Bow Wrapped Birthday Wishes

Hello crafty friends,

Here's my card for Scrapyland's Challenge #18 (and my 2nd entry for their Guest Designer call).  The theme was birthdays/celebrations using any brand of die Scrapyland sells.     

For this card I used three of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Candle dies, cutting them out of white and baby blue glitter papers.  

I also used, one of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Four Bows dies, cutting it out of white and pink glitter papers.

And as my finishing touch,  I used the Die-Versions Sweet Wordlets Happy and Die-Versions Sweet Wordlets Birthday dies for my "Happy Birthday".  

I love how simple, but elegant this card turned out.   Thanks for stopping bye today.  Until next time, take care.

Anything Goes

Hello crafy friends,

It's Saturday, May 15th 10:30am and I just found out about the Scrapyland Guest Designer call and I know I want to submit a card.  Now I should be working on the three cards I need for later today (2 Birthday cards and 1 Mother's Day card)... LOL  

I have a lovely bridal card to show you today. 

I started by covering my card base with wood grain pattern paper.  Next I die cut several of the Die-Namites Beautiful Flowers die, because I trimmed sections to fit them on my card.  I wanted to create background of flowers instead of die cut clusters.  

Next I stamped, colored and glittered my Stamping Bella bride.  I added foam tape under her for dimension and attached her to the card. 

I glued an Elizabeth Craft Best Wishes die cut at the bottom of her dress and added tiny pearls to the card.

I'm past the point were I have friends getting married, so I will just hold on to this lovely card until the next generation is of age.

Thank you for stopping bye my blog today. Please stay a while and browse some older post.  I LOVE comments, so please leave me some feedback.  Take care.

Welcome Die-Versions Friends!

Dear Die-Versions Fans,

In honor of National Scrapbook Day and Mother's Day we on the Die-Versions Design Team have come up with a fun Blog Hop and Card Challenge.  The Mother's Day Card Challenge will begin on May 5th and run thru May 11th and the winners will be announced on the Die-Versions Blog on May 15th. 

The Design Team will be picking 5 winners from the Mother's Day Card Challenge.  The theme for this Challenge is to make a Mother's Day Card.  To be eligible to be one of the 5 Lucky winners you have to comply with the following:

*  Your card must be newly created and PLEASE, no back linking
*  Please be a follower of the Die-Versions' blog along with the Design Team Members Blogs (listed below)
*  You need to leave a comment on the Die-Versions' blog and each of the Design Team Members blogs (listed below)

*  We would love it if you used a Die-Versions die in your card, but that is not mandatory!

I love the Whispers - Vase of Roses die, so for this card I die cut it twice, so that I would have green leafs and red flowers. I cut the red flowers and glued them over their green counterparts.   

I created my scalloped opening by die cutting the Whispers - Daisy Chain Scallop die from my background pattern paper.  
The mom die cut comes from the Sweet Spot #1 Mom die.  

Here's a close up of the card:

For my second card I used the beautiful font called Magical to spell MOM and framed it with the lovely Daisy Frame.

Thank you for stopping bye. Your next hop should take you to Patti's blog.  The list of Design Team Members Blogs:

Inspired by Wendy

Hello crafty friends,

I have a layout for you today scrap-lifted inspired by Wendy Antenucci​'s "My Baby Girl" layout, which you can find here.   I used products I had on hand, so my layout doesn't have the same products her's does.   

My sewing machine is not working currently, so I ended up using a stitch die (Paper Smooches "Dots & Dashes") to get the look of stitches down my white hearts.

I feel my layout has a heavier feel to it than Wendy's, but I think it matches my darker photo. I love how it turned out and thank Wendy for the inspiration.
