A Few Somethings..... For You!

I have something just for you today. Something a little crafty and some exciting news from me. First up is this darling tag. It's no secret, I love the newest tag from Reverse Confetti. It's called Tag Me, Too. I love the shape, and I REALLLLY love that there are some darling scripty words included. Bonus!

I cut the words from Black licorice cs and placed them on some layered vellum circles from Circles 'n Scallops. I topped it all off with some pretty sequins and stars cut with Oh My Stars confetti cuts.

TCPTues273-Just Because Butterfly

 It's time for another go round with the fun and fabulous TCPTues Challenges. It's an inspiration photo this time. I was inspired by the colors from the photo and when I think of flowers, I think of butterflies so I used this awesome Lacey Butterfly Die

I'm using the current Deconstructed Sketch with this one. I love that I had some of the great TCP dies to make it work. For the circle I used the Framed Up 2 die as well as the banner pieces.

I also added dots with the Dots cutups used to emboss my kraft cardstock. 

Here is the inspiration photo:

Sweet Sunday Sketch 232-Enjoy

It's been a soccer filled weekend for us with a tournament kicking off the season. Thankfully I had Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch to work with and get me a little stampy time. I used the super cool new Fancy Feathers stamp set and matching die for my card today.

As you can see, I kept it super simple. The papers are Chickaniddy and I used the Stitched mats Rectangles and Sqaures from Lil' Inker Designs for my layers. I embossed the feather with some calypso coral embossing powder and tied on a sweet buttoney bow!

Here is the sketch:

Come Play along: simply make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of Karen's post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time).

Curtain Call {tropical trip}

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

I tried to use the bright fun colors from the sample but I was drawn to  more muted tones. I did play up the red and used an arrow die that reminded me of those wooden signs. With the beach theme, I thought of this sweet girl from Seaside Wishes by SugarPea Designs. 

I used a wood grain impression plate to give some texture to the card front. I also pieced up her dress, while coloring the rest of her with my copics. 

Here's a closer look at the sign.  I wrapped it with some red burlap twine. 

The sketch is the current SugarSketch 09
I'm linking it up. Come check out what the rest of the DT did.

Reverse Confetti Aug. SFYTT- Come Play Along

The August Sketch For You To Try is still up on the Reverse Confetti Blog. I have a card to inspire you to play along. 

My mom's birthday was last week, so I made this for her. It decided on soft and pretty and used LOTS of RC products. The birthday sentiment is from All About You. I stamped it on the banner piece from Tag Me. The base for my sentiment is a layer of the Love Note scallop frame, topped with the Chevron Pretty Panels. I then cut 3 of the "you" die cut word from Tag Me, Too. I glued them together and added them to the bottom. Love the dimension it gives to die cut words. It allows me to give it that popped up look with out using teeny tiny dimensionals.  The little prezzie is from Celebrate Cake

There are so many layers on this card. I love it and hope my mom  will to. Along the bottom horizontal strip I added one more touch of pretty with the Double Edge Scallop border. I used the smaller edge cuz I just love it peeking out from behind the lighter strip. 

Here is the sketch:
