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. 

All the products used an be found at

Thanks for stopping by.

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!

You're Fintastic...

Here's to a new week of inspiration.
Annette Allen here with you today.

Today I am getting crafty with...

All of the supplies used can be found at

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. 

Thanks for stopping by.
