WCMD Honorable Mention at PCS Magazine! Please VOTE!

I am excited to share today's card with you! A few weeks ago, Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine announced their "Honorable Mentions" for the World Card Making Day Contest! I was super excited to see my name listed for the 'Love' catergory!
 
Starting today, PCS Magazine is holding a contest for the 'Honorable Mentions' from the WCMD contest. Stop over HERE to find out more about the contest and how to vote for my card! I appreciate all your help!!!
 
 
I hope you like it as much as I had fun making it!
 

This card uses the 'inlay' technique with a variety of dies. To start the card I used the polaroid die from Echo Park to cut out of the back layer of the card. Using the same die, I cut the shape out of another patterned paper and slide into the empty space on the blue backing. The frame showcased the white space on the card base, so I decided to leave that empty. The wooden accents (Studio Calico) are glued to the card base. The simple sentiment (Sweet Stamp Shop) is stamped onto the frame. (It is hard to see in the picture, but I colored and cover the heart with Glossy Accents). To finish the card, I stamped the card sentiment (Sweet Stamp Shop) onto a banner diecut and attached to the card on a foam dot. I wrapped some red Americna Crafts ribbon underneath the banner.
 
Please stop on over to the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking blog to vote!
Hopefully for my card...hint, hint :)

Isn't Watercoloring FUN!!!???

So a few weeks ago, I submitted a handful or so of cards to a World Cardmaking Day Contest. Sadly, I didn't win! (However, one of my cards was chosen as an Honorable Mention!) But the good news... I can start showing some of the cards!

The card below was one of my favorite that I sent in!


Who doesn't love messing around with watercolors?! I love how it is perfectly OK to make a mistake and make it look like it was on purpose! The first step was to stamp and emboss the image (Delicate Blooms by Hero Arts) in white. Once the image was dry, it was time to watercolor!

I added a simple sentiment (from the Red & Goldie stamp set by Avery Elle) stamped in black. The last step was to create the card mat and attach to the card base!

Thank you for stopping by today! Check back soon for my of my WCMD creations! Including my 'Honorable Mention'!

CAS Watercolor card

Hello, Butterfly Reflections, Ink friends! I am excited to be filling in today on the BRI blog!
 
Today's project is showcasing some of the exclusive stamps from Butterfly Reflections, Ink! For my project, I used the Over the Rainbow stamp set.
 
 
So I found some pearlescent watercolors and fell in love with the additional sparkle it added to the projects! I was dying to use one to make a night sky. To start, I stamped the images and embossed them as well. Once the embossing had time to dry, I painted the night with silver metallic paint. I thought the card needed a little something extra, so I stamped the red heart.
 
What a very simple and so so easy to create!

DCWV Memory Tray

Happy Hump Day everyone!!!!

I bought this memory tray frame a few months and finally got around to using it!  I loved the colors in the DCWV's Honey Chic Stack paper pad and knew right away what picture I wanted to use! Earlier this year my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary. To make the day more special, we decided to renew our wedding vows with our kids in attendance. It was truly a wonderful day and deserved a wonderful crafting project!


I love how simple this frames can be to complete! Having a paper pad makes it so easy to pair up prints and patterns!  The photo layout is create with two prints/patterns under the photo. Then I fussy-cut the floral design from another print in the same paper pad. The floral cutout is placed over the corner of the photo. The reminder parts of the frame are just as easy! The paper flowers are created using a circle punch. Foam letter stickers make an easy title/sentiment of the layout.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope to see you back again!
