I brought the cake!

Hello everyone!
Stephanie with you today to challenge you with a fun anything-but-square project using the amazing Polkadoodles stamps from the Time For Tea collection at LDRS Creative, along with some gorgeous flowers as always from I Am Roses. 

Have I tickled your interest, yet? Well I don't know if you're like me, but I sometimes like to get out of my comfort zone and try new folding techniques. Not that there's anything bad with plain old square or A5, it's just... you know... different ;-) And since we have so many great products in store, I figured this new shape would give me the perfect opportunity to feature them!

I used the adorable "I brought the cake" and coloured her up with my Copic markers. Of course, I used the same combo that was selected from the Daisy Daisy 6x6 paperpad (that is currently out-of-stock, oops!). Once she was all coloured up, I used a shape from the Fancy Rectangles & Layers Die Set to piece her out and layer her onto a second rectangle, for more dimension.

The Timeless Pocket Watch Die Set has such a vintage look, I think it was the perfect addition to this project! Oh and can you spot the Scalloped Swag Border Die in there? Delicate, but quite elegant to use it as a finishing touch.

Now, I see you all wondering how I did it, right? Here's a simple sketch for you to follow (score at dotted lines, cut the two triangles parts and fold the rest). BUT I also have a short video to show you the whole process. Fun, eh? There's no voiceover, so you can sit back and relax or simply turn off the music that I chose!




And do make sure to notice the gorgeous flowers that I use in there! Of course, I didn't have much space or much cardstock to support the weight of heavy embellishments, but I thought they were quite lovely next to this young lady!
As always, I used amazing products from I Am Rosessmall rosescherry blossoms and a large gardenia.

Until next time :-)

Molly's Winter Friends!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Normally in Texas we have over 100 degree weather in August for several weeks, but this August has had some cooler days. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to the cooler weather! I love fall, but I also LOVE white winters. We don't get much of that in Texas (just cold and ice). I grew up in Germany and the winters were so beautiful, especially around Christmas. I long to go back to Europe for the holidays. Hopefully one day that will happen.
 
Today I'm showcasing the beautiful paper flowers from I Am Roses with Conie Fong's Molly's Winter Friends. I love all of Conie's digital stamps and this one is so adorable, and of course reminds me of Germany. :)

I used papers from My Mind's Eye Sugar Plum 6x6 Paper Pad. The sentiment is from MME Winter Wonderland paper pad. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash. 
 
 
Now, don't forget to come play along with us on the IAR Challenge Blog using flowers from the IAR STORE. You have until SEPTEMBER 8th to link up your project, but remember you must use at least 2 items from I Am Roses. There are 4 prizes to be won so I hope you join us!!

Smile Generously

Good morning, all!

Stephanie with you today to feature some gorgeous products from LDRS Creative and I Am Roses. I can't help it, I feel like they come together so beautifully! 

I first inked a stamp from the All Dressed Up line named Everything For Walkies and cropped it so that the halo from the lamppost would be the focal point of the card, popped onto the Dotty Doily die set from Polkadoodles. It is paired with the Daisy Daisy 6"x6" paper collection for some blue hues that are as soft as the chosen sentiment from the Magnolia Splendor set by TLC that was inked on a Regal Frame die-cut. And can you spot the Majestic Frame die hidden on there as well?

After that came the easiest part: choosing the right flowers to match the card.



A few close-ups...





Here are the flowers from I Am Roses that I used:

Also, as some people are already prepping for their Christmas stash, make sure to order from our special Christmas section!

I hope to have inspired you with this project and to encourage you to smile generously, too :-)
