A trio of cards- 3 Birds Guest Designer

Hi! I am up today with my second project I created for my guest designer spot this month with 3 Birds. I created a trio of cards using the beautiful 3 Birds new Touch of Glimmer Kit and Flora Festival Page Kit. It was hard to stop at just three- the ideas were coming fast and furious with the awesome selection in the Touch of Glimmer kit.  For more details on how they were created please visit the 3 Birds Designs Blog.

It's time for challenge #6 at Scrapy Land. The theme this time is to add texture to your project. 

Once again I used the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath and then layered some leaves using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves.

Don't forget that your project must feature a die(s) brand that Scrapy Land sells. For all the details and to view the work from the talented design team you can visit the blog here

be thankful plaque

Hi! I am up on Clear Scraps today with this simple yet colorful plaque. 

I wanted the focus to be on the leaves and ATC cards which I prettied up using several layers of alcohol inks as well as gold mist. 

Be thankful leaves

The colors are so rich and vibrant and look beautiful with the sun shining through them. 

Be thankful full

(sorry for the angle of this photo. It was extremely challenging to get an effective photo of this without it being at an odd angle.)

Golden Reindeer {card}

Hi! The newest challenge is up at Scrapy Land. For #5 it's another anything goes challenge so I decided to get a head start on some of my Christmas cards. 

I used the beautiful Tattered Lace Reindeer die which I cut and then misted with gold spray. I didn't remove the flourishes from the body because I wanted to keep the focus on the gorgeous reindeer and not have him lost on the background.

I also have some machine stitching around the half circles. 

Thanks for stopping by! :)
