I took the Prima flowers from my DT kit and layered them together adding an orange flower bradf to the centers and adhering them in the lower left corner. For the top right corner I put another flower behind a KI memories softies flower also from my kit. For my sentiment I heat embossed it with Recollections "Party Pink" embossing powder onto the patterned paper and trimmed it into a flag. The sentiment is also from the MSS "Aloha" set.

For the inside I again kept it clean & simple

I continued the patterned papers then used some PTI yellow cardstock and stamped a sentiment from PTI "Hello Sunshine" in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Then stamped, colored & fussy cut the tables, napkins, food, small music notes & mini jukebox from the Sock Hop set, adding glossy accents to any "metal" pieces. The record is 2 stamps from Paper Smooches "Beboppin" that I then white heat embossed the sentiment from Sock Hop onto. I added some colorful music notes from Sticko"Music Notes" .

DT Cards For Hot Rods Boutique

Hey everyone today I have 2 cards I did for the Hot Rods Boutique a wonderful etsy shop owned by Brittany H.

For my first card I did a shopping scene. I think I had back to school shopping on the brain LOL. I used Whimsy Stamps Kenny K "Madison Attitude" on a 5 1/2x 5 1/2 base from PTI Black cardstock.
I used patterned paper from Crate Paper "The Pier" for the background, ground & paper piecing. Next I die cut the door from blue Bazzill cardstock with Cottagecutz "Classic Ornate Door". The shelves are from brown Bazzill cardstock. The purse & shoe stamps are from Paper smooches "Retail Therapy" & "Pretty Momma". I also added some Recollections Purse embellishment & charms from my stash. The boot & hat boxes stickers are Colorbok "Foil Paris Fashion". I stamped my sentiment in Colorbox "Chestnut Roan" from SSS "Like Your Style" stamp set. Lastly I used a Studio Calico "Speech Bubble Veneer" inked it first with Prima "black Coal Chalk" then dabbed Versamagic "Cloud White Chalk".

The inside is kept fairly simple

I layered my patterned papers then stamped another sentiment & the hanger from SSS set. The purse & shoes are extras I had from the front of the card by Paper Smooches. The copic colors for the image will be at the bottom of this post.

For my second card I kept it simple but pretty.I used Whimsy Stamps "Sailorbays Sandcastle" image colored with my Prismacolor Pencils on a 5x 5 1/2 cardbase from Stampin Up "Gumball Green" cardstock

My patterned papers are from Crate Paper "Party Day". I used a Martha Stewart border punch on 2 pieces and layered them. Next I diecut my image with Spellbinders "Labels 8" then traced the outside of the same die onto Gumball Green cardstock to make a mat as the next size up die was far too big. I stamped Amy R "Beach Sentiments" onto patterned paper and heat embossed it with Zing "Metallic Green" powder then punched it with McGill "Vintage Label" punch. Lastly I added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts & Recollections.

For the inside again clean & simple

I just layered patterned papers then stamped another Amy R sentiment in SU "Gumball Green" ink. I stamped another Amy R sentiment on another pc of patt paper then punched it out with the McGill Vintage Label punch and adhered it at an angle. Easy Peasy

I then used patterned papers from Basic Grey "Soleil" for the card & the paper piecing on her swim suit & towel. First I made my card base & added patt paper. Then I copic colored my image adhered it to patterned paper. I used foam adhesive strips all around then added some ArtC orange seed beads & orange flower sequins from my stash. I cut a square of acetate from some stamp packaging then made a frame from patterned paper using Spellbinders A2 Matting basics die. Then just adhered entire thing to card base. The summer banner is from Pink Paislee "Hometown Summer" onto patt. paper. Lastly I added a few MME Enamel dots. Fun & cute!

Traveling Marci

Hey everyone today I would like to share a tag i made for Sybils traveling Marci challenge last week. Her clue was that Marci was going on a "grand" adventure so I made a tag of Marci at the Grand Prix as the flag girl. I used Lalaland Crafts "Cheerleader Marci" on a Heidi Swapp Color resist tag.

I sprayed half the tag with Mister hueys "Overdue" and the other half with Heidi Swapp Colorshine in "Black Velvet". I put a strip of Recollections halloween striped glitter taoe at the bottom. The road & stop light stamps are from Paper Smooches "metropolis" & the car is from Hero Arts/Basic Grey "Bam". I cut out the banner with Paper Smooches "Streamers" die then used Pebbles mini alpha stickers to spell out Grand Prix.
For the flag I used MME Miss Caroline Dilly Dally Paper with a paper Studio Flag punch & wrapped it around a toothpick.. I didnt have ribbon that I liked for the tag so I trimmed a napkin I got at Marshalls put it through the hole and stapled it together with my tiny attacher.

Cheerleader Marci Copic Colors:
Socks-N4,6,8,10 (Black spica glitter pen)
Top-Paper pieced with MME Meadowlark paper
also used glossy accents, diamond stickles, black spica pen & ladybug red memento marker

I hopt you like it this was fun to make cus its different from the super girly stuff I do a lot. XOXO
