Coconut Drink Card

Happy Monday!  It is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  My boys got out of school for summer vacation last week.  Let me tell you, it is great times for them and I am also thankful to not have to get up so early to get them ready for school.  So, my card for today is a summer vacation themed card :)
 I used the coconut card file from SVG Attic's JGW Tropical Haven set and used papers from DCWV's Watercolor and Neutrals Cardstock stacks to create it.
 The coconut drink is popped up with scotch foam tape for extra dimension and I simply had to add the little flowers as a finishing touch.
Are your kids out of school yet?  What are your summer plans?

This card also fits well with the DCWV Mood Board Challenge for May.  Head on over to their Facebook page to check it out!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

I Love You To The Moon And Back

I have always thought that this saying was so sweet and I was so excited to see it in die form from Gina Marie Designs (To The Moon Die Plate).  This is the card I created with it.
That background started as a white piece of cardstock!  I doctored it up with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks, starting with Mustard Seed in the center of the top and going around that color with Wild Honey.  I filled the rest of the paper with Salty Ocean and finished off with Black Soot around the outside edges.
 Then I sprinkled some water on the paper and dabbed it off with a paper towel and then splattered watered down white acrylic paint on the paper as well.  I used the heat gun on it to dry it and also to set the distress inks so they wouldn't smear.
 Then I positioned the GMD To The Moon Die Plate where I wanted it and cut it out of the paper.  I then centered the saying with a GMD Stitched Rectangle die and ran that through my Big Shot as well.
 The whole purpose of the yellow area on the background was to look like the illumination of the moon.  So I used my Silhouette Cameo and cut out a moon, which a used clear glitter Wink of Stella on and tied some Totally White Trendy Twine around the card.  The front panel and the moon are both popped up with Scotch foam tape.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Thankful For You Card

Hello everyone! Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  I have had SO much fun using the spotlight of Pink Midnight Trendy Twine this month.
This card matches the Tin-Tie bag that I shared on Mother's Day.  Once again, I used papers from DCWV's Meet Me In Paris stack because they are a perfect match with the Trendy Twine.  I used GMD Stitched Rectangle Dies and an unbranded doily die that I cut in half.  I wrapped the Pink Midnight Trendy Twine around the doily and tied it in a bow.
The sentiment is from a Heidi Swapp stamp and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I loved the layout and elegance of this card so much that I had to make two!

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
