Love is Sweet - Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

It's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge time. Today I am sharing the Love Is Sweet card I created with dies and stickers. Imagine that....

 The Heart Happy Workshop Kit is the sweetest!! If you take a look at this card versus the one from the last challenge it's amazing that they come from the same paper collection. Are you feeling the love on how versatile this paper is?! LOVE πŸ’ž

 Here is the sketch I followed. There is still time check out the challenge and submit your creation. 

 Do you like the scallop border? If so check out the decorative borders dies. You can achieve this same look and much more!
 How cute are these stickers I used for embellishing!! They are apart of the below collection. Add a little shimmer on the cute!!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Thank You - Budding Peony

OMG have you seen the Budding Peony stamp and die? I absolutely adore this card inspired by Erum Tasneem who created a video on Jennifer McGuires blog showing you the Faux Dimension technique.
 This is a must have stamp and die! You can use different mediums to color the flower. In this case I used Copic Sketch markers.
 I hand drew the lines in different sizes the way Erum displayed in her video. I used Canary, Eggplant and Black reinker for the splatter effect. 

 The shadow around the flower was created using a water brush and Pewter ink. Love, Love, Love it!! Of course I add shimmer to selected spots on the flower.

It's Your Day...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

 Check out the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. This is a super cute sketch. I made a card using the sketch and I love the finished product. Now who can I send a Birthday card too?! 

Here is my birthday card using the Years of Sweetness stamp set along with Heart Happy collection promotion paper pack.  The cool thing about this stamp set is the corresponding cuts are from the Artbooking cricut cartridge.
 The cupcake is cut from Artbooking. I used Candy Apple, Carolina, Saffron, Black and Sapphire ink.

Happiness Is A Butterfly....

I am such a lover of butterflies so I clearly had to get the new Butterfly Friendship stamp and thin cut set. I went with a purple theme using Lilac and Pansy ink and had fun using the masking technique.

 How cute are the Sugarplum Glitter Gems??
