Die-ing for Spring Blog hop for Quietfire Design

Hi everyone it's April Fools day today and it's our 3rd day on our fun hop to share 
with you lots of new stamps and our brand new dies from Quietfire Design.

Today you will also be visiting Diana's blog so don't forget to hop over
and see what she has and if you just started today check out the list at the bottom
of my post to see where you should go for more amazing inspiration...

So today i have 2 cards for you to see.  One is my favorite by far of all the cards
i have done.  I adore G45 papers and i ordered this paper especially for this so
i was very pleased with how it came out with the aqua colors and the fairy :)

Quietfire has a brand new stamp called "Raindrops are like Fairy Whispers"
and it went perfect under my fairy that i found on the papers.  I created a 
window type covering from one of the new Becca Feeken Spellbinders
dies that just came out called Swirl Bliss Pocket.  I cut it out of light ivory
paper and then tucked it carefully over the card part that i popped up with
foam dots.  It really makes the design pop like this, I love it!

And of course i had to add some raindrops and fairy dust to it
to make it all shiny and fairy garden like....... I stamped the sentiment
in black and embossed with clear and to make it match with the card more
i used just a touch of ink around the inside with a foam dauber.

And as promised-- here is my card using one of the brand new dies
that were just released.  They work amazing and i created this one so
that it has a pretty shadow behind it and then popped it up with 3D
foam dots.  The papers are from Basic Grey and so is the sticker.

Here is a closeup so that you can see how pretty the calligraphy looks.

Well that is all for me today but be sure and check back tomorrow for another
amazing sneak peak from Sherry and Suzanne!!

Cardabilities sketch #120 is up today

Today there is a brand new sketch up on Cardabilites and i think you are really
going to love the possibilities of this one.  We are partnering with Sami Stamps
digital designs this time so each of us picked a special digi stamp and used it on
our sketches.  Mine is in my favorite shade of pink and i used one
of the brand new Spellbinders dies to start the base for it.

So to start my card i use a piece of Pion paper in a pretty pink
rose pattern.  Then i cut the new Spellbinders Labels 47 in ivory.

On top of that i cut 2 layers of both ivory and Authentique Faith
Collection 6x6 pad to fill the square.  Then i cut 2 pieces of a fancy
Martha Stewart punch and used that as my left side border base.

The flowers that i printed i first colored with chalk in to match and 
then i cut 2 centers from a SB die and added a gem.  I should have printed
them in a dark pink since i forget i have that option when you use digitals
but i will remember next time.  And to finish i stamped Thankyou from 
an amazing stamp set from Stampendous and then I
added a pretty ivory seam binding bow from RRR

Here is the sketch so that you can join us and play along too.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by :)

RRR Bright Spring Colors Challenge is up

Happy Spring to all of you that have tiny flowers popping up where you live!  It's
been a funny weather season for us here in California but my spring bulbs are just
beginning to pop up and I think i will have some beautiful blooms to see soon.

Our challenge over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog this time is bright
spring colors and ribbons so i decided to make up a quick canvas with some
really pretty ribbons and papers that matched by Kaiser Kraft.

Sometimes you can find the perfect papers to create something and this one went
together in a snap just for that reason.  The papers had the words on it and lots of
fun layering already so i started with a black back round and then added bits of torn
and distressed paper to make the layers.  I also added my favorite Versa Mark
 inks from Tsukineko called Sea Breeze and Midnight Black.  They went perfect.

This was my perfect chance to use some of my favorite ribbons from the RRR
May Arts collection in this gorgeous shade of pink melon.  It ties the most
beautiful bows and has the prettiest lines in it.  It's called Textured two tone rose
and actually comes in lots of other colors that you can see here.

All these fun banners came with the sticker sheet so i used them up on the top
and attached some RRR bakers twine on it with lots of loops across it.

And here is a closeup of the stenciled dots and glitter paste that
i used from Deco art and Fab Scraps.  I love to add those fun layers of
texture on my projects to make it more fun!

Thanks so much for stopping over and be sure and join us on the 
challenge this month.  It's going to be lots of fun :)

1st Cardabilites post up for today

It's time again for another new amazing sketch up on the Cardabilites blog
today.  Our new sketch is a fun one and i used lots of my favorite dies
and some fun Bo Bunny papers that i had in my stash.  We have a 
wonderful sponsor for our prize this month from The Stamping Boutique
so be sure and share your card with us on the Cardabilites blog and that
way you have chance to win and get lots of inspiration too!

For my card i used one of the gorgeous fairy stamps that they had and 
copied it a few times on my paper that i printed out so that i could layer 
it to give it more depth.  I colored it with copic markers and used 
diamond stickles to make it sparkle on the wings and on the flower.

Here is a photo of the sketch.  I changed it just a little bit so
that i could make the most of the digital design that i had.

And here is a closeup of the dies that i used for it.  I used different
Spellbinders dies and layered each of them so that i would get pretty
layered patterns with each of the colors.  I love this because it's bright
and filled with lots of pretty springtime colors.  One of my favorite
new dies is called Diamondessence and another one called Interlocking love
that i used for the border in green-- is so versatile and pretty.

And here is another card that i did with the same sketch and lots of
pretty flowers in my stash.  The papers for this are from Pion in Sweden
and i just love them.  I wish they made fabric just like it so that i could
decorate my scrapbook room with it.  I just love the Shabby Chic
look of things.  One of my favorite is called Royal Circle and it's
layered with a Scalloped circle and the Pierced Circles dies.  I really
love this one.  So that's all for today but don't forget to join us and
link up with your favorite design using the sketch to play along.

Have a really wonderful day.... Teresa

RRR Blog Hop for March

Hi Everyone it's the middle of March already and were are geared up here
waiting for the flowers of spring to pop up everywhere with a fun blog
hop for you all.  I decided to create a pretty photo board with this piece of
wood that i got at my local scrapbook store and some flowers.  It's super
quick and easy and you can put any photos on it after the holiday too!

If you just started on the hop be sure and go back to the
RRR blog and start there otherwise you should be coming from

So my projects that i am sharing with the amazing Ribbon Club Assortment 
this month and a few of my favorites are a Spring Photo stand and a pretty
decorative box to put out or give a little something special to someone in.
I found the photo stand at HL and painted it white first then sanded it and put
and then painted it again.  Then i found this pretty printed kraft paper and made
 a pattern and cut it out.  Then i glued it on the front.  Then i added lots of flowers,
greenery and ribbons with a hot glue gun.  I used the turquoise, purple and
 light blue ribbons in the set.  Oh and i tucked in a few WOC leaves to
fill in just a little bit more. It came out nice and bright and now i can add a fun
photo from Easter or something fun to remember and share for spring.

Here is a closeup of the flowers and ribbons that i put in it.

And because i hate storing scraps of paper i had a small chipboard
box so i just cut small squares to fit the sides and top and i also inked
around all the papers with gingerbread chalk in from Tsukineko.

And I used Cream Mesh Ribbon to tie the bow and then added
some Natural Burlap string and Arianna natural crochet lace around the
 top.  And i had some pretty ivory flowers and tiny babies breath that i
tucked in under the flowers to finish it.

So off you go now to Jenn's blog to see what incredible
project she has to share with you this month....

Thank you so much for stopping over and hope that
everyone inspires you to create something fun to celebrate spring!

Believe in Miracles from Quietfire

Happy Wednesday everyone and hope that your week is going
really well so far.  Today i am sharing a quick card by Quietfire
Design stamps.  I love this set because there is always someone
that i can make this card for to let them know how special they are.

For this project i used the Believe in Miracles stamp set that you
can order online from Quietfire Designs.

And i also used the Basic Grey 6x6 Mon Ami paper set and the
stickers that go with it.  I love the colors in this one!  The Spellbinders
border die set is called Curved Borders 2 and it's a good one to get 
if you don't already have it only because there is so much that you can
do with it.  Lots of ways to interchange the dies and i love that.  The ribbon
is from Really Reasonable and comes in lots of yummy colors
if you are in need of something fun to use for your cards.

Sorry this is such a quick post--- its time to be off to work now but
as always there is lots of fun new things to share and the RRR
Blog hop is coming up this friday.

Have a wonderful day,  Teresa
