Girly Girl

I made this card for my friend's birthday. Her birthday is March 13th. This digital image is by Hobby Paleis. I thought the image lead itself to a girly girl card which must include pearls.

Stamps: Main image by Hobby Paleis, Bee Happy by Designed2Delight
Paper: Solid varies
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Crystal effects, glitter pens, gold beads, Corner punch

Quilted Birds

This challenge consists of using Faith's (Designed2Delight) final digital image for February which is quilted birds. I added some dazzling diamonds to the wet crystal effects which gave the image a confetti appearance. I thought the sentiment "giggle" provide an instant smile. The layout was designed using Splitcoast Stampers card sketch #255. You can purchase the digital stamp at:

If I had Wings

This is a card set I made for a birthday gift. I love the saying "If only I had wings, I would be there with you." The butterflies are made using MS butterfly punch. The colors in the pattern paper determined the color palette. The card box is using the instructions on how to make a pizza box. You can find the instructions over at Splitcoast Stampers.

This is a binder clip Happy Birthday Turtle gift. Something different than giving a card. This little turtle is the beginning of a new line of digital stamps by Whimsie Doodles. To celebrate the arrival of the Whimsie Doodle line you can download it for free. The neat thing about digital images you can make them any size. The turtle was colored using copic markers. Check out Splitcoast Stampers gallery for more ideas using a binder clip.

File Folder Albumn

One of my favorite things about artists is how ingenious they are. Scrapbookers, stampers, and paper artists of all shapes and sizes have been stepping outside the box lately, and coming up with newer, cooler albums and mini books. One of the best things about using file folders is that they are readily accessible. This is a albumn I made using a basic file folder. Go over to Tayored Expressions to obtain the step-by-step instructions of this project.

Faux Leather Matchbook Post-It Note Holder

Today I have for you a matchbook Post-It™ Note Holder I made using the faux leather technique. This project was simple to do and makes for a quick gift for someone. I think if you used green pattern paper for the inside, green post-it notes and a large green eyelet this would make a nice St. Patrick's Day gift.

Faux Leather Technique:

  • Emboss black cardstock with the Mosaic Cuttlebug embossing folder.
  • Apply Versamark ink over the cardstock in areas.
  • Add clear embossing powder and heat.
The tutorial and video on how to make the matchbook can be found over on Splitcoast Stampers.

Happy Bee Day

I needed to make a birthday card for a friend of mine and this image was just perfect for the occasion. This challenge consists of using Faith's (Designed2Delight) adorable Bee Day cake digital image on a project. The colors I choose were soft green and peach palette. The layout was designed using SC 266. There's some bling on the image where I used some glitter pens in copper and silver. You can purchase the digital stamp at:

Stamps: Image by Designed2Delight
Paper: Solid varies, SU pattern paper
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Paper flower, green rhinestone, crystal effects, glitter pens (copper/silver), CB Leafy Branch embossing folder.
What do you think of the color palette I selected?

All Things Love

This Love photo cube was created out of a 2 x 2 square which my husband cut. Then I took the large paper clip and cut off the botton curve. The large paper clip was glued in small holes. This could be used year around.

This is a waterfall card I created using SU paper and the stamp called I {Heart} Hearts. You can find how to make this waterfall card at Splitcoast Stampers Website.

This is the waterfall card when you pull on the ribbon tab. It's is neat how the DSP makes a different impression instead of solid cardstock.

This is a card I made using a stamp from My Favorite Things. I loved how the red and chocolate looked on the card.
