Winner and Let's Shell-Ebrate

 
 Got a few new things this week
the set of the new mini
with
Cracked Pistachio,
Abandoned Coral,
Mermaid Lagoon, and
Fossilized Amber

Now I have to admit this background was a total
accident I had a little bit of leftover ink on my
mat and just laid a piece of water color paper over
it to use it up didn't think it would be much of
anything but I loved the way it ended up

also got
Party Posse from
Paper Smooches
have a few cards in the works using this set
added a mini pom pom to the party hat
and a few drops of glossy accents
glossy accents on the shell, hat,
and toenails.
think this card would be great
for a guy or a girl and could
be use for a variety of occasions 
  
winner of the Saturday July 18, 2015

With a little help from my friend Dual Stencil Post

 
Super excited today
getting a little help from one
of my very good bloggy friends
Georgiana
from
we've recently just got
the stenciling bug
Here are my two cards
 
 I used the stencil and
Tim Holtz distressed inks
to make this rainbow background
ripe raspberry, spiced marmalade
mustard seed, mowed lawn,
 salty ocean and seedless preserves
this is based on a design I saw on pinterest from
Jennifer McGuire
 
 
for the sentiment I used
 Stitched Borders I Dies
sentiment is from
 a retired Papertrey Ink set
Botanical Silhouettes
I popped this up with some fun foam
added a little bling a thin black mat
on an A2 card.
 
Stencils from Prima mask
sublime mix #4
Prima - Stencils Mask Set - Sublime Screens - Mix 4
I used the second and third  
but anyone you have in your stash
would look just as wonderful
 
Have a wonderful crafty week.

Winner and Happy Birthday

this is the birthday card
 I gave my friend yesterday
Now I have to say right off the bat I completely lift
this card from
I did change it slightly I used black paper and clear
embossing powder on the dies and
the sentiment is from
to make this card I started with
a sheet of Tim Holtz watercolor paper
used stormy ocean on the top left,
center crushed olive, and bottom left
ripe raspberry
the secret to this card is
from
 
 
I cut this leaf and top left flower
out of black card stock
inked with versa mark
and clear glitter embossing powder
next thanking the same dies I cut them
out of some white card stock
this piece is attached to
a piece of acetate
this creates a base to attach
the die cuts
attached a black mat then
to an A2 white card base
loved the design so much
made a second card with
some sequins and a bow...
 
Winner of the Saturday July 4th
show it off Saturday Linky Party
 
This is a beautiful watercolor background
for these adorable bugs.  The white die cuts
behind the bugs really makes them pop.
The embossed tag is the perfect place
for the sentiment. The inside of the card
is just as pretty.
