Happy Birthday To One Fungi!

Happy Friday, everyone!  This week's Friday Free4All Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use die-cut letters.  This birthday card for my brother-in-law has plenty of them.....it would have been a fairly easy card to make, but gluing all of the letters in place took a while.....why do I keep forgetting to use adhesive sheets?!  I used one sheet of designer paper from the Mushroom Medley Paper/Die Duos pack to cut out the A2 Pierced Triple Window frame, plus one mushroom image to add to the center.  The cut-outs were inset and the frame was popped up with Foam Mounting Tape. The small letters are from the Letter Board Dies set and the large letters are from Alphabet Caps.  Other dies used are: Matting Rectangle and A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Divinity Designs LLC - Blessings Box Inspiration

Hi, everyone! Today we are sharing more beautiful samples featuring the January Blessings Box from Divinity Designs LLC. You can see them all on Instagram HERE
My first sample features the Butterfly Layering Combo 2 Dies, a copper-embossed sentiment from the Beautiful Day set, the Watercolor Slimline Paper Pad, and the following dies: Leafy Edged Border, Pierced Rectangles, Matting Rectangle, Scalloped Circles, Circles, and the A2 Landscape Card Base with Layer.  The copper cut-outs from the Leafy Edged Border Die reminded me of angels, so I used two of them for corner embellishments.  A Blending Brush was used on the embossed edges of the sentiment panel and Foam Mounting Tape was used to give the sentiment panel and butterfly extra dimension.
My second sample features the Butterfly Layering Combo 3 Dies, a soft pattern from the Watercolor Wildflower A2 Card Fronts pack was chosen since it looked good with the Rose Gold foil cardstock.  The sentiment from Beautiful Day was stamped with a dark plum ink directly onto the designer paper.  Other dies used: Ornamental Squares, Ornate Hearts, Pierced Squares, Square Card Base with Layer. Foam Mounting Tape was used to pop up the butterfly and frame.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello There

Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge site over at Splitcoast is Real Fabric.....I chose this swatch as inspiration. I used the Stampin Up set, Nature's Prints, and Stazon Teal ink. I made two identical cards thanks to my beloved MISTI (it truly is the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented!) Three gems were added as a finishing touch. Both of these cards will go into my birthday card stash.
This is a photo of the fabric I used for inspiration:

Simply Amazing Sunset

Hi, everyone! This week's Ways To Use It Challenge over at Splitcoast is to incorporate elements using the letters L-O-V-E. For my card, L is for lavender sky, O is for ocean, V is vacation, and E is for evening. Time has been very limited for me due to daily overtime at work, so I have been creating a lot of cards from my recycled wall calendars. This card, from start to finish, only took 15 minutes. The sentiment is from Altenew and the following dies from Divinity Designs LLC were used: Pierced Rectangles, Matting Rectangle, A2 Landscape Card Base with Layer.  Some gems were added as a finishing touch.
