Glorious Dies! Challenge

Good Morning, I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! It is a beautiful sunshiny day here, it looks and feels like Spring! This is a project that I did at the beginning of the month with my wonderful Hostess Group girls, and it is perfect for the challenge over on the A Muse Studio Consultants Challenge Blog. This week it is all about our wonderful dies!! I created this project using our Candy Box and Cutout Set, and Vintage Labels 1 set of dies. I also used this beautiful butterfly stamp set, Papillion, and some Buttercup Petite Polka Dot paper for the box. I shared a technique with this project on how to use a die cut shape, like this label, but have your stamped image continue outside of the cut edge, without doing a lot of fussy cutting. A fun and easy technique with a lot of impact!!
Have a great day, so glad you stopped by!

Thank You Challenge

The A Muse Studio Consultant Challenge blog is changing things up! We will be running our challenges for two weeks at a time now so you have more time to join in the fun! There are prizes for each challenge and you can enter as many new projects as you would like, I hope that you will pop over to the blog and check it out. Our challenge this time is "Thank You" cards. My card was made using Sugar and Buttercup papers along with Papaya Ink. Stamps are from Mod Backgrounds 2 and Thank You Mix. Flowers were cut from Buttercup Felt using Flower Die Set # 1. Stems are Lime 1/4" grosgrain stitched ribbon. A pumpkin button with toffee twine was added to the flower center. Love how this card turned out, it could easily be used for any occasion simply by changing the sentiment too!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you are having a wonderful day today!

Softpencil Studio Blog Hop!

I was so excited when Elizabeth from Softpencil Studios invited me to join in on her blog hop, how fun! I have purchased several of Elizabeth's Rubber stamps from my good friend Diana at Latina Crafter, they are such sweet, fun, and happy designs.  I am in the first group starting today, and going until the 15th. Follow the hop and leave comments along the way and you could win a prize!

Here is my card, I had so much fun coloring this image, its so sweet, its called "Growing Flowers in Pots" and you can find it in Elizabeth's online store. Sentiment is from a retired TAC set. I made the flower from several layers of organza fabric that I cut using my die cutting tool, then kind of melted / shrunk the edges with my heat tool after attaching the layers together with a brad. I will be making more of these, I love how it turned out! Papers are from My Minds Eye Lime Twist collection, and were actually leftovers from an Easter project, but so perfect for this image!!
I hope that you will stop by the other participants and leave a comments along the way, so you will be eligible for the prize drawing!! Don't forget to stop by the Softpencil Studio Blog too and see all her wonderful new designs, and products!

Anything But a Card!!

This week I am hosting the challenge over on the A Muse Studio Consultant Challenge Blog !! My challenge is to create Anything But a Card! Cards are fabulous, I love to make them, but I wanted to show how easy it is to use all our wonderful supplies to create even more! For this challenge I created this fun  flower photo/card holder. Quick and easy to make, I think this will be a fun way to display some Spring cards at my workshops. I used A Muse Petite Polka Dots Papers in Buttercup and Bermuda, Gingham paper in Orange, for the flower base. I used the same colors in solid colored card stocks to create the centers for each flower with  a die from cupcake toppers die set. I turned the 6 petal flower into a 5 petal flower to give it some dimension. Then I added the smallest flower from Flower #1 die set, cut from vanilla felt, topped with a button, the center. The leaves are actually one of the flag/banner dies from the Cupcake Toppers Die set. I love to use my stamp and die sets in as many ways as I can!
Hop on over to The Challenge Blog and take a look at the other creations from the design team. I would love if you would play along too, there will be a prize drawing at the end of the week, you can check out the details on the Challenge Blog too!
Thanks for stopping by, hope that you are having a lovely day!! :)

It's All About the Dies

This weeks challenge on The Amuse Studio Consultants Challenge Blog is all about Dies! Personally, dies are one of my most favorite tools and I use them on almost every project, weather it is Nestabilities or our exclusive A Muse Studio dies. It is rare that I create something that doesn't have a die cut of some kind on it.
This card was a special thank you card I made using Script Background on Sugar Cardstock with Blush ink. I added a sentiment from Wild Rose and layered it with some Nestabilities ovals and Label #4 dies. Then I added a few daises with  my new A Muse Flower#1 dies.
I made a couple little gift items to go along with my thank you card and dressed them up with the same papers and dies!
I hope that you will pop over to the Challenge blog and take a look at all the great ideas that the other gals have come up with. It would be great if you joined in the fun to, add your own creation using die cuts and link it using the linky tool, and be entered in the prize drawing!!

Have a great day, so glad you stopped by! :)
