Just a note

Just a Note3

Hello!  I've been busy making and sending some Happy Mail.........I have some great crafty friends to thank!  I knew just what I wanted to use to make a few cards!

I have been wanting to make a card like this ever since I got the Special Delivery Accents SugarCut.  I mean, who doesn't love rainbow envelopes?  I have lots of them and just looking at them makes me happy!  So I thought, let's re-create some rainbow envelopes!

Just a Note4

Using the Envelope die, I cut out 8 envelopes in rainbow cardstock colors.  I trimmed each "flap" off with my Tim Holtz guillotine trimmer, glued it back on, and added tiny white hearts to the centers (die cutting 8 white envelopes gave me the white hearts).  While I wanted to use the Stitched Rectangle from Birthday Journal Card, the envelopes didn't quite fit.  So, I trimmed down a white panel and added all my envelopes with foam adhesive.  This panel was layered onto a black scallop layer from Birthday Journal Card, leaving just a small black scallop border.  This ties in with the black sentiment strip that was white heat embossed with "Just a note" from Special Delivery.

Bold frames with Avery Elle

Double Pierced Rectangles

Hello!  I am sharing a card that can be seen over on the Avery Elle blog today using Scalloped Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments.
I knew I wanted to go BOLD using these Scalloped Pierced Rectangle dies.  They are a must have in your Avery Elle stash!  I used the smaller 2 frames and die cut both out of black cardstock.  I left in the black rectangle with the small one when I adhered it, so I could add the stamped "HELLO" panel done in white over the top for dimension.  (The HELLO stamp is from Canopy) The bloom, from Mimosas, was black heat embossed onto Bristol smooth watercolor paper.  To color, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  The ink just glides on and blends beautiful!  (gamechanger----the paper!!!!)

CardMaker Magazine and Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop


Hello!  Welcome to the CardMaker Magazine/Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop.  We are excited to collaborate with the CardMaker Magazine's DT for this fun event!  

You should have arrived from my good friend Heather Pulvirenti's blog.  If not, please start back over at the CardMaker Magazine blog for the full blog hop list.  Make sure to check out the bottom of my post on how to win a $35 Gift Certificate from Lil' Inker Designs!

No automatic alt text available.

Our theme is ANYTHING GOES!  This gave me the perfect opportunity to use a set that was released a while back but have fallen in love with again.....So Prickly.  I've paired it with the newly released Silly Stitched Squares Dies for some layers on my card.  One of the layers is from the coordinating So Prickly paper pack.

My cactus image was stamped with my FAVORITE inks from Fresh Ink by Impress Cards and Crafts.  (what's even better, they are having a local sale and later this weekend an on-line sale-----not to enable or anything!)  I stamped the cactus in the main color and then added shading with a darker/different color using my Misti.  My cactus was hand trimmed and added with foam adhesive.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a thin strip of black cardstock, ends trimmed into a banner, and adhered with foam adhesive.


There is a chance to win a $35 gift certificate to Lil' Inker Designs by leaving comments over on the LID blog........HERE.  Your next stop is Kat Benjamin's blog.

Fruit Stand and Avery Elle

Fruit Stand3

Hello!  I am sharing a card that can be seen over on the Avery Elle blog today using Fruit Stand.
Fruit Stand is a perfect set for creating an adorable scene for spring or summer.  I know I have many memories of visiting fruit/vegetable stands with my mom as a kid!  I paired the cute images from Fruit Stand with the Picket Fence Elle-ments.

Happy Easter with Pretty Pink Posh


Happy Easter!  I have had this card made for a while just waiting to share it today.  Who doesn't love a cute shaker card??  

I knew I had to use this adorable kiddo all dressed up in the bunny costume from Easter Friends!  I colored my images (bunny, basket, and eggs) all with Copics and cut them out with coordinating dies.  I then set work to make my shaker.  


After adhering some plaid paper over a white panel, I used a standard circle die to make the shaker opening in the panel.  Using the Scallop Circle Dies, I created a white frame for my shaker.  I saved the purple circle I cut out to be used to layer along with a scrap of white polka dot vellum (this created my background for the shaker).  To fill the shaker, I added the colored/die cut eggs along with seed beads in Lilac, Petunia, and Hydrangea from Pretty Pink Posh.  

I added my images with foam adhesive and a hand cut vellum banner with the sentiment stamped in StazOn black ink.


Thank you so much for sharing a part of your holiday with me!

Happy Easter!!!  I am sharing a card using the current SFYTT (Sketch For You to Try) over at the Reverse Confetti blog.  Check out the SFYTT post......HERE for all the details!

Since today is Easter, I thought it only fitting to use the bunny image from More Than Jellybeans as my focal point of the sketch.  I used a retiring Confetti Cut, Tassel, as the grass and as part of the sketch!  I've layered my image onto a die cut Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cut.  To tie the card together, I layered a piece of polka dot paper from True Love onto a piece of Dark Roast Cardstock.


Now the best part is.......there is always a winner every month!  Here are the details:

The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of each month.
