Dies with Kendra

Happy Wednesday Stamping Friends!

Kendra here today to share a card with you for our new challenge that started yesterday....
DIES!!

Who doesn't love dies?!?!
I know I love them!

SweetStamps.com offers some really beautiful exclusive dies, which can be found here.

With this week's challenge in mind, here is the card I created:
Yellow is my favorite color, although I don't use it much when crafting, so I decided to create a YELLOW card today!

One the polka dot paper I stamped a few images from the Chalkboard Flowers set!

I used the Flutterby #1 SweetCuts Die for my card, here's a close-up:
The "happy birthday" sentiment is part of the Simple Greetings set!

So fun!

Be sure to link-up your creation, we would love to see what you create!

Have a lovely day!

Remy with Dog

Isn't he the sweetest little boy?
Nothing cuter than a boy with his dog.
And...Nothing more fun than a 
Favorite Embellishment challenge right?!
I love embellishments and honestly...cannot pick just one.
I do.... however.... almost every single time...add pearls or some sort of "bling"
I chose black pearls and also used Piccolo 3D enamel gel for the Lemon Butter pearls
on this card.
I also love to distress edges with inks and now I find myself favoriting
stencils like the one I used on this project.

Enough of my favorites...now show us yours!
You still have until Monday evening to share your projects.
You can find the post that includes the link by sculling down
or just click HERE

Happy Sunday!

Innocent Beauty... A Layout

Hello!  Happy Friday!!!  Today I am here sharing my take on our weekly challenge: Favorite Embellishments... and this time I've created something completely different to share... a layout! yay!  And on my layout I have used lots of yummy Picccolo Accents and embossing powders, check it out:




Supplies Used:




I had an absolute fun time creating this layout and playing with all of these accents!  Not to mention how beautiful they look after they are layered with various embossing powders.  I hope this has inspired you, and given you some new ideas on how to use your Piccolo accents and I can't wait to see your projects for our challenge!
Happy Crafting!

Use your favorite embellishment....'Except I cannot pick just one......!  I am a lover of lace, ribbon and sewing on cards. So, I added all three : )
 The Butterscotch cardstock has Butterscotch ink (Spot) through a stencil as a background- it is a subtle backdrop for the floral image. I colored the image with Copics. I used a towel and Copic Colorless Blender '0' to texturize the vase.
 Here is a close-up of the Enamel Embossed chipboard piece- pictures do not do this embossing powder justice!

Here are the products I used from the SweetStamps.com Store:
