Sparkling Smile

I finally had a chance to ink up this set and it is just so much fun! Using White Embossing Powder for the letters helps them to pop out and the raised effect makes it all the more realistic. I wanted a little pop of color and Melon Mambo provided it beautifully. I embellished it with sparkling Rhinestone Basic Jewels colored with the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends marker because the inside sentiment reads, “ Your sparkle has not gone unnoticed.” The letter board is perfectly sized to fit the Layering Squares Framelits, which makes this card not only super cute, but super easy, too, as I die cut it out and popped it up on Dimensionals. I should’ve taken a sideways photo so you can see it. Super fun!

Amazing Balloon Celebration

I am so in love with the font of the sentiment “celebrate” in the Sale-a-Bration set Amazing You. I’m foreseeing a LOT of Birthday cards featuring it! Sometimes I forget about the extra dies in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set, so when I decided on the banner in it, my eyes drifted onto the die that makes a row of circles. Perfect for that extra little pop of shine! This card makes me especially happy since it features the colors of my Alma Mater, Lakeshore Public Schools – Go Big Red!

Glimmer of Sweet Sugarplum

I wanted the thank you cards for my club ladies to feature the awesome glimmer paper from the Sale-a-Bration (SAB) second release. I also thought it would be nice to feature one of the SAB stamp sets. Avant Garden was one of the sets that I had skimmed over, thinking “Do I really need another flower stamp?”. But after Hunter looked through the brochure, that was her first choice. So…as a good parent, I simply had to get it, right?  The cards I made are a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from Kylie Bertucci’s blog. She is so talented!  You can see her post here:  http://www.craftykylie.com/2017/02/kylies-international-highlights-winners.html

Falling for Dragonfly Dreams

I finally received my Stampin’ Up preorder with the Dragonfly Dreams bundle! Anyone that knows me knows I LOVE DRAGONFLIES!  In fact, that is the theme in my living room and I even have a framed display of 4 real ones (purchased prior to me becoming vegan, LOL). As you can guess, the second I saw there were dragonflies in the 2017 Occasions catalog, it was over! I also bought the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper. It’s marketed in the catalog with the wedding themed items, but it is soft and beautiful with the dragonflies. I have fallen in love with it!

I stamped the detailed dragonfly stamp in Versamark on Vellum cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After die cutting it out, the wings curled up a LOT. So I decided to use the dragonfly framelit die to cut a matching one out to glue behind the vellum. The large dragonflies and the sentiment banners are popped up with dimensionals. This makes my heart happy!
