New Mid- Month Challenge with Dies R Us!










Hello sweet friends! 
Welcome to our new mid-month challenge at Dies R US! Our challenge today is "Fancy Corners". So anything you want to create, any theme, any style... just show us those fancy corner styles. 

So here are the cards that I created for today's challenge.

I made two cards because I am getting in the habit of creating 2 each time I sit down to create. That way I build up my stash and I get more done in the limited amount of time I have to create. :)

My cards were made with all Stampin' Up paper and cardstock. I wanted to keep the cards fairly simple so these came together very quickly. I used the Sue Wilson Designs- Heraldic Square Dies to use as my main focal image and for the fancy corners. This die set comes with 3 dies and you can use them altogether or separately. For the portrait style card, I cut the largest die out of white and cut out the smallest die out of the floral background paper. That smallest die doesn't have any cut lines, it cuts into the paper but doesn't cut it out. So I used the middle die with it so that I could get it to cut out. I cut the middle die piece off so have just the smallest die inlay piece left. I hand cut a frame from the middle die piece so that I could have a nice Navy frame around that center piece. I took my white gel pen and colored in some of the shapes, took my black copic multi-liner and did some inside doodling too. For this card, I also cut out the Lawn Fawn- Thinking About You Border Die and cut it apart to fit under my main focal point. Again, I did a little bit of doodling along the sides and hand drew a heart for the "dot" above the "I". To finish off the first card, I added some liquid pearls in "Buttercup" and added my clear spectrum noir sparkle pen to the sentiment and the outside frame. :)


For my second card, I wanted to make a landscape card similar to the first one that I made. This time, I cut out the largest & middle dies from the Sue Wilson Designs- Heraldic Square Dies in Night Of Navy cardstock and the smallest inlay piece in the same floral background paper. On this card, I used the three dies together the way they come packaged up. Love the look! Again, I used my white gel pen to color in some of the shape pieces and did a little doodling on the outside frame. I love the beautiful fancy corners the largest die creates! I took the clear spectrum noir sparkle pen and brushed it all over the entire top of the main focal image for super shine! Then I cut out the Lawn Fawn- Happy Birthday Border Die in white to go across the center. Love the white sentiment because it pops against that navy! I took my copic multi-liner and again, added in a few doodles over the sentiment letters this time. Love that doodled look! Added in some perfect pearls and it's done! Both card centers are popped up with foam tape, two thicknesses high.


  And that completes my cards! All of the dies that I used are highlighted in the links above and can be found in the Dies R Us store HERE

Well that is all I have for you today my friends. I appreciate you for taking time out of your day to visit me and see what I am up to.

New Release with Little Blue Button Stamps!

This is my 3rd Post today!

Little Blue Button Stamps



Hello sweet friends! 
How have you all been? If you are in Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee and any other places being affected by Hurricane Harvey, you are in my prayers. For those of you who would like to help donate to the families, I teamed up with the Red Cross and you may click the link up above to contribute. Please have open hearts and donate anything you can. Please help me to make a difference. 

Today, I will be sharing a brand new image with you from  September's new release. The Little Blue Button Stamps Shop has released some amazing digital stamps for this new release as always and I am super excited to share with you what I created using this adorable digital stamp called, "Witch Sophie".

Here is my card!
My sweet little witch was printed out on some Canson watercolor cold press paper and colored in using my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers. I used my copic multi-liner pen to enhance her eyelashes and the cat's whiskers. Added in a few moles on her face and then set her aside. 
The background was so fun to make! I wanted a nice night sky so I used a variation of blues, purple, gray and black to get the look I was going for. I used my heat gun to dry it and then took a few of the markers to add little dots all around the background for interest. Then I took a little bit of white gesso and flicked it off a paintbrush to create little "Stars" in the sky. The sentiment comes from a My Creative Time stamp set and to finish off the card, I added in a little bit of perfect pearls. I kept this super simple because it's going to my 10 yr old niece for Halloween. :)
  
 
          
Well I hope you enjoyed my card showing off this adorable "Witch Sophie" image! Please remember to head on over to the LBBS Blog to check out the awesome projects that my design team sisters have created for you using September's New Release.  

I am entering this into the 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Well thank you for stopping by today!
 I hope you have a wonderful, crafty day!
Until next time, Enjoy life's blessings~
