Roar-some Birthday

I have 2 cards to share today and I have to say - they are my favorite cards I've made with the May Release at Divinity Designs!  This one uses the new Dinosaurs Stamp/Die Duo (love that the die cuts them all out at once - including all the sentiments!) and the new Slimline Pierced Large Windows die along with some other DD products (linked below).   Here's an up close snap of these CUTE dinos: DIVINITY DESIGNS PRODUCTS: Dinosaurs Stamp/Die Duo *NEW Slimline Pierced Large Windows Die Slimline Rectangles Dies Pierced Heart Background Die Slimline Clouds Die Slimline Grasses Die Foam Strips Hop on over to the  Divinity Designs BLOG  to see more weekly inspiration from the Design Team!     ♥ ♥ ♥ Happy Inking!

Namast'ay at Home

Hello crafty friends!  I'm back with another card using some newly released products from La-La Land Crafts ! Oh my goodness, how cute are these li'l Frenchies doing yoga?  They are 3 of 4 dogs in the Paws and Reflect Clear Stamp Set.   I also used the new Half Mandala Die, but before I cut them out, I brushed ink using the Floral Beauty stencil set (from last month's release).  I love how pretty they are - gives them some interest and a pop of color from the white.  To make my scalloped slimline border, I used the largest die from the Scalloped Rectangles Die , and I cut 2 of them and glued together, cutting off just the scalloped parts that overlapped.  I'll show you below.  But before I cut each rectangle, I ran it through EXCEPT for the last scallop on the longest edge.  Then I scooted my die down and cut just a few scallops on the opposite edge.  That way I added 1 scallop in width, so I had 14 scallops instead of 13.  This made it fit my slimline card the best.

April Blessings Box

Hello hello!!   I'm getting a li'l behind in my posting here on my blog -- I don't know where the time is going!  Well... I have been busy, not only making cards, but I'm swapping my craftroom with hubby's office, and shortly after I started it, I started on a mini album (I paid for the online class held last Saturday) and now - that is at a stand-still with a fully covered folding table in the middle of my small livingroom, with half my craftroom also in the livingroom as well as on my dining table and kitchen counter... and my craft counter in the hallway!  I had to make 2 trips to town yesterday to get some cubbies/shelving for the "new" craftroom - drove 30 minutes each way to find out when I got home that the hardware bag had been torn open and missing pieces, so I drove back and returned them (they were the last 2) and drove to 2 more stores and finally got some good ones.  OIY!  SO!!!.... you know what I'll be doing this weekend! ☺ Today's c

Happy Anniversary Poppies

Today's card is a simple Anniversary card.  In hindsight, I do wish I had played with bg colors a li'l bit more and put black behind the red and left the white behind the black.  I feel like it's too much white, however it does show off the Pierced Waves Background die quite well.  I might even try stitched on it with embroidery floss soon!  :)  That would be so pretty right?        DD PRODUCTS: Bold Blessings  Stamp/Die Duo *NEW Pierced Waves Background Die *NEW A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies Scalloped Rectangles Dies Matting Rectangle Die Ornate Hearts Dies Beautiful Blossoms Paper/Die Duo Set 1 Foam Mounting Tape Hop on over to the  Divinity Designs BLOG  to see more weekly inspiration from the Design Team!     ♥ ♥ ♥ Happy Inking!

Club LLLC May Kit

This month's club kit contains both a Marci and Luka and has a formal theme!   For my first card, I tried a Theater Fold Card with the happy couple inside.  The fancy frame Dies on the front and the chandelier on the inside are part of this month's club kit, along with Marci and Luka! It's hard to see, but I stenciled some sun rays behind the chandelier for ambiance ☺ I did not use a die to cut my opening as they weren't large enough - I used my paper trimmer for both the red opening and the gold frame.   I followed Sam's tutorial HERE except I didn't include the 2 middle strips. I skipped the part between 4:30 - 10:15. (3) pieces of 5" x 7" red cardstock - glued 2 of them back to back for card front the other will be for the back of card. (2) pieces that are 4-7/8" x 7" for the sides.  - score each of those at 1-1/4" and 3-1/2" (2) pieces that are 1/2" x 6" LLLC PRODUCTS: May Club Kit Rain and Shine Stencil Set Magical
