My Farewell Post to TLC Designs

Hello Friends,

Today I am stopping by to share an uplifting snow scene that will brighten your day. A sweet little fairy playing with the cutest little bunny on a cold winters day. Is it getting chilly weather where you are at? Here in the south the leaves are falling and soon winter will be upon us. Lets take a look at today's card and dream a little.

As if it is a scene from a snow globe, imagine the snow falling as these little friends are playing together with their snowballs. All dressed up in the warm winter clothes, boy must they be having fun.

Check out their stylish outfits too all glittered up and fashionable. Aren't they adorable?

All of the supplies in today's project are from TLC Designs, who I have been designing for for quite some time. Today is my last post as a team member, but I have been honored to be friends with the owner, Tammy Louise Cunliffe for many many years and look up to her as a mentor in this business. I look forward to following her business as it continues to grow and we will remain friends as we move forward in this journey we call life. Thanksgiving day is a perfect day to say Thank you Tammy for being gracious with me over the past year as I have dealt with many personal things and for always being there. 

Last but not least the products I have used for this project are as follows. The stamp set is from the newest release and is titled "Frosty Fairies Set" and I have used that in conjunction with the "Snow Buddies Set" These are both Digital Image sets and I have combined them to create this adorable scene. I have colored my images with Copic markers and have used the beautiful new papers called "Snowy Skies" which are cut out using the "Rosie Sentiment" die set seen in the photo below.

Amoungst the Stars!!!

H Friends,

Today I would love to share one of my favorite cards I think I have made lately with TLC Designs products. This is the Gift of Joy and I am sharing her the only way I know how. The moment I saw this stamp I knew exactly what my plan was going to be. I knew her size was perfect and I could just envision her flying amongst the twinkling stars for all of you to see.

Isn't she magical? To make one of your own you simply need to get a few items from the TLC designs store. You will need the following items...

TLC Designs ~ Angel of Love

Hello and welcome!

Today I am back to share with you my newest creation. This is one of the three newest released angel stamps featured in the store over at TLC Designs. These medium sized characters color up beautifully and are perfectly sized to fit so many of your layering dies perfect for easy holiday card making. Lets take a look at my first card design with the Gift of Love...

This card is A2 in size which is perfect for mailing. I am featuring the Snow Family Fun Digital Paper Pack in my project along with the Oval Lily Frame Die Set to create a focal point for my stamp. The Gift of Love stamp is colored in Copic markers and is surrounded by die cut hearts from the Loving Petals Square Die Set.

The little hearts were so much fun I kept on cutting the scrap paper I was using so I decided to save them for another project. Aren't they adorable??? I think it was a perfect embellishment to complete the Gift of Love project.

Heartfelt Creations ~ Rustic Sunflower Collection in Vellum Pastels

 Hi Friends,

I am excited for today's post. I have worked on this card a little bit at a time over the past couple of weeks as I have been busy with other obligations. Now it is finally ready to share. I have used the Rustic Sunflower collection along with the Centerpiece die collection newly released by Heartfelt Creations. Lets take a look...

 

I really had a lot of fun with this card. From thinking outside the box when creating these floral using the Rustic Sunflowers, to designing using the new hexagon shaped Centerpiece Dies for the very first time. Every moment was enjoyable. 

 

 

For my flowers I stamped my sunflowers using Versa color white ink onto vellum card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Using a sponge I colored the vellum on the reverse sides of the flowers and let dry. I then die cut and hand shaped using my shaping kit. Using dries clear glue and a sponge I added glue to each petal and sprinkled Crystal Clear glitter to achieve a very sparkly effect. For each flower I glued 3 varied sizes from largest to smallest then attached the flat back pearls in the centers.
