For this 6 inch by 6 inch card I started with Kraft card stock to make the base of the card.  I took the Floral patterned paper and attached that to the card base.  I took the Elizabeth Craft Designs Dragonfly die and some of the iridescent paper and cut out the three dragonflies.  I took some Purple glitter paper and the Serendipity Happy die and cut out Happy and added that to the card.  I took some more of the Purple glitter paper and the Serendipity Birthday die and cut out Birthday and added that to the card.  I took the Dragonflies and placed them on the card around the Happy Birthday.

Hello

Hi Blogging Friends!!


It is my turn today on the Dies R Us Blog and I am sharing this beach card because I am not ready for the summer to end!!




For this A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.   I took a piece of blue marble paper, inked the edges with Faded Jeans distress ink and added that to the base of the card.  I took the Coral paper and the Frantic Stamper Freeform Wave die and cut out the paper, I added that to the Sand paper, I fussy cut along the top edge of the paper and then inked the edge with Brown ink and added that to the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Desert Storm paper and cut out the Impression Obsession Shell die set and cut out the shells and starfish.  I used a blending brush to apply Shaded Lilac distress oxide to one of the shells, Abandoned Coral distress oxide to the starfish and Tattered Rose distress oxide to the other shell.  Then I sprayed them Perfect Pearls Biscotti Mist and when they were dry I added them to the card.  I took the Coral paper and the Serendipity Hello die and cut it out three times, stacked the hello on top of each other and then covered it with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder twice and then added that to the card.  I just had to make a beachy card because I am not ready for the summer to end!

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challegne ~ Paper Piecing

Hello Blogging Friends!!


I saw that there is a
challenge for paper piecing over on  The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Blog so I had to pull out one of my quilt dies and get busy!



Here are my cards:












I used a Gina Marie Designs Quilt Die #3 Flower Burst and four different sheets of paper.  I cut each of the pieces of paper with the Flower Burst die and then pieced them together and made the four cards.  I took the Memory Box Stitched Heart Layers dies and some pink patterned paper and cut out the hearts with the pink paper and added them to the middle of the quilt.  I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Windy Background die on the background paper and an old Stampin' Up sentiment and a Jillian Vance quilt sentiment.  


I am entering these cards in the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge ~ Paper Piecing.


Now hop on over to The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge ~ Paper Piecing to see what everyone has made for this challenge!
