I was inspired by a pinterest of a kitchen aid mixer shape card! It was so adorable.  I decided to scale mine back a bit and use this beautiful glitter paper pack I have been hoarding for years. Most of the patterned paper is from Martha Stewart circa 2010. lol.  Thank goodness no expiration date on patterned paper.

I love the background paper (which is from DCWV) but it is hard to see in photographs! For the final touches I added some spring flowers, butterflies, and bling to give it a little more dimension.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day filled with love and happiness…!!!

Happy Heart Day!

Looking forward to spending the weekend eating lots of chocolate and smelling flowers!

I am back with some fun watercolors again and I am still crazy about this “happy” sentiment die.

I added multiple layers to make the happy sentiment pop up! The top layer was red foil paper which looks so great for a valentine’s day card.

Hope you are spending a wonderful weekend with your loved ones!

Unconventional Valentine’s Day

Something a little different for valentine’s day this year:

I was attempting to make a non-cutesy valentine’s day card and came up with the idea of adding little touches of pink distress inks around the die cut stitched circles:

I really like how soft and subtle the card came out! Aren’t these stitched dies and borders adorable?  To make the happy sentiment, I applied distress inks to the edges and then used two coats of clear embossing powder to give it that “dome” look.

For the final touches I added sequins and gold thread to give it that pop of color! More fun valentine’s day cards to come!
