Happy Birthday!



Hi, there!

I'm just popping in quick to share with you a card made for
City Crafter!  We are to case Ros's card!  And, oh what a fun card with the music notes and the cute cat with a party hat...so fun!

Here is my card...


I used a roller stamp with music notes, washi tape, and a trio of stamp images.  The birthday sentiment and gems to finish the card.  I'm getting this card in just under the wire...whew!  But, couldn't resist making a birthday card similar to Ros's!  Thanks so much for the inspiration, Ros!

Thank you for dropping by today!  Take care and have a great week!

Hugs,
Maria

Paper Sweeties April 2017-Release Rewind!



Hi, there!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Release Rewind!  Today we share with you a project with new stamps/dies combined with previous released stamps/dies.  But, before I get to my card, I want to wish you a very Happy Easter!  I hope you have a wonderful blessed day!


I couldn't let the day go by without having an Easter project to share.  Here is a candy treat bag that I made with an adorable bunny!



The bunny, eggs, and banner are from the set Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter and die cut with coordinating die Sweet Cuts-Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter.  They were gold embossed and colored with copics.

Next up are my cards using the awesome new Sweet Cuts-Square Scallop Frames dies that were released this month!  I just love these scallop frames.  I can see myself using them for many projects! I made several cards using the frames and showcasing several new sentiments from the newly released Love You to Pieces sentiments set. The previously released products for my cards that were used are the flowers from the set Thinking of You and die cut with Sweet Cuts-Thinking of You.  The stitched banner die cut is from Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  Sequins (Cookie Dough) were added for interest.  I added squiggly die cuts from the same sweet cuts-sweet borders set for the last two cards.  I couldn't make up my mind to add it to the first card, too.  I already took the photo and thought...well, maybe either way...what do you think?  And, here are my cards...

Dies R Us Challenge-April 15, 2017(Tags)




Hi, friends!

It's time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is Tags!  You can use a tag on your card or make a separate tag.  I decided to make a spring card with a tag.  So, it's easy peasy!  Please get out those tag dies and make a project to join the fun!

For my card, I started with a white card base and embossed it with a folder from Darice.  The fancy scalloped circle dies are from Lawn Fawn.  The chick and egg are from Memory Box.  The Grass edger dies is from Frantic Stamper.  And, the tag die is from Poppy Stamps.  The buttons are from SU.  The sentiment and sign is from Paper Sweeties.  PTI rain drops to finish the card.  The dies that I used on this card are listed below...



 There are so many choices at Dies R Us store!  And, new items are added all the time!  I'd love to see your project in the challenge using tags...happy creating!

Would you like more inspiration?  Check out some amazing creations from my talented teammates!

Paper Sweeties April 2017-Release Party!



Hi, there!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Release Party!  Today is the day for you to purchase those awesome new stamps!  I have another colorful project for you today using the new crayon stamps/dies!  Who doesn't love color?  I sure do!

And, here is my card...



Remember getting new school supplies?  Those new pack of crayons were so fun to get in my hot little hands!  I've always loved to color since I can remember!  So, this stamp/die set brings back many happy memories for me!

For the star background on my card, I used the set Be Happy.  The crayon stamps and dies along with the sentiment are from You add color to my Life/Sweet Cuts-You add color to my Life.  The crayons were colored with SU colored pencils.  I wrote the colors on the crayons with my copic multiliner.  Twine to finish the card.
