Surprise!

I created this card using:





By the way this paper pad and enamel shapes are brand new and so totally fun.
All of the patterns of paper in this paper pad are so awesome.

I went a little crazy with this fun My Favorite Things: Chevron Fringe Die-namics. There is so many ways you can use this die and I know it is pretty popular right now. I let that be the party on this card. I paper pieced the image and just stamped the sentiment on the top,  Simple and so fun.

Hello

Hello, Diane here, and I'm so glad you stopped by!  I'm sharing a pretty, tropical card today using the Hero Arts Paper Layering Pineapple Die and Avery Elle Big Greetings.

  




To make the background of my card I used some Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Tumbled Glass), to do some ink blending on white card stock.  When I was finished I added some drops of water and some ink splatters to it.  I trimmed the panel and attached it to a white card base along with a strip of gold glitter tape.  To make the pineapple I used the Hero Arts Paper Layering Pineapple Die.  I cut a piece of watercolor paper with the die and then colored it with some Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and a little bit of Brushed Corduroy for the bottom of the pineapple, and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the top).  I cut out the pineapple, trimming it as close as possible because I didn't want a border around it, I was going for a more realistic look.  I used some dimensional foam tape to place the pineapple on top of some white string.  I stamped the word "hello", from Avery Elle Big Greetings, in black and fussy cut it.  I popped it up on the card, and then added a few gold sequins to finish.

I hope you enjoy my card, thanks for visiting!

I love this new Neat & Tangled: Pentagon Stencil and I wanted to do something different so I used it to emboss with Hero Arts: Gold Embossing Powder. Paired up with The Greeting Farm: Maisea Stamp Set it was so fun to make. I also added some fun Amy Tangerine: Better Together designer paper just so I had a bit more color in my card. I always have to add a little dimension with American Crafts Sticky Thumb Dimensional Adhesive Foam I just can't help myself.

Stand Tall Darling

Hello!  Diane here with a card featuring the lovely Hero Arts Color Layering Flamingo and Elle's Studio: Sunny Days 6x6 Paper Stack!




The layout of this card was greatly influenced by the talented Alice Wertz!  I've been a big fan of Alice's work for years now.  Her coloring skills are incredible, but she's also a master at mixing and matching patterned papers in creative ways I would never think of myself.  Mine never look quiiiite as good as hers, but I'm working at it! 


To make this card I stamped the flamingo using several shades of pink ink, the water with teal ink, and the grass with green ink.  I used a curved, scalloped die to cut the white card stock (I like how the curve follows the curve of the flamingo's body!)  I added several pieces of the Sunny Days patterned paper on the right side of the card.  I wanted to add a bit more dimension to my card so I stamped the grass several more times on white card stock, fussy cut it, and added it to the card.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added a few clear sequins to finish the card.  I just love the beautiful, graceful flamingo combined with the playful patterns of the paper, don't you?
