Awesomely Artistic Make Over

Here is the promised make over of the Awesomely Artistic card that I posted here. I did not make big changes to the card, I just used some of the newer items like the Metallics Tape and Baker’s Twine! I also used the Wink of Stella on the dragonfly, but that is harder to see! I think the next time I will make a shadow under my dragonfly by stamping him on the card and then putting the cut out above it slightly off center so he stands out more. I may try adding a little color to the wings and making his body black, too. I think he would “pop a little more from the card that way. He seems a little lost! What do you think? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!

Awesomely Artistic Friend

This is a swap card from convention last year. I wish I knew who to give credit to; but it has no identification with it. I am planning on updating this card when I CASE (acronym for copy and share everything) it! I am going to use the new Metallics Tape and see what the new Baker’s Twine looks like! Be sure to check back and see how my little update went! The stamp set used on this card is Awesomely Artistc; one of my personal favorites!

A Happy Hello

I love swaps! They are a wonderful way to get additional ideas, color combos, and cards! This gorgeous swap card was created by fellow demonstrator Nena Shaw. Not only did she use stamps from several of my personal favorites (Awesomely Artistic, Tin of Cards, You’ve Got This), I find her color combo to be calm and peaceful! When I copy this card I think I will throw a little Wink of Stella on the dragonfly to make the wings have just a little bit of shimmer!

What do I Love About Awesomely Artistic?

Is it fair to say that I love everything about this set? I love flora and I have always been fascinated by dragonflies. Couple that with how easy it is to stamp a quick, simple, and pretty card with this set and you have a winner! This pretty swap card was created by fellow demonstrator, Cyndy Ponczek. I love her soft color combo of Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe with the pop of Delightful Dijon. The little bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter draws the eye to the dragonfly flitting in the corner. If you have not yet added this set to your collection now is the time to do it! Sale-a-bration is about half-way done and who doesn’t like getting free things with their order!

Who is not Pedaling? Pedal Pusher Video

This new sale-a-bration set is so fun and cute! It brings back some fun and happy memories for me! When Jim and I went to Alaska we rented a bicycle built for two and peddled the coastal trail in Anchorage. We saw some great sights; including a very pregnant moose. We also spent a lot of time laughing as we accused each other of not doing their fair share of pedaling! Do you have a favorite new sale-a-bration item?

When is Your Birthday?

Isn’t this a beautiful card? It is one of my swap cards but the creator either did not include her information, or it somehow got separated from the card. This card is fancied up just a little more than the one I shared yesterday, but is is still a pretty simple card and it, too, is stamped with the Butterfly Basics stamp set! I think that’s a total of three pretty and mostly basic cards that I have shared using this beautiful stamp set! Today is the last day that you can get the wood mounted version of this set at a great discount with the Weekly Deals! It’s also the last day that Hello, and Sky is the Limit sets will be available to choose as free items for sale-a-bration. The designer series paper might be available a little longer if there is still inventory. I want to get in on a little of the #imbringingbirthdaysback fun so the first 10 people to leave a comment sharing their birthday with me as a sign of their commitment to help bring birthdays back; will get a birthday card from me to help them keep their commitment! This is just a little variation of the theme as I am providing you with the birthday card! Leave your comment and I will contact you for your address when I have your cards ready! Thanks for stopping by!
