Celebrate Birthday Wishes....

Hello & Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!
I've got a Fun Shaker Card to Share!
I haven't made one in awhile and thought???
Hey, why not? Am I Right? 

Anyway here's my Birthday Shaker Card --

Now if you've been following me.... you would know that
the background was made a while ago - 

And I didn't want to waste a really nice blended background
So I took my tag and scanned it into my computer so I could 
create a Border Tag shape -

After Many, Many, MANY attempts... I did get it as close as I could
and cut out that thin Black border Frame you see here --

The Balloons are also leftovers from my previous tag
and thought they would look great inside my shaker --

SumMore Fun - Mood Board Challenge #22

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
Today... starts another FUN Challenge over at: 

 YAY! I know how you
guys enjoy a good Challenge!

Our Mood Board is - 

 You can use the theme, pictures, or color combo
 You don't have to use
a stamp from SumMore Fun if you don't have one!

All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!

Here's what I created to inspire you --

I chose to go with the flowers I see in the photos --

I'm using the lovely Raisin Boat Stamp Set Called:


This set is so pretty - I colored all the
flowers already... I just need to get them on some cards!

I stamped my images on some Koh-I-Noor Bristol Smooth 
Watercolor paper with versamark ink and then heat embossed 
them with some black embossing powder - 
Then I cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut Machine
I colored the flowers with my Arteza Watercolor Pens (LOVE THEM)

Then pulled out some Distress Inks in - Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon,
& Spiced Marmalade and blended those colors together on a piece of
White Cardstock -
I pulled out a Lattice Background Die and cut it out with 
black cardstock -- Then adhered the background 
to my blended cardstock --
and attached it to a Black card base with some Fun Foam

I really liked the flowers but felt they needed some foliage, so 
I die cut 3 Flourish Leaves in some green Cardstock
I wanted my card to have some sparkle (Who Doesn't)
So I sprayed the card front, Flowers, & Leaves with my
Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spray - I put some heat on 
everything to make sure it was all dry.

Then tried to figure out a good place for my
leaves and flowers to sit on my card front -- 

After that, I went for my sentiment, I heat embossed it
in black as well and I used a Stitched Banner die to cut it out
Placed it near the flowers and then added a little Bling!

I hope you guys can join us --
 I would LOVE to see what you create!

Last Valentine's Day Card....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Today's my day to take over the blog at:
YAY for me... 🙌

Today I thought I would share my last Valentine's Day Card -

Valentine's Day was Yesterday and I hadn't had a chance
to share the card I made for a friend of mine --

I die cut my Heart Circle die twice, so I could
mix and match the design together - Then I adhered them
on top of a White 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card front -
Then I used a Stitched Rectangle Die to give my card
a nice border 

I attached my Card front to some Fun Foam, then attached it
to my Pink Cardbase --

My Dotted Heart Stamp & Sentiment Stamp are Heat Embossed with
some Fine Silver Embossing powder
I used my Clear Wink of Stella Pen to add some
Glitter to all the pink hearts, then added a couple
of Clear Ice Cube Jewels for a final Touch!

I'm using the Playing Cupid (9059-Z) Stamp Set

This set is Perfect for so many
occasions besides Valentine's Day -
I just love it!

Hello and Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!
I'm gonna try and make this post quick for ya --

Valentine's Day is Tomorrow and I wanted to
share another Card I made ---

So not all of this card is my idea -- The lower portion of my
card with the banner, heart, circle, & sequins are from a
tiny tag card I got from my card swap group 2 years ago --

We were supposed to make REGULAR Sized cards - But one
person in the group made these little tags -
Which I had no use for until now -- I cut it and used it for my card

I added the Stitched Chevron Die and LOVE word Dies
and the card layers and design --
I offset my LOVE word die, cutting it out 2 x's
Once in Black and Once in White

I'm Entering the Following Challenges --
Die Cuttin Diva's - Valentine's Day
Cut It Up Challenge #141 - Layers of Love
Jo's Scrap Shack  - Anything Goes

I'm happy with how this turned out
and I want to wish ALL of You
