Hi, Friends!

For my card today, I am featuring the Sweet Mini/Celebrate set!  Such a fun set with the yummy cupcakes and the sentiment with the large font!  I gold embossed the sentiment and the sprinkles on the cupcakes were colored with copics.  Plaid paper under the sentiment for color.  I added ribbon, button, and gold color shine spray for the finishing touch.  I haven't used buttons in ages, but did love the bright yellow flower to bring out more color for the card.

Dies R Us Challenge September 15, 2021(Anything Goes!)




It's the 15th and time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is Anything Goes!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge that Dies R Us sells!  Please come and join the fun and have a chance to win!

I have a spooky card for you today!  Usually I don't do spooky cards, but I did make one of them to share with you today.  Actually, I prefer cute Halloween cards.  And, I think the inside of the card is less spooky with a darling black cat!




For my card, I started with a purple card base and paired it with a die cut panel using Lawn Fawn Zig Zig Rectangle Stackables.  The next panel was made using water colors from Altenew.  The house, pumpkins, and bat images are from IO.  The hill was made using the pond die from Lawn Fawn.  I just turned it more vertical for a high hill.  Black embossing powder and stickles on the hill for a more spooky feel to the scene.  Dots to finish the card.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, also.  Acrylic white paint was applied to the edges of the pumpkins for interest.  




The darling black cat and sentiment are from MFT.



The links for the dies are listed below...

Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts 


It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!



My teammates have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project)

Paper Sweeties September 2021-Featured Products Inspiration Day #1!





Hi, Friends!

Welcome to September Featured Products Inspiration Day #1!  We are highlighting the Sweet Mini sets this month!  And, you can Save 10% on SWEET MINI SETS all month long in September using coupon: SweetMini!!

I just love the fall stamp image from the set Sweet Mini/Sweater Weather.  Soon fall will be upon us and I'm ready for it!  Fall is my favorite season!  I decided to use some of my favorite fall colors for the card as seen below.



For my card, I started with a blue card base and paired it with paper from Lawn Fawn.
The background of the circle was sponged with DI.  Nuvo gold drops were added to the scallops of the circle.  Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders were die cut for blue, orange, and fuschia scallop borders.  Sequins of creamsicle and raspberry and creamsicle ribbon were added for interest.  And, gold color shine spray was used for the finishing touch.

Thank you!



Hi, there!

It's a beautiful September day here in NW Ohio!  It's 77 degrees with a slight breeze...just perfect!  My kind of weather...yeah!  How's things your way?  I hope you are all doing well!  I've been quite busy with DT assignments.  I have quite a few projects that will be revealed next week for Paper Sweeties 4th Quarter Sweet Kit!  Fun fall and winter creations!  Here is a little peek of one card...





Now back to today.  I made the first and last cards a couple of months ago at a crop with friends.  I like to make simple cards to have on hand when needed.  The first card was made using MFT butterflies.  The sentiment is from PTI.  And, the scalloped panel was made using a Mama Elephant die.  

Next up, is a card I made using Sweet 'n Sassy flower images.  They were colored with copics and gems added to the centers.




Ok, well, that's all for now.  Take care and enjoy the rest of the week!  Happy Labor Day to all my friends in the USA!

Hugs!

Dies R Us Challenge September 1, 2021(Anything Goes!)



Hi, there!

Happy September 1st!  Where did the summer go?  It always seems to go by too quickly!  

It's time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  All you have to do is use a brand of die that Dies R Us sells...easy peasy!  So, please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate...enjoy creating! 

For today's card, I made an ink blended sky with warm colors.  Two dies were also used with different frames.  



I started with a cream card base.  The rectangle frame is from IO and the sunflower die is from Memory Box.  The die comes with an outline of the sunflower.  I could have placed it under the flower for dimension, but I decided to place it in the top corner.  I didn't add color to it for I wanted the main sunflower to shine.  I did use a baby wipe to wipe off some of the ink background for interest.  Gems and a pearl cotton bow to finish the card.  



  All dies that were used for my card with links are listed below.  I hope you create a project using dies and join us for the challenge!




Dies R Us has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts



It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

Mr. & Mrs....




Hi, there!

How's things in your part of the world?  I hope you all are doing well!  We've had some happy celebrations going on in our family.  The above photo shows Hailey(my great-niece) and her husband, Alec who married on 8-7-21.  I don't think I posted a photo of them yet or the card I made for them.  My memory isn't what it used to be, lol!  



The stamp images are from Sweet 'n Sassy.  The colors of the wedding were lavender.  I just love these stamp images and plan to use it once again for a wedding in October.  


These two surprised all when they cut the cake!  I thought this sweet couple would be very nice, but they had a good time with smearing it on their faces.  I think Alec got the worst of it, lol!  Alec is a triplet and has a younger brother, too.  They all made speeches at the wedding, so fun!  And, one of Hailey's sisters and best friend made a speech.  To top it off, my nephew, Dean, who is the father of the bride made the final speech.  I never heard so many speeches at a wedding!  But, it was super fun and very enjoyable!

Another great celebration in the family is a great niece born on 8-13-21....Reagan Irene.  Such a blessing and so precious!!




Ok, well, that's all for now.  I hope you all are having a wonderful summer.  
Take care, hugs!!
