Blog Hop Day 2

Happy Tuesday!!

Welcome back to  Day 2 of our week-long blog hop!
We have teamed up with 
to create a really fun blog hop 
that will be filled with inspiring projects using our 
and gorgeous Craft Metal Sheets from Add A Little Dazzle. 

Each day this week, we'll have a new lineup for you to hop through.

I barely used any ink on my creation for today.
I know! I'm shocked too! LOL!
These metal sheets really are a lot of fun, 
and I like how you can move and shape them.
Check out what I did with 4 Petal Fri-Dies and Casual Vine Fri-Dies using 

I cut 3 of the vines and gently bent them into half circles,
 then layered them together to form a pretty wreath. 

I added a few of the small 4 Petal flowers, gently bending the petals up a bit to give them a little sass,  and finished them off with a dab of Diamond Stickles. 
 The simple but elegant sentiment from Christmas Carols was the finishing touch.

I really like this card, but as I'm typing this post, it occurs to me that this would make a stunning gift tag!

Blog Hop Day 1

Happy Monday! 
I'm so glad you're here!!
We have an entire week of FUN planned for you that will have you hopping! 

We have teamed up with

Let's kick this into gear, shall we?

I had some fun with our 
and a couple gorgeous fall colored Metallic sheets from Add A Little Dazzle ....

To create this card, I inked up the wreath image sloppily and stamped it just as sloppily, turning it and moving it as I stamping it off several times to create the grungy background on the cardfront.
I cut the Oval Tag from chipboard and then painted it white. I stamped 2 of the sentiments from Wheat Wreath in a really dark brown distress ink. I love the way the color muted out as it soaked into the white background.

Using Brushed Bronze and Outrageously Orange Craft Metal Sheets, 
and our Casual Trees Fri-Dies, I cut 2 pretty branches and tied them together with 
Jute Rope twine from Canvas Corp. 
I love the bright metal sheen paired with the rustic twine.
Such a homey feel!

Happy Friday!! 

Are you ready for some WOW factor?? 
Girl Friday Virginia has not 1, but 2 awesome cards to share with you today! 
They are bright, fun and totally inspiring.
Check out this first card that features our new Bell Tag Fri-Dies and it's coordinating stamp set Sleigh Bells...

This happy bell looks so darling with a big sequin ringer. Super fun design idea! 
I really like the little sentiments stamped in bright colors that match the fun designer paper.

Next, she used the same Bell Tags Fri-Dies, but paired it with our new Pinecones stamp set... 

She created sort of a faux shaker card but cutting the bell shape, then backing it with pretty designer paper, and slipping acetate between. 
I love that she stamped the pine boughs above it so that it looks like it's tied into a Christmas tree.
Just darling!

Who's loving those Bells??? Me!!!!!!!!

Happy Tuesday!

I hope you are ready for some serious oohing and aahing today!
Girl Friday Deepti got inky with our 
and boy, oh boy, has she created some stunners for you!

Using distress inks, and watercolor technique, she has created a gorgeous 
card filled with motion.  I love how she curved the sentiments to follow the brushstrokes. 
You can do this by simply curving the stamp onto your block. It's really easy!
I think the addition of the 4 Petal Fri-Die flowers add a wonderful fall touch.

But wait! There's more...
Oh gosh, that's gorgeous!!
More watercolor technique but this time she added a white embossed sentiment 
which perfectly balances the white space at the top of her card. 
Super awesome use of color.
Please be sure to visit her blog to get more details on her creations.

Well, I just love what she did with Amber Waves, don't you?!
I think I'm finally ready for fall!

Happy Saturday!! 

I've got a spectacular project to show you today from Girl Friday Marcie, 
and a few fun announcements!! 

Let's start with the eye candy, shall we??

Marcie got inky with our Bold Wishes stamp set, and Funky Round Fri-Dies...

I love the soft pattern behind the bold sentiments!!!! 
Here are a few design notes from Marcie...
I used the small border from Bold Wishes to create a light background on both the mini card and the Funky Round tag; then I used watercolor paints to flick on some bright splatters and then stamped the sentiments in black for a big and bold effect. A great birthday combo!

I really like that she did a mini card. 
I don't know about you, but I often forget to do a card in a different size.

 Marcie's project brings me to one of our announcements...
Bold Wishes is back in stock! Yay!
Also back in stock are:

Happy Monday!!

Wow, what an incredible weekend I had in Orlando!!
There will be lots of new stores added soon to our Local Scrapbook Stores tab for you to visit!! Yay!!!

I also have a positively delicious card to share with you today from Girl Friday Zoey.
She got inky with Wallflower and...well, lookie at this!!

Admit it.
Your jaw just hit your keyboard didn't it.
I know.
Mine did too!

Here are a few design notes from Zoey...
Technique: I stamped my background with the three flower in the stamp set with versamark ink and then poured over some gold embossing powder. Then I took an old brush and I removed all the embossing powder from the flowers -- that left the lightly gold image . I did not heat set it otherwise it was going to be shiny.
I added more flower in the bottom corner and added embossing powder, this time I embossed it.
I stamped the sentiment and added some foam adhesive and placed it over the embossed flowers so they would just slightly peek through the sides

I'm in awe.
The gorgeous colors and the wonderful techniques really add up to a gorgeous card!!
