Crafting Inspiration Day 5

Hello everyone!  I am up on the Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.

This week the Trendy Twine design team is pairing up with the Fluerette Bloom design team to bring you some crafting inspiration.  Our crafting inspiration goes from Sunday, January 11th through Saturday, January 17th, please join us each day. 

Today I used Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine, the Valentine Be Mine Kit along with the Hearts A Flutter Digital Papers from Fluerette Bloom. This Valentine kit is so fun--I really want to make everything from this kit.

I made 12 of the butterfly lollipop decor using 4 different Hearts A Flutter Digital Papers.   These are so quick and easy to make.  The files come with a PDF listing the sizes they should be so I set my Explore to cut them at the directed size.

Then I tied my Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine in a bow around the lollipop before sliding it into the butterfly.  The second solid layer is not from the digital kit, but my own stock.

There is blog candy up for grabs!  One Lucky Winner will win the following!

Owl Always Love You!

Hello everyone!  Today I have a pink card for you--I know, that's nothing new is it? :)  I used the dreaming owl from Too Cute by Jessica's new Owl Always Love U files.  She is so cute!  If there are owl files, I will play with them--LOL!

This owl comes with the owl parts to make the owl and those red hearts. I added Frosted Lace Stickles to all the hearts.  I did ink the edges of the owl and I do like that look. 

I also used to of my favorite things--Tickled Pink Trendy Twine and a My Pink Stamper stamp. I am so happy that Robyn is back making stamps again!  This stamp is from her new I *Heart* Punny-licious set.  It got here so quickly and I was very glad since I wanted to use this stamp for this card.

When I got the twine out to use, I wasn't sure where it would go.  I like that I added it to look like the owl is hanging on to it :)

Be sure to visit Too Cute by Jessica to see all the great files.  There are new ones (and more to come) and a sale!

Valentine Tree

Hi everyone!  I have started on my Valentine cards and treats.  This is one of my favorite holidays to create for--I just love all the pink and red :)

Today I used a heart tree from a new Too Cute by Jessica file called Owl Always Love U.  Yes, there are owls and I will be showing them soon!

The red tree top has three layers so I did take a close up in the hopes you can see that.  I also used some Frosted Lace Stickles on the hearts on the tree, but those are hard to see too.  The smaller hearts are also from the same file.  I had cut the tree out and it was smaller than I wanted so I just used them around the tree on this card.

The cloud paper is Doodlebug Designs 6x6 Sweetheart pad.  I thought it was perfect for this card. And I used a bit of Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the tree.  The stamp is from My Pink Stamper.

There is a great sale going on over at Too Cute by Jessica--check it out!

Have a fabulous day!

Penguin Thanks

Hi everyone!

I made some thank you cards to pass out for Christmas gifts.  Of course, they are not all totally finished, but this one is :)

I used a Too Cute by Jessica file called Simple Penguins.  There are 4 penguins and all are so cute!  I do love to play with the animal files, as you might have noticed. The penguin is about 3-3 1/2 inches.

The stamp is from a Jillibean Soup set and then I inked the edges of the top white layer as well. To finish off the card I used some yummy Black Licorice Trendy Twine and some Doodlebug sequins. Those are two of my go-to embellishments :)

There are some fabulous files over at Too Cute by Jessica so I hope you stop over there!

Have a great day!

Happy New Year!!

Hi everyone and Happy New Year!! I have a cute new year card for you today using the Too Cute by Jessica New Years Bears.

The bear is about 3 inches tall, I think.  I didn't add much to him, since I just liked the way he looked :)

The pattern paper is DCWV gold stack--it was perfect for this card.  Then I added some Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins and a Craftin Desert Diva stamp.

Have a great new year!!
