flower burst birthday...

Hello everyone!!  I'm sharing a sunny little number that I made with the Flower Burst cover plate die and some yummy Bo Bunny glitter pastes!

I decided I wanted to use the Flower Burst cover plate die as a stencil, again, but this time using glitter paste.  I have several jars from Bo Bunny and two that I knew would work perfectly together... pumpkin and buttercup.  I die cut my stencil using the Flower Burst cover plate and then a piece of white cardstock using the Stitched Dot Rectangle die.   I used some repositionable adhesive to adhere the stencil to the cardstock panel and then taped the pieces to my work surface using painter's tape.  I then applied the pumpkin glitter paste to the center of the stencil and then quickly moved onto the buttercup paste.  This paste dries rather quickly so you have to work quickly if you want the two to mix together slightly like I did.   While I waited for the panel to dry (basically all day, lol!) I die cut the words happy and birthday from copper metallic cardstock and then from brown cardstock and adhered the pieces together.   I adhered the words and then attached my panel to a light yellow cardstock base.   I finished with a yellow enamel dot in the center of my flower.  If you decide to try this technique be aware that because the glitter paste is wet there will be some warping of the cardstock.  To lessen this you can try placing the piece once the paste has hardened between a folded piece of paper towel and placing something heavy on top.

Friend...How have you bean?

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Hope you're having a good week so far?!...

Today, I'm swinging in sharing a fun friendship card with you.

I started with my background, which I simply did some ink blending with and in this case, I thought I'd choose some 'summery/golden' colors to use. After, I used the Coffee Collage plate with my inked background and then adhered it to my card.

Once done, I added my sentiment pieces. Which for 'friend' I layered it a few times with white cardstock and then added some gold glitter cardstock to top. Then a fun sentiment to go with the theme of my background. Easy peasy, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Celebrate Balloons

AJVD, Balloons, Kecia Waters, celebrate
If it is time to celebrate, I'm thinking this card might be appropriate.  Kecia Waters on the blog today.

To make this card, I used the oval balloon die from the AJVD Balloon Trio die set to cut a balloon from a piece of acetate.  I used the negative space of that acetate as a stencil and proceeded to sponge various, brightly colored die inks onto a white cardstock panel.  I did take a black pen to draw the balloon strings.  I die cut the sentiment five times from white cardstock using the AJVD Celebrate DIEalogue Word Die.  I stacked these sentiments and adhered together.  Using a Spectrum Noir glitter pen I added some sparkle to the sentiment and adhered to the card.  Just a few sequins were added to the card as a finishing touch.

AJVD Products:

Here's wishing you a very special week.  Make sure you throw in a celebration or two along the way. 

Monday Smiles,

Flower Burst Hello

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Happy Friday!!

Today, I'm swinging in to share a super simple and bold card with you. :)

I started with my background panel. Which I chose three different distress inks with. In this case, yellow, pink, and teal. I started with blending my yellow, followed by my pink, and lastly followed by my teal. I made sure to blend my colors fairly well so that they really just flow into one another and give me those transition colors. You should be able to see the yellow goes into a orange-ish to pink and that pink goes into a purple-ish to teal? Hopefully that makes since?! ;)

After, I simply used black cardstock with the flower burst die and then added it over my panel. Which for my distress panel I did use it with a rectangle die so it fits perfectly together. Once done, I used black cardstock with my hello die, did this three times and layered it together. Lastly, I used some black glitter cardstock with the hello die and adhered it on my layered hello die cut piece. Then added it to my panel.!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Flower Burst Birthday

Good morning! Ardyth here with a beautiful warm (we can use some warmth in February, right?!) birthday card using the new Flower Burst cover plate.

I started by cutting a white panel with the cover plate. Next, I blended distress inks on another panel. My original thought was to just lay the blended panel behind the white die cut, but I do love the look of inlaid dies, so I cut that panel too.

I put some Be Creative tape behind the white die cut panel and started laying the blended petals into it. As I did that, it occurred to me that it would be fun to have some randomly placed silver petals for interest and shine. I took a scrap of silver cardstock and didn't worry about cutting the whole flower. Just enough to get a few petals to put on my card.

I finished the flower with a glittery yellow enamel dot.

I stamped my sentiment on a label from the Stitched Sentiment Trio Die set and popped it up with foam tape.

Here's a quick video:

so in love... with you

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!  I have one last valentine to share and this one uses non-traditional colors along with several A Jillian Vance Design dies.

Once, again, I got behind and had to come up with a card quickly for this week's post so I turned to my pad of Prima Zella Teal papers to help me get it done!  I die cut some light gray cardstock using the largest Stitched Scallop circle die making sure to not cut off the top completely so I would have a hinged card.  I then die cut a circle of pattered paper using a Polka Dot circle die and layered that on top.  There are several sheets of paper in the pad that have sayings on them.  I cut out one and die cut it with a Stitched Dot Heart die.  The AJVD Swirly Vine die was cut from additional paper and then cut into two pieces.  I layered on the heart using foam dimensionals and then tucked in the vines.  Finished off with the little sentiment "with you".  That was created by using a sentiment from the Succa for You stamp set and then cutting out the portions that I needed.  Going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use a die.
