U.S.A. Card

Hey everyone! I have a really fun U.S.A. Card over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today that I’d love to share with all of you. I really get such enjoyment from making patriotic cards. Must be that veteran in me or military brat…or something, huh? Nothing makes me prouder than seeing the ‘ol red white and blue.

Here’s a look at the card:

Isn’t it FUN?!! I love using dies with different patterned papers to create that inlay effect. This die is from Technique Tuesday and it’s called Nested Stars. I kept them secured  together to make the spacing of the stars perfect. I may need a second set! ;)

The denim ribbon is from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and their collaboration with Donna Salazar. It’s just gorgeous! This U.S.A. Card came together so easy and I love all the little things that make it so special.

Don’t forget to head over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog to see a quick tutorial on how I made it and a list of supplies.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Dad’s Day!

Happy Dad’s Day!!! Yay!! And I have a super awesome Father’s Day Card that I’ve created just for this special day over on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog.

My dad is my hero, my pops, the guy who (to me) knows everything. He should be on every game show because he just seems to know more than anybody else I’ve ever known. He’s just crazy smart, and oh-so-funny, he makes me laugh in ways no one else could ever do. I wanted to be JUST like him when I was younger. He ruled the world…my dad.

I hate that I live in another state from him and my mom. While it’s not that far…I feel oceans apart. My family means so much to me and I bet they think otherwise. They’ve given me life, love, shelter, a hand to hold, a hug when I needed it, and faith when I had none.

My dad worked his butt off doing crap he didn’t want to do later in life. His knees hurt and he was tired.  But he did it to provide for he and my mom. He’s a good man. And I love that man.

I hope that you will never, ever doubt how much I love you, Dad. And I hope that your day is as wonderful, awesome, and fantastic as YOU are. Happy Dad’s Day.

Hey everyone! If you don’t follow the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog then you may not not that we’ve been doing an Art Journal feature all month long. And this? Is Art Journal Week 3!

We are using our exclusive square art journal boards, but we’ve been encouraging everyone to use what they have to play along. My art journal is about my recent trip to Colorado at the beginning of the month. I’m being a little bit of a tease as I don’t want to share my photos…yet! :) That’s for the final week.

Here’s a peek as to what’s been going on!

New Watercolor Card

Hey there! Happy Thursday! I have a really cool new watercolor card to share with you all on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today featuring a new die from Technique Tuesday.

I’m kind of addicted to creating watercolor backgrounds, to be honest. I love the fluidity and the way the colors just move. To spend time creating the backgrounds just gives me a sense of peace and calm. I just wonder if people (you!) get tired of them. Hopefully not.

I tried a kind of inlay technique using a watercolor background that I created and a new die from Technique Tuesday called Happy Butterfly. It’s so beautiful. I love butterflies almost as much as poppies. But not quite. ;)

Here’s a close up of my new watercolor card with the full tutorial up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog:

Look Out World

Hey everyone! I have a new card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today using this awesome new stamp set from Technique Tuesday called Look Out World. I used TWO companion die sets to create a fun every day type card that could be used for many occasions.

With Graduation, Father’s Day, and so many other occasions that just seem to be springing up, this set is perfect for any type of card.

And using all of the fun dimensional adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L® and the super cute dies (listed below) make it so easy to create something really special.

Here’s a sneak peek of my card:

Isn’t that Globe fabulous?! The globe, that sentiment, the colors…ALL of it just make me so happy! The stamp set is so appropriately named, too. “Look Out World”. Isn’t that kinda awesome? I want to make so many things with this set. I’m in HEAVEN! :)

Mother’s Day Card

Hi everyone! I have a Mother’s Day Card over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. I know, I know…it’s not Mother’s Day anymore. But, it’s a pretty card and I thought I could (and would) share it even though it’s one day later. :)

My card is inspired by one of my teammates on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog, Michele Kovack. She is a super mom, crazy talented, and is one heck of a photographer, too. I wish I had her kind of stamina!

Here is a peek at my Mother’s Day Card:

I hope that you all have a WONDERFUL day! More fun to come later in the week so stay tuned. :)

You Rock

Hi there! I’m sharing a new card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today using the You Rock limited edition die from Essentials by Ellen. It’s so super cute!

It was a lot of fun trying (for me) to create a clean and graphic card, as it’s really not my thing. I love mixed media! So trying NOT to get inky was soooo hard! Lol! I wonder if the CAS people think that mixed media is hard? Hmmm… ;)

Trying to get everything lined up just so required way more patience than I have. But that’s where the MyStik® Repositionable Dots came in handy. I was able to use this great product to keep things lined up until I was ready to really stick things down. *whew*

I have a couple of fun things to share with you today. My tag uses the brand new Be-YOU-tiful die. This is such a fun and versatile die! I die cut it twice. Once with a deep, dark navy blue cardstock and once out of a Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Creative Sheets. I burnished some gold foil on top of the die-cut adhesive sheet (once the liner was removed, of course) and then peeled the backing layer off of the back and slightly off-set it before pressing it down on top of the blue cardstock.

 Onto my second card. Isn’t it pretty? And so simple. First I created my watercolor panel. I love doing this. It is so amazingly relaxing. Picking the colors I wanted to use is always the hardest part.  For this card I used the beautiful Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36-Piece Watercolor set. It is amaaaaaazing! *sigh*

Now, I MUST talk about this seriously gorgeous flower. The Mondo Magnolia is drop-dead, *thud* amazing! And there is a matching die...for ALL of the pieces!! ACK!! I stamped it onto cardstock weight vellum with Versamark and heat set it with a stunning fine, white embossing powder. Then I used the matching die to only cut the outline.  And those gold flecks? Again, I used gold foil. Yep! I applied a strong adhesive (Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets used here) in random areas and then just pressed the gold foil on top. Super simple and it totally completes this look. I flicked some of the remaining watercolor on top of the flower and added some more of the Gold Texture Gems™ to the center.
