Paradise


Hi there!  I don't know if you heard or not, but Taylored Expressions has announced its Retirement Sale!  Yep. . .lots of my favorite TE products are not being continued!  :(    The Ride the Wave Border Die is one of those products for me.  I just loved it because it was a different kind of "wave".. .it could act like a flourish on a card!

For this card, I combined it with a piece of the Beach Border Die and a sentiment from A Day in Paradise.  The papers are from the Summer Nights 6x6 Paper Pack.

The Retirement Sale is on while supplies last.  The stamps and dies are up to 70% off!!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!!

VLV Everyone Deserves a Chance to Fly


Hi there!  I have a card to share with you today using this week's Viva la Verve Sketch!!  For my card, I used the Happy Place stamp set along with the Flourished Tag Die Set.  I chose some happy papers from the Splendid Sunshine Collection from Echo Park.

I stamped and heat embossed the butterfly in white and then sponged Distress inks on it to give it that vibrant color.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white as well.  Both tags were die cut using the Flourished Tag Die Set.  Come play along with this week's sketch!!  It's a great starting point for a card!!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!!



    

Summer Tags


Hi there!  Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  I have a couple tags to share today that were inspired by this adorable tag on Pinterest by Courtney Kelley!  I LOVED how Courtney used a cutting plate to cover the tag.  I thought it gave a nice texture!

I decided to use the Flip Flop Garland to create tags.  I used fun colors of cardstock and a couple of other fun dies!  The pink tag uses the Circles Cutting Plate and the orange tag uses the Loop-de-Loo Cutting Plate.  The flowers on the flip flop tags were created using the Bloomers 1 Die.  The sentiments were created using the Pockets & Pages June Script and Pockets & Pages July Script.

These would make fun tags for summer birthday gifts or any kind of summer party, really!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!

Verve June 2015 Spotlight Hops - Day 5


DAY 5 - Friday, 6/19/15
It's release day at Verve and we're celebrating with Day 5 of our June 2015 Spotlight Hops!  Have you enjoyed the spotlights we've been sharing this week? Well, the wait is over and everything previewed this week is available in the Verve online store now!

Today's spotlight is shining on The Sparkly Dreams set illustrated by Julee Tilman, as well as the Butterfly Dreams Die Set and the Flourished Tag Die Set.   If you've come from Marisa's Blog, then you're in the right place!  My card today uses the Sparkly Dream set.  I have always loved the Serenity Prayer, so that was my first choice as far as sentiments to use from this set!  :)    I stamped and then trimmed around the sentiment.  The butterfly was stamped and colored with Copic markers.  As a finishing touch, I used some ribbon from the Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection.  

Next on today's hop is Maureen!!  Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY SHOPPING!!
