I'm here with my DT card for AAA Birthday where we have an easy challenge for you: Anything Birthday goes! We have a bunch of new DT members too so don't miss any of the inspiration, fun or challenge details, click HERE.
My card is a trifold card I learned to make in Hero Arts Spring Stamp Along a while back. The card focuses on using HA Looking Glass dies, this is the Birthday Party set. The set consists of three layers that you can use together or separately. In my card two of the die cut scenes are stacked together (on the second leaf of the card) and one is cut to the front leaf. The card base is made out of two standard size card bases stacked together. Hope all of that makes some sense! :) I've colored the images with Copics and stamped sentiments by Stampendous.
Hope you like and thank you for popping by!

I'm back with more GD cards for Picket Fence Studios July Release. The first one is a one layer scene card! It's been a while that I've made something like this. I used Slimline Tall Christmas Tree stencil and cut myself a mountain stencil with Scene Building dies: Mountains. I used a random circle die from my stash for the sun and finished the card with a sentiment from Fancy Life Events stamp set. The inks I used were mostly distress inks. I also splattered some white paint on top of the whole scene for a more wintry look.
In my second card I wanted to play with the beautiful new die, Opulent Negative Strip die. It makes an elegant background and I chose to pair it with Vintage Apple stamp + die (by the way in a great sale right now!!). I colored the apple with Copics and it's actually more like a plum this time... I think that works too! The sentiment comes from the This Rain Will Pass stamp set and I've used the coordinating die too. Hope you like and thanks for popping by!

Today I have a very exciting post for you... I'm guest designing at Picket Fence Studios for their July Release!! So many wonderful new goodies are being released... And I was thrilled to play with these products!! Thank you Picket Fence Studios for this great opportunity. I had a blast and was very inspired!
I'm sharing 3 cards today and two more during the weekend. There's product links available and I'm sharing some product photos too. Please check out all the details from Picket Fence Studios store and blog!
In my first card I created a sunflower background with the A Sunflower stamp. I cut masks with A Sunflower coordinating die and stamped and masked the background panel. I colored the panel with Copics. I used Scene Building Rectangle Two die for creating the white frame that I have lifted from the panel with foam. The white heat embossed sentiment comes from This Rain Will Pass, it's cut out with the This Rain Will Pass Coordinating die. I finished the card with white paint splatters and Sequins from Sequin Mix.
This card was so easy and fun to make, yet the outcome is so impactful! I stenciled the leaves design from Slim Line Shadow of Leaves stencil using Spanish Moss Paper Glaze and Turquiose Jewelry Paper Glaze on greyish card. I just love the blend of colors and all the sparkle! I also used white glitter card for Slimline Oversized Cherished die for even more sparkle! I die cut the sentiment four times and stacked the die cuts for lots of dimension. I trimmed my panel to be closer to a mini slimline card. I finished the card with Sequins from Sequin Mix.
I begun this card by making the leaves with More Ash Leaves die. I used white glitter card for the top layer and scraps of pastel colored card for the bottom layer. These leaves are so detailed and pretty! I made the background with Shadow of Leaves stencil and Arctic Fox Paper Glaze. The sentiment comes from A Sunflower Coordinating die and I used black glitter card for the top layer of my 4 dies thick stack! A lot of fun dimension here! I finished the card with Sequins from Sequin Mix. I'm adding a slightly "darker" close up photo so you can see the sparkle from the paper glaze and glitter card better!
So, after seeing all the three cards... Which one is your favorite?!? Thank you again Picket Fence Studios for this fun GD gig! Make sure to check out the whole release from Picket Fence Studios store.

It's time for a new monthly challenge at AAA Birthday. For the month of July we have a fun and unique theme for you: "Where In the World" would you want to celebrate your birthday?!?
I've never visit tropic places or a jungle... So I chose a tropic/jungle theme for my birthday card! The leave stamps and dies are from Altenew, the frame die is by Hero Arts and sentiment by Stampendous. Love how gold and turqouise look together!
Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge information and lots of more DT inspiration. I look forward seeing what you'll create!

It's time for a new challenge at Time Out! This time we have a great challenge for you:
Sending a handmade card is an act of kindness in itself isin't it! The sentiment I chose is maybe more fitting for a Friendship or Blossom theme... But at least in my world all of my friends are kind people lol!
The flower cluster is made with Altenew stencils and dies. I used Altenew inks for stenciling and also added little extra depth with Altenew woodless coloring pencils. The sentiment comes from a Gina K set. I made an oval stencil with a SSS die and stenciled the shape to my card base with more Altenew ink. I wanted some added interest so I used an old diamond stencil from my stash (no idea from who, sorry!) Some gold paint splatters and gold gems finish off the card!
Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and glorious DT inspiration. If you play along you could be chosen as our guest designer -this time our guest is the very talented Arlene Rose.
I'm sharing this at Altenew June Inspiration Challenge
