You're so Tweet!

Happy Tuesday crafty friends! This is my last week of a wonderful four-week vacation, boo. Although I am ready to put the flip flops to the weekends and get back to reality!

I finally got my hands on this older Clearly Besotted stamp set - Some Birdie Loves You! It was backordered for so long!

I am just in-love with these birds! The illustration of the stamps is, in my opinion, the sweetest! I used my Copic Sketch and looked up love birds on google to get the right coloration. I then fussy cut my images. For the background I used my favourite MFT could stencil, this is a must-have in my craft room! The foliage is an older Memory Box die as is the rainbow.  

Once my card was put together with these elements, I stamped the music notes from the Some Birdie Loves You set and white embossed the sentiment (same set) on a Lawn Fawn banner.

I finished my project off with Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets!

Thanks so much for taking the time!

CFC180 - Friendship

Happy Friday crafty peeps! Time for another CAS-ual Friday's Challenge! The theme this time around is Friendship :)

I was so excited to have received my new CAS-ual Friday's stamps in-time for this challenge!

I decided on the new Tutu set for this project in rainbow order nonetheless :) I broke out my Distress Oxides for this one and do they stamp like a dream! I used my Misti to properly line up my ballerina's. Once my stamping was complete I decided to use some black enamel accents to make the flowers pop.

I then decided to use this fantastic sentiment from the Special Delivery stamp set and also added the hearts from the new Puffy Heart Love set. 

I then added some black cardstock to accent the panel, put my card together and the of course, finished with some Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins!

Join us at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog for the chance to win $25 worth of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and, drum roll please... Michelle with double the prize if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps!

Thanks so much for taking the time!

Summer Birthday!

I have so been off the grid over my vacation, my husband went back to work yesterday therefore I now have more time for my craft room over the last of my vacation!

I had such fun making this project, it's a tri-fold birthday "ocean" card.

I started by cutting my Bristol card stock to 5.5 x 12 I then used a mix of Distress Inks on the entire background. On top I used a Hero Arts waves stencil with the same Distress Inks mix I then sprayed the entire piece with my Distress sprayer for texture.  I die cut my ocean floor to 12 inches and used a Lawn Fawn Stitched border die for the top. I also used Distress Inks for the impression of sand. I then scored everything at 4inches and then glued my ocean bottom on the base.

For the sharks and fishes I used a mix of Avery Elle's Hello Chum and Lawn Fawn's Duh-Nuh. The colored fish are from Lawn Fawn and the black are by AE in the Hello Chum set.  

I colored all my images with various Copic Sketch markers. The sentiments are from Hello Chum and are embossed in some of my new WOW Glitter embossing powders, this one is Teal. I finished off the project with glossy accents and a sprinkling of sequins! 

The space in the middle panel will be for my message.

Thanks so much for taking the time, I will have more projects up this week!
