Hello

Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  I've got a pretty card with a fun technique to share with you.  
I used watercolor paper and some color shine sprays to create the background.  I started by spraying the color shine onto my craft mat and then a couple sprays of water.  Then I simply put the watercolor paper into the ink.  I sprayed the paper a few more times with the color shine until I was happy with the colors.   Then I stamped and heat embossed this pretty flower from Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamp set on vellum. 

Next, I used a debossing folder for the 'hello' sentiment at the bottom.  I always struggle adding vellum layers to my cards for fear the adhesive will show through so, I stitched the vellum to the background layers with my sewing machine.  To finish it up, I added some sequins from the Frozen mix.


I hope I've inspired you to make something beautiful today.  Please visit my blog if you'd like more details on all the p…

Spring Happy Birthday Card!

Hi, Marina is here and I'm going to inspire you with fresh spring colors of my card! I'm dreaming about Spring and it's beautiful flowers! So I've found some of them in the Friendship BlessingsStamp Set :) It was a real pleasure to color these beauties with Zig Clean Color Markers. I used Cobalt Blue, Blue, Violet, Light Violet and Yellow colors. To mix the colors I used a waterbrush.

Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the amazing Just A Rose Set! I'm in love with these stylish sentiments and use them a lot!


I also picked a pair of sequins from the Chantilly Cream and Leather&Pink Lace mixes as little accents.
At the end I sprinkled all the card with a perl spray to make it sparkle!


Thanks for stopping by! Be inspired!

For Baby

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing weekend full of all that you love.  I had a chance to spend some time in my craft room and had a bunch of fun creating this little shaker card using the sweet Kennedy Grace set, Sweet Baby Mine.  Take a look -


This shaker was pretty easy to make.  The little hippo colored up so easily with Copic markers.  Warm grays along with soft pinks and greens were used to color her up.  I used a specialty cardstock for this card called Stardream.  It had a beautiful soft shine to it that I wasn't able to catch in the photo.  I fashioned a layer of fun foam with a circle cut out for the shaker and attached it to the card base.  A die was used to cut the circle and frame in the top layer and glued acetate to the back side so a window that was created.  The sequins were added into the opened window and the top layer was adhered to the fun foam (that part was a little tricky, I'm not going to lie).  Actually, the hardest part of this card w…

Hydrangea shaker card

Hello everybody! It's Donna here and I'm just back from a lovely holiday on the other side of Australia visiting extended family. (As a bonus we had lovely sunny weather, so we got to be outdoors a lot!) Before I left, I had a lot of fun with the current Tic Tac Toe challenge. (Random fact: we call this game noughts and crosses here in Australia)  Here is what I created. I used the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.


I went diagonally down the board, and used Die Cuts, Embossing and Flowers. Also as a bonus there is some sequin action too!


I used Copics to colour the lovely Hydrangea image and then cut it out right on the black outline. I used a black pen around the edges of the image to hide the white core of the card. I then used a die to cut out the window panel from both white cardstock and fun foam. I added a layer of clear plastic at the front and added sequins to each window. The sequins I used are "Dress blues". Aren't they fabulous? I have also put …

Flowers, sequins and buttons.

Happy new year everyone.  Its Karen on the blog today with a card inspired by the tic tac toe board, using  the line, flowers, sequins and buttons.

My card features the stamp set called Kindness Medley.  I started by cutting the window in my white cardstock.  I just happened to have a scrap of the gold/yellow paper sitting on my desk so popped that in behind my window.  I had stamped the sentiment first then cut a piece of foam to raise the card from the sentiment square.  The flowers were stamped in steel grey ink and coloured using pencil.  I proceeded to fussy cut them close to the lines and decided not to use the leaves.

Sunshine on the daisies was the perfect sequin blend to add to my card.  I realised I had not used any buttons so the obvious place was the flower centres.  After a lot of contemplation I need up using only the one button in the centre of the middle flower.  Sometimes less is definitely more.


I hope you to will be inspired by the tic tac toe board and share your …

Thinking about you with Kennedy Grace Creations

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my project inspiration for Kennedy Grace Creations using the Tic Tac Toe board. I sure would love to see you playing along and posting your projects over on our Facebook Fan page
Using the Tic Tac Toe board below, I went with a straight line down the left side using Die Cuts, Twine and Buttons.  The stamp set I chose to use is Sing A New Song, not sure about you but I am ready for winter to be over. I am a Florida girl, and do not care for cold weather. And the last couple weeks has been too cold for my bones. So this stamp set made me happy for my favorite season of the year.  First I stamped the tree image with the hanging bird house. I used masking fluid to mask it off and spritzed with Summer Sky Shimmer Spray from Imagine Crafts. I removed the masking fluid and went about stamping the remainder of my card topper. I used Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp the flowers, and the tree, and Memento Dandelion to stamp the sun. I used…

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…
