Happiness Always

Today's card is a wedding card I made. I love making wedding cards sparkle -- so the more bling I can get on a wedding card, the better I feel. LOL

I used an embossing folder....and added bling to every single little flower. It's a cool effect, and I can add a pop of color to the embossing.

It's a Leafy Cross

Hi guys. I'm back to share another card.

This time I used the Darice Cross embossing folder. I love working with this folder! It's beautiful and it doesn't need a bunch of anything to make the card look amazing.

I also used a leaf clear stamp that I've had in my stash for years, but never really found a way to use it (I don't like the stamped image all that much on it's own). So when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I decided to give my leaf stamp a try.

I embossed the white cardstock first, then stamped the green leaves image (masking the cross)....and finally took some black ink and simply went over the embossing...and the words popped out! Simple and lots of fun! :)

My Valentine

Hey guys. Just a quick post with my valentine's card for my hubby. I used a Die cut I've had in my stash for over a year and just never got around to trying it.

Of course I had fun  and had to bling it up. All things look greater with a bit of sparkle. :)

I put everything onto dimensional dots to make it pop.

Here's a full view: 

 and some challenges to enter: -- die cuts -- valentine -- anything goes
one stitch at a time: love is in the air -- hearts -- stamp and dies

It was a fun card to make.

Paper Tearing

Hi guys. I'm back with another card.

I love trying different techniques when it comes to my cards. One technique I don't use that often (but always love the effect when I do) is paper tearing. It gives the paper edge a bit of a different look...and I discovered that inking up the torn edge makes it stand out even more! Love it!

So here's the card.

I had some amazing textured red paper in my stash that I've been wanting to use. I tore about 1/3 of a corner off...and then inked along the edge to make it pop even more. Stuck that onto some white cardstock that I had embossed with my "Swiss Dots" folder. Finally I added the image...with dimensional foam. And to make it all come together, I added some red ribbon and some black bling from my stash. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Be sure to leave a comment and I'll come visit your blog. :) I always love to hear what you think of my cards. Feedback is always appreciated. :)
