Capturing Smiles!

Capturing Smiles! 0

Hi Everyone --

Susan Weinroth here with you today to share a couple of cards that I whipped up with favorite Queen & Co. product.



"You Captured My Heart" is the first card that I created -- I love the ease of the foam front circle card and coordinating die.

)

I used lots of pink to create a monotone card and shakerbox with a simple multi-heart punch background.



For my second card -- "You Make Me Smile" -- I was able to use my very favorite camera die (fron the Picture Perfect Kit).



The camera die cut shape coordinates well with the "smile" sentiment!



Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at what I've been up to!

Happy 4th of July! 

Today we are having our own explosion of fireworks here on the blog.  Loads of inspiration and a chance to win one of our awesome Trunks filled with all kinds of goodies. To be eligible for the grand prize (see below), leave a comment on this post.  For an addition entry, PIN the above collage image to Pinterest.  Drawing will be held July 5th.

One more thing!!!  Every order between now and the 4th will receive a random assortment from the fun Red, White and Blue grouping below.  


So, lets start with some incredible inspiration, shall we?  
Amy Sheffer has created a couple cards for us to celebrate this big day!

Stars & Stripes Forever

That American flag shaker element is actually the cake from the Birthday Shaped Shaker set! 
 
 
She trimmed down a white cake die-cut to a rectangle, filled the foam shaker with Red Diamond Toppings, and then added a small square covered in Blue Star Washi Tape. Then added a lollipop stick for the flag pole and topped it with some blue striped twine. 
 
Tip: The star sequins are more turquoise in color. To change them to a deep, royal blue, I colored over them with a dark blue Copic marker.
Home of the Free Because of the Brave
 
Amy created a fireworks display using a combination of stamped starburst images and red, white, and blue Pinwheels and Petite Posies. 
 
 
Susan Weinroth also played along with our Red White and blue theme with a stunning layout. She used her favorite photo from last year's celebration.  Her beach club puts up tons and tons of flags every 4th, and it's one of her very favorite annual photos of her boys -- She loves to take a shot of them in front of what they call "the giant flag"!!!


Instead of creating a shaker box with the Pop Up Stars, She simply layered them and added bubbles and rhinestone stars and stripes of Glitter Washi.

Supplies: Cardstock, Pop Up Dies - 4 Stars, Lines Glitter Tape Blue, Lines Glitter Tape Silver, Bubbles Clear

Megan Hoeppner has some fabulous fun cards to share as well!
In the US, July  means fireworks and bonfires and parades and BINGO at the town armory. It also means it's her sister-in-law’s birthday. She’s a yankee doodle dandy, born on the Fourth of July. A fireworks card seems in order.
 

She used various Queen toppings and liquid dimensional adhesive to create fireworks. 
 

It wouldn’t be a Fourth-themed post without a little red, white, and blue. 
She took the same taped approach here.  Whether you’re thanking a soldier, their family for their service or a party hostess this fourth, these cards are a quick solution to try. Hooray for washi. It’s the supply that stretches and makes crafting easy. Have fun!
 
Supplies Used: Glitter Washi Tape, Diamond Toppings, Sprinkle Toppings, Bitty Bead Toppings, Orange Epoxy Dots, Green Epoxy Dots, Pink Epoxy Dots

Don't forget to comment below for a chance at the Trunk grand prize, and PIN the collage photo (at the very top of the post) for an additional entry.

May your weekend be filled with family, friends, and crafty time!

Clean up your stash - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit 0

Hello everyone!
Susan here with you again today to share a couple of cards that I made with the Pretty Presents kit.  I love "cleaning up" my scrap area by creating cards.  These two were no exception.

"Hip Hip Hooray" was the first card that I created.  The stamp set included in the kit makes card making a breeze -- so many sentiments to choose from!



I love to stamp my sentiment greetings onto scrap paper and turn them into little tags, adhering just one side and lifting/curling up the free side.  I did this here, and adhered it under my present shaker box.



The second card that I created was my "To you from me" card.  I used the present dies to cut and create a cardstock present that I adhered with foam squares.



A little simple bubbles bling finishes off this card's look.



I hope you have as much fun playing and creating with this kit as I did!

-Susan
