Christmas in July at Casual Fridays

It's Christmas in July over at Casual Fridays Challenge This will get everybody going thinking about their Christmas cards early..... maybe?

Here's my card for the challenge. I've made a little lantern card with some SU die cuts Sleigh Ride. I used a rotating color battery operated tea light in my card so I've added a couple of colors. It's really quite pretty with the revolving light. After I thought I was finished I decided to add a few more embossed snowflakes and a rhinestone to the snowflake cutout. The card folds down to a 4.5" x 4.5.
I used a bit of dimensional tape for the sentiment to prop up the back. I added Stickles for snow. The inside of the circle is covered with velum and I used my white pen to randomly add white dots for snowflakes. I used some pressure making the dots so that they look slightly raised.

Create Along with Us June '17

This week is the Create Along with Us at PTI. All the details can be found HERE I have chosen to recreate Laurie's card. I'm just loving everything about it!  I pretty much copied it as best I could with my supplies. This is her card.
For my card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to give the backing texture. I ran my versamark over top and then brushed it with some pearl powder to replicate her shimmery background. Dies by Stamplorations and Spellbinders. I used PTI Soft Stone cardstock and stamps Beautiful Blooms II, Life and Remember to create the flowers and leaves. My flowers were bigger and took up more space so I couldn't fit an extra sentiment. Other than that it's a CASE!!

Felt Flower Card

Today's card is for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge. All details can be checked out HERE I used PTI Felt and Beautiful Blooms smallest die to make my center flower. Leaves were cut with Wplus9 leaf die. Tiny flowers with Top Dog die. Sentiment from PTI Through the Trees. Scalloped squares by Nestability. I was hestitant about joining this challenge because I wasn't sure about the felt flowers but they really are fun to make and really add a special touch to a handmade card.

May '17 Blog Hop

It's time for the Blog Hop over at Papertrey Ink. All the details can be found HERE This is the inspiration photo.

I made a Thank you card for my take on the photo. I used the PTI stamp set Remember. Long time since I used that set. And the SU set Heard from the Heart. I stamped it on watercolor paper and then watercolored after stamping and added a bit of black centers with some glossy accents although it's hard to see. A little tag stamps with Lots of Thoughts. I love these colors!!
