Reverse Confetti: Quirky Cuties Hop (a bit late)

Hello, friends:}

Last week, the RC crew had a hop using some of the Quirky Cuties images.... and I'm FINALLY joining in the fun! LOL! I'm a bit late but you can click HERE to check out the entire hop:) 

I am joining in the fun with my challenge as well--- DING! I needed another masculine birthday card! Unfortunately, I didn't use any product from my stash- LOL! These papers are from the Becky Higgins Project Life Jade edition. PERFECT for this card! 
I used the NEW RC Rocky Raccoon image for this fun card. The sentiment is a mix match from the NEW RC Fresh 'n Fruity and You Make Me Smile sets. I also added some triangles at the bottom (to highlight our friend's birthday) using the Paper Crane set. LOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out! 

That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the Reverse Confetti blog for more inspiration and details!

I was on the 
Chickaniddy blog the other day (HERE).


I'm sharing two cards that are perfect for the SUMMER:) Usually during the summer months, we would rather be outside in the sunshine or at the beach instead of in our craft rooms! So these cards are CAS and can be easily mass-produced to send sunshine to all of your friends and family!!! 

Check out the video HERE: **Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching:) 
These cards really are simple in design--- it's just that sometimes I forget that I can't add more details:) LOL! 


Chickaniddy Supplies: Paper Together Is Better (DN14OS09), Tea Party (TG14OS03); Brads Date Night (DN14EB06); Whisker Graphics Lemon divine twine

I hope that will create some super fun and CAS cards using Chickaniddy papers and products! Send some sunshine to your family and friends this summer:)

Paper Smooches SPARKS July Designer Drafts challenge

Hello, friends:}


Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week we are sharing a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 




This week we are inspired by the following sketch:
**Sentiments can be placed anywhere on the sketch.

Ok---so I think I'm on a roll!!!!!!!!! I'm following sketches like NEVER before! LOL! I think I followed this sketch 88%! That's WAY more than EVER before! The only changes I made were: taking out the scallops, making the center piece an oval, and making the top back piece smaller.

I made this card for my nephew's upcoming birthday! I wanted something simple and super fun for him--- he really likes Transformers and things like that.... but I didn't see any of these images in my PS stash! LOL! 

I used the Becky Higgins Project Life Honey edition for the papers. I used the PS Woofers & Tweeters and Woofers dies to create that super cute puppy! LOVE LOVE LOVE him! I die cut the Birthday Words sentiment and then masked the rest of the sentiment from the Get Outta Town set. LOOOOOVE the simplicity and colors! ***This also fits my Sav Challenges-- masculine birthday cards! LOVE that I'm doing so well with these challenges:) 


That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs, get inspired, and leave them some love


And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details!!!! This challenge ends August 2nd. I cannot wait to see what you make!!!

Imagine Crafts: Encore! Ultimate Metallic Inks VIDEO {post1}

Hello, friends:)

**After 6am EST- please click HERE for my Reverse Confetti July Color Challenge post and creation! 

I'm super excited today to share another Imagine Crafts video! Click HERE or HERE to check it out:) 
I used my Tsukineko Encore! Ultimate Metallic inks to create these beautiful "Thinking Of You" cards. I'm in love with these bold metallic inks... but needed a softer look for a sympathy card. To achieve this look, all I did was "spritz" the ink with some Ink Potion No. 9  LOVE the finished look! Soft, beautiful, and still bold metallic! It was exactly what I was looking for:)  ***Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS:) 

I hope that you will stop over on the Imagine Crafts blog to check out my video and leave some love!!! Or click HERE to watch the video on YouTube or HERE on Vimeo.

RC: One Layer Masculine card

Hello, friends:}

Today I'm sharing a super simple.... ONE LAYER... MASCULINE card! WOW! I've really stepped out of my comfort zone... or would you say that THIS is my NEW comfort zone! LOL! 


I used one of my FAVORITE Reverse Confetti stamp images-- the owl from the Quirky Cuties: Oliver Owl set. LOVE LOVE LOVE him! I wanted to make a simple masculine birthday card (to continue working on my challenges!!!)!!! Ding! Points for finishing another masculine birthday card:) DING DING! I also used old My Mind's Eye papers for this card! LOOOOOOVE when I can combine both of my challenges:) 
My favorite part of this is the watercoloring design. It's so random! I used my Tsukineko Memento Cantaloupe and Tangelo dye inks for the beak and feet, Desert Sand dye ink for the body and VersaMagic Oaisis Green pigment ink for the tie! OH MY! Isn't he so cute!?!?! 

That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the Reverse Confetti blog for more inspiration and details!

Today I'm sharing a recap of my project over on the Imagine Crafts blog. Click HERE or HERE to check it out:) Click HERE for the video on Vimeo






****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching this video! THANKS:)
I used a Tsukineko Radiant Neon pigment inks to create some birthday cards! I was inspired by a photo that Trav took while on a cruise to the Bahamas. I really like those words at the bottom of the dock--- some are overlapped and there are some words you can read. LOVE it!
