Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a CAS card.

This month we're using a Mood Board to inspire us

I am using the


I simply printed the digital download and cut the dragonfly I wanted to work with from the rest. Colored it in with some Arteza Real Brush Markers for a soft watercolor effect.  Then, Fussy cut it. Next, I die cut the word LOVE twice - once from plain white cardstock one once from Rinea Ruby Glossy Foil Paper. Stack and glued the layers to create a chipboard word. I stamped the sentiment You More on white cardstock and cut it into a thin strip. I adhered all the elements on to card front panel which measures 4" X 5-1/4" I made from tone on tone pink pattern paper and medium gray cardstock for a nice mat. I then stamped a few hearts for a dragonfly trail. Finished it all off with some small gray and pink sequins and a bit of Wink of Stella on the wings.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Celebrating Mardi Gras with Rinea Foil Paper

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a fun mask for Mardi Gras.
Featuring So Suzy Stamps Tulip Single Stamp. This month we're collaborating with So Suzy Stamps to create some inspiring projects for you.
Materials Used:
Arteza Watercolor Brush Markers
Ranger Clear Embossing Powder
Tsukinneko Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock
Mask & Trim Dollar Tree 
Jewels: Pretty Pink Posh
Aleene's Tacky Glue
Heat Tool & Scissors
Let's get started!
I stamped the image 3x with versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. (this is optional) onto Bristol smooth cardstock. I colored the images and trimmed them out once dry. 
I then traced the mask onto some copy paper and used it as a pattern to cut the Rinea Violet Starstruck foil paper. Next, I covered the mask with tacky glue and pressed the Violet Starstruck foil paper onto it. I trimmed away any extra paper - making sure that my edges were neat. I then adhered the colored Tulip images to the center and either side of the eye area of the mask. Next, I adhered some trim to the otter edge of the mask. 
For finishing touches, I adhered some jewel to the corners and around the eyes of the mask.

Stuck On You with Doodles Paper Playground

Hello Crafty Friends - I am  here with a puny card.

I know that we can always tell those we care about how 
we feel about them throughout the year. We can even do it in a puny way. 

I created this using the New Released Mardi Gras Sparkle Blend. 

A bright, joyous combination of purple, green and gold sequins in finishes ranging from 
matte to holographic, speckled with stars, golden confetti and sliced Fimo feathers 
in coordinating shades. This blend will be useful far beyond its namesake.

I stamped the cacti with Versafine Onyx Black onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored the images with Arteza Real Brush Markers. I finished them off with a bit of Gellyroll Gold Gel Pen. 

Thank you for stopping by the blog today!

Spring Inspired Flowering Lattice Card with Dies R Us

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a lovely Lattice card.

This card has an open front panel - However, you can place a colored cardstock 
behind the lattice for a different look.

To create this card you will need an A2 card base and a piece of cardstock measure 4-1/4" X 5-1/2".
On the extra panel die cut the lattice.  

Next, on the card base measure a 1/8"  from the score of the card. 
I did a light pencil line for you to see. 

Now, trim off the card base front panel.

Next, adhere the lattice to card base.

Your card should look like this - with a see through front panel. 

Next, die cut several flowers and leaves.

I like to do what I call a dry run for placement of the flowers and leave so I get a general idea if I like the look of where everything will be.

Once, I like the placement. I adhere the flowers and leaves in place.
Next, I add a bit of Nuvo Drops to the centers of the flowers. **Note - you can add Liquid Pearls, Stickles or any other embellishment you would like to the centers.

Now, the card is complete. You can add a sentiment if you would like. 
I like having blank cards like this in my stash. 
This way I can use them for Birthdays, Mother's Day, 
Easter or Just thinking of you cards.

I hope you give this card a try.

Supplies Used:




Recollections Brand:
White, Pink, Purple, Blue, Yellow & Green

Hero Arts Love Stamp N Cut

For this card, I just used the die from the Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Love DC175 Set.

I die cut the word love 5 times from colored cardstock to match the mood board and 4 times from white cardstock. 

I then stacked the 4 white cardstock love dies adhering them to one another. Finally, topping the white stack white the Red Glitter cardstock love die cut.

I cut a piece of white card stock to 8" x*1/2". I then scored at 4" from top to bottom. This will be a long card.

I then adhered the die cuts to the front of the card. I started with the light gray and worked my way down to the dark gray. Making sure to place the Glitter Red in the center of the card.

 Then, I gathered some ink I used Distress Oxide in Tattered Rose, Worn Lip Stick and Hickory Smoke to stamp some of the hearts on the card.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock trimmed it into a small strip popped it up with foam tape and placed above the red love.

The card is now complete.

Just Because Card with Doodles Paper Playground

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a simple card to say Just Because to any friend or family member that may need a bit of a pick me up.

I used the soft Spring Fling Sparkle Blend for this card. 
With a beautiful base of pastel pink, lavender, green, light gold & blue, metallic cup sequins and a generous amount of tiny pastel heart confetti, Spring Fling is perfect for all of your spring projects; but we also added a touch of whimsy with pastel colored butterflies and beautiful faceted crystals. 

Now, not every card has to be a shaker. I love shaker cards but, sometimes you just need a quick card to send out to brighten up someone's day.

I used a card kit I had in my stash for a bit along with the
Spring Fling Sparkle Blend of Wink of Stella on the roses
I completed this card.

Enlarged to show the Spring Fling Sparkle Blend  and wink of Stella.
