3X3 Love


I fell in love with The Lollydoodle line as soon as I saw the fun colors, stamps, and accessories that came with it. The colors that compliment this line include sorbet, pear, and cotton candy and they have such cute owl and process stamps that work very well into the line ~ I mean seriously how fun!
 
Below I made a basic 3X3 card with 2 fun stamp designs from the Lollydoodle Card making Kit.
 





The outline curled stamp is one and the love stamp is another. The heart stamp was something fun that I had from another day and time :) and could easily be replaced with another one. I love the 3-D aspect of the embellishment and feel like it adds a slight pop to the card.

Hello Skylark

I wanted to take some time and show you the other side of the B&T Duos Skylark Paper. If you missed the first side of the paper you can find that post here: Big Hug.  This side of the paper is a little deeper in color but it still holds that beautiful pattern.
The "Hello" was stamped using the stamp from Lollydoodle Card making kit along with our exclusive slate ink. This is a great card making kit to pick up for anyone looking for an easy project or some quick but stunning cards. The kit includes a total of 15 cards, 3 designs at 5 cards each, it comes with 11 fun stamps, shimmer trim, and sequins.

Big Hug from Skylark

I finally found some time to play around with the new Skylark paper set and wow how beautiful it is.
The B&T Duos pack offers 6 12X12 double sided sheets along with 6 12X12 matching solid colored sheets. There is also a scrapbooking kit offered which comes with the beautiful flowers shown below and a 9 piece stamp set and many other great products (like the "Picture My Life" scrapbook program.) Make sure to check out the complete line over at my shop.

 
 
Seriously look at that beautiful pattern and those neutral colors with that bold blue. The complements offer a lot of bird scenes with cages and whatnot which I will admit at first I was a little concerned with how to use them. Although once I started working with the set I realized it can fit a number of themes, plus it's very springy to work with such a nature inspired sets this close to the end of winter.
 
 
The stamp is the only piece of the project not in the Skylark set. Along with the skylark kit I also picked up the "Big Hug" Stamp set found on page 111 of the idea book. I was looking for a generic "phrases" stamp that I could use to build off my collection and this was a great choice.
 
The collection offers 10 different sayings.

Let It Snow!

My latest creation thanks to living on the East Coast of the US. :0) Brent it on snow!!
 
 
I recently read an article in the OA (October Afternoon) blog where the writer was discussing the use of warm and cool colors. The article challenged readers to create a piece that used with an all cool scheme or an all warm scheme and since we have been surrounded by warm schemed holidays I decided it was time to practice with a cool palette. 
 
Again I kept with a simple card adding some white buttons and twine wrapped as  a cozy snowman scarf. I cut out the "Let it Snow" and sprinkled some snowy glitter in a purple.

Friendship & Flowers

This is a card that I made a few days ago for a friendship blog hop. I love how I used the flowers cut out from extra yardstick to give the card a 3-D look. I also love how the white curls around the edges. This card would also look nice with some small embellishments perhaps across the bottom right or even a bow across the end of the ribbon. Overall it's a nice easy layout and is a great "Spring is right around the corner" card. :)
 
 
On another note we are now into February which means we have a new stamp of the month for you.  I have been anticipating this Foxy collection for a while and can't wait to get it and show it off to everyone. Make sure to head on over to CTMH and pick up your set.
 
only $5.00 with qualifying purchase 
 
Happy Crafting!
