It's Your Day to Sparkle

Oh how I love this Happy Day stamp set by Concord & 9th. It's so beautiful and the sentiment I stamped inside is so perfect for a jeweler friend of mine. It says "It's your day to sparkle".  This friend is very special to me. She is hands down the most positive person I know. She pretty much sparkles everyday, but I want her birthday to be extra sparkly!

If you know me then you know I love everything that sparkles. I pretty much have to add glitter to all my projects.  Hope you like the card and it inspires you to add a little sparkle in your day.

The Sky's The Limit

Hello Friends!  Katie here with a fun card for you today and it starts with the fun Lawn Fawn Wild for You stamp set.  


I used the set and colored that sweet giraffe with my Copics.  I set him up with the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider Die. The clouds and sentiment are from the Lawn Fawn Blue Skies stamp set, I added a little colors to the clouds to make them pop.  Under the sweet guy is Doodlebug Green Grass Washi Tape which perfectly sets the stage.  Guess what happens when you slide this tab up?!



Isn't he just the cutest!  He absolutely needed this long neck to go with the sentiment.  To make the neck I simply used a ruler and and a Copic fine point pen.  I masked along the edges and took the snow drop from the Lawn Fawn Christmas Snow Globe set to make those perfect circles.  Once colored I added some leaves and fronds from MFT, I added a little extra color to them for depth.  

I hope you enjoyed this card and will join us for this month's challenge!

Fintastic Day!



Kimberly Wiener here with a fun card featuring the pre-watercolored cardstock by Concord & 9th, and the Waffle Flower Little Mermaids clear stamp set from The Heart Desires Store

For my card, I found a great spot for the sentiment and then a balanced area for the main image.  The Waffle Flower images were fussy cut and popped up on foam mount tape.  I used the colors from the latest THD Challenge so FUN, right?

You're a Treasure

Hi there! It's Lenae here from SugarGem. 

Oh my word I'm sure you have seen the Magic Slider die from Lawn Fawn, but if you haven't go check it out over at the Heart Desires Store! It's such a fun die set and has a lot of fun dies that can also be used without the slider mechanism dies. For example the stitched oval, stitched rectangle and stitched heart dies.  You definitely want to get the Lawn Fawn Push Here Stamp Set  to go with the Lawn Fawn Interactive Dies.   I also used the new Lawn Fawn Ahoy, Matey

I needed this set just for that darling treasure chest and the little diamond! The plaid paper is Lawn Fawn Plaid Christmas Paper 6x6. The Christmas pad is actually really great for all year long. 

Swoon! 


Thanks for taking a look and be sure to check out the new Challenge #13.

XOXO
