Essentials by Ellen - Pin-Sights Challenge - You Are Fabulous

Let's just all admire the photos above for awhile! I mean look at those beautiful colors. Not a chance I could pass up creating a card for this month's Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge

I used the Bold Blooms stamps and dies + watercolors to make my flowers and leaves colorful. My sentiment was created with a mix of the Totally Fabulous dies and the Totally Awesome stamp set. And to finish it, I added a few sequins and a bit of white twine. 

Thanks for popping in today. Wishing you a happy day!

CardMaker + Prickley Pear Blog Hop

Happy Friday to you! We are ending the week with a special blog hop featuring Prickley Pear. You should have arrived here from the blog of Sharon Smith. Incase you get lost along the way, you can find the full list of hoppers on the CardMaker blog

For my card today, I used the sweet Bold Daisies image. I kept my card clean and simple, with a white card base and colorful flowers. I simply stamped the daisies three times across the bottom of my card and colored them in with Copic markers. The centers of the daisies are bare, but I wanted to add a little something to them and decided to pull out my black Zig pen. So simple to create a design, yet adds so much to the flowers. 

To complete my card, I stamped the Life Is Not About sentiment just above my flowers and a few sequins randomly around both the flowers and sentiment. 

Prickley Pear is hosting a giveaway on their blog for a $20 gift certificate to their online store. Be sure to stop by and see how you could enter for a chance to win!

Your next stop in the hop is Tracie Clary. 

Thanks so much for visiting with me today. Enjoy your day and happy hopping!

Color Throwdown #446 - Hello

Jumping on this Monday morning to share a card for Color Throwdown #446. 

I used the Bold Blooms stamp set and die collection from Ellen Hutson to create this happy, floral card. I started by stamping the flowers along the top and bottom of my card base, using inks from Hero Arts ... Butter Bar, Pale Tomato and Fresh Peach. I die-cut and stamped three additional flowers in the same colors and also a few leaves in Lime Green. I attached all of those to my card front and then added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The 'hello' sentiment is from Script Greetings from Right at Home.

Thanks for visiting with me!

Where Creativity Meets C9 - Challenge #10 - Layered

Happy Friday to you, crafty friends! Are you ready for the next Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge? This month our challenge is 'Layered'. I'm not going to lie, layered cards are not something I'm totally comfortable with. I'm usually a CAS, and a lot of times, one layer card making kinda girl. But this was a fun change for me!

To begin, I cut strips of colorful card-stock ( .50" x 4.25" ) and covered the front of my card base with them. Next, I trimmed a  piece of white card-stock slightly smaller than my card base ( 3.75" x 5" ) and then using the Layers of Love die collection, cut the heart out. My sentiment was stamped using the Kindhearted stamp set. I adhered that to my card front and then moved onto the flower. 

The flower and leaves were die-cut using the Blossom die. I adhered those to the side of my heart using a little dimensional foam. And lastly, I added a few sequins randomly around my heart, flower and sentiment.

I'm so happy you stopped by and I'm really excited to see what you create for this 'Layered' challenge ... I hope you will join us. You have until June 29th to link your projects and enter for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Concord & 9th. Have fun and happy creating!
