Flying By To Say Hello | CTMH

 

So I've had this cute CTMH Hello Ladybug stamp + Ladybug Shaker Window Thin Cuts set for a bit and finally put them together on a card.



I started with a white A2 panel.  Layered an aqua panel and then lined up a white backed Multi Circle Windows Thin Cuts. 

The sentiment strip on the front is from Taylored Expressions - Simple Strips - Crafty, A Crafty Collab with Brutus Monroe.

The Ladybug Shaker Window Thin Cuts makes it so easy to assemble.  The stitched dots are your guide to stamp the dots from the Hello Ladybug stamp set.  I happened to have red brads that matched perfectly with the cardstock.

The inside:


I either don't fill up my shakers enough or I over fill them.  It says:

Flying by to say hello.

Definitely not a postal friendly design but I love all the different elements.

I hope you have an amazing weekend!

Welcome Little One | Lawn Fawn

 

I have a bit of a backlog of uninked sets and decided to work with Lawn Fawn's Den Sweet Den set:


My Bristol base panel has Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain blended on it.  I used the Stitched Dens Lawn Cut on a woodgrain panel by Gmund.  It's a German based paper company that I discovered when Paper Zone [for you Pacific Northwesterners] was still around.

The copics I used:

YR30 | E50 | E51 | E53
E97 | YR18
E23 | E25


The sentiment is from Swan Soiree.

I was inspired by Color Throwdown:

Reverse Confetti | January Creative Hop + New Release


Today is the day, it's the Reverse Confetti January Release Day!  We're celebrating with a hop.  The fun starts on the Reverse Confetti blog.  You should have arrived here from my new teamie Candice's blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the Reverse Confetti blog so you don't miss out on any of the fun!

I have two projects to share with you today, here's the first one.  It's a fun card that features the new Words of Love stamp set:


Let's start from the bottom and work our way up.  I started with a midnight panel and layered an Iced Aqua Big Polka Cover Panel.  Then I cut the new Outlined Frame Cover Panel in midnight and used a plain rectangle die to cut out the interior.

I layered one of the Circle Rays Duos in Premier Polar White and used the Big Love confetti cuts in the following cardstock colors:
Flamingo
Iced Aqua
Midnight

I heat embossed a portion of a sentiment from Words of Love in white on a midnight strip.


My other project uses the Pencil & Treat Holder confetti cuts.  I used Iced Aqua with it and stamped the big polka from Background Builder in the same ink color.  Do you know what I used it for?  It's a glass/reusable Boba Straw!

I used the tag die from the Pencil & Treat Holder confetti cuts and heat embossed a clipped sentiment from the Words of Love set.

Today we're featuring:

Love is in the Air stamps and coordinating confetti cuts
Picture Perfect stamps and coordinating confetti cuts

I'm also featuring:

Layered XOXO
Outlined Frame Cover Panel

Here's how I was inspired:


My first card features the super sweet Love Is In The Air set.  I teamed it up with the Layered XOXO.  The base is Tangerine cardstock and the Layered XOXO is Tangerine and Flamingo, love that duo!

I kept the designer clean and did a bit of masking with the Snail and Raccoon.  


My other card is a combo of Picture Perfect and the Outlined Frame Cover Panel:


The Picture Perfect set is so much fun, isn't it?!  I LOVE the added popcorn image.  I'm a popcorn'aholic!  So the new Outlined Frame Cover Panel is one solid piece.  I layered it with a Starstruck Cover Panel in Navy Blue backed with Bumblebee.    

The sentiment has been heat embossed on a Navy strip and cut out like a flag.


The car has been grounded on a Stone strip that I used the grassy hills confetti cut from Nuts About You.  I just trimmed off all the grass.  

The Trees are from Cookies & Milk.


That's it for me today.  I can't wait to hop around and see what my teamies designed!  Leave a comment on January 7th and there will be a $15 Gift Certificate for one blog commenter and also one FB commenter.  Make sure you pop over to the Reverse Confetti Blog for all the details!

I also have a quick project using the new Pencil & Treat Holder confetti cuts:


I upcycled a page from my Rifle Paper Co 2020 Calendar.  It's perfect for that die.  I popped in a white colored pencil. A fun little treat for some unsuspecting crafters.
