Here is the sketch:

So cool, right?! Here are my two cards:

I had so much fun making them! And I am definitely loving my new watercolor paper. The other paper I have is ok, but its thinner and sometimes warps WAY TOO MUCH. Anyhoo,

Hi, there! I’m here today with a couple of cards for this weeks Papertrey Ink Make It Monday technique: White on white die cuts. 🙂

Here is my first card:

43

I was inspired by those hundreds of posters like this on Pinterest. LOL! It was fun to make, though that Q is going to give me nightmares because he just DID NOT want to be straight! LOL.

Here is another card, also using letters…

42

This one was really fun picking the colors and deciding on the placement of the white letters around the sentiment. I popped the word “Smile” up just a bit by putting one layer of white letters underneath the color ones. And then just to add a little bit more (bc obviously I don’t when to stop, LOL) I added some vellum butterflies with a pop of rhinestone in the middles. 🙂

Hope you like them!

Hello there. I’ve been inspired by Virginia’s View Challenge. This month the challenge is Dimension. I’ve been visiting blogs and looking at Pinterest a lot lately (well ALL THE TIME really LOL.) And I think this card is a mash up in my head of a bunch of different cards I’ve seen lately. 😉

So here it is,

40

I used foam tape and foam squares to get two different heights for the dahlias. And I just pushed up the sentiment banner while adhering it down so it would have that lovely bump in the middle like it was being blown by the wind. Instead of using patterned paper for the background, I used die cuts to give it that extra dimension. 😉

Hope you like it! I had a lot of fun making it!

Doesn’t it look space-y to you? LOL! It reminded me of stars and planets and I just got my new PTI goodies in the mail yesterday, so I went to work with them! Everyone’s been using this wonderful ink smooshing technique and that’s exactly what I saw in the dress too! So here is my take,

Well hello there. So I didn’t make it for any more of the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenges, LOL. And last week I had food poisoning so zero crafting got done then as well. But, I’m here this week for Make It Monday! Woo hoo! This week the challenge/technique was to anchor your die focal point with border dies.

Here is my card:

36

So I went a little bonkers on the layers, LOL! I’m not usually a layer person, but I got carried away 😉 Melissa’s card was just so inspiring! The light here is terrible because its overcast today, so you can’t see that on the border dies I used a pearly white swirly textured paper that I found in my stash, but its there 🙂

Hope you like it!

This is just one of the inspiration pics. Pretty gorgeous, huh? 🙂

Here is my take,

I used silver glitter and gold embossing powder. For the layout I was inspired by a Pinterest card, but I’m having problems linking it. If you want to see the original, just look me up on Pinterest (Lauren Anderson) and it’s on my Cards I Heart 5 board. 🙂

Hope you like it! I really had fun making it!

July Blog HopAnd here is my card,

14I just love that little fox 🙂 I was inspired by the flags and the doily in the picture. I was going to use flowers in place of the fox, but when I came across this stamp set I thought the fox was just too adorable so I die cut and water colored the little cutie. 😉

Hope you like it! And hopefully more crafting will be coming soon! 🙂
