Wishing You Happiness

Happy Tuesday!! I hope all of my US friends had a safe and happy Memorial Day!! Wow, can you believe it's almost June??!! The year is half over and I don't know where the first half went!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a couple of cards to share with you today using the new Whispers Vintage Sign from the May Release :)


I wanted these cards to look like the vintage signs were hanging in a flower garden. I used a combination of several Die-Versions dies. The papers are from Prima's Nature's Garden stack and the edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.


For the backgrounds, I used my all-time favorite Whispers Bricks Background die. Seriously, I love this die so much...it's definitely one of my most-used dies. Beneath the cluster of flowers is a Whispers Ring of Hearts die.


The Vintage Sign was popped up with foam tape. The dragonfly is a Wee Petites Buggy die. It was cut twice, with the top layer covered with sugar coating. A Whispers Butterfly Garden die was added along the bottom. The butterflies were fussy-cut and covered with sugar coating.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. DL.Art - May Linky
2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Celebrate Father's Day

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It's my turn again to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a couple of cards to share with you today using one of the awesome new dies from the May 2015 release.


I don't create many masculine cards, so I was so excited to see the new Whispers Vintage Motorcycle die from the latest release!! It's perfect for a masculine birthday card or for Father's Day...so I've made one of each.


A Whispers Circles Background was used for the base. The Vintage Motorcycle was cut in silver foil so that it would shine :)


Happy Birthday is a Corner Concepts die. The star is a Wee Petites Super Stars die.


For this card, the Whispers Circles Background was cut in silver foil. Celebrate is an Express Banner die.The two star bursts and the stars along the top are Wee Petites Super Stars dies.


A Sweet Spots Angel Wing Scalloped Circle was used for the sentiment, which was created with the A Little Mint Font set.
