DL.ART Challenge #179 - Mother's Day

Happy Thursday!! Another week is flying by and the weekend is almost upon us :) It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART and the theme this week is one of my favorites to create cards for: Mother's Day :) Use the code l01210 to get 10% off your order at DL.ART!!


For my Mother's Day cards I used papers from my favorite Lemoncraft stack, Neverending Summer. The edges were all inked with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I stitched the background paper to heavyweight cardstock and distressed the edges with a Zutter DIA.


The layers were each popped up with foam tape for dimension. A Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily die peeks out from the bottom layer. The top layers are Memory Box Mansfield Frame dies. The tag is a LaLa Land Stitched Elements die. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business). The gorgeous ribbon is Whipped Cream from the Creamy Dreamy Bundle.


This stunning ribbon is my favorite, Pink Champagne from the Vintage Vineyard Bundle. Tucked among the Wild Orchid Craft flowers are Elizabeth Craft Curly Leaves and Impression Obsession Pine Sprigs. The beautiful butterfly is a Memory Box Darla die covered with Sparkle N Sprinkle Crystal Ice.


I am entering these in the following challenges:

1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Pause, Dream Enjoy Linky - Anything Goes

Hearts in Heart Shaker Card

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog today, and I have a couple of cards to share with you using several Die-Versions dies.


The beautiful papers are from Craft and You Designs (from Poland). When I first saw the Whispers Hearts in Heart die, I thought it would make a beautiful shaker element on a card, so I turned it into one using chunky iridescent glitter. I added a smaller Wee Petites Heart Doodle covered in glitter to the top.


A Whispers Ring of Hearts die and a Whispers Stitched Nesting Circles die were added behind the heart, as was a Whispers Heart Border die. The beautiful ribbons are from DL.ART.


A Sweet Wordlet Happy and Sweet Wordlet Birthday die was used for this sentiment for this card.


A Sweet Wordlet Happy and Sweet Worldet Mother's Day was used for this one.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll come back tomorrow...I have some exciting news to share with you!! Have a great day :)

Scrapy Land Challenge #40 - Oh Happy Spring

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! This is my second post of the day...you can scroll down to see my April tag for the 12 Tags of 2016 challenge. It's time for another fun challenge at Scrapy Land!! The theme this week is Oh Happy Spring PLUS a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries (there are over 40 to choose from!!). You could win a $15 gift certificate to shop at Scrapy Land :)


For my cards I wanted to invoke thoughts of a couple in love, taking a springtime stroll in a park, stealing a kiss (actually, I really just wanted to use my new Tattered Lace Lamp Post die ;) The papers are from Annabell's Meadow from Wild Rose Studio. I used DecoArt Crackle Paste through a Prima Flourish stencil.


The bouquet of flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The gorgeous ribbon is from DL.ART, with a Poppystamps Stitched Button die on top. The tag is a La-La Land Stitched Elements die. The sentiments are from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).


Tucked among the blooms are Elizabeth Craft Curvy Leaves dies, Impression Obsession Open Scroll Vine dies, and Sue Wilson Dandelion Clock dies.


The couple are a Frantic Stamper Kissing Couple. I cut them once in black for a shadow and once in white and covered them with Sparkle N Sprinkle Crystal Ice glitter. The are standing on Poppystamps Grassland Border die. The butterflies fluttering about are Impression Obsession Butterfly Set dies, also covered with SNS Crystal Ice.


To give the Tattered Lace Lamp Post die a rusted look, I covered it with Ranger Antiquities Rust Embossing Powder.


On the inside, I used a Spellbinders Curved Borders One die and an Impression Obsession Medium Butterfly die.
