Hello...

Hello! Michelle here.  I've been itching to ink up the stamp set, Friendship Floral Heart!  I opted for one of the smaller floral cluster and used it to stamp the background. I shaded the flowers and colored the background with Copic Markers in shades R00, R21, R32, R43; RV10, RV02, RV04; YR24; YG11, YG61; BG96. I splattered some white and gold paint and stickles glitter glue. 

20

I die cut Hello Banner Script Die, with a metallic adhesive backed paper I adhered to cardstock before cutting.  I inked up two strips of cardstock with the same Copic colors to match the flowers. I embossed the sentiments with rose gold embossing powder.  

20

After I assembled the card I scattered some sequins. Thanks for stopping by for peek! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Love- I Can't Get Enough
by Michelle Bala

Michelle here! Sharing a card for Valentine's Day or if you're feeling love in general {lol}. I totally love any word die and glittery paper!!!  And, I have a little tip to share with you.

Memory Box

If you're like me, you probably fell for one of those computerized cutting machines. Well, I have a ton of glitter vinyl paper that is useless because I no longer use that machine! If you adhere a piece of the glitter vinyl paper to regular cardstock it cuts perfectly with your word dies!!!!                                        10                                               

I inked up my background with Drifting Hearts Stencil and distress oxide inks in shades dried marigold, ripe persimmon, and picked raspberry.  I splattered some gold and black paint and set aside to dry.  I die cut some flowers using Single Rose Stem craft die and Single Daisy Stem craft die. I used the same distress oxide inks to color the background of the flowers. 

11

I embossed the sentiment from the stamp set Big and Little Valentines in gold embossing powder. I trimmed the cardstock and layered all the die cuts and a piece of gold tread onto the stenciled background. I embellished with some clear stickles glitter glue and some pink gems.

I hope you give this a try! Enjoy the rest of your week!

by Michelle Bala

Hello again! Michelle here,  sharing a slimline card I created using Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out craft die, Leafy Heart craft die, Gloriosa Butterfly Duo Outlines craft die and Big and Little Valentine's clear stamp set.

5

The slimline card measures 3 1/2 by 8 1/2. I trimmed the top panel and used the Double Stitch Loving Heart dies and cut three windows. I splattered some gold paint over the panel. After I die cut the Leafy Heart I used the same gold paint and brushed the leaves.  I adhered the die cut Leafy Heart to the middle heart window. Adhere the top panel to the aqua card base using foam tape. 

6

I colored the die cut butterflies with Copic Marker shades BG13 and BG18; W5 and W7. Adhere the butterflies to the card. I added some stickles clear glitter glue to the butterflies and Leafy Heart. I inked up some cardstock with the same teal markers and embossed the sentiments with gold embossing powder. For a finishing touch I scattered some sequins.

Thank you for stopping by!

I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have!

Hello !!! Michelle here!  Funny how we go from Christmas and holiday cards, right to Valentine's Day cards!  I made this card for my husband. I love the teal shades paired with black and silver. I used Leafy Heart Craft Die and die cut it two times, once on copic friendly paper the second on black cardstock.  I laid down a layer of  Copic BG11 than added some darker shades of BG15, BG34 and BG18.  I adhered the colored leaf to the black leaf cluster a bit off set. Add some silver stickles glitter glue and set aside to dry.

I inked up my background panel with tumbled glass, evergreen bough, mermaid lagoon and black soot. I splattered some white and black paint. Set aside to dry. Die cut Love Airy Script Craft Die two times, silver and black cardstock. Adhere off set.  I embossed the sentiment from Big and Little Valentine's Clear Stamp Set using silver embossing powder.

Feeling Grateful
by Michelle Bala

Hello there!  Michelle here.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        10

Today I used the stamp sets Grateful Autumn and Winter Greenery and designed a card for a friend who is always there for me :) I embossed the leaves with gold embossing powder and colored them using Copic Markers.  I used shades G40, G43, and G46 for the base and added some dots with W7, and G28. Trim and set aside.
10

I inked up the background using distress oxide inks in shades tumbled glass, shaded lilac, and chipped sapphire. I splashed some white and gold paint spaltters. After the paint dried, I stamped the background using the Winter Greenery stamp set with black ink. 
10

I adhered the embossed leaf cluster with foam tape and added some clear stickles glitter glue. Lastly, I embossed and trimmed the sentiment and added some gems.

Thank you for taking a peek! Hope you have a great day!

Merry Christmas Wishes
by Michelle Bala

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing an easy CAS design. I used the die Scribble Leaf Bundle Outline die and cut it several times on gold foil paper. I adhered the pattern onto white cardstock.  I used a glue pen to apply glue. It's less messy;)                                                                                                                    1

Next, I cut the Merry Airy Script die with red cardstock and added some shimmer with red stickles glitter glue. Lastly, I embossed the sentiment from Tidings Wreath with gold embossing powder. Adhere your sentiments and add some sequins.                                                                                                              That's all! Simple and sweet!

What do you think? I hope you like it!

Joy to the World
by Michelle Bala

26

Hello there! Michelle here, with a cute shaker card! I used the Petite Leaf Frame Die, Joy Airy Script Die, and

Merry and Bright Mistletoe Stamp Set.

28

I started off by inking up a piece of smooth Bristol cardstock with bundled sage distress oxide ink. Die cut the frame. I die cut the frame two times 

for extra leaves. I added color to the leaves with Copic Markers in shades YG61, YG63, and YG67.  I die cut the Joy sentiment and added

some shimmer with Stickles glitter glue in red. Set aside to dry. Emboss and trim the type sentiment.

27

To assemble the card, turn the leaf frame upside down and adhere a piece of clear acetate as your shaker window. Than, 

apply foam tape along the perimeter of the frame ( both squares) and all the tiny leaves.  For the shaker sequins, I like to place them

on the card base in a small cluster than place the frame on top so I can center the frame. Lastly, add the sentiments. For a finishing touch

I added some bells and twine. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Glad Tidings
by Michelle Bala

10
Hello there! Michelle here, stopping by to share a Christmas card I created using Tidings Wreath

clear stamp set.  I stamped the wreath onto Copic Marker friendly cardstock.  
10

Here is a list of the colors I chose, for the greenery: YG61, G24, YG67;  the berries: R24, R29, R59;

white/ gray: W00, W1, W2, W3, W6;  blue/ gray: BG70, BG72, BG75;

the background: V20, V22, and colorless blender.

For large images, I color a small section at a time. I don't like to color all the same- colored images at once.

I tend to get bored and make mistakes. Coloring a small section allows me to see where I want to lay my shadows.

After the image is complete, trim your panel. This card measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2.
10

I adhered the panel to a card base, than splattered some white and gold paint. After the paint splatter dries

I added some clear Stickles glitter glue. I embossed two sentiments from the same stamp set with gold embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Peace on Earth
by Michelle Bala

13

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a Christmas card using the amazing Ruffled Poinsettia Die!!! 

This card is fairly simple to create. Here is how I went about it...I die cut the poinsettia three times. 

I colored the petals, leaves, and flower centers with Copic Markers. I left the frame of the petals and leaves

white. 
13

The lighter poinsettia Copic colors: RV00, RV02, RV04.  The darker poinsettia Copic colors: RV63, RV66, RV69.

For the leaves: G40, G43, G46. For the flower centers: YR21, YR24. I splattered white paint on the leaves and petals and set aside to dry. 

I used a piece of black card stock for the background. Splattered some white and gold paint and set aside to dry.

I die cut Peace sentiment twice, once with silver glitter card stock the other with basic black card stock. I adhered them

together slightly off center to create a shadow. Emboss and trim the sentiment from the stamp set Tidings Wreath.

 
13

Assemble the card as you desire. This is the fun part! You can arrange the flowers and sentiments any way you choose!

I adhered the poinsettias first with foam tape. Than I trimmed the over hang. Than I adhered the die cut sentiment,

also with foam tape. The embossed sentiment I adhered with glue.

For a finishing touch, I added some Stickles clear glitter glue to the flower centers.

Hope you give this a try!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing an autumn card.  Today I focused on the stamp set Grateful Autumn.

Acorns are my most favorite fall item!  I started on the base of the card.  I embossed kraft cardstock background with

Wow embossing powder in metallic copper sparkle powder.  Than I splattered some white diluted paint.

I embossed several leaves and acorns and colored them with Copic Markers.  I added the Copic shades on my blog.

Trim up your leaf/ acorn combos and adhere them with foam tape.

Lastly, I embossed the sentiments with black embossing powder, trimmed them up and adhered them with foam tape.

For a finishing touch I scattered some gems.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!
