Friends

Hi!
This will be my last post for about 8 weeks. I fell 2 weeks ago and dislocated and fractured my shoulder. It just will not stay in the socket so tomorrow I'm getting a brand new shoulder.
I won't have any new cards to post, but I will be checking in a lot so feel free to leave lots of messages. I'm getting much better using the curser left handed...lol
love,
Doni


I got the idea for this card from the Meow You Doin' stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
The sentiment on the bottom says Let's Be Friends Furever, however the letters are all the same size
and I wanted to use the friends die cut which is way larger. 
so this is what I did:
I used the "s" from the sympathy die. Cut both dies out of the same color , 
cut off the letter and add it to the word and the problem is solved!
Here's what I used to make this card:

Poppystamps - Dies - Friend Folksy Script 
Lawn Fawn - Meow You Doin' Stamps 

Lawn Fawn - Meow You Doin' Dies

Lawn Fawn - Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames Dies 

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog. There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my card or project, I appreciate it!

Smile

ere today with a card that I hope will make you SMILE!
 

 One of the tips  I have for you today is: Never throw away interesting scraps!

Even though I've cut many things from this paper already...I still found room to cut the Smile!
(paper made with distress ink smooshed on glossy paper)

Another tip is to layer dies cuts together for added dimension, in this case I used 4 layers.

Notice how the dots from the i are stuck on some removable tape, believe me those 
 little stinkers can just up and disappear on you!!!

To finish this card all I had to do was cut a panel from some pretty rainbow paper
add it to a Black A2 size card base, add the " Smile" and finish it off with a sentiment strip 
that I white heat embossed on black paper.
 
This is what the inside looks like:
 I used the Stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs for the inside
 and these from DRU:
Impression Obsession - Dies - Smile 
 
Zig 2-Way Glue Pen - Squeeze & Roll

Rad Roses

 Hi!
I'm joining in on the fun with the ANYTHING GOES challenge
over at Paper Smooches!
I'm lovin' this Rad Roses Die from Paper Smooches.
It's hard to see in the above photo, but the flowers have a really pretty shine to them.
I got the cool colors and neat shine by die cutting the Rad Roses from
glossy paper that I had smooshed in distress ink. Like these:
This is so easy to do:
I use my glass matt and smear some distress inks around, spray with water and then smoosh the glossy paper around on it till you like it!

Hope you give it a try!

'till next time,
Doni

Butterflies

Hi! 
Happy Wednesday! 
There is a new challenge up at Little Red Wagon.
This week Brenda is the hostess and her theme is Happy Repeat Day!
 She challenges us to create a card using one of the elements more than one time.

I used the butterfly three times.

Here's what I did on the inside:
 
 The other day, I spent the afternoon playing with watercolors.
I made a big mess and ended up with a bunch of papers with colors smooshed
all over them. Amazing how when I put the butterfly die cut over them they looked much better!!
So that's what I did....glued the butterflies down
 and then cut them out as close to the butterfly as I could.

Supplies used:
Memory Box - Leavenworth Butterfly Trio
                             (used only the large butterfly)
My Favorite Things - sentiment from Beary Special Birthday
Stampendous - Inside sentiment 
4mm sequins assorted colors

Thanks for looking.

'till next time,
Doni

Tacos

Hi!
  Today I'd like to share a birthday card that i made for the
Dies R Us Blog.

This card was easy and fun to make, especially if you love to color!

Start with random stamping. Easy to do because there is no wrong way.
I used Copic Markers.  YR21, YR24, and E55 make a yummy looking Taco shell!
On the inside of the taco have some green for the lettuce, red for tomato and yellow for cheese.
The party hats can be any color...I think next time I do this, I'll make each hat a different color combo.
This is what I used to make this card:
Lawn Fawn - Year Nine Stamps
