Top Dog Dies Guest Designer

I am so excited to be guest designing for Top Dog Dies today!  This is my first time using Top Dog Dies and I gotta say I really LOVE them.  I have three cards to share with you today, my first card uses the Hot Air Balloon Die Set.


When I first saw this set I wanted to create a sky background with a paper pieced Hot Air Balloon.  I found a cloud vellum panel that was perfect for my sky!  I die cut the hot air balloon from different pattern papers and fussy cut them at the seam to create a multi colored balloon.  Here is a close up.


Next up I have a fun quick and easy Dino card using the Dinosaur Trio Die Set.  I die cut the Dino from my card panel and backed it with some pattern paper.  Quick, easy and the perfect card to give to my youngest son to let him know how amazing he is!


The last card I have for you today used the Butterfly Mosaic Die.  I really love this die.


I die cut the panel using white cardstock and adhered that to my card base.  I then die cut the panel again using polka dot vellum and cut apart all of those butterflies and adhered them to the card base.  I added some glitter to the centers for a finishing touch.  I absolutely love the dimension you get with the vellum layering.


I hope you enjoyed the cards I shared today.  I want to thank Top Dog Dies for having me as their guest.  Have a great day!

A few cards...

So Ellen Hutson has started doing challenges!  I am going to play along with the first one Essential by Ellen Mix it up Challenge.  This one says to use Essentials by Ellen products as well as hero arts.

I used the Bokeh dots stamp set by Ellen and the sentiment comes from Hero Arts.  I also dropped a little gold color shine on the card.

Next up I also played with some of my PaperSmooches stamps and dies to enter into the April Guest Designer Search.

I really love how this card turned out.

That's all for today!

Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenges

So Papertrey Ink is Celebrating 8 years!!  This is a company that I really love.  They offer excellent quality product and fun, trendy and timeless designs.  So I had a little time to make a few things this weekend for some of these challenges as well as a Birthday card for my son who is turning 16 tomorrow.   Sixteen!  I am having a hard time believing I have a 16 year old, lol. 
Instead of doing three separate posts I am putting them all in one.  First up is todays Challenge of use something that has not seen ink or been used nearly enough.
All three of these stamps sets I love and I have never even used the balloon image from that set.
Up next is the tag challenge.
And last but not least the sketch and color combo challenge.  I will be honest this is not my favorite card (I make a lot of these, Lol)  but I spent time making it so I am going to enter it anyway.
Well that's all for today.  Hopefully I will be back with a future challenge!
