You're Loved.Everyday.Period.

Another quick post today. I got my order from the Grand Re-Opening of The Sweet Stamp Shop speedy FAST (gosh I LOVE that!) on Monday and couldn't help myself. These adorable Pandas were staring me down. The set is called Perfect Panda

It's a little skinny card, measuring 3.75 x 5.5. The white stitched panel is from Lil' Inkers Designs. It's called Long & Skinny Rectangles. It was the perfect size to create my scene. I grounded the sweet panda with some copic marker coloring. Some sequins and an enamel heart were my other embellies. I finished off the card with a touch of Crystal Effects to the stamped balloon for a more realistic look. 

The sentiment is awesome. It's how I feel about my kids. I think this will make the prefect card for a little pick me up one day. I'll tuck it away in my stash for one of those rough weeks or days. Sometimes a little reminder of how much they are loved is just what they need. 
Happy Friday crafty peeps and thanks for stopping by today.

Hello {color throwdown and Deconstructed Sketch}

Some days a quick and simple card is just what the creative mind needs. I took a break from some DT work to play with the Color Throwdown and The Deconstructed Sketch. I loved them both and I pulled out my Reverse Confetti products from the latest release. 

I have been saving this Pina Colada Quick Card Panel. It's my FAVE of the pack. I cut the circle from Circles 'n Scallops confetti cuts and layered on the Hello confetti cut. I cut three of the words and layered them on top of each other. 

You can see the three layers I adhered together in this shot. I also added a few accents with the Shakers 'n Frames confetti cuts. Those sweet little hearts are part of that Confetti Cut set. 

I'm linking this up the the Color Throwdown no.338

Here is the sketch I used for this card. 

Here is a closer look at the products I used today. 

Hope your Wenesday is going great! See you back here soon!

TCPTues 288 {have a wonderful day}

It's time for another fun TCPTuesday Challenge. This week is a pretty color challenge by Wendy. I was definitely feeling springy with these colors and pulled out a few of the TCP butterfly dies. 

Center stage is the Lacey Butterfly CutUps. The little teeny butterflies are from Butterflies CutUps. I scattered some sequins across the card front and then stamped a sentiment from Aye, Eye, I. I actually selectively inks up two different stamps to create this one. 

Hop on over to the TCP Blog for all the challenge details and to see what the rest of the talented DT created with these colors. There are some beautiful cards, I promise! That's where you'll also find the link up. Come join the fun!

Sweet Sunday Sketch 264 {}

Hello stampy friends! It's a beautiful Sunday and I have a new card with the latest Sweet Sunday Sketch! We love our new blog, I hope you have been over there to check it out AND to play along. 

I used some sweet brand spankin' new Reverse Confetti stamps and dies. Something about pineapples and that sentiment, "",  just go together....can you say Sponge Bob? ha! lol. 

So......if you have no idea what I'm talking's the video link. Don't hate me! 
Here is my card. I used the new Pina Colada Quick Cards along with the new Pineapples Aplenty stamp set and coordinating Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts. I love having those dies to cut quick prefect images. 

I added the die cut "thanks" to the top of my pineapple. It's part of the awesome new scripty words called Fancy Words. I cut it from black licorice cardstock. That banner tab along the bottom is a new set, too. It's called Layered Banner Duo. I love the size of them. It was a prefect fit to the sketch this week. 
Speaking of the sketch. Check it out. 

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to hop over to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog to see what the talented team did with the sketch. It's a good one!

Lil' Inker Designs Monthly Meet Up

It's time for the April Monthly Meet Up Challenge with Lil' Inker Designs. I'm a sucker for challenges, and when it gives me an excuse to use some of my favorite products,well, I'm all in! 

I started out by cutting the largest, A2 sized, Dual Stitched Rectangle. I then pulled out the Wonky Squares dies because it paired so well with the Darling Diamonds stamp set.  I can't believe I had never inked up this stamp set before. Shame on me! It's so cool. I used the smallest die to cut out a few diamonds so I could stamp a few pretty diamonds inside of them.  

Pop on over to the LID Blog for all the challenge details and link up. 
Come play along for a chance at a BIG gift certificate! Who doesn't love FREE shopping?

Hope you are enjoying your weekend! 
Check back tomorrow for the next Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!

Reverse Confetti April Release Blog Hop

 Today is the day!! It's the 8th of April and Eight is GREAT.....that means it's time to finally shop the New Release from Reverse Confetti. You can find all the new release information over on the RC Blog

All of the new goodies…5 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts die sets and the new *limited edition* Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS are available now.......You can SHOP the new release HERE!

Before you head off to fill up your shopping carts, I hope you are checking out all the amazing creations the Design Team has created for today's hop. You should have arrived here from the super talented Tara. I've been drooling over her creations all week. 

I have had this card in my head for the past week. It finally felt good to get it out of my head and actually down on paper. I used the super cool and very versatile Shakers 'n Frames to make a frame for my birthday lion. I love how he is peeking out of the window. 

oh, how I LOVE this new Leaping Lion stamp set. I colored him up with Copic markers and then used the coordinating Leaping Lion Confetti Cut. I also used the banner included in the Leaping Lion Confetti cut to add some glitter to my window. I also stamped the banner stamp and cut it out with the die and seperated one of the triangles to make a party hat for my lion. I topped it with a sequin. Cute touch, dontcha think?! 

The sentiments are from the Fancy Word Coordinate stamp set and Fancy Word die. The font on that die set is so, so pretty! I also tucked in a Documented Confetti Cut rounded rectangle panel behind my frame. 

I used the Fancy Word Confetti Cuts again on this second card, but this time I opted to use the negative space. I think it's such a great look. 

I used the Color Me Happy stamp set to create the artsy feel of this card. It was super easy and really quick to pull together. I loved the color combo of Limelight, Blueberry, and Summer Splash. I stamped the smooth white panel first and then ran it through my die cut machine with the word die. I was careful to save the little word pieces so I could fill in the word and make the negative space pop. 

Some twine and a scattering of sequins finished this one off. I did use some foam dimensionals to pop up the front panel. 

Here is a closer look at the new products I used today. 
I love them all and can't wait to see what you all create!

That wraps up this release from me, today. 
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out all my release projects.
