Create a Smile Guest Designer Part II

Hey everyone! Today I have my second post over on the Create a Smile blog as their January Guest Designer. This time I used the cute umbrella image of the stamp set I got to play with:


You'll find all instructions on how to create the card here. And the stamp set called "Bad Day" is available here. Thanks for stopping by!

It's a Guy Thing

I quickly wanted to share a card I will be entering to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "IT'S A GUY THING".


A very simple and clean card. Although my husband would probably say it is not clean enough for a man.


I used Lawn Fawn's float my boat stamps and dies. First, I trimmed a piece of rustic cream cardstock (rustic sounded so manly!) slightly smaller than my cardbase. Then I stamped the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card. I die-cut a pinked square from woodgrain patterned paper and adhered it to the panel. Then I stamped the anchor, die-cut it and tied-on the "marine rope". Finally I adhered the anchor with foam tape.
I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Cure for the Monday Blues and Winnie & Walter

Hi everyone! This month, Winnie & Walter is sponsoring Taheera's Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge. I love today's inspiring photo and had to play!


The colors are so pretty, and that circle inspired me, too. Here comes my take:


Shaker cards…can anyone get enough of them? I die-cut a window using the Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die from a panel of cardstock. Then I softly inked the bottom part and stamped sequins from the Winnie & Walter set Scenery: Big Bang Bling. Onto the background of my card, I applied pink ink to match the circle of the inspiration photo. I filled my shaker window with various sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Fancy Pants. And I added microbeads. Finally I inked a piece of cardstock with yellow ink and die-cut the hello using a The Big, the Bold and the Happy Cutaways die to adhere it over the acetate of my window. I hope you like it and hope you'll play!
Thanks for visiting!
