Rainbow Dash Birthday

Hi Everyone!

My niece, Avery, is turning 4 soon. She’s currently obsessed with My Little Pony. Rainbow Dash to be exact! My sister is planning her a big birthday and I don’t think there are any secrets – she seems to know everything! I’m planning on baking her rainbow cupcakes and I got toy My Little Pony cupcake toppers for her. She’s getting My Little Pony wall-decals from us and I’m sure there will be plenty more. I’m certain she’ll be spoiled that day!

My sister told me she wanted a Rainbow Dash birthday card – so I found a black and white image online and printed it on Neenah white cardstock. I colored it with copic markers and cut it out to adhere on the card.

The background is a simple ZIG clean color watercolor wash (I used a purple and blue and I forgot to jot down the colors – sorry!). I used the MFT rainbow die and cut it out of each color, adhered them on the watercolor panel, added some shimmer then topped it with a layer of glossy accents.

I used LF’s Puffy Clouds Border dies and cut out several layers in white cardstock and velum to adhere them on the bottom corners of the card. Voila! Took me a few days to put it together because I made this card in spurts but I’m really happy with how it turned out! I hope you love it! I know Avery will 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

XOXO,

Truly, Madly, Deeply

Hi everyone!

Here’s my last card for SCS for the month of March  for the theme: Songs of the Heart.

For my last card, I used a sentiment from Hero Arts set that reminds me of a song growing up – I’m sure many of you know it! “Truly, Madly, Deeply” by Savage Garden was a very popular song and I thought it would be perfect to make a wedding card using it!

I embossed Mama Elephant’s tandem bike in gold and did a pink watercolor wash.

That veil you see – is a piece of used dryer sheet! LOL. I wish I had some lace or tulle but I didn’t have any so I got creative!

Tandem Ride - Truly, Madly, Deeply 3

I addeded a decorative border in Blusing Bride cardstock and finished off this card with a few hearts and sequins. I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Chance of Rain – Blue Skies Ahead

I’m not sure why I can’t kick myself into gear to post these cards from March! This is my 5th card for my first month as a designer with Splitcoastampers. Theme: Songs From the Heart.

This Chance of Rain set is great for encouragement and I have done a card in the past similar to this one and you can view it here.

Chance of Rain

I decided to add more color and character to the card by giving the boy a friend 🙂  Watercolor with Zig Markers are so easy and I really enjoy it!

Chance of Rain - Blue Skies 2

I first stamped and embossed the image. After coloring, I die cut the panel using a stitched border and decided to place it on a blue card base off-set to give it some interest. Very straight forward!

Hope you enjoyed!

Infinity Card

Hi Everyone!

I’m so excited to share this project with you. I saw it on the LiveLoveCards community and wanted to make a video of my own to share in case you are not a member of LiveLoveCards. This card is so much fun and Darlene did an amazing job showing everyone how to do this! My video (first one in over 4 months) isn’t as great as hers – but I hope you can follow along ok.

The card loops endlessly between 4 decorative panels and is never-ending!

I was really nervous about making a video again for the first time – took me forever as I had to relearn the process!

Infinity 1Infinity 2Infinity 3Infinity 4

This card fits an A2 envelope.

Some important dimensions:

Card base requires 4 pieces cut to 4 1/4″ x 2 1/8″ (scored at 1 1/6″ from each end).

Smaller solid/patterned paper for matting (start with 4 of each size for each type of paper): 2″x2″, 2″x 15/16″, 15/16″x 15/16″

Please watch my video for details:

I hope you enjoyed this!
