Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great week. I was in Indianapolis for a few days for work. It was a good trip but I missed my little guys. Luckily they were well behaved for dad. Today's card is one that I made for a birthday party we had a couple of weeks ago. My son had his first friend birthday party from school so I thought this set was the perfect one to use. As soon as I saw this set in the catalog I knew I was going to get it and hopefully use it quite a bit. It is so cute! I just love those dinos! Everything on this card is new except for the starburst framelits. (Boo, so sad they are gone). You could easily just use another circle cut out behind the one with the dinosaurs. The colors I used for the dinos were Tangelo Twist and Cucumber Crush. The leaves were also stamped in Cucumber Crush. I stamped them once on scrap paper and then onto the circle so they were not as bright. The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory. One thing to note is that I did stamp the sentiment 3 separate times in 3 colors and then punched the ends of the white strip with the banner punch.

Have a great weekend!

Watercolor Wings Treat Bag

Hello! It's been a while. Those kids keep my craft time limited. :) But I've been able to squeeze in some time for a few cards. I got my order from the new catalog and I just had to play! Today's card features Watercolor Wings. This set was not on my first list of things I wanted from the catalog since I already had the other butterfly die and didn't think I needed another set. Well I was wrong! I LOVE this set! The different color combinations you can make with the butterflies is so fun. I haven't had a chance to play with it to much but I can already tell it will probably be a go to set. The butterfly on today's project features Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. Ahhh such pretty blues. I also used the super cute mini treat bag (LOVE this too!). I made the treat bag with Bermuda Bay cardstock. The rest of the outside is finished with a doily, pink sequins and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter hearts. The sentiment is from the set and it's stamped on Watermelon Wonder cardstock. Inside the treat bag I used the new heavy weight white cardstock. This way it was nice and thick for the tea bag to be adhered to. I stamped the smaller butterfly in the corner with the same colors. And at the top I just stapled a Dazzling Diamond glitter banner. So cute! So what are your favorites from the new catalog? I would love to hear your favorites!

I am traveling for work this week so I'm not sure if I will have a chance to update again. I do have a couple more cards to share so I may try to schedule a post for later this week. The next card I want to share is super cute. RAWR! :)

Have a great day!
