Sew Many Thanks

Now that Valentine's Day is over I'm gonna be using a lot of green I think!  But they won't ALL be St. Patrick's Day themed... how about some green and gold for a thank you card?

I used the Mini Quilt Block dies and cut them from gold metallic cardstock and a foiled gel print to create the center panel.  I cut the Sew word from green and gold metallic cardstocks and layered them together.

That's me for today!  Thanks so much for stopping.  Hope you'll come again soon!

Happy Valentines Day - I Love You Shaker

I've got a Valentines Shaker for you today!  I love all of the possibilities with the Heart Backdrop dies!  I created this heart shaped frame by lining up a heart two sizes smaller than the large one inside and running them through the die cutting machine together.

I used another old favorite Valentines paper pack and used one with a newspaper type print to cut out the flowers and also for the branches.

And I cut the birdies from some silver and gold glitter paper from my last Your Paper Insider box.  I don't know where the fillers came from... I've had them for a long time!

That's me for today!  I hope you have a wonderful week!  Come again soon.

Love With Fresh Florals

Happy Monday!  It's been a while since I colored up the Fresh Florals images so I decided it was time!

I stamped, die cut and colored up my flowers for this one first.

I was trying to decide whether to use a gel print or some pretty patterned paper... maybe even a plaid... and I remembered this pretty heart backdrop, so I decided to use it over that pretty pink glitter paper from my latest Your Paper Insider box.

Lastly, that Grande Love cut in white, that pretty pink glitter and a darker pink... I layered all three with a bit of an offset so the layer below could peek through.

Pretty in Pink, am I right??

That's me for today!  Thanks so much for stopping and I hope you'll come again soon!

Love Forever and Always - Fresh Florals Sale

Welcome back!  Did you know that there is a special on the Fresh Florals collection going on right now?  For a limited time if you buy a Fresh Florals die set, you get the coordinating stamp set free!

I used a couple of the sets for today's card.  I stamped the Fresh Florals Arch onto a the white cardstock panel in Wow embossing ink and heat embossed it in gold embossing powder.  Then I stamped some of the images from the Fresh Florals Bouquet onto a separate piece of white cardstock, heat embossed and die cut them out so I could pop those up in the opposite corner.

I die cut the Grande Love die from gold cardstock and twice more from white so I could stack them and then popped it up onto the card.  I stamped a sentiment from the Valentine's Day stamp set in turquoise ink and cut it into a strip and added it to the card.  Finally some turquoise glitter hearts and sequins to finish it off.

That's me for today!  Be sure to take advantage of this great sale and pick up some Fresh Florals!  They're beautiful colored or not.

Come again soon!

You & Me Heart Shaped Card

Welcome back!  I've got a Heart Shaped card for you today!  I love the Stitched Dot Heart Backdrop die set!  I used it here to create nesting layers by nesting a larger die and the next smaller die inside it in some coordinating papers and then gluing them together on the base inside each other. 

I added some more flowers with the Bold Blooms Mega Die Set and some leafy vines from the Itsy Bitsy Florals.

And finally, a sentiment from the Valetine's Day stamp set.

That's me for today!  Thanks so much for stopping!

Love and Flowers Shaker Card

Welcome back!  I've got a pretty slimline Valentine shaker for you today!

With the Slimline Heart Windows die it's so easy to create a shaker.  I just cut the slimline panel from white and adhered some acetate to the back of it.  Then I added some foam strips around the outside of the panel and in between the heart windows.  When creating a vertical shaker sometimes I like to break it up into sections so the fillings don't just fall to the bottom.

I  adhered the two bottom layers and then laid the shaker fillings where the windows would fall and finally popped the windows over the top of the fillings.

I added some layered flowers and the Grande Love word die cut in glitter paper.

Did you know that all slimlines are on sale right now Buy One Get One??

That's me for today!  Thanks so much for stopping!  Come again soon!
