Spellbinders: Build a Scene - Life is a Beautiful Ride

Hi everyone! 

My second post for today and I am sharing super fun interactive card using the newest release from Spellbinders - Make a Scene collection!!! I combined few add ons to create my scene. To make the card you will need the Make a Scene base which comes separately and then there are several add ons to have different scenes. I love the bike from the Rolling Along Scene and combined it with the sentiment from the Make a Scene Bold Greetings  and added the clouds from the Cozy Home Scene.

Also I used the Make a Scene Sentiments set to stamp the sentiment on the frame of the card.

The card when closed is 5"x7" and lays flat, then you pull it out and you get the fun shadow box type of card.

Also there are add ons that you can use to decorate the front of the card. Super fun!

Impressions Obsession: Be Crafty

Hi everyone!
We have set aside a day to share some fun themed projects! This month’s theme is "Be Crafty"!
Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog.
I have couple cards to share today! The February release has several stamps that fit this category and I am loving them.
For my cards I used the Watercolor Supplies stamp along with the Moments sentiment for the first card, where I decided to create a square card. I stamped the image in black and embossed in clear, then watercolored with Karin markers, added the embossed sentiment and assembled my card.
For my second card I had similar approach, but I did standard A2 card and stamped the sentiment directly on the watercolor paper, and left the background white instead of coloring it. I used the Palette and Paint stamp along with Herself sentiment stamp.

Pink and Main: Hello Sweet Friend

Hi everyone!
 I am over on the Pink and Main blog today, so I decided to pop in here and share the card I made with you too, as I LOVE LOVE this new set that was released yesterday. It is called Gnome Matter What , I also used the coordinating dies. This is a large set and has the cutest gnome images and is perfect for coloring.
I used the largest image and spent some time coloring it, so I decided to keep my card simple and let the image take the focus of the card.
To make the card start by stamping the image using black ink and color with alcohol based markers. Once you are satisfied with the results, use the coordinating die to cut it. Stamp the sentiment on black card stock and emboss in white. Die cut it using the coordinating die! Assemble your panel and adhere to black note card using some craft foam.

Today the Hero Arts Creative Team is hopping with Reverse Confetti and celebrating the new Partner set called Better Together. We also have give aways (details on bottom of this post)
Born with creativity in her blood, Ellie, daughter of Reverse Confetti owner, Jen del Muro, designed this uplifting and versatile multi-step floral set for the Hero Arts Partner collaboration.

The Better Together stamp set is an abstract flower multistep set where you can build some fun and funky flowers. However I decided to go on a tangent here and I used the elements to create a fun multicolored background for my sentiments (the sentiments in this set are amazing).  I used Tide Pool, Butter Bar and Soft Granite and stamped some of the half circles in the set. Then just added sentiment. I decided to keep them fun and simple and easy to mass produce and send to people for encouragement

I have 3 cards today to share with you and all of them feature the new Stamp and Cut sets with word dies (Love You Stamp and Cut XL, Big Hugs Stamp and Cut and Hello There Stamp and Cut). I combined those with Butterfly Garden Background stamp and the Diamond Infinity Dies

I had so much fun with the diamond infinity dies, that you will see a lot of cards using those in the upcoming days on my blog. 

For my first card I stamped. the background on Pebble cardstock using Embossing ink and embossed using Satin embossing powder. For my other two cards I used the Diamond infinity dies and cut out frames from different colors and then assembled them back together on printer paper and cut them to fit my panels. I did this by securing the diamond dies with tape on the back and running through my die cutting machine.
