Happy Easter

Hi! 
Easter is in just a few days, so This card won't make it in the mail till 
next year. But that will be nice to be extra early and not late for a change!  

This card was inspired by the mood board over at

I love this die that I just got from Simon Says Stamp.

Here's
 a closer look:

that's striped paper underneath ..and the white base is 4 layers deep.
Pretty and easy to do...a winning combination!

Thanks for looking! 

'till next time,

The sky is the limit

Hi Everybody!
It's Wednesday and time for a new Challenge at Little Red Wagon.
This week  Jan wants us to  Look Up, Way Up .....
so our card can have anything in the air like.... birds, balloons, airplanes etc. 
 I chose to use this sweet design called Up and Away by Stacey Yacula.
You can find it over at Purple Onion Designs.
I stamped the image and then realized that I wanted to sponge on some clouds, 
so I had to make a mask of the whole image....sure would have been easier to do the
sky first and then stamp over it! lol
Now it's your turn to join us.
 Head over to Little Red Wagon
check out  the great cards from the other “Girlfriends” and link up your own project.
"till next time,
Doni

April Showers

Hi Everybody!
It's Wednesday and time for a new Challenge at Little Red Wagon.
 I'm super excited to be a brand new girlfriend on their design team. 

This weeks challenge is "April Showers". You can explore ideas about water or rain
or  use water as a technique such as watercoloring or using Brusho's.

Here's my take on April Showers:

I used the Rainy Day Play stamp set from Clearly Besotted.

If you'd like more inspiration be sure to check out
the wonderful projects the Girlfriends have created over at the Little Red Wagon. 

I'm also joining in with the fun over at The Sisterhood Of Crafters
with this card.

 'till next time,
Doni

Loads of Fun

Hi!
Today I'd like to share with you a card I made for friends that 
just announced that they 're expecting a baby!


The inside says Congratulations on your big, tiny news.
I used two lawn fawn stamps to make this card, they are linked below.
I started by stamping the washer and using a small circle die to cut out the window .
Behind the opening I attached clear acetate because I want to make this a shaker.
Using Copic Markers I colored the washing machine and some really sweet baby clothes.

Next I assembled the shaker by arranging the clothes and bubbles ( oh yes, I almost forgot..
I used a third Lawn Fawn stamp just for these bubbles!) on to a white background. 
next, add some shaker tiny beads and make sure everything fits inside the washer window.
  
Cut out the washer and add foam tape on the back. Place the washer over your 
clothes and bubbles and trim to fit under the washer. Now your shaker is finished and the last step is to make a card base to put it on, stamp a sentiment and you're done!
Below are the supplies I used to make this card:
Lawn Fawn - Loads Of Fun Stamps

Lawn Fawn - Little Bundle Stamps 
 Lawn Fawn - Rub-A-Dub Stamps 
Lawn Fawn - Rub-A-Dub-Dub Stamps 
I hope I was able to inspire you to use your dies, create a project and come play along at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog for a chance to win a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store.

'till next time,

Have a Magical Day

Hi!
Doni here today with a very dimensional any occasion card.
 I love these sweet images. That's where you start , by coloring a bunch of images.

Then to create the dimensional frames I used the stitched rectangle layer die from Memory Box
and cut 4 of the largest die chosen.
 I used all the same color on my card, but so it will be easier to see on the demo I used 4 different colors.

Then cut a different size rectangle from the center of each panel leaving the last one solid.

Now you're ready to stack them up starting at the bottom. For more dimension, just add foam tape 
to the back of each frame like I did in my card.

Arrange your colored images to look cute and then place the finished panel onto a card base and your done!

These are the supplies I used with links to the Dies R Us Store for your convenience: 
Lawn Fawn - Fairy Friends Stamps 
 
Memory Box - Dies - Open Studio - Stitched Rectangle Layers 

 I hope I was able to inspire you to use your dies, create a project and come play along at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog for a chance to win a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the first and fifteenth of every month.  Be sure to Follow Us on Facebook too and don't forget that you will find loads of inspiration on our Pinterest Page.
