Iggy…

It’s another color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! I had fun with these colors. They are both strong and make quite a punch so I used them “lightly”. I started out in an entirely different direction with a Bermuda Bay base and Tangelo Twist mat but I tell you it was too much visually so I went the opposite route and I’m glad that I did.

Hello

I can’t help but think of that Iggy Azalea song “I’m So Fancy… can’t you taste this gold?” song when I look at this card! Ha! I think the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder gives it a nice texture. The sentiment is layered on the Gold Foil Sheet and then popped up with dimensionals to give it some… well… dimension. πŸ˜‰

Hope you’ll come and play this week’s challenge with us! Just click here to play!Β And if I don’t get a chance to post again before this weekend, Happy Mother’s Day! Even to the mamas of fur babies, they count too! ❀

You Made My Day

Have I ever told you about my wonderful neighbors? Well my sweet neighbor Kristina left a bottle of wine on my doorstep on my anniversary so this card is for her.

The stamp set that I used I got for FREE during sale-a-bration! It’s called “Best Day Ever”. I also topped it with a button that I got for free from the “Best Year Ever” accessory pack.Β  I used the new beautiful, shiny, and lovely Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim from the Occasions Catalog. Geez, you would think I like that stuff or something. πŸ˜‰

The texture you’re seeing comes from the Happy Heart Textured Impressions folder. I paired the Bermuda Bay with Melon Mambo and for a little fun threw in the Calypso Coral. The wee little hearts I made from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit that I posted last time. That thing is VERSATILE! And I just happen to love it!

I think this card packs a punch with color, texture, and dimension thanks to my lovely dimensionals adhesive under the banner! I hope you like it and I hope that the lovely Kristina does too! πŸ™‚

Not M.I.A!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am sorry if it seems that I have been M.I.A. I have simply been in a creative funk. You know how it goes. I had a good “talking to” with myself and got into the craft room. I made a couple of gift card holders that I think are pretty nifty. Yes… nifty. I said it. πŸ˜‰

Gift Card 1

They are super easy to make. Seriously, just FIVE steps! Check it out!

Gift Card Holder

Of course decorating is the fun part!

Gift Card 2

I made some during Christmas time the same way, just a different look. And I love the envelope that I made using the Punch Board! I went over the “S” with Crystal Effects and it makes it so cool looking with that shine. πŸ™‚

Oh yes! Forgot to mention… I didn’t have any current ribbon to match so I used Hello Honey with the Crushed Curry and I waited in silence to hear the siren from the fashion police. No one came! I am here to tell you that it is safe to use the two colors together.

Not sure why the pictures turned out yellowish but this is Bermuda Bay and it is one of my favorites!

Anywho, that’s all for today folks. I am glad to say that I am not M.I.A. In fact I’ve got a brand new craft desk I’m using. Pictures coming soon! Don’t forget to get your shop on for supplies at my store.
