I made this first card to show two things. The first was a great way to use up all those tiny strips of scrap dsp. I cut 3 1/2" strips that were 1/4" thick. Then I bent them in half and glued the ends together. When I had 12 of these I adhered them to a circle and then added my layers on top.
So glad you came by for a visit. Thanks for stopping by!

I created the background by cutting the dsp into 1/2" strips and then for the first card I shifted the strips up and down a little.
For this second card I flipped over every other strip for the opposite side of the dsp. Doesn't it look neat?! I also have every intention of using the cutoff from the Framelit for another card. It was just too neat looking to throw into the recycle bin. It's been on my desk staring at me. I will get to it soon.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Stampin' Celebration is kicking things off with a Spring theme. We have got some super inspiration photos for you. We have changed things a bit though. We will be having a challenge only once a month, but you will have almost a whole month to play. Also we have set things up like a blog hop and we even acquired a few more people on our design team. We hope you like our new setup. Leave us a comment on Stampin' Celebration or here and let us know what you think.
Here is something I've been playing with alot lately that has the whole Spring theme in mind. It all has to do with aluminum flashing. I heard they were making garden stakes at the SU! leadership convention but I never got to see any but I knew I had to try and figure it out. Well I figured it out alright and then some. Here are my first ones.
For the most part I used the Beautiful Butterfly Die, Scallop Circle die, Flower Folds Die and Fun Flowers Die. I also tried pretty much every embossing folder that SU! makes. What fun :) To jazz it up a bit and also to attach layers I used Rhinestone brads. The Crop-A-Dile punches through this stuff with real ease. I used 12 gauge wire, bought at our local craft store, as the hangers.
So I had to make a card using this. Plus why not add a little gift bag. Here I used the Top Note Die and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.
Hope you enjoyed your visit. You probably came from Krystal's blog and next in line after me is Rochelle. Hope you have fun hopping! See you next time!

I miss Taken With Teal. Such a beautiful colour but I have still a little bit left. I paired it with Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. All the Vanilla layers were sprayed with Champagne Shimmer Paint and the Teal layer was run through the Big Shot with an embossing plate and then I copied the details with Dazzling Details. Such a neat effect! All the hearts were cut with the new Heart Collection Edgelits and the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit.
I carried on a bit of the same ideas to the inside. I used the same Lace Border Punch and then added some Dazzling Details to it for some added pizazz. The sketch I used is from Pals Paper Arts challenge #127.
Thanks for stopping by!

So what did the pretty ballerina get for her birthday???
Meet the latest edition to our family. Ella, a 15 week old Labradoodle. It has been a crazy long day and we'll see how our first night together goes. Hopefully we'll get along well and she'll still allow me some stamping time. I really have enjoyed getting back into it lately. Till next time...happy stamping!

This is a birthday card I made for my daughter. She chose the ballerina theme for her party. I'll share the cupcakes toppers later(they're really cute). Anyways I turned the card into a shaker card using the retired micro beads. The paper I used was from Cheerful Treat and the Silver Glitter paper. I embellished the card with a Glimmer Brad and some Basic Rhinestones. She is gonna love this card. I can't wait to give it to her.
I've entered this in Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #101 asking for a Shaker card. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a good weekend!
