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.

Frolicking Little Fellow

Welcome Back Friends,

Today I am back with you sharing a childs card featuring a fun paper pieced background along with a frolicking little fellow from the Tiptoe Fairy Dance Stamp Set by TLC Designs.

For the background I simply used up some precious scraps of some of my favorite TLC papers. (Blooming Medley and Watercolor Naturals) and I cut strips and then adhered them to a piece of white card stock precut using the second largest die from the Daisy Frame die set. Then I simply trimmed off the overlapping edges.

The smaller background diecut that the little boy fairy is on is cut from the Scalloped Rectangle Garden die set along with the tree stump. I used a simple scallop punch from my stash to mask the cloudy background and that gave a nicely coordinated backdrop for my fun dancing fairy friend.

Lastly the sentiment is from the "Sweetie the Dragon" Stamp Set.
