Double D, BLING It Up!

Good Morning!  

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Here is your Inspiration Tile for this Challenge:

Oooh sparkly!

Here's what I decided to create!

I have to say I never would have thought I would be buying such cutsie little stamp sets, but lately Mermaids and Unicorns have been hopping into my shopping cart lol  Ohhhh Penelope!  

This sweet little stamp set is by Your Next Stamp, Little Darling Mermaid.  CUTE!!!  Image stamped in Raven Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  Sentiment stamped in Tempting Turquoise ink.  I then created a mask to cover the image and spritzed Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Teal all over it.  

My frame was created using the Simon Says Grid Frame, which I layered on to a pretty green card stock.  I stamped and fussy cut out 4 scallop shells and adhered to each corner, topping each with a small Adhesive Pearl.  

On my background splatters I added teeny tiny pieces of confetti like glitter in blues and greens.  I also added Iridescent Sequins to parts of my frame.  Lastly I created a pearl necklace for my sweet mermaid.  CUTE!

This card will also be entered into the Stamping Sensations Challenge, Close To Nature.

My frame has been backed by Fun Foam, adding dimension and makes for a nice sturdy piece.

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!
You'll be glad you did as there is always a pretty prize up for grabs!

Make A Wish

Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog

I've been thinking a lot about card making and I have finally figured out, I love to make Birthday Cards.  You can use any images, any dies....just sit down and start creating!  Here's what I came up for today!  

I cut a piece of white card stock and using a Dove Gray ink I stamped my background foliage, Nature's Greetings by Gina K Designs.  To soften the look a bit more, I added a piece of Vellum on top.  Perfect!  My sentiment is stamped in Raven Black ink, also by Gina K Designs, Fairy Tales.  I also added a bit of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Dandelion on my sentiment strip.  Yellow Candy Dots in each corner of my Vellum layer. 

 Next I cut out these BEAUTIFUL Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies Dandelion Fluff from Yellow card stock.  I sponged on a bit of More Mustard ink to the ends, this gives them a bit of depth and dimension.    Now here's a little trick, when using Vellum and you don't want your glue or glue dots to show, just cover them up.  I used the Tutti Designs Dies Nesting Stitched Banners to do just that.  Then I simply topped them with big Enamel Brads.  Honeycomb and Black and White Striped Designer Papers.

I think these Dandelion Fluff are really FUN!  Remember as a kid, you would find them, blow and make a wish?  Oh to simpler times!  :)

Here's what I used:

Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dies - Dandelion Fluff

Tutti Designs - Dies - Nesting Stitched Banners

This card will also be entered in these Challenges:
Penny Black, Anything Goes!
