Happy Friday, kids! I made the quickest card in my history of cardmaking this morning…
die cut, sponge, stamp, die cut…DONE.
I used a Whisper White Notecard so I did not even have to score….hahaha.
I simply snipped off two little parts off the die cut, and it is the perfect size.
So, the die can be used for both A2 cards and notecads. Nice.
I wanted to play around with the NEW Springtime Impressions die
and see how it looked sponged with my daubers..so easy.
So easy I thought why not share my first attempt with all of you today?
I jazzed it up with some of the NEW Mint Macaron Faceted Dots
and used a NEW die from the Stitched Labels Framelits:)
That is the NEW Highland Heather ink- to me a very nice purple- the cardstock is a perfect match.
The NEW Gorgeous Grape is a lovely darker purple as well. So excited to have these new colors as “good” purple is hard to find! After typing purple a few times, I am thinking it is a funny word- made me giggle:)
Have a great weekend-
I am planning on playing with my new goodies to have fun stuff for my June luncheon in Pittsburgh!
Love my stamping gals so much- can’t wait to see them again!!!
Had fun with my Florida gang last night! How blessed I am!
It’s been a crazy few weeks traveling but I finally got to finish up my Make and Take from April 7!
Usually, I don’t finish mine thinking I will change it up some how when I get home.
This time, I just tweaked it a teensy bit so it looks a tad different from some on Pinterest:)
I used the NEW IN COLOR Grapefruit Grove Cardstock and ink on the leaves.
It is so bright and fresh!
I added some NEW Tranquil Tide Baker’s Twine, a few pearls from the NEW Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, and a copper metallic leaf from the NEW Leaves Trinkets.
Big, Bold, and Bright… don’t you think? I was in that kind of mood this week!
I am going to share it with the gang over at Stamp Ink Paper #147 for the Color It Challenge this week.
I used my Stampin’ Blends to color this butterfly- so fun to smoothly glide on the alcohol color:)
A few rhinestones to bling it up…or maybe cover a stray black smudge?
I even jazzed up the inside!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Use the Hostess Code at the top of the page to take advantage of the BONUS GIFT for April… a 1/2 pack of Picture Perfect Party DSP- (that’s 24 sheets) and a card from me with a $30 order:)
I am so excited to show you this card today using
the SU Apron of Love and Bottles and Bubbles Bundles.
It just makes me happy! I used the sentiments from SU Guy Greetings.
I saw this card done by Handmade by Irene with a grill so I got pinspired to make my own!
I tried e-ver-y-thing possible to make that bottom part of the grill that keeps the tripod together. Everything looked goofy- the small oval punch, small circles, small ovals…it was just driving me crazy! In the end, the right piece was right in front of my nose! I just die cut the rolling pin, cut it, and pushed it together!
I used the 1-1/2″ circle punch to make the upper part of the grill.
I just keep thinking it looks like Pac Man…lol.
I did the inside two different ways…
The grass die comes from the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits,
it’s a great way to finish of the inside of the card, don’t you think?
I have a “Peek Through the Middle” Fun Fold card
