Top Dog Dies: More Feathers

Hello everyone!!  Its Wednesday again and I’m here with Top Dog Dies!!

I have another card to share with you using their Feathers Die Set. I just love these feathers.  They are so cute and you can create so many thing with them.

Take a look at my card:

Perfect Day

Take a look at all of that detail on those white feathers.  Simply perfect!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolate Cardstock to 8 x 4, scored at 4.

2. I die cut Top Dog Dies Feathers Die Set out of Neenah Solar White Cardstock.

3. I taped the feathers in place using a basic adhesive.

4. I then used Stampin ‘ UP! Early Espresso and created a bow around the base of the feathers.

5. I stamp the sentiment from Waffle Flower Craft In Everyway Stamp Set with Versamark Ink.

6. I sprinkled Ranger White Embossing Powder over the stamped sentiment and then heat set it.

7. I used my We R Memories Corner Chomper to round the left top corner.

Nothing to it!!  You can recreate this card with ease!!

So what do you think?  Let me know below.

No Stamping: Joy

Second Post of the Day

The a2z Scrapbooking Blog post is here

Hello everyone!  I’m here today playing along with a couple blog challenges.  I hardly get to play at times so when I do, I get super excited.

Take a look at my card:

Joy with clothespin

I just love how my card turned out.  I saw the fabulous Laura Bassen create a card like this and I knew I had to give it a try. I love the simplicity in the design.  So I gather all of my supplies and pulled this card off.

Creating this card was easy because everything was die cut!

I love how the pop of red from Lawn Fawn’s Joy die stand out on Papertrey Ink’s Journal Card 5 Die and matches the hint of red on the pattern paper.

I used Technique Tuesday’s Story Card Die to cut Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day patten paper.

I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins.

I tied Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine on the Stampin’ Up! clothespin.

Easy and no stamping.

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

Giving Thanks

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with the Less is More Week 179 Challenge.  I haven’t played with them in awhile so I decided to join them with their Earth Tone Color Challenge.

So, you guessed it, it’s the tenth hour and I have to hurry to submit my card.  So, no long talking today.

Take a look at my card:

Giving Thanks for you

Giving Thanks for you close up

I just received my new order from Simon Says Stamp Kelly Purkey’s sale.  I ordered the feathers die and thought it would work well with this challenge.

I die cut the four feathers from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods pattern paper.

Then I attached them to each other using a Stampin’ Up! glue dots.

Then I added Stampin’ Up! linen thread to a retired Stampin’ Up! naturals button, tied a bow and adhered it to the top of my feathers.

I stamped my sentiment giving thanks from Simon Says Stamp Giving Thanks Stamp Set with Colorbox Chestnut Roan chalk inkpad.

Nice, clean and simple card with a lot of white space.

What do you think?

Oh Happy Day

Hello everyone! I haven’t posted in the last couple of days because my camera card refused to work.  What nerve!!  We spend all of this money on these cards and they want to act funny.  Luck for me I do not reuse cards.  Once a card is full I buy another, so I have plenty on hand.  Unlucky for me I had to go through one of them and delete some photos so I can take these photos.  Yes, Oh Happy Day for me.  LOL.

Ok, on to why I’m here today.

I’m here today playing with the Muse Challenge #74.  The Muse for this week is Jennifer Wills!

Check out her card:

IMG_7562.1

I have to say, when I saw this card I was a bit intimidated.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, what I can do or what I should do.  My brain was on frozen mode.  Then I thought I want to keep my card clean and simple.  Then I thought maybe I will die cut, but I knew everyone else would, so I didn’t want to do that.

I decided that I would only die cut my center piece and then add embellishments to give the card dimension.

Take a look:

Oh Happy Day side

I die cut my square then added pattern paper.

I rounded the corner, stamped my sentiment, added my twine and button.

Clean and Simple to the max.

By the way, I have been playing with my camera, trying to get brighter pictures that are sharp and crisp.  What do you think?  Any suggestions.

I used my:

Canon 40D

Shooting Mode: AV (Aperture Value)

50mm lens f/1.4

Aperture: 1.4

Shutter speed: 1/80

Exposure Compensation: +1

White Balance: Daylight (I will try Auto next time to see what results I get)

Please let me know what you think.
