A little something Sweet!

Morning! I am here with a quick, fun little treat bag!



I just sat down with some stamps last night and came up with a fun treat bag using the Sweet Treat Tent and stamps from Sweet Thing!


I'm *crazy* about this new embossing powder, it's Gold Tinsel from Recollections. It's SO sparkly, even after you heat emboss! I've found my new favorite gold! I also embossed the heart border from Whole Lotta Hearts in white ink. The aqua tag, white tag, and vellum tag are all from Tag Me. The aqua and white are from the same die, I just trimmed the aqua tag down a bit to be smaller than the white tag.


This is a view from the side. It's empty because I don't keep candy in the house on account of I'll eat it. Very bad. Ha!

I'm so happy you stopped by to visit today! Enjoy your HUMP DAY!

Spread Your Wings and Fly!

Good morning and happy Saturday! Oh I love today, I have NO plans all day but to craft away in my my little cave! These are the best kind of days:) This morning I decided to play along in this week's Case Study challenge. Danielle Flanders is this month's muse and I have always loved her work. Great excuse to be inspired by her!


I loved this soft, delicate card and went pretty literal with my interpretation


I used Paper Crane by Reverse Confetti for my card. It's a very delicate stamp set that I thought would work perfectly for this challenge. I stamped the crane in pink, turqouise, and yellow ink on the card base, in the upper portion of the card. 


I layered Vellum on top of that to not only tone down the bright colors, but because that's what the great Danielle did too! Ha! I sewed the vellum on the top of the card and that's the only way it's held down onto the card. Once I had the vellum on, I added all the finishing touches. The frame I got from Michaels and I think it's from Simple Stories, it was a package of different colored frames. So glad I can finally use them! I embossed the crane in white on vellum and cut it out, and also embossed the triangle trio from Tinsel 'n Trim in white and added them to the card as well. 


That's all I have today, thanks for stopping by!

Hey Sweet Thing!!

Hey there! I'm back with another challenge card, this time for a new challenge blog I found, The Card Concept! I'm thinking this is going to be an awesome challenge blog, can't wait to see what's next!
But before I worry about that, I tackled this weeks challenge, Monochromatic
 Pink!


Just the excuse I needed to pull out my Reverse Confetti Valentine's stamps again:)




I used the small arrow from Crushin' in white ink along the border of the card, and Whole Lotta Hearts on the background. As a last minute addition, I added Stardust Stickles to the hearts. 


For the main image panel, I cut out a white Love Note and then a tag from Tag Me in Vellum. I embossed the sentiment, from Sweet Thing, in white ink on the vellum tag and then stamped "sweet" on a flag die cut from the Tag Me banner die. Then I cut out an Arrow and cut it in half so I could lengthen it behind the sentiment.

That's all I have for today, thanks for stopping by!

Hey there! I have a card to share today with this week's Retro Sketch!


As soon as I saw the sketch I knew what I wanted to do with it!


I am SO in love with Zentangles and the fun Dangles that you can create, and that's how I was inspired to make this card! I have arrow dangles! The arrows and the sentiment are from Crushin' by Reverse Confetti. I also used the hearts from the Love Note dies and the Double Edge Scallop Border!


Hope you had a great weekend are are ready for a brand new week! Thanks for stopping by today:)

February Sketch for You to Try!!


Hi there! Happy Super Sunday:) I'm here today to share a card I made with the new February Sketch for You to Try!

SFYTT9_Feb14

Such a fun layout! I hope you can play along with us this month!


I pulled out my favorite Sweet Thing again for this card, I just love it! The sentiment on the main image panel are from Sweet Thing. 


I embossed the gold heart border from Whole Lotta Hearts on vellum paper. I just love how that turned out. 


I stamped the polka dots from Whole Lotta Dots in white ink on the card base. I wanted it sort of distressed so I didn't press down all the way on the stamp. The "xoxo" flags are from Crushin and the heart and arrow dies as well as the scalloped love note die under the sentiment are all from the Love Notes die collection. So fun and easy to mix and match these sets!!

Now you know what to do, hop on over to the RC Blog for details on how to play, go make your card, and then go back and LINK IT UP! :)
