Sweet Stamp Shop Grand Re-Opening

Today I'm hopping along in a blog hop celebrating Sweet Stamp Shop's Grand Re-Opening! When Nicole asked if anyone would want to participate, I knew I wanted to join. Nicole and Jacob are seriously the sweetest people around and I just couldn't resist! 

So we all know I'm about gold. Anything gold so of course, I decided to use one of their newer stamps from their state collection. I can't wait for all the other states to come out!!! I'm going to get the WHOLE collection! :) Anyways, their California Lovin stamp set was perfect. You'll see why!

I first took a piece of Kraft cardstock and stamped one of the little heart images over and over with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with gold powder.  I also stamped Golden using the same technique on vellum. I fussy cut around the sentiment. 

I then took a few strips of paper and made my own little banners! On one, I stamped another sentiment and heat embossed it with white embossing powder! After, I adhered it all to the front using a staple and pop up dots! To finish off the card, I added some sequins, of course!! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish Sweet Stamp Shop all the luck in the world wiht their new grand opening! :):)

Little Tangles April Guest Designer

When I was approached by Heather, the Design Team Leader of the Little Tangles Challenge to guest design this month I was so excited!  I just couldn't help but to say yes!!! The challenge this month is focusing on my favorite... SEQUINS! Ahh! My kind of challenge! Here's what I came up with!

To start off, I took a piece of blank cardstock and blended pink at the top and blue at the bottom. I then took a few different colors and stamped the sequin images from Crafting is my Jam.  On a separate piece, I stamped the sentiment and fussy cut around the image. I adhered it with foam dots and then stamped the second part of the sentiment in black ink. I then die cut a frame from a piece of scrap Dotted Swiss paper from Bazzill and adhered it as well with foam dots. To finish off the card, I added different sequins in different colors. 

I love how it turned out! Super fun and colorful! :)  Well thank you so much for stopping by! It's always, always appreciated!
