3D Tuesday - LOVE Door Hanger

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is 3-D Tuesday.  That means today I have a fun little 3-D project to share with you.  I created this project while I was up in Mesa a couple weekend ago attending a class at a local scrapbook store.  I'm just crazy about the way this project turned out and want to share that project with you now......
This 'LOVE' door hanger looks PERFECT on my studio door.
Each heart is covered with decorative paper and some pretty Valentine's embellishments.
It has so much texture and dimension.....
That it just SCREAMS ....... TOUCH ME!
It's light weight and will fold up to a very manageable size for easy storing until next year.
It was a fun class to attend and the instructor walked us through putting this project together in no time flat.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Wine Down Wednesday card creation with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Mix-It-UP! Monday Card

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Mix It UP! Monday and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ....... but added a couple additional products to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spot Light Sunday Card on the LEFT........
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday Card on the RIGHT......
For today's card I changed up the orientation of my card.....
And added some 'Layering Circle Framelits' for the tee shirt to sit on.
I also added a Melon Mambo bow to the top of my card......
And embossed my 'hope' sentiment at the bottom of my card.
I have to say that both of these cards are winners in my book ........ and I am so proud to support Breast Cancer Awareness.

Spot Light Sunday Card

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the new 2017 Occasions Catalog.  This card uses several new products from that catalog ...... So let me jump right in with my card share for today.........
Being an employee at Hospice for many years ....... I find that some of the most special ladies I have ever met were those who fought the battle of breast cancer.  I dedicate today's card to all those strong and brave ladies.
I began this card by using my Simply Score Board to create an embossed border around my Melon Mambo cardstock panel.
Next I stamped this very powerful message on my Melon Mambo panel with the help of the 'Watercolor Words' stamp set.
And this universal t-shirt and ribbon were created with the new 'Custom Tee' stamp set.
A very special card ....... That I dedicate to all those fighting this disease. 
NEVER GIVE UP 'HOPE'.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share an upgraded version of this very card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Tag Thursday - Hey Chick

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Tag Thursday.  Today, I will feature a tag I created and show you how easy it is to use minimal supplies to create a SUPER FUN TAG.  Now that you have the details for this weeks Tag Thursday ....... Let's jump right in with my tag share for today.
How cute is this tag!!!!!
I started this tag off by adhering a panel of 'Falling in Love' Designer Series Paper to the bottom of my Sweet Sugarplum tag.  And I used the 'Happy Celebration' set to stamp my "Good Times!" sentiment.
My ADORABLE chick was stamped using the FREE Sale-a-Bration 'Hey Chick' set.
All it took was a few quick dabs of my Stampin' Write Markers and my chick was all colored in.
I topped my tag off with some Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon and also added a strand of 'Gold Sequins' to my tag.
One special little nugget that I added to my tag ........ And one that I think puts this tag OVER THE TOP ...... Was one of the Very Vanilla/Gold labels from the 'Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment Kit.

Mix-It-UP! Monday Love Card

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Mix It UP! Monday and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ....... but I added a couple additional product found in the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spot Light Sunday card on the LEFT......
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the RIGHT......
For today's Mix-It-UP! Monday card ........
I used the same layout as I did for my Spot Light Sunday card.
What I did upgrade was the Real Red panel ........
And that was embossed with the 'Large Polka Dot' folder.
I used the same 'Sending Love Designer Series Paper' for my banner.....
But I upgraded the center panel with some 'Silver Glimmer Paper'.....
And I used Clear Embossing Powder on my sentiment.
I also added some 1/8" Silver Ribbon across the top of my DSP banner.
I love how the simple upgrades really changed the look of this already darling card.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday creation with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
