For the Love of Dawn by Digi Doodle Studios

I have had the polka dot ribbon I used for some time
and thought a bow would work well on whatever my
finished design might be. So I colored the image using
the colors from the ribbon and fussy cut.
I cut my card base with a Lifestyle Crafts Scallop Circle die.
The image is popped on to a matted circle die cut.
I punched some flowers and a butterfly.
The bow finishes the design.

Cute As A Button Inspiration

Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing a little inspiration on the

I love making pop up box cards
and think this sweet fairy is perfect for one!

I started by coloring the image with Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils.

Next I fussy cut the image, pulled out some designer papers from Colorbok
and scored a piece of solid card stock for the box.

I assembled the box and applied the designer papers to the panels.
The image was attached to the center of the box.

I added some layered daisy stickers, greenery die cuts

and punched butterflies.

I stamped the sentiment and die cut with a tag die to complete the design.

Thanks for taking a look and until next time

Happy Crafting!

To Have & To Hold

Hey everyone!
How's your Thursday going?
It's been really cold this week
here in Colorado and I'm sitting here
watching the snow come down.

But, I'm not writing this post to discuss the weather.
I saw that All Dressed Up  is having a Design Team Call
and thought I would throw my hat in and apply.

I love All Dressed Up images and created a card
using one of my favorites,

I decided to create a twisted easel card
and started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base.
I cut the image, which I colored with pencils, with a circle die.
The image piece was matted and layered over a paper doily
and a scalloped circle die cut.
I added some die cut corner pieces to the front.
Inside, I added a ribbon threading die cut and a die cut sentiment.
I added a little glitter glue to the bride, a bow and 
white flowers to complete the design.

Thanks so much for taking a look at my project
and until next time
Happy Crafting!

MHKDesigns Valentine Roses

Hello all!
Today is my day to share a little designer inspiration on the
using this month's New Release Set

This is a beautiful set that, like most of the products
available in the  MHKDesings Etsy Shop,
can be used for a multitude of occasions.

My card is a simple design but, I think, effective.

I colored the image with alcohol markers and fussy cut.
The sentiment was printed on the white card stock
before I did the embossing. This way I could have it
placed right where I wanted it! I then matted the
panel with the sentiment and embossing with black card stock.
To finish, I popped the fussy cut image with foam tape on the matted panel.

I hope I've provided you just a little bit of inspiration today!
If you would like a chance to win this set check out
this month's challenge for details and join in for more
chances to win MHKDesigns products!
