Follow your heart

Hello everyone,
Today's Splitcoaststampers challenge was a fun one, as I got to use a lot of my normal tools for today. And a few of my favorites! My favorite is my Big Shots Machine, since I love using die cuts. I also love my Judikins dusters , they are the best. Next I love the purple cow trimmer :) those are a few of my FAV'S.

I used the
PURPLE COW TRIMMER to trim all papers, then the
BIG SHOTS to cut all my die cuts.
SCISSORS to cut my ribbon,
POKEY TOOL to poke the pieces from my die cut,
DUSTER to dust the dress on the CottageCutz Victorian girl,
CLEAR BLOCK to stamp my sentiment,
GLUE GUN to add buttons to the corners
SEWING MACHINE- sewing on my card, love sewing!!!!!
The spellbinders die I used was one I bought at Michaels Craft when they were on sale for 5.00 cannot believe I got 8 sets for 5 each, then I take my mom by there last week and she gets them for a whopping 1.90, cannot believe that!!!! CRAZY I tell ya! wish they would have had more....hehehehe

Ok just had to share that :)
Thank you for looking and have a lovely weekend!

Birthday Wishes/Pop-up Book Card

Hello everyone, here is another Pop-up Book card I made for Splitcoaststampers Technique Lovers Challenge. I have to say, I truly love this new fold, its super fun!!! 

So for my card today, I covered it with Graphic45 design paper, and DCWV for the gingham print. I am loving this design paper stack, and currently working with it for some calendars I'm making for Christmas.
CottageCutz Corners are from the Victorian Release, and I am loving all the CottageCutz dies in this release, Love using these!!!
This card here is for my mom's Birthday coming up in July.
The Lilies are from Heartfelt Creations, I stamped the stamps in Memento black ink, and then colored the center with Copic yellow, and next I airbrushed each lily petal. I spritzed them with clear spritzing bottle from American Crafts, it gives them each a little shimmer. then rolled them at the bottom, and set aside to dry. The ribbon is Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon. And the little ladybug purple button was found in one of my button jars, it works perfect for this card.
Love the inside. If your like me, I hardly ever do the insides until I give the card, and even then its just a white piece of cardstock. I really enjoy when the insides are done. I should be doing more like this. The stamped image is from CTMH,

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,

Pop up Book Card

 Hello everyone,
My card for today was designed for Splitcoaststampers Pop Up Book Challenge, well really the TLC challenge....hehehehe We were to make a card using this technique for today, and it was a super fun one!

 On my card I used American Crafts Bazzill vintage Market Place for the inside and outside. The other blue polka dots is from American Crafts. I used it as well on the inside and outside.

So for the front, I used spellbinders dies, and then CottageCutz Victorian Corners, and Victorian Rose. Love these dies, and love the corners, they are absolutely beautiful for any project!

For the rose I dusted versamagic in Pink Petunia,and then airbrushed using copic RV34. The greenery was done in G99,YG05. I then glued some bling onto my rose. The corners were just cut in white card stock.
The stamped sentiments for outside and inside are from Our Daily Bread Design and is a friendship set I bought back in 2009.

The 2 frames on the front are spellbinders dies and came from a set Marvelous squares, I bought this set for 5.00 at michaels craft store, thanks to a dear friend Shannon, who also picked me up 4 other sets, and then took me to get 4 more sets....LOL

Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I used the Polka Dot Satin.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Victorian Row House

Hello Friends!
My card for today was designed using the DARLING CottageCutz Victorian Row House die. I made this card for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge this week. I love participating in their challenges over there, they are super fun!

I cut my Row House out using cream colored card stock. Then dusted it with distressed ink, and added some pearl strands, pearls, buttons, and flowers to embellish it. Love the way it looks with the embellishments on it. The design paper I used is from DCWV its the Text + Photo stack that I used.
For my ribbons I used Really Reasonable Ribbon, love this Satin! The sentiment tags are from American Crafts Pebbles line, and I just cut them down a bit so they would fit.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,
