Little Tangles Challenge 72

Hello! Popping in today with a card I made for Little Tangles Challenge 72. Here's the sketch:


And here's my take:


We recently went to a picnic hosted by one of Tony's colleagues, and I wanted to send her a thank you note. She loves all things modern, and Scandinavian Prints (with all of its versatile mix-and-match pieces) was perfect for creating a colorful, modern bouquet of flowers to send her way!


The sentiment is from Kindness Matters, one of my all-time favorite stamp sets from Neat & Tangled! So sweet!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hope you're having a fabulous week!

Hello! I'm up on the DeNami Design Blog today sharing a fun little pillow box I created using a couple of the newest stamps from DeNami Design plus the handy dandy GF06 Small Pillow Box Template.

My mom’s birthday is coming up, and I needed to package up a gift card that we bought for her. My mom loves strawberry daiquiris (especially in the summertime), so I thought it would be cute to decorate my packaging with the daiquiri image from the NEW CL-PF74 Happy Cocktails set and the smiley strawberry image from the NEW CL-PF68 Happy Summer Fruit set. Here’s how it turned out:


To start, I cut the GF06 Small Pillow Box Template along the solid lines and scored along the dotted lines. Then, I flipped the template over, stamped the images and added color with markers. I die-cut the round tag from the PPPD16 Pretty Pink Posh Mini Tags Die Set from PC35 Magenta cardstock. I die-cut a smaller circle from white cardstock, stamped the daiquiri image, added color with markers and adhered it to the top of the magenta tag with foam tape. I assembled the pillow box, inserted the gift card, and then tied on the tag with some baker’s twine. To finish, I added some sparkle with a glitter pen. Here’s a closer look:


I hope you like my project for today, and I hope this fun packaging makes my mom smile!

Have a fabulous week!

Congratulations!

My oldest nephew recently graduated from Officer Candidates School for the U.S. Marine Corps. I wanted to make him an extra special card for the occasion. Here's what I came up with:


I started with a 5.25" x 4" panel of kraft cardstock. I die-cut the map shape using the What The Doodle: Map Die from Papertrey Ink, stamped the sentiment below it and adhered the panel onto a white A2 card base (completely covering the base with Scor-Tape). This left me with a negative space map outline to "fill in." I die-cut the map three more times (from red, white and blue cardstocks). I layered the three maps on top of each other and held them together with some washi tape. Then, I cut them (all at the same time) to create the blue section on the left and the stripes on the right. I used a tiny star from the Stitched Labels Dies by Pretty Pink Posh and die-cut the stars into the blue section. Then, I die-cut seven stars from white cardstock to fit into those spots. I then placed the colored cardstock pieces of my map into place within the negative space to fill it all in.

To finish, I added a touch of clear sparkle to the stars with a glitter pen.

I hope you like my creation for today! I was pretty excited about how this turned out. I hope Jake likes it!

Holy Ship!

Playing along with Retro Sketches Challenge #228. I always love their sketches! Plus I recently got the Stay Salty set from the most recent Essentials By Ellen release and wanted to ink it up right away. I absolutely adore all of the sweet images and fun sentiments in this set!

Here's the sketch:


And here's my take:


The papers are from the By The Sea 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye.


I stamped the sentiment ("Holy Ship! It's your birthday!") on the inside. Makes me smile every time I read it!


Have a great weekend!

Birthday Party Treat Bag



Happy Monday! I'm up on the DeNami Design Blog today! This week we have a “Birthday Party” theme for our design team projects. I decided to make a birthday party treat bag featuring the NEW CL-F259 Medium Owl W/Balloon stamp.


These would be super simple to mass produce for a party. I die-cut a banner from white cardstock. I stamped the CL-N149 Solid Scallop twice at the top. Note: I curved the scallop on my acrylic block and then stamped it at two different angles to look like party decorations. I stamped the owl, added color with markers and a touch of sparkle with a glitter pen. Then, I added the sentiment at the top. I layered the stamped banner onto a banner cut from patterned paper and stapled it to a glassine treat bag (making sure I hid the staple behind the white banner).

Here’s a closer look:

Missing You



Hello! I'm up on the DeNami Design Blog today sharing a card that features the recently released CL-D199 Little Heart Flowers and CL-E214 Missing You sentiment.


That little trio of flowers melts my heart! Isn’t it sweet?!?! And I absolutely love the font of the “Missing You” sentiment. So pretty!

I embossed a 5.5” x 4.25” white cardstock panel and adhered it to the front of a blank white card. I cut a 1.5” strip of white cardstock, stamped my images and sentiment across it, added color with markers and added a touch of sparkle with a clear glitter pen. I layered the stamped strip onto a 1.75” magenta cardstock strip and then adhered that to a strip of petal pink cardstock that had been die-cut with a stitched scallop border. To finish, I added the layered strips to the bottom portion of my card front and tied on some baker’s twine. Here’s a closer look:
