Hi guys!  I’m back today with a card that mainly uses dies.  I had so much fun putting this card together!  If you’re like me, then you love anything tiny and little.  I used Circle Showcase to frame my little scene and even though this was meant for Pockets & Pages Scrapbooking, it’s also perfect for cards!

The dies are Little Bits Sun & Clouds, Little Bits Flowers & Stems, and Grass border.  The sentiment is from The Little Things and I thought it fit my scene perfectly.

It’s our last day of sneak peeks and today I’m showcasing Moka Madison.  Here she is all ready to go in her soccer uniform, ready for the big game.  I love how sweet she looks.  I used Sports Balls, Star Stacklets and Banner Stacklets 1 to accent my card.

 I love how this sentiment could be used as a birthday greeting or as encouragement for a big game.  Do you have any all stars that would love a card with Madison on it?

Hi everyone, it’s day 2 of our sneak peeks and I have a new take on an older release.  My first card uses Made in the Shade 2 which coordinates with Shade Tree Cutting Plate.  This set has four more adorable scenes to use with the popular cutting plate, Shade Tree.  One of my favorite seasons is fall and this scarecrow by the leaf pile is adorable!

My 2nd card uses some fun additions to the Little Bits CollectionLittle Bits Picnic Basket and Ants!  I love how these little dies coordinate to create a fun story!  I also used Little Bits Sun & Clouds and Build a Scene Rolling Hills.  The apples are from Apple Stacklets and work so well with the picnic basket.  I love these dies!

Hi everyone, I’m so excited to share my sneak peeks today, school is right around the corner and we’re going to live it up this month before school starts!    Today I have a card using Mischief Maker Back to School and I think she’s so cute!  I paper pieced her skirt and hair bow and love her smart looking glasses.  These glasses dies, Little Bits Eyeglasses, frame her face perfectly.  Apple Stacklets and Apple Stems & Seeds are also new this month and I love all the different sizes of apples in this set!

Rhinestones added some fun little details to her glasses.

My 2nd project uses a super fun die, Pencil Topper, and I think this is such a clever die!  My kids LOVE having fun pencil toppers and these adorable guys are fitting for back to school!  These critters are from Smarty Pants and have coordinating dies for perfect cuts every time.  The Pencil Topper would also be great for letting your kids make their own!

July2014.5

Hi everyone!  I’m back with a super fun card that would be perfect for a friend, other half, neighbor…or whomever you “click with”!  Today’s cast of characters is the Camera Shape Die, a few sequins, a stamp and Wink of Stella glitter pen.   

July2014.1

I used my Evolution to die cut the Camera.  Dimensionals helped my layers come alive.   

July2014.2

TIP:  If you find your card stock is snug in the die, use wax paper and layer your card stock on top of that…you’ll get a die cut that easily pops out. Easy peasy!  Or, if you have extra foam ejection sheets, that would work well too.  

July2014.3

Once my layers were die cut, I attached them and used a Wink of Stella glitter pen to add some sparkle to the lens and flash.

July2014.4

I added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella glitter pen and stamped the sentiment (Paper Smooches).

July2014.7

  A few sequins later and my card is complete! Hope you enjoyed today’s card!  Don’t forget that you can get 20% off your total at checkout by using my special code, POP.

Ice Cream!

ShellyFelt7.19.1

Hi everyone, summer is in full swing and what makes you think of summertime?  Ice cream, of course!  For today’s card I’m using felt…look at these super yummy colors!  I used the new Little Bits dies, Ice Cream Cone.  Isn’t this die sooooo cute?  I love any little ice cream treat or chocolate dies and these were perfect!  I paired that with the Scribbles Cutting Plate and I love how it looks with the little cones…almost like a strawberry topping drizzled on the background.  

ShellyFelt7.19.2Love the fun flavors of felt in Khaki, Lilac, Robin’s Egg and Cherry Blossom.  Do you use felt in any of your cards?  I love the look a little bit of felt can add to my project.  Hope you enjoyed today’s post!
