Adorable Valentine's Day Cards

 Love is in the air, and in my cards. Here are a few of my favorite Valentine's cards I made this year! 
These cards incorporate some of my favorite stamp and die companies. Including Lawn Fawn, CottageCutz, Impression Obsession, Memory Box, Penny Black and Heartfelt Creations

The cat and dog cards were colored with Prisma colored pencils and the swan card was completely watercolored with Windsor and Newton paints. There's a variety of textured papers including glitter, embossed and colored card-stock. 

Whenever possible I try to combine elements from different companies to come up with my own unique design. This also allows me to reuse my favorite stamps and dies and create many different designs showcasing the versatility of the products.

Winter Wonderland Cards

Hello, I am finally back to talk about some of my most popular Christmas cards of the 2017 Winter season. The various outdoor snowy scene cards were favored by all my followers on Etsy and Facebook. They have received numerous re-pins on Pinterest. Take a look below at some of my favorites! These cards were a compilation of stamps and dies from many stamping companies including some of my favorites like, Tattered lace, Memory Box, Poppy dies, CottageCutz, and Cheery Lynn.

Snowmen anyone?

What is not to love about adorable snowman and pretty winter scenes? I love all snowman. Today, I am sharing some cute whimsical snowman. These little guys were hand stamped and alcohol inked with Copic markers, one of my favorite pastimes and the big screen snowman was hand assembled. These images are courtesy of Cottagecutz and Art Impressions. Some of the pretty snowflakes are by Sue Wilson, a beautiful die designer from England. There are some lawn fawn and Memory Box did elements in these cards as well. The sleigh is also a super adorable die by Memory Box. I love to combine elements from different stamp and die companies to create a truly unique little card. Comment below or send questions my way, if you like information on how to build these cute cards 😏

My favorite Christmas cards

I am sharing beautiful Christmas cards, that are three dimensional and intricate. I love to use many different stamps and dies by different brands and designers to really diversify the overall results. As you all know, I am a total addict and my craft room is starting to get really overcrowded.
Check out these super cute cards below. The blue and silver flat card uses several designerdies by Tattered Lace, Sur Wilson and that gorgeous flat bow is a two layer die by Cottagecutz. The silver embossed leaves are by Heartfelt Creations.

The little box card below was one of my favorites last Christmas - it utilizes primarily CottageCutz Dies, including Santa’s Workshop and the little girl and boy deers. The trees in the background are by Memory Box.

Butterfly Pop Up Box

Hello there... me again. I have been busy in the craftroom, creating some beautiful things. With Spring finally here, I have been focusing on beautiful spring cards with butterflies. This here is a new 5 x 7 birthday pop up box card, filled with beautiful butterflies. These butterflies were handstamped and then die cut using the beautiful Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley collection. These stamps and dies are gorgeous and allow you to stamp and die cut many different butterflies all in one pass of the die cutting machine. It was fun to color these butterflies with my Copic markers. The butterflies were embossed using a metallic embossing powder by "Sprinkle & Sparkle". This created a dimensional outline. Which helps create a barrier for your alcohol markers. I also embellished some of the butterflies with some craft rhinestones. The box is mainly pink with some other pastels, fitting for Spring.

As always, I would like to invite you to check out  My Etsy Shop for some additional inspiration. I am excited to enter the Simon Says Stamp Blog Monday Challenge - things with wings
 Feel free to leave me a comment. Have fun creating. Until next time, Sabrina

Intricate Square Flower Card

Good evening everyone, I hope you are doing well. Today I wanted to share a beautiful card with you, which uses some very intricate border frames. This card is a traditional 5.5 by 5.5 inch card. The intricate frame/ border Die is by Sue Wilson and looks stunning. Her dies are so intricate and just gorgeous. These dies release beautifully from the paper. The pretty frame is surrounded by beautiful hand made roses using the Heartfelt Creations classic rose collection of stamps and dies. Each flower is hand stamped, die cut, then colored with Memento ink and layered for a beautiful full look. I used some glimmer spray to stiffen the flowers and to give them some extra sparkle. The card is filled in with some beautiful little accent leaves and swirls. The words were Die cut using the cute Valentine's 2017 collection by Lawn Fawn

I combined dog wood florals with the cross accented by gold embossed green leaves. A beautiful detailed dove also accents this beautiful card. The dog wood flowers are courtesy of the beautiful Heartfelt Creations stamp and die sets - and were hand stamped using a gold embossing powder and were than hand assembled in two layers to create a beautiful three dimensional flower. This box is very intricate and detailed.
