Jillibean Soup Colorful Rainbow Cards

I confess.. if you ask me my favorite color, I’m going to have a hard time giving you an answer. It’s like trying to choose just one marker from your favorite pack. I can’t live with just one … I want them ALL! 
There’s just something about a rainbow of color that makes my heart happy! Today I’m sharing three cards made with the You Make Miso Happy Collection. The beautiful colors and sweet images are sure to make YOU SO Happy! LOL!
I arrange the Peapod Parts on a clear piece of clear plastic the same size as my card base. When I’m happy with the arrangement I lay the sheet over different pattern papers until I’m happy. 
To keep the florals from disappearing into the “Green Chard” calendar pattern paper I added some circles cut from patterns in the pack that are more “solid” with less intricate patterns. 
A scene card made from pattern papers is sure to make you smile! I cut waves of grass from shades of green pattern paper. The blue sky is cut from a 4x6 journaling card print. 
To add dimension and life to the card the big blue house is attached flat to the card while the other two houses are adhered with adhesive foam tape. TIP: You can make your own adhesive foam tape by adding double sided tape to inexpensive craft foam.
A little imagination turns the Peapod Parts leaf shapes into trees and a yellow doily shape becomes a sun.
This will be a great card to welcome someone to the neighborhood, or congratulate them on a new home.
My most favorite images to work with are FLOWERS! Like a butterfly, I’m drawn to their color and scent. These are so pretty! Just a feast for my eyes!
Again, I arranged the florals on a piece of plastic. I “grounded” them by adding a blue print along the bottom of the card. This prevents the images from looking like they’re “floating”.
I try to add elements in threes. The focal point is the three large flowers adhered with adhesive foam tape. Next I tuck the leaves under the florals. 
The finishing touches are the accents.. the little bird, dark blue florals and flowers flitting by. A blue doily makes a sunny sky for our beautiful garden. 
Are you smiling? Then our beautiful rainbow colors did the trick!

Sugar Pea Designs September Release Day 5
Floral Pocket

It's the very last day of the Sugar Pea Designs Sweet Peek Week. We've enjoyed sharing projects with the new September release ALL WEEK! Today we're closing with my favorites from the new release. 
This is the new FLORAL POCKET TAG. It's a folding tag Sugar Cut die with LOTS of die cut florals to decorate the pocket. I stamped the new BUFFALO CHECK on the inside of the light blue tag to give the tag a country feel. 
The pocket is perfectly sized to hold a gift card and looks so pretty decorated! 
You can use the same pocket die as the base for the new CHRISTMAS CHARACTERS. The Sugar Cuts die set includes everything you need to decorate the FLORAL POCKET TAG to make all five of these sweet characters. 
You adhere the die cut pieces to the full size side of the tag so the pocket will actually be on the back of these cuties. 
The set includes all you need but, I added silly eyes to all my characters to add a little animation. Half pearls in pink and red were used for berries in the holly to add dimension.   I added  a fuzzy pom pom on the tail of his hat too! 
I cut all the belt buckles with gold foil card stock for a metallic shine. 
The penguin arms are a one piece die cut that adheres behind the white body. I cut the FLORAL POCKET TAG from black card stock and adhered all the pieces to it. It's very easy to assemble all the pieces, and many of the die cuts have a dual purpose. 
The antlers on the reindeer are also the stick arms for the snowman. The tan chest of the reindeer is also the face of the elf. 
And the little belt for Santa and the elf is also the scarf for the snowman. I had so much fun that I made FOUR of each design.
These will make a great handout at school or work with a gift card or suckers tucked in the back.

Ready to see more made with today's peeks? Here's a complete list of designers with projects to share today.

Tag You're It - Vintage Buttons

Do you love tags? Then do I have a challenge for you! Check out the inspiration at Tag You're It challenge blog this time! 
What gorgeous vintage inspiration from design team member Donna Peachey! I love the beautiful tag, colorful buttons, and floral peeking through the buttons. 
I started with a Zig Zag Rectangle from Sugar Pea Designs. I used a We R Memory Keepers punch to add the unique hole for the tag. Pretty Meadow Motif flowers adorn the top of the tag. A sentiment from Pretty Peonies is lined up along the bottom. 
The buttons I had in my stash. I 'm embarrassed to admit how many are lurking around my house.. they're hard for me to resist! Especially pretty ones like these! 
Now it's your turn to play! I sure hope you'll join me at Tag You're It! Click here to jump to the blog where you'll find more inspiration from our design team and all the details on how to link up your own design!

Pretty Little Studio - Make A Wish

Thanks for stopping by! I sure hope you're having a great day! Today's sweet escape is this pretty pink and lime confection made with the Pretty Little Studio Fun In The Sun Collection
I layered background papers - each layer slightly smaller than the last. A pink labeled 3x4 journaling card from the Summer Vibes pack tops the pretty paper. 
Flowers and foliage are from the Good Vibes die cut pack. I adhered the flowers with adhesive foam tape and the foliage is adhered directly to the card base. This adds dimension to the card and brings life to the die cut flowers.
The pink label journaling card had a sentiment printed on it. I covered the sentiment with florals, and added my own stamped sentiment to a die cut label from At The Beach. A sprinkle of sequins always makes me happy.... these are Umbrella Pink and Rose Pink.
Wishing you a great day with some time to make Make MAKE!
