Dazzling Divas #36 - Ornament

This week for the Dazzling Divas it's all about making an ornament.  I had so much fun making mine!  It's dedicated to Add a Little Dazzle owner, Monica!

Yep, that's me on the left and Monica on the right.  I had the pleasure of meeting her and her family while they were visiting here in Arizona.  It's so fun to actually meet fellow stampers in person!  She looks exactly like her avatar, so I had no problem recognizing her at the restaurant. :).

For my ornament I used the beautiful colors Dark Rich Chocolate Metal Craft Sheet and Brushed Copper Metal Craft Sheet.  With the help from Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament, and Layered Pointsettia, I was able to make this fun ornament.  The metal is perfect for being able to stand the ornament up, or hang - which ever way you prefer.  Here is a closer view.

Cardabilities #104

I am excited to say that Karan approved me for yet another term for Cardabilities!  You'll be seeing my cards using her awesome sketches through October!! [Thanks Karan]

I mixed distressed ink and embossing paste to get the colored embossed background.  I love that you can make paste any color.  My Favorite Things die-namics got used for today's card; Layered Rose, Doily Duo, Notched Bordrer, Washi Tape and Notebook Edge.  My sentiment is from Avery Elle, Simply Said Hello.  Gosh I love these sketches!  Really makes me think to create!

Are you inspired by the sketch?  I sure hope you pop on over to Cardabilities, check out the Team samples [wow], and play along!  We can't wait to see your take!

Heartfelt Creations July Alumni Hop

It's the fun time of month -Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop. I am starting out the hop this month!  How fun for me, and so much eye candy for all of YOU.


Perusing blogland this week, I came across a super fun technique; pouncing with reinkers.  Using shiny paper, I embossed the image from Sun Kissed Fleur Swirls PreCut Set.  Then, I used re-inkers and pounced around the images.  I die cut flowers from Sun Kissed Fleur Die, stamped flowers using Sun Kissed Fleur PreCut Set and embossed them in gold,  Using pop dots, I adhered the flowers to the base panel and added gems to the flower centers.  For my sentiment, I used Door to My Heart PreCut Set.  I made 2 cuts from my Silhouette and stamped the sentiment - added a bow, and adhered my panel to the card base.  
Another successful month!

Do you remember the drill?  Hop along, leaving comments on all the blogs, and 1 random picked winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to Heartfelt Creations!

Have fun hopping~

Some Super Fun Challenges!

I had some extra time today and joined in a few challenges;  AEIHeartU; die cut and AE stamp or image, Die-Namites July Challenge; and Retro Sketches 125.

This card qualifies for all 3.  I used a Die-Namites Rose die and a sentiment from Avery Elle, Simply Said Hello, following with the Retro Sketch #125.  I just found the Die-Namites challenge, which was perfect since I literally just got a few of these dies!



After I got the first card done, I realized that I didn't use the sketch that Die-Namites had.  Well, I simply had to make a 2nd card! [Anyone surprised?]


For this one, I used a different Die-Namites, Sunny Flower Duo, and another sentiment from Avery Elle Simply Said Hello, followed the Die-Namites sketch and used the dare, blue.

Die-Namties July 2014 Sketch and Dare Challenge 

I'll be uploading these separately since it on one post, but as stated both cards fit 2 out of 3 challenges. I'm good with that.

AAA Card Challenge #13



This week the Create challenge is a shaker card.  Recently, I have seen different types of shaker cards that I just love -- using a glassine bag.


I went with using gold, I find it so elegant.  I love that you can see the turquoise sequins through the bag, and the colors compliment each other. I used Dare 2B Artzy; Fancy Notes, and Hero Arts, Cling Dots.  I am also entering this into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, emboss it.

There are many ways to create a shaker card. Go for it! Be sure to check out the samples the Team has created [for inspiration], and then play along over at AAA Cards Challenge!

Dazzling Divas #35 - Pink & Pearl

Dazzling Divas is at it again with a fun color challenge this week; Pink & Pearl [off white].

 I used the oh so pretty, Pucker Me Pink Craft Sheet Metal, and the background panel I used Precious Pearl Craft Metal Sheet with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. 

See the gold?  I used one of the tools DD carries, Inka Gold.  It's a metal gloss paint!  Very awesome stuff!  You can see a video here on how it works.

Here is the inspiration photo for this week's challenge:
