When I saw this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch online I knew exactly what I wanted to use to make this card!!!! And it turned out even better in real life than what I pictured in my head!! Love it when that happens!!

To make this card I started off running a piece of white cardstock through my bigshot using the PTI snowflake impression plate. After I did that I knew that I wanted to bump it up on another piece of plain cardstock so I trimmed it down!! I then die cut the square snowflake from Simon Says Stamp out of glitter card stock. I wasn't to sure what I should stamp the sentiment on…I first tried vellum but then decided to keep it clean and simple with the white across….stamped the Merry Christmas on there then added it to the card front. Same with the square die cut. After those were all in place I pulled out my PPP sequins and placed them on the card!!! And there you have it! Pretty straight forward!! Just love this sketch tho, so many opportunities with it!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

you got this!!

I was going through different blogs this morning and came across the CASE Study Challenge blog. Ive seen the wonderful cards from this blog before but was always intimidated by it for whatever reason. Really after thinking about it, isn't this how us card makers make cards?? We see other cards and make our own version of it?? Well thats what I did today!! I had feathers on the brain so I ran with it!!!

I recently got these new feather dies and wanted to put them to use!! So to start I had actually die cut both sizes of the feathers out of scrap white paper and vellum, then decided that I wanted to die cut it out of the card front and do so inlaying. I angled it a little cause I wanted the feathers to look like they were tied. I thought the bigger white feather needed to be a little more poppy so I pulled out my perfect pearls and painted it. I did the same with the vellum feather as well!! I then added my sentiment with white embossing powder, then set the other feathers down on top once I had tied them together. Thought it needed a little something else and so I drew on the stitched markings. Not a norm for me but added that little detail I felt was missing. And of course some sequins!!! 

I rally like how it turned out and today for the first time wasn't initiated by this challenge!! Hope you all take the time to check it out!!

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday to you!!! Here is a card I made using multiple die cut words to give it that dimension!! I saw this technique from the one and only Jennifer McGuire (click here for video tutorial)…thought it might be to much work but just loved how it look!! And not gonna lie, was a tiny bit of work...don't know if it is a technique I will do often...but wow I love it!

So that is my card for today! Make sure to check out Jennifers video (she does a much better job of explaining then I ever could)...

kick ass birthday!

Hey everyone!! Heres a super quick and easy card I put together using Wplus9 So 80s set!! This set is fun to use, makes clean and simple masculine cards! 

For this card I did a bit of fussy cutting of the "kick ass" and "how your day is" adhered them after I had stamped the back ground image! Cut the paper down to make sure I had the grey side and that is all! Pretty straight forward card!! I love how it turned out!!

Thanks for stopping by!

whole lotta happy

This card I put together for the Stamptember blog hop Wednesday Challenge! I decided to go with a whole lotta happy kind of card for the challenge just cause thats what I think of when I think of Stamptember!

This card was pretty easy to put together!! I did a bit of masking with the balloons to make them into that cluster…stamped the strings, clear heat embossed over the happy a few times (got to say thats my fav technique these days! Just love how it turns out). Adhered that then added the words around it. Pretty simple card to to!!

Happy Stamptember to you all!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

retro birthday

Good Morning!! Its been a while since my last post and the sun was finally shining today so it was a good time to take some photos of a few of my latest creations. Todays card is taking you back old school!! Between the colours or even the layout (for me anyway…was a classic when I was first starting out)…

For this card I really had no idea where it was going. I was crafting with my friend Natasha and she was using these colours for a different card….I figured they were out on the table I should use them too!!! After I had the border all stamped I needed a fun image to go with the look! I pulled out this new Wplus9 set and smiled!!!! Love its retro yet fall look!!!

Hope you enjoy! And thanks so much for stopping by!!
