Always and Forever Wedding Card

Today is a fun day to mix up a few dies and see what happens.  This is my favorite part of creating as you probably know about me-- so i started with the "Hemstitch Squares" and cut it in white and added the "Trefoil Crest Etched Die" in white too on top to give a more fancy effect.  I guess you could say it's like gingerbread on a house when you mix them, they are fun little pieces that give it more pizazz and makes it really stand out.  Not to mention you get a lot more use out of your dies changing them up.

The paper has just bits of gold in the printed pieces in the set so i used mirror card on it to make it more styled for a wedding ... The other parts are just white cardstock and i used a good heavy weight so that it would give it more of a shadow.  If you only have thinner paper just cut it twice to make it thicker to make it stand out more.  The Always die cut is from Quietfire Design and it fits perfect!

Thanks so much for stopping by today... we have a couple more weeks and then
it's almost time for a new release!!  I can't wait to share it with you.

My Gypsy Soul baby book

  If you love making ATC size things then you are going to love what i have to share today.  The GSLC store has lots of these little cuties to make up to be anything that you want but i just got some brand new baby papers so i created a little mini book box and some little ATC Easels to put up in a babies room to decorate.

The papers had alot of cute bits to decorate all of these little things but before you start decide what needs to be painted and get that all done and dried with a good acrylic or chalk paint.   Then you can measure and cut out the pieces to fit on the box and the little easels and it will go really fast.  I really love all of it but the cute little book box is one of my favorite to do by far.

And inside we have an ATC mini book that fits perfectly of course and i made a tiny one that can fit your favorite baby pictures from their first year.  I love the stickon from this set and used alot of them.  Some i added extra 3D foam squares to give them just a bit more dimension.

And my last photo is of the ATC Easels and the cards that go with them.  This is such a neat thing and would make such a wonderful gift for the holidays.  You could even put past family pictures to share each year... How fun would that be.  

Below i put links to all these cute little chippies and hope you will try some for yourself.

Wedding gift mini book for the Bride

Happy Saturday to all of you and thank you for stopping over... today i have a little mini book that i made for a bride for a shower that i am going to or you can even create a fancy gift card holder for a wedding.  For my book i used the brand new Shapeabilities Swirl Booklet insert.  And if you already have the first set this goes perfect inside of it and also has an insert for the gift card or a photo on the left.  

For my sweet book i cut and embossed the gift card insert in a pretty taupe and ivory print and also stamped a nice sentiment for the right side. All of the pieces i matted in the silver cardstock that i used for the front of my mini book so that it all went together nicely. 

Here is a close up of the front so that you can see all the pretty swirled detail in the die.  I added lots of rhinestones to my book front to make it sparkle like the bride does for her wedding day.

And to finish my book i tied in some silver cording and just a bit of silk ribbon onto the side.  There is also a piece to make a closure for the book so i cut mine in silver to mix with the die front and found the perfect rhinestone to finish it off.  It's looks like a gorgeous diamond ring!!

I hope you get a chance to order this cute die and make some of these for your family and friends this year... they would be great for Birthdays and Christmas too.

A very special card to share

I have one of my favorite cards to share today not only for the gorgeous die but because it's some of my very favorite colors.  The die i am using today is from the Romancing the Swirl collection from Becca Feeken and is one of the newest card creator dies.  Which means that it designs the complete card front and all you have to do is add embellishments.  I love that so much ......

This was fun too because i love the colors of the costumes from India and Pakistan and i had the perfect papers.  They are so vibrant and beautiful with touches of gold and silver that really set it off.  I added small golden colored rhinestones on the front and a pretty bow with a jewel to finish it off.  Inside i put an extra piece of white on the kraft card to stamp a sentiment to send to my friend.  I know the perfect one that i am going to use for it.

And this is just a closeup of all those gorgeous swirls in the die.  Becca really knows how to design dies and i just love to make pretty things with them so it's a perfect match.  

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your holiday this week!!

Knowing you makes me happy

I am so glad you stopped today i have one of my favorite cards i made with Becca's new dies.  It is called Sweetheart Swirl and has the prettiest designs in the edges and makes up the prettiest card.  I just wanted to keep this simple so i diecut the blue papers for around the sentiment and popped them up with 3D foam so that you can really see the design.  And for the sentiment i used Versafine black on white and cut 2 circle medallions from the Graceful Doily Etched die set just to add a lacy pop of white and I also added one under the bow to give it something to anchor to.  

For the backround i used the Hemstitch Rectangle in white and then matted it with the same blue to give it a nice border around it.  And i think the sentiment pretty much says it all.  This is a very happy card to give to a very special someone.

Thank you again for stopping by and have a very wonderful day,

Thank you with flowers...

I am so happy that you had time to stop over today and see what i created with Becca's new dies.  I wanted to make something different this week today to share so i created a Z card that folds out from the center and i used the "Flourished Square" die on the front like you see above to create a frame.  I also used one of my favorite labels called the "Francesca Label" to stamp the sentiment on.

To make my card i did a sample first to get all the sizing right and the folds in the right place on the front of my card.  The i went ahead and cut pieces of a new Simple Stories paper that had lots of pretty colors and flowers in it for the inside and the front.  As you can see the label is only glued down on one side so that you can open it yet it looks really cute closed too.

It was so fun doing something a little bit more country and not so traditional like i normally do.  And the flowers i fussy cut from the paper to tuck in around the edges.  I added a little stickles to them but i think i should have kept it being a clear color to make it pop more.   But as always it's fun to look outside the box and try something new... this would be a great style for a wedding card or graduation too.

Thank you for stopping over and have a great day celebrating your dad today!
