Hello, everyone, I’m back with a card using Taylored Expression’s March SOTM. I love this set and lately, I’ve been loving layers. I used MME Memorable (which coordinates with the SOTM), this paper is gorgeous! You can either get the SOTM delivered alone, or with the Key Ingredients Kit as a Deluxe Subscription. Either way, you won’t be disappointed!
I must be a girly girl, I love this color combination…and the flower and butterfly are soooo pretty!
I used a variety of dies for this card and what I love about them is how well they coordinate together. I’ve used these dies over and over, they’re some of my favorites!
That gorgeous scallop die with the hearts is Medium Layering Doily die and it’s the perfect size to use alone or for layering. Label Stacklets 3 and Frame It Up 1 are also dies I use all the time and I love the various sizes of Banner Stacklets 2. Last but not least, the coordinating Make It Memorable dies are a must have, I loving making those images pop!
Hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, friends! It’s Friday and I have a gorgeous butterfly from A Day For Daisies new release, Musical Butterflies, to share with you. I think the musical notes on the wings are so elegant. The butterfly I used, Freehand Butterfly 3, is 50% off, and one I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up again. It’s gorgeous!
I printed the image twice and covered the bottom image with glitter glass. The 2nd layer I colored with Copics and lined the wings with glitter glass. It’s hard to tell in the pictures, however, the texture is wonderful.
I used the Linen & Canvas Impression Plate (Papertrey Ink) and Tessatina Border and Prim Poppy (both Memory Box dies) to keep my card CAS. I think this would make a great sympathy, birthday, or thinking of you card.
Want to see what the rest of the DT came up with?
Hope you all have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by!

Today’s sneak peek uses a gorgeous background stamp, Chevron. I used Elegant Butterflies with watercolor paper and colored it in with watercolor pencils. The rose is Prima Laraine Roses – Sorbet.

I’ve been wanting to play along for awhile and found a little extra time on my hands today. It’s my first time playing Tuesday Trigger and here’s the inspiration. Isn’t it gorgeous?
And here’s what I came up with.
I used a Krylon gold pen for the edges…it adds a nice pop in person.
Several layers make the image really stand out.
What do you think? I really had fun with the challenge. The butterfly is from Antique Flowers & Butterflies (Hero Arts) and colored with Copics. Looking forward to next week’s challenge! Thanks for stopping by!

Today’s release at A Day For Daisies is oh so sassy! This lovely lady is Perplexed and is part of the new release, Bewildered.
There’s also a new challenge up…Found Paper. Found paper can be anything, a receipt, ticket stub, phone book page, or in my case, a children’s dictionary that was in pretty bad shape. I used the dictionary paper for the flowers and butterfly. There’s also free digi available for you to play along with. Be sure to check out the ADFD blog to play along.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a great weekend!

A quick post today as it’s been a crazy busy past few weeks. Lots of doctor’s appointments, running around and in general, keeping up. I needed a sympathy card awhile back and used Cheery Lynn dies, PTI banner dies and stamps, and the small square is the Fleur de Lis die (Spellbinders). I cut a custom sized envie with my Cameo to fit the card as the banner makes it an odd size. Last year I bought a ream of Neenah Linen Solar White 24# writing paper to line my cards and found it works well for envelopes too. 500 sheets will last a long time! Thanks for stopping by!

I won a set of Card Creator dies from Stamping Scrapping! These dies will be released
at the end of this month this summer, but these are the ATC Card Creator dies and are perfectly sized for ATCs with the layers. Thanks, Cindy! They made my layering a breeze and were so fun to create with! Here’s what they look like:
For this card I used three of the ATC Card Creator dies and Cathedral Lace (Cheery Lynn Designs). The mini roses were made with a McGill flower punch and the leaf/vine is a Sizzlet die. Stamp is from Words of Wisdom (Stampin Up, retired).
This card was made using ATC Card Creator dies, Spellbinders Creative Pages Two, and a butterfly die from Cheery Lynn Designs. I kept it pretty simple and only added some seam binding that I dyed. I have a lot to catch up on and will be back later for more. Thanks for stopping by!
