Pin It

Hello!!
I'm stopping in to share the New Inky Paws Challenge w/ Newton's Nook Designs!! I just LOVE Sketches and ALL of the different ways you can interpret them!! I've used the Beautiful Bloosoms Stamp Set and I used a Rectangle instead of a Square as my focal base for my design!!

 I also only used One Banner and Layered it up and then added my May Arts Black Burlap Twine Bow and a Vintage Button to finish it off!! I Stamped and Embossed the Daisy Image ontp some Distress Water Color Paper and then used my Distress Markers to color it in!! I wanted a FULL Daisy so I layered 3 of the together and I LOVE the look it gives to them!! I Die Cut a Rectangle Frame from MFT from some Wood Grain Paper and used Foam Tape to add it to my Card!! The Flags were Die Cut using a Paper Smooches Flag Tags Die Set!! I Cut one from Patterned Paper and one from Vellum and Layered them for a FUN Look!!
I hope you'll join us in the FUN for a chance to WIN!! For the FULL Details Please visit the Newton's Nook Designs Blog!!

Pin It

Hello!!
I'm stopping in to share a card I've made for my First Ever Little Tangles Challenge 55: Sequins!! I have been a FAN of Neat and Tangled since they first started, but I have never really had enough time to join in on their Challenges, and I made a Vow to try and play along!! =) So after I FELL in LOVE with the New Dala Horse Stamp Set and the Coordinating Dala Die Set I just KNEW I had to join in the FUN and create a Dala Horse Shaker Card!! I grew up with horses and have ridden my whole life so when I saw this set I just had to have it and I've already made several cards!! =) I LOVE that there are SO MANY ways that you can use this set!! =) I decided to make this a Shaker Card and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I used a MFT Circle Die to create my Shaker Window Shape and then I Die Cut the Dala Horses from some BEAUTIFUL My Mind's Eye Patterned Paper!! I Inked the edges to define them and then created a FUN Scene for inside my Shaker Window!! To add alittle Sparkle I finished things of with a combination of some Iridescent Light Green Sequins and some Crystal Seed Beads!! I stamped and embossed my sentiment in White Embossing Powder and I LOVE the way it turned out!! =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!

Hello!!
I'm stopping in to share the Card I've made for the 1st Gossip Column Challenge over on the Winnie & Walter Blog!! I was drawn by several of the Images and the Different Blue Colors along with the Toasted Almond Color!! I decided to used one of the Newly Released The Party Stamp Set and I Stamped and Embossed my design onto some Tim Holtz Distress Water Color Paper!! I used the New Lawn Fawn Navy Ink along with some Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder!! In the one Dress above it shows the Shine on the Strips and it made my think to use the Platnium Embossing Powder as a Play on that Shine and then I used the Distress Marker in Linen to color in the Tassels!! I used the Lawn Fawn Ink and just added some Water in order to Water Color the Pom-Poms and I just LOVE how BEAUTIFUL this Color is!! WOWOWOWOWOW!! All these different shades were achieved by just using the Lawn Fawn Ink!! I'm in LOVE!! SWOON!! =) I added some Platinum Embroidery Thread and a strip of MFT Navy Cardstock that I inked using the same Lawn Fawn Navy Ink and the Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder!! A couple Sequins and my Card was done!!

This set is SUPER FUN and I think there are SO MANY occasions that this set can be used for!! I decided to create a FUN Circle Window Card!! I wanted to have the Fence and Grass Images behind my Sweet Bunny Image so I created some Masks in order to Stamp the seamless design!! I also knew I wanted to Water Color my card so I Stamped and Embossed everything on to some Distress Water Color Paper!! I used my Distress Markers to Water Color everything and I just really LOVE how these work for layering!! I used Foam Tape to add my Bunny and then I added the Window Panel on top with Foam Tape too!! I Stamped my Sentiment along with a FUN Border of Flowers around the Bottom Half of the Window!! I Water Colored it all of the Images and added a Sweet Little Bird and then I thought it need some SPARKLE!!?? So I Colored over the Flowers and the Bird with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!

Hello!!
Welcome back to the Paper Sweeties April Release Rewind!!
I decided to play along with a Sparkle & Shine Challenge Four with this Card for today!! I decided to create a REALLY BEAUTIFUL Purple Tree!! From the time I can remember these Purple Trees have been one of my most FAVORITE Things about Spring!! =) I LOVE driving around the Country and seeing them in ALL of their Glory once they star to Bloom!! If you've NEVER seen these trees here is a Picture I found on the Internet to share with you!! Now Picture these scattered EVERYWHERE and you can probably TOTALLY understand why I LOVE these SO MUCH!! =)


                                                         Tree Of Life
I Die Cut a Circle for the Main Body of my Tree then I added Distress Ink in Seedless Preserves and then Splattered it with Water and some Iridescent Spray!! I Stamped and Die Cut the Leaves and then added some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker onto to make them Sparkle!! =) I Stamped and Die Cut the Flowers and Colored them with the same Distress Ink then used the Flower Sequins to create the Centers!! A Tiny Pearl Seed Bead finishes them off!! I Stamped and Die Cut the Sweet Little Bird and Colored it with Distress Ink and added more Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker!! I Layered it all together and I just LOVE the way it turns out!! =) I Stamped and Die Cut the Tree Trunk and the Grass and then the Sweet Little Tire Swing!! =) I added some Burlap String to make it look like the one I had when I was growing up!! Put it altogether following the Sketch and my card was done!!
