Two Hearts ... One Love

It is time for another Design Team Mailbox Smiles challenge over at CardzTV.  Remember all challenges are Anything Goes.  Here is what I made for this challenge.


For my card I started with white card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I used the second to the largest Stitched Oval Memory Box die to cut my oval. Using a Balzer Design, Heart and Swirls stencil and some Moonstone Nuvo glimmer paste, I added some glitter to my oval die cut and allowed it to dry.  I then die cut the bride and groom out of black card stock.

I used the My Favorite Things Oval Window Die-Namics die to cut out my sentiment which was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the CardzTV  Be My Valentine stamp set.

Now it is your turn. Be sure to enter the challenge with you Anything Goes project for a chance to win a set of Stamps from CardzTV.

Happy Father's Day

It is time for another Mailbox Smiles challenge over at Cardz TV.  Here is what I made for the Anything Goes challenge.

I started with some Kraft card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  Next I used the second to the biggest die from the Stitched Rectangle die set by Memory Box and cut a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock down for my mat.  I used some Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink to create my background.  I then die cut the Tall Grassy stems left  corner die from Memory Box out of some green card stock and adhered it to my card.  Next I cut a small dragonfly from the Impressions Obsessions Dragonfly Die set and added it to the card to finish the image off.

My sentiment is from the CardzTV You're the Man stamp set and is stamped in some Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

Now it is your turn.  Make any project and enter it into the challenge.  Looking forward to seeing you there.

Have a Great Day!

It is time for another Anything Goes challenge for the Mailbox Smiles CardzTV Design Team.  Here is what I made for this challenge.
My husband and I were just at the beach last weekend for our anniversary and he told me how relaxed he felt at the beach, so naturally I wanted to make a beach themed birthday card for him as his birthday is next week.

I found these tropical sunglasses in the Silhouette store and thought they would be perfect for his card. I  cut the glasses at  2.75" high which made them a little over 3.667" wide.  My patterned papers are from Bo Bunny.  My sentiment is stamped with some Versafine Onyx Black ink and is from the Simply Said stamp set.

Now it is your turn. Hope on over to the CardzTV blog and link up your anything goes project.

Hey Good Lookin'

It is time for a new challenge over at CardzTV.  All challenges run for two weeks and are Anything Goes! So be sure to join in the fun.  Here is what I made for this challenge.

I found this Flamingo cut out card in the Silhouette store and thought it was adorable so of course I wanted to make it.  The file makes a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.  It is a quick and easy card to make and the different layers for the flamingo went together quickly. My sentiment is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and is from the CardzTV Stamp set Favorite Phrases.

Now join in the challenge and enjoy the fun and who knows, you just might win something too!  There are two design teams for CardzTV and each design team challenge runs two weeks and there is a new challenge each week . Plenty of time for you to play along.  Now lets see what you make for the Anything Goes challenge.

Hello Spring!

Hi there, Deanna here with another inspirational post for the CadrzTV Gallery.  Here is what I have for you today.

For my card I started with some white card stock that was cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I cut my butterflies using a Memory Box die and some aqua paper. Next I cut a solid oval from another Memory Box die set.  After I adhered the two ovals together, I applied some White Blizzard Nuvo Crystal drops to the cut out areas of the butterflies and then allowed it to dry.  I then adhered it to my card with some foam tape.  My sentiment was stamped from the new Spring Fling Cardz TV stamp set.  To finish the card I added some sequence that I attached with some mini bling glue dots.

Happy Easter

Deanna here with an inspirational post for the Dies R Us inspirational blog.  Today I have an Easter card for you.

My card base was white card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.  I added an aqua mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the pattern paper mat cut at 3 3/4"  X 5".

Next I die cut and embossed my Memory Box Bunny Silhouette die out of some yellow card stock.


Next I cut out my Easter eggs using the Poppystamps Easter Egg Party die set.

I chose to use the two smaller eggs for my card.  I cut them from white card stock and painted them with some Nuvo Mousse.

The Nuvo Mousse is water soluble. To paint with it I put a small amount of the colors I wanted to use on an acrylic block and spritzed them with water.  I then used a small paint brush to paint my eggs and let them dry.

The last thing I die cut was the Happy Easter sentiment using the Memory Box Perky Script Happy Easter die.

Finally I was ready to assemble my card.  I adhered all the mats onto my card base. I then adhered the bunny image with some foam tape.  Next, I tucked the Easter eggs into each side of the bush with the bunny and finally added my Happy Easter sentiment and the card was done.
Dies used in this project were:
