K Monogram Card

IMG_1916

This card may have turned out even better than planned.  I really like it but I wanted to do the stitching in white.  The only white thread I had was too thick to fit through the needle on my machine so this was my next choice.  Funny thing is this is the only time I ever sew!  The one exception would be girl scout patches and last year I found it easier to hot glue them on.  It was the only thing I found to work and I tried everything!  Anyway, back to my card…I used my glitter mist again (fun!), just for the letter K.  The butterflies came with glitter on them already.  I also folded the wings of the butterflies for an even more 3D look which really adds to the card.  They were easy to fold once I attached the pearls.

B Monogram Card

I decided with the busy patterned paper on this card that I didn’t need any embellishments.  I’m glad to have a masculine card done.  This was the first time I have used glitter mist and what fun!!  The color I used was not near as bright as I expected but I like how fast it dries.  I definately need to experiment more!

I Scream, You Scream…

IMG_1867

…we all scream for ice cream!  I didn’t have a diecut or any kind of ice cream stamps so I had to improvize for this card.  Sometimes that works and other times it doesn’t.  This was one of those time when what I thought in my head was actually how it turned out!  I distressed the edges of the blue with my CTMH Distresser.  I used Liquid Applique to add dimension to the ice cream and embossed and sanded the lines on the cone.  The blue button was a bit bright and took away from the ice cream cone so I added a yellow button sticker to the top to tone it down.

Products used:  KI Memories paper, Basic Grey pearls, Liquid Applique, Funky Flower stickers by Pebbles, Inc. (button sticker), unknown ribbon and button.

Alice in Wonderland

IMG_1847

This was a fun layout and the colors worked well together.  I kinda wish I had made the rhinestone circle smaller but I like the pattern.  I used a Mini Dots All Around template by TheCraftersWorkshop.com.  I love this little template for making circles with eyelets, brads, buttons, bling, etc.  Layout was based on Scrap Sketch #120.

Products used: Making Memories paper, Reminisce paper, KI Memories flourish glitter border sticker, Alice in Wonderland Disney stickers by EK Success, Basic Grey bling it rhinestones, and Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge.
