Rainbow and Clouds Card

Good morning all!  Today I have a fun and cheery card to share with you.
This card revolves around the GMD stitched cloud border dies set.
I used those dies to cut clouds out of white cardstock and vellum.  I added various sequins to the clouds using glue stitch squares from Glue Dots.
The rainbow was created with circles of varying diameters.  The largest size was 3" and they decreased in .25" increments.  I tucked it between white and vellum cloud layers.  The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink with a Heidi Swapp stamp.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Apple For The Teacher Card

Good morning!  This week my boys started school and one of them had a teacher whose birthday was on Thursday, so I made her this card.
 The card is created from a svg file from SVG Attic's JGW Apple Dandy set.  I used DCWV's Grade School stack for the patterned papers.
 The apple and sentiment are popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Pink and Main's Birthday Wishes stamp set.  The embellishments  I used were Lime Licorice Trendy Twine and GMD Watermelon enamel dots.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Victorine Originals Challenge #9 ~ Wings

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with the theme of "Wings". Here is what I created for inspiration!
 I started by creating the background for the bird cages with Canson XL Watercolor paper and used Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac, Mustard Seed, and Worn Lipstick with my aqua brush to watercolor.  I waited for that to dry then stamped the Victorine Originals Bird Cages stamp using Versafine Onyx Black ink and my stamp tool.  I carefully trimmed the stamped image apart and layered it on black cardstock, then adhered it to my card base.
 The sentiment is from the V.O. Elegant Sayings stamp set.  The enamel dots are from GMD Sunset colors.
Here is the wonderful inspiration board for the current challenge:
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s that follow the above theme and/or color scheme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Shaped Heart Card

Hello all!  I am sharing a shaped heart card with you today.  I started out by making the card base using the largest GMD Big and Little Pierced Chain Heart die.
I layered that with a GMD Lacey Doily die cut and two die cuts of the smallest GMD Big and Little Pierced Chain Heart die.  I wrapped Krazy For Kraft Trendy Twine around the front, added a small sentiment on a tag and a key charm.  The finishing touch was two GMD Rose Garden Enamel Dots on the small heart.  The papers I used are from the 6x6" Love You pad from The Paper Studio.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
