T.G.I.Tuesday :)
I'm here today to share a cute card I created for my daughter who is moving this Thursday.
This is my design team project for Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons..
I absolutely love the "Home Sweet Home" cutting file and I used the cute cutting files to create this card:

Added lots of layers with foam tape :)

how about a few close ups:
Tucked the tree behind the house and added the sentiment I created to top. 

added some flowers and the grass trim which are both on the "Flower Assortment" cutting file..
and decided to add a "hidden" key, which is the "Heart Lock" cutting file

The clouds I used are on the "Kite and clouds" cutting file
and a few drop of liquid pearls for small details..

and there ya have my Home Sweet Home card..
thank you for stopping by today

You are the cream to my coffee card-SOUS DC reveal

TGIF!! Its been an amazing week this week, been on vacation from my everyday job only to help out my hubby at his garage.. Greeting customers and answering the phones.. I don't know much about cars, but I guess I look like I do :)
I did have some free time to get a little crafting done and decided to create a fun card for our Die Cut challenge over at SOUS.. For today's challenge, we were asked to use any die cut that was either "Food or Beverage!".. Since I love coffee, I decided to put my Cricut good use and blew the dust off of my " Love you a latte!" cartridge :)

Here is what I created:
The coffee cup, heart and scalloped background were all from the "Love you a latte!" cartridge..
The title and punched trim, I created with my Cameo..

For my SWEET friend card- Pretty Cute stamps reveal

I'm so excited to share with you some of the cutest stamps that I've had the privilege of using.. Although I haven't used stamps all that much,  I've always been keen to learn how to create fun cards etc with them and now was my chance :)  I got to work with the new "Just chill" stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps and I had so much fun with them and actually, I had a hard time choosing which ones to use..LOL

Here are what the stamps look like:
pretty sweet right? :)

and here is the card I created using this stamp set:
The card measures 4x6 and I don't own any fancy markers (yet), so I decided to use these fun prints from this cute paper set I've been holding onto and I stamped the image of the Popsicle onto the backside of the printed paper, then cutting them out with scissors.. the only reason why I didn't stamp directly onto the print side is cause I can not cut a straight line to save to my life :) LOL
this way, they look flawless right?..

I also added a sentiment to the inside of the card:

and I can not express how much I love these papers..
Every once in a while we create something we are truly proud of and this card is one of my all time favorites.. 

How about some close ups:

added a punched trim along with twine and ribbon, which is underneath the number trim..
I added the popsicles to the card using foam tape.. I love that 3D look ..

Not sure if you can see in this photo, but I added some glossy accents to the popsicles.. Just another form of texture I wanted to add to this card..  The sentiment is stamped onto the printed paper, then I cut it, inked the edges with distress ink and finally attached it using foam tape.. 
 I love adding layers and texture to my projects :)

for supplies used:

Stamp set by. Pretty Cute Stamps
Papers by: PinkPaislee "Hometown summer!"
StazOn black ink
distress inks: Shabby Shutters, Brushed Corduroy and Worn Lipstick
MS edge punch
foam tape
ribbon and twine
glossy accents
white cardstock
white gel pen

and there ya have it.. A fun card using some "Sweet" stamps :)
Do stop by the new Pretty Cute Stamps store and check out all of the amazingly fun sets Lisa has in her store that she has designed herself..  All of the stamps go perfectly with the cutting files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store.. 
Thank you for stopping by today and taking a look at my first pretty cute project :)
Till next time...
Happy Scrappin

Dreaming of you- PPPR DT reveal

Hi everyone,
I have a fun summer themed card to share with you today that I created as my Design Team project for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons..  I absolute love the ice cream popsicle's in the "Popsicle Fever" cutting file.  I knew I really wanted to create a fun card and then thought of popsicle's floating around in clouds, like you're dreaming of them.. Yeah, my brain works in mysterious ways..LOL

Here is what I created:
The card measures 6x6 and has lots of fun layers using foam tape.

Here are some close ups:

I added the text to the banner (Sentiment Spots 1-cutting file ) using the SIL software, then grouping the font with the file, finally just cutting around the edge.  

I felt the trim around the circle needed a little something, something.  So, I cut a few small flowers and leaves from the Flower Assortment cutting file

I love adding clouds to my projects, they really soften them up.. these clouds can be found in the

Side view of the ice cream pops.. they are all in the "Popsicle Fever" cutting file..

and there ya have my cute ice cream popsicle card..
It was so much fun to put together and I inked/chalked the edges of the die cuts, just to give them a little more dimension and to have them literally pop off the page..

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by today and check out my DT project..
till next time..
