Hope Your Day Sparkles

Hi, and Happy Thursday!

Today, I would like to share with you a wedding card I made using the super cute PPPR "Dress Up Girl Wedding Dress" Cutting Files and PPPR "Dress Up Girls" 1 Cutting Files. Just incase you didn't know Lisa also now has her very own line of stamps, and that's where I got the sentiment from. It's from the "Little Eagle" stamp set. You can check out the store HERE and the blog HERE. I had so much fun putting this card together and I love the way it came out. I used clear embossing on the sentiment along with Memento Rose Bud ink. iRock for earrings and Star Dust Stickles on her dress and tiara.  
What I used:
Memento Rose Bud ink
clear embossing
Star Dust Stickles
Before I go I just want to remind you about the awesome sale going on now.

We also have a Vacation challenge that is going on now. You can link up your project HERE.

The sentiment is from Pink By Design " Ticket to Ride" stamp set and I just had to add a Mickey head somewhere on the card.

Hi, and Happy Thursday!

Today, I would like to share with you two Graduation cards I made for my DT post over at Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon. The base of both cards will fit into a regular size letter envelop.
For the first project I made a card using the Hurray Tile in PPPR Graduates Cutting Files. I love the way the shape of the card looks. I used a white gel pen and a black Zig marker for the stitching. For the grey piece of paper I inked the edges with Memento London Fog ink and a little bit of Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used some Yellow Stickles and the sentiment is from Pink By Design "Our Kids" stamp set.   

For my second project I used the HURRAY that was cut out of the first cards, than I cut out the HURRAY again in black and cut by hand the letters I needed.  The Graduation Cap is from PPPR Hats Off Cutting Files and the sentiment is from Pink By Design "Hats Off" stamp set. For the outline of the grey letters I used a VersaMarker pen. I added some Black Diamond Stickles to the exclamation point.
What I used:
Pink By Design "Our Kids" stamp set.   
Pink By Design "Hats Off" stamp set
 Memento London Fog
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
White Gel pen
Zig marker
Yellow Stickles
Black Diamond Stickles
Thank You for stopping by and hope you have a great day.
