Here are the projects I created:

Just bee-cause you're YOU!: I am in love with this Rhubarb image, so many possibilities. I created a CAS (kinda) card.

Details:
  • Make card base from White Cardstock.
  • Stamp bees line on the bottom part of your front card.
  • Stamp sentiment.
  • Die-cut a piece of White cardstock using Fleur de Lis Rectangle Die. Ink all edges.
  • Die-cut a piece of Yellow Cardstock.
  • Stamp Rhubarb image on White Cardstock. Color it with Copic Markers, add Star Dust Stickles. Die-cut image using Rectangle Nestabilities.
  • Mat pieces together and adhere them to card.

  • Accessories: Fleur de Lis Rectangle Nestabilities, Rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Pop dots, Copic Markers.

I love you Sister: I made this card for my sister, who has been through a lot lately. I decided to make it very pink-y and add a lot of bling! This card is very interesting, check out all the details :)

Details:
  • Die-cut 2 pieces of Pink Cardstock using Beaded Circle Dies and create a card.
  • Die-cut a piece of White Cardstock and adhere it to card base.
  • Stamp image on a piece of Vellum Paper in Versamark Ink, add White Embossing powder and heat it up.
  • Stamp image on a piece of Polka Dot Patterned paper and butterfly on a piece of Pink Cardstock and Vellum paper. Cut out all pieces.
  • Die-cut, emboss and stencil stamped vellum piece with Square Nestabilities. Adhere it to card base.
