I created a water color piece for another card and decided to use some of that for a focal point on my tag.

Watercolor piece 2

I used my Koi Watercolors to create this piece.  I spritz some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine (which is on sale at Michael’s for $5.99 (in the store)). I love the gold shimmer.

Now take a look at my tag:

ValentineDon’t you just love that heart!!  I love how that watercolor piece turned out. I punch a bunch of hearts from that watercolor piece.

Take a closer look at my tag:

Heart close up

I added some gold shine to that watercolor piece.  I love how it turned out.  So do you want to know how I create this tag?

Well here you go:

I die cut my tag using Reverse Confetti Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts out of Crate Paper “Kiss Kiss” patterned paper.

I used Crate Paper Kiss Kiss Rub Ons to add the circle hearts to the center and the sentiment at the bottom of my tag.

I used Stampin’ Up! Sweetheart Punch and punch a heart out of my watercolor piece that I created.

I adhered the heart to the center of that circle.

I added Rose DoubleClick Skittles from the Sweet Love Release to the bottom of my tag.

I added Ruby True Hemp to the tag.

So what do you think?  Let me know, I would love to hear from you.

We Make Quite The Pear!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with DoubleClick Skittles Design Team for the last time.  This design team has a soft spot in my heart because this was my very first design team.

I remember when I received the email from Carri, I was totally blown away.  As a newbie to the design team world, it felt great to know that someone liked my creations.

I thank Carri for giving me a chance to work with her and my fabulous design team members.

With that said, my last challenge theme is Use Button, Brad or Bow!

Take a look at my card:

We Are Quite the Pair

Check out all of the layers on this card!!  I love it.

I also love my pears!  I water-colored them.  My skittles look great in those four corners.

Creating this card was easy.  Here’s how:

1. I cut my Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf cardstock to an A2 size (4.25 x 5.50) scored at 4.25.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangular Die 2 and 3 from the outside to cut my Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolate cardstock and Khaki cardstock, respectively.

3. I used Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Embossing Folder to emboss my khaki cardstock.

4. I layered the khaki on top of the dark chocolate and then I added Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine and tied a bow.

5. Then I attached the whole piece on top of the green leaf cardstock.

6. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square Die 3 and4 from the inside out to cut my dark chocolate cardstock and Simon Says Stamp 120lb White cardstock.

7. I stamped the pears from Simon Says Stamp Quite the Pear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

8. I used my Koi watercolors and colored my pears.

9. I attached the white cardstock onto the dark chocolate cardstock.

10. I attached that whole piece to the front of my card.

11.  I cut out another stitched rectangular piece from the white cardstock.  I stamped my sentiment using Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip Ink.

12. I added Meadow Skittles to all for corners of my dark chocolate cardstock.

I love how this card turned out.  Now its your turn to create something!!  I want to see all of you over at DoubleClick Connection for my last challenge.

Red Happy Birthday…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with DoubleClick Skittles Challenge!

This months theme is Birthday!  I’m happy about this because you can’t have enough birthday cards on hand.

I choose to use a couple of dies and embossing paste to create my card for today.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Birthday balloons

I saw a card created by Laura Bassen and I fell in love with the design.  I was so excited to see her use the new Simon Says Stamps Stitched Rectangles die set.  I order mines and it came just in time to create this card.

To create this card:

1. I started with a piece of Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut it to an A2 size card.

2. Then I used Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil and Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste to create the dots in the center of the cardstock.

3. I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock to add to the top of my card base.

4.  I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to cut out a window in the card panel.

5. I cut two balloons using Simon Says Stamp Balloons Craft Die to cut two balloons.  I add Stampin Up! Whisper White Barkers Twine.  I adhered the balloons with foam adhesive. I added foam adhesive to the back of the card panel and centered it onto the card base.

6. I stamped my sentiment using Simon Says Stamp More Sketchy Banner Greetings.  I cut the tail off and adhered the banner to the right side of the card.

7. I added Rudolph Red Skittle to the banner.  Then I added Clear Wink of Stella to my balloons.

Finished.  Very easy to recreate.

What do you think? Let me know.  Now its your turn to join us and play along with our challenge this month. I hope to see you there!!

November is the time of the year where we give extra thanks to those that we love and those that we’ve met along the way.

CAS Merry Christmas…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the DoubleClick Skittles 8th Challenge.  The theme is Polka Dot or Circles!!  How fun is that?

I decided to create a nice clean and simple card for this challenge.  When I thought about circles I wanted to have more then one.

Take a look:

Merry Christmas

How many circles have you counted on this card.  Amazing right!!  There are 3 circles in this card. Plus the polka dot background!!!

The big circle, the smaller circle and the Ginch Green Skittles are on this card.

To create this card:

1. My card base is 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50.  My Lawn Fawn Snow Day patten paper which is from the Simon Says Stamp 2014 November Card Kit  was cut to 4.25 x 5.50 and adhered to the inside of the card.

2. I cut the circles out with Stampin’ Up! Circles Framelits.  I used the third and fifth dies.  I cut out the card stock and the acetate.

3. I cut out two of the smaller circles and I also cut out the edged of the bigger circle to cover up the adhesive on acetate in the back.

4. I adhered the acetate down with Tombow Multi-Liquid glue.

5. I adhered the smaller circles down with Stampin’ Up! Fuse Fast adhesive.

6. I cut a 3/4 inch banner, rounded the corner, flagged the end and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Be Joyful stamp set which is included in there 2014 November Card Kit.

7. I add one Ginch Green Skittles to keep my card nice, clean and simple.  That green skittle gives the card a really nice pop of color on the front of the card.

So what do you think?  Now its your turn!  Please head on over to DoubleClick Connections to play along with us.
