My favorite Things...

It's been too long and i can't believe summer is almost here again.... I am excited for all the things we have planned to do as a family and of course it's warmer and the days are longer so that means more time to craft.

Today i am sharing some more of my favorite cards i did with Spellbinders when i was on the team. There were always so many gorgeous dies to chose from and both Becca Feeken and Stacey Caron were always my favorites.  And if you haven't been to the Spellbinders store lately you should go and see all the new things that they are releasing!!  It's amazing....

So this is probably one of my favorite things i did.  It's a wedding invitation using one of 
Becca Feeken's pocket dies.   It's gorgeous and easy to make and then all you have to do is fill it in with the invitation and response cards and mail them out.  What could be more elegant or gorgeous than that.

This one i did for one of the trade shows and it was fun to do a little sewing and lots of layers on it with that cute little owl.  I love snowflakes and using them on all kinds of things so this one was really special to me.

And this one i loved the colors and how simple and vintage it looked with the dies and the cute little rocking chair die.  The saying was really special too and perfect to give a special friend.

This one i really love because how the vellum looks as a layer on the card.  The light aqua is such a soft and pretty color and layers from the dies really stand out.  

This one is also one of my favorites because i mixed a bunch of dies together to make it.  I really love the gold and ivory colors together and the butterflies were my moms favorite.

And this one I love because of the pretty designs in the dies and the textured backround.  It was super easy to make with all those gorgeous layers that came in the set and a fun stamp i had in my stash.

Thanks for dropping over and seeing what's new.  And i hope i gave you some ideas to create
a fun card or cards to send out this weekend.... Big Hugs and Smiles!!

Ruby Rock-it Favs

I don't often get the chance to share my other teams posts on my blog but i have a few i want to share today that are some of my favs.  Ruby Rock-it if you don't know already has some amazing paper lines and they also have this fun line called Fundamentals.  These are all your basics that you always need like colored cards, letter, bling, flowers, mini letters and so much more to use for all your crafty things.  I am so blessed to be able to work with all that they have and hope you enjoy a few of the things that i was able to design for them.

This is one of my favorite wedding paper lines that they carry. It is called Betrothed and you can find the link here to order it. It has both gold and silver on the papers so it's easy to mix a neutral color with it to make it personal to match a wedding.

And these papers are from another wedding line that has lots of pretty grey patterns and whites in it.  I mixed it with the Hearts and Stripes papers in silver and pink for these fun Valentine projects.

And this project i did for a friend for her new baby girl.  I used lots of pinks and kraft papers and then added their pretty gold faded empire letters on the top.  They have so many pretty things......

This is also from one of the Bella wedding lines of paper.  This one is called "True Romantic".  I used lots of bling and the new doilies that they came out with in the Fundamentals lines and really had some fun with it.  Just layering pretty papers makes such gorgeous pages.  

And... lastly this is one of my favorite vintage lines that they have called "Faded Empire".  I love all the beautiful colors in this one and really had a good time just making lots of things with it for gifts.  I also used some of my favorite dies from Spellbinders... looks like i will never get over my obsession with them.  Anyway thanks for stopping over to see what is new and hope you have a wonderful and very, very crafty day!!  Teresa

2017 Queen of Hearts blog hop

Welcome to the Quietfire Design's 2017 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop.  This week we're celebrating the release of the new dies, stencils and stamps from Quietfire Design by sharing our best projects!!

Today i am sharing a card that i made with the new stamp release called "Always Believe".  I really love the sentiment on this card and it's such a nice one to send to a friend or colleague to give them a little encouragement in a tough time.

For my card i started with a plain white base and then cut a smaller bit of dark blackish grey to go over it.  Then i used a die to cut the pink rose backround paper and attached that with 3D Foam squares to the card base. 

To make the top i cut it with a die and stamped my image in the center with black ink.  Then i embossed it with clear and let it dry for a few minutes.  To bring out the edges I used a sponge applicator and inked around the inside edges of the space with the die over it to slightly darken it.  And to make it pop out even more i die cut a smaller piece of the blackish grey paper and put it under the sentiment. 

And i finished it with a few tiny rhinestones, some pink folliage and a pretty black satin bow trimmed in silver to match the rhinestones.  

To see the entire new release be sure and check out the "what's new" on the website...

Getting ready for Valentines...

I am so happy for the start of this new year and thankfully one of the first holidays is Valentines and it's my favorite one.  I love all the papers and other goodies you get to create with and it's been fun creating for my DT with all of their gorgeous products too.  So today i have a pretty card that i 
made with a stamp set I got from Penny Black last year.  It's filled with lots of fun sayings so i am sure i will have more to share in the next couple of weeks.  

The papers are from Graphic 45's Mon Amour set and the flowers are a mixture of things in my stash that went really good with this really gorgeous paper line.  I love the muted colors and prints, they are the perfect size and colors to mix and match.

The dies i used are of course from Spellbinders.  I used the basic circle and lacy circles to cut the paper and the tiny doily is from Ruby Rock-its new fundamentals.  The stamp fit perfectly in the center of it.  I hope that you like it.  

Thanks for dropping by and i hope that you have a really nice weekend!!

Time for Tea and a blog hop too...

Hi and welcome to our first Craft Hoarders blog hop of the new year 2017... I hope that your holidays were really fun and you all got lots of time off to spend doing fun things with family and friends.  I spent lots of time at the castle this year which was really fun but did get a few moments to spend with my family to relax so it was a wonderful holiday for me.

If you started the hop in the beginning then you should have arrived from Bonnie's blog....

Today i have a few projects to share that i did for Ruby Rock-it's Faded Empire Collection.  This beautiful line was one of my favorites and i went a little crazy making up some things for a tea party and would also work great for Valentines. The paper line had lots of tags and other fun embellishments and gorgeous victorian papers to create cards, tags and boxes with.  All the fancy edges i have on them are from Spellbinders dies... i have so many of them it's really nice to be able and use them for lots of projects i have....but you can use punches to achieve some of the same ideas.

These projects are my favorites.  Not only for the pretty colors in the papers but also for the pretty princess diecuts that they have to go with the paper line.  It was really fun to do this.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to finish the hop by stopping over to 
Barbara's blog... Each of us is giving a random prize so be sure and leave a comment for a chance to win.  Here is a photo of my prize from Ruby Rock-it!!  I will announce the winner on the 9th and it's only open to US residents :)

For the rest of my life...

Hi again and thanks so much for stopping over today.  I have another Quietfire Design card today to share and this one i also made with one of the new Wedding lines from Ruby Rock-it.  It's a really pretty line of paper called New York and it's filled with lots of pale shades of aqua, black and white and went perfect with the stamp i chose to use for today.

To start my card I found a gate card base in my stash that was white so that is how i began.  I cut rectangles of printed paper to fit both sides of the gates and then made a smaller square to fit inside and match the die that i was using for the sentiment.  I cut 2 layers of the fancy die in white and put 3D foam dots in-between them to make the lace stand out more.  Then before i glued it to the base i wrapped a band of white ribbon around the card and secured it in the back.  The flowers and pearls i added last as my finishing touches.  The sentiment really speaks for itself i think..... it's beautiful.

You can find the stamp in the Quietfire Design store called "For the Rest of my Life".  I love Suzannes' stamps and dies... the sentiments are always so heartfelt and come out so beautiful when you create things with them.  And it's calligraphy and i love that part too!!

I also used Ruby Rock-its new "New York" Collection and you will have to stop over
and see all the other gorgeous things they have new for all those weddings you have coming up.

Thanks again for stopping over and i have lots more to share so i hope to see you soon :)
