Love You Card with Doodles Paper Playground

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here today sharing a Love card with a spring twist. 

Sometimes you just need to let someone in your life how much you love them. Perhaps they are going through a tough time or just need to know they are loved.

I created this card using the Sparkle Blends: Cozy and Sparkle Blends: Spring Fling. I like to combine my blends from time to time.

Image may contain: food
This desaturated blend of eggplant, teal, champagne, lavender,
hunter green & red has the perfect cold weather vibe.
Mainly a base of matte & satin sequins, with just the right
touch of glitter and iridescence.

With a beautiful base of pastel pink, lavender, pink,
 light gold and blue metallic cup sequins, and 
a generous amount of tiny pastel heart confetti, 
Spring Fling is perfect for all your Spring (or wedding/engagement/new baby!)
 projects - especially in the light of the pretty touch of 
whimsy we're incorporated by the addition of 
pastel colored butterflies and faceted crystals. 

I created this shaker card with both blends. I stamped and colored the images in soft colors. I then die cut the word from white cardstock and used a bit of Distress Oxide in Shaded Lilac only on the bottom of the letters. I also punch three tiny white flowers from the remaining white cardstock and add some Nuvo Drops to the center of them. I also add some Nuvo the stamped flowers.

I did some finishing touches with some Wink of Stella in Clear and a bit of detail dots in Gelly Roll pen Metallic gold.

Supplies Used:
Word Die Cuts: MFT
 Stamps by Chloe -Fancy Foliage: Bird & Flowers
Punch: EK Success - Tiny Flower

Some Bunny Loves You with Doodles Paper Playground

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a cute Valentine's Day card.

I am using the beautiful Sparkle Blend - called January Garnet
This Birthstone collection is stunning.
Garnet is a vibrant combination
of gorgeous burgundy, bright red, magenta
purple, brown and pink in a wide variety of sizes
and shades sequins. This Blend shimmers and
changes as you look at it, Just like the facets of the Gem it's named after.

So, let's get started.

First I gathered the materials I needed for the card.

Supplies used:
Lawn Fawn - My Silly Valentine Stamp Set _ Sentiment and Hearts
Beautiful Moments Stamp Set by Angela Poole - Bunnies
Flourish Heart Die (was gifted to me - I don't know the brand)
Recollections Brand heavyweight cardstock in white & Pink
Acetate or Clear plastic (from packaging)
StazOn Ink - Jet Black
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir Markers
Gelly Roll Gel Pens - Black & White
Jot Brand Foam Adhesive Thick and Thin
Stotch 3M Tacky Glue
Tools: Scissors, Trimmer and Tim Holtz Stamp Platform

 I started by die cut the flourished heart into the white cardstock making sure not to remove it from the cardstock - if you do just return the pieces. I then adhered the acetate to the back of the die cut heart. I then turn it the panel over and trimmed a 1/4" all around the white panel. Next, I stamped the sentiment in the center of the heart. Set aside to dry.

I then stamped and colored the bunnies. I then fussy cut them out. 
Next, I added some details with my black and white gel pens.
Then, I flipped the white panel over and added some foam pads
making sure to place them really close together around 
the heart so that the sequins don't spill out.

Then, remove all the cover off the foam pads, Next, make a small pile of sequins on the pink cardstock. Then, gently place the white panel over it. Press down making sure that the sequins don't get trapped in between the foam pads.  For a final touch, I stamped some hearts on the white panel.
Now, the card is complete!

Thank you with Dies R Us

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with another using some of the amazing dies that are available at Dies R Us.

Let's get started.

First let gather our Supplies:

Now, die cut the leaves from both shades of green card stock. Die cut the two smaller flowers from the medium orange card stock and the large flower from both the dark orange card stock and the holographic paper.

Since the holographic paper is to thin I am backing it with the dark orange card stock. to give it more body. you can use the medium orange card stock for this but I like the finish look it gives with the matching card stock. 

I add a bit of adhesive on the card stock flower then slowly place the holographic paper on top of it.

Next, adhere the kraft card stock layer onto the brown card stock card base. The start adhering the leaves and flowers onto the card front. I  decided to do this on the bottom left hand side.

I start with the leaves. I adhere the dark green ones, then layer the medium green on top. Next, I adhere the medium orange flowers by the leaves just over lapping the leaves.

 I place the larger leaves in the corner and add the holographic flower just above them. I add foam adhesive behind the large flower for some dimension.


Now, adhere the die cut sentiment "Thank you" to the card front. Next, it's time for finishing touches - Light Gold sequins and jewels

I layered the sequins and jewels for the center of the flowers. I first adhered the sequins in place, then put a bit more glue in the center of the sequin and  placed the jewels. 

Now, the card is complete - quick and simple. I like to die cut flowers and small sentiments like this from a variety of card stock and have them on hand for quick cards.

Poetic Petals Card Set with A2Z Scrapbooking

As we are nearing the holiday season most of us will be invited to parties and functions. A hostess gift is always a nice thing to bring and give. Or perhaps you are already working on your gifts for the upcoming season.
A simple set of small cards perfect for quick thank you's or hello's is a nice and easy thing to have ready to give.
I created this set of card using the Poetic Petals Digital from Hero Arts Poetic Petals Digital from Hero Arts  which is perfect for these small cards.

image 0

These are the cards I created. I kept them simple to fit the current challenge over on A2Z Scrapbooking. 

First, I resized the flowers and printed them onto alcohol marker friendly paper. Then I colored them with my Spectrum Nior Markers (see below for colors).

Second, I cut 4 pieces of heavy weight white cardstock to 3" X 8". Score at 4". Then, I put a circle color from Distress Oxide ink. (you can use any ink here) that compliments the flowers. This will provide a landing spot for the flowers.

Third, Place foam adhesive behind the flowers and place onto the circle of color. Then, add some finishing touches with some Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops. Repeat for all cards. 

Now you have a full set of cards. Add some mini envelops and place them in a gift card box. You have the perfect hostess gift.
