Daisy Wreath

Happy Heartfelt Wednesday everyone! My inspiration for you today features Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies stamp and die, from the Peacock Paisley Collection, and my wreath was made using Art Anthology Colorations Spray and a stencil from Hero Arts.

I love daisies, happy, simple flowers that make me smile! The delicate daisies coordinated with my wreath  and made a simple, clean card.  The spray was easy to use with my stencil and clean-up was a breeze! This is a great multi media product and comes in several colors!

Heartfelt Poppy Photo Album

Happy Heartfelt Wednesday everyone! By now you have seen the latest release from Heartfelt, their "Blazing Poppy Collection"! There is no end to what you can create with Heartfelt's collections and this one seems endless.
My inspiration for today is a simple photo album covered with a couple of the beautiful papers from the new collection; I then created a focal point with the poppies!
 My poppies were heat embossed with a copper powder and the centers are copper micro beads. These poppies are easy to color, shape and add to your projects!
 More copper embellishments, a few rhinestone flourishes and my project was done!

Red, White and Blue...

Welcome everyone to Dies R Us twice monthly challenge AND the Cardabilities Sketch Challenge! Both on the same day this month! My first card is for the Dies R Us Flags and/or Banners challenge. For all the details check out the DRU Challenge Blog!
This card uses Memory Box Perfect PatchesPoppystamps General Store Tags and Poppystamps Brevilla Houses dies.  The paper is from Autentique and the sentiment is "homemade" on my computer and then cut out with the tag die! 
I removed one house from each end of the die cut for a more balanced feel! Good luck with our challenge and maybe you will be shopping at Dies R Us with a gift voucher soon!

The next challenge for you is the Cardabilities Sketch Challenge! Here is the sketch we are working with this month.

This sketch is a fun design and should be easy for you to create something special for this challenge. Here is my take on this sketch.
I used Taylored Expressions Tag Stacklets 1 and turned them upside down to create banners! The star border die is also from Taylored Expressions.
My patriotic flowers were cut from red, white and blue paper using Elizabeth Craft Bunch of Flowers 1 . The background panel was cut using Die-Namics Blueprint 13 and then embossed with a star embossing folder from Darice. Again, my sentiment is homemade, sometimes I just can't find the stamp I want on my projects. Check out all the information on the Cardabilities blog, create a fun design and post it to the blog...it's that simple! Good Luck!

Don't forget to stop by Dies R Us for a GREAT selection of dies!
