Avery Elle / Peaceful Pines

Hello!  I'm here with a very clean and simple card using some heat embossing with Peaceful Pines from Avery Elle.

Clean and simple does not have to mean plain.  I've used the main pine image and heat embossed it with Rich Gold Embossing Powder and the berries in a red embossing powder.  This ramps things up with lots of shine!  

Peaceful Pines

This set can be used either with the dies or without. The main image was die cut along with the word Peace, from Peaceful Pines Elle-ments, out of thick red glitter cardstock and adhered it in the space on the stamped image. A supporting sentiment from Sending Peace was stamped on a tiny strip and adhered with foam adhesive.  To make this other wise simple card, I scored 1/2" up from the bottom and down from the top, leaving a space to adhere my focal image with foam adhesive.  It adds so much texture!

Lil' Inker Designs / September Release Day 1 / Giveaway

Amy_Fall Foliage 

Welcome to Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs September Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps for fall and Halloween......are you ready?  Guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!

Fall Foliage will be a fast favorite!  This set is filled with gorgeous blooms, leaves, and buds.  After white heat embossing all the images onto Bristol Smooth cardstock, I ink blended Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks over the top.  After arranging them over a white panel cut with the Stitched Woodgrain Cover Up Die, I picked them up with Press 'n Seal to be able to add some dimension to parts of my arrangement.  A simple 'thanks' die cut word, from Bouquet of Roses Die, was inked up in the same Distress Inks and added to my card.  As finishing touches, I added some white gems from Pretty Pink Posh.

SugarPea Designs / Celebrate

Hello!  I'm here with a birthday card using the new Birthday Balloons set from the last SugarPea Designs release.  You can't ever have too many birthday cards ready to go!

I stamped a panel of cardstock with the solid balloon image in a cluster using red, pink, yellow, and orange inks.  I love how the colors look overlapped!  To this panel, I used the Celebrate SugarCut and die cut it 3 times.  Yes, right over the stamped panel!  I die cut several more 'celebrate' in white cardstock and layered all three for dimension.  


As you would a puzzle, I simply pieced the words back into the stamped panel.  Add a few coordinating gems, stamped sentiment, and done!

Queen & Co. / Holiday Wishes Kit

Hello!  Christmas will be right around the corner and I've got some easy shaker cards to share using the Queen & Co. Holiday Wishes Kit.

My first card is traditional with light bulb type ornaments using some of the red and green papers from Merry & Bright 6x6 paper pad.  I filled them with the candy cane and snowman face toppings included in the kit.  

Christmas Greetings

My ornaments were mounted onto a polka dot embossed white panel and embellished with glitter tops along with silver embroidery floss.  A simple sentiment fishtail banner was added.

My second card uses non-traditional colors along with lots of silver embellishments.  I added silver paper to the bottom of a notecard and added the pink snowflake paper from Merry & Bright 6x6 paper pad that was die cut with a decorative edge.

Peace Love Joy

My ornament shaker is all done in silver glitter paper and some gorgeous metallic round toppings.  I added a sentiment banner cut at an angle with foam adhesive.  To finish, a few Clear Goosebumps were added.

Technique Tuesday / Christmas Blog Hop

Christmas Birds 

Hi everyone!  
Technique Tuesday just released some brand new Christmas products and we're celebrating with a mini Christmas Blog Hop!  We will be releasing more Christmans products in October and November as well!  Stay tuned!

I had some fun coloring these adorable images from Christmas Birds.  I started with sponging Broken China Distress Ink over a snowfall stencil and a die cut circle.  I colored and die cut the images embellishing them with a white pigment pen.  I added the images to my scene with foam adhesive as well as a sentiment banner.  A few white gems were added as "snow".

Color Throwdown / The Stamp Market--Petal Patch


I am so honored to share a card as a Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge!  These colors are sure to get you inspired!

Again this week's colors are fall inspired and gave me a chance to use this beautiful layering stamp set from The Stamp Market called Petal Patch.

Actually, to create this card, all the supplies are from The Stamp Market!  I stamped a kraft panel using the Just Checking In stamp to create my own background paper.  I added a kraft die cut frame using Oh Happy Day Shaker Die.  I stamped and die cut my florals from Petal Patch and arranged them in the lower left corner.  My sentiment is 'thankful' from Lots of Leaves (yes, I used this last week too! It's that good!) and partial stamping from Friendly Bunch.  


Please join me along with the entire Color Throwdown DT with this week's colors and create!

Reverse Confetti / Stock Your Stash (Halloween/Fall)

SYS Challenge Halloween 

Hello!  I am sharing a card for the Reverse Confetti.......Stock Your Stash Challenge!  
Every month will be a new theme and this month we are showcasing the upcoming Halloween/Fall season!

I couldn't pass up an opportunity to create another Halloween card!  I used a previously released die set called Halloween Bits.  It makes for a quick and easy card!  No stamping just a bit of die cutting!  (I did layer the backs of the die cuts with black and yellow cardstock)  My images were layered over a Topped Off Tag, pattern paper from Abundant Autumn, and a stamped sentiment strip on the right from Treat Yo' Self.
