You're So Cool

This card was created with My Favorite Things Blueprints
13, Die-namics Inside/Outside Stitched Rectangles, Simon says 
Stamp Ice Cream Dream, Heidi Swapp September Skies paper,
 Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock, Distress Inks and
 Bazzil Cardstock.

I stamped the images with versafine onyx black ink and then
watercoloured with distress inks.  I then stamped the sentiment
 and die cut the panel.  I created a top folding card base and
 added a panel of die cut paper before adhereing the 
watercoloured layer with foam tape.  The final step was to coat
 each of the images with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.

On the inside I stamped a further sentiment and 2 smaller ice
lolly images.

Sparkle Shaker Card

I created this card with Die-namics InstaFrame, My Favorite
Things Blueprints 21 and Blueprints 5, Penny Black Sprinkles
and Smiles, Echo Park Sweet Girl paper, Bazzill cardstock and
clear beads.

I die cut the elements first and then stamped the sentiment
 before creating the shaker.  I then assembled the card front and
 adhered it to a top folding card base.

I added a further Penny Black sentiment to the inside of the card.

Sending You Smiles

This card was created with My Favorite Things 21, Simon
Says Stamp Sending and Wishing stamps and dies, Avery
Elle papers, Doodlebug enamel dots, silver glitter card and
Bazzill cardstock.

I followed a sketch for this card, I can't find the sketch now
but I will amend this post and give credit when I do.

I die cut all the elements and then simpy adhered them directly
to a top folding card base.  I used a variety of adhesive to
give dimension and then finished with the enamel dots.

The inside of the card was finished with a further sentiment and
several die cuts.

Watercolour Stripe Birthday Card

This card was created using Distress Inks, Simon Says Stamp
Wide Stripes Background Stamp, My Favorite Things
Blueprints 21, MFT Die-namics Brushstroke Birthday
Greetings, Doodlebug Enamel Dots and Bazzill cardstock.

I began by selecting several shades of blue distress inks with
which to paint the background stamp.  Whilst this was drying I
die cut the words.  I used the largest die from Blueprints 21 to
cut the background piece and then layered the word die cuts
onto it.  I finished by adhering this layer to a top folding card
 base before adding 3 enamel dots.

I finished the inside of the card with a white die cut layer onto
which I stamped a further sentiment in navy ink.

Distress Ink Background with My Favorite Things

I created this card using Distress Inks, My Favorite Things
Count The Stars stamps, Die-namics Count The Stars and
Stars & Wishes, Simon Says Stamp Falling Stars Stencil,
embossing paste and Bazzill cardstock.

The background of this card was inspired by the home screen 
on my mobile phone.  I used similar distress inks and blended
them onto white card.  I then stencilled embossing paste over this.

I stamped both parts of the sentiment onto black card and cut a 
flag end on each.  I die cut the word in vellum and silver
glitter cardstock then finally adhered all the elements onto a
top folding card base.

I heat embossed another sentiment in white on the inside.

An MFT Blueprints 22 Thank You Card

This is the first card I have made in several weeks due to a 
relapse in my health issues.  I am slowly getting back into 
crafting again as I recover.

I created this card using My Favorite Things Blueprints 22,
Cas-ual Fridays Bold Wishes, Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine 
pattern paper and Bazzill cardstock.

I began by die cutting all of the elements and then adhered them
following a Blueprints 22 sketch.  I then stamped the 
sentiment and attached the finished card front to a 
top folding card base.

The inside of the card was finished with a further sentiment 
and a few extra die cuts.
