Happy Birthday

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend!  My leaves are already starting to turn and I used that for my inspiration.  Today my card uses Mega Leaves.  These dies are amazing and I love that they have the leaf veins on them.  I used Brusho Crystal Colours on watercolor paper, let them dry, and die cut the leaves.

It’s hard to see but I spritzed the leaves and background with Goosebumps Texture Spray in Clear…it added some subtle dimension and a soft shine.  It almost gives it a wet look, without being too much.  The sentiment is from Free Spirit and I have fallen in love with Earl Grey and used Frame in Frame Cutting Plate for my frame.

I think this would make a great masculine birthday card!  A few foam squares adds dimension to my frame and leaf, and my card is finished!  Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks So Much!

Happy Wednesday! I’m back with some Pinterest Inspiration and today my inspiration is from the amazing Kay Miller! I am in love with Kay’s ability to create clean and simple cards that create an eye popping scene with dies, stamps and color.  Today I used Oh Happy Day and Die Combo and I love the images in this set!  I colored them with Copics and used P&P Stitched Essentials and Label Stacklets 6 for my frame.

I sponged Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and added the Grass Border to bring my scene together.  A few sequins later completed the look and I was done!

Taylored Expressions Release Day: You’ve Got Mail Halloween

It’s Release Day and all of the new products are now available to bring home!  Woohoo!  I have one last project to share and it uses You’ve Got Mail Halloween.  The sequins are so cute that I had to use them and make a shaker card.  :)

You've Got Mail Halloween

I used Tag Stacklets 2 and BAS Halloween Paper Kit, I love how the bow looks with this paper!  Mini Mix & Match Bows works for so many projects, it’s at the top of my favorites list.

You've Got Mail Halloween The image was colored with Copics and I adhered two of the sequins (ghost and bat) to the card stock.  I’m loving the super fun sequins and colors in this card!

It’s Day 3 of Release Week and I have two super fun projects to share today!  My first sneak peek uses Tag Along Halloween and Die Combo and these critters are so cute!  I used Build a Scene Halloween Paper Kit and absolutely love this paper.  I also used the fence from Wrought Iron Gate & Fence.

Tag Along Halloween

Don’t these cute little bats kill you?  Ugh!  They are so cute, I love their little expressions and teeth!  The “eek” stamp is also a part of the Tag Along Halloween stamp set.

Tag Along Halloween I had a lot of fun coloring these images.  :)

Tag Along Halloween

My second project uses the Test Tube Caddy and some fun new dies.  I’m loving the new BAS Halloween Kit, I had to use it for my treat caddies!  So my dies are Little Bits Black Cat, Little Bits Potion Bottles, Spooky Arbor & Accessories, Halloween Confetti and Wrought Iron Gate & Fence.

See the cute little ghost?  It’s from the BAS Halloween sequins and was too cute to not use.

It’s day 2 of Release Week and I have two more sneak peeks to share today!  My first project showcases a beautiful new set, Simply Stamped Daisies and wow, these daisies are gorgeous!  There are so many new things in this release that I’m excited about, take a look at this new embossing folder, Weathered.

Simply Stamped Daisies

I love how these stamps are layered…they give the flowers and leaves such a nice contrast!  The tag is Build a Tag 5 and I’m loving the stitched border.  I’m also loving the sentiment and font used for Simply Stamped Daisies, and it was a perfect fit for in my tag.

Simply Stamped Daisies My second project uses a sentiment stamp set, Free Spirit, and it has a nice variety of sentiments.  It’s a great all around set for a number of occasions.  I used Happy Birthday for my card today, coming from a big family, I can never have enough birthday cards on hand.  I love this script…I’m a fountain pen lover and this reminds me of something that was handwritten.  I used Frame in Frame Cutting Plate for my frame and Fine Feathers as my accent pieces.

Free Spirit

A few sequins from Build a Scene Sequins and Build a Scene Halloween Sequins (for the stars) were just what I needed to make a shaker card.

Free Spirit I cut the frame several times out of 3 different colors of card stock (I was going for a gradient look), Salt Water Taffy, Cookie Monster and Sprinkles.  

Free Spirit

I really like how Fine Feathers has several different sizes of feathers to use.

Hi guys, I hope you all are having a wonderful summer so far!  I can hardly believe it’s August and school is right around the corner for us!  With that said, now is the perfect time to get started on those Halloween projects and today’s sneak peeks are sure to give you some fun ideas!

My first sneak peek uses a fun new set that works well with Peek A Boo Circles, Peek A Book Pumpkins & Die Combo.  I absolutely love the patterns these cute pumpkins have.  I die cut another pumpkin to layer, so it would pop a bit.  There are a few sizes of the pumpkins and would be perfect mixed together.  I used some fun new dies, Little Bits Witch, Little Bits Sign Post and Halloween Confetti for the other two circles.  

Peek a Boo Pumpkins

Looking through the dies I had, I came across Ice Border, which is perfect for that drippy goo look for Halloween.  The patterned paper and sequins are from Build A Scene Halloween Matched Kit and wait ’til you see the awesome patterned paper in this kit!

Peek a Boo Pumpkins

My 2nd sneak peek uses some super fun dies…and nothing but dies!  If you liked Garden Arbor & Gate, then you’re going to love Wrought Iron Gate & Fence.  This is definitely has a nice graveyard feel to it and I couldn’t wait to use it!  These dies will also work well with Garden Arbor & Gate.  I took out Spooky Trees Cutting Plate and cut some of the lower branches off.  I really like how it changes the look of the cutting plate!

Wrought Iron Gate & Fence

My accent pieces are Halloween Confetti and Little Bits Witch.  I just love how these dies work for so many things!

Hey, guys, it’s Release Day and all of the new products are available!  I can’t tell you how much I loved this release and all the fun I had with it!  Today’s post uses Berry Special and Little Bits Fruit for my mini 3×3 cards.

ShellyBerrySpecialThurs1

I used Bead Board Embossing Folder for two of my mini cards.  I just think these Little Bits Fruit dies are the sweetest! Build a Tag 2 provided the cute squares for the fruit.

Inside each of the cards are the sentiments that match them.  Who wouldn’t love to find one of these notes tucked away somewhere?
