If Friends Were Flowers

Hello crafty friends. 
It's Samantha here with my first February make and it's a card for a friend :)

My card is ATC sized which is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. So it's quite small but it say's so much. 
Inside it says 'I'd pick you'.
I started this sweet card by die cutting some circle confetti from white card and gluing in diagonal corners. When that glue was dry I used some of my favourite colours and painted the background. To give the background more layers I stenciled some white circles and coordinating flowers. I then stamped the flower directly on the card and on a separate piece of white card as shown...

By stamping on the card I could then go around the outline with a charcoal pencil. This makes the flower 'pop' a little from the colourful background. I coloured the flower using Prismacolor pencils.
I stamped the text using a random alphabet stamp set. We all have those right?

For the flowers I used the Journal Doodles with a Heart stamp set which can be found right here.

I do hope you like my little card and that I have inspired you just a little.
Wishing you a lovely day.

Love You - Card by Shilpa

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here

Valentine's day is around the corner, so here is the card I made for special someone!

this is quick and easy card with texture and stamping!

I dry embossed the blue card stock paper through embossing folder.

Next I layered another green design paper with torn edges for interest. On white card, I stamped a heart from "Littele Grunge Love" stamp set and pink archival ink.
leaves and flourishes are diecuts, which I colored with peacock feather distress paint. Finally added the sticker sentiment.

Hope you liked this card and got inspired.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Mixed Media Friendship Card

Hi all

Katie here, I am back with a new mixed media card for  our February blog theme which is Friendship. So i made this simple mixed media card to share with a friend.

I started of by taking a 12 x 12 sheet of  Bouquet paper and covering a 5x7 card blank.

I then applied texture using a stencil mask and texture paste before spritzing it with Paris Pink ink.

I took the texture stamp from the Grunge Fun set and added another layer of texture using the A Little Bit Washi set.

I stamped out the kite from the Fly Away set onto smoothe card and coloured it in using alcohol markers before cutting it out.

I stamped the kite stamp into the centre of the card and then cut out part of the coloured image and layered it over the top.

I finished the card off using the smile stamp from the A Little Bit Washi set.

Thank you for visiting

Katie xx

Valentines Love Card

Hello Friends. Larissa here!  Valentine's Day is coming soon. Do you make cards to send to friends and love ones? Here is a simple idea using Susan K Weckesser  A Little Bit Washi stamp set.

I started off stamping each stamp in a different shade of pink ink. I lined them up to see where I wanted each one and then would just stamp them on the cardstock. Because I thought it looked pretty plain I pulled out the Heartfelt Warmth stamp set and used the love stamp to stamp in the middle of the cardstock with the darkest ink.
To give the card a little more I added a few gold sequins and a little gold glitter heart. I hand wrote the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment across the bottom.
I matted the white cardstock onto a piece of hot pink cardstock and then onto a white card base.

I hope you enjoyed my post today.
Remember I used:

Have a wonderful day friends.

How to Add Personality to Your Craft Bag!

Hello Wonderful World of Creative People! Lynne here today for my second design team post for January, where our theme for the month is Tags of Love, and I want to share with you these sweet little luggage tags I created for my crafting tool bag.  
I got the idea from these wonderful, self-laminating luggage tags I found in my LDS (Local Dollar Store) and I am going to use them on all my portable scrapping and crafting bags and totes.

I filled in the card provided with all my contact information and then stamped and colored a business card-sized piece of white cardstock for the front... that's it!  The sky is the limit... Anything Goes and what sweet little pops of color they create!
Here is my very favorite tool tote modeling my tags!  If you want to know more about this bag please do pop on over to my blog to get the in-depth review of this fabulous tote!
Cheers and have a Wonderful Day
