Smile

Jillibean Soup | Smile

One more April Jillibean Soup card to share today. This one is all stamping! I love how Jillibean Soup and other scrapbook companies are adding stamps to go with their collections, and decided to let these beautiful florals stand on their own today. The majority of my stamping was done using the Bowl of Dreams stamp set. I filled in with smaller flowers/branches/leaves from the Latte Love stamp set (which is a stamp set in the Shaker Shakers line).

I first stamped everything onto a white A2 panel, then used Papertrey Ink's Double Ups stitched rectangle die to cut the panel into an inside piece and an outer frame (same die does the cut line as well as the inside and outside stitching.) 

I popped up the inside piece onto fun foam for some subtle dimension.

Last, I splattered some black ink and added some clear sequins.

Hi! Thinking of You!

Jillibean Soup | Hi, Thinking of You

Here's another card I had over on the Jillibean Soup blog earlier this month. More feathers! This time, I stamped my own, using the feather images in the Bowl of Dreams stamp set. Very similar layout to yesterday's card as well!

I first stamped my pattern in white ink, then went back and stamped a second time in yellow, rose, and green inks, offsetting slightly for the shadow/highlight effect. I also splattered the background with kraft and white ink.

In the bottom right, I added a rose pink card stock flag, a stamped sentiment, puffy sticker, and wood veneer flower (all from the Bowl of Dreams collection).

XOXO I Love You More

Jillibean Soup | XOXO Love You More

Over the next few days, I'll be sharing a few cards that I had on the Jillibean Soup blog earlier this month. 

I just adore this feather print in Jillibean Soup's Bowl of Dreams Collection. Those colors -- sigh ...

I trimmed down a piece to create a wide center strip, then backed it with a blue print with torn edges. Then for the fun embellishment cluster in the bottom right! I used a mixture of Bowl of Dreams Puffy Stickers and Bowl of Dreams Coordinating Stickers. The wood veneers flowers are also from the Bowl of Dreams collection.

I tear vellum often, but haven't done paper in a while!

The Kraft card base really shows off those colors, don't you think? Jillibean Soup and Kraft always go hand-in-hand, too -- love that!

Love You - April SFYTT


Love You | April 2017 SFYTT

Hello, hello, and happy Wednesday!

 Reverse Confetti's April SFYTT soon will be wrapping up. To play along, link up your entry HERE by noon on the 29th.

Here's what we're working with this month:



Love You | April 2017 SFYTT

For the vertical rectangle sketch element, I used a Cloud White Dots Tag Layer Confetti Cuts die-cut, and for the circle element, I used a Swirlies Confetti Cuts die-cut in Sand card stock.


Love You | April 2017 SFYTT

Next, I added a cluster of pretty flowers that I stamped with the Blooms 'N Buds stamp set and die-cut with the corresponding Blooms 'N Buds Confetti Cuts dies. I accented each of the flowers with some white gel pen. Don't you just love the flowers in that set? 

For the horizontal element, I stamped the "love you" Bitty Banners onto a Bitty Banners Confetti Cuts die-cut.


Love You | April 2017 SFYTT

Along the top of the tag, I added a Hang Ups Confetti Cuts die-cut topped with some gold cord and a sweet little wood veneer heart.




Thanks for visiting!

Pattern Building with Glitter Tape

Hi there! I'm over on the Queen & Company blog with a couple more washi tape creations, this time glitter washi. In case you missed it, Queen & Company is featuring washi tape projects all month long. So many unique and creative ideas have been shared. Check it out if your washi stash tends to stay stashed ;)

My first card is a graduation congrats card. With so many colors to choose from, including silver and yellow/gold, it's pretty easy to customize graduation cards to most school colors. The glitter tape adds a festive note, don't you think?

I especially like the wide Blue Lines Tape, which has a unique texture that reminds me of crepe paper!

For my next card, I created a simple thank-you card that incorporates some fun positive-negative design elements.

Glitter Washi Thanks

Stop by the Queen & Company blog for more photos and how-to!

Have a great weekend, my friends! I'm off to my daughter's first horse show of the season, and it looks like it's going to be a rainy one.
