Love Layout

Today I am sharing an elegant layout which I created several months ago.  I used some gorgeous papers from the Lemon Flower Stack from DCWV.  The title was cut from the Victorian Romance cartridge, the flowers from the Sophie cartridge and the yellow mat from the Elegant Edges cartridge.
The Pointed Flower EK Success punch was used for the photo mat border and the Fiskars border punch was used along the edges of the horizontal border.
Bling flourishes from my stash were added as an accent amongst the flowers.  I tucked in a tag behind the photo mat with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Crazy for You stamp set.  A small bow in Totally Black Trendy Twine was the finishing touch on my layout.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Party Favors

I have a fun party favor idea to share today.  I started my project with some Skinny Candy Chutes from Annie's Paper Boutique and filled them with some M&M's.  The scalloped ovals were cut from a Spellbinders die and adhered to each chute.  Next I added the Cute Farm Animals from KaDoodle Bug Designs and stamped their faces with the Black Eyed Critters Face Stamps from Peachy Keen.
A hole was punched in each scalloped circle for some coordinating Trendy Twine.  A small sentiment flag was stamped with the Hooray for Birthdays stamp set from Scrappy Moms.

Just a Small Token of Thanks!

Today I have a card to share using the newly released Scrappy Moms Random Acts of Kindness stamp set.  I used a sketch from the DCWV July Sketch Challenge to a create pocket card.  All of the papers are from the DCWV Navy and Coral stack, such a fun color combination.
The pocket was created using a large tag from the same stack of paper and I fussy cut an extra banner to embellish the front of the pocket.  The heart was also cut from the same stack and tucked in behind the gift card.  A few paper flowers were added to the banner, the tag and heart.  The sentiment was stamped on a hand cut flag.  The finishing touch on my card was a small bow in Totally Navy Trendy Twine.

Ride Away With Me!

Today I have another card to share with the July release stamps from Scrappy Moms.  I used the Cowboy Up stamp set for my card, I just love how versatile this stamp set is and it's not just for western themed projects as you can see with my card.
For my card, I used the Cutie KaToodles - USA Hot Air Balloon from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  The balloon was embossed with the Darice Circle Background embossing folder and the basket was embossed with the Cuttlebug Fabric Swatches embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment on a die cut ticket and added a small bow in Nautical Trendy Twine.

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Time to Play

Welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps.  Our theme for this challenge is "Time to Play".  This challenge gave me the opportunity to create a masculine project for a change.  I cut the game controller from the Wrap It Up cartridge and the tag from the Crash! Boom! Pow! digital cartridge.  I found this fun paper in my stash which was perfect for my card.  The game controller and tag were popped up on foam dots for dimension.
A few enamel dots were adhered to the game controller.  Some Totally Black Trendy Twine was added for the cord of the controller.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Game Day stamp set.

Can You Believe It Card

Today I have a fun card to share which I created for a friend of mine who is retiring from work.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Picture Perfect stamp set, I thought it was perfect for my card because it is hard for me to believe my friend is already retiring from work.
The sweet bear was cut from Busy Bee Bears cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  I popped up the bear on foam dots for dimension and added a few embossed clouds to the background of my card.  A butterfly themed ribbon and some enamel dots were the finishing touch.
