Magical Birthday


Here is my second card made for the Global Design Project.    I used my Dylusions paint backgrounds I made with Rose Quartz, Squeezed Orange, Lemon Zest, Mushy Peas and Perwinkle Blue.   I die cut the cloud from the Rainbow Builder framelits.   The unicorn and sentiment come from a Love Nicole stamp set.     A strip of Botanical Butterfly designer series paper and a button with baker's twine complete my card. 

Rainbow Butterflies

So as soon as I saw this week's Global Design Project theme I was so all over it.   I loved the rainbow background.     I loved all the projects the design team made.      I decided to pull out my Dylusions Paints to make the watercolor background.     I used Rose Quartz, Squeezed Orange, Lemon Zest, Mushy Peas and Perwinkle Blue.    I made a few sheets of the paper so I have them for future projects.       For my first card, I die cut the Butterfly Beauty framelits.    I put a strip of retired American Crafts designer series paper.    I heat embossed the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.    Sequins were added as a finishing touch.   

Hip Hip Hooray

My amazing niece just made the honor roll and here is a card I made to send to her.    I started with stamping, coloring and fussy cutting the panda from Art Impressions.    The background was sponged with Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass.     The hooray was stamped from the Letter It Celebration stamp set and fussy cut.    The hip hip is also from the same set but it was heat embossed and punched out.    The little stars come from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.    The finishing touch was rhinestones and strip of paper from the Heidi Swapp Memory Planner paper pack. 

Love Hearts

So I got these fun hearts at my Dylusions workshop I attended last September.    They are part of a set called In Betweenies.   How fun are they.    I stamped them in Flirty Flamingo.    I paired them up with the Hampton Art sentiment.     A little heart was punched and some baker's twine was added for a finishing touch.  

This was just perfect for the Inspired By Challenge.    The dangling hearts in the background almost match the ones in my card. 

Total Crush

Here is another fun card made with the Simple Stories Sunshine & Happiness paper pack.     You really need to take a minute and really look at the small Sn@p paper stacks.    You never know what you have and it is fun to mix and match them.    If I didn't I would have never put Daffodil Delight, Pink Passion and Soft Sky together and guess what they totally work and wow love the color scheme.   How great is the sentiment Total Crush.    So many times we are so quick to put love on a Valentine's Day card, but for some people putting the word Love is a big deal.   It make take months or years before those words are spoken.   So I love Total Crush.    I stole the Kisses from Salty Toes and Sandy Kisses.    So as you see take the time and have fun.    Don't let those little extras not go to use.    If you don't play you will never know what fun creations you have hidden in your paper packs. 

The heart was punched out and kisses was stapled to a strip of Fun Stamper's Journey Watermelon Fusion.

The Inspired By challenge inspired me with all the fun and bright colors and the TGIF challenge helped shape my card with all the fun pieces I found in the Simple Stories paper pack. 

High Five

So after all the Fall, Christmas, Winter and Valentine's Day cards it is nice to pull out some of designer series paper and have fun with some bright colors.    I saw these great Sn@p die cuts High Five and Shine in the Simple Stories Sunshine & Happiness paper pack and they were just perfect to put on a card.    I love the rainbow paper in this paper pack.   I have a small strip left and I can tell you right now, I am going to be hoarding it.   The finishing touch was a button was a button with some baker's twine. 



So Valentine's Day is around the corner.     I wanted to make a few cards and gift tags to give to little ones and what better than to use the very cute cupcakes from the Really Hungry stamp set from The Project Bin.     Both cards and tags make me think of Hello Kitty for some reason.   The cupcakes were stamped fussy cut and colored in my Stampin' Blends.   The backgrounds I sponged with some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide.    The sentiment was die cut from the Momenta Words.    The strips of designer series paper comes from the Heidi Swapp Hello Today.   Some punched hearts, rhinestones add a little extra.   For the card, the finishing touch was the baker's twine.    For the tag I made a bow with the retired bow builder punch.    The pink card stock comes from Fun Stamper's Journey Watermelon Fusion. 

The colors were totally inspired by the bright and amazing colors in the Inspired By challenge and TGIF challenge helped me in shaping my tag.   Thank you!!! 

Love You

So I was hoping to add this month's Scrapbooking Global's Blog Hop, but it looks like there was a lot of interest and all the spots in the blog hop filled up pretty quickly this month.    I try not to sign up until I make time to make the page.     

Here is my page made with the beautiful Butterfly Beauty Framelits.   I fussy cut the butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly designer series paper.     The title was die cut from the Expression Thinlits and the Celebrate You thinlits.      The sentiment comes from Part of Your Story stamp set.    Retired buttons complete the page. 

Magical Memories

I am happy to say I got another Disney page done.   All my scrapbook buying of Disney supplies is slowly being put to use.    Here are the four kids in the Magic Kingdom this past December.   I used pieces of the Simple Stories Say Cheese III Sn@p! Pack, Say Cheese II Paper Kit.    I love the die cuts and the small images in the Sn@p Pack, they are the perfect size to add a little something to your scrapbook pages.    I even fussy cut the Magical memories from one of the packs.    I love when everything coordinates it makes putting scrapbook pages together so easy and quick.

So one of the latest stamp sets to make into my collection is the Here Comes the Sun.   It is a hostess set from the Occasions Mini.   Late last night it came to me to pair up the sentiment with my Waterfront stamp set.    I have to say you can't knock it when inspiration hits you near the crack of midnight, sometimes it surprises you.    I added some elements from the High Tide stamp set as well, the birds in the sky and the water ripples.    The water ripples were the perfect addition, they gave the water a little more definition and it really made the card.   

The mountains were stamped in Crumb Cake.   The grass field was in Pear Pizzazz.   The trees stamped in Shaded Spruce.    The sun was stamped in Hello Honey.    The water was stamped in Soft Sky and Balmy Blue.   

The finishing touch was a strip of black card stock on the bottom.     Every time I pull out the Waterfront stamp set, it makes me smile.    The images in the set really do make your water front scene come alive.      Now that I know to add elements from the High Tide stamp set, you are sure to see more scenery cards in the future. 

Love Songs

When I saw this week's Fusion card challenge with the penguins I knew I was going to have to create a valentine's day card with the Mama Elephant Love Quotes stamp set.    The penguins and valentine's day, they were just a must.     Not to mention all the fabulous sentiments in this stamp set.    My favorite of all is And Suddenly all the love songs were about you.    I am a music girl.    Songs take me back to another place, a memory, a feeling.   I am transported by the words and remember everything.      

This weeks' Paper Craft Crew sketch of the week helped me in making my penguin valentine.   I started with my Stitched Shape oval die cut and the sentiment in the center.    Next came the penguins stamped and fussy cut.   The heart was die cut.     The background was made with my aqua painter and the Blushing Bride ink refill on watercolor paper.    The finishing touches were stamped hearts, a strip of Botanical Butterfly designer series paper and some baker's twine. 

Love Emoji

So I needed to make a few tags to put on my Valentine's Day gifts.   What better to put on the tags than emoji's for nieces and nephews.     I made the emoji's with my We R Memory Keepers emoji punch board.    The LVE was stamped with the Metro Type Alphabet stamp set.     The sentiment comes from the Simon Says Stamp You & Me stamp set.    I cut the frame with my Stitched Rectangle die cuts.      The tags I layered them on top of the Stacked with Love designer series paper.   The rounded tag top was made by using a circle punch and tracing it and then cutting it out.

Since I had a few extra Love rectangles made, I decided to make cards using the Freshly Made Sketch of the week for inspiration.     The striped paper comes from the Botanical Butterfly designer series paper. 

Pizza Love

So one more card made with The Gratest stamp set from The Project Bin.    I just couldn't resist all these fun puns.    No time like the present to create with Valentine's Day only a few days away.     Super easy card, a few strips of designer series paper, a pizza colored in with my Stampin' Blends.    The designer series paper comes from TPC Studio and Recollections Cheeky Modern Pop.    The finishing touch was the baker's twine and enamel dot. 

Flippin' Amazing

Here is my second card made with The Project Bin's The Gratest.    Spatulas and grilling made me think of the Apron Builder framelits.     They were just perfect for these sentiments, You're flippin' amazing and I flippin' love you.     The spatula was stamped, colored with Stampin' Blends and fussy cut.     The apron die cut and assembled.   The sentiments heat embossed.   Some hearts were punched.  Designers series paper comes from TPC Studio and Stampin' Up! Pop of Color.    The finishing touch was the button with baker's twine.     

Just the perfect Valentine for the grilling man in your life.

Denise has completely hit it out of the park with the lastest release from The Project Bin called The Gratest!!     There is so many fun pun stamps and coordinating sentiments.    Here is the first card using a play on Facebook likes!!!   How fabulous is this!    I die cut the cell phone, My Favorite Things Smart Phone.    The image was stamped and colored in.    The sentiments heat embossed.    Strips of designer series paper from TPC Studio and Stampin' Up!  Stacked with Love and enamel hearts complete the project.
