can find a snippet of my project below!



Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

Wine anyone?

Sip Sip

Hello!  Although today is National Margarita Day (and we are celebrating that tonight!), I have this great project using some new Avery Elle products from the newest release!
These are going to be staples for me......I love giving a bottle of wine for someone that hosts dinner!  I've made a wine tag using the new Sip Sip Hooray Elle-ments and I added a die cut bow from the Pop Up Wreath Elle-ments.

I also made a matching card using the new Wine Bottle Elle-ments and the Scalloped Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments.

SugarPea Designs Mix it Up Challenge #28

MixItUpChallenge3

Hello!  
I am here sharing a card using the February Mix it Up Challenge from SugarPea Designs over at the SugarPea Designs blog.  Make sure to check out the blog for all the details!


Since this month's challenge is "Lots of LOVE", I thought I'd break out an older but favorite SugarPea Designs stamp set.......Special Delivery.  The sentiment in this set is bold and PERFECT for this challenge!  

I started my card by stamping my own subtle background using the stitched heart stamp from Special Delivery.  I used some hearts from the Heart Journal Card and layered them onto some Zig Zag Stitched Circles to tie in with the sketch portion of the challenge.  My sentiment was stamped onto a strip of medium gray cardstock with black ink.  To finish, I added a Sugar Cut Heart Border and some sparkling clear sequins.

Today's card uses the fabulous new Color Blocking Die.  If you want clean lines and to add some interest with some new layouts, you need this die!  What's fun is that it can be used vertial or horizontal!

I went with a fun color combo since this would be a great "kiddo" card!  I used the new Bunny Buddies Die and Stamp Bundle for my main image.  The image was Copic colored and added with foam adhesive to a stitched rectangle.  This panel was added over top of my color blocked background!

Both of today's cards use the new set called Rustic Spring and its coordinating Rustic Spring dies.  You will all LOVE this set!  It is so adorable for spring and Easter but for anytime too!

My first card features a Distress Ink blended sky, a stitched hill using the Border Builders dies, Small Sunshine die, and Rainbows and Clouds dies.....all of which are previously released.  The adorable bicycle was Copic colored and some fresh spring flowers were added to the bright blue basket!  To finish my panel, I added my scene panel to a strip of tiny blue gingham pattern paper and added some yellow enamel dots.

For my second card, I pulled out yet another older die set.......Long and Skinny Rectangles.  I die cut some fun spring papers from Sunshine and Happiness from Simple Stories using the stitched rectangles.  I added the adorable bunny (and his arms die cut too so he can hold something in his hands!) and a carrot.  My die cut sentiment is from the new Brush Script Spring Word Dies.

Lil' Inker Designs Release: Day 1


Amy_Sweet Celebrations_Quilted Stitched2

Hello!  We are starting off Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs February Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for SPRING.......are you ready?  You should have arrived from the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.   Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!


I am starting this release off with my FAVORITE project using the new Sweet Celebrations stamps and coordinating Sweet Celebrations dies.  This set is my new LOVE and had me at florals!  

I started with making a frame using the Fringe Scalloped Rectangle Dies.....love the look it gives an otherwise white frame.  I've layered my frame over a white cardstock panel that was done with the Quilted Stitched So Sunny Die.  I added a grey diecut heart from Sweet Celebrations dies inside my frame and started building my bouquet of blooms from Sweet Celebrations.  I tucked my white heat embossed sentiment in with my blooms and added the die cut Celebrate Word Die (colored with ombre Copic blending).  As a final touch, a few Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were adhered using Multi Matte Medium.

If you love to color and are a cat person, this ADORABLE new set called Cat Treat will need to jump into your cart!!!  

I had some relaxing time really trying to focus on blending and some shading with Copics for this image.  Once it was done, it was paired perfectly with the Instant Camera Die.  The white square of the Polaroid was shaded with Tumbled Glass Distress Inks.  To the bottom, my sentiments were white heat embossed and a black burlap bow was added.  My Polaroid was added with foam adhesive to a chevron pattern paper panel that was die cut with the Stitched Mats: Rectangles and trimmed just a bit for a tiny white border.

Masculine love

Love theme

Hello!  Just stopping in to share a "love" themed card using some versatile Right at Home products from the last release.  Masculine cards are always hard to make.  Period.  I thought I would make a card to have on hand for my anniversary.


Using Pinterest, I came across this color story from an old Colour Q challenge and fell in love with not only the colors but the focal point of the colors.  So I recreated the heart using the large heart die from the Folded Sweetheart Die Set.  


I started by laying varying strips of cardstock onto a sheet of printer paper and adhering.  Next, simply die cut using the heart die.  My heart was added using foam adhesive to a very simple background of coordinating grey cardstock.  The die cut sentiment from the Folded Sweetheart Die Set was done twice and layered for an offset look.
