MCT Designer Challenge

Hi crafty friends & happy Thursday!!

Today starts a new challenge over at the My Creative Time blog!
For this challenge, we are using the following color palette for our inspiration.


Here is the card that I made based on those colors:


For my card I used the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die and popped it up onto my card front using some foam adhesive. I cut out my Hello from the Speech Bubble Sentiments from some dark pink cardstock. I then used the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies to cut out some flowers from the same dark pink cardstock as well as some peach cardstock. I also used two different greens for my leaves. 

Don't forget to stop  by the My Creative Time blog to see all the fabulous projects that my design team sisters created and enter the challenge! I would love to see what you create!

PDE Linky Party #15

Happy Tuesday!
Are you guys ready for the start of another great linky party at


Rules:
1) New projects only
2) Follow the theme
3) Any type of crafting welcome
4) Unlimited times to link up
5)  Have fun & Follow us at PDELinkyParty!

Here is the card that I created for this Linky Party:

For my card, I used a card base that I found in the Silhouette Store titled, 3D Stand Up Card: Birthday Balloons by Lori Whitlock (Design ID 57239). I used a total of 8 patterned papers on my card!! The best part is most of them were scraps!! I finished off the balloons by adding some little bows that I tied from some embroidery floss. I added a few gems and a sentiment and Voila! A cute little card that literally took minutes to make :) 

Here is a side view: 

The best part is that the fold at the bottom allows the card to fold flat for easy mailing :)
Gotta love that!!

My Creative Time: Scrapping The Little Things

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!

Today at the My Creative Time blog, it is Scrapping The Little Things.
This is the day that we create a scrapbook page, smash book page or a project life page. 
Today we are showing you layouts based on the following sketch:


I am just getting into Project Life (PL) and as soon as I saw the above sketch, a insert for my PL album came to mind.


For my PL card, I used the Stitched 4x6 Journal die for my base. Then I started building the top portion of my card. I cut out a square from black cardstock and another from the yellow patterned paper and layered them on top of each other. I then used one of the circles from the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies for my floral circle. I stamped my title onto some white cardstock using a stamp from the Way To Go set and just cut the ends to resemble a banner. I layered that onto a piece of  patterned paper and then very carefully, hand cut it out so that it lined up with the white cardstock.  For the bottom half of my PL card, I used that adorable little bike from the Way To Go set. I love that little bike!!

Thanks so much for stopping my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I appreciate it so much!!

My Creative Time: Try Me Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!
Today over at the My Creative Blog, it is Try Me Tuesday!
Today we are showing you cards that are made in the "slide puzzle" design. 
You know those puzzles with the sliding pieces and the picture is all jumbled up until you figure out the puzzle by sliding the pieces into the correct spots? That's the look that this technique brings to your cards. 
You can see a video on this technique by clicking HERE.

Here is the card that I created using this technique:



For my flowers, I used the flower stamp from the Fun Pockets set and randomly stamped that onto some white cardstock with VersaMark and then heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. After it was embossed, I took some ink and rubbed it all over my card. I took a paper towel and wiped over the top of my card once I had inked it to reveal my flowers.  Once I had all my pieces cut and adhered to my card front, I cut out my frame and stamped the border by using the Fancy Frame Stamp & Die Set. My greeting came from the More Of My Favorite Sayings stamp set. I popped it up with some foam adhesive and added a few green gems. I love trying new techniques and I am so happy with the end result of my card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

My Creative Time's Inspiration Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday crafty friends!

It is Inspiration Wednesday over at the My Creative Time blog!
This is the day where we create a project based on something that has inspired us.

For my card today, I was inspired by my super talented DT sister, Miss Lee-Ann!
When I saw her card that she made for the Day 1 of the June Sneak Peeks, I fell in love with it!
I loved how she did the partial die-cutting and I loved the overall design of the card! 
You can see her card by clicking HERE

Here is the card that I created:

For my card, I used the "Hello"and the "Beautiful"  from the Speech Bubble Sentiments set. I added that fun scallop edge by using one of the dies from the Fun Stitched Edges set. Those super pretty butterflies came from the Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies set. I added a bit of sparkle to my butterflies by using my Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush pen as well as some bling down the middle of each butterfly. 

A huge THANK YOU to Lee-Ann for allowing me to use her beautiful card for my inspiration project!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation!
