Sending Hugs

Hello!  Today I have a card to share using my favorite die from the latest Frantic Stamper release, Vacation at the Beach.

Jen Carter Daisy Hugs 2

I love these new Stitched Daisy dies!  There are 2 of them in the set and the one that I used cuts and stitches directly into your cardstock.  For this card, I chose to paper piece the petals and center back in but it looks really neat leaving those pieces out too!  I used white glitter cardstock for the petals in the top daisy (it was hard to capture on camera).  For the other two daisies I just used regular white cardstock.

I paired these new dies with a previously released sentiment die set called Accessory Words #3 that has lots of mix & match word dies to create custom sentiments with.

I am adding this to ther Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to add shimmer!  I added my shimmer in the top daisy using white glitter cardstock.

Thanks for visiting today!  Have a great one!

Summer 2016 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Today I am joining in on the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I do enjoy a good cup of (very flavored!) coffee!  Yum!

For my card I went with summery colors but with a twist toward a masculine theme.

I started by die cutting my tag which is Lil' Inker Designs Dotted Tags.  I just love this tag set!  The details that those dots add, so pretty! I then die cut the coffee cup, lid & cozy with the Coffee Cozy Die set

 I love that the coffee cozy stitches on the top & bottom!  It's all in the details!  The sentiment is from the Lil' Inker Design's Coffee Cozy Stamp Set.

Foiled Seashell

Jen Carter Scallop Shell Foiled 1

For today's card I went with a sea theme!  I die cut the seagulls with a die from Frantic Stamper called Flying Gulls.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  This paper was perfect for the background and came from the Summer Party Paper Pad from Echo Park.

To create the Scalloped Seashell I used a new technique (to me).  I used some Heidi Swapp Reactive Mist Spray after I die cut the shell and then ran it through my Minc machine.  LOVE!!  I really like the look it gave the seashell!  I attached it with dimensionals.

I'm entering this card in the CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge #176 based on the sketch below.

I'm also sharing this at Word Art Wednesday for Anything Goes!

A Sunflower Wreath

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone is doing well and had a nice weekend!  It's starting to heat up here in Kansas and the farmers are all heading out to the fields to harvest the wheat.  I LOVE the wheat fields right now.  They are all so golden and when the wind blows (which is about always lately!) it just ripples through the wheat and creates the most beautiful scene!  

Another thing I love about Kansas are the sunflowers!  Tomorrow my hubby and I celebrate 19 years of marriage and in our wedding we had sunflowers.  They were so big and beautiful!  How is it possible that that was already 19 years ago?  Wow!  Time flies!  So in honor of that special day, I put together this card.

Jen Carter Fall Welcome Wreath 11 wm

I used Lil' Inker Designs new Warm Welcome Stamps and the coordinating Warm Welcome Die Set.  I first stamped the wreath off of the side of the card and then stamped some of the greenery directly on the wreath.  I then attached the die cuts.

I stamped the "Thank You" using the Mirror, Mirror Stamp Set onto the banner from the Warm Welcome Die Set.  The little chevron bow is die cut with the Bunnies & Bows Dies.

I am entering this in the Cupcakes Inspirations #364 Challenge based on this photo (I did throw in a little red for some contrast in the wreath).

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
