Winter Birthday


Hi Friends! I hope you're having a great day! Today I'm sharing a card made with the new Pretty Little Studio Frosty Collection.
This collection is great for Christmas, Winter and YES! Even a Winter Birthday too!
  
I topped pattern paper with a Snow Angel Frame. I added a sweet deer from the same pack in the center of the frame. The frame is embellished with a sentiment flair and a Snow Cream flag.
A fuzzy socks tab in coordinating pink is tucked under the frame on the left and lots of stickers add contrast and interest .

This collection celebrates the magic of winter in the most beautiful way. I hope you'll check out this amazing collection!

Birthday Fishes and Underwater Wishes

Sending you best fishes and underwater greetings today! Making some punny scenes couldn't be easier than with the new Poppystamps whittles.
My cards always start with images arranged on a piece of plastic the size of my card base. I can play around with arrangement and decide on what colors I want to use before I commit. The clear plastic sheet allows me to slide different colors underneath to coordinate the designs.
The single cover with a stamped sentiment looked a little flat to me so I added two more layers of cardstock underneath. I wanted to mimic the layers of shades and shadow you might see in an underwater scene.
The Whittle Seascape is double cut to add more dimension to the design. The fish are cut from rainbow colors and adhered with adhesive foam tape. I added some silly eyes to the Whittle Happy Octopus, and some Memory Box Fairy Drops are underwater b
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Fusion Card Challenge - Playful Pup

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! If you're looking for a new challenge you'll find another winner at Fusion Card Challenge . You'll love this challenge because there are three ways to play.. you can play along with the sketch, be inspired by the photo, or FUSE them together and play with BOTH!

So how cute is this? What a sweet pup with a pretty bouquet of flowers and a thank you! Being a dog mom, I love the little pup and the sweet gesture. You can spin the photo into dogs, flowers, or even the colors of the flowers. If you're not inspired by what you see in the photo.. then you're welcome to play along with the sketch. If you're feeling really clever you can FUSE them together.

My card started with Pretty Pink Posh Peonies in shades the same colors as the ones in the inspiration photo. I like to color the petals in different shades of the same color family vs. blending the colors together. It's simpler and it adds more contrast.
I arranged the peonies on a Distress Oxide panel in shades of yellow and orange. I tucked a few Playful Puppies among the florals and added a sentiment from the Simple Sentiments Stamp Set.
Most of the images on my card are adhered with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension - a few of the leaves are flat on the card base. I added a few jewels to add some sparkle and shine.
It's time to stick your neck out!! LOL!!! Because now it's your turn! Maybe you need a little more inspiration? Check out designs from the rest of the team. Just click on their names below to jump to their blogs.


I hope I see you at Fusion Card Challenge! I cant wait to see what you make!
