I made this card awhile ago and realized I had not shared it on the blog yet. This Lawn Fawn Science of Love set makes me smile. I made this card for my hubby.

Hope you're having a good weekend. We've been busy with lots of family activities so I'm just popping in quickly to say hi!!

Heart Parade

Have you seen the Heart Parade die from Simon Says Stamp?  I love this die! I made a couple cards using this die and the die cut inlay technique. Here is what I came up with.

I also used DCWV Glitter card stock for the hearts. I really like this paper because you get the awesome look of glitter without all the mess.  :)

I hope you're having a great week and thanks for stopping by!

ABNH Challenge #47 Color It In

It's been a long time since I've played along with A Blog Named Hero challenge so I thought I'd give it a shot. The challenge is: Color It In.

I created this card using one of my favorite Hero Arts (OWH) stamp sets called Missing You and also used a Paper Smooches set called Warm Hearts for the trees. I colored the bird and trees with Copics. I used glitter paper to create the wire that the bird is resting on. I also added glossy accents to the bird's beak and eyes, as well as to the heart on the tree.

Have you played along with the challenge yet? I hope so!

Birthday Balloons

I bought these balloon dies from Simon Says Stamp a few weeks ago and decided to try them out with some glitter paper. I die cut some of the balloons and I also used the negative space as the panel of my card. I stamped over it with an older Hero Arts background stamp (called Large Plaid Pattern) with the mid-tone soft granite ink before adding the balloons. To fill in the negative space, I just placed some glitter paper behind the balloon cut outs (the yellow and blue/teal balloon). The strings and the greeting came from the Hero Arts Perfect Day set.

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great week!

I Love Owls

I've said this before,but I'm going to say it again. This Hero Arts Missing You (OWH) stamp set is one of my favs! I think all the images are adorable, especially the owl. I colored the owls with Copic markers and then added them on top of the Lawn Fawn paper. Simple, but I still like it.  :)  Have you heard that Hero Arts is making dies for this set now? I can't wait to order them!

Hope your week is off to a great start!

Hello Sunshine!

Wow, I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted. Apparently I've been neglecting the poor ol' blog.  :) 

This was a quick and simple card to make. Not much to say about it, other than I used some Lawn Fawn paper for the tag and both the greeting and sun are from a Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Pure Sunshine set.

I was thinking of my nephew when I made this card because he's always smiling. Here is a pic of his adorable sunshiney face.  :)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is full of sunshine and smiles!

Sunflowers - Part 2

Hello! Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted something. I've been so busy lately that I haven't had much time for making cards. I made a couple more sunflower cards a while ago but had not posted them yet. I really love this Lawn Fawn set and decided to try the sunflowers in purple. :)  I colored them with Copic markers. I used an older Hero Arts set called Sending Smiles for the watering can and gardening tool.

I also had more sunflowers that I had colored earlier, so I made another card. I was trying to use up some of the leftovers that I had on my desk -- which included a strip of paper that I had embossed with embossing paste and a stencil. 

Anyway, I hope you're week is off to a great start!  Thanks for dropping by!
