Happy Sweet 16 to my daughter!!!!!!

I was looking for a fun simple spunky card for her so I used some chipboard numbers as a mask and used my glimmer mist to create the background. I then used the glimmer mist on my ribbon (it was originally white and black) from the Really Reasonable Ribbon monthly Ribbon Club and on the flower. I used the overspray to ink the edges of my tags:D Hope you have a great day!

More fun with KnK's September Kit

wow I can't believe the fun I have been having with the KnK September kit! and I still have paper to spare!!! I made this all purpose card. The Kraft paper collection is so versatile! And you can add any color with it and it seems to create this instant "pop" . Here i paired it with some white core purple card stock. I did add some marshmallow glimmer mist to the flower for some sparkle. Have you tried these flowers yet? you really need to!! I am addicted!!

Fall Welcome Sign

I made this Fall Welcome sign (well i suppose it would work for any season but the flowers seemed fallish to me.) using the September Kit from KnK! There are only a few more days to get yours, so if you haven't got it yet what are you waiting for?

I made the rust and orange flowers using the technique I found here. For the rust flower I used a solid core card stock while for the orange one I used a white cored card stock. As you can see below it provides a slightly different look. I also used two different types of flowers from the GEORGE cartridge for my Cricut. These flowers are very addicting so I would expect to see a few more from me. :D oh and the yellow flower was made by layering some Prima flowers I had leftover from the June Kit. Please share you flowers with me :D

Snow Angel

I know its only fall but I was busy making flowers this weekend! and did this "brad" challenge for a new site that has since disappeared (things that make you go hmmmmmmm) . I have had these Prima paper papers for a little while and have been dying to use them. The brads and the Maya Road letters have been in my stash for a while. I added the beading trim to add some wintery sparkle. i added some crackle accents to the butterfly trying to simulate ice.

So what have you been making lately? anything fun??? please link me up!

More September kit fun!

I loved the KnK September Kit. This kit offered so many options! For this card I used the cover sheet that came with the papers. I cut apart the squares on the front. I added glossy accents to the stamped butterfly. For the next layout I wanted to use the papers as is again and add a splash of color.
I loved how it really made the color pop on this picture! and I love the little banners!

It feels like it has been forever since I just played while scrapping! I decided this month I was going to try some challenges around the web! For this card I used the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog challenge which was ribbon and flowers! I used some Prima flowers I have had in my stash for ages to create the layered flowers. I love how it turned out :D
