Hi Unity fans! This evening I am joining Unity in hopping along for the newest release! I created a very sparkly card with one of the gorgeous Hannah Girl from the Angie Girls collection


To make this card, I stamped and colored the entire image with my copic markers.

Then, using matching shades of Nuvo Glitter drops, I added them on top of the colored images.

She turned out pretty cute!

Pretty Pink Posh | 4th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop


Hi y'all! Thanks for joining me on this awesome 4th birthday celebration blog hop! You should have arrived from the AMAZING Sandy Allnock's blog. (*blushing)

For this hop, I've created a card with the super cute set you can get with a $60 purchase!




To make this, I stamped the butterflies and colored them with copics. Stamped the "Hello Gorgeous" from the NEW Love Sentiments Set.  Next I fussy cut the edges around it and set aside. My Perfect Plum cardstock was then die-cut using Stitched Borders 3 Dies 


I then repeated the process 3 more times. Next, using foam adhesive I placed my stamped panel on to the larger of the border cardstocks. Alternating between foam adhesive and regular I added the borders.

Then, I added lots of Nuvo drops to the butterflies.

This is a FUN card with the little but MIGHTY set, right?!

Winnie & Walter | Re-Run The Party

Happy Wednesday!

Just stopping with this card made using Winnie & Walter's The Party for this month's Re-Run Challenge.


For this card, I really tried to make this with this one stamp set. 

To start, I stamped my card panel with the stripes hat in a repetitively with a light gray ink.


 Then using the Big Round Balloons Cutaways, I die cut a vellum balloon. The sentiment was then heat embossed in silver and layered over the balloon. 

 
 The party hat was then stamped and cut and added to the sentiment. I added silver tinsel on to the tip. Silver sequins were added to finish the card. Hurray!

Hugs,

Crystal

Pretty Pink Posh | Sparkle Dot Pattern 1 | Valentine's Day

Happy Tuesday! First, I want to start with announcing I am honored to be part of the Pretty Pink Posh design for another term. I am super happy and excited to be part of this amazing group of designers.

Now on to my project since Valentine's day is around the corner, and the typical Valentine's Day colors were an inspiration to this card.


The main focus of this was the heart from Pretty Pink Posh Sparkle Dot Pattern 1.



I began by repeating stamping the hearts in various shades of pink on to the white card stock. Then adding Pretty Pink Posh Friendship Mix sequins. Next, Nuvo drops were added in in various shades of pink and purple. 


The sentiment from Everyday Greetings was heat embossed in white onto matching pink cardstock and added on to the card base with foam adhesive.


I loved how neither of these sets are Valentine theme, yet it turned out quite cute. 

Hugs,
Crystal

Pretty Pink Posh | Black and White Thank You

Happy Post Christmas Tuesday! I am here with a fun and simple card made with Pretty Pink Posh "thank you" die set and the exclusive StampTember Simon Says Set.

To make this card, I die cut white cardstock center from Stitched Notes dies. Then in black, I stamped the images from Damask Greetings. 


 The "thank you" die cut was adhered to the card base with foam adhesive.

To conclude, three white confetti sequins were added to the bottom of the die cut. 



This card was very simple and fun to make. Perfect for some thank you greetings. 

Hugs!

Pretty Pink Posh | Winter Wonderland Birdies

Hi there! Today I have a fun and sweet card made with the birds from Pretty Pink Posh Winter Wonderland. 



I started by coloring and die cutting the birds and branch from the set. Then on a separate cardstock, I blended Distress Oxydes. Once that was all dried up, I splattered Gold Watercolor and adhered the circle to the white card base that had been matted over the red cardstock.


To finish, I heat embossed the sentiment on red cardstock and attached that to red twine!


And that's that! Fast, sweet and easy! You can totally make this in 10 minutes. 

Hugs,

Crystal
