Beautiful Jewel Fantasies

My blog post on Positively Me by Julianna Hudgins celebrates beautiful people and by that I mean people who radiate and glow with inner beauty.   I used new products from Spellbinders and of course those gorgeous Jewel Fantasies from Julianna's exclusive die template collection at Spellbinders.  Stop on by for full details on how I created those shimmery peacock feathers...

Have a wonderful day filled with sprinkles of beauty

Inspired by Louboutin and a Chance to Win

I love shoes almost as much as I love crafting!  I think my craft collection only slightly outnumbers my shoe collection so it only makes sense that I bring my two loves together.  One of my favorite shoe designers is Christian Louboutin (famous for his gorgeous red carpet looks as well as his signature red sole and heel)...I made my little party slippers using elegant Momenta paper and Helmar adhesives...

Win Prizes with Momenta & Clearsnap

Today I am participating, with two companies, in a fun blog hop that is sure to inspire you to create with pretty paper, embellishments, inks and foils.  It seems that both Momenta and Clearsnap have it all when it comes to creating cards that have that wow factor!   Here in Colorado we had a sudden drop in temperature and it definitely felt like the start of fall - so that was the inspiration for this card.

I started off using a kraft colored cardstock as my base and then distressed the edges of my Momenta paper using Clearsnap ColorBox inks.  The pretty lattice square is from Spellbinders.  I used Clearsnap ColorBox inks and the stylus tool to blend several colors to create that antique vintage look.  The beautiful shiny leaves were created using Clearnsnap Designer Foil and Design Adhesives...Aaaaand finally I finished off my card with the rolled paper roses that were made from the same Momenta scripted background paper :)

NEW Amazing Paper Grace Kit Club

I am so honored to share with you today the launch of a brand new kit club designed by my friend and uber talented crafter, Becca Feeken!  The exclusive limited edition Kit Club will feature exclusive products from JustRite Papercraft and Spellbinders Paper Arts

On my card today I used Becca's new Spellbinders die template which she designed exclusively for the September 2012 Kit.  Everything you see on Becca's designs is included in the Kit which includes the JustRite stamps and Spellbinders die template.  Remember these products will only be available for purchase through the Kits so they really are exclusive and limited quantities are available too.  

Ready for more ideas using Becca's exclusive stamps and die templates?  The JustRite design team have used their creative talents to design beautiful projects with the exclusive die template and stamps sets from the Kit.

Don't forget to tune in tomorrow on the JustRite Inspiration blog for more great ideas and inspiration using Becca's designs.  I am loving the creations coming from September's Kit - can't wait to see October already *lol*

Back to School Monogrammed Rosettes

Making Monogrammed Rosettes is not only easy but fun too - I love the look of patterned striped paper folded accordion style to create these cheerful beauties.  On today's Momenta blog post I have a mini tutorial that shows you how to fold them and embellish your rosettes with fun stickers and alphas :)

Have fun experimenting with different patterned paper and stickers - I have seen ones with a cute sentiment across the top too.  I will be making these for my two little Star Students who are returning back to school soon!  (if I sound excited it's because I am - just a little bit!)

Happy Tuesday

Fall Inspiration

I love this sentiment from JustRite Papercraft August Release called Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves.  The sentiment alone makes this card so versatile because it can be given year round (not just in Fall hehe).  Here are the deets on the set:

To make this card I simply stamped the images onto white cardstock and colored them with my Copic markers.  I fussy cut each leaf and crumbled them up adding to the shabby chicness *is that even a  word???*.  Foam adhesive squares make the leaves pop off the card :)

I tell ya - after my recent to trip to a HOT San Antonio TX, the mere thought of Fall is a welcome relief!!!  Have a great creative day.

Tied with a Bow and Sprinkled with Sunshine

All the goodness of citrus wrapped up in a bright yellow bow with a sprinkle of Sunshine! That's the inspiration for today's card on the Momenta Blog.  I used gorgeous patterned paper from Momenta's super pad collections and that glittered sentiment is Momenta too.  Of course a card always needs a little Spellbinders right? *lol*  That center panel is cut from Spellbinders Fleur De Lis die template and the gorgeous lemon stamp is Flourishes!

Have a wonderful Sunday - I am off to Michaels in San Antonio TX with Spellbinders to celebrate their Grand Opening!  Fun stuff.

JustRite Paper Craft: Samantha Walker Release Day 3

JustRite Papercraft is hot hot hot. They have teamed up with Samantha walker to create gorgeous stamps that compliment matching Spellbinders die templates.  I am in love with the endless possibilities because now I have soooo many options with my stamps.  It's all too exciting!  On this card I used Samantha Walker's...

These stamps are not only gorgeous on their own but are designed to perfectly compliment her Spellbinders die template collection called:  Botanical Swirls and Accents collection

Seriously and the eye candy just

JustRite Papercraft - Amazing Paper Grace August Release Day 2

Today's JustRite Papercraft project is a wedding card I created using Becca Feeken's new line of stamps that she designed for JustRite.  The set I used on my card is called

I stamped and embossed the flourishes on the bottom of my card.  The sentiment is also stamped and embossed and reads: New Beginnings.  Once again I dipped into my fabulous Spellbinders die template collection which includes Bitty Blossoms and a new M-Bossibilities folder called: Tweets and Twigs (I simply adore the deep embossed edges!).  The intricate rectangle panel was die cut using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles.

{JustRite Inspiration}

I really love Becca's stamps and I wish her and JustRite all the best success as they continue to develop and grow in this new union (and crossing fingers I get to play along on the Journey too *lol*)
Have a great Wednesday
