Live Laugh Love

 Hello everyone, and Happy Saturday to you all! Today's card was created for Club Scrap(using the Beautiful "Color Me Happy" Kit) & Really Reasonable Ribbon (using the Beautiful Shimmer Satin, in Electric Blue) What gorgeous color this ribbon is, and it goes perfect with the Beautiful design papers I used.

The bow I made is a double bow. I like the fullness of it. I did add a beautiful RRR Embellishment Rhinestone to the center of my bow.

I also wanted to add of Really Reasonable Ribbons Mulberry flowers, as I miss seeing them in bloom. So I added some Sweetheart Blossoms in yellow,orange, and blue to my card. The leaves I used are the green leaves, and everything is hot glued on.

All of the beautiful layers of my card were put together using Club Scraps Color Me happy kit(2 design papers, and 2 card stock)I then added sewing, its funny, because my sewing machine for quilting has an automatic thread cutter, and this one I use on paper crafting doesn't, so it took me a moment to think about that, as I have been sewing with material a lot lately, and haven't so much on paper, anyways just had to share that :) Each layer was put together using Really Reasonable Ribbons Scor-Tape  in the 1" thickness. This made putting my card together super quick. as I just tore off 3 long pieces for each layer. Foam tabs were used to add a 3-D to a couple of the layers, and  both adhesives can be found here.

The sentiments are both from Club scrap Color Me Happy Kit, and can also be purchased separately , the 2 sets I used are(Live Laugh Love) "Color Me Happy Jumbo Unmounted Stamps" and for the (Happy)is "Color Me Happy Art Nouveau Unmounted Stamps".

I stamped them using markers from SU! and then airbrushed using copics. Love the look!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,

So Glad Card

Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to all!
Today I have a super fun card to share with you all, using the BEAUTIFUL Cheery Lynn Dies. For this card here I wanted something with Spring colors, as its been so COLD here in Utah :) hehehe so this worked perfect and the Cheery Lynn dies are so fun to work with, I truly enjoy using them on all my projects!
I started with the Cheery Lynn Nesting Doll die, cut it out in pink, and white, and then stamped my sentiment on it. Next I cut out the sweet B155 Large Rose die strip from Cheery Lynn, in coordinating design paper. I did do the Glass Flower technique, and have tutorials on my blog here.  The green branches were cut using my favorite branch die, its actually a Wreath Strip, but I love using it for branches and fillers.
Underneath my main sentiment layer, is a border layer using the Cheery Lynn Butterfly Border die. I cu it in white, an layered it on the design paper in blue. You cant see it too well, as I covered it with my sentiment layer, by accident...hehehe I should have moved it all up some, and left the border lower. Next time!
Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
Ribbon used is Really Reasonable Ribbons Satin. I also used foam tabs, and some embellishments, all can be found here at RRR.
Sentiment is Heartfelt Creations
Design paper is from Pebbles

To embellish I used some Polka Dot Yellow Satin ribbon for a bow, that I stuck underneath my flowers and branches.
I hope you enjoyed my card for today, as I had a lot of fun creating it.
Thank you for looking and have a super awesome week!!
hugs to all,

This is a recycled Laughing cow cheese container, decorated using Club Scraps Shades of Winter collection. Inside is a mini album made using doily's and ribbon. and in the photo below you can see 2 of the design papers I chose to use today. I also used the beautiful blue shimmer text card stock & the Champagne color Text Card stock, both from the collection as well. For all the doilies I just used some white.

Club Scrap December Artist Team Challenge

Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps December Artist Team Challenge! This month the December Challenge was to choose from some different challenges on the Club Scrap Forum found here. I chose a couple of different challenges for my 3 items today. Hope you enjoy them, as I truly enjoyed creating each one :)

Now you should have arrived from Josette's Blog , however if you did not come from there, you might want to start at the beginning with Karen's Club Scrap blog that way you wont miss anything. All design paper, card stock, Stamps and snowflakes used are from Club ScrapsShades of Winter collection", I also used the one Ribbon on the card from this collection as well.
1st up is my Fancy Doily Fold Card.(Made for Club Scraps Tool & Stash Challenge using liquid glitter)
I created my card using 4 doily's cut out of the shades of winter ivory pattern card stock. Next I cut the circles out of another design paper in this beautiful collection. All the design papers are from the Shades of Winter Deluxe Kit. I did use Cheery Lynn die's to cut out my doily, circle, frame, oval, and flowers. The Beautiful sentiment stamp used is from the Shades of winter kit as well. Lastly I embellished using white half backed dots, covered in stickles glitter, and then the metal tree charm(from Shades of Winter) and the ribbon also from the kit.

2nd up is my
White Christmas Doily Tag: Designed for the Non-Traditional Christmas Technique Challenge (use non traditional Christmas colors, and glitz)
I did just that on this tag. My tag was designed with 2 doilies, circle, bells, holly, and berries, all cut out using the Shades of Winter Collection. For the glitz I used stickles on the berries and then the glitzy snowflakes that came with this beautiful collection. I have to say this is another of my FAVORITE kits by Club Scrap!

3rd is my Snowman tag:
Lastly my snowman tag, that is going on my daughters gift :)
He was designed for the Tool & Stash Challenge too (Use Liquid glitter)
I designed him using 3 circles from Cheery Lynn dies. The hat was designed using SU! punch and then cutting a square and using a corner rounder on the top of it. Next I punched branches using Martha Stewart branch punch, this brown card stock came from the Christmas Thyme Collection. all other design papers on the snowman came from Shades of Winter Deluxe Kit He needed some Glitze so I did just that on his hat. I added stickles to the green branches and then the berries were made using a burgundy stickles. His eyes were done using Viva pearl pen, and his nose I cut by hand. super fun and super cute tag I must say. Now on the bottom of him I did add more stickles to give some glitz to him as well. I did add it to the braches that are part of the dp pattern. I should have made 3 of these, and might have to make a couple more for gifts. I love how they are so big, and you can add your writing to the back. perfect for large gifts I say!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, and all my projects, as I had fun designing each and every one of them! Please let me know what you think as I always enjoy reading your wonderful comments!
