Someone Like You

HAPPY NEW YEAR's EVE!! Where did 2014 go??? I can't believe another year is passing and that tomorrow will be 2015! Well let's get this party started!

For the last challenge of the year over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog, I created this card using Saturated Canary - Bowie. She is colored with my Copics and accented with a little shimmer with the Wink of Stella - Clear brush pen. Her cheeks are colored with some shimmer chalks and I used a white gel pen for her freckles and the dots on her bow. She's a cutie!

The floral designer paper I used is from Echo Park - We Are Family. Bowie is framed with By DIEzyne Dies - Stitched Circles. Of course I had to add a red satin bow on the card =) Lastly, the sentiment "Someone like you should be celebrated every day" is from Mama Elephant - Make A Wish

THANK YOU for all your lovely comments this year and your continued support! I love that I can share my creations with everyone on my blog.

i love you {thisssss} much!

Good morning! Did everyone survive this holiday season? Who's hitting up the stores this weekend?? Not me...maybe..LOL

Here is a CAS card using the adorable stamp & sentiment from Mama Elephant - Pandamonium and the coordinating Pandamonium Creative Cuts Dies.  The cute little panda is propped up by using Action Wobbles Springs, with a little flick of your finger he wobbles =)

Lastly, to add a pop of color, I used the By DIEzynes Dies - Stitched Circles on red cardstock. Love the stitched detailing on the perimeter of the circle.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon! Don't forget we still have a challenge going on over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog!

kiss kiss, i love you.

Good morning! It's a NEW challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! The challenge is "Anything Goes - with an Optional Twist (Christmas)".

I love pandas, they are adorable animals that I just want to cuddle! LOL This is the first shaker card I've ever made....seriously. I always wanted to but never tried. It was pretty easy. All you need are some nesting dies to make the shaker portion, in which I used the By DIEzynes Dies - Stitched CirclesHere on my card I am using the stamp set Mama Elephant - Pandamonium. There are several panda images in different sizes and poses. I used three and I made the scene of two of them kissing one panda under the mistletoe. Lastly from the stamp set, I used the sentiment "kiss kiss, i love u.". 

To fill up the shaker card, I used sequins and beads from my supplies and the red from Sulyn - Mixed SequinsThe hearts inside are from the stamp set, it's colored with Copics and accented with Wink of Stella - Clear Pen. The little mistletoe branch is from a Christmas spray and I added red sequins for the berries.

I Am Roses "End of the Year" Blog Hop

Good morning! WELCOME to the I Am Roses “End of the Year” Blog Hop. I'm up first for you today and here is my card:

I've used three types of flowers and leaves. We still have a few days left to get our holiday craft on so I created this project. The base of the card is simple and the main focus are the gorgeous flowers. Of course you can see the addition of sequins...obsessed!

I kept my post short and all the I Am Roses flowers will be posted below. I've yet to see all the DT's creations, so I will be hopping along with the rest of you!

Up next is: 

In case you get lost along the way, here is a list of the I Am Roses Design Team hopping today:

Season's Greetings

Happy Saturday! I'm sharing my Season's Greetings card using the By DIEzyne Dies Side Step Card die. I can't get enough of this die. I know that this die will be a forever favorite. Accompanying this die is MFT Die-namics Dainty Doily.

I'm still in holiday greeting cards mode. The sentiment "Season's Greetings" is from Mama Elephant Season's Greeting embossed in gold embossing powder. I paired up gold glittered cs with the Simple Stories DIY Christmas designer paper.

To complete the card, I added some gold sequins from Mixed Sequins by Sulyn and flowers from my stash.

Happy Tuesday! Here are my projects using the new stamp set Decembrrr from Avocado Arts.

Let's Go!

Card 1: Thanks SNOW much
I made an oval easel card. Not your traditional Christmas color combo, but I went for a frosty bold look with the blue & black. I created this cute winter scene using the snowman, snowflakes and tree images. All colored with my Copics. For the puffy snow, I used Liquid Applique in white, love the dimensional effect it gives. The sentiments "Decembrrr" & "Thanks SNOW much" are one of the many from the stamp set. I added some snowflake die cuts and flowers to finish the card.

Tag 1: SNOW good to see you
Next up, I made this cute reindeer tag. The reindeer is from the Hollydays stamp set.

I used the tree image again, stamped and fussy cut it out several times to use in the background. "SNOW good to see you" is another sentiment in the Decembrrr stamp set. I coordinated this tag with my previous card. Oh did I forget to mention that I added the biggest red shiner for the nose? Adorbs!

Tag 2: You're SNOW wonderful
For my second tag, I used the pair of penguins in the stamp set. I colored them with my Copics and fussy cut them. Look they're holding hands! LOL I had this snowflake doily die and cut it twice, added some dimensional foam adhesive and layered them. I doodled some dots for a pierced look on the background. I used more of that Liquid Applique for the snow effect. The "You're SNOW wonderful" is yet another phrase included in the set. 

Hope you enjoyed my projects for you. Thanks for stopping in today!

Let it Snow...again

Good Morning! Only a couple more weeks 'til Christmas...eeek! I'm sharing my Let It Snow card using the dies designed by our talented Rhea! The die I used is the By DIEzyne Dies Side Step Card. I love love this die. It's the perfect die to create this look and also it comes with all the trimmings to make the mats.

No need for designer paper, I kept it monochromatic with white cs. Another die I used is from MFT Die-namics Dainty Doily. It's the largest doily in the back. The inner doily is from another set with the same style.

The "Let it Snow" sentiment is from Mama Elephant Season's Greeting. Lastly, I added some pearls and this glittered star branch for some sparkle.
