Penny's First Birthday

Good Morning!  

Just got back from spending some special time with my special girl, Penny.  
She turns ONE in 18 days!  Every week she learns something new, it is so magical.
I am blessed!  

Sharing my love of flowers with my love!

I finally finished her Eclipse Card.  I made one a couple of weeks ago, but I had to use some of that 'purple tape' to hold down my dies, after lifting it, it left a sticky residue that I could not remove, so I made a 2nd one, just like the first.

I used the Simon Says Wildly Cuddily Critters stamp set, colored with Copic Markers.  I lined up Alphabet dies, which I no longer have the packaging for, so I am not sure of the brand, but they measure almost 2" tall.  They make for nice big, bold letters.

I layered 3 stacks of each letter so it would really POP off the card, 2 white and 1 pink, then the stamped critter layer.  I also added Wink Of Stella to different parts of each critter.  

Inside I used the Die Versions, Letters Little Lime dies.  
I also used the Gina K Designs stamp sets; Birthday Duo and Simple Numbers.  
Raven Black and Melon Mambo inks.  
Plaid Paper by Simon Says.
Pink and White Gingham Ribbon.

FUN to make, as always!

This card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Simon Says Work It Wednesday, Favorite Technique (coloring with Copic Markers & Eclipse)
Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes
Penny Black, Feminine
Scrapy Land, Anything Goes

Thanks for popping in!

Lovely Lavender Birthday

Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog

This is my final post as a Design Team Member.  I would like to thank Darlene for being such a wonderful leader and for her friendship!  Thank you to all of my Team Mates for such wonderful inspiration over the past year.  

On to my card!   

I adore this sweet little watering can, don't you?  I knew I had to own it as soon as I saw it and I knew that I would give it a rustic vibe by adding lots of 'Patina' to it.  So easy!  I die cut it from White card stock and from a piece of chipboard I had lying around.  I layered the 2 together and then began the aging process.  Using Embossing Powders and craft paints I was able to achieve this look.  The Frugal Crafter has an awesome video with easy to follow along instructions.  You can view the video HERE.  

I also added 'Patina' to my White Adhesive Pearls.  I just love how these turned out!  Sentiment stamped in Wisteria Wonder ink, stamp set by Papertrey Ink, Vintage Linens.  My White card stock has been backed with Fun Foam to add a bit of dimension and to make the panel nice and sturdy.

You can see the thickness of the watering can from this angle.  Layering die cuts has always been a favorite and easy technique of mine.  It adds so much then using a solo piece, which tends to look so flat.  

This card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Scrapy Land, Anything Goes #98
Crop Stop, Party #43
