Floral Lace Mother's Day Card

 I am on day three of a killer headache so this card took forever to complete.  I wanted it to be extra special so I really took my time on it from the beginning planning stages all the way to the last pearl added.    I tried out some new techniques to me like coloring vellum with this card and really did have fun with it. That fabulous lattice card front is from Cricut Edge to Edge  cartridge. I then used that same shape to create a shaped card base.
 The beautiful floral images are from hot off the press lacy things stamp set.  I stamped onto Vellum with my black stazon ink, I ran it through my scan n cut 2.....  Oh good gosh you know I love that machine!    I did have to use my razor knife to cut the inner part, but that wasn't too hard.  I colored the backside of the vellum with my spectrum noir markers and a  couple of Green sharpie markers  for the leaves.  I stamped the floral image again on white card stock with the Stazon black ink and cut it out with my machine as well.   After cutting I went around the edges with a black sharpie marker just to get rid of any white edges.  I ran the white cardstock floral pieces through my Xyron so I could adhere it to the vellum pieces without it showing  through the vellum.
 I layered a center Mat cut from red foil paper and then another in black.  The Happy Mother's  Day sentiment is from Desert  Craftin diva's  called happy celebrations stamp set.  I stamped in versaMark and I heat embossed with Ranger white super fine detail embossing powder.  I ran that through cuttlebug  swirls embossing folder and the red foil in cuttlebug Swiss dots folder.   I also added some pearls from my stash I think I got them at Michael's.    I used sticky foam to pop up the floral images on the front of the card .
 For the inside of the card I layered another red piece that matches the front and I stamped the floral and the wishing you a beautiful day sentiment both from hot off the press lacy things stamp set with StazOn black ink because that paper  has a very slick surface.

 I will be playing along in these fun challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Challenge #275 - Mother's Day

Bloom Frame Mother's Day card

I wanted to make a card today with a dazzle as the focal and this is what I came up with. 
 This is another one of Mary's Sketch cards from Cardz TV.  This one is number Ten in the series.  Can you guys tell I am in love with that stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp.  I use it on almost every single card lately ... inside and out!!!  lol  I found that beautiful blue glitter Paper at Dollar tree and just love it.  The rest of the paper is from a recollections stack.  The awesome gold frame and other gold pieces is from Paper wishes.... HOTP Dazzles.  I am not one for hand cutting but the shiny reflective materials rarely gets recognized by my SNC2 but I have to tell you I love dazzles so much it is sometimes very worth hand cutting :)   I used my spectrum Noir pens to color onto the innie pieces for the pot, the flowers and the butterfly before placing them inside and then I added some pretty gold bling to the flower centers.  The Happy Mother's Day stamp is from Desert Crafting Divas - Happy Celebrations stamp set also one of my favorites!

For the inside of the card I just cut another of the same pattern paper from the front but this time cutting a section that had the beautiful flowers on it, again using the same stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp - bundle of Stitched shapes.  I added a butterfly dazzle near the flowers.  The stamp is from HOTP Lacy Things stamp set.

I am entering into these fun challenges:

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous and crafty day!

Botanical Blooms Mother's Day card

Oh my goodness did I have fun playing and coloring all sorts of ways to create this card.
I started out by stamping this lovely floral frame stamp (from HOTP Botanical Blooms stamp set) onto a piece of counterfold paper sheets, you know the kind fr the kitchen or better yet the sheet you lay into the basket before adding the fries.  I used my new favorite stitched die (Simon says stamp stitched shape bundle) to cut it out leaving the bottom with the tear off edge for an added cool effect.
I first just played with this piece coloring it with all sorts of supplies.  I colored the flowers, frame and swirls in with spectrum noir markers, I used a green sharpie for the green leaves.  I flipped it over and used my spun sugar distress ink with my round blending tool to color inside the frame.  I then switched to lilac distress ink around the outside of the entire frame.  I didn't think it came through enough so I flipped it over and added the lilac to the front around the frame.  I then added some sparkly teal chalk to the flower centers.  Wow... I really liked it just like this!

I decided on a purple print for the card front layer and used some matching teal metal brads to attach the layers together.  Then I found this deep purple vellum scraps in my stash and thought ooh!  So I stamped the single flowers onto the vellum and used my Scan N Cut 2 to cut them out.... Eeeeek love that machine!  Ok so I rubbed off the chalk from the flower centers on the first layer and used some small round dimensionals to pop up the top flower layers.  On the large one I curled up the edges to add more dimension.  I added a glue dot into the center of the large flower and covered it with the sparkly teal chalk.  I dabbed some chalk onto the other two flowers and was very pleased with the effect.  Then I used the Happy Mother's Day stamp from Craftin Desert Diva's - Happy Celebrations stamp set to stamp onto a white paper that I blended the lilac ink onto it and stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink.  I cut it with a HOTP scallop circle die which I popped up as well.  Then I took another scrap of the purple vellum and cut it with the stitched circle die from Simon Says Stamp.  I ran it through my xyron and adhered it onto the Happy Mother's Day scallop circle so it shows though the purple vellum.
For the inside I simply used two die cuts to layer together opposite each other, the shapes are spellbinder labels Twenty.  The inside sentiment stamp is from HOTP Lacy Things.  I also stamped one more flower from botanical blooms on white cardstock and cut it out with SNC2.  I then colored with same markers and added to inside.

I am entering into these fun challenges:
Simon says stamp - Show us your Metal (Brads)
CDD - in the garden Linky party
PDE Linky Party - #121 anything goes
Jo's Scrap Shack - FDF #136 Mother's Day

Diamond Plate Birthday Card

Needed a Birthday card for my son so I went with simple and masculine.
I love using my Cuttlebug Diamond plate folder for masculine cards but this time it was even more fun because I snagged up Hubby's Foil Tape from the garage. 
He recently had to buy this roll to make some repairs and he was worried about wasting the rest of the roll because he didn't need very much of it.... hahahahahaha he is too funny!  I will have no problem using it up for him!  I love to repurpose and reuse things when I can. 
ok so I took a large scrap of white cardstock and covered it with this foil tape with the edges roughly sticking off the edge.  I then ran it through the big shot with my Simon says stamp Bundle of Stitched shapes Die for the mat.... perfect!  I used some more cuts with that stitched die set for the flags sticking out.  The designer paper for the flags is from DCWV "Glam Rock"  I used a Fleur De Lis stamp from JustRite stamps I cut it out with my Spellbinders labels 20.  The Birthday circle stamp is from cardz tv  Going in Circles Stamp set and cut with a circle die from HOTP.  I inked it all up with Tim Holtz "old paper" distress ink.  The screw brads are from my stash.  the black stitched circles under the brads at top are from Simon says stamp Stitched dress up tags.
On the inside I simple created a 4X6 printable using a quote from my HOTP 1000 card quotes.  I added the splash of color to help pull it together with the front old paper inking and also added the Happy Birthday part with my computer.  I printed on a 4x6 white cardstock then ran it through my bigshot with the large stitched mat once again.  I cut a few more stitched flags to put at the top.
I will be entering into these fun challenges:

Purple flower thanks card

If you are looking for my Crafty Island Reveal, Click Here

Hello Crafty friends, I am back again today with another Thank you card.  I decided to do some coloring with my spectrum noir pens for this one... sorry I am still learning.
The beautiful stamp is from HOTP set Floral Fantasy.  I used a black glitter embossing powder to stamp the base stamp, I used memento Tuxedo black ink to stamp the top layer of the flower which I fussy cut out just the center to layer on top and I bent up edges to give the flower some depth.  The oval die cut is Spellbinders labels 10.  I used some purple ribbon I got from Karen over at my little scrap pieces.  The polka-dot paper is from a mat stack called Latte from DCWV, which I used a stitched rectangle die cut from Simon says stamp called Bundle of stitched shapes.  Love this die set!!!  That mat is placed directly onto an A4 size white card.  The sentiment stamp is also from HOTP set called Thank you and is stamped directly onto that labels 10 oval with memento tuxedo black ink.  I used my wink of stella pen to accent the flower with a beautiful silvery shimmer.  I added a purple sequin  on each side of the oval adhered directly onto the ribbon with glossy accents.  I then dabbed a bit of purple glitter glue on top of each sequin.  I used  a dragonfly die cut from tiny things with wings set.  I cut it once from purple card stock and then again from a scrap of vellum.  I then took the wink of stella to the entire vellum piece and layered it on top of the purple one.  I bent the wings up on the top dragonfly.
on the inside I used the smaller dragonfly from same die set.  I again used the same  stitched rectangle die cut from Simon says stamp called Bundle of stitched shapes to create not only the large stitched mat but also the smaller stitched rectangle at the top with the polka-dot paper.  The sentiment stamp is again from HOTP set called Thank you and is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink.

I am entering into these fun challenges:
