Hampstead Wreath
by Sue McRae

I'm here with my second post for the Blog Blitz. I hope the design team has been inspiring you with all the new release dies!

P1300411c

Today I'm showcasing the Hampstead Oval Frame Die. Love this leafy wreath with stitched detail that can be used horizontally or vertically.

First, I die cut all my inked elements from water colour paper and used Distress Inks to colour them and I spritzed everything with Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer.

P1300439c

I die cut the wreath twice from vellum and adhered each  layer behind the water coloured wreath to add more layers and interest.

I also added a few Devyn Butteflies (also a new release) and the sentiment to finish off the card.

P1300397c

Wreaths are so versatile to have in your stash. They are great for a lot of occasions and can be decorated with flowers, hearts, nuts, fruits and more or left clean and simple.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Please leave a comment for your chance to win the Hampstead Oval Frame and make sure to come back twice a day until the end of the Blog Blitz on January 16th.

Nautical Birthday
by Lezlye Lauterbach

So  Excited for the blog blitz! I hope you all are ready too! Lots of inspiration coming your way these next couple of weeks. I chose a nautical theme for my card. My brother has a Birthday at the end of the week so the timing is perfect!

Poppylighthouse

 

I used the light house die, the anchor from the new release. I hand cut the cliff for the lighthouse as well as the yellow for the light  and sentiment.

Vellum was used for the waves. It's hard to see in the photo but wink of stella was added to the happy birthday.

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello, Marybeth here today with a card for the  Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Amy Tsuruta from Tsuruta Designs put together another fun coffee hop. 

 

DSC_0172coffee

I used the Mesh Stencil for the background  on this card. So quick and easy to make your own background  

IMG_6292
 

I layered washi tape on a piece of card stock then cut my die out. I was going to add other pieces back in the teacups, but I loved seeing more of the mesh background  .

DSC_0173coffee

The light shimmer background was something I watercolored  months ago. I lightly went over the Mesh stencil with some markers.

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Stacked-Teapots-CU2

11001567_10206247727502690_374808119681303202_o

Amy Tsuruta from Tsuruta Designs organized another amazing blog hop for all you Coffee Lovers out there!  She's asking folks to play along making projects inspired by their favorite drinks.  It doesn't have to be coffee!  My personal favorite is iced tea - but on a cold winter day I won't complain if you serve it to me steaming hot!  
Stacked-Teapots-CU1
Amy wants us all to "think spring" so I made my design in soft pastels!  I started with a white card stock base.  I topped that with a slightly smaller light blue cardstock panel.  Next I trimmed two panels - mint and pink, taped them together on the reverse side,  and die cut the stacked teapot die.  
Stacked-Teapots-CU4
I  inlayed all the colored pieces inside the teapots.  After deciding it looked too "flat" I cut the teapot die 4 more times from white card stock and adhered them one on top of the other to add some dimension.  I used a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen to get those little small edges glued down flat. 
Stacked-Teapots-CU3
The "hello sentiment is cut from the Hello Word Balloon Die.   All that was left was the frosting on the cake - a sprinkle of sequins and a bit of gold washi. 
Stacked-Teapots-SV
Stacked-Teapots-FV
OK now for the part you've been waiting for.  Poppystamps is offering two of these Stacked Teapot dies as prizes.   Amy will be awarding one winner from all the Coffee Lovers Hop Participants, and Poppystamps will be awarding the second winner from this blog.  Just leave a comment by March 6 and we'll post the winner on March 8!
