Level Pegging!

Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is going well so far. We're having one of those days when the kids are playing together quietly in one of their rooms upstairs and leaving me to happily make cards. I know. WHAT!? I've checked twice to make sure they weren't getting into trouble or dangling each other over the stair well. All seems well...

For this card I used a stencil to create the tiny dots on the white card base and loads of other Simon Says Stamp exclusives to pull the rest together. I die cut the heart from the centre of the speech bubble, then coated it with Versamark and heat embossed a super sparkly powder all over. 

I'm linking up to Cure For the Monday Blues #44- Level Pegging. I love the graphic feel to this inspiration photo, not to mention the black and white with small pops of bold colour.

Kiss a Frog

Woohoo for Thursdays! That means it's only one more work day until the weekend!! Wait...I'm a stay at home mom.  Doesn't apply to me.  Shoot. ;) I haven't had a whole lot of crafty time lately but when I do, I like to squeeze lots of challenge fun into my creations! 

Today I'm playing along with the Fusion Card challenge by using just the sketch, and with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes. 

I die cut, stamped, and coloured the cute froggies from Lawn Fawn's Critters Ever After and popped them up using foam tape on adorable patterned paper from the Let's Polka petite pack. The die cut heart was covered in Diamond Stickles. For the banner, I cut flag ends into a strip of paper and coloured it with a Copic marker to get the exact shade I wanted. 

Thanks for stopping in today and have a GREAT day!

CAS-ual Fridays feature- Spring delight

Even though I am currently looking out the window at mounds and mounds of snow (not as much though as my east coast friends), I cannot help but think of Spring. Such a lovely season with all the pretty colours coming back to life and my cardmaking lately has been reflecting that. Lots of bright colours and floral designs. I just can't help it. 

Today's card uses some great CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and Fri-Dies to put you in a springtime mood.  I watercolored a fun, bright panel using watercolor paper, then die cut the Casual Trees Fri-Dies from it several times. After diecutting the Bubble Labels die, I heat embossed the sentiment from Truth Is in white. All the colourful trees are adhered to the back of the label and then popped up on a white woodgrain card base.  I have a few spring birthdays coming up so I think I'll make some more of these!

Thanks for stopping in today, and have a GREAT day!

Watercolour fun

I created this watercolor panel a few weeks ago and have been anxious to use it.  The Little Tangles challenge #53- Watercolor seemed like a perfect way to put it to use.  

I'm also linking up to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge- Donut Delight. The colours and falling hearts are my inspiration from the picture. 

When I asked what I should do with the initial watercolored panel I had so many creative suggestions. I'm not sure if I went with any of them but it was fun reading them!  One suggested it looked like a unicorn threw up on it...interesting lol. 

After using my Peerless watercolors to create the panel, I embossed the Falling Hearts in white and again in gold sparkle embossing powder. I pulled out Just For You (one of my first and favourite Neat & Tangled sets) and embossed the sentiment in gold, and the balloons in gold on vellum. I fussy cut them and tied a bit of gold thread around and adhered them using Kool Tak clear foam tape.

Falling Hearts, Kool Tak and white/gold embossing powders all came from the fabulous Butterfly Reflections, Ink online store. 

Have a great day!
