A Holiday Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

Greetings and happy Monday, it's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs.

I created a holiday card featuring the Rustic Birdhouse die for my post today. The background includes the Card Maker Scalloped Rectangle, then the Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker.

I placed the Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker in a horizontal position, then took the doily that was cut from the center of our Dutch Scallop Square. This was cut in half and glued behind.  This layer was adhered with foam squares for dimension.

A bit of cheese cloth was adhered behind the Rustic Birdhouse, then Branches were added on the left in different colors and under my bird. I tied a bit of string and made a bow to finish it. A small part of a Francesca border was cut and adhered below the house. Two of the Steampunk Corners were added to anchor the base.

UmWow Studio and Susan Weckesser Blog Hop!

Be sure to keep visiting, hopping and commenting to enter to win one of TWO prize packages. Each day is packed full of goodness and we don't want you to miss a thing.

Dream a Little Dream and Live in full Color!

When I received my Susan K. Weckesser goodies, I knew exactly what photos I wanted to pair with it! We had a really stormy month of June and I captured some rainbows that I thought were the perfect mix with the collection.  The kids had loads of fun talking about the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow!

I used the UmWowStudio Star Confetti Mask and some pearlescent embossing paste that I heat set for a bit of background texture.  For the two Layered Clouds on the right,  I base coated them in Gesso, then sprinkled white embossing powder on them and heat set. A touch of Lindy's Magical's in Tiffany LouBlue was mixed with a touch more gesso to tint them.

The Layered Cloud on the left I used some Art Anthology Stone effects in Bone, then added white embossing powder, heat set and touched a bit more Magicals on it.

I love the way our products work together so beautifully!  Thank you to Susan K. Weckesser for the opportunity to work with your lovely products!!!

Quick Quotes July Club Q

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's my day to host the blog and share my project at the Quick Quotes blog today.

My project features pieces from the July Club Q along with a few items from my personal crafting treasures.

I started my page with a few layers, then stenciled the title at an angle using Glossy White Embossing Paste which was heat set to provide the texture. The texture is so much fun!

The July Club Q Kit contains these adorable summer die cut shapes, the sun, the umbrella and the Palm Tree in white card stock.  I added Lemonade PowderPuff Chalk Ink and a touch of Orange Slice on the Sun. The Umbrella was colored with Blue Lagoon.  I added a bit of Stickles to my Palm Tree and to the edge of the umbrella also.

The kit also contains the orange button and the orange ribbon, the perfect finishing touches!

Monochromatic Holiday Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday crafty peeps, it's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs.

Our new releases are so pretty and had me in the Christmas spirit a bit, so I made a monochromatic holiday card to share with you for today.

The background features a Horizon Square Boutique Stacker layered with a Horizon Rectangle Boutique Stacker that I threaded some string through and tied a simple bow.

I used a variety of white papers for my project in different finishes and textures for interest. My Snowflake Doily is backed with an Angel Wing cut, then attached with foam squares. The snowflake from the Merry Christmas with Tree Sentiment is cut twice and the 2nd layer is attached at an angle and with a foam square.
