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.

My Sweet Story with UmWow Studio

Happy Thursday to you!  I have a fun project to share with you today.  It's my very first project for UmWow Studio. I am super excited to be a part of this very talented team!!!


I was inspired by the Hexagon Background for my page. To begin, I coated it in clear gesso and then misted it with some Moon Shadow Mist, then sprinkled it randomly while wet with Pepper embossing Powder and applied heat to activate the embossing.

Once it dried completely, I flipped it over and used it as a mask to mist onto my background paper. I used TiffanyLou Blue and then set aside to dry.


I selected the Mini Polaroid with a heart relief and colored it with Whale Watch Blue. The heart was later colored in with a Blue Metallic artist pen. The Layered Clouds were misted with Splash Chalkboard mist and Whale Watch Blue. Once dry, I added some Glossy Accents to the layered cloud on the right.


Additional embellishments of enamel dots and sequins helped finish the page. The star theme of my "Life is Good" flair is one of my favorite elements on the page.

Cheery Lynn Designs July New Release!

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's an exciting day today at Cheery Lynn Designs as we have a brand new release to share with you today.

Here is my project featuring a few of the new dies.

The Top Secret Classified die is such a fun idea! I layered mine on top of the Snowflake Doily with Angel Wing. The Angel Wing cut of my Snowflake was done with some silver glitter paper.  I traced around my shape of the Top Secret Classified to create a backer. 

A few details….

I used the new release 'Deer In The Forest' vine here on top of the Dancing Snow Flurries cut from vellum which was attached on the diagonal. It helped keep the overall look soft.

This was a fun card to put together as I always love to use things in a little unconventional manner.
