Sweet Sentiment Cards

Hello, sparkly friends! I hope your week is off to a beautiful start.♥︎ I'm popping in with two little cards today.

Tomorrow is the big day on HSN when a plethora of new Crafter's Companion goodies will be released! I am super excited about the new sentiment dies. They are gorgeous and make a lovely card all on their own.
Not surprisingly, one of my favorites is With Love. You know my sappy heart, after all! I adore the elegant curlicues and sweet hearts nestled within. My butterfly is from the Flutterby Create-a-Card set.
Isn't it dreamy? I paired it with the Vintage Doily die from the Vintage Tea Party collection (split in quarters to use as corner detailing) and a Decorative Ribbon die on top from the Sew Lovely collection. Once again I have used sweet papers from Sew Lovely.
Also new is this beautiful way of expressing gratitude. I paired it with one of the loveliest pieces of paper from the NEW Roaring 20's paper pack! There are gorgeous areas throughout every sheet of 12x12 paper. I offset a shadow layer of my sentiment since I used it without the background outline die. I couldn't possibly cover up this gorgeous paper.
Requiring only the simplest embellishing, I cut out a sweet fluttery friend from one of the sheets and added a touch of lace on top. Oh the joy of crafting again.♥︎

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a sunshiny day. :)

A Crafty Return (and exciting news!)

Hello, sweet friends! I cannot thank you enough for the love you have shown me over the last 8.5 months while I was away. I treasure you and have missed this precious community. It has been a tumultuous year but I am thrilled to return to my beloved crafty space.

My crafty return comes with exciting news. I am honored (and stunned) to be joining the Crafter's Companion Design Team! Color me sparkly! I adore this company for countless reasons that go far beyond the inspiring products they create. It honestly is nerve-wracking to start this journey after being away from crafting for so long, but everyone has been so encouraging. I love this team already.
Next week is a huge week for Crafter's Companion, with a plethora of new releases! Sara (the creative mastermind behind CC) will be on HSN throughout the day on November 6th to pique your creativity in the loveliest ways. It's hard to choose favorites but Enchanted Forest may win with the most magical goodies!
Along with that bountiful collection, there are also necessities such as new nesting dies. I have used the Scalloped Circles to make a card in the sweet cathedral window technique. Isn't it just darling? They are often placed like a square, but I've tilted mine and layered Scalloped and Stitch Edge Squares beneath.

The gorgeous paper is from the Sew Lovely collection, a recent launch that I love! The beautiful sentiment is from a previous CC Subscription Box, which comes your way each month with a new theme/technique. This stamp is from the Stamp & Die box, which I have anchored with the new Scalloped and Stitch Edge Hearts. My sunshiny solid paper is their dreamy pearlescent luxury cardstock.

I am elated to be back to the crafty world and look forward to sprinkling your blogs with sweet sunshine. I have missed encouraging you and being blessed by your masterpieces. Thank you for your patient love and for never, ever giving up on me. Sparkly hugs to all!
