Adore Aperture Die!

Hi! Have you seen the latest addition to the Crafter's Companion store?! They just added some Die'Sire Aperture dies.  I love these because they make my life so easy.  These dies basically do all the work for me - die cut them and your card is done!

I used the Adore Die for this project.  I simply die cut it out of white cardstock, separated a few of the pieces and then adhered it to a background that had some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink on it.

I added the large heart back on with foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from the Sentimentals Vintage EZ Mount Stamp set.  These dies are so fabulous - there are several different designs and they are all so pretty!

Thanks for stopping by!

Die'Sire Classiques

Hi! Crafter's Companion recently release some new Die'Sire dies and they are fabulous! I inked up some cardstock using Delicata Golden Glitz and then I die cut these lanterns using the new Die'Sire Classiques Chinese Lanterns.

I stamped the sentiment from Vintage Floral Sentimentals: Greetings in Tuxedo Black ink after I added a little bit of watercolor and let it dry.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lawnscaping Challenge # 102: Distress Addicts sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Hello, hello! It's time for another fabulous Lawnscaping Challenge! 

This time, we are going 
Distress CRAZY!

We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn! Those folks just rock and they are sponsoring this challenge with a free stamp set of the winner's choice! 

For my creation, I used Distress Markers, Distress Inks AND I distressed the edges of my card! I really tried to push myself with this one.  I don't normally use doilies or my Distress Markers, so I went all out. And that sentiment? It's on clear acetate, to give the card a little extra zing!

To start, I colored onto the Penelope's Blossoms stamp set with Distress Markers, spritzed them with water and then stamped them onto watercolor paper.  I die cut a few extra elements using the coordinating Lawn Cut and added them onto the main bloom with some foam adhesive.

Then, I added Distress ink to the doily, and tried mixing some different patterened papers.  To finish off the card, I distressed the edges and added the sentiment from Birthday Tags with the banner from Good Fortune. 

This one is a bit different than my normal style.  That's a little 'distressing,' isn't it??!?!!? Just kidding! I hope you'll play along with us!

Stamps and Dies: Lawn Fawn
Markers: Distress Markers (Peeled Paint, Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed)
Ink: Distress Ink (Broken China, Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick), Staz On Jet Black
Patterned Paper: Lawn Fawn (Hello Sunshine)
Acetate: Heat Resistant by Crafter's Companion

Die'Sire Dies: Hearts and Butterflies!

I'd like to share this card I created using my new Die'Sire Classiques Delicate Butterfly! I stamped some background text from Stamp It Australia: Dragonfly Delights in both Peacock Feathers and Barn Door Distress Ink. Then I die cut the butterfly out and the hearts using my Die'Sire Essentials Hearts die.

I added a little spray mist to the background and the hearts before I added the butterfly to the card using my adhesive foam.

Clean and simple, but fun, right?

Thanks for stopping by!
