Enjoy This Day

Hey all, today I wanted to share a card I made using the
Paper Smooches "Flap Happy" stamp set along with my Twinkling H2Os.
(Yes, I know, I know, I'm obsessed.)

I ran into some difficulty while using the Butterflies 3 dies,
which turned out to be just consumer error. ;)
I had the die cuts upside down!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video,
which is also the start of my 2014 Spring Card Series.

Don't forget to like, comment and subscribe!

I'm also playing along in the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.
It's Anything Goes! You gotta love that!

Have a great day!

The Best And Most Beautiful Things

Hello there!
Have you had a chance to play with the February
This month is all about CAS and I'll admit, this is the hardest style for me.
I have white space issues! ;)

So for today's card, I did a pretty mottled watercolor background
with my Twinkling H2Os (yes, another one!)
and topped it with some simple stamping using 

I couldn't resist using just a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope you like it! 

You have until the end of the month to link up your projects
using a Crafter's Companion product!

Lawnscaping Challenge #76


We are being sponsored this round with a FREE stamp set to our winner
by the lovely folks at Lawn Fawn who are also having Inspiration Week
right now so be sure to check that out if you haven't already.

There are definitely no unloved stamp sets in my Lawn Fawn collection,
 but with so many adorable sets to choose from, 
there are definitely some that haven't been used in a while.

For my card I chose to dust off Flutter By and Many Thanks.

I used my Twinkling H2Os to paint the background 
and then stamped my images with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.
I added some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh
(my current favorite card embellishment) as a finishing touch.

I hope you guys aren't getting tired of seeing me use Twinkling H2Os 
because I am totally in love and can't get enough of them!

I just wish the shimmer would show up better on camera. 
Perhaps you can see it better in this photo?

In real life it is just so pretty!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

Please head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog
and check out the other amazing design team projects
and don't forget to play along!

See you there!

You Only Live Once

Hey all!
So I finally got a chance to break into those 
Twinkling H2Os that I got for Christmas.
Oh my goodness are they pretty!
The shimmer was impossible to capture in this photo,
but in real life it is so gorgeous! 
I am going to have so much fun creating with them.

But before I get ahead of myself let me give you the deets
on this card -- after I created my background with washes of color,
from Crafter's Companion with Ranger's Archival Jet Black ink.
Then I used an awesome Mae West quote from

At the very last second, I smoothed my hand over the paper
and smeared the sentiment a little bit, but the overall card was 
so pretty, I decided to share it anyway.

What do you think?
