This week over at Joy's Life DT, we are making some projects using flowers! Spring is almost here!! I, for one, am SO excited for it to come! This cold weather is just way too cold! LOL!

So, making a card with flowers is just one step closer to warmer weather! ;)

I used "Congratulations" from the Mother/Daughter set to make my card today! I used some paper I got from Webster's and black felt ribbon. The flowers are Prima flowers...Gorgeous!!

And here is a close-up of the fabulous stamp!

Sorry for the short & sweet post, but it has been a long week here and this coming week will be just as long!! Hope to be back soon! :)

Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥

Happy Birthday Joy!!

This is a very special post for a very special lady! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOY!! This week is Joy's birthday and the whole DT is making & sending her cards for her birthday! Joy, you are an amazing DT leader and I am honored to be part of the fabulous team! You are such a JOY to work with! You make us laugh daily and you make some AMAZING stamps! ;)

Here is my card for you....

I used "Wishing You a Banner Year" from You're So Punny, so I of course had to make a banner on my card! I used my SU banner punch and cut out the letters JOY on my Cricut (Alphalicious 3/4") I used some gorgeous paper from The Mariposa stack from DCWV...I used Gathered Twigs Distress Inks to ink the edges of everything and to ink up my stamp. The paper already had some sparkle to it but I added Diamond Stickles to the banner & stamp.

Here is a close-up of the fabulous stamp...

Thanks for visiting today & if you get a chance, hop on over to Joy's Blog and wish her a Happy Birthday!! Have a great day!

Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥

Joyful Hearts & Love Always

I can't believe it's almost Valentine's Day!! Where has the beginning of this year gone?? Before I know it, my oldest will be going to prom & graduating! <tear tear> 

Today I am showing you a Valentine's tag I made for Joy's Life DT....

I really love how the swirly background came out! I used Distress stain in silver to coat my tag (When I applied it, I did it in a circular motion) Then I sponged on Seedless Preserves over that. I then spritzed it with water and sponged more Seedless Preserves again. I stamped my hearts on a pink patterned paper and punched them out with my heart punch and inked the edges with Seedless Preserves.I popped them up with pop dots and stamped "Love Always" in the bottom corner. I also distressed the edges of the tag and inked it with Seedless Preserves. 

Here is a close-up of the awesome stamps...

Look at the details on that heart stamp!! Amazing quality in these stamps! :) I hope everyone has a super Valentine's Day!

Joy's Life DT 3D Animals & Card Fold Blog Hop

Welcome to Joy's Life DT 3D Animals & Card Fold Blog Hop! Whew! That was a mouthful!! Well let's get down to business! First things should have come from Kimberly's blog but if you just stumbled in here you might want to start at the beginning at Joy's blog to get in on all the fun!

I decided to use "Bee Mine" from Lots of Puns and do a Valentine Tri-Shutter card. I got the instructions on SplitCoastStampers...

I used a white base and inked it with Squeezed Lemonade & Black Soot Distress Ink. I used DCWV Lemon Flower paper stack to decorate the panels and the heart stamp from Lots of Puns. I put my little bee on an Action Wobble to give it that little punch of fun!

Here is a close-up of the fabulous stamps!

Now to finish up this fabulous hop, head on back to Joy's blog! Here is the full line-up in case you need to go back to any of the blogs throughout the hop!


Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥

Baby Shower Banner

Wow! Two posts in two days?? LOL! I wish I could get back to blogging on a regular basis, I have been crafting like crazy, but just have't posted anything! =/

But I just had to show off this banner....Excuse the mess in the background! Banners are hard to photograph! I cut the banner from Birthday Bash at 5.5 inches and the letters are from Alphalicious cut at 4"

I was very pleased with how this turned out and and I hope the mother-to-be enjoys it too! Well, since I'm on a roll maybe I will post some more this week!  Thanks for stopping by! 

Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥

Love Always

Hello! Today is my day to post over at Joy's Life DT and this week we are doing LOVE themed projects using 2 of Joy's sets Joyful Hearts & Tag You're It ONE. I made a Valentine card using one of the hearts from Joyful Hearts & "Love Always" from TYI1.

I used Bubble Gum Pink Dylusions & Gold Shimmer Spritz for the back ground. I stamped the hearts in black on another sheet I had sprayed and punched them out with my heart punch. I inked the edges with black and popped them up with pop dots.  I distressed the edges and inked them in black too, then stamped the small heart scoll on the corners. I also added some rhinestones in the centers of the hearts. 

Here is a close-up....
