Jen Carter Rustic Spring Sweet Celebration 8 wm

I combined several new products to put this card together.  I first die cut the heart wreath with the Sweet Celebration dies.  I wanted a colored background so I die cut it a second time to get the peach cardstock in the center.  The flowers were die cut and then stamped with the Sweet Celebrations Stamp set.   This is my favorite LID flower set yet!  I LOVE all of the options of ways to stamp these flowers and the details are gorgeous!

I die cut the sweet bunny with the Rustic Springs die set and then stamped her with the Rustic Spring stamp set which is a follow up to the popular Rustic Christmas stamp set.    I colored the bunny with my Zig Real Brush markers.  The banner & sentiment are also included in the setsLastly, I die cut the Celebrate Word Die three times and stacked them together for dimension (isn’t the font for that die awesome!).

Jen Carter Cat Treats 4 wm

My second card was such a fun one to put together and these cats are adorable!  I first stamped my background with the BFF & hearts stamps that are in the Cat Treats Stamp Set.  I made sure to center one of the BFF's right above where I planned to place my cats.  I then die cut the cat friends with the Cat Treats Die Set, stamped the coordinating images and colored them with copics.  I adhered them to my card with an action wobbler and then colored in the BFF & hearts to match the cats and highlight the sentiment.  

Below is a video that shows the cats in motion and wobbling.

It's such an easy way to make a card interactive!

PTI Year 2013

I have another card to share for PTI's Anniversary.  This one is celebrating stamps released in 2013.  

Jen Carter City Scape PTI Hello

I loved this City Scene stamp set and was fortunate enough to be able to borrow it from a friend recently to put this card together.  I realized how detailed this set was as I started to stamp.  It was a lot of work but I like how it turned out!  The stitched mat is from this die set from Lil' Inker Designs.

Jen Carter Spiral Bouquet Hugs 1

I have one more card for the PTI Celebration.  This one using the set Spiral Bouquet.  I stamped the flowers on a piece of white cardstock and adhered it to a small panel that I also attached a die cut hugs on from the Big Hugs die set.  The patterned paper is from the Simple Stories Love & Adore paper pack.

Thanks for visiting!

Thank you Berry Much!

Hello! I wanted to play along a little with PTI's 10th Anniversary challenges.  This challenge was to use a set released during PTI's first year in business.  I chose Green Thumb which is the set that made me fall in love with PTI!  I loved all of the separate elements that the set had and how easy it made stamping the different pieces to an image with different colored inks.

Jen Carter Green Thumb Thanks 2

I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color the strawberries on the stamp and then sprayed the stamp with a fine mist of water before stamping on watercolor paper.  The frame is die cut with the A2 Noted die set.  And the cute little frame is from the Tag Sale #10 die.

Thanks for stopping by!

CIC394 Jen Carter Balloon Hugs 1

For my card I started with a patterned paper that is one of my all time favorites! I wish I had a stack of just this one pattern (sadly, this was my last piece)!  I die cut the red balloons from Lil' Inker Designs Love You More Hearts & Balloon Die Set.  I 💖💗 this set!  I also die cut the strings from this set as well.  The Hugs was die cut several times and then glued together.  This die comes from the LID Brush Script Valentines Day Word Dies, which is another new favorite die set!

To finish the card off and to add that little pop like you see on top of the cupcakes, I used little white matte finished enamel dots.  

Here is the challenge color scheme.  You can use the photo for inspiration but you don't have to, as long as you use the provided color scheme. I hope you'll join us this week for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #394!  Thanks for stopping by!
