Bright Flowers, Happy Day!

>> Wednesday, April 16, 2014


After a very long cold winter I'm extra happy to say that here in CT spring has finally sprung - as least for a few days!  Before it's gone (I'm hearing 30° for tomorrow) I wanted to add something a little bright and cheery of my own!

I don't normally have too much time to work on challenges, but as I checked out SCS last week I saw a new technique called embedded die cuts that I just loved!  So I had to try it ;)

Unfortunately I'm relatively new to die cuts and I don't have very many to choose from, but I made do.  I originally started out thinking Easter, and ovals were the closest thing I had to egg shaped, so that's where I went.

I began by choosing the 4 dies that I used (from both the reg ovals and petite ovals nestie sets) and I taped them together making sure they were all touching at the bottom.

 Then I went through my paper stock and chose the bright happy colors that you see here and cut out the 4 ovals from each color.  After stamping my pink folded card with our Polka Dot background using black dye ink, I cut out the largest oval I used from the front and lined the inside of the oval with white cs, decided which color went where and taped them all into the center.  The  Polka Dot Flower Trio was stamped on a separate piece of cs and colored and fussy cut, the Sentiment was stamped, sponged and added on top with pop dots and a couple of gems.

All in all a very fun challenge that I'm sure I'll be using again - if only to use up all the extra ovals I ended up with :)

Thanks for visiting today!

Happy Spring!


Wedding Card

>> Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Hi Everyone,

I have another wedding card share for you today.  I chose a simple design that begins with the Kraft base being stamped by the Script Font Background in a white craft ink.  If you use this type of ink, please take a moment to let it dry, so that you don't have any smearing ;) 

Then I stamped the Wedding Ring Ensemble and the To Have and Hold sentiment in a brown dye ink, which gave the card a soft, less harsh look were I to have used a black ink.  I colored and die cut the image and added a mat and matching die cut flower.
A few gems were added, because that's what I seem to do, and voila!  I called it done :)
I love that this card is preserved on the blog in this photo...It was a hard to part with! lol!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you love & sunny skies!


Happy Easter

>> Monday, April 14, 2014

With Easter coming this weekend, I thought I'd share an Easter card with you today. When I first saw this image, I immediately thought of an old hymn we used to sing in church, "The Old Rugged Cross." So I tried to create a card that sort of has a rugged look.

The card base is Kraft CS that was stamped with the Lines O' Plenty background stamp in VersaMark ink.  A strip of brown CS with some burlap ribbon attached was added to the side of the card base. The main image was stamped with Memento Black ink on Kraft CS, colored with copics, die cute and layered on the brown CS. The sentiment was stamped in Black on Kraft CS, die cut and layered on brown as well. I added the heart charm with some brown baker's twine on the burlap ribbon. The charm says peace and love.

Thanks for stopping by today. This week's challenge is to "Pop goes 1 Color" and we want to see black, white and one other color on your card. You can see details here. We'd love to have you play along.

Until next time,


Daffodil Frame

>> Sunday, April 13, 2014

Hi all, I hope you are having the beautiful spring days. That is what inspired this card.

I stamped the Daffodil Frame with black ink on white cs and colored the image with Copic markers  the background of the image is a doted with Copics, and I used Spellbinder dies.

Have a wonderful day,



Eat, Drink & Be Married!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! It's getting to be that time of year again...weddings & engagements abound! This wonderful new greeting would have come in handy last year when I had 2 family weddings to attend. I just love the font on this! And the pretty candle/lily corner w/ the wedding rings is so pretty! I thought it would be nice to keep the background simple & all white then add the spring colors on the flowers. I stamped the Candle Corner and greeting directly on the top white panel and colored them. The cake was stamped on a separate piece along with several lilies. After coloring, I fussy cut the cake and a bunch of lilies and added them to the cake before attaching to my main panel. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

stamps: Girly Swirly Cake, Easter Lily & Cross, Eat Drink & Be Married Greeting, Candle & Rings Corner
ink: Memento tuxedo black
paper: X-Press It white
accessories: Copic markers
