Just Saying Hello

I have another fun challenge for today and it is
Memory Box Pretty Purples

The Memory Box dies I have used for this challenge are
Vivienne Butterfly Silhouette ( that's the die you see underneath my butterfly,
I love how it cuts the opening from my purple card stock
with the butterfly image.
and the Stitched Vivienne Butterfly which I don't think is available anymore.
The great thing about this die is it is exactly the same size as the first butterfly die
for a perfect fit!

This is really a pretty card IRL as it is 3D as I have shown below.

The papers used in and out are gorgeous and are 
The Paper Boutique Lavender Fields.

I added some links if interested in any of what I have used...
thanks for stopping by!!

Hoppy Day

Today our new challenge starts at
The Sisterhood of Crafters
with the easiest theme ever "ANYTHING GOES'!
Since I design for two different die stores I try my best
to use stamps whenever I can on my other Design Teams.

I purchased this stamp last year I think along with another
one when it was first released at Spellbinders.
These cutsie stamps always appeal to me.

I stamped her and colored her with Copics.
The sentiment is part of the stamp cute!

Take a peek over at The Sisterhood and see what my 'sistahs' 
have created!  I don't know about you but I do
some of my shopping after seeing what others have created,
or is THAT called enabling lol!!

Flower Wish

 This is my post on the Tutti Designs blog today

Today I am using the Flower Wish die.
A simple die with so many uses it is sure to be a favorite.
This is a great die that can be used for birthdays, get well,
just about any occasion you can think of!

I have three variations and the first one is probably
the fanciest!
I added a pretty designer paper, a sparkle-y bow
and a flower after die cutting and adhering to a dotted rectangle.

The second card I die cut from white card and used copics to
color the flower and stem.
Two strips of card stock were added to each side
with a designer paper in the middle.

The final card I layered one cross stitch rectangle inside
another to make a frame, then used another one to add my wish flower to,
the flower was colored with Copics as well.

 Here are the links to the dies I have used:

Just For Fun Challenges

 Good Saturday morning!
Today I am playing in a couple of challenges that I was able
to combine one card for both!
The first is The Flower Challenge which is to use
your latest stamps or dies.

That worked perfectly for me as I had just received a 'hefty' order from Altenew
and one of the sets were the Fabulous Florets set.
I had seen a card worked up on another blog and it immediately enabled me to
seek it out!

Which brings us to the other challenge, this one being from Altenew themselves!

ON my screen the color looked purple but I see some saw it as a
pinkish color, I saw both used at the challenge so I guess it is how YOU see it on your screen!

I have several of these layering stamps and can't seem to get enough of them
so you are surely to see more here down the road!

The paper I used has spots in it's design and I wish I had been slightly more
careful in my use of it with the spots.  It is from P13.

I also invited my BFF Dar from Dar's Crafty Creations to join me
so be sure to check out her beautiful card as well!

just using a few simple products which I have listed below!

Flower Friends

This is my post on the Tutti Designs blog today: 

Hello Tutti Design fans!

Today I have three different cards using the pretty
Flower Friends die.

For the first card I turned the flower on it's side
showing the word straight on!

I placed it on a cross stitched rectangle
then used another rectangle from the set for my sentiment.

A twine bow and a cute heart button were added to finish. 

For my next card I centered the flower the long way
on a scalloped rectangle,
die cutting the flower from two different papers
then paper piecing one on the other.
Three glitter butterflies were added.

The third card I die cut the flower from white card
then used glitter pens to color both the flower and 'stem',
added a small twine bow and centered it on three layers
of a nesting stitched rectangle.
All links are given below!
