make it Monday # 312 Framing Sentiments & Images, hosted by Laurie Schmidlin.

 Hello, I have made a few cards for Make it Monday #312 framing sentiments and images.  Laurie Schmidlin is the host for this week and I really enjoyed her video.  The card above I created the frame using noted scallop A2 die.  The sentiment is from mini blooms also using brushed birds and beautiful berries: spring.  I did pop up the frame using foam tape.

On this card and the next one I used the pattern paper in two different places, as the outside of the frame and the inside of the frame.  I would like your opinion on which way is more pleasing to your eye, the first card or the second?  On both of the cards I used the new huggables: chick stamp set and die and the easter grass die.  The frame is made using the noted A2 scallop die. The chick huggable was such a joy to use.

Below is both cards together, thinking maybe this is easier to chose from.

and all three together...

I appreciate all of your opinions.

Have a great day!

Make it Monday #305, Love of Layers

This week's Papertrey Inc. Make it Monday #305 is by Laurie Schmidlin.  She shows us how to add multiple layers on a card. Laurie has a beautiful video here.

I first started out using the background basics: Birch stamp followed by the Mix and Mat: Plaid die using foam tape for my first layer.  The lovely Bells and Boughs, Dash away All, Jingle All the Way, and the dies were used along with the Quilted die, all using them for more raised layers. The outer edge of the Mix and Mat: Plaid die was sprinkled with glitter and red sticklers and sequins were added.

Have a nice day!

Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge #72

Good morning, Inspired By All The Little Things has a beautiful inspirational photo, so I decided to join in on there challenge. 

I decided to use Kat Scrappiness, stitched and layered Christmas tree die.  I silver embossed some of the layers and then added glitter to them.  I distressed the background with salty ocean distress inks and added water droplets and sequins.  The snow hills and burlap texture is from Papertrey Ink.

Have a great day and join in with  Inspired By All The Little Things#72,

Make it Monday #276 Kraft and Colored Pencils, Februrary 2017 Papertrey Ink.

Hello everyone, it is time for Make-it-Monday #276 Kraft and Colored Pencils challenge.  Come join in on the challenge, over at Papertrey Ink.  Today I used Simply Spring Borders stamp set.  I stamped the rows of these adorable bunnies and white heat embossed them, then coloring them in with pencil colors.  Also in this stamp set is these little dots, so I added them too. To cut the curve of the kraft paper I used In the Meadow dies and I used gold embossing powder for the sentiment.

Have a nice day!
