Soft and Sweet Valentine!

Hello, Bunny here again today on this first of February!
I am hooked on the Fresh Florals Series!  (also they are on a great special so check out at the bottom of the post!)
Today I have a soft and sweet Valentine for you. 

For the card base, I used the Basic Rectangle Backdrop and layered the Brick A2 Cover Plate on top of that I also cut a pink cover plate so I can have the pieces to inlay to make it look like a ribbon. Plus added the Mini 3D Bow. It's such a cool effect that makes it look like a ribbon is woven through the card front.  How sweet is that? I love that look, perfect for a baby card as well!

Then I used the same pink cardstock to match the "ribbon band" and embossed the image using Brutus Monroe's Pearly Rainbow Embossing Powder and the Fresh Floral Bouquet Stamp Set. It's just gorgeous on the soft pink cardstock, photos do not do it justice. 
Then using the Stitch Dot Heart Backdrop Die Set, I cut the heart out of the embossed floral bouquet image. 
Then using the scrap part that was left over, I used the "love" word die from the Slimline Hearts Windows & Words Cover Plate,  cut it out of the embossed part and then another one out of the plain card stock so I could layer them together, you can see that in this photo as it pops it up a little bit. 
Glued it on the heart and then heart on the brick and you have created a sweet valentine!

Elegant Heart Shaped Card

Hello, Bunny here today with a Fun but elegant Heart Shaped Card that is SO EASY!!!

First I stated with black cardstock, stamped the Fresh Florals Bouquet Stamp with embossing ink, and used Brutus Monroe Sterling Embossing Powder for this lovely floral design.
Then took the Stitch Dot Heart Backdrop, the largest size, decided which way it fit best and cut it out using the Stitch Dot Heart die. I cut a second Stitch Dot Heart the same size only in Red Cardstock to create the back of the card. Scored the top about 1/2 inch from the edge, so that it can be glued, but easily opened but still keep the Heart shape.

I added a So Many Stitched Sentiment Strip, the longest one so I had room to cut it, you can also use our Sentiment Strip Die Set for this. I place it at an angle, taped the Stitch Dot Heart die on and took it to the Big Shot, that way it fit the Stitch Dot Heart die perfectly!
Glued that on at an angle, then created the Mini Bow and glued it. 

These would be fun for a class room Valentine too!
Enjoy the Video!

Happy Bee-Day!

I'm working with the Bee Day Stamp and Die Set again!  This time I created a pretty Deco Foiled honeycomb background using the Honeycomb Stencil, Distress Oxides, Transfer Gel and Opal Deco Foil (one of my faves!)  Check this out:

I stamped, die cut and colored the Bee from Bee Kind as well as that gorgeous Fresh Floral Cascade image and popped them up over the top.  I stamped the sentiment onto the little banner included in the Fresh Floral set and inserted it.

Finally a few sequins and you've got yourself a bee-day card!

Thank you so much for stopping and I hope you'll come again soon!

Fresh Bouquet For You

Hello, how can it be Thursday already and the end of January!
Time just goes too fast!

Today I have a very soft floral card. 
My mom and I used to do floral arranging and this was just like recreating an arrangement for me!

I wanted very soft colors so I used a pale pink cardstock for the background and flowers, cream for the branch accents and light mint cardstock for the leaves from the Poppy Die Set and eucalyptus from Fresh Foliage Die Set.
I started with the Chicken Wire Stencil and Gunmetal Stencil Butter, it gives just that metal look of a chain link fence! Using the largest Rectangle Backdrop and the largest Stitch Dot Rectangle Backdrop which the stencil fits perfectly and even had guidelines to line it up easily...Jillian thinks of everything!
I layered the leaves and eucalyptus first, then added the Budding Branches with the round ones highlighted with Diamond Stickles by Ranger for a little bit of BLING!
The Daisy and Open Daisy were cut out of the soft pink and layered as well as the Poppy including the centers for all flowers! Again wanting a monochromatic look for them.
I cut the Grateful from the Fresh Florals Cascade Die Set and used the sentiment stamp from Fresh Florals Cascade Stamp Set. I stamped on the Sentiment banner that is included in the Fresh Florals Swag Die Set because it is a little bit shorter and fit that sentiment well.
I love the elegance of this card!
Like a fresh bouquet of flowers showing I am "grateful for your love"

The Poppy is one of our popular flower dies and is getting low on stock! So grab it if you are wanting it! We do not know how long it will take to get a re-order of it back in.

Thank you for joining me today! Have a Blessed weekend!

Sew Blessed A Mixed Media Style Card

Hi, Connie here with a mixed media type card using
the Feathered Friends Die and the
Ornamental Octagon Stencil along with other A Jillian
 Vance Design

The background is created on a folded flat white cardstock base using
the Ornamental Octogon Stencil and blue tones of  Distress Oxide inks.
The birds are cut using the Feathered Friends Die along with
the word SEW from black carstock.  The flower is cut using the die
from the Classic Candle Die set, a Christmas set.  Works great for this

The birds are popped up using dimensional adhesive.  The sentiment
is from the Sew Blessed Stamp set.  The flower is added along with 
a heart button from the Antique Sewing Machine Die, for
the center of the flower. 
This is a fun and an easy card!  Hope you will give it a go~

Thanks for stopping by~

Bee Happy

Happy Monday!  I'm using the Bee Kind stamp and die set again.  If I were a bee... I'd want to be a rainbow kind of bee.

I started with a rainbow background with the Honeycomb Stencil.  Then I used the same colors to stamp the solid bee.  I used my Misti so I could stamp more than once to get a solid image.  Then I used Ranger Archival Ink to stamp the detail over the top of each bee and die cut them using the die included in the set.

I splattered some white paint over the top and then popped the bees up onto the background.  Finally I die cut the sentiment from blue glitter paper and a heart from pink.

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and come again soon!
