Crazy In Love

There's a new challenge starting today over at Poppystamps and this month we're Crazy In Love! We want to see your interpretation on this theme and you have all month long to play.

I decided to make my card masculine. That means no pink, glitter or lace and such.

I inked up my background with Distress Inks in Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover and Peacock Feathers and gave it one spritz with Perfect Pearls and a few flicks of water.

I die cut the new Shimmering Heart Border 4 times and adhered it to a white panel. Then I took all the hearts that were die cut from the background and added them back in throughout the design.

The sentiment is from the Be Mine Penguin stamp set and it was white embossed on black card stock and layered onto vellum. I finished off with one red heart.

I hope to see your projects over at Poppystamps and don't forget that the winner will receive a die from the new release!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Merry Snowflakes

I've been trying to make my card designs quite flat for the holidays. I don't know about you but I like to foam mount a lot of my images onto the card base, I love the dimension it gives to the finished card. But, I find these cards don't fit into standard envelopes and then I have to custom make envelopes and that takes extra time during this busy season.

This is one of the card designs I came up with.


I did an ombre watercolour background and ran it through my die cutting machine with the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Quilted Embossing Folder. Love the depth and texture of the embossing.


I die cut two Poppystamps Snowflake Ribbons from glitter card stock and finished off with a Poppystamps sentiment (retired).

A flat card to mail and one that is easy to make.

Thanks for visiting with me today!
