Grad Card

Happy Monday!  It seems as if one of my kids has been graduating every year and this year it's my son's turn to graduate from community college.  To celebrate his special day I created a fun card for him.
I gathered my supplies for my project and decided to create a tea length card to accommodate the oversized letters.
All of the dies used on my card are from Momenta.  I used the Alphabet Uppercase Serif dies for the large letters which were cut twice and layered.  I used the Glue Dots Stitch Glue Squares between the layers to easily adhere them together.  The Stitch Glue Squares were also used to adhere the letters to the card.  I used the Glue Dots Adhesive Gluetape to adhere the patterned paper to the base of my card.
The congrats die cut is from the Momenta Hello Word Fetti dies and the stars are from the Momenta Happy Birthday Cut and Emboss set.  I used some Twisted Lime Trendy Twine to create a tassel and a small brad to turn a basic square into a graduation cap.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a spectacular day!

All Things Grow With Love Card

Happy Friday!  Today I have a quick card to share which I created for the challenge going on over at Pink and Main.  I used the Seeds of Kindness stamp set and watercolored the image.  The center of the watering can was paper pieced with the pink polka dot paper to give my project an extra pop of color.  A bit of Wink of Stella was added to the flower centers for a sparkly affect.
I cut out the image with a circle die and layered it on a banner die cut.  A sentiment from the same Pink and Main stamp set was stamped on the base of my card.  The finishing accent were some coordinating enamel dots.

Sweet Birthday

Hello, today I have a sweet birthday card I created with some fun products that I've been hoarding in my craft room.  I picked out the papers from the Paper House Surf, Sun, Sand paper pad which coordinated perfectly with the adorable Paper House Sticker Flakes.  I used a few different dies for the base of my card and adhered the stickers on top.
The oversized sentiment is one of my favorites and is from the Pink & Main "Hello Sweet" stamp set.   The puffy clips are also from the same collection and were too cute not to show off in my pictures.
I stamped another sentiment from the same stamp set on the inside of my card.  Some Paper House washi tape and the same papers were used to decorate the inside of my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Splash Layout

Hello! Today I have a double page layout to share created with the DCWV Watercolor Ombre Stack. The papers are a beautiful mix of patterns, some with iridescent treatments.
I used my Cricut Explore for the sea life on my layout page.  The smaller seahorse were embossed with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder.  The water border was punched with the Fiskars Boundary Waters Border punch and embossed with the Cuttlebug Chuck embossing folder.  
I tucked in a couple of tags behind the photo mat for journaling.  I added some coordinating flowers and bling as embellishments on my layout page.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Bride - Groom Layout

Today I'm sharing a double page layout from the wedding album that I'm working on.  Since the album is an 8x8 size, the pages take very little to put together.
I cut out the bride/groom title with the Momenta Alphabet Uppercase Serif dies and adhered them to the page with some pop dots for added dimension.
I added some flourish Momenta wedding stickers to each of the pages.  The flourishes were accented with some bling stickers.  I added a bit of May Arts cording to each of the photo mats which finished off my layout page.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Mom Card

Happy Monday!  We have a big weekend coming up as we celebrate Mother's Day on Sunday!  I created this monochromatic card for the special day.  My project started with papers from the Momenta Watercolor Splash pad.
I die cut the letters from the Momenta Alphabet Uppercase Serif dies.  Each letter was die cut twice with pop dots between the letters for added dimension.  I also inked the letters on the edges to keep them from fading into the background of my card.  A few Momenta Laurels & Flowers Foil stickers were used as embellishments and to add a bit of elegance to my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!

Let's Celebrate Card

Hello! Today I have a fun and festive card to share which has a Cinco de Mayo flare to it.  The background of my card was created with Oxide Inks and splattered with water.  Next, I layered the background with some fringe papers from the Recollections Mexican Festival paper pad.
I cut out the image from the same papers using a die from Gina Marie Designs (GMD).  Another GMD die was used for the banner.  I used some Stickles on the banner along with enamel dots. A bow in Trendy Twine Lime Orangesicle was the finishing accent on my card.
