TGIF!!!
Just veggin' out here on the laptop and sharing some cards with you...
I haven't made a Christmas card since last December.  So I thought I should get a head start and am playing along with Merry Monday Christmas Challenge...

Not your typical wreath...but I used Papertrey Ink's Spruce & Sprigs Stamp Set and a whole lotta inks!!! Color Box green and fresh green, Hero Arts cup o' joe and field greens, Mommy Lhey it's red, and WPlus9 cranberry crush. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, boy do they retire their sets quickly! I used black ink from memento. 
I used Spellinders dies to cut the center circle panels. The gold sequins are from Lucy's Shop.
I am also adding this to HLS April Christmas Challenge...no embossing

and Just Add Ink...metallics and circles

April 16: Paper Sweeties April 2017 New Release Rewind!

Hello again!
Today is the last day of the Paper Sweeties April Release!

Here are the newest sets...




I wanted to create a simple but elegant card for a special couple getting married...I know they will love this!!!
I kept the white base and used a scor bug to emboss some faux stitches. Than I stampsed the sentiment from Love You to Pieces with black ink from Memento.
I die cut the Scalloped Square Frame than cut it in half and adhered it the base.  I added some white satin ribbon, twine, wood veneer leaf and pink flowers from Michaels. Than I scattered some gold sequins you can find in the Sweeties Shop!!!

For this card I am giving you a sneak peek at the scallope circle die but you'll have to wait on their release!!!
I paired up the Love You to Pieces sentiment with balloons from Happy Cake Day stamp set. I stamped them both with Memento black ink and colored with Copic Markers in shades Y11, Y13, Y15, R20, and R22.  I used pattern papers from My Mind's Eye and added some color with the same Copics. The sequins can be found in the Sweeties Shop. I added some highlights to the balloons with a gel pen.
