Love card

Hi everyone!  Today's Love card features all kinds of new Celebra'tions goodies!  First of all, there are new HEART shaped dies with piercing elements.  Pierced heart dies?  YES please!!  Oh and did I mention there were new Pierced Star dies?  Yes to those too :-)
 I used a piece of the Special Occasion Prints patterned paper and frame it with a heart die cut opening to make this simple wedding/love card.  I added a couple sequins and enamel heart for embellies.
Here are the lovely new Pierced Heart dies.  Happy sigh...
The sentiment is from the set of 3 word die sets called All You these measure around 2":
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here's a close up picture.

Happy birthday elephant

Hi everyone!  Today's birthday card features the adorable elephant image from Celebra'tions Your Day stamp set and he is framed by the Framed Canvas embossing folder with an oval cut out.
This little guy makes me smile!!  I paper pieced each present with a different patterned paper from the Celebra'tion Prints pack and I accented it with some of the new sequins.  Another reason I like this elephant is cause it's easy coloring - I basically colored him with 2 grey Copic markers, a touch of light brown on the ground and called it done.  Oh and paper piecing the presents = no coloring.  Easy peasy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Fun filled green rings

Hi everyone!  I want to thank everyone for the well wishes, comments and emails after my last post.  Sadly this new course of meds does not seem to be helping with my vertigo, so my next step is to see an ear specialist.  Fingers crossed!

Today I am sharing another card using the new Celebra'tions release.  You can check out the entire Celebra'tions collection here! 

My card uses the cute new die set called, Fun Filled Rings.  It's adorable!  The set has 9 circle rings that all nest and have varying widths!!
 I cut my rings in the various green cardstock and patterned paper and made a fun bulls-eye card!  The sentiment is from the stamp set # Tweet.

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up picture.

Celebrate the new Celebra'tions release!

Hi everyone!  Long time no post.  It's been almost a month since I posted because sadly I've been suffering from chronic vertigo due to an inner ear issue.  I've been to doctors, chiropractors and even got an emergency root canal thinking my molar was causing the ear issue.  Nothing has taken this away yet.  I started a new course of medication yesterday, so keep me in your thoughts.  This experience has given me a new found appreciation for people who have to live with chronic debilitating issues of any kind.

But enough of that!  Today I am sharing one of the several Celebra'tions cards I made for the Spellbinders booth at CHA (which won the award for the BEST booth of the show!!).  The newest stamps, dies and papers from the Celebra'tions collection have just been released and they are amazing!  Be sure to check the entire new release which has new patterned paper, sequins, more stamp sets and LOTS of dies!!
 I used the new Decorative Card Front Confetti Plate and it is ah-mazing with endless possibilities including Swiss Cheese -lol!  I die cut it in white cardstock and adhered some of the new patterned paper and coordinating cardstock behind the openings.
Here is Confetti Plate:
The flower and leaves are from the Just Because stamp and die set.  The Celebrate sentiment is from the Fun Sentiment die set.

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up picture.

3D hot air balloon card

Hi everyone!  I have a fun hot air balloon card to share today.  Sadly, I've never seen a hot air balloon in person, but I googled images of them and was struck by how bright and colorful they are!  My card features one of Spellbinders' new Inspire line die, Up and Away.
 
I created this 3D balloon by die cutting and trimming the balloon portion 5 times each in a bright fun color.  I pieced the bows under each panel with a matching cardstock color.  I took a couple pictures to show you how it was done.
The clouds are from the Rainy Day die set and I colored them with a pale blue marker to make them stand out a bit.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  Here's a close up picture of the balloon.

Ahoy!

Hi everyone!  I have a fun shaker card to share today.  This is also my last day my guesting at Eyelet Outlet and Brads and I used 2 brads can you spot them?
Head on over to their blog to see my final guest post and if you leave a comment over there 1 lucky commenter will win a prize!
 Well, if in case you haven't spotted them, the brads are the anchors!  Aren't they adorable?!?  I used my much loved circle dies to create the little frame of my shaker part and the Font One Lowercase die set for the sentiment.  This font die set is really versitile, not too fancy, not too plain.
The adorable light house is from a Reverse Confetti stamp set, colored with Copics and filled with a variety of sequins and white beads.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Sorry, no close up picture today, I accidentally deleted it -oops!

Butterfly birthday wishes

Hi everyone!  I have a butterfly birthday card to share today which uses five different kinds of gold brads!  Yep 5!!  This is Day 3 of my guesting at Eyelet Outlet and Brads and I invite you to head on over to their blog to see my guest post and check out the wide range of products their store carries.
I loved the idea of doing an ombre effect with the color and sizing of the butterflies.  As the butterflies got smaller and lighter in color, I decreased the size of my center brad.  The butterflies came from 3 different die sets, the bottom butterfly is from Les Papillions, the middle is from Flutters and the top is from Les Papillions Two.
Here are all 3 sets:
 And the gold accents scattered about are the 1/16 mini gold and 1/8 gold brads.  SO adorable!  The little 1/16th size are super cute and perfectly scaled for cards.  They really make me happy.

The subtle background you're seeing is made from a stamp.  I stamped the little grid background stamp from the Make A Statement set in Versamark and embossed it with sparkle powder.  I love the subtle effect it creates.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
Spellbinders Dies: S4-371 Les Papillions, S4-395 Les Papillions Two and S2-073 Flutters Shapeabilities®
Eyelet Outlet and Brads: 1/16 mini gold brads, 1/8 gold brads, 8mm gold brads, Heart brads
Stamps: Verve Stamps, Make a Statement

Hello - Love You

Hi everyone!  I have a fun card to share today using speech bubbles in a couple of ways.  This is Day 2 of my guesting at Eyelet Outlet and Brads and I used 2 brads for the sentiments!  Super cute!  Head on over to their blog to see my guest post and check out the wide range of products their store carries.
First I adhered some washi tape across the card base and die cut a square using the Pierced Squares die.  I die cut a speech bubble (Conversation Bubble 2) into the square and used the negative opening as a frame of sorts.  I attached the brads to an oval speech bubble (Conversation Bubble 3) and popped it up over the washi tape.  I added a couple rhinestones from the pink and green Jewel Strips!
The Conversation Bubble dies:

Urban Blooms with Flower brads -guest designer spot

Hi everyone!  I am the guest designer for Eyelet Outlet and Brads this month and have several fun projects to share over the next few days.  Brads have come a loooong way over the years and now they have cute designs with just about anything you can think of, I mean bacon and eggs? Yes please!  Head on over to their blog to see my first guest post and check out the wide range of products their store carries.  Lots of really fun stuff!

Today I made a trio of 4x4 note cards using Spellbinders new Urban Blooms dies, scalloped squares and some ADORABLE flower brads for the centers.  How cute, right?!?
I started out die cutting and layering the 2 smallest sizes from my Urban Bloom flowers in white cardstock, then I chose patterned paper to coordinate with the flower brad.  I used a small circle die cut under the brad to make it to stand out.  I also used a couple of mini butterfly brads as accents (you can see them above the "friend" and "smile" sentiments).
Here are the Urban Blooms dies:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Here's a close up picture showing the dimension of these gorgeous flowers.
