Pretty In Pink


Greetings everyone.  I hope you are well and finding lots of time to craft.

Sometimes when I start a card nothing goes right, but the stars must of been aligned that day because everything seemed to work for this design. I really went out of my comfort zone to create this design. I started with the white Floral Oval and added the solid pink Classic oval to the center.  

I ordered the Colorfin Pan Pastels from Amazon but I am the worst at coloring anything so I have been dragging my feet using the set.  I first die cut the flowers using a while card stock and then colored the flowers with the Permanent Red Tint & Magenta.  I added a yellow glitter card stock for the center of the flowers. Using the Climbing Vine die in green card stock I used it for the shape of the design, then tucked several Gentle leaves behind the flowers and added the larger Poinsettia leaf.  I attached white flowers to the Leafy Spring and tucked them around the foliage.  To complete the design I die cut the Meridian Border twice and added it to each side.

Materials:
Colorfin Pan Pastels - Ultra Soft Susan Gardens Artist Pastel Set 
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Garden Notes Small Poinsettia
Impression Obsession - Tiny Flowers
Memory Box - Meridian Border (retired)
Poppy Stamps - Blooming Poinsettia (leaf only), Climbing Vine, Gentle Leaf & Leafy Spring

Just a little Valentine


Hello, and a big thank you to everyone that stopped bye and left such nice comments on my last card.   I did not even know I had a Stitched Scalloped Circle but I thought it went really well with the design.

You will need to die cut the little girl twice, once in white and then red card stock to create her dress.  I added a glitter trim to the bottom of her dress.  To create the hair I die cut the head in brown card stock and just used scissors to create the hair.  I used mounting tape behind the girl to add a little dimension.

Materials:
Impression Obsession - Tiny Flowers & Girl with Easter Basket
Memory Box - Stitched Scalloped Circles
My Favorite Things - Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame
Mounting Tape
Poppy Stamps - Leafy Sprig
Spellbinders -A2 Matting Basics A

Chibitronics Light Up Birthday Card

Finished Card 

With battery pressed on card

I wanted to try my hand at making a really simple light up card using the Chibitronics kit I ordered from Amazon.  It actually is very easy to use and I was able to get my card to light up on my first try.  The kit comes with a nice instruction booklet, LED Stickers in all colors, coin cell batteries, battery clip and a roll of self adhesive Copper tape.  I also watched several video's that feature different ways to create your lights.  I only wanted the candle to light up so I used one LED directly behind the candle.  I hope you will give this technique a try.

Materials:
Chibitronics Kit 
Poppy Stamps - Birthday Candles
Memory Box - Petite Cake & Pastry Labels
Impression Obsession - Happy Birthday
Spellbinders - Standard Circle Large

Trailing Hearts

I would like to enter my card into the Impression Obsession Card Challenge

Thank you everyone that stopped bye and left such nice comments on my last card. Wow I can't believe it is 2017 already.  Since out weather is still wintry with snow, ice and wind I thought I would make a Valentine card to reflect the chilly temperatures.

I just realized every die I used except the frame was an Impression Obsession brand.

I first die cut the oval frame using two sizes listed below then die cut twice and cut the Spring Wreath foliage in half and attached it around the frame and doted it with Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Using the Hill Landscape die I created the snow mound and added the blue water to it and attached to the oval frame.  I used glitter paper for the Mountain and a blue cloud card stock for the sky and glued them to the frame.  Then I tucked the trees along the sides and added the Ducks with their scarfs and only used the kite sting with the attached hearts.  

Materials:
Impression Obsession - Duck Set (DIE398-F), Spring Wreath (DIE262-Y), Kite (DIE153-I), Fir Trees  (DIE084-V), Hill Landscape Layers (DIE343-T), & Mountain Landscape layers (DIE347-W)
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Red
Spellbinders - Grand Nestabilities Grand Ovals (frame)(3-3/4" x 5", 4-1/4" x 5-5/8")
