Purple Heart Card



Hello friends.  I'd like to share my heart card created using the Enjoying Outdoors collection from Maja Design and Spellbinders Sew Sweet Valentine by Tammy Tutterow .

I absolutely love the warm purples in this collection.  These are the papers I used from the Enjoying Outdoors collection:
Singing in the Rain (A and B sides of paper)
There is No Bad Weather

I have to smile because the name of one of the sheets of paper I used is called "There is No Bad Weather".  

That is soooooooooo true when you are sitting at your crafting table and making some paper projects.  There just is no bad weather - it's always a perfect time to scrap.  And even better when you are playing with Maja papers. 


These are just gorgeous colors and they make me happy.  This collection is a MUST for anyone who loves purple.  This is sure to make you scrap-happy. 

 I embellished my card with die cuts from Spellbinders - Sew Sweet Valentine Die by Tammy Tutterow.  I wove hemp twine through the holes in the heart die to add more natural elements to the card. 


The Spellbinders die I used is the Sew Sweet Valentine by Tammy Tutterow 
is fun,  a bit quirky as it sits slightly off center and absolutely sweet ( as the name, Sew Sweet implies). The off-centered nested hearts give the die collection such charm.  

  You can see other examples of projects/cards using this die  Part 1 here.  



Here is one last look at the completed card.  Ahhh those colors!

Thanks for making a stop here today.  I value your time.

Mother's Day Card -Dies, Flowers and Lace

I'd like to share a card I made for my mother to celebrate Mother's Day.  

I used the gorgeous soft collection from Maja Design, called Sofiero.  
The beautiful rose florals in this collection remind me of the rose garden my mother had in our front yard.  

These are the papers I used from the Sofiero collection: 
Strolling Down the Rose Path
The Elegant Winehouse
Romantic Picnic in the Park

The embellishing die is from Spellbinders'  Elegant 3D Vignettes collection by Becca Feeken  called Spellbinders Tiara Rondelle .   The die was backed by a piece of floral lace to add an extra touch of femininity. 


My embellishments are a combination of flowers from Prima and a flair button from Creative Embellishments.   
The Flair button is very pretty and versatile. It's part of the Feb 14th Flair collection at Creative Embellishments.

Happy Birthday Balloon Card with DIY Tutorial



Happy Birthday Dies and Stamps
I have an assortment of Spellbinders dies that I used from  the  Elegant 3D Vignettes collection by Becca Feeken .

This birthday card features two different Stamp/die products from the Spellbinders collection:
The background of this card was created using the "Happy" stamp that came with the 

I used Watercolor Paper misted with water and stamped with a variety of Distress Inks ( Weathered Wood Peacock FeathersTwisted Citron)  to create a cool watery flowing look.  

I have a super quick video (1 minute long - yeah I mean quick!) showing how I created my watery background.





In order to create a little dimension with the balloons, I added a layer of foam to some of the details.   This was done by die cutting thin fun foam I bought at a craft store. 



 You can see another card made using the same stamping method to create a the watercolor background right here

Amazing Embellishments for Fabulous Birthday Cards


 I like keeping my supply of birthday cards well stocked because I enjoy giving the cards but I'm not so good about keeping an organized list of upcoming family birthdays.  That means I have to scramble to make a card.  Well, that's just not practical.  I'd prefer to be at least prepared with the cards. 

Creative Embellishments has the perfect chipboard pieces for birthdays and any other occasion you can imagine.  

My first card has a bit of a vintage vibe.  The chipboard pieces used on this card are shown below. 
Creative Embellishments -Grapevine Heart Wreath ( scroll down to see my sizing note )
Creative Embellishments - Poinsettia Set (I used the twigs/greens on my card)

I am in nutty love with the Grapevine Heart Wreath.  While I just love heart shapes in general, this NEW design is gorgeous and delicate and large enough for a frame on a layout.  I lightly inked this heart using Distress ink in Vintage Photo.  

I used the twigs/greens from the Poinsettia Set as filler in my floral cluster.  They have also been inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink. 

Sizing Note for the Grapevine Heart Wreath
This heart comes in an original size of 6.5"w x 6"h.  
Card makers may need to order a custom size to be cut.  That's super easy!  As you are paying for your order, just add a note into the comments section of the order and Nicolle will be happy to accommodate.  

Don't let the size discourage you from ordering this totally divine piece. 

The stamped background and Birthday sentiment tag was created using the Spellbinders Oh Happy Day -Elegant 3D Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken  and a variety of Distress Inks stamped onto watercolor paper misted lightly with water.  

Below is an image of the background before adding embellishments.  
I have a super quick (1 minute) video showing how I created the watercolor stamped background using Spellbinders Oh Happy Day stamp/die set.
Here is the link for the card featured in the video.  




Moving on to my second birthday card - the cupcake card.  
Featuring the most adorable chipboard cupcakes you will ever see!

I used the following chipboard pieces on this card and painted them with acrylic paints.  


See what I mean about the darling cupcake chippies?  So many possibilities and you get 6 cupcakes in a set.  How adorable would these look on the front of a child's birthday invitation?  


 Thanks for sharing a piece of your day with me.
