Get your sparkle on… PbD05

This week’s Ink It Pink Challenge is all about SPARKLE

You can use whatever form of sparkle or bling that you choose…. metallic paper, Viva Decor, rhinestones, glitter and the list goes on.

I chose to use Glitter Ritz, my favorite glitter as my sparkle.

I started by stamping , Pink By Design’s Cloudy Day Background stamp in Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink.

I then cut out some clouds in different sizes in white and dark blue, using the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. I then stamped my sentiment with Pink By Design’s Simply Everything.

I pulled out my Martha Stewart Balloon punch and punched a bunch of balloons out of Sookwang Be Creative Tape.

Then punched out matching cardstock to the color of glitter that I chose to use and stuck the tape to the cardstock.

I pulled off the paper backing and glittered away using several different colors of Glitter Ritz and let me tell you…I got glitter everywhere….even on my face.. lol.

Here is a close-up picture of the balloons… I used small punches for the heart and star and attached them Glossy Accents.

I added  some Pink By Design Divine Twine in Black Licorice to tie the balloons together.

For the inside of the card I used the clouds that I cut out earlier and used the Pink By Design October’s Stamp of the Month – Friends to the End in Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid.

You should head over to Pink By Design’s Blog and take a look at what everyone has been up to. Hope your day is full of sparkle and bling.

Red, White and Blue

Pink By Design’s Ink it Pink Challenge (PbD03)

Hello all this week’s Ink it Pink Challenge is Red, White and Blue. So for this challenge I made a Red, White and Blue Tent Topper card.

I watched this great tutorial by Mary at Cardz Tv on making a Tent topper card. I loved the idea and the card just came together. She has tons of great tutorials on all kinds of amazing cards.

So here is the card that I am entering into the challenge.

All the cardstock is Recollections, I took White cardstock and stamped Cars by Hero Arts and then embossed in American Crafts Rouge embossing powder.

I then added some Pink By Design Air Mail Divine Twine and a few buttons.

Both the car on the inside and the one on the front is a stamp called Vroom by Imaginisce.

You still have time to link your crafty project to the Red, White and Blue Challenge here, you should stop by and check it out.

Happy Father’s Day !!!!

Hi there today I wanted to share the card that I made for my Dad for Father’s Day.

He lives in Ontario and we don’t get to see each other very often, but we do keep in touch. I miss him and wish he could be closer. Happy Father’s Day Dad … I love you. Hope you have a great day.

I used  both sides of Reel Me In Dad paper from TPC Studio and some Bazzill cardstock for the base. I love the way that Embossed sentiments look, so I did this one in Stampendous Emerald embossing powder. The sentiment is Best Dad from Stampendous.

I just love these ties, I added dimension with some popdots. I recently won the Memory Box Family Ties Die from entering a card in the Pink Cricut Link Up Tuesday and I’m going to enter this card in the 2nd Ink It Pink Challenge. This week’s Ink it Pink Challenge is a Masculine card or project, so I think that this fits right in.

I used the other part of the Family Ties Die for the inside and the sentiment comes from Studio G.. I think.

To all the great fathers out there…
