One phenomenal bundle, 2 gorgeous projects.

Welcome to THE GLITTER QUEENS FIRST FRIDAYS BLOG HOP! This phenomenal group of Stampin Up! demonstrators have come up with a theme for this month & it is to show YOU just how amazing & versatile one bundle can be!! The bundle I’ve chosen to use is the stamp set COLORFUL SEASONS along with the SEASONAL LAYERS thinlits. 20170705_092319With this bundle, you can really let your creative juices flow!!

Two different cards, one amazing bundle! Just look at these beautiful cards!! I’m so pleased with how these cards came out.

The first card is using cooper foil paper to highlight & create a two dimensional leaf.

Do you see the stitching around the little white square?  That added piece of texture gives this card a little added flair without distracting from the focal point…the COPPER LEAF.

Copper foil paper & cooper thread give an amazing elegance to these cards. And ribbon! What card isn’t complete with out an amazing embellishment?!? Ribbon is like  mascara…the look isn’t complete with out your mascara.

The second card is all about the Cherry Blossom.

I created a water color wash using ink refills and the AQUAPAINTER for the background on the cherry blossom card.

Having the GLOSSY WHITE paper back really made this technique fun & easy!!

I gave these cards some added bling with rhinestones on one & pearls on the other.  These cards had the ‘lipstick’ for your outfit.

First Friday blog hop-Easter

Happy Friday and welcome to the first edition of the Glitter Queens Blog Hop. Myself and a few of my fellow demonstrators have came together and decided to do a Blog hop on the first Friday of each month and today is the first edition…as you can see the theme for this hop is EASTER!

20170406_094853_wm

I just love Springtime and Easter everything is cute and fluffy and chocolatey!! Cute is exactly the description I would give to this card. The greeting “You’re egg-stra special” just called for an egg-shaped card…I just couldn’t resist the play on words.

I use the BASKET BUNCH stamp set and BASKET BUILDER framelits dies that coordinate so beautifully together. And by the way if you buy these as a bundle you’ll save 10%!  As you can see there is everything from flowers to Easter eggs to peeps, yes little bunny peeps, that you can stamp and cut out for any number of cute cards. These framelits make it so easy to be creative!

I absolutely love that mini chocolate bunny! Now if only the calories on the real one were is tiny as this one.
