Foil Adhesive is Awesome

Check out how great the new Foil Adhesive looks over the stamping on this card!
(I used a bit on the balloon on yesterday's card, too)
 The stamps are from Hero Arts; frame and butterfly are cricut cuts on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge; I used a border punch and ribbon to make the center section; and the card base is SU.

Have a Beautiful Day!

This is one of my favorite stamps from Sweet n Sassy.  
And the sentiments that come with it are wonderful.
I used markers and colored pencils on the image 
and then fussy cut it.

Black, White & Neon Lime Green

After cutting paper for a dozen card kits, I was left with 6 pieces of black and white paper that I was not going to save. Instead, I made two Father's Day cards for SAS4K.
 The panda stamp is from SU; sentiment is CTMH;
 and cricut cut tag is from CTMH Artiste cartridge.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #387 with The Cutting Cafe

It was really hard choosing a digital stamp set from The Cutting Cafe to use for my Tuesday Throwdown Challenge DT card this week.  There are so many digital stamps from which to choose. After deciding to use the One Spring Day set, picking which image and sentiment in the set was almost as difficult.

Here is my take on the current theme at 
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge - Creative Corners.  
 First, a layout with lots of corners and a die cut with interesting faux stitching;  Next a few dazzles on three of the corners; Two tiny punched butterflies decorate the bottom corners below the sentiment (also from the One Spring Day set); and the flower border from the set draws your eye to the bottom right corner. 
 Here is a close up of that corner.  After printing and coloring the border, I carefully added a strip of glittered clear adhesive over the row of flowers and then fussy cut before attaching it to the card.

I have seen some absolutely fabulous Creative Corners in challenges, on blogs, in magazines and on Pinterest.  Now's the time to show off your talent by entering this week's
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge,

and don't forget to take a moment to visit the shop at 
where you'll find both digital stamps and cutting files.
