For my first card I combined the new Sugar Rush stamp set with previously released The Big, the Bold and the Extras to create a beautiful wedding card.  Check it out!
I layered & layered & layered a little bit more...and then added some watercolor.  This style of card is my bread & butter...just pulling together item after item until it all just fits.

Creation Instructions:
  1. Make A2 card from cashmere cardstock.
  2. Trim a block of mint striped paper & adhere to the front.
  3. Layer a gold doily to the top of it.
  4. Cut strips of pink striped paper & gold dotted vellum, then adhere at slight angles to the card front.
  5. Trim a block of art paper, then stamp & heat emboss the cake stand using gold glitter embossing powder.
  6. Stamp & heart emboss the cake to the top of the cake stand using white embossing powder.
  7. Watercolor the cake, then set aside to dry.
  8. In the mean time, stamp the banner & sentiment to white cardstock.
  9. Layer the dry watercolor block to the card front with a knot of gold thread & a strip of mint lace.
  10. Adhere the banner to the bottom of the watercolor block with foam dots.
  11. Embellish the card with pearls to finish. 



For my next card, I've used the Sparkle stamp set along with some bokeh patterned vellum & a little watercolor splatter.  This card ALSO makes my heart go pitter patter a little bit. :)
Being a photographer, all of the amazing bokeh printed papers just speak to my heart...I purchase them everytime I see them.  And then I hoard them.  Lol!  I've decided I've GOT to use them on some projects, and not just tuck them away in my Scrapbox, petting them occasionally when I take them out.  {#kiddingnotkidding}

Creation Instruction:
  1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
  2. Trim two vellum blocks & layer them together.
  3. Splatter the vellum block with black watercolor & let dry.
  4. Stamp & heat emboss the sparkling circles to the front using gold glitter embossing powder,
  5. Stitch two intersecting lines through the embossed sparkling circles, then adhere the vellum blocks to the card front.
  6. Stamp the sentiment to a white cardstock strip, then trim in an arrow shape.
  7. Layer the sentiment arrow to the card front with a knot of gold thread.
  8. Embellish with two pearl & jewel flourishes to finish.

My Favorite Things Guest Design Post

Hey there, blog friends!  It's a busy week on my blog!!  I was asked earlier in the month to do a couple of guest design spots on the My Favorite Things blog, and my first blog post is up tonight!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, but I think it is important to give love notes to your special someone all throughout the year!  So for my card today I created a love card without a Valentine's Day theme to it.  I've paired a Webster's Pages 4x6 card with some MFT stamps to create this sweet card!
One of my favorite things to do is pair stamping with scrapbooking product in order to further the thought behind the sentiment.

Creation Instructions:
  1. Make A2 card from MFT smooth white cardstock.
  2. Trim a 4x6 card & vellum block slightly smaller, and layer together. 
  3. Stamp the hearts in embossing ink to the paper block using the "All My Love" stamp set.
  4. Cover them in gold glitter embossing powder, then heat set.
  5. Stitch two intersecting lines to the front using gold thread.
  6. Stamp the sentiment to a white cardstock strip using the "Smitten With You" stamp set.
  7. Cut the edges to make the sentiment strip look like an arrow.
  8. Layer the sentiment arrow with a knot of gold thread to the card front.
  9. Embellish it with a gold enamel bow to finish.

For my next card, I went a bit more colorful & cheery!  This fun Thank You card would be perfect for sending out after a birthday party.  I've combined some Carta Bella papers with some MFT stamps & Dienamics to create this one!
I just love the fun colors of this, and the MFT Dienamics made it so easy to put together!!

Creation Instructions:
  1. Make A2 card from aqua cardstock.
  2. Diecut the angled paper block & peekaboo circle from polka dot paper using the MFT "Blueprints 18" Dienamics set.
  3. Diecut the circle border from the aqua cardbase using Blueprints 18.
  4. Adhere the polka dot paper block to the bottom of the card using foam dots.
  5. Diecut a circle from yellow star paper and a star from red striped paper using Blueprints 18 and adhere them inside the peekaboo circle.
  6. Diecut the banner from oatmeal cardstock using Blueprints 18.
  7. Stamp the sentiment to the banner using the "Photo Booth" stamp set.
  8. Adhere the sentiment banner to the lower right corner.
  9. Embellish with twine threaded buttons to finish.

All of the MFT items I used have been linked in the instructions above...so be sure to check them out & pick them up if you so fancy!   Thank you so much to my friends at MFT for giving me this opportunity to guest design!  I appreciate it so much, and look forward to my next guest design post in February!
