Mixing Paper Pads!

Mixing Paper Pads! 0

Hi everyone,
Nicole here today to share a project with you. I picked up the Around the Park 12x12 Mat Stack to document some vacation photos to the mouse's house... but when I opened it up, I found some pretty b-side papers that are perfect for girly page!
It is almost hard to believe that these papers came from a Disney themed paper pad right! The pretty floral paper in the Around the Park mat stack has lots of colors in it, so I was able to mix in some papers from the Heart Throb paper pad as well as the Picture Perfect paper pads too. 
I added in lots of fun  Queen and Co. embellishment to the floral elements on my page too - some Sparklers, Sunflowers and even some Petite Posies, along with some dots from the Heart Throb kit.
Supplies:
Heart Throb paper pad

Hey everyone!
It's Greta with you today. We are well into summer here so I thought I would put together one of my favorite summer color combos for my cards. For my first card, I featured one of summers favorite sweet treats, ice cream cones.
I used the ice cream cone die cut to make a triple dip, set on a white background. To dress it up, I added epoxy dots and twine. 
 
For this second card, I used the same color combo to create a serene beach scene. 



By layering kraft cardstock for sand, and two different colors of blue for water and sky, the background is complete.


I used the umbrella shaker and die cut in orange and yellow, to make my beach umbrella, embellished with a Pom flower. A sun die cut with bling and a stamped sentiment finishes off this fun beach card!

Supplies Used:  Shaped Shaker Spring, Sprinkles Toppings, Orange Pom Pom Flower, Yellow Posies
 
Happy summer and Thanks for stopping by!

Different Ways to Use Toppings!

Different Ways to Use Toppings! 0

Hi there! 
Laurie Schmidlin here and I've got a couple of cards featuring different ways to use Queen & Co's Toppings!

One of my favorite things when creating, is to add special little details.  They just seem to give cards that little something extra!  Queen & Co's Toppings and smaller flowers are the perfect embellishments for this!

For my first card, I created a heart shaker using items from the Heart Throb Kit.  I filled the heart with blue and green Tiny Bubbles (from the Tiny Bubbles Toppings Set).  The patterned paper on the heart shaker is from the Simple Stripes 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  For embellishment, I adhered little blue stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings Set.

 

Supplies
Heart Throb Kit
Simple Stripes 6 x 6 Paper Pad

For my next card, I used some Sunflowers and Posies to add color embellishments to my jungle themed card.  I started by die cutting the Foam Front Die - Window (one of my favorite card front dies) and added it to a piece of patterned paper from the Pretty Presents 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  I tucked in stamped and die cut images and then added a few yellow posies (from the Baby Bling Book -Posies) and Orange Sunflowers.

Let's Celebrate with Butterflies - Shaker Cards

Let's Celebrate with Butterflies - Shaker Cards 0

Hello!
Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards created with my favorite shaker kits from Queen & Co.
 
 
The Candles Shaker Kit is a versatile set, easily tailored to a male or female recipient by simply changing the shaker toppings and any other embellishments. I made a super-girly card using pink hearts from Fimo Fun, Pops, Posies and Pastel Diamonds.
 
 
To create the mat beneath the blank card front, I cut a piece of patterned paper from Heart Throb Mat Stack to 5 ½” x 4 ¼”. I measured and marked a ½” border on each side then used a craft knife to remove the inside rectangle before adhering over the acetate. Before adhering the blank card front, I removed 1/8” from each side then adhered over the acetate and patterned frame, carefully aligning the candle openings.
 
On top of my card front, I adhered a few Pom Poms, flower-shaped sequins and a sentiment by Paper Smooches.
 
 
 
My second card uses my favorite butterfly from Shaped Shaker Butterflies and Heart Throb Mat Stack.
 
 
After filling the shaker shape with pink Donuts and Pastel Diamonds, I adhered the acetate then used the coordinating die (also included in the kit) to die-cut a dotted cover. For a bit of variety, I adhered a second die-cut butterfly, a few pink Rivets and a die-cut sentiment from Taylored Expressions. I love that dies are included with the butterfly foam shapes as they can be used with the shaker pieces or without.
