♥ Simon Says...Add A Sentiment! ♥


Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! We have a brand new challenge starting today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! Our challenge this week is...ADD A SENTIMENT!


The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Clearly Besotted. I am using the super sweet Full Steam Ahead Clear Stamp Set for my card. I stamped the images on to white cardstock, colored them in with some Spectrum Noir Essentials Colored Pencils and then added some Glossy Accents over the top of them.


The papers I used are from the DCWV 6x6 Shimmer Pastels Cardstock Stack. Love these shimmery colors!


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥ Shabby Chic Treat/Gift Holder ♥

Happy Sunday to you! I'm stopping in today with a super sweet Treat Holder that I made with some fabulous Amazing Paper Grace Dies for Spellbinders.


I first die cut the large Chemise frame die from the Coralene's Chemise Layering Frame Large Etched Dies Set and then used the rectangle die to cut out the center. I then die cut the Emmeline Treillage Die and adhered it over the top of the Coralene die cut. I then backed it with a piece of acetate.


I then adhered some of the Hemstitch Ovals Die Cuts to the front. I then embossed Happy Valentine's Day onto one of the Vintage Pierced Banners Dies. I then added some pearls, ribbon, gold trim and embellishments.


I then adhered the entire piece to a thick piece of pink glittered cardstock using hot glue just along the sides and bottom. This way it forms a "pocket" in which you can add candy, a gift card or any little gift that will fit. I then added some ribbon to it so it can be hung or carried.


Be on the lookout soon for some amazing new dies from Becca! You can see the Preview HERE! They are simply stunning!! I will have some projects up soon with them! ;)




Since my birthday is coming up (the 18th), be on the lookout for a Giveaway from me! ;)

Hope you have a wonderful day!

It's Wednesday! And that means we have a new challenge starting today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want you to...USE PATTERNED PAPER!

The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Doodlebug Design! For my card, I am using the Gingham Linen Rainbow Petite Prints 6x6 Paper Pad. So many cute and colorful papers in this one!

♥ Made with Love ♥


Hello. Stopping in today with a Valentine card I made with some beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Dies for Spellbinders. The base of my card is made with the Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame Large Etched Dies.


These dies are so easy to work with yet they look so intricate, delicate and elegant. For the insert on the oval die, I used the Lunette Arched Borders Etched Dies. Since it was a Valentine's Day card, I wanted to use the heart inserts instead of the pretty flower insert that Bella Rose comes with.


The papers are by Recollections. The sweet little tag is from the Graceful Tiny Tag Stamp and Die Set.


I hope you have a wonderful day!!

hugs...
