A Sympathy Card

I have a sympathy card to share today that I made using the

I started with some Crate Paper patterned paper for my background.
I stamped my sentiment (from Lots to Say stamp set) onto a Love Note diecut.
I added some buttons and twine and a Crate Paper embellishment
and adhered the diecut to my card using dimensional adhesive.


Oh, and before you go, I just wanted to let you know that I'm going to have
a card featured in the next Reverse Confetti newsletter for the Inspiration Station (on March 13th).

Sparkle & Shine Challenge #1

*Note: this is my second post for today.
Please scroll down to see the card I made for Reverse Confetti's SFYTT.

There's a brand new challenge in blogland called Sparkle and Shine Challenge,
which is being sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh.

The founders of the Sparkle and Shine Challenge asked the Pretty Pink Posh DT
to play along with their first challenge.
Here it is:

Isn't it fun?
It totally made me think of Shamrocks and St. Patrick's Day.
So I searched through my PPP dies to find something I could use
to make a "four-leaf clover."
Here's my card:

Can you guess which dies I used to make my window?
It's the oval die from the Stitched Tags Dies!
And for the stem, I used the end of the scalloped border die from Stitched Borders 2 Dies.
I stamped the sentiment on my white card front using PTI's Wonderful Words Additions
and diecut the "lucky" using the coordinating dies.
I filled my shaker with Pretty Pink Posh's Woodland Mix Sequins.

So be sure to check out Sparkle and Shine Challenge
to see what everyone else made for the first challenge,
and to play along as well!

Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try #22

Today, I have a card to share for Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try #22: 

Here's my card...

I diecut the card-stock with the Documented Confetti Cuts and layered it over some Echo Park patterned paper.
On it, I stamped the puppy from Puppy Love and then stamped the glasses from Oliver Owl.
I created the striped banner using the banner from Tag Me Confetti Cuts and then used the
small tag from Tag Me Confetti Cuts to diecut the ends of the patterned paper strip on which I stamped the sentiment from Sugary Sweet Sentiments.



Be sure to head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog to see
the other designers' takes on the sketch and to play along, if you'd like.

Hello Spring

Hi there! I'm popping in today with a card I made to welcome in spring!

Now, you might think of the Chickaniddy Crafts Scrumptious as a fabulous fall line --
which it is indeed -- but I found that these products were also perfect to make a "Hello Spring" card!
(Note: I know I'm being overly optimistic with making a "Spring" card in February --
especially when we probably won't see spring until the end of April (but a girl can dream, right?)

I started with the Scrumptious Journal Tag stickers, or more specifically, the "Hello" floral sticker near the bottom.

Here's my card:

I started by diecutting a piece of Check Please patterned paper with a scalloped rectangle die.

I adhered a piece of white card stock over top that I diecut using a stitched rectangle die.

 I wanted to use the "Hello" sticker from the Scrumptious Journal Tag stickers, but I also wanted to add the word "spring", so I trimmed out the sticker while it was still on the backing and cut it in half, like this:

 Once cut apart, I adhered the sticker to the white card stock panel.

 I made a banner by diecutting the New Harvest patterned paper into a long banner, trimming
down the top and bottom and adhering some Twirly Girly alphabet stickers.

Here's a close-up of the sticker once the card was done:

Cas(e) this Sketch #112

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #112 designed by Chrissy Larson:

Isn't this a cool sketch?
I'll admit that I was a little stumped, but then I remembered my large Simon Says Stamp Hello Die
and decided to use it to make my card. 

Isn't it fun? I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!
I used some PTI stamper's select white, sweet blush, berry sorbet & aqua mist cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment (from PTI's Wonderful Words: Hello) in berry sorbet ink.
The enamel dots are My Mind's Eye.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, March 5th to link up your card.
