I'm so excited to share a few of my creations for Anna's lastest HSN shows!!! First up are a couple that I did with the beautiful Card Front dies! I absolutely LOVE these dies This first layout is one of my favorite projects ever!!!

This second layout I thought turned out super sweet! I love the softness of the die cuts with the sweet photo!!!

Next up is a couple with the Letterpress folders! These are so much fun! I love the little pineapples!!!!

 This one with the anchors was just a little different using the two different colors and making a grid.

The flamingos were so much fun to color! I used watercolor markers for this!!!

 And last, the  Congratulatory and Wishful Thinking word dies! The Congratulatory is the second installment of the autoship of the Wishful Thinking. You can mix and match any of the words!

Also done with the word dies!

One Stamp, Three Ways

So, while I was waiting for our latest Anna Griffin show on HSN, which is TODAY I have been creating a little bit just for fun! Between assignments and bored! I decided to play with a stamp that I got a while back on HSN from Hot Off the Press.  I did 3 cards with different techniques.

This first one was done using white embossing powder on vellum. I then inked the back of each bloom and added a gem. I used an Anna Griffin sentiment and embossing folder. I also used the April assortment of ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon club.

For this one I just used ink on white cardstock and cut them out. Again, added a center.

On this last one I used colored embossing powder on vellum! A total different look! Again, used an embossing folder for a pretty bit of dimension! Added gemstone centers here too!

Love this little stamp, and these were all very quick to complete! I love how an embossing folder on white cardstock gives such a pretty touch to an otherwise simple card!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate you visiting me!!!!

Playing with my Stash

I'm in between assignments for Anna Griffin so I decided to pull out some old stamps and play around. I made 2 cards with some old Close To My Heart floral stamps. One is so old it's not even acrylic, it's one of the old rubber ones!!! But I had fun just playing around!

The first one was done with the old Hydrangea stamp set. I used Anna Griffin and CTMH inks. I added a little liquid pearl in the centers of each bloom and raised one with foam dots for dimension.

This one was done with an acrylic set, the Sunflower set. I added a little bit of stickles in the centers of these blooms.

These were exceptionally easy and quick to do, and a lot of fun. I may do some different colors of the same cards!!! Just change the sentiments!! Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you like the cards!
