Paper Smooches SPARKS April Anything Goes (wk3) challenge

Hello, friends:}
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week is another ANYTHING GOES challenge. EASIEST challenge EVER!
I created this card a couple of weeks ago... I was on the phone with my younger brother and decided to mess around with my Tsukineko Kaleidacolor ink pads. I used them to make a watercolor design and LOOOOOOOOOVED the result. 

The only problem is that I couldn't remember how I did it! LOL! I was talking with Carrel and crafting...and then all of a sudden realized that I needed to remember how I created my card! LOL! 

So I went online to find a card design that I could CASE--- I love this watercolor look so much that I wanted it to pop! I wasn't sure how to do that (this is my FIRST time working with "watercolors")....and sometimes I get stuck and need inspiration! I came across THIS layout by Wilna. She used paints but it was the exact look I was looking for! I CASED her page design using striped washi tape, splatters (made with my Imagine Crafts irRESISTible Tuxedo Black spray), and the white die cut over the design. LOOOOOOVE! ThanksWilna for sharing your creation and for inspiring me:) 
I used the Paper Smooches Simply Said and Happy Birthday sentiments along with the PS Birthday Words die cuts. LOOOOOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out! 
I kind of hate that I had to CASE Wilna's design-- I wish I would have thought of this myself! LOVE it! 

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love
And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details. This challenge ends April 26th. I cannot wait to see what you make!!!

Chickaniddy: Hello Spring card

Hello, friends:)
 photo picasioncom_8146e2e38e727ecc241fe5a27ac0c266.gif

Today I'm sharing a Chickaniddy project using the new Twirly Girly collection. These papers, embellishments, and stickers are perfect for Spring and just about any girly-girl! LOVE

I created a very simple Spring card basing my entire design around a tag that I found in the 6x6 Twirly Girly paper pad. I knew that I wanted to layer a couple of banners/tags together. I also knew I wanted to use these super cute pink polka dot alpha stickers for part of the sentiment! 



I added a butterfly clip and hemp cord to add a bit of extra flair to the tags! I added glossy accents to the Chickaniddy alpha stickers to finish my card. I LOVE the simplicity but details on this card! LOVE!  

Chickaniddy Supplies: Paper Piggy Tails (TG140S12), This & That (TG140S07), 6x6 paper pad (TG14PD01); Stamps Date Night (DN14ST01); Stickers Twirly Girl (TG14EB01); Reverse Confetti die: Tag Me; Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko: VeraMark ink, Gold embossing powder

I really love using alpha stickers on my cards and creations. To make it easier to apply these letters in a straight line, I just add them using a ruler and tweezers. 

1. Create card base using polka dot paper.
2. Die cut banner using yellow diagonal paper.
3. Cut out tag and punch a hole.
4. Add alpha stickers (using a ruler and tweezers).
5. Stamp and emboss sentiment.
6. Add banner and tag to card using foam dots.
7. Finish card by adding hemp cord, butterfly clip, and glossy accents to alpha stickers.
I hope that you will use the new Twirly Girly Chickaniddy  alpha stickers on your next project! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy SPRING!!!!!!! Be blessed:)

VIDEO: Reverse Confetti April Color challenge

Hello, friends:}


I'm sharing a video today using some NEW Reverse Confetti stamps and dies! 

This card was inspired by the RC April Color Challenge {light blue, green, plum}. 


I have to say that this card really took me out of my comfort zone! Get ready for this.....I colored with Copics! OH MY! 
Look at that coloring on the bunny--- WOWZA! I knock my socks off;) Just kidding! I need LOTS of practice with coloring! This is just "outlining"! LOL! 

My friend Trisha stopped by yesterday and we practiced coloring the little bunny from the RC Bebe Bunny set. I felt pretty good after Trisha left... but then during my video.... I had to text her twice to show her how I was doing! LOL! 

Here's the video! Hope you enjoy:}
I used some Imagine Crafts gold embossing powder for the sentiment (RC All About You stamp set). I also used some sequins that I got from Pretty Pink Posh. Add in a RC Love Note die cut heart and Double Edge Scallop Border.... and that's my card:) 
That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the Reverse Confetti blog for more inspiration and to join in the FUN with the April Color challenge! And be sure to follow us on Facebook HERE

Paper Smooches SPARKS April Picture Perfect challenge

Hello, friends:}
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week is a Picture Perfect challenge.  







This week we are inspired by the following picture:

So I was inspired by soooooo much from this photo--- but I focused on the different types of banners and the reason for banners and celebrating. Those are two major ways I was inspired for today's creation! 

I absolutely
LOOOOOOOOOVE this card! It's going to be extremely hard to send this to my sister-in-law (who's expecting their 2nd child). I know this because it was SOOOOO hard to cut those beautiful papers by Crate Paper. I love this color combo!!! And I love that hemp cord! I love that little bunny- he's so sweet and hanging on the wrapped banner! I also love the polaroid with the gold embossed sentiment inside! I love love love that gold embossing powder by Imagine Crafts! I LOOOOOVE it! I used the Paper Smooches A Magical Spring and Pip Squeaks stamp sets along with the Hearts and Flag Tag dies for this card. LOOOOOOVE! I seriously love it so much! 
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love

And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details. This challenge ends April 19th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I actually can't wait to see what you are inspired by in this photo!!

Hello, friends:}

***Giveaway details below:)

Today is the 8th of the month and that means it's time for a creative blog hop with the Reverse Confetti DT and friends! We are inspiring you with projects and cards using the NEW release stamp sets (well... all of the RC stamps really!). We also have some EXTRA fans joining in the fun with the DT!!! ***GIVEAWAY: you could win a $15 gift certificate!!! Just leave a comment on the hop posts! Comments stay open until the 10th at noon CST.

We have tons of inspiration for you to see using RC's brand new stamp sets and CONFETTI CUT die cuts!!! 

I decided to share two cards today! They are very similar but different because one could be for a girl and the other for a guy! 
I used the RC SFYTT #11 as my design base-- ok.... I know what you are thinking! "Sav didn't follow the sketch!" You are right! If you know me, I tend to stray from the sketches:) I used the three rectangles as my inspiration for the feathers. I wanted the larger center panel to be the sentiment. The only way that would work with the vellum feathers is to almost take it out of the sketch. OOPS!
I used the Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night and Twirly Girl papers and embellishments for both cards. LOOOOOOOVE! I used the RC Paper Crane for both cards, as well as the Petals 'N Posies for the little dots (up in the right hand corner of the image) on the feathers for the second card. LOVE that little detail! These cards are PERFECT for the two people in my life who are graduating SOON!!!!!!!! 
Tsukineko: Memento Luxe Espresso Truffle
