Pinterest Inspired - September Challenge

Hello everyone,

It's the first of September.  That means another Pinterest Inspired Challenge has just started.  

On this card, I used an embossing folder (by Paper Studios) to create my background.  On a piece of watercolor card stock, I added several colors similar to the colors seen on the inspiration.  Then die cut "hello" from my watercolor card stock and adhered on my embossed background using foam tape.  As finishing touches, I added "Friend" using a label maker and few clear sequins.  Here's my card:

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Can't wait to see what you create!

Welcome to The Alley Way Stamps September Release.  Today, I'm sharing a sneak peek of a set called BIG Time.  I LOVE LOVE this set to pieces.  

On this card, I combined it with Flower Show.  I first stamped "Love" and embossed it with gold embossing powder directly on a card base.  On a piece of card stock, I stamped the flowers around the border and colored them with Copic markers.  With a craft knife, I carefully cut around the flowers and adhered my floral frame over my card base using foam tape.

Paper Sweeties August 2015 Release Rewind!

Hello friend, and welcome back.  It's Paper Sweeties Release Rewind Day.  

Today, I'm sharing a card that combines a new and a previous released stamp/die sets.  I am combining the new set Birthday Banners, and previously released set Wish, and Wish Sweet Cuts.     

On this card, I first stamped my cup cake banners with Memento Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored them with Copic markers.  I LOVE this Birthday Banner stamp set.  And cupcake banner?  Who doesn't like that?  They are so cute and festive.  I used Wish Sweet Cuts to cut the word 3 times and glued them stacked to create some dimension.  Next I stamped the word "big" from Wish stamp set and added a pink rhinestone.  
Please check out our DT for more beautiful inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by!
