Two Paper Divas: Paper Elements #1

I created something out of my norm today.
A Journaling Card!
It's a good thing, I think, to see beyond what
a stamp is typically used for.

The Paper Elements #1 stamp is a brand new one by
I masked out the word "list" from the very top
of the "journaling" area.  Instead I adhered a die
cut there and the negative heart on the bottom.
Some Washi Tape on the edge, rounded corners
and done!  Now it can be part of a scrapbook layout.
I was thinking you could turn this into a 
regular card and hand write reasons why you
 love  the recipient of your card.
Such a personal added touch.  
Or....I could use this as my
list of what to plant in my garden and add a watering 
can die and embellish with some cute vegie paper.  
(Which I happen to have:)  Or....include it as a tag
with a plant giving instructions on care....
and the list goes on....

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Sweet Stampin' - Clean And Simple
Creative Knockouts - #89 Washi Tape

Have a wonderful Wednesday friends!

Birthday Fishies

Happy Sunday Friends!

Today I am sharing a CAS card I created
based on two challenges using 
Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and dies.

The smiling starfish in this adorable stamp
set was perfect for heat embossing.
It really shows off the wonderful detail 
around the edges and gives added 
dimension and shimmer.  The matching
dies made it super easy to cut
 and pop on my card.

I split the blue paper panel with
a wave die and separated it to create
a spot for my sentiment.

Lastly, I adhered some Raindrops
for bubbles and sparkle.

I've got a sweet little boy in mind
to give this to for his summer birthday.
(Working ahead makes me happy :)

Wishing you a "fin"tastic week!  (tee-hee)

Button Flowers Birthday

Hi Friends,

It's such a gloomy day here today so a bright
cheerful card was definitely called for!

I pulled out the brand new Button Flowers set
 and my go to sentiment set Banners 1, both from
Two Paper Divas Stamps.  I love how you can
change up the flowers with button stamps, real buttons,
or like me, add a little sparkle with sequins.
The polka dot "butterfly" is actually one leaf stamp
that I stamped twice.  I just drew in the little body
with a marker.  Fun right?

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

City Crafters - #261 Focus on Flowers
Fantastic Tuesday - #85 Anything goes with a twist -
Add some flowers
Stamping sensations - Flower Power

Another birthday card for a special
little someone checked off my list!

Hope you day is fabulous!
