Happy Monday!

I couldn't choose just one card to share with you today...so I chose four. Apparently I was in a rainbow mood while creating these!

Celebrate

 

Happy Friday!

Welcome to the easiest card in the world to make. The stamp is from Taylored Expressions and stamps like a dream. I die cut gold card stock using some older dies from MFT Stamps. I added some sequins and that was it!

Sometimes easy is the best! Signing off until Monday!

Let Freedom Ring

 

Happy Thursday!

Here's a little sneak peek at my 4th of July porch decor. Of course, this is just a tiny bit of it...but I wanted to show you this little frame. It contains a stamped image from Taylored Expressions newest release. 

I had the best time coloring it - all those tiny images!

I'll be back tomorrow with another 4th of July project - this time a card.

See you then.

I Seriously Cannot Thank You Enough

Happy Tuesday!

I made the panel on today's card using the  Layered Stars and Stripes Quilt stencil set from A Colorful Life Designs. I used it last week for a 4th of July card, but this set isn't just for patriotic cards. 

I was in a rainbow mood when I made this one and I love how it turned out. The sentiment is retired from Concord and 9th, but it is still one of my favorites.

Have a fun and creative day and I'll see you again tomorrow.

A Colorful Life Designs Release Day - Happy 4th of July x 2

 

Happy Tuesday!

Today we have the brand new June Release at A Colorful Life Designs. The stencils from this company are top notch and I'm never disappointed when I create with them. 

I used two different stencils to make this card - the Layered Star Lines stencil set and the Layered Stars and Stripes Quilt stencil set. Here is a second project using the same tag stencils. I am working on my 4th of July decor, so this tag fit perfectly with my wooden bead garland.


I would encourage you to take a look at all of the June release because I think you will be happy with what you see.

Have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow.

We Always Have Time for You

Happy Monday!

I decided to get creative with our Slim Line Die Cutting System and make a mini slim card. I just used the partial die cutting technique and as I held my breath...it worked!

I stenciled my focal point using the Blending Stencil Tropical Drinks stencil. I spiced it up by using the Flower stencil to color the glass. And my sentiment is from the Nice Seeing You set. This was a very easy card to put together and could be easily replicated.

Don't forget about our Memorial Day Sale for your 20% discount! Have a wonderful and creative day and I'll see you again in a few hours for a second card.

There's No Shadow You Won't Light Up


Happy Tuesday!

Today I have a card to share with you with a lyric which reminds me how crazy God is about me. I used the Lighthouse stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. I wanted the stenciling to be just one color so the words would show up well. The words mean so much to me, so they are the star of the show.

Be sure to stop by and see all the stencils at A Colorful Life Designs. The selection is terrific and you will always find what you need. Have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow.
