Wow.... have we got a challenge for you this week! el color de amor! The colors of love!

The other dies are Simon Says Stamp Stacked Hearts, and Fancy Frames from Craftin Desert Divas.
I used a punch for the watercolored hearts in Red! Along with Foiled Vellum Stack from DCWV.
My embellishments are: Sequins Craftin Desert Divas and Sprinkles from Doodlebug!
Cardstock is Simon Says Stamp 120#white and Black.

 Until next time!

PCC178 A Sketch Challenge!

Hello, I'm back at Paper Craft Crew! 
I've been cutting back on the number of challenges I am able to do because of school! 
Pam has been wonderful about my availability!

For today.... I gotta say this was a tough sketch, I'd just finished my course work, and was unable to get to it.... well I was messing around with some of the cuts I'd done with my Scan N Cut, a while back, and found this adore... and thought that would awesome gold, or black.... as you can see I went with Gold, I used the sprayer from the Heidi Swapp color shine! Yep the sprayer end, and not the applicator like I do for my splatter work.  

I used some washi that I had laying around, the gold heart was from Stampin' Up! and the XO is from Doodlebug.  The woodgrain paper is from Simon Says Stamp.
Next is the hearts, I cut the red one with a die and the white corrugate from Little B, with an old punch.  I added some thread and a few mini staples to complete my card!  You can see a close up below!

Well, I hope you liked my card!

Until next time

Sending Love - Ombre Challenge

I also used the Sending, and Stacked Hearts by Simon Says Stamp

CDD Shaped Cards

Hey everyone, stayed up a bit too late to finish this project!

I did a heart shaped shaker box!  I really wish I hadn't eaten all the chocolate kisses, cause this would have been perfect.  I started by cutting some heart (4) one white, and 3 craft cardstock.  I added tons of  Jute twine on the outside. I added some goodies that I had sitting on my desk, and of course this uber cute birdie from Craftin Desert Diva's called Little Birdie! I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color him in!

I hope you've like my project, I don't do they that often!

Until next time

CYCI#102 A Sketch Challenge

Hey this week at Can You Case It? I've got a new sketch and a wonderful CAS card for you!

I went simple but elegant on this card! I started by cutting out my new die from Simon Says Stamp called Heart of Roses. Then I added layers of color using Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Pinks, Gold, and Silver for a vintage look.  I went through my paper pads and decided on Fancy that from My Minds Eye... and a tag from Jen Hadfield. My card base is 120# white cardstock from Simon as well.   I love the way it looks pulled all together! Easy peasy card with lots of wow! 

Join us at CYCI each week for a wonderful challenge!

Until next time

Hearts and Hugs

Got my new stuff from Simon Says Stamp
For the custom background, I used my splatter technique and lots of pink ink!  
I love to create my own paper using ink refills and metallics like Heidi has, it gives me pleasure to work on cards in between my class assignments... sadly I've been making cards so late at night I haven't been sharing many of them... but I wanted to make sure I shared the Hearts and Hugs one today! I think we all need a little reminder that we are loved...
Here's what I used
Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine!
Craftin Desert Divas Fancy Frames Die

I really love how this turned out! I hope you do too!
Until next time
