Getting Embossing at Flutter By Wednesday

This week we have a fun challenge for you! It's time to do a little embossing (any kind). Remember to include a butterfly, fairy or angel in your NEW creation!

I decided to do a card with hardly any stamping. I was inspired at Michael's in their Valentine section by the paint I saw - that's where my color combo comes from. It's such a bright happy card - perfect to send in February!

I found another card on Pinterest and knew I wanted to try it out for Flutter By Wednesday. You can see the original creation HERE.

I hope you'll join us at FBW - visit the blog for all the details. Thanks for stopping by!

It's Wryn - Wrapping You with My Love!

So Tiddly Inks came out with some CA-ute new digital images known as Wryn. They are super cute! This one is my favorite, Wryn - New wings. You will definitely see more Wryn in the future!!

One of my goals this year was to participate in Jen's Sketch for you to try. I always "save" them and use but never on time. Well not anymore! I used the January sketch

for my card and must say it worked out perfectly! The sentiment is included with the digital stamp. I just love the saying - it's too sweet!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend!! I'm hoping to get some crafting time in - whatever you have planned I hope it's a fun one!

Love You - Valentine Bear

I'm back with another wonderful image from Mabelle. This little cutie is called Valentine Bear and you can find it here.

I used Sketches by Carly #47 for my layout. I ended up making the card 6x6 which is quite large for me but really like how it turned out.

I used My Mind's Eye Love Me Pattern paper from their 6x6 pad. To see some wonderful cards using Mabelle's fabulous digital & rubber stamp images then visit the Whimsy and Stars Studio Blog. She has lots of images perfect for your Valentine creations!

FBW #186 - Birthday Blessings

WOW there were some fantastic creations last week in our bright challenge. Thanks for playing along. This week it's an OPEN challenge - ANYTHING GOES AS LONG AS YOU INCLUDE A BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL.

I saw the Mojo Monday sketch (here) and this card from Denise (here) so I decided to base my card on them. I used the new Echo Park Yours Truly Paper pad for my card.

Love double sided paper and 6x6 pads - they make coordinating super simple! I finished off the card my continuing the theme on the inside too.

Visit the Flutter By Wednesday blog to enter your creation. Need some inspiration, be sure to visit the other DT's blogs...I always look forward to seeing what they come up with. Such a fabulous team!

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Girly

Well it's been awhile since I've shared one of Mabelle's wonderful digi's. I'm getting back in the swing of things and right now it's all about Valentine's & Friendship. You can find many beautiful digital image in the Whimsy & Stars Studio Etsy Shop. I used Valentine Girly for my card.
Did you know that Doodlebug FINALLY came out with 6x6 pads? They are so I can get fabulous 12x12 and 6x6 papers from one of my FAVORITE manufacturers. Oh how that makes me happy!

I went ahead and did a little decorating on the inside. Not that big of a deal but last year I made all card fronts so this year I'm trying to make FULL cards so I can send them out more. I mean I think I've "collected" enough - time to send and spread some smiles!

For many of us, the weather is cold and it's the perfect time to stay in and do a little creating. Or maybe a little coloring? So grab some coffee, head on over to the Whimsy & Stars Studio Etsy Shop and pick up a few cuties to create with this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

FBW #185 - BRIGHT Colors

Happy Wednesday to you! I'm back with a card for Flutter By Wednesday. We have a fun's time to get rid of the winter blues by using BRIGHT COLORS - along with a butterfly, fairy or angel.

I must say here in Kansas we haven't seen much of the Winter weather yet. I mean the temperatures have been in the 50's and we still haven't seen any snow! I'm sure now since I've said that we'll get some, lol!

For my card I totally CASED it...I have been trying to organize my room and start fresh. So I was focusing my "extra" time (what little it is) to that. Therefore, I wanted something quick and pretty so I turned to Pinterest. Yes, I'm an avid Pinner...totally LOVE it! Want to follow me or see my boards...go here.

The card I pinned was this:

So using my supplies I came up with this card:

I just got a new die to make that awesome my sister and mom got me a ton of wool felt so I had to use it!! Totally LOVE this card and I know that it will definitely cheer someone up!

I hope you will join us and play along. Grab those bright colors and a fairy, butterfly or angel and show us your creation! You can find all the details on the Flutter By Wednesday blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
