A Bit of Elegance

Hello and Happy Monday!  Today I'm playing along with the DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge.  I used papers from the Rose Gold 6x6 Stack and the DIY Project Stack which coordinated perfectly. The papers are so elegant and gorgeous that I chose not to add a sentiment to the front of my card.
Once I cut out the base of my card, I added a couple of pre cut tags from the DIY Project Stack. I used the Momenta Romance Die Cutting Templates for the heart and arrow die cuts.  I'm loving the non-traditional colors of this card for Valentine's Day.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Oriental Trading - Valentine's Treats

Hello! Today I'm sharing some quick Valentine's Day treats using some fun supplies from Oriental Trading!  I picked up some clear bags and created bag toppers for them using some dies from my stash.  A simple die cut heart, arrow and a few sequins were the embellishments on my bag topper.
I filled my treat bags with some candy which was wrapped with the coordinating paper.  A tiny Glue Dot secured the backs of the paper to each of the mini candy bars.
Once my treat bags were full, I adhered the toppers on to my bag.  For a decorative finishing accent, I added some ribbon, lace and sequin trim which was clipped with a coordinating clothespin.
Head on over to Oriental Trading to check out the items used on my project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
This review is based strictly on my opinion.  I was provided the samples free of charge by Oriental Trading to provide my honest review.  No other type of compensation was received.  All ideas and opinions are my own.

Love Card

Hello!  I have some new crafty goodies from Momenta that I've been playing with.  I used the Art-C Friendship Ephemera Collage Kit to create this entire card.  I just love how everything coordinates so perfectly in this kit.
I simply layered a fun tag and doily from the kit on my card base and added a few fun embellishments. The "love" sentiment was die cut with the Momenta Word Fetti die and embellished with the Art-C Magenta Glitter Water Brush.  The glitter adds a fun sparkly effect which is a bit hard to see in the pictures.  A few sequins and a bit of jute twine from my stash were the finishing touches.

Mermaid Kisses and Starfish Wishes

Hello! This mermaid theme card was created using a couple of fun techniques and some stamps from Gina Marie Designs.  I used several different Distress Oxide Inks for the background of my card and splashed it with some water. The same technique was used on the tag.  Next, I ran the base of my card through my Big Shot using the Darice Beach Waves embossing folder.
The stars were stamped with the Beach Layered Sea Shells Stamp Set and I simply heat embossed the top layer with gold embossing powder.  I also heat embossed the sentiment on the tag which was stamped from the Mermaid Words Stamp Set.  A few scattered sequins added a whimsical element to my card.  Some Wink of Stella along the waves created a subtle yet sparkly effect.  A bit of Totally Pink Trendy Twine was the finishing touch on my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  Today I have a CAS card to share created with the Momenta (Art-C) Alphabet pieces.  I used the stamps from the set for the Happy New Year sentiment on my card.
Once I had my sentiment stamped, I used the Momenta Cut and Emboss Star set to cut out the glittery stars and randomly placed them on my card. I also cut out a tiny strip of coordinating gold paper and added it to the edge of my card as a decorative element.  A few random sequins were the finishing touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Best wishes for a safe, prosperous and creative New Year!

Many Thanks

Hello!  Today I have a quick tag to share which was created with several products from Momenta. My project started with some paper from the Momenta Watercolor Splash paper pad.  I simply layered the paper with the Momenta (Art-C) Patterns stencil and used some Oxide Ink.  The stencils are adhesive which makes them so easy to use.
Next I used the Momenta (Art-C) Love, Hello, Thanks stamp and die set to cut and stamp my tag.  A bit of coordinating ribbon and a jute bow were the finishing touch on my CAS tag.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!

Trendy Twine - Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! Today the Trendy Twine has joined together to share some Christmas projects.  I created a fun ornament shaker card using the Teardrop Nested Ornament die from Cottage Cutz.  I filled my shaker with lots of sequins from my stash. A couple of die cut snowflakes were added as an embellishment.
I tucked in a sentiment from the APB Merry & Bright stamp set.  A small bow in Christmas Mint Trendy Twine was the finishing touch on my card.
Head on over to the Trendy Twine blog to check out the amazing projects created by the design team. The crafty products used on my card are available over at Annie's Paper Boutique.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Christmas Day!
