Butterflies And Poppies

Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog

On today's card I will show you how easy it is to add just a wee bit of foiling to your card.  You don't need to have a Toner Printer, or even a laminator, just look for products that incorporate it already.  It's easy........

I started with Foiled Paper! See?  Wasn't that easy?!?! 
Our Dies R Us Store makes it even easier by carrying some beautiful Foiled Paper
in beautiful Prints and Designs. 
Here's a couple by My Mind's Eye and 2 beauties by Pink Paislee.  SO EASY!!! 
The Dies R Us Store also carries many brands of other beautiful Paper Pads.

I also added foiling to my card using my Mini Minc and Foiled Toner Sheets.  I die cut my Memory Box Row of Poppies from Hot Pink Foiled Sheets, which I cropped a bit.  These pretty poppies were then adhered to a layered Tutti Designs Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangles, which were backed with Fun Foam to add dimension.  

I used Spellbinders Standard and Scallop Circle dies to stamp my sweet little butterfly on.  Image By Gina K Designs, Birds And Blossoms,
stamped with Raven Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.
  Hidden beneath that is a small Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Banners
with Rhinestone accent.  
I layered the Dies R Us Butterfly #2 Set and added another Rhinestone accent,  this particular set is no longer available, although we have many, many beautiful Butterfly Dies to choose from.  

Pop Dot.
Fun Foam.
Pink Ribbon. 

Love the Foiled Accents and all of that dimension!

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!
