Remember Me Card

Hello all! Happy Wednesday. Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals blog.
I created this card using the angel wings stamp from the VO Wings set.  I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then die cut a circle out of the center using a GMD double stitched in & out circle die.  I took the inside circle and shaded the feathers using Spun Sugar Distress Ink as a watercolor.  Once that dried, I splattered the circle with Black Soot and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks.  Out of that inner circle, I also die cut a heart from the center using a GMD heart die.  I adhered the circle back to the center of the card with ATG, but popped the heart up with foam tape for more dimension.
A bow of Totally Pink Trendy Twine was at the base of the heart die cut.  I stamped the sentiment which can also be found in the VO Wings set and added three enamel dots from the GMD Sophisticated collection.
Here is a close up look at the VO Wings set.

Remember, we have our Wings challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

Minecraft Happy Birthday~DCD Guest Designer

Hello all!  Today I am a guest designer on the Die Cuttin Diva's blog.  Head on over there to see all the other DT creations and to participate in their BIRTHDAY challenge!  This is what I created for inspiration:
I started by making the background using scraps of cardstock.  I layered them to be reminiscent of Minecraft world layers.  I then embossed the background with a folder that had squares on it.  I tied Chocolate Truffle and Limeade Trendy Twines around that background layer.  The focal point banner and words were created using unbranded die cuts from eBay and the Minecraft Steve head was a svg file I created and cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  I added sequins in the bottom corner with Glue Dots for a finishing touch.
Since I have 3 boys and they get invited to birthday parties, I decided to make several more of these cards!
So what are you waiting for?  Head on over to the Die Cuttin Diva's blog and enter in their "Birthday" challenge today!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Rainbow and Clouds Card

Good morning all!  Today I have a fun and cheery card to share with you.
This card revolves around the GMD stitched cloud border dies set.
I used those dies to cut clouds out of white cardstock and vellum.  I added various sequins to the clouds using glue stitch squares from Glue Dots.
The rainbow was created with circles of varying diameters.  The largest size was 3" and they decreased in .25" increments.  I tucked it between white and vellum cloud layers.  The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink with a Heidi Swapp stamp.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Apple For The Teacher Card

Good morning!  This week my boys started school and one of them had a teacher whose birthday was on Thursday, so I made her this card.
 The card is created from a svg file from SVG Attic's JGW Apple Dandy set.  I used DCWV's Grade School stack for the patterned papers.
 The apple and sentiment are popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Pink and Main's Birthday Wishes stamp set.  The embellishments  I used were Lime Licorice Trendy Twine and GMD Watermelon enamel dots.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
