Dies R Us Bridal Shower "Best Wishes"!

Hey there die cut friends! 
 I'm here to share my Monday morning tag inspiration with you. 
 
It will be soon the most popular time of year for weddings and "June Brides".  We will be attending one soon and the wedding shower is just around the corner.  I've purchased a gift and decided to create the tag to look similar to the shower invitation. 

I used the die cuts in the photo below which includes the invitation too!



And, here's the shower gift tag...

"Best Wishes"

The color and design of the background paper were almost a perfect match to the invitation.  Lots of hearts were in order since it's for a bridal shower. 


I added the greenery and a couple of handmade flowers.   The two tone bow is topped with lavender and white hearts.  A few randomly placed iridescent sequins complete the tag.

Queen & Co. Pearls

Double D's "Flower" Challenge!

Good morning everyone!

Welcome to the Double D's second challenge for the month of May.  It's been a seesaw ride with the weather here in South East Pennsylvania.  We had a high of 90 the first week with temps in the 50's and 60's too.  And this week, we're back up into the high 80's and 90's.  The flowers are loving the rain and cooler weather.  My garden has been in full bloom with Tulips, Pansies, Phlox, Iris, Bleeding Heart and Verbena.  I can't wait for the Nikko Blue Hydrangeas...they are a summer time  favorite along with the yellow roses.

Our challenge theme is perfect for the Spring time blooms we are seeing all around...
(You MUST USE MORE THAN ONE FLOWER on your project)

And, to inspire you, we have this fabulous mood board to share.
 


The Design Team will choose a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 to receive our Double D Badge to display in their blogs.  A prize is being offered also with the winner being chosen by random.org.  Everyone is invited to play along as prizes are shipped internationally too!

You could win this awesome die cut...
 
Memory Box Tall Poppy/Left Corner

Here's my "Flowers Galore" inspiration...

 "hope, dream, believe"


I love this floral patterned paper.  The muted design and colors were similar to the second and third photos on the mood board.  I die cut the upper corner of the patterned paper with my new "Atessa" die from the Dies R Us Store.  The double loop bow is a favorite design of mine that I learned from Bonnie Garby of Really Reasonable Ribbon.  She has a great You Tube channel with lots of tutorials for making spectacular bows.

Dies R Us "Sweet" Baby!

Hi and happy Monday crafty friends!
 
Today, on the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog, I'm sharing some "Sweet Baby" inspiration with you.  We've added two new baby girls to our family circle in the past six months, have friends expecting to expand their circle and baby cards are in high demand.
 
"Sweet"

As always, I've added layers to my card using both patterned paper and cardstock.  There are many colors in the patterned paper and I chose to use the gold, green, coral and kraft as accent colors.

The die cuts I've used today are available in the Dies R Us Store.  You'll find a wide variety of die cuts in their extensive inventory. 
 




I love the intricate design in the baby block background.  It has a great pattern that is very versatile and can be used for more than just baby cards!
 

I cut the "Sweet" sentiment from two different colors of cardstock because I wasn't sure which I would like best.   Well, as it turns out, I used one as matting for the other! 


 
It helped to pull in all the colors in the patterned paper.

Dies R Us "Best Wishes"!

Hey there blogger friends...

Today I have a fun, and basically simple card made entirely of cardstock.
 

The 6 x 6 card base has three additional layers in turquoise, green and white. 




I wanted to create a background that matched the cardstock layers so I pulled out two matching mist colors and lightly sprayed the white cardstock.  The Tattered Angels Seafoam and Dylusions Fresh Lime were a perfect match.
 
 
Next, I added a background design using the Poppystamps Background Scribble.  The "scribble" is cut from bronze glitter paper.  This is such an amazing die cut!  It reminds me of a swirling vortex.
 
 
 
I cut the Tutti Designs "Best Wishes" from both colors of cardstock and layered one over the other for a shadow effect.
 
 
 
The final embellishments on the card are these awesome sequins that I recently won from Crafter's Corner.  I was impressed with how many different shapes and designs are in the jars!
 
 
I love the fun, whimsical feel this card gives me!
